Risk of Rain 2 – What Are Loadouts, And How To Unlock Them

Recommended Videos

Skills 2.0 is bringing one of the most exciting changes to Risk of Rain 2 since the game’s release in the form of Loadouts. When you unlock Loadouts, it will give the ability to pick new variations on your skills and abilities, bringing some personal style and flair to how you play each Survivor.

What Are Loadouts?

Loadouts are new variations of Survivors skills. The engineer can place two turrets that will sit there and churn out damage, but what if you could alter the turrets to walk around and shoot lasers? Exciting, right? Well, you can! Each Survivor will have some variant skills that you will be able to choose from, but you will need to unlock them first.

How To Unlock Loadouts

To unlock Loadouts, you need to complete the special challenges for each Survivor, unlocking the challenges will open up a Loadout option for that Survivor. Some of these are tough, so it will take some work to be able to unlock them all.
