Among the currencies in Risk of Rain 2, Lunar Coins rate highly for their rarity and desirability. You can use them to buy several Lunar items from the Bazaar Between Realms and unlock a new survivor, the Artificer. The main barrier is that they’re pretty hard to obtain. It would be best if you defeated many enemies, and their drop rate is abysmal at only a paltry 0.5% drop rate. For most players, this would be prohibitive, but fortunately for the PC crowd, there’s a way to circumvent this by dabbling in a little bit of cheating. It’s pretty simple to do, and it will save you a lot of time in the process if you’re not looking to grind for hours or even days. Here’s how to get unlimited Lunar Coins in Risk of Rain 2 on PC.

How to get unlimited Lunar Coins in Risk of Rain 2

To get unlimited Lunar Coins in Risk of Rain 2 you must be playing the game’s PC version. Follow these steps to do it:

  1. Make sure that your Steam client is closed. Even if it’s minimized, right-click on it and select Exit.
  2. Navigate to your Steam library folder on the PC. By default, the path should look like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata
  3. Find the folder with the name 632360 and open it.
  4. Go to the Remote folder, followed by the UserProfiles folder.
  5. Locate the XML document there and open it with a text editor. Notepad or Notepad++ should do.
  6. Look for the line: <coin>number</coin> (with the number between the brackets being the number of Lunar Coins you currently have). If you can’t find it, press Ctrl+F and search for <coin> to locate it.
  7. Change the number value to the amount you want, giving you that many Lunar Coins.
  8. Make sure to save the XML document first, then close it and the folder.
  9. Start the Steam launcher again, and launch Risk of Rain 2. You should now have the amount of Lunar Coins that you’ve entered in your possession.
