Risk of Rain 2 items And How to Unlock


Any person who has ever played any kind of shooting video game understands the importance of items (or add-ons) in the game.
This holds not only good for weapons but all support equipment like maps, health potions, shields and superpowers.
The same holds good for Risk of Rain 2 items which are based on a tier system.
The higher tier item you have, the better surviving and fighting skills you will own.
This post looks at all the possibilities for Risk of Rain 2 items that include types, identification, and methods to unlock these items.
If you like to know more about ROR2 characters read this source.


Basically, there are two types of items in the game that includes Passive and Active items.
A Passive Item is one that is constantly in use by the character.
The best example of such an item is Energy Drink, which increases the sprint speed by 30%.
However, an Active Item is a onetime use thing that can be used only once.
Not only can it be used only once, but it can also be held in one time of instance meaning that if you have an Active item in your hand, you will not be able to carry anything else.
The best example for an Active item is Milky Chrysalis which gives you flying ability for 15 seconds before they are completely consumed.

Each item is coded with color that indicates the rarity or strength of the item.
As a thumb rule, the following color codes are used

White – Common Items
Green – Rare Items
Red – Legendary Items
Yellow – Boss Items
Blue – Lunar Items (extra powers but with a drawback)
Orange – Active Items (all of the above are Passive)

The table below identifies each object and its usage in the game.
