Risk of Rain Wiki

A complete Item Log

For the items in Risk of Rain 2, see Item (Risk of Rain 2).

This page is simply a copy of the other Items Page, just with the passive items uncategorized and organized in one big list, similar to the Risk of Rain 2 Wiki's layout.

An Item is a randomized collectible that spawns over the course of the game. There is no limit to how many items the player can hold at once. Each item has a colored border around them that indicates their rarity:

1 - only found by killing boss enemies
2 - although usable items technically have their own rarity as dictated by their border, they actually have individual drop rates (for example, a Captain's Brooch has a lower likelihood of dropping than a Foreign Fruit)

Items can be found inside Chests, Shops and Roulette Chambers. Large Containers also have a chance (albeit small) to have an item inside them along with the standard health, gold and experience. Shrines (both the gold and health variants) can also give the player items, however this is not guaranteed. Boss enemies will always drop an item when killed, and each Boss has a chance of dropping an item that is unique to them. Items take 30 seconds to disappear when left on the ground.

Use Items[]

Use Items are different in their workings - unlike passive items, the player can only have one type of use item at a time and cannot stack it repeatedly; however, should they find another Use Item during gameplay, they can choose to swap between the two. This opens up a multitude of strategies, both for specific classes and for players themselves. Use Items will disappear after a certain amount of time if they are left on the floor.

If a Use Item is on cooldown when swapped with another, the new one will still have to wait for the old one's cooldown to end before it can be used.

All the artifacts.

Artifacts are really just ways to alter how the game is played, and once collected, add additional game options at the character select screen. Some, like Command, are just better for the player. Others, like Distortion, make the game significantly harder. Others are mixed, such as Spirit, offering benefits to the player and enemies alike.

These can be collected in multiplayer, and as long as one person playing has collected the artifact the option can be enabled (although collections must be done independently for all players to use the artifact in single player); i.e. it's not limited to the host[verification needed]. Artifacts can be collected on
