Not to be confused with the enemy from the first game, the Rock Golem, or the Boss, Stone Titan.
The Stone Golem is a returning enemy in Risk of Rain 2.
Like their first iterations, the Stone Golems will too spawn by building up from the very soil. Unlike the original, however, their primary mode of attack is a powerful laser-blast fired from their eye, though they do retain their devastating clap.
The Stone Golem can be stunned if damaged sufficiently. This will stop them from attacking or charging their laser, and generally happens when they are at ~40% hp.
Although normal Golems are usually more annoying (given how spongy they are) than dangerous, a Blazing Elite Golem can usually be devastatingly powerful, killing the player with one or two lasers.
