How to Obtain Lunar Coins?

As of the game’s current state, a lunar coin can drop with a 0.5% chance from an enemy. The more you receive lunar items from enemies, the less its chance to drop becomes. Figuratively, every time you pick a lunar coin after killing an enemy, the drop rate is cut to half. Considering the original 0.5% drop rate, which is quite slim, getting lunar coins back to back while doing runs is out of the question. So, how do you get more coins?

Lunar Coins Location

Other than beating monsters to death and hoping to get a Lunar coin, what you can do is visit the following places to guarantee receiving, not just one but many Lunar coins.

Obelisk

After reaching Bazaar Between Time, go through Void Fields and advance further in the Hidden Realm. You will reach an object called Obelisk, which allows your survivor to obliterate. Doing so will end your run, but it will give you 5 Lunar coins.

A Moment, Whole

Again, to reach here, you need to be in front of Obelisk. If you or your teammate holds Beads of Fealty item, proceeding with obliterate option will not perish you or other survivors. Instead, the Obelisk will take you further deep into another Hidden Realm environment. Next, you will be tasked to kill a Twisted Scavenger, who drops 10 Risk of Rain 2 Lunar coins. If you pull this off, you will get a total of 15 Lunar coins (five from Obelisk and ten from the Twisted Scavenger).

Commencement

After reaching the Moon, the final stage in the game, you will need to beat the final boss, Mithrix, and escape using the rescue ship. Doing so not only rewards you with 10 Lunar coins but also unlocks Captain survivor.

How to Farm the Lunar Coins

If you need more Lunar coins than from the places mentioned above, you need to farm them. One of the easiest ways we recommend is picking up ‘Forgive Me Please’ and ‘Soulbound Catalyst’ equipment. The former essentially charges a Resonance Disc whenever you kill enemies, and the latter reduces equipment cooldown by four seconds at every kill.

Forgive Me Please and Soulbound Catalyst Equipment

To be specific, if you kill four enemies in 7 seconds, the disc will be charged, and it will launch itself towards enemies for explosive damage. The more enemies you kill using this method, the higher the equipment cooldown and the increased drop rate of Lunar coins drop. To speed up the process, we highly recommend bringing in a companion.
