Risk of Rain 2 features a diverse roster of survivors, each having unique abilities. Since the game’s launch, Hopoo Games developers have brought new playable characters, each time giving more reasons to replay Risk of Rain 2. However, if you cannot wait for the developers to release official characters in the game, you can always download the Risk of Rain 2 mods and experience runs from a different angle.
Modders have created many RoR 2 mods to counter the inevitable boredom, supporting the game unofficially. Unfortunately, these mods are not available on Xbox and PlayStation consoles, and you can only mod the game if you are on a PC.

This mod is inspired by the Bandit playable character in Risk of Rain 2. Even most of the modded character’s abilities resemble quite closely with Bandit. Modder Dragonyck designed the character, its abilities, various skins, new unlockables, and bonus content related to the Gunslinger survivor.
Androxus, a playable champion from Paladins, is also an unlockable skin of Gunslinger that can be equipped after completing Gunslinger: Mastery Challenge. On the topic of Paladins, if you want to know more about the game’s champions, check out the Risk of Rain 2 tier list guide here that ranks all playable characters from the best to the worst in the current meta.
Modder Rob managed to re-create the character in 3D and added the Miner to the expanding list of Risk of Rain 2 mods – rejoice and live the nostalgia. Additionally, the Miner mod features at least three abilities that were also part of the character in the first game: Drill Charge, BackBlast, and To The Stars!
If you download the ‘MinerUnearthed’ mod, you will also get a custom boss mod called Direseeker, which is also taken from the original Risk of Rain game. You can use Miner in multiplayer mode and enjoy companionship with other survivors from a unique perspective.
Just like Miner, Enforcer is another character from the first game that can be made playable by using the mod by Enforcer Gang. This survivor uses a large-sized shield for offense and defense. Other than that, he has a high-impact shotgun that comes with three alternate unlockable modes.
Modder Rein created the Sniper character mod from the ground up. On a side note, his movement style may resemble Huntress. The primary weapon, sniper rifle, is the go-to arsenal for this playable character which deals 600% to 900% damage to enemies. The quickscope ability allows extra damage but can be used conveniently from a distance.
To use the Sniper character in multiplayer, all other players joining the lobby must equip the same mod; otherwise, the game does not allow random survivors to join the lobby.
The Backflip and Blink Knife abilities are designed to give a retreating opportunity to the Sniper character and at the same time land a couple of hits as well. In a similar context, the Rebar Puncher ability of MUL-T is also a great addition to the character should players want to experience a sniper-esque playstyle in Risk of Rain 2.
Ever wonder if you could play as a Lemurian in Risk of Rain 2? If you did, then you are in for a treat. Modder Tymmey successfully managed to make this enemy a playable character/survivor through a mod. Most of the modded character’s abilities are heavily influenced by the Artificer survivor in the game.
Other than playing with the fire-spewing Lemurian, you can also use his Imp buddy and the Lunar Exploder through the mod in Risk of Rain 2. You can use the mod in multiplayer games as well. However, players have reported a lag while spawning the fire projectiles on the enemies.
As self-explanatory as the name of mod is, modder MagnusMagnuson revitalized the contents a survivor can buy while exploring the hidden realm Bazaar Between Time. After using Lunar Coin at a Newt Altar, the blue portal takes you to Newt, the merchant selling Lunar items and others in the said hidden realm.
Besides Lunar coins, after applying the mod to your game, you can use the gold to purchase the items as well from Newt. Additionally, you have the liberty to configure the mod settings and adjust the base cost and rarity of items appearing at Newt’s shop.
Released nearly ten months ago, modder Rob included a Dante-like character in the game and integrated the unique combo style ranking of Devil May Cry games into the mod as well. I have always loved all DMC games, and maybe that is why out of all Risk of Rain 2 mods, this one is close to my heart.
Aatrox sacrifices its health to execute high-impact combos on the monsters in the game. Most of his attacks drain his health and inflict heavy damage on the enemies, making Aatrox mod a high-risk, high-reward character in the game. He uses a long sword to deal with thrust, and uppercut attacks, and executes three combo attacks.
If you can play as Dante in Risk of Rain 2, prepare yourself to play as a Saiyan. Modder Kinggrinyov created a fully functional Goku enabling players to obliterate monsters in the game using Kamehameha, and Spirit Bomb signature attacks.
Using the Ki Charge ability, Goku accumulates inner energy from the surroundings of Petrichor V planet and unleashes it on the monsters. Besides his signature moves, Goku can also strike enemies in close combat using fists. Most of his attacks deal a good amount of damage to the monsters, and his powerful fists resemble closely with Charged Gauntlet ability of Loader survivor.
While playing multiplayer in Risk of Rain 2, players often steal items that may drop after killing the boss or spawned after purchase from a loot chest. It adds a tad bit of frustration because while playing with random players without communication, you tend to miss out on items that others take away accidentally.
To balance out this problem, modder FunkFrog-and-Sipondo created an item-sharing mod that allows you to tweak features granting equal sharing or hoarding of items while playing multiplayer games in Risk of Rain 2. Out of all the RoR 2 mods mentioned above, ShareSuite takes the cake if you love hanging out with other players in multiplayer games. Here is a list of features the mod currently offers to the players.
Multitudes By Wildbook
Multitudes player scaling mod by Wildbook easily convinces the game into thinking a higher player count is entering the game’s world. Unfortunately, applying the mod takes some time as the game loads assets based on the higher number of players approaching the level. However, you will find stages in Risk of Rain 2 riddled with enemies and loot once it loads.
