How To Unlock Enforcer 

All bosses that are required to unlock the Enforcer [Image by me]
To unlock The Enforcer, you must defeat three specific bosses” Colossus, Magma Worm, and Lynx Totem. 

In each stage of Risk Of Rain, you need to find a teleporter that activates and summons a boss. Defeating the boss and spending 90 seconds in each stage will let you win. To unlock Enforcer, all you need to do is defeat the boss. Dying after defeating the boss will not reset the progress.

Following are the three bosses that you need to defeat:

  • Colossus: It is a huge golem that can stomp and summon other golems. To defeat Colossus, you just need to find a place where it cannot reach and keep attacking it.
  • Magma Worm: It is a giant worm that jumps in and out of the ground. You must keep moving and attacking to be able to defeat it.
  • Lynx Totem: As the name suggests, it is a totem. It can summon totem tribesmen and change some of the terrain to obscure your path. All you need to do is use a ranged character to attack as it is very slow-moving.

Riot Shotgun is the primary move of the Enforcer. As the name suggests, it is a shotgun that can do 160% damage. But because it is a shotgun, it has a small range. It can hit all enemies at once if they are in the range of the Enforcer’s shotgun. The damage can cover up for the loss of the range. It has a 0-second cooldown.

2. Shield Slam

The Shield Slam allows the Enforcer to use his shield to knock away any enemies that come too close. It does 210% damage and is especially useful when you are getting overpowered by a group of enemies. Shield Slam can also be used when you need an escape. It has a 5-second cooldown.

3. Protect And Serve

The Protect And Serve skill is a defensive skill rather than an offensive one. It allows the Enforcer to use his shield to make him immune to any damage he deals with from one side. The skill is most useful when you are pushed against a wall. Using Protect and Serve also increases the attack speed as well. It has a 5-second cooldown.

4. Crowd Control

The Crowd Control skill lets the enforcer throw a grenade at enemies. Not only does it do 250% damage, but it also stuns the enemies. The skill can be very useful against hordes of enemies when they are chasing you. The stun can let you kill enemies with ease as well. 

Best Items For Enforcer

There are many items in Risk Of Rain Returns, but some work better with certain characters than others. The Enforcer is a slow character, plus he has to use a shotgun, which makes his range much smaller than other characters. 

The following are the best items that you can use with the Enforcer:

  • Prison Shackles
  • Warbanner 
  • Leeching Seed 
  • Foreign Fruit
  • Soldier’s Syringe

My Thoughts On The Enforcer

As mentioned earlier, the Enforcer is one of the best characters in Risk Of Rain returns. That is because of the Protect And Serve skill. If you hug a wall from your back and use it, you will have almost zero blindspots. This makes Enforcer almost invincible. The only enemies who can hurt him in this way are Jellyfishes and Magma Worm. 

Enforcer is one of the short-range characters like Acrid or Miner, but because of his skills, he stands out from them. You can use specific artifacts to improve the performance of Enforcer as well. Health items like Bitter Root are also a great help for Enforcer in general.
