You dream of waves, crashing on cliffsides.

The Distant Roost is a bleak, dreary mountain region located on Petrichor V and is one of the initial Environments encountered in Risk of Rain 2.

Logbook View

Spires of earth jut through the fog and unknown avian creatures circle far peaks guarding their broods.

There are currently two variants of Distant Roost.

Monsters[edit | edit source]

Newt Altars[edit | edit source]

The Newt Altars can spawn at several locations for each variant of the Distant Roost.

  • Original Variant Locations.
  1. Located down the gap near the land bridge, atop the bigger rock protruding from the wall.
  2. Behind the rock located on the upper ledge of the island.
  3. Within the door area, behind the fallen pillar and next to the mossy rock.
  • Altered Variant Locations
  1. Atop the arch within the cave.
  2. Within the door area, at the very edge to the left.
  3. Located under the several smaller land bridges.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Each variant of the stage has a big stone door that may be opened or closed. If opened, it gives access to a new area where chests, a Newt Altar and/or a Teleporter can spawn. If closed, no chest will spawn in the locked area.
  • Towards the distant edges of the map, there are flying, passive monsters that can be killed with certain long-range abilities, such as MUL-T's Rebar Puncher and Commando's Phase Round. They have 1 health, and do not provide gold or experience when killed.
    • The name of the monsters are called Birdsharks, created accidentally when Hopoo messed up when trying to create a model for grass.
  • The internal development name for Distant Roost is Black Beach.[1]
  • The remains of a Colossus from the original Risk of Rain can be seen outside the edge of the alternative variant of the stage.
