Risk of Rain 2 Wiki

Environments are the playable stages within Risk of Rain 2. Traveling between main environments is done via the Teleporter. There are currently nine main environments available to be explored. After finishing the fifth environment, the challenge Deja Vu? is unlocked and the stage sequence loops. It is not possible to visit multiple environments of one stage in a single loop.

Each environment has three or more stage variations, with most changes being single features, such as a door being opened to reveal extended areas. Environments can contain secrets, and hidden treasures.

Hidden realms are environments not accessible through stage loops. These environments usually have requirements that need to be met to be accessed.

First Stages[]

Second Stages[]

Fifth Stage[]

Final Stage[]

Hidden Realms[]

Also known as intermission stages. Mysterious places where time seems to stop.

Environment Logs are found within each Hidden Realm. Upon being picked up, they unlock the Logbook Entry for the corresponding environment. They appear as a small shiny book on the ground in a set location and will always spawn. If you are playing in a group, only one member of the party needs to pick up the log for everyone to get the Logbook Entry.

Looping[]

"Loop" redirects here. For the item, see Genesis Loop Genesis LoopBgBossGenesis LoopGenesis Loop
Fire an electric nova at low health.

Falling below 25% health causes you to explode, dealing 6000% base damage. Recharges every 30 / (2 +1 per stack) seconds .
.

Looping occurs after leaving the Sky Meadow by using the Primordial Teleporter in its shifted state, or by exiting through a portal to a Hidden Realm such as Bulwark's Ambry or the Bazaar Between Time regardless of the Primordial Teleporter's alignment. Once this is done, the game will loop around to the first Environment set. This repeats infinitely until the player obliterates themselves at the Obelisk in a Celestial Portal, beats the game, or dies.

Once the player loops, several stages will have new enemies spawn on them, these being;

Additionally, after looping, monsters can spawn as Malachite and Celestine Elites.

However, it would be more accurate to say that the game does not have a concept of "looping", but instead counts the number of stages cleared. For example, Malachite and Celestine Elites (Tier 2 Elites) are available for spawning from stage 6 and onwards. In a normal game, that would be the first set of Environments after looping. But visiting the Bulwark's Ambry after Sky Meadow makes this the 6th stage and Tier 2 Elites can spawn there. Additionally, with the DissonanceArtifact of Dissonance, Tier 2 Elites can also spawn on Commencement, since it also counts as the 6th stage.

Another example of this technicality is the Jellyfish spawning on Distant Roost after looping. In actuality, the Jellyfish can spawn on Distant Roost if it is at least the second stage. In a normal game, this can only be observed after looping, but playing in a game mode that selects Distant Roost as other than the first Environment, the Jellyfish would spawn even before "looping".

In summary, all Interactables, Monsters, and Family Events have minimum stage restrictions before they can spawned, which are not accurately tied to the definition of "looping" above.

Doing one full loop completes the challenge Deja Vu?. This challenge does not simply count reaching stage 6 and it does require you to loop back to the first Environment set.
