Items are special collectibles that spawn while playing the game.
Players can pick items up to gain a special effect based upon what type of item it is. Each item's icon also has a colored border to indicate its rarity:
- White (Common)
- Green (Uncommon)
- Red (Legendary)
- Yellow (Boss)
- Blue (Lunar Items/Equipment)
- Orange (Equipment)
Some items need to be unlocked by completing a Challenge to appear in game. Pick up an item to unlock logbook entry.
There are currently 116 items in the game as of the Hidden Realms Update. You can find a list of all these items below
A passive item visually appears in the top bar in-game and provides a certain benefit to a player (or in some cases, a drawback), specific to that item, as long as it is in a player's inventory. If it is removed from their inventory (e.g. by using a 3D printer), they no longer are affected by that item's effects.
There is no limit to how many different types of passive item, or how many of a passive item a player can hold at any one time. Multiples of a specific item stack the item's effects in a particular manner, instead of each affecting the player individually. See: Item Stacking
Common items will probably be the first items a player will obtain in their game. Despite this, they still can be extremely powerful in large quantities, and thus should not be underestimated. There are many ways to obtain common items, such as normal Chests, killing teleporter bosses, or using a 3D printer, but four common items can also obtained by stabilizing the 1st - 4th cell event while in the Void Fields. There are currently 23 Common Items.

Most commonly, they will be found in Large Chests, but can also be found in the Bazaar Between Time's trade-in crucible for 3 Common items, by stabilizing the 5th - 8th cell event while in the Void Fields, or by killing Kjaro and Runald within the Abandoned Aqueduct (granting specifically Kjaro's Band and Runald's Band).

There are more efficient ways to obtain Legendary items such as the Bazaar Between Time's trade-in crucibles for 5 Uncommon items, killing the Alloy Worship Unit in Siren's Call, or by stabilizing the last cell event while in the Void Fields.

Boss items are uncommon items that may drop as rewards for defeating certain teleporter bosses. They cannot be obtained from chests or other loot structures, and each boss item may only drop if its respective boss monster spawned as the teleporter boss (e.g. if the teleporter boss is a Stone TItan, it will never drop a Genesis Loop, but the same Stone Titan does have the chance to drop a Titanic Knurl).
The exceptions to this rule are the two pearl items, which can only be obtained by trading Lunar items (not lunar coins) in at Cleansing Pools. There are currently 7 boss items.
|Genesis Loop||Falling below 25% health causes you to explode, dealing 6000% base damage. Recharges every 30 seconds (-50% per stack).||Wandering Vagrant|
|Halcyon Seed||Summon Aurelionite during the teleporter event. It has 100% (+50% per stack) damage and 100% (+100% per stack) health.||Aurelionite|

|Little Disciple||Fire a tracking wisp for 100% (+100% per stack) damage. Fires every 0.5 seconds while sprinting.||Grovetender|
|Pearl||Increases maximum health by 10% (+10% per stack).||Cleansing Pool|
|Queen's Gland||Every 30 seconds, summon a Beetle Guard with bonus 300% damage and 100% health. Can have up to 1 (+1 per stack) Guards at a time.||Beetle Queen|
|Titanic Knurl||Increase maximum health by 40 (+40 per stack) and health regeneration by 1.6 (+1.6 per stack) health / second.||Stone Titan|
Lunar items are a new tier of items introduced in Risk of Rain 2. For the most part, a lunar item is characterized by their powerful abilities, but with the cost of having considerable drawbacks. (e.g. Corpsebloom increases all healing by 100%, but all healing is applied over time.)
Chests and other common loot structures will never drop Lunar items; as such the only ways to obtain them are from Lunar Pods found rarely throughout environments or from the Bazaar Between Time. Both methods require spending Lunar Coins, as opposed to Gold. There are currently 8 passive Lunar Items.
|Beads of Fealty||Seems to do nothing... but...|
|Brittle Crown||30% chance on hit to gain 2 gold (+2 per stack). Scales over time.|
|Corpsebloom||Heal +100% (+100% per stack) more. All healing is applied over time. Can heal for a maximum of 10% (reduced by 50% per stack) of your health per second.|
|Gesture of the Drowned||Reduce Equipment cooldown by 50% (+15% per stack). Forces your Equipment to activate whenever it is off cooldown.|
|Shaped Glass||Increase base damage by 100% (+100% per stack). Reduce maximum health by 50% (+50% per stack).|
|Strides of Heresy||Replace your Utility Skill with Shadowfade.|
|Transcendence||Convert all but 1 health into regenerating shields. Gain 50% (+25% per stack) maximum health.|
|Visions of Heresy||Replace your Primary Skill with Hungering Gaze.
Fire a flurry of tracking shards that detonate after a delay, dealing 120% base damage. Hold up to 12 charges (+12 per stack) that reload after 2 seconds (+2 per stack).
An active item ("Equipment") often provides no benefit unless it is used by the player (as they would one of their abilities), which provides a powerful effect but incurs a comparatively lengthy cool-down period during which it (or other active items) can't be used by that player again. A player can normally hold only one active item at any time; if they try to pick up an active item while they are already holding one, they will swap it for the new one instead.
The exception to this rule is MUL-T, as using their Retool special swaps to their exclusive second equipment slot and back. There are currently 16 Active items.

Similar to passive Lunar items, Lunar Equipment can only be obtained from Lunar Pods or the Bazaar Between Time in exchange for Lunar Coins, and have both a positive and negitive effect tied to them. The only difference is that these lunar items reqire an equipment slot in order to use. There are currently 4 Lunar Equipment items.

When the Tonic wears off, you have a 20% chance to gain a Tonic Affliction, reducing all of your stats by -5% (-5% per stack).
Elite Equipment are unique items that grant the player the abilities of Elite enemies. Despite inhabiting the same slots as active items, Elite Equipment more closely resemble passive items; their benefits are present at all times while in a player's inventory. As such, the players need not activate Elite Equipment and the use of one does not incur a cool-down period. However, Elite Equipment is still restricted to the active item slot, meaning they cannot be stacked and only one may be active at a time. An Elite Equipment can only be obtained as a rare drop from its respective elite type. There are currently 5 Elite Equipment items.
