Risk of Rain 2 Wiki

The Prismatic Trial is a special, solo-only game mode where players compete for the fastest time of completing 2 stages. However, to initiate the Teleporter Event, the player must destroy three of a handful of Time Crystals scattered across the map. These crystals explode when destroyed, dealing moderate damage to players and monsters alike. Unlike in standard gameplay, the Teleporter charges instantly once the Teleporter Boss has been defeated.

Prismatic Trials feature a set of two Environments on Rainstorm.png Rainstorm difficulty, starting cash, and random artifact selections. The only adjustments a player can make are the selected Survivor and their skill loadout.

Prismatic Trials cannot be accessed if the player has installed mods.

Currently, the Prismatic Trial's only in-game purpose is to unlock Slicing Winds.png Slicing Winds and Harvester's Scythe.png Harvester's ScytheBgUncommon.pngHarvester's Scythe.png'Critical Strikes' heal you.
Gain 5% critical chance. Critical strikes heal for 8 (+4 per stack) health.


  • Every 3 days (72 hours), a new seed is generated for the Prismatic Trial. This seed is the same for all players, but has different artifacts on console.
  • Seeds affect stage rotations, interactables' locations and drops, bosses, monster spawn timing, and activated artifacts.
  • Player choices may affect some outcomes of the seed. For example, if the player visits the Bazaar Between Time.png Bazaar Between Time after the 1st stage, the 2nd stage will have a different spawn location and teleporter location.
  • Seeds are not the same for consoles and PC.



  • Since the monster spawns and item drops from interactables are the same every playthrough, it is possible to memorize them and create strategies for each Prismatic Trial seed.
  • If Sky Meadow.png Sky Meadow is the second stage, it is possible to skip the Teleporter event (without destroying Time Crystals or fighting a Teleporter Boss) entirely by submitting an artifact code and entering the artifact portal.
    • If Sky Meadow is the first stage, entering the artifact portal will take the player to the Bulwark's Ambry.png Bulwark's Ambry.
