Risk of Rain 2 - Artifacts Guide: Patterns and Locations

Written by mantra   /   Apr 6, 2020    


Showing locations and pattern inputs for Risk of Rain 2 artifacts.

How to Unlock



In order to unlock the artifact, you will have to complete a challenge in Bulwark's Ambry. To access this hidden realm, travel underneath the map in Sky Meadow and input a pattern, then confirm on the screen behind the pattern input area (You do not need to see the pattern to input it). If you entered a correct pattern, the teleporter will open a portal. If you enter an incorrect pattern it will fail and you can try again.



Once in Bulwark's Ambry, you will find an Artifact Key in this location. Pick it up, move to the center orb, and use the key.



Monsters will begin spawning and the orb will begin shooting as well. The orb can only be damaged by Artifact Keys.



Killing monsters gives a chance to drop more Artifact Keys to grab and attack the orb with.



Once the orb has no HP remaining, all monsters will disappear and you will be able to grab the artifact.



After grabbing the artifact, a portal will appear to return and start a new loop.
