Risk of Rain 2 Artifact Codes - All Artifacts, Effects, & Where to Enter

Posted on by justin
Activating artifact codes in Risk of Rain 2 shakes things up with many wild new effects, including friendly fire, elite enemies, augmented spawn rates, massive damage buffs paired with health nerfs, and plenty more. Entering these codes adds tons of replayability and extra challenges, so follow along as we cover all of the game's artifact codes, how they work, and where to enter them.

Where to Enter Artifact Codes in Risk of Rain 2

Risk of Rain 2 Artifact Codes Survivors can enter Risk of Rain 2 artifact codes in the Sky Meadow, which is always the fifth stage for each run. Find the terminal by descending into a massive hole in the floor near the level’s beginning. Note that some monsters may prevent you from proceeding. Run from the hostiles or defeat them to proceed. The terminal for the artifact codes is a 3x3 grid. Each node allows you to select a floating shape. Select the correct combination of shapes or compounds to activate the modifiers. Once you input your preferred code, interact with the laptop at the front of the 3x3 grid. Doing so should make a portal spawn at the teleporter in front. Next, enter the teleporter to initiate a boss fight with the Artifact Reliquary. Defeating the Artifact Reliquary requires players to gather four Artifact Keys by defeating monsters that spawn in the area. Once defeated, grab the artifact to activate the code’s effect.
