Risk of Rain 2 is an absolute blast to play, and the risk/reward system makes it even more exciting. It’s also a great way to meet new people, as we’re all trying our best not to get killed in this addictive game!

Every character has their own strengths and weaknesses when it comes to fighting monsters or other players. In this tier list, I will rank each character from weakest (Tier 1) to strongest (Tier 5). Tier 1 characters are not recommended for competitive multiplayer games because they are too weak. They may be useful in single-player mode though!
