How to unlock Acrid - Risk of Rain Returns Guide
Acrid is a unique character in Risk of Rain Returns. He uses very few of his basic attacks and prefers to run away from fights. He fights by poisoning his opponents and running away until the poison eliminates them. Here's how to unlock Acrid in Risk of Rain Returns.
To unlock Acrid, you need to free him and kill him in the Buried Tombsthe aquatic variant of level 3. The problem is that it's not present in all the variants of the level. If it is available, you'll find a grey container at the top right of the zone, on the surface. Stand in front of it and open it to free Acrid.
You'll then have to kill Acrid. He's not very fast, but he has a lot of health points and can hurt you very badly. Fortunately, he can't poison you. On the other hand, his attacks will stun you for a while, making you particularly vulnerable if other enemies are present. That's why we recommend that you only free and fight Acrid once you've charged the teleporter and killed the boss.
As with all the challenges, we advise you to switch to Drizzle mode if you want to make life easier.
