How to unlock the Robomando - Risk of Rain Returns Guide

The Robomando is the hidden character in Risk of Rain Returns. Where all the other characters clearly indicate in-game objectives that need to be completed to unlock them, the Robomando doesn't appear in any menu, and chances are you didn't even suspect it was there in the first place. Here's how to unlock the Robomando in Risk of Rain Returns.


To unlock the Robomando, you're going to have to do a whole host of things! You can do this quest with any character, but we recommend using one with a lot of mobility, like the Loader, the Huntress or the Mercenary.

First, you'll need to start a game in Crachin, the lowest difficulty mode. Your aim will be to find a Strange Battery and transport it from one game to another.

The quest begins on level 5, at the Temple of the Ancients. Before you get there, try to find as many Opoo Feathers as possible, as well as a few of Paul's Goat's Paws, as they will make your task much easier.

Once you reach level 5, you'll need to find a hidden Battery. It's in one of the vases in the background. The vase appears at the far right of the map, often behind a large wall. This is where having Feathers guarantees access. Once in front of the pot, you can open it like a chest to retrieve the Battery, which is an item that can be activated without any effect.

Once you have the Battery, complete level 5 and go on to the final level. Once again, you'll need to go to the far right of the map, under the ship's cockpit. To do this, you'll need an access card to open the door to the Cabins.

If you go furthest to the right of the cabins, you'll come to a chasm into which you'll have to plunge to reach a secret passage. There is a tunnel dug into the cliff. Because of the steepness of your fall, it's very difficult to reach it with a simple jump. That's why you'll need the feathers or mobility skills of your survivors to break the inertia and reach the secret passage.

At the bottom of the tunnel, you'll find golems dancing around a boombox. This cool little easter egg is hiding something! There's actually a secret passage inside the secret passage. If you continue to the left, you'll be able to pass through the wall and reach a new area where there's a black chest that's already been opened. Stand in front of the open chest and use the action button to drop the Battery into it.

From there, all you have to do is finish the game. You can either die or kill Providence. But the quest isn't over yet!

This time you'll have to start a second game, on either Stormy or Monsoon difficulty mode. Of course, we'd advise you to play in Stormy mode, because if you die, you'll have to restart the quest from the very beginning, including the game in Drizzle. Don't worry so much about your character's mobility this time, and play the one you're most comfortable with.

Time is of the essence in this game! Bear in mind that you'll have to finish level 3 before the 22nd minute. It's actually quite long, but don't waste too much time either.

So start this new game and go up to level 2, whether it's the Celestial Meadows or the Fungal Caverns. Somewhere on this level is the black chest that you filled in the previous game. It's not hidden, it's placed like any other chest in the level and you'll have to pay the same amount as a basic chest to open it. Inside is the Battery that you left inside. Pick it up and keep it until the end of the quest.

The next stage takes place on level 3. As we said earlier, you have to finish this zone before the 22nd minute of the game. By finish, we mean that the boss of the zone has been killed and the teleporter has finished loading. So wait until the timer reads 22:00 and activate the teleporter to reach level 4.

If you've done this correctly, and still have the Battery equipped, somewhere on level 4 there's a secret passage with a drone that doesn't require money to activate, but your Battery! The drone is normally clearly visible, in an isolated area, but it's the access to this area that's hidden.

Once you've reached the drone, place your Battery in it and the drone will reveal itself to be Robomando. It won't just take your Battery, though, as it will also steal all your items before killing you! You're bound to lose the game, but you'll have unlocked Robomando.
