Portal Codes

Risk of Rain 2 Portal Codes | How to Unlock All Artifacts

Risk of Rain 2 released for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Switch on August 11, and while this isn’t the end of development for the hectic, high-paced roguelike, we can probably start unlocking things without much worry. For example, one of the most important unlocks are the Portal codes. These combinations of shapes, when put into a specific console, send you to the Bulwark’s Ambry, letting you unlock artifacts. But, to get there, you’ll need to know the artifact codes. They’re all hidden and can be extremely annoying to find. Thankfully, we have you covered.

All Portal Codes in Risk of Rain 2

To use the codes, you must get under the final map of a standard run, Sky Meadow. Off to the side, you’ll see a platform. On that platform is a computer and a massive teleporter. To enter one of these codes, interact with the buttons in front of the teleporter until you get the following shapes. In the list below, you’ll find all of the Portal codes in Risk of Rain 2:

You don’t need to have seen the in-game hints to get the artifact. Therefore, you can input any of these Portal codes into the computer in front of the teleporter at any time!

As of the writing of this article, Hoopoo Games has not confirmed whether or not there will be more artifacts in the future. So, for now, these are all you need to unlock!
