HAN-D

'HAN-D' unlock: Edit

"Find the robot janitor."

On the final level 'Risk of Rain', in the "Cargo 2" area of the map where there are many multicolored boxes stacked upon each other, there is a grey door that you can activate (it is the second area from the top, leftmost ).

Miner

'Miner' unlock:Edit

"Clear a path for the survivor."

In the 4th level 'Magma Barracks', there is sometimes a tunnel in the bottom-right corner of the entire level. Walk through the tunnel and you will find a small room with a pod in the top right corner. You do not have to get to the pod, just defeat the boss blocking the way (chance to spawn). Remember, the tunnel is not always there -- it should be visible from the platforms above the lava. This achievement can be obtained in - DRIZZLE -

 or higher.

Note: Upon activating the teleporter, enemies stop spawning, which also prevents the boss from spawning. It is recommended to check for the tunnel prior to activating the teleporter if you wish to unlock the miner. Also, if you get to Magma Barracks level and there is no tunnel, you don't have to start over — the tunnel may appear when you re-visit the level.

*Side Note: In multiplayer, the only person who can see the boss blocking the way and obtain the Miner is the server host. Confirmed: Can be gained with kin artifact activated.



Sniper

'Sniper' unlock:Edit

Interacting with this cage will free Acrid who will then attack you. After defeating him, Acrid is unlocked as a playable character. This achievement can be obtained in  - DRIZZLE -

Loader

'Loader' unlock:Edit

"Obtain 30 items in one playthrough."

Having multiples of one item does not count, meaning all 30 must be unique. This makes the artifact Command very useful, as you can easily choose different items with each drop. Looping is also recommended, as getting all thirty items required is difficult in single pass runs.



CHEF

'CHEF' unlock:Edit

"Obtain Meat Nugget, Bustling Fungus, Sprouting Egg, Bitter Root and Foreign Fruit in one run."

The Command artifact makes this unlock extremely easy, as you can simply chose all the required items.
