Difficulty affects how hard the game will be to play. There are two types of difficulties in Risk of Rain:

  1. Starting Difficulty
  2. Scaling Difficulty

Starting DifficultyEdit

The Starting Difficulty is the difficulty that the player can set at the beginning of any game. There are a few differences between each respective starting difficulty:

  • Different starting cash
  • Different starting health
  • The harder the difficulty, the quicker the in-game difficulty rises with time
  • Enemies do more damage on harder difficulties
  • More frequent boss spawns on harder difficulties
  • Chests/shops etc. cost more on harder difficulties
  • Teleporters take longer to activate on harder difficulties

There are three starting difficulties a player can choose from:

  • Drizzle Icon
    DRIZZLE
    - DRIZZLE -
    Reduces difficulty for players new to the game.
    Weeping and gnashing is replaced by laughter and tickles.

Scaling DifficultyEdit

The Scaling Difficulty is the difficulty that increases after the start of a game. A scaling difficulty simply means that as time increases, so does difficulty. Represented in a bar on the HUD, every minute increases the enemies’ power and spawn count, developing a great sense of urgency. [1]. There are currently ten named scaling difficulties, starting with "Very Easy" and ending with "HAHAHAHA":
