Are you also looking for items that don’t just sound cool but also provide insane buffs in Risk of Rain Returns? We recently covered a fantastic artifact like that, which goes by the name Umbrella. It will make you invincible when it rains while applying other status effects to enemies. But even that may start to bore you after a while. Just being immortal doesn’t make it any more enjoyable. But what if you could spawn only one kind of enemy on the entire map? In fact, Risk of Rain Returns has an artifact that offers this effect, and it’s called the Artifact of Kin. So, if you are wondering how to unlock it, consider reading this guide for more details on the same.
This specific artifact can not only make your entire run smoother but also help you learn the attack patterns of different enemies. When only one kind of enemy spawns, you can freely experiment with your combos and learn about their weaknesses while also completing the run. It is again a cheating skill that can make or break the game. That being said, here’s everything you need to know about unlocking the Artifact of Kin in RoRR.
Risk of Rain Returns (RoRR): How To Unlock the Artifact of Kin
Most artifacts are hidden behind a puzzle or some other level. To unlock the umbrella artifact, you had to complete a trial. However, to unlock the Kin artifact, you don’t have to complete a trial. But you will have to solve a puzzle.
The Dried Lake Map
The Artifact of Kin can be found on the Dried Lake map. It has various terrains, and one of these terrains holds this artifact locked behind a click-and-shoot puzzle. Upon entering the map, just run towards the lower right part. Then look for a wall that looks suspicious, because there will be a teleporter kind of thing on the other side of it. Use your gun to break the blockage and enter the chamber. As a side note, there will be a fish skeleton near the destructible wall.
Once you access the area, there will be a puzzle that you need to solve. There is one switch on the right side and two more on the top floor. You have to shoot all of them once within a few seconds to unlock the artifact. Make sure that you do it as fast as you can. The switch resets within a few seconds, so if you aren’t quick enough, then it will take multiple attempts.
Get the Artifact of Kin
After successfully solving the puzzle, a beep sound will echo, and the artifact of Kin will spawn on the bottom floor. Climb down with the rope and get the Artifact of Kin. Now use this when you enter the new map. But remember that on a good day, you may be lucky enough to fill the map with easy-to-defeat enemies. But what if it spawns the most annoying ones? Well, that’s the risk you must take.
