In order to get mods working you will need to set up your Proton prefix to properly load BepInEx:


The following programs should also be installed:


sudo pacman -S curl gawk jq p7zip sed


sudo dnf install curl gawk jq p7zip sed


sudo apt-get install curl gawk jq p7zip-full sed



Extract the zip and run sudo make install inside its directory.

First Setup

It is heavily recommended to run r2mod setup to create a new install.

Some empty folders will be placed in the BepInEx/plugins dir, do not remove them.

They are used to track updates for certain mods.

Custom Install Location

The default install directories for Steam/Flatpak should automatically be handled.

If you've installed Risk of Rain 2 to a different location, please export the environment variable

$R2MOD_INSTALL_DIR in your bash profile and point it to your install directory:

export R2MOD_INSTALL_DIR="$HOME/custom/dir/Risk of Rain 2"
