Red's Sacrifice

Changes the Artifact of Sacrifice to be much more balanced, especially in multiplayer.


In the base game, the Artifact of Sacrifice has a fixed chance of dropping an item based on monster type alone. This does not scale properly with the amount of players, since the game will then spawn bigger and stronger monsters, not proportionally more.

How it works

Internally in Risk of Rain 2, the spawning logic uses monster credits. This mod functions by actually recording how many of these credits are spent when a monster is spawned, and how many credits were being distributed at the time.

Based on these metrics, we can determine the relative value of a monster. From there, all we do is convert the value to a percentage to determine the item drop chance.


The mod can be configured though it's config file, me.RedMushie.RedsSacrifice.cfg. You can also configure it during gameplay using console commands. The defaults are very sensible though :-).

Console commands

rs_enabled [true|false]

Enables or disables the mod functionality.

rs_debug [true|false]

rs_global_mult [value]

Sets the global drop chance multiplier (as percentage). Default value is 100.

rs_shrine_multiplier [value]

Sets the Classic non-boss wave drop chance multiplier (as percentage). Default value is 100.

rs_classic_boss_mult [value]

Sets the Classic boss wave drop chance multiplier (as percentage). Default value is 0.

Sets the Simulacrum boss wave drop chance multiplier (as percentage). Default value is 100.
