Classic Items


Use of a mod manager is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.

Seriously, use a mod manager.

If the versions of ClassicItems or TILER2 (or possibly any other mods) are different between your game and other players' in multiplayer, things WILL break. If TILER2 is causing kicks for "unspecified reason", it's likely due to a mod version mismatch. Ensure that all players in a server, including the host and/or dedicated server, are using the same mod versions before reporting a bug.

While reporting a bug, make sure to post a console log (path/to/RoR2/BepInEx/LogOutput.log) from a run of the game where the bug happened; this often provides important information about why the bug is happening. If the bug is multiplayer-only, please try to include logs from both server and client.


Adds some items from Risk of Rain 1 which RoR2 thought it was too good for.

For nostalgic purposes only. Here Be Dragons who hoard balance issues, because the numbers are closer to RoR1's than 2's... and, y'know, Brooch+Clover. Will absolutely lead to silly, broken runs, unless you feel like changing the config up -- most aspects of each item are configurable!

  • Fire Shield: "Retaliate on taking heavy damage."

  • Safeguard Lantern: "Drop a lantern that fears and damages enemies for 10 seconds."

Other Features

  • Every item added by Classic Items can be individually disabled in the mod's config file.
  • More config options for various aspects of item effects (how much regen a Mysterious Vial provides, which equipments Beating Embryo affects...).
  • Most config options can be changed mid-run by using TILER2's AIC console commands.
  • Descriptions in the logbook match config values.


  • Item models are a quick first pass -- improvements may be made.
    • Item displays may also happen at some point.
  • Stats are set close to RoR1's whenever possible. May eventually set up a config preset which balances items a little more carefully with respect to RoR2's existing content.
  • Beating Embryo has no effect on Lunar equipments (other than those added by mods). This is a design decision, but disabled-by-default effects are planned.
  • As of SotV, new characters, and some new skills for old characters, are missing Ancient Scepter skills.
  • See the GitHub repo for more!

Modder Resources

ClassicItems exposes some members as public for use in compatibility patches in other mods, including:

  • Tools to implement Beating Embryo and Ancient Scepter behavior for other mods' equipment items and characters

For details and instructions on applying these, see:


The 5 latest updates are listed below. For a full changelog, see: (🌧︎: Involves an accepted GitHub Pull Request from the community. Thanks for your help!)


  • 🌧︎ Ported lore entries from RoR1 for ALL items/equipments.
  • Made Golden Gun more resilient w.r.t. mod compatibility, but less responsive.
    • Now applies damage buff to CharacterBody stat instead of directly to damage dealt; only does so when the display buff count changes for performance reasons, so there's a small amount of granularity.
  • Possible fix for Life Savings ShareSuite compat which may cause different issues in multiplayer.
  • Removed debug code, including item spawning and an unfinished item that was only present in debug builds. Should have no user-facing effect.


    • The deprecated signature for Scepter.RegisterScepterSkill that takes an int VariantIndex has been removed due to instability. You must now provide a target SkillDef instead.
  • Fixed Beating Embryo partial proc chance being 1/100 the intended amount while multiproc is enabled.


  • Added a new override to Ancient Scepter mod registration method that takes a target SkillDef instead of a variant index.
    • This is now the preferred way to target skills for replacement. Targeting by VariantIndex is deprecated and may be removed in the future if a suitable replacement for internal use on vanilla skills is found.
  • Scepter skill replacer for Commando grenade now only intercepts the ThrowGrenade entity state for its behavior (and not any other entity state inheriting from it).


  • Fixed Hit List internal tally item being tier 1 instead of tierless.
  • Updated TILER2 dependency to 7.0.1.


  • Cross-mod support for the new version of Beating Embryo has been finalized! Check for instructions for developers.
  • Pillaged Gold amount per hit is now configurable.
  • Reworked Life Savings internal mechanics to hopefully attrite some very evasive bugs out of existence.
  • Implemented Risk Of Options support on ALL items/equipments, via new AutoConfig attributes in TILER2 7.
  • Removed some deprecated ItemStats and BetterUI support.
  • Updated for latest Risk of Rain 2 version.
  • Updated TILER2 dependency to 7.0.0.
