How to Unlock The Captain in Risk of Rain 2

To unlock the Captain, players will have to complete the Moon world, which is added in the first release of the game. They will have to defeat Mithrix, the boss, to complete the world and unlock the Captain.

Find Mithrix on The Moon

To reach the Moon, all you need to do is complete the fifth realm, Sky Meadow. After completing the realm, you will find a Primordial Teleporter which will trigger a boss fight. Defeat the boss and you will be teleported to the Moon. Once in the moon, cross the bridge in front of you and you will reach some blue jump pads that will take you to Mithrix.

Defeat The Boss

The fight against Mithrix is divided into four phases. Some of the basic attacks to look out for in the first phase are hammer strikes, consecutive hits, and the one where Mithrix jumps in the air and stomp the floor with a hammer. Try to stay away from the boss for as long as possible and jump whenever Mithrix lands a stomp to avoid any damage.

Mithrix will disappear in the second phase and leave only a handful of enemies behind. Kill them to complete phase 2.

In the next phase, Mithrix will be back again. This time the boss will be with some additional enemies. Most of the attacks in phase 3 will have increased area damage. Hence, you should try to be in the air for as long as possible.

In the final stage, Mithrix will be weakened and alone. He will take all your weapons and items. As the fight progresses and you give damage to Mithrix, all your items will gradually come back to you. Collect all your items back and defeat Mithrix.
