Welcome! Here are all the up to date lunar items, with info on how to unlock them, and how to get lunar coins.

To see all items, you can go to Risk of Rain 2 Items and if you would like item recommendations for every character see Risk of Rain 2 Tier Lists.

How to get lunar coins

There's a small chance every time a monster dies that it drops a lunar coin. You'll have to pick them up off the ground, so don't miss them!

If you want to farm lunar coins quickly, you earn 5 lunar coins every time you sacrifice yourself to the Obelisk in the Hidden Ream A Moment, Fractured. You can do this repeatedly for a quick guaranteed way to earn lunar coins. This is the same way you unlock Mercenary, so you can check out our unlock guide to learn how to do this: How To Unlock Every Character In Risk of Rain 2.

If you just want to cheat, you can see our Risk of Rain 2 Cheats post to learn how to get infinite Lunar Coins.

Brittle Crown

Brittle Crown Icon

Item Effects

30% chance on hit to gain 3 (+3 per stack) gold. Lose gold equal to 100%(+100% per stack) of amount you are hit for OR lose % gold equal to 100%(+100 per stack) maximum health % you lost. Chooses the greater of the two.

Does this work with Engineer Turrets?

Presently this doesn't work well. Turrets can trigger effects just like Engineer can, but it doesn't give the effect to the Engineer, it gives them to the Turret. So items like Leeching Seed heal the Turret, not the Engineer. This makes Brittle Crown useless.
