There’s a loophole in the game by using these players are unlocking the characters without even playing the game. The developers didn’t have patched this glitch/loophole in ROR 2.

To unlock the character, first of all make sure game is not running then,

  • Go to C:/Program Files(x86)/userdata/Steam there you’ll find a folder user ID
  • Now in the User ID folder, you’ll see another folder with labeled with numbers like 632360, open this folder
  • In 632360, now go to the Remote folder and User Profiles folder
  • There you’ll see an XML file, copy this file to somewhere else for backup purpose.
  • Now open the XML file found in the User Profiles folder in any IDE or Notepad.
  • Scroll to the bottom, you’ll see a bunch of codes and some records of your profile that shows which character you’ve unlocked in the game.
  • From this, you’ll get an idea of what you have to do.

Now copy one of the lines of code for the character that you want to unlock. Here Toolbot refers to MUL-T and Mage refers to Artificer incase you’re looking for these two names.

<unlock>Characters.Treebot</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Croco</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Huntress</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Engineer</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Mercenary</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Mage</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Toolbot</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Loader</unlock>
<unlock>Characters.Captain</unlock>

Make sure you entered the above line of the code for unlocking a character in between <stat name> and </stats> tags, other this glitch won’t work.

Lastly, save the file and start the game, Hopefully, you’ll see the newly unlocked characters along with the previous ones in the game.
