Risk of Rain Returns Empty Green Chest Bug: Is there any fix yet
Hopoo Games was quick enough to acknowledge this issue and even fixed it in the latest patch. However, if you are still unable to get rid of this bug, follow the workarounds mentioned below.
Before anything, use the restart method. Essentially, you need to restart the game, and if that doesn’t work, restart the PC or console itself. Restarting is a common method of dealing with bugs such as these, so try this, and if the issue persists, head over to another workaround.
Verify files –
Unfortunately, Switch players will have to sit this one out since there’s no way to validate files on Switch. As for PC players, what you need to do is open Steam and click on Library. Next, find Risk of Rain Returns and right-click on it. Now, just select Properties > Installed Files > Verify integrity of game files. Once the process is over, restart your PC and then launch the game.
Get the latest patch –
As promised, the latest patch of Risk of Rain Returns did address this issue and fix this bug. So, if you haven’t downloaded this patch, do so, and after it’s installed, start RoRR and see if the issue persists. If yes, then check out the next workaround.
