The Health gauge of Risk of Rain 2 is displayed in the bottom-left corner of the screen on the HUD. Taking Damage reduces your health. Lost health regenerates over time.
Regaining Health[edit | edit source]

Shield[edit | edit source]
Shield works similarly to Health. As characters suffer from damage, shield is emptied prior to health. Shield replenishes over 2 seconds after 7 seconds without taking damage. As a result characters must avoid damage for 9 consecutive seconds to fully regenerate their shield. Shield regeneration is treated as separate from healing and thus any modifiers to healing, or effects that activate from healing, will not take effect from regenerating shield.
