When you die in multiplayer in Spelunky 2, you become a ghost. This guide on How To Revive Friends In Spelunky 2 will tell you what you need to do in order to bring your ghostly friends back to life so they can help you clear through the level. Although, the ghost having 2 unique attacks doesn’t make it a terrible idea to uh… sacrifice a friend if needed.
When you die and become a ghost, not all is lost. The ghost has two main abilities it can use. It’s basic attack, using Square, can push or blow enemies and items off of ledges – handing for getting rid of tricky enemies via spike pits. The secondary attack, used by holding Square, allows you to charge a chilling breath that freezes enemies it hits. Your friends can then pass through them or even destroy them with a well placed bomb or jump.
How To Revive Friends In Spelunky 2
You will not revive as you complete a level (although make sure you grab the dog for health bonuses). Instead, you need to explore further and find a specific object, a Coffin. You can see it in the picture above. Once you have found the coffin, you simply need to reach it and you’re almost done.
The player that is alive needs to attack the Coffin. This will open the Coffin, destroying it so to speak. Your friendly ghosts will then automatically revive at the coffin. They don’t need to be close to it or anything, simply breaking the coffin is enough to revive your dead allies. And that’s how you revive in Spelunky 2.
