Obtaining Rubbish is a unique process in Hades 2, as it cannot be found in the Underworld or on the surface during the early stages of the game. Instead, you must follow these steps:

Progress Through the Game

Rubbish will not be available immediately. First, you must progress in your descent into Tartarus, the deepest region of the Underworld, by completing multiple runs. After each death, you should visit the location to the left of the Fated List of Minor Prophecies in the Crossroads area.

Meet Eris

As you continue your journey, you will eventually encounter Eris, the personification of strife. Eris can be found littering in front of your eyes, leaving behind piles of Rubbish.

Collect Rubbish

Once Eris appears, you can pick up the Rubbish left behind on the ground. This Rubbish will be automatically added to your inventory. It is important to note that Eris may not always be present, so you should regularly check the designated location after each run.

By repeating this process over several runs, you can accumulate a significant amount of Rubbish in Hades 2.

While Rubbish may seem like an unimportant resource, as we told you above, it plays an important role in unlocking certain Incantations at the cauldron located in the Crossroads area of Hades 2.

Currently, Rubbish is required for one specific Incantation called "Summoning a Colony of Bats Incantation". To perform this Incantation, you need to gather the following ingredients:

  • Rubbish x3
  • Moss x3

Once the Incantation is successfully performed, you can interact with bat cages scattered throughout the City of Ephyra. These bat cages will provide you with a birds-eye view of the area. It will help and allow you to plan your route effectively and locate the most useful rooms in Hades 2. So, turns out Rubbish can be pretty useful too right?
