Risk of Rain 2 Update Patch Notes on September 1

The developers at Hopoo Games have released a new update for Risk of Rain 2. The game is no longer in Early Access, it has been live since the beginning of August.

The Risk of Rain Update is now available for download for PS4, PC, Switch and Xbox One. It is possible that the consoles receive the update a little later.


Risk of Rain Patch Notes

Gameplay Changes

  • **Captain*** Captain’s Supply Drop now presses the buttons on Abandoned Aqueduct
  • ** Equipment Drone*** Now recharges equipment much faster, approximately 5x as often. We don’t expect Equipment Drones to suddenly become super strong, but there may be a few cases where it is now worthwhile.
  • ** SPOILERS! Final Boss, Last Phase. SPOILERS!*** Developer Notes: The goal with these changes is to make the final phase of the fight more consistent, fix a few softlock scenarios, and to remove a few cheeses. The expectation is that with these changes, the final phase (and only the final phase) will be much easier. We want this to be a fun phase, not a frustrating conclusion
  • Remove “unique” scaling on health and damage. This has a significant reduction on the way his health and damage scales over time, especially later into the run. Expect him to have less than half of the current live build, depending on time.
  • Lunar Shard Attack* Projectile Cone: 20° ⇒ 0.5°
  • Developer Notes: The intent for this change is to reduce the cone that the attacks come out of, reducing the chance you randomly get hit by a stray shot.
  • Energy Ball Attack* Damage Coefficient: 1000% ⇒ 700%
  •  Knockback Force: 400 ⇒ 4000%
  • Projectile Radius: 3m ⇒ 2m
  • Now glows with a stronger effect to make it more visually noticeable, especially when swinging around corners
  • Item Steal* Add immunity while channeling.
  • Can no longer use Mired Urn and Crowbars. He will take them, but will be unable to use them. This is a mechanic we already have in place for a few key items (Razorwire, Tougher Times) that can cause softlocks or impossible scenarios.
  • Now steals items from minions, like Engineer Turrets. He won’t use the items he takes from minions.
  • Minions can now retrieve items for their owner.
  • Add visual effect to Tesla Coil being active
