Risk of Rain 2: Survivors of the Void PC Patch v1.2.4 (Build ID #8796679)


Changes with the ‘🌧’ icon in front of them are changes or additions suggested by the community. As always, if you want to stay up to date on the game or give us feedback feel free to join the discord at https://discord.gg/riskofrain2



The goal of this patch is to address lower-level bugs, while also taking a look at some content changes and more long-standing bugs that have existed in RoR2. In addition to that, you can now sign up for our mailing list in game to stay updated on our latest announcements!


(Steam version only)

Read up!



• General
  • Void Fields
  • 🌧 Interactables now spawn in the stage
  • Developer Notes: With SotV, we wanted to make the Void Fields a more compelling choice by increasing the value of the reward and introducing a cost (time). However, we felt that the risk outweighed the reward, so we’ve added interactables to the stage, much like the interactables in Simulacrum stages.
[/i]

  • Artificer
  • 🌧 Flame Bolt damage: 220% ⇒ 280%
  • Plasma Bolt damage: 220% ⇒ 280%
  • Developer Notes: As we iterated on the way that burns work during development of SotV, we unintentionally reduced the damage of Artificer’s Flame Bolt indirectly by reducing the burn damage. To compensate, we’re buffing the initial damage of Flame Bolt so that the overall damage returns to pre-SotV levels. Plasma Bolt is receiving the same buff to ensure it doesn’t fall behind.
  • [/i]

  • Captain
  • 🌧 Lysate Cell now increases the stocks of Captain’s first beacon
  • Captain is now limited to 2 deployed beacons at a time
  • Developer Notes: It was kind of lame that Lysate Cell did absolutely nothing for Captain, but it was hard to find a solution that wasn’t completely game-breaking. Limiting the beacons to 2 at a time keeps the power of the item under control (as well as fixes some exploits in Simulacrum multiplayer).
  • [/i]

  • Newly Hatched Zoea
  • 🌧 Fresh new skins to help differentiate allies from enemies

  • Defense Nucleus
  • Alpha Construct Ally Damage Bonus: +0% ⇒+300%
  • Alpha Construct Ally Health Bonus: +0% ⇒ +300%
  • Developer Notes: During development, we experimented with what conditions would trigger this item. Initially, this item was exceptionally strong due to how frequently it triggered. It proved to be too strong, so we changed the trigger, but we forgot to compensate by buffing the spawned Alpha Construct as we had intended.
  • [/i]

  • Squid Polyp
  • Squid Turret Ally Base Damage: 20 ⇒ 4
  • Squid Turret Ally Primary Skill Damage Coefficient: 1 ⇒ 5
  • Squid Turret Allies Primary Skill Proc Coefficient: 1 ⇒ 0.1
  • Squid Turret Allies Primary Skill Knockback Force: 0 ⇒ 2000
  • Squid Turret Allies can now be stunned by “stunning” skills
  • Squid Turret Allies can now be frozen
  • Developer Notes: An important part of the balance of the Void Cradles is the risk from the Void Infestors it spawns, so we wanted to lower the risk with Squid Polyp without completely removing it. These changes to Squid Polyp are overall a slight buff in the hands of the player (the knockback especially defends the turrets against infestation), but they mainly reduce the damage from Collapse when Voidtouched. And believe it or not, they’re actually pretty good at killing the Void Infestors.

  • Blind Vermin
  • 🌧 Director Credits for default variant: 20 ⇒ 14
  • 🌧 Director Credits for snowy variant: 8 ⇒ 14
  • Developer Notes: The difference in Director Credits between the variants of Blind Vermin was unintentional, so we just split the difference.
  • [/i]

    • 🌧 Fixed Captain sometimes not having stocks of his beacons on the first stage



    This patch introduces a bug whereby playing a singleplayer game after a multiplayer game will cause the difficulty and prices to remain at multiplayer levels. As a temporary fix simply restart the game - we will have a permanent solution in place for the next patch!

    Enjoy the increased difficulty while you can, challenge hunters!
