Hopoo Games and Gearbox Publishing released Skills 2.0 Update for Risk of Rain 2 on Steam Early Access (Windows). The Loader returns from the original Risk of Rain with the addition of a new stage, a new boss, the ability to earn new skills, and customize Survivor loadouts.
The Loader fits the role of a bruiser that excels at grappling and up-close combat, including the following skills:
Passive: Scrap Barrier – The Loader is immune to fall damage. Striking enemies with the Loader’s gauntlets grants a temporary barrier.
Primary Fire: Knuckleboom – Swing at nearby enemies for 320% damage.
Secondary Fire: Grapple Fist – Fire your gauntlet forward, pulling you to the target.
Utility: Charged Gauntlet – Charge up a massive punch for 600%-2700% damage that sends you flying forward. Deals significantly more damage the faster you are moving.
Special: M551 Pylon – Throw a floating pylon that zaps up to 6 nearby enemies for 100% damage. Can be grappled.
New game features:
Skills 2.0 – Each Survivor has a new set of survivor-specific Challenges that, once completed, unlock new individual skills or skins for that respective Survivor. Mix and match skills and fine-tune a Survivor’s kit to perfection! More skills and skins will be added in future updates.
Siren’s Call – Dive into the mossy depths of Siren’s Call and challenge its unique boss.
New Items and Equipment – New dangerous additions made to the Survivors’ ever-growing library of tools of the trade.
