Hello guys, today i decided to make the new guide about Huntress, this time hopefully better than my previous guide, sorry for my English because it’s my 2nd language.

 
 

About Huntress

 
First of all, i’m really happy what i had in mind this time! Thank you for the comment from my old guide (i promise this time i’ll edit it again if there’s something wrong, please do tell me) 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Alright here is short summary about Huntress 
1. Huntress HP is abit low which is fatal on early game (sadly), especially when you doing it solo. You have to dodge every possible attack incoming at you. 
 
2. Huntress’s Primary is very awesome, you don’t have to point it directly to enemy, just reach area to attack and it’ll be auto-target the enemy which is unique. (same goes to Secondary). 
 
 

Huntress Skills (Comparison)

 
Next, i’ll talk about Huntress’s skills, this is based on my own opinon, i did test it with different type of skills and now i’ll tell you guys about it. 
It might be different than you guys think that’s because everyone’s gameplay is different.

Primary : Strafe / Flurry? 
Answer : First of all, Flurry actually weaker than Strafe “WITHOUT” critical, but due it’s 6×100% damage when you doing crit, i think that Flurry is still better to pick as your primary. 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Secondary : Laser Glaive 
Your secondary for Huntress is unreplacable. Short thing what it do : It can bounce & every bounce you do, it’ll become more stronger.

Utility : Blink / Phase Blink? 
Answer : 
(1) For me, i’ll go for Blink, why : you can teleport medium distance (it can be up, down or whatever you like) also you can dodge fall damage with this. 
(2) Phase blink has 3 charges, teleport short distance but only horizontally unlike Blink that can go upwards/backwards. If you’re like doing short teleport enjoyers, thennn you can go Phase Blink. 
 
Other things to consider : 
Even the Blink has slow cooldown, with 2 alien head it’s already become 5-4s, combine it with Hardlight it’s already faster, so in conclusion it’s still up to you guys which Utility you want to use. + with blink you can teleport faster to dodge something fatal incoming.

Special : Arrow Rain / Ballista? 
Answer : Alright guys, both of them are good.. but personally i’ll go for Ballista. 
(1) Arrow Rain : you teleport to sky, then you target which area you wanna shoot, arrow rain will hit enemy 19 times and slowing them (but in that “area” only). 
(2) Ballista : you teleport but backwards, then you can shoot 3 times (you can target it yourself and shoot, it dealt 3×900% damage). 
 
Other things to consider : 
with Ballista, you can target the enemy whatever you like, so you can shoot the annoying one first that far away / like wisp that spawn alot in same time. For Arrow rain, it is good but i kinda hate when the enemy is running away from the zone which is ANNOYING ._. 
 
 

Early Items

 

Common Items

 
 
First of all, Survivabilityis a MUST, i learnt this mistake so many times and i regret it, i’ll recommend this in my experience using Huntress : 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Cautious Slug, Medkit & Tougher Times 
Three of these are your main items to survive, Invest on 1-2 Cautious Slug, 1-2 Medkit, 1-2 Tougher Times. When you get damage, you’ll heal from Medkit first, then out of combat healed by Cautious Slug, and if lucky it’ll be blocked!

Lens-Maker’s Glasses & Armor-Piercing Rounds 
Invest on 1-2 Lens-Maker’s Glasses (you dont need alot at first, you have to survive first in order to be stronger later), and other invest on 1x Armor-Piercing Rounds / not is up to you. 
 
Other Things to Consider (depending on situation) :

Paul’s Goat Hoof, Gasoline & Bison steak 
Incase you need more speed, you can invest on Paul’s Goat Hoof (1x) is enough at early, and 1x Gasoline to consider if you want the enemy near it set into fire when you kill an enemy, 1 is enough for Gasoline. If you have spare common, you can get Bison steak (your max hp+25/stack). 
 

Uncommon Items

Harvester’s Scythe & Infusion 
It might be… sound pretty silly to take Harvester coz it only works when you crit to enemy, but consider that if your primary is Flurry then at least it has chance to happen., So invest 1-2 Harvester and 1-2x infusion which increase your MAX HP up to 100/stack which is good at early for boosting your Max HP more to survive.

Ukulele and Kjaro’s Band 
Ukulele has chance to zzztt to other enemy which is good to clear enemy in AOE MODE! (1 is enough) & Kjaro’s Band to blast your enemy with bigger damage (invest 1 is enough) 
 
Other Things to Consider (depending on situation) :

Predatory Instincts, Red Whip & Hopoo Feather 
1. Predatory Instinct (if you have spare green), consider you want to move faster out of combat then Red whip can be your choice (1x is enough). Need more jump? then i’d recommend you Hopoo feather (1x), you dont need this alot on early anyway. 
 

Equipment

Royal Capacitor, Ocular HUD & Super Massive Leech 
Personally i’d go for Royal Capacitor (haha Zeus goes bRRRttzzt), but if you’re not sure that you can survive for long then Super Massive Leech will be your friend when the situation goes tough. If you have Harvester’s Scythe, then you can consider to take Ocular HUD for guaranteed critical. 
 

Unique Items

Shatterspleen & Titanic Knurl 
Personally i’ll go for Shatterspleen first, then next Yellow item i’ll go for Titanic Knurl. Why tho? well in my opinion, yellow actually hard to get coz its kinda rng (especially when solo it’ll only give 1 green/yellow except you’re using Shrine of Mountain. Shatterspleen can help you alot when your critical is reached guaranteed, it can bleed enemy then explode when they died. Honestly? common like Medkit and Cautious Slug can help you already on regenerating your HP, and mostly we gonna run away when things get too tough to handle. 
 

Legendary item

Brilliant Behemoth 
Yes, get this in your first red (if you got lucky), trust me OwO# 
 
 

Mid Game Items

 
Since it’ll getting more dangerous on every difficulity (especially when elite monster out, well even it appear on first area lmao), then next step item will be :

Tougher times, Lens-maker’s Glasses, Backup magazine & Armor-Piercing Rounds 
Alright, now slowly make your Lens-Maker’s glassesstack up to 9 (+5% from Predatory Instinct & +5% from Harvester’s Scythe (Thank you for comment on my previous Guide). While slowly stacking your glasses, you can now consider to add more Tougher times for +% blocking chance (1-5x for higher survive chance). 2-3 Armor Piercing is fine for boss later, and Backup Magazine(1-2) is up to you for this one.

Cautious Slug, Medkit, Crowbar, Soldier’s Syringe & Paul’s Goat Hoof 
If you still have alot of problem on recovering your HP, then add more Medkit is fine, Cautious slug (3/4x) is already fine too. Invest on Crowbar IF you have kinda trouble to one shoot enemy with your special (like ballista) It’s actually pretty helpfull. If you want to ASPD faster, then Soldier’s Syringe is fine (1-3x) if can, at last you can hit the enemy faster and kill it while also has chance to recover your hp. If you want more speed, consider invest more on Paul’s Goat Hoof, actually if you have Red whip, it’s already kinda fast especially you also have Blink/phase blink to move even more faster. 
 

Uncommon Items :

Preadory Instinct, AtG Missile MK.1 & Harvester’s Scythe 
Please spare 1 green for Predatory Instinct!! onegaiiii!, 1-2x Missile is fine (add alot more if you got 57 Leaf Clover, if not yet then don’t). Be more survive, go ahead and take Harvester’s Scytheagain for more life regen when you critical to enemy coz you need every life regen you can get on surviving)

Infusion, Red Whip & Old Guillotine 
Consider if you need to cap more your HP, then Infusion is alright-ish. If your speed is fine but need more then Red whip is also good choice (but note that it only work when you dont do any kind of combat). Consider investing on Old Guilotine to kill Elite monster directly when it reach the bar needed for them to Insta-kill. 
 

Equipment

Royal Capacitor & Super Massive Leech 
Actually you can just focus at Royal Capacitor much better, if you still have trouble on healing yourself on tough situation then Super Massive Leech is still Ok-ish. 
 

Unique Items

Shatterspleen & Titanic Knurl 
Still go with Shatterspleen (if you dont get any yet), if already you can invest it on Titanic Knurl 
 
Other things to consider (Depending on the Situation) : 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Risk of Rain 2 - Guide : Huntress Solo Long Run 
 
Molten Perforator & Charged Perforator 
Both of them has 10% chance to launch 3 magma balls / Lightning strike to enemy, consider this if you have 57 Leaf Clover so it can trigger it more often than usual. 
 

Legendary item

Brilliant Behemoth & Shattering Justice 
If you dont get red yet, then go Brilliant Behemoth, if already go for Shattering Justice for reducing their armor bois! 
 
 

Late till Last Game Items (Part 1) :

 

Because it’ll be long, i’ll separate it to Part 1 and Part 2 xD :

 
Alright, hopefully you already got what you need before you actually hit harder mobs and surviving for more rounds. 
 

Common Items :

Lens-Maker’s Glasses, Medkit, Cautious Slug & Gasoline 
Hopefully your glasses stacked already to (9x), Medkit (5-6x), Cautious Slug (5x), Gasoline (1x). Actually at this i think you already can heal regen more faster with 100% critical combining with Harvester’s Scythe. You can add more Medkit again if something bad really happen, if not then don’t really bother with this.

Paul’s Goat Hoof, Armor-Piercing Rounds, Tougher Times, Soldier’s Syringe, Crowbar, Backup Magazine, Sticky Bomb, Personal Shield Generator and Focus Crystal 
(1) If you want speed like sonic then Invest more on Paul’s Goat Hoof 
(2) Want kill every boss faster? then Armor-Piercing Rounds will be your best friend 
(3) Block chance+% more? invest more on Tougher times! it has chance to block the green trap (which is soo anooying asf) 
(4) Want ASPD speed like Wind? then invest on Soldiers Syringe 
(5) Crowbar is a yes item, sometimes i combine it with Old Guilitione it can actually one shoot Elite Monster to die with Ballista which is epic. 
(6) Backup Magazine (more secondary ammo capacity), well .. why not? 
(7) Sticky bomb, when you attack it has chance to put bomb on the enemy then explode (sadly the only stack on this is the “chance’ to land, not the damage) 
(8) You might consider adding more shield on your HP (go for Personal Shield Generator) 
(9) Focus Crystal, it actually silly asf for me to recommend this to “RANGED CHARACTERS?” What REALLY? actually i found this interesting combine together to kill enemy more faster when you get close on Focus Crystal’s Area, which is amazing you can stack it whatever you like and you’ll deal bonus damage when it reaches the area. Is it dumb idea? no no i don’t think so, actually it is…? i want you guys to test it also, i found this interesting and use it on any ranged chara that i can use.

Preadatory Instinct, Ukulele, Old Guilotine, Kjaro’s Band, Will-O’-the-wisp 
(1) You only need 1 for Predatory Instinct (i still prefer for you to invest on Soldier’s Syringe much better so your ASPD will be that permanent instead you have to hit critical first to trigger the ASPD) 
(2) You only need 1 Ukulele 
(3) Old Guilotine (10x is Enough) Hopefully you can get it so you don’t have to bother with this again, i already test it with 11-15x/+ it didnt have any effect (iirc) so 10x is already proven enough. 
(4) Kjaro’s Band (1x), you only need 1 
(5) Will-O’-the-wisp (0x) hopefully you got Shatterspleen before this (i dont recommend to take this item at all even you don’t get your shatterspleen yet).

(1) Hopoo feather (more JUMP MORE HAPPYYYYYYYYYYY, REEEEEEEEEEEE) 
(2) Red Whip, actually.. you dont really need THAT much if you already invest alot on Paul Goat Hoof, its already overpowering your speed. BUT, if you’re Speed Enjoyers gang then take this 
(3) AtG Missile Mk.1, take this alot with you when you got 57 Leaf Clover (i recommend to take 57 Leaf Clover first, but if you want to invest it first then.. go ahead). Do this when you really on End-grinding or something. 
(4) Harvester’s Scythe, didnt hurt to +HP regen more every critical 
(5) nfusion, yes invest this more is fine, your HP cap is important. 
(6) Fuel Cell, you can take this to Stack alot of your Equipment, in my opinion.. this is kinda useless to get it if you don’t take lunar item called “Gesture of the Downed”. Personally i dont wanna invest Fuel Cell if you dont get that lunar item coz the cooldown on equip already long enough just for 1 burst damage.

OMG you should have 2-3 Red already right right right?… welp, as usual for first you go for Brilliant Behemoth then Shattering Justice, after that is up to you. 
(1) Dio’s Best Friend, consider this red item on ur 5-6th item to take 
(2) Ceremonial Dagger, after Shattering justice is fine 
(3) 57 Leaf Clover, after Shattering Justice, so you can trigger more your AtG Missile & other else that has lower chance to proc 
(4) Unstable Tesla Coil, can consider it last item to get. 
(5) Hardlight Afterburner, yes yesyeyseysyesyes after 57 Leaf clover also can, it’ll add your utility +2/stack which is PRITTI GOOD BOIS. 
(6) Aegis & Rejuvenation Rack, make sure to get them both after 1 another, when your HP is full, Aegis will trigger you Temporary barrier, combine it with Reju and you’ll get alot of boost when you hit an enemy (which is very good combo). 
(7) Alien Head, reduce all your cooldown by 25%/stack, YES THIS IS GOD ITEM OMG. 
(8) Sentinel Meat Hook, consider it last item to get also. 
 
 

Closing! (Thank you so much!)

 
This is my 2nd time making guide for Risk of Rain 2, welp kinda say its kind of “Revision” from my old guide which is very stupid asf (i’m very sorry). The one that give me idea received my best respect coz it help me also to understand game more better. 
 
Please review it, rateup and tell me which is wrong so i can correct it in better way! <3 Again, thank you very much for visiting my guide (im so happy).
