The Cautious Slug is a new item in Risk of Rain 2.

It increases the player's base health regeneration by 3hp/s (+3 hp/s after avoiding damage for 5 or more seconds. Attacking will not cancel the effect as with Red Whip. The regeneration bonus will be active until the player takes damage.


  • As is stated in the text, the heal is regarded as passive regeneration. It's still possible to achieve Naturopath with this equipment.
  • This item is unaffected by Corpsebloom.
  • In the Hidden Realms update, this item no longer gives a regen multiplier but instead a flat regen boost.
  • [4478858] The logbook currently claims this item provides 4 hp/s (+4 hp/s). This is not true.
