Increase jump height. Hold 'Interact' to slam down to the ground.
Increase jump height. Creates a 5m-100m radius kinetic explosion on hitting the ground, dealing 1000%-10000% base damage that scales up with fall distance. Recharges in 10 (-50% per stack) seconds.

The H3AD-5T v2 is an item in Risk of Rain 2.

As the holder falls, they can "lock on" to the nearest enemy by holding the "interact" key (default "E" on keyboard). This causes them to fall much faster than normal, and when they hit the ground, they create an explosion whose damage and size scale with the distance they fell. This explosion takes 10 seconds (-50% per stack) to recharge.

While the explosive ability is ready, the H3AD-5T v2 also increases the player's jump height.

Additionally, the H3AD-5T v2 negates all fall damage taken, regardless of whether the explosive ability is ready or not.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • This item is highly effective with Artificer.png Artificer's Ion Surge.png Ion Surge, as she can gain as much height as desired before slamming down for incredible damage.
    • Loader.png Loader can also make good use of it, but she may require overhead geometry to grapple onto to gain more height.
  • Equipping a Milky Chrysalis.pngMilky ChrysalisBgEquipment.pngMilky Chrysalis.png60sGain temporary flight.
    Sprout wings and fly for 15 seconds. Gain +20% movement speed for the duration.

    Turn into a draconic fireball for 5 seconds. Deal 500% damage on impact. Detonates at the end for 800% damage.
    gives the player powerful vertical mobility options to maximize fall distance.

Lore[edit | edit source]

"Denizens of lower-gravity planets like Mercury historically have had trouble adjusting to life on other planets. Mercurians, with their lower bone density (left) would typically shatter their femur within a week on heavier planets. Members of asteroid-rigged flotillas and colony ships have similar issues when arriving home from space.

The invention of Kinetic Dispersion Rings (above) help alleviate the stress of heavier-than-normal gravity by converting kinetic energy into heat, sound, and light. Settlers from Mercury could finally leave their home planet in safety."
