The Harvester's Scythe is a returning item in Risk of Rain 2.

The first Scythe a player obtains grants +5% critical strike chance. Stacking more Scythes will not increase critical strike chance further.

Upon landing a critical strike, the player heals a flat 8 (+4 per stack) health, multiplied by the proc coefficient of the attack.

Notes

  • The visuals for healing are always rounded up, but this does not reflect the actual healing gained.
  • With no other sources of critical strike chance, the Scythe provides an average of 0.48 healing per hit. With a single Lens-Maker's Glasses.png Lens-Maker's GlassesBgCommon.pngLens-Maker's Glasses.pngLens-Maker's Glasses

Lore

“I’m not going nowhere. What I do is important, and no plague is going to stop me from getting that done. City folk are all up in a tizzy over this and that, scared that ya’ll will pass without doing some crazy goals you set for yourself. 

But me, I’m not afraid of death. Suffering is just another part of life, and like labor, I can do it myself. To death, I say: I don’t need your damn help.”
