The Huntress is one of the playable characters in Risk of Rain 2.
How to Unlock
The Huntress is unlocked upon completing the Challenge "Warrior" (Reach and complete the 3rd Teleporter event without dying.) Note that you can't get the achievement if you enter a blue portal at the end of stage 3.
Fire a seeking arrow for 150% damage. Can be used while sprinting.
0.8 each bounce
Throw a seeking glaive that bounces up to 6 times for 250% damage. Damage increases by 10% per bounce.
Can travel through terrain
Disappear and teleport forward.
Disappear and teleport a short distance. Can store up to 3 charges. Can be used while sprinting.
You can only sprint forward and forward/to the side, which might seem to limit the use of Strafe, but you can still attack enemies behind you while sprinting away if you quickly flick your camera behind you while using Strafe.
Phase Blink travels in any horizontal direction with an exceptionally short cooldown making it ideal for maintaining as much uptime on Strafe as possible.
Phase Blink teleportation distance appears to be based on your speed (faster speed - greater teleportation distance).
Laser Glaive stalls your downward movement in the air and can be used to increase horizontal distance when jumping, or to avoid falling damage.
Laser Glaive can travel through terrain.
Laser Glaive, Blink and Arrow Rain can all be used to avoid falling damage, though Laser Glaive needs a target to be used at all. Be careful as you are vulnerable while hovering.
Arrow Rain resets horizontal momentum, so use it first in jumping combos so you can Blink to your target platform.
You can Blink during Laser Glaive in order to cancel the otherwise long firing animation for Laser Glaive.
Similarly, you can use Arrow Rain during Laser Glaive to cancel the animation of Laser Glaive.
Jumping during the animation of Laser Glaive will send you higher.
Huntress in-game model
Huntress "Arctic" skin, which can be unlocked by obliterating yourself at the Obelisk on Monsoon difficulty.
Huntress was one of the original playable characters in the first Risk of Rain.
The lock-on used by Huntress's Strafe and Laser Glaive abilities is slightly less sensitive than the one used by the Royal Capacitor, and her main abilities can lock on to a different target than the capacitor on some occasions.
