Tips

  • 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.

Trivia

  • 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.
