The Soldier's Syringe is a returning item in Risk of Rain 2.

The item increases attack speed by 15% (+15% per stack), decreasing the intervals between individual primary attacks and increasing the animation speed of all skills by a factor of 1.15. This also means that any attack that needs to charge, such as Artificer's Charged Nano-Bomb.png Charged Nano-Bomb, will charge faster as well.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Soldier's Syringe only increases the animation speed of skills; it does not affect their cooldowns. Most primary skills have no cooldown, the exceptions being Artificer.png Artificer, Bandit.png Bandit, MUL-T.png MUL-T, and the Heretic.png Heretic. This does not mean that Syringes are useless on these Survivors, though.
    • Higher attack speed will shorten the charge time for Artificer's Charged Nano-Bomb.png Charged Nano-Bombs and Cast Nano-Spear.png Cast Nano-Spears. If combined with multiple Backup Magazine.pngBackup MagazinesBgCommon.pngBackup Magazine.pngAdd an extra charge of your Secondary skill.
      Add +1 (+1 per stack) charge of your Secondary skill.
      , this can cause her damage potential to increase significantly.
    • Bandit's primaries Burst.png Burst and Blast.png Blast can be used as fast as the player can press the button, which is not affected by attack speed boosts. However, more attack speed will allow them to reload faster.
      • Higher attack speed also speeds up the animations for Lights Out.png Lights Out and Desperado.png Desperado, reducing the delay between activating the skill and dealing damage.
    • MUL-T's Scrap Launcher.png Scrap Launcher can be fired faster with greater attack speed, and the Syringe applies to both of MUL-T's selected primary attacks.
    • Heretic's Slicing Maelstrom.png Slicing Maelstrom secondary will charge faster with Syringes, allowing her to dispose of groups of monsters more quickly.
      • This also applies for any Survivor equipped with the Hooks of Heresy.pngHooks of HeresyBgLunar.pngHooks of Heresy.pngReplace your Secondary Skill with 'Slicing Maelstrom'.
        Replace your Secondary Skill with Slicing Maelstrom.

        Charge up a projectile that deals 175% damage per second to nearby enemies, exploding after 3 seconds to deal 700% damage and root enemies for 3 (+3 per stack) seconds. Recharges after 5 (+5 per stack) seconds.
