The blueprint's location

Ripper's blueprint lies in a secret area on top of the Promenade's entrance. Requires Spider Rune IconSpider Rune to climb it.

Notes[]

  • "Arrows" in this case means more than just projectiles from bows, as it works with any weapon that could leave projectiles stuck in enemies. This also includes weapons like the Throwing Knife IconThrowing Knife, Blowgun IconBlowgun, The Boy's Axe IconThe Boy's Axe, the Hemorrhage IconHemorrhage, or even the Killing Deck IconKilling Deck.
  • The main appeal of this Mutation is for rapid ammo recovery, especially for fights with Bosses. Additionally, it can be used for quick burst damage with weapons like the Quick Bow IconQuick Bow that can riddle enemies with projectiles in seconds, as it makes them much more sustainable than usual.
  • Since dive attacks deal melee damage, one does not actually need a melee weapon to remove ammo using Ripper, and can instead perform a dive attack if necessary. Phaser IconPhaser works as well.
