Ripper is a tactics-scaling mutation which several arrows stuck in enemies fall out when the enemy is struck with a melee attack. Projectiles removed in this way deal additional damage to the target.


  • Special Effects:
    • If an enemy has projectiles stuck in it, each melee attack will make 6 projectiles fall out, dealing an extra [118 base] damage for each projectile.
  • Scaling: 118 × 1.15Stat - 1 damage per arrow

The blueprint's location

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


  • "Arrows" in this case means more than just projectiles from bows, it works with any weapons that leave their projectiles in enemies. This also includes weapons like the Throwing Knife Icon.pngThrowing Knife, Blowgun Icon.pngBlowgun, The Boy's Axe Icon.pngThe Boy's Axe or the Hemorrhage Icon.pngHemorrhage.
  • The main appeal of this Mutation is for regaining ammo more quickly, especially for fights with Bosses. Additionally, it can be used for quick burst damage with weapons like the Quick Bow Icon.pngQuick Bow that can pump projectiles into enemies very quickly.
  • 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 Icon.pngPhaser works as well.


  • 0.5: Introduced.
  • 0.7: Base damage per arrow removed increased from 60 to 100.
    • Cell cost increased from 50 to 100.
  • 2.4: Base damage per arrow removed increased from 95 to 118.
    • Arrows removed on hit increased from 3 to 6.
