The Symmetrical Lance is a spear-like melee weapon, which makes all hits critical for six seconds after rapidly killing two enemies.

Killing enemies quickly with this weapon is the best way to maximize its damage. However, the area of effect of the attack is a very narrow horizontal line so you will find it quite difficult to hit bat-like enemies and those slightly below or above you. It does hit slightly behind you as well.


  • Special Effects:
    • If the player kills 2 enemies within 1.5 seconds of each other with this weapon, all subsequent attacks deal 1.5x damage (251 base critical DPS) for 6 seconds.
    • The first hit of the combo deals weak knockback while the final hit deals somewhat strong knockback. The second swing also hits enemies behind you.
    • Breach Bonus: 0.5 / 1 / 1.5
      • Base Breach Damage: 120 / 210 / 412.5 (180 / 315 / 619)
      • Base Breach DPS: 408 (612)
    • Combo Duration: 1.82 seconds
      • First Hit: 0.8 (0.6 + 0.2)
      • Second Hit: 0.37 (0.17 + 0.2)
      • Third Hit: 0.65 (0.3 + 0.35)

      • Legendary Version: Justice
      • Forced Affix: Full Life Damage
        • "+50% damage when your health is at its maximum."


    • When The Hand of the King is defeated for the first time he will drop a special Symmetrical Lance with the following properties:
      • Has the affixes "Can break shields!" and "+300% damage to all enemies!". These affixes cannot appear on anything else.
      • It gives the player a point in all stats as if it was a legendary item.
      • It keeps dropping until the King is killed.
    • The Symmetrical Lance does not require a blueprint nor any cells to be unlocked. Rather, it is unlocked as soon as the Hand of the King is killed.
