Known issues

Due to the fact that summons are controlled by the server in multiplayer, it is highly recommended that the Pathfinder player be the host, otherwise there will be latency in commanding Squall.

The Pathfinder

The Pathfinder is a glass cannon melee survivor who commands a robotic falcon, Squall. Together, they can dish out tremendous DPS, and take down any game!

• Squall can be commanded to focus on selected enemies, or return to you when necessary.
• Unlike other melee survivors, you have low HP and no armor; poke from afar when necessary and choose your engagements wisely.
• The Pathfinder prefers items that increase his burst damage potential, while Squall benefits greatly from attack speed and critical chance.
• Lysate Cell is highly recommended!

This survivor was inspired by Insect Glaive from Monster Hunter, and Rexxar from the Warcraft series.

This is an early access, alpha release of a WIP survivor. He is still incomplete, and in active development. As such, please understand that he may be buggy, and that many things are still liable to change for the 1.0 release, even his gameplay and kit design. My intent on releasing him as he is now is to find bugs and to gather external feedback. Please feel free to contact Bog#4770 on discord with bug reports or feedback. For now, a config file has been provided for you to play around with some of his values.

In the case that this mod becomes deprecated or unplayable, and I have completely disappeared for an extended period of time and cannot be contacted, I grant full permission to update and maintain this mod to anybody who wishes to do so, as long as proper credit is given to myself and all others who have worked on Pathfinder. I will do my best to keep the github repo updated with all the latest project files.

Change Log

Latest Patch


• Fixed game crashing if attempting to use Fleetfoot while Nullified
    - I can't believe I didn't realize this sooner
Previous patches


• Massively reduced emission strength of the Thrust VFX

• Changed Pathfinder's default sort order in the character select lobby to be right after Loader
    - This can be configured


• Added lore entry


• Created new config option to enable/disable Squall's laser pointer

• Fixed camera not following the ragdoll post-death

• Shock Bolas' initial explosion now applies slight downward force to airborne enemies

• Squall will no longer leash to you while in Attack mode

• Minor code optimization


• Base duration of Thrust reduced from 0.8 to 0.7 seconds

• Slightly altered jump + descent animations

• Icons do not generate mipmaps anymore

• Added important disclaimer to ReadMe


• Updated cachedName in SurvivorDef

• Shock Bolas now always has a minimum 0.1 second aim duration

• Improved logic for RecalculateStats() hook


• Added Mastery skin

• Squall's missile launcher is back to firing projectiles instead of orbs
    - The orb missiles had poor synergy with Backup Mags, so I am reverting the change.
• Fleetfoot's dash distance will now receive diminishing returns from movement speed
    - To compensate, the base distance has been increased.
    - This will result in a greater dash distance at below ~185% movement speed, and lower distance at greater values.
• Rending Talons default cooldown reduced from 8 to 6 seconds.
• Rending Talons now grants a movement speed buff and 100% air control while airborne.

• Added a VFX trail to Rending Talons to better reflect its hitbox.
    - This is a temporary measure while I work on real VFX.
    - But I might just keep it as is.


• Improved logic for Go for the Throat
    - Should no longer interfere with Nemmando's Gouge (let me know if it still does)


• Item displays for Trophy Hunter's Tricorn and Sawmerang were producing wonky bugs so I'm temporarily disabling them while I work on a fix
• Spare Drone Parts added to Squall's item blacklist
    - He will still benefit from their effects should you pick up the item


• Added item displays for vanilla + SotV items
• Squall's missile launcher now fires an orb instead of a projectile
    - This should result in better performance and 100% accuracy, but missiles will no longer retarget
• Removed Kjaro's and Runald's bands from Squall's item blacklist
• Config should now update automatically with new patches


• (Hopefully) Fixed issue where Go for the Throat would not recharge Squall's battery as a guest in multiplayer
    - Might require further testing. Please contact me if the issue persists
• Minor code optimization


• This time for sure (please)


• Emergency update cause I'm a dumbass and broke some serious shit


• Allied Tesla Troopers' Tesla Gauntlet now recharges Squall's battery


• Thrust
    - Base damage increased 200% > 250%
    - Piercing damage multiplier reduced from 1.5 > 1.3
• Fixed some config inconsistencies
• Slightly adjusted Squall's missile launcher to fire a missile at the start instead of the halfway point
• Dio's Best Friend and Pluripotent Larva added to Squall's item blacklist
• Fixed issue where reviving with Dio's Best Friend or Pluripotent Larva would cause Squall's battery and skill icons to disappear



• Thrust : New functionality
    - Piercing. Thrust your spear forward for 200% damage.
    - Piercing Keyword: Striking with the tip of the spear deals 300% damage and bypasses armor instead.
• Explosive Javelin
    - Damage reduced 900% > 800%
    - Explosion now has "sweetspot" type damage falloff
• Shock Bolas
    - No longer deals damage on initial impact

    - Cooldown reduced 12s > 3s
    - Number of missiles reduced 4 > 2

• Attempted to network Squall's battery gauge. Let me know how this works in multiplayer.
• Fixed bug where, at extremely high attack speeds, Go for the Throat would strike infinitely


• Forgot to actually implement the config changes last time


• Activating Follow mode now teleports Squall to you if the distance is great enough
    - this should fix Squall not appearing in Voidling's phases 2 and 3
• Issuing an Attack Command will no longer cancel Go For the Throat
• Added config options for some skill CDs
• In multiplayer, Squall's beeping sounds should now only be audible to his owner
• Fixed issue with Rending Talons where being frozen would cause you to get stuck mid spinning animation
• Fixed more language tokens


• Actually included the right readme this time


• Squall now inherits your equipment (but won't use it)
