  • Adds Bandit to the character select and modifies his skills so that he feels a bit more like he did in RoR1. Highly customizable!

    • Blast (8 shots, 1.2s reload)
      • Fire a powerful slug for 200% damage.
      • Click faster to shoot faster!
      • Fire rate is 0.3s per shot when autofiring, 0.2s while mashing the fire button.
      • If you don't want the mash to shoot faster mechanic, I recommend setting Blast's Auto firerate and Max firerate to 0.25s in the config.
    • Lights Out (6s cooldown)
      • Take aim with a revolver, dealing 600% damage. If the ability kills an enemy, cooldowns are all reset to 0. Reloads Blast when used.
      • Experimental tweaks (Gain damage on levelup and Execute low HP enemies) can be enabled at the end of the config file. I recommend only enabling one of these at a time.
    • Smokebomb (6s cooldown)
      • Turn invisible. After 3 seconds or after using another ability, surprise and stun enemies for 140% damage.
    • Acid Bomb (6s cooldown)
      • Toss an explosive in a straight line for 400% damage.
      • Enemies caught in the explosion are Weakened.

Lights Out Execute and Acid Bomb must be enabled on the host to work.

  • 1.5.0
    • Updated to work with the Skills 2.0 postrelease patch. I was originally planning to hold off and release a big update with a ton of changes, but I figured that it would take too long to release so I backported some features from it.
