Savage Acrid

The goal of this mod is to make the Blight Melee Acrid playstyle more viable.
These buffs are designed to reward stacking Blight, while not doing much for Poison.


  • Dependent Mods

    • Regenerative now actually heals 10% HP like the description says.
    • Blight now refreshes its timer when new stacks are added.
    • Acrid's M1 hitbox is bigger and more reliable.
  • Regenerative

    • Regenerative attacks now deal +10% TOTAL damage for each stack of Blight + Poison on an enemy.
    • Regenerative attacks now refresh the duration of all Poison/Blight stacks on an enemy.
  • Ravenous Bite

    • Heals an additional +5% max HP on-kill.
  • Caustic Leap

    • This skill now slams airborne enemies downwards with great force.
  • Frenzied Leap (Alt Utility)

    • This skill is now Regenerative, and benefits from the aforementioned Regenerative changes.
    • This skill now slams airborne enemies downwards with great force.


Place Savage_Acrid.dll in /Risk of Rain 2/BepInEx/plugins/



  • Added config to Enable/Disable Regenerative damage bonus and Utility skill slam. Number changing will not come until later when I'm confident the mod is in a good spot.
  • Regenerative damage bonus reduced +20% -> +10%. Main reasons behind this are that Blight is easy to stack, and Acrid's Regenerative skills all deal high base damage. I'll be keeping an eye on this to see how it feels.
  • Utility downwards slam force reduced 3200 -> 2700.
  • Both Utilities now slam airborne enemies downwards. Idea is that you're making a choice between Blight stacking (default) or Sustain+Damage (alt).
