This mod requires the following mods to function

tristanmcpherson-R2API-3.0.30 icon

A modding API for Risk of Rain 2

Preferred version: 3.0.30



This mod exchanges Artificer's Utility Skill, Snapfreeze, with her alternate special Ion Surge
Includes config options to only move Ion Surge to Utility, and to allow Flamethrower to be used during Ion Surge / while sprinting (Off by default).
Recommended to be installed alongside mods like EruptionUtil, EggsSkills or ArtificerFrostSurge for variety.

Known Issues & Compatibility

Fully compatible with ArtificerExtended
If you don't have Ion Surge unlocked and it's your only available utility then you will not be able to see it in the lobby, but you will still have it on entering the game.
If you have Ion Surge and a special other than flamethrower equipped, picking up an Ancient Scepter replaces your special with a second copy of ion surge.


Thanks to Raus for the original IonUtility, upon which the (very simple) code for this mod is based.


Place ArtiSkillSwap.dll in /Risk of Rain 2/BepInEx/plugins/
Or just use a mod manager. In fact, I recommend that.
