Many aspects of Risk of Rain 2 remain a mystery even years after its release. That goes for Survivors of the Void, the game’s upcoming expansion. However, a recent livestream and trailer from Hopoo Games clarified a few points.
The stream teased some possible details about the upcoming Survivors of the Void expansion, while the trailer focused on the Railgunner, one of the new characters coming to Risk of Rain 2. According to the trailer, survivors of the Void will be released on March 1st.
With a few interesting twists, the new Railgunner is a high-damage sniper whose kit is well suited for taking on small groups or single targets.
The M99 Sniper is the game’s first first-person scope, highlighting weak points on enemies that the Railgunner can exploit to deal critical damage.
With her XQR Smart Round Sytem, she will be able to fire low-damage tracking shots at close range. The M99 can also be Supercharged to deliver a single massive hit capable of one-shotting bosses at the cost of temporarily disabling all other weapons.
The Railgunner can use the Concussion Device to knock back enemies and herself for crowd control and mobility.

A few ominous shapes floated in the distance, at least one of which appeared to be the massive whale seen in some of the expansion’s promotional imagery.
