Hi! Theres still an issue with the fire dmg of elites and the knockback, it would be good if that could be fixed too


So the new patch will make the games more stable but there is still some big issues that are still apparent.

Will the console community for Risk of Rain 2 need to wait another month or so to have those fixed as well? I’m not sure if you weren’t aware of them but there are still big ones

Going off the patch notes provided it seems like there should be more of the small things fixed like the fire elite trail damage and the intro music being wrong, I’m not a experienced coder but they do not seem like they would be as hard as they are to fix. Not saying the fixes you have done weren’t good but the feedback from console fans seem unhappy with how little was done.
Again elite fire damage and knock back is the main offenders for them but there is also

  • multiplayer being near unplayable

  • drones being too close to the player

  • some loadout options being locked even after being unlocked and even including default

  • void fields do more damage than they are meant to

  • can clip into crashed ships

  • mobile turrets don’t move

  • after a certain point all enemies don’t receive damage

If you need to find a check list if one is not there already then the pinned comment in this video has a checklist of bugs that the console version of the game suffers with Risk of Rain 2 is BUSTED on Consoles... - YouTube

Another way to help would be to get online and talk to members of the Risk of Rain community on social media because very few know about the tickets and others don’t have faith in them so having another way to find info on these issues will help you and also make the community more supportive of you than they are currently.
