The Imp is a returning enemy in Risk of Rain 2.


The Imp often teleports, both in and out of combat, making a visible purple flash. Their attack pattern consists of approaching the player and flailing their arms rapidly.

Their ability to teleport makes hitting them consistently a slight hassle, but they don't seem to decide where they teleport. This may cause an Imp that could swing at the player to teleport away from them, or one that is not in their line of fire to enter it.

Since their movement is chaotic, wide-ranged explosions or tracking attacks are best suited to killing them. Stunning them prevents them from teleporting.
