Predatory Instincts Shipping Details.png

The Predatory Instincts is an uncommon damage item in Risk of Rain. On getting a critical hit on an enemy, critical strikes increase attack speed by 10%. Stacks up to 30%.[1]

You can see how many times this item has activated by looking at the colored strikes that appear above the survivor's head each time a critical hit is landed. The first critical hit will create yellow strikes, the second one will turn them orange and the third will turn it red. Landing a critical hit when you already had one will reset the timer before the boost wears off.

Item Synergies[]


  • The variables stored in memory show an 11% attack speed increase even though the item log says 10%.


  • In Co-op, if the Huntress dies before a Legendary Wisp spawns and another player kills it, the item is still unlocked because the Huntress technically didn't take damage. 
  • If Predatory Instincts is picked up during the activation of this item (attack speed buff), the player's base attack speed will be decreased.
Reason: When you pick up a new Predatory Instincts during the attack speed buff, your current attack speed is NOT increased instantly. However, when the buff ends in 3 seconds, the attack speed that deducted from you will be recalculated based on the new Predatory Instincts amount. (Thanks to User:Pandaman018).
