Risk of Rain 2 Ukulele: Why To Stack And Use it More

Stack Ukulele Items and Become a Master of AoE Damage!

Whether you are playing Risk of Rain 2 with a humanoid character, like Captain, or a half-robot-half-plant such as Rex, having a ukulele in your inventory is always a relief. The weapon not only is excellent when it comes to crowd control, but it also goes well in synergy with other offensive items such as Unstable Tesla Coil and Sentient Meat Hook.

Key Highlights
  • The Ukulele unleashes chain lightning attacks, hitting enemies within a 20-meter radius and dealing 80% damage.
  • It is highly effective against large groups of enemies, making it a valuable asset in overwhelming situations.
  • Ukulele is a common loot item obtainable by defeating monsters, visiting shrines, or looting chests.

Why You Should Keep Ukulele in Your Inventory

The ukulele item unleashes chain lightning attacks, especially potent when playing as Loader, with a 25% chance per hit to trigger AoE chain lightning within a 20-meter radius, dealing 80% total damage. Despite its uncommon status, the ukulele is an underrated weapon.

Regardless of solo or team play, having a ukulele is akin to having a reliable companion. For example, with characters like Bandit, who excel in one-on-one combat, the ukulele becomes invaluable when facing hordes of enemies. Its ability to deal massive damage quickly makes it essential for solo runs. Therefore, keeping Ukulele in your inventory is highly recommended for any Risk of Rain 2 run.

What Benefits Can You Get By Stacking Ukulele?

  • Versatility: Whether solo or with teammates, the ukulele acts as a valuable companion, especially useful for characters like Bandit facing overwhelming enemy numbers.
  • Damage Potential: It enables rapid successive damage, making it a crucial asset for solo runs.

Stacking Ukulele:

  • Enhanced Damage Output: Similar to other offensive items, stacking Ukulele amplifies AoE damage. Each stack increases the radius by two meters and targets two additional enemies.
  • Stack Limit: There’s a cap of eleven stacks, ensuring diminishing returns beyond this limit. Remember this while collecting Ukuleles during runs, especially when playing characters like Commando or Acrid.

How to Get Ukulele?

As a green or uncommon loot item in the game, the ukulele is not hard to get in Risk of Rain 2. You should get plenty of this item type by defeating monsters, visiting shrines, or looting chests of all sizes. It really is not that difficult to find in the game.

How Proc Coefficient of Ukulele Comes into Play

In Risk of Rain 2, Proc Coefficient is a fancy term of indicating a multiplier of an item to trigger, have a high duration or longer status effect. Naturally, the higher the Proc Coefficient, the better is the item. So, there are two Proc Coefficients of the weapon when it comes to Ukulele. The first one is related to the chance to trigger the AoE damage output of the damage item. The second is ukulele’s lighting arcs, which have a 0.2 Proc Coefficient.

Now, you must that in Risk of Rain 2, items that have lowered Proc Coefficient essentially hit faster than others. These valuable collectibles also tend to have also more AoE attacks as well. It also explains why the ukulele is an AoE kind of offensive item type. Suppose you consider the individual Proc Coefficients of this uncommon (green) item. In that case, you’d realize how powerful a ukulele item gets when you stack more of the said items and increase the overall stack from 0.2 to say 0.5.

It’s all about playstyles in Risk of Rain 2. You can use the MUL-T character in the game, which also has the lower Proc Coefficient on its attacks. Still, if you know what items and equipment to go with, you will dominate your runs.
