"Whether you need to chop up a cobb salad or your mortal enemy's torso, these curved beauties never fail."
—In-game description.

The Ripper is a melee weapon appearing in Shadow Warrior 2.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Ripper are a pair of short blades rewarded for completing story mission Hot Blooded.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Factually, Ripper is very lackluster. It has short reach, mediocre damage and no specials. The rate of attack is about the only positive bit about this set of blades.

As far as combat performance goes, Lil' Wang is likely a better option - and if starter weapon is a better option, there is very little reason to ever use these blades.

On a separate note, Ripper has an interesting synergy with Sting, as it extends the hitbox of the skill. In compliment with dash and drag-of-mouse, this gives more room for melee users to crowd-control aside from Vortex. The interaction is available to all short-blade and dual-wield weapon, except for claws.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This weapon is a callout to blades used by Vin Diesel in the Riddick film series.
