Where to find Ricochet Rifle

The player must pursue the Blink Thief to up to three locations, each of which grants the player twelve seconds to defeat him. If he is defeated at one of these locations, the player will obtain the Ricochet Rifle. If not, the The Blink Thief will disappear, and the area must be re-rolled for another opportunity.


How to use Ricochet Rifle

  • This weapon requires Long Gun Ammo.
  • A Weapon Mod can also be slotted into this weapon.

Ricochet Rifle Notes

  • Since Swamp of Corsus update, projectile no longer have a lifespan and instead have 4 total bounces (5 possible targets). After all total bounces have occurred, projectile will immediately de-spawn.
  • After initial bounce, will smart-pick another target within 10m.
  • First bounce deals 85% of the weapon's damage and subsequent bounces deals 75% of its damage to the target.
  • Weakspot modifier for this gun is +120%
  • Maximum vertical bounce range is 10 degrees when there is no bounce target within 10m
  • After initial enemy bounce, projectile slows slightly
  • Firing sound radius for this gun is 25m (alerts enemies within this range upon firing)
  • Can be very dangerous in enclosed, narrow spaces; each shot can bounce multiple times and an enemy will get damaged by every strike that happens to hit it.
  • It's possible to grab the gun before the thief steals it by using the blink mod fast enough. Be aware however that killing the blink thief afterward will grant you another copy of the gun in your inventory.

      I recommend farming for this weapon on Normal. I did it on Nightmare but it can go south really fast. You have a ton of adds to deal with while you're trying to kill the boss

          I got a Ricochet Rifle +9 by killing the Blink Thief from afar after he broke off the wall. He was just standing there the whole time while I constantly spammed my Sniper Rifle xD (It's a weird bug but oh wells)

            An all around amazing weapon for anyone considering apocalypse difficulty. Staggers mobs, insane mod gen, and if you run it with the nightmare spiral, you can live forever.

                  Don't use damage over time (like burn) against the thief, otherwise it will trigger the timer after each jump even if you don't see him.

                  • This crossbow is broken. Just get that slayer armor set or whatever else to improve ranged damage / reload speed and you'll be dominating enclosed areas with minimal effort. Charges mods really fast. For big opponents shoot at the floor in front of them so it bounces into them a few times from the ground. It's also a great way to just run through a dungeon because every shot that bounces from anything you shoot goes behind you. Meaning your back is covered. No blind sides. If anything is too close that just means the area is too small. Greater chance of getting more hits in.

                      You can have 2 Richochet Rifles. One from stealing weapon before boss take it and second from killing the boss.

                        Richochet Rifle elemental damage or physical? In the description of the Ricochet Rifle it is indicated that he shoots with energetic shells, but I did not notice that the Storm Amulet would give a + 20% buff for this crossbow.

                        • Just move forward and kill him I died and failed to kill him in 3 jumps he just came back and we got the Eh Crossbow. It's not great, does good on-hit damage but as the name says it all is bonces and doesn't really give you much more help on add clear. It doesn't reliably land on anything besides your main target, and only in tight hallways does it really work for its passive. Even then you may get one other hit on something else that you could kill with something else way faster with. So if you do end up not getting it your not missing much.
