Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a bug where you could shoot wand projectiles that received unarmed damage bonuses.
  • Fixed an issue where some achievements with only one criterion showed that criterion as partial completion in the description.
  • Fixed the text on Demon King Horns to correctly describe it as a replacement skin, rather than an additional effect.
  • Fixed an interaction between the Headhunter unique item and the Proximity Shield Nemesis mod, where the Proximity Shield did not expire.
