An example of a Pirate.
Pirate is one of six playable classes in Rampage Knights, and can only be used after completing the Challenge Sailing the Seven Seas. The Pirate wields a Cutlass which is quick and moderately powerful. He also has strong kicks and stomps due to his peg legs, but cannot use boots. The Pirate starts the game with a bottle of Rum in the potion slot which can be drunk. This leads to a disorienting effect, causing the screen to wobble and the character to sway when running and move more slowly. However, it will also cause the player to regenerate all their health when they enter a new room. This drunk effect wears off after time.

Instead of a dash attack, the pirate has a cannon. This is activated like a regular dash attack and fires cannonballs in the direction the player is facing, causing damage to enemies, and knocking them backwards and to the ground. The player cannot move up and down whilst firing the cannon, although players can change the direction they are facing. The cannon has a 8 second reload time.

The Pirate is accompanied by a Naughty Parrot, which will attack enemies.


Strategies

The Pirate's cannon is best used against large groups of enemies, as it can hit multiple targets at once. Players cannot move up or down the screen when firing, so players should be sure they are aiming accurately before letting off a volley. Players can however look both forwards and backwards, letting them attack in both directions. The cannon takes a short time to fire. If players are hit during this period, they will be interrupted and will have to try and fire again. Such, players should stand at least a short distance away from any enemies before attempting to fire, reducing the chance of getting hit during this time. Since the cannon can knock enemies backwards, it can be a useful way of knocking enemies into chasms, avoiding potentially damaging fights.

The Pirate's rum causes a disorienting effect, but this is easily offset by it's healing properties. Players should save Rum for later, more difficult rooms, where they are likely to take large amounts of damage. This will be healed when they enter the next room.

Trivia

  • Despite the pirate's description stating that he "Has bottle of Rum and will not replace it", the Pirate's rum can be replaced with another potion after drinking it. This change occurred in Update 0.7.
