For the Vaal-themed counterpart, see Vaal Double Strike.

Double Strike is a melee attack that performs two fast attacks on a target enemy with the player's melee weapon(s). It deals bonus physical damage against bleeding enemies.

Skill functions and interactions

  • Multiple Hits: This attack hits twice, activating gain on hit twice, and giving two opportunities to activate chance-based effects such as blind, knockback, stun, and elemental status ailments. It does not, however, have two chances to crit. If one hit is a crit, the other will also be a crit.
