Blade Wolf is the second story DLC for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. Initially a commercial release, it was made available for free around the time of the PC version's release, where it was included by default. It is a separate story campaign with Blade Wolf as the protagonist, a boss for Raiden in the original game. It is a robot wolf with a chainsaw on its back who originally worked for Mistral. The campaign is set prior to the encounter with Raiden at Abkhazia in the original game and the story is told as a flashback. Just like the first DLC most of the environments are reused from the original game, most notably R-01.
Just like Raiden in the original game Blade Wolf can use light and heavy attacks, as well as zandatsu. When not running the wolf moves at a very slow pace, allowing for stealth kills. It is also possible to hide under walls in certain sections to sneak up on enemies using a piercing tail attack. Next to the regular attacks and dodging it is possible to launch knives and to parry. There are also new VR missions. The final encounter and the only boss battle is against Khamsin, a new character.
