Vampire Survivors

How do I unlock the characters in Vampire Survivors?

When you start your Vampire Survivors adventure, your character choices are (very) limited. Don't worry, this is just the beginning! In total, you will have the possibility to unlock over 30 characters. Each one has its own characteristics, an initial weapon and various bonuses. Whether you want to play with the Whip or the Magic Wand, whether you want to play a Red Devil, a Skeleton, a Shrimp Dragon or a Gentleman, you'll find something to suit you.

But you still have to manage to unlock all these new faces... That's the whole point of this guide, as we give you the solution to unlock each of the 34 available characters currently, whether they are normal or secret!


Unlock all normal characters

Currently, it is possible to unlock a total of 25 normal characters in Vampire Survivors. They are classified as normal, since they are characters that are easily unlocked by completing a particular challengeThis is explained in the Steam achievements. For example, some will require you to raise a weapon to a minimum level, some will require you to kill a certain amount of enemies, and some will require you to find them on the map.

Here is the complete list of these characters, with their starting weapon, their passive, how to obtain them and their cost:
