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 45 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 for unlocking each of the available characters currently, whether they are normal or secret!
