All passive objects in Vampire Survivors
Wave after wave will test your survival in Vampire Survivors. In order to get through the game, you will need to equip yourself well, with weapons, but also with passive items. In order to better understand all these items, we suggest you discover all the passive items.
If you are interested in weapons and their evolution, please refer to our guide to weapons.
What is the purpose of passive objects?
In Vampire Survivors, you can pick up two types of items, namely weapons and passive items. It is therefore important to distinguish between all these items. You can only carry 6 weapons and 6 passive items.
Better recovery, increased movement speed, more armour or more projectiles fired, passive objects give you various bonuses. Beware, however, that some have negative effects. This is particularly true of Metaglio Right. We will come back to the latter a little later in this guide.
If the bonus obtained thanks to a passive is interesting, it is not its only strong point, on the contrary. The major interest of these items appears when you seek to obtain more powerful weapons than the basic ones. In fact, when combined with the right weapon mounted to the maximum, the passives allow you to evolve the weapon in question. For example, the NO FUTURE is acquired with the Runetracer AND the Armor.
Passive Objects and associated Evolutions in one image
Because a picture is worth more than a thousand words, here is a quick summary of the different recipes to make weapons evolve thanks to passive objects. These are present in the second column of each recipe, except for the Bracelet, which evolves with itself, as well as the Fuwalafuwaloo, made from two weapons. Moreover, some of them require more than one item to be completed.
All Passive Objects
|Duplicator||Empty Tome||Gold and Silver Rings||Hollow Heart||Metaglio Left and Metaglio Right||Pummarola|
|Skull'O Maniac||Spinach||Spellbinder||Tiragisù||Torrona's Box||Wings|
As you might expect, theArmor reduces all types of damage from the enemies. Even if it's only one point, it could save you at some point.
Armor will pair particularly well with passives that give you a life or health bonus, such as Pummarola.
Level 1. Reduces damage received by 1. Increases retaliation damage by 10%.
Level 2. Reduces damage received by 1
Level 3. Reduces damage received by 1
Level 4. Reduces damage received by 1
Level 5. Reduces damage received by 1
Also, the Armor is necessary to obtain the NO FUTUREin conjunction with the Runetracer. NO FUTURE replaces the Runetracer's diamonds with lasers with the same properties. These create an explosion on every bounce or when you get hit. While the damage to a single target is not really that great, the fact that the weapon lasts a long time and goes through so many enemies means that it generally does more damage over time than most other weapons.
It is sometimes frustrating to not be able to pick up gems or other items from the ground, simply because we are too far away... This is where theAttractorb intervene. Thanks to this passive, you gain in collection range. Chickens and bags of gold are yours!
This passive item is therefore interesting if you want to gain experience and levels quickly. Combined with the Crownit will be even more effective.
Level 1. Increased range for picking up objects
Level 2. Range increased by an additional 33%
Level 3. Range increased by an additional 25%
Level 4. Range increased by an additional 20%
Level 5. Range increased by an additional 33%
Attractorb is a necessity to obtain La Borra. You will also need the Santa Water to the maximum level before achieving it. This advanced potion creates areas of flame at a distance, and all around the player. This process is continuous. Unlike the Santa Water, the flame zones are mobile and move closer to your character, burning the enemies they encounter. The Borra is particularly effective, as the enemies come to you on their own. As a result, the flames follow and hurt opponents continuously.
The Bracer allows you to acquire more projectile speeds. This is an important bonus, as some of them eventually disappear after a certain time. Therefore, if they move at a higher speed, they will travel a greater distance, hitting more enemies and inflicting more damage.
This is particularly the case for the King Bible, or the Runetracer.
Level 1. Increase in projectile velocity from 10%
Level 2. Speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 3. Speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 4. Speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 5. Speed increased by an additional 10%
If you have the Knife to the maximum level, and the Bracer, you will get a powerful weapon, namely the Thousand Edge. The Thousand Blades fire knives, without interruption, in front of your character. Its damage and recoil are respectable and can keep a boss at bay. This one will be more interesting when you have to fight your way through a huge wave of enemies.
The Candelabrador is the passive to choose to get more attack range. At its maximum level, it gives you +50% of range. This will allow you to hit more enemies, especially with time-limited weapons.
This statistic is interesting and several weapons will benefit greatly from the gain obtained. This is for example the case of the Santa Water, but also of the Axe and its evolution.
Level 1. Increased attack range of 10%
Level 2. Range increased by an additional 10%
Level 3. Range increased by an additional 10%
Level 4. Range increased by an additional 10%
Level 5. Range increased by an additional 10%
The Death Spiral, or Death Spiralcorresponds to the evolved form of the axe. It is obtained thanks to the Candelabrador. This scythe completely changes the way the initial weapon works, and fires in all directions around the character. In addition, the projectiles now shoot in straight lines, and no longer fall towards the bottom of the screen. If you are looking to clear the screen of all creatures, this is the weapon for you.
With the CloverLuck is on your side! In Vampire Survivors, the Luck statistic changes the frequency of certain in-game events, such as the ability to choose from 4 items instead of 3 when you level up or the ability to get multiple rewards in one chest.
In addition, this statistic influences certain weapons in various ways: increased critical hit rate or projectile explosion, for example.
Level 1. The character becomes more fortunate by 10%
Level 2. Chance of being luckier increased by 10%
Level 3. Chance of being luckier increased by 10%
Level 4. Chance of being luckier increased by 10%
Level 5. Chance of being luckier increased by 10%
By combining the Clover with the Crossyou get the Heaven Sword. This Heavenly Sword works in the same way as the Cross, but this one has a much wider area of action. In addition to inflicting heavy damage, it repels opponents enormously. It is also capable of devastating critical hits.
To gain experience quickly, the Crown will be the perfect object. With it, you can gain levels more easily. It will be even more effective when combined with the Attractorb, as you can collect the gems easily.
Nevertheless, beware. With these two passives, you don't particularly have your back, unlike the Armor or the Duplicator, which offer defence or projectiles respectively.
Furthermore, by choosing these passives, it becomes necessary to use the associated weapon evolutions.
Level 1. The character gains 8% of additional XP
Level 2. XP gain increased by 8%
Level 3. XP gain increased by 8%
Level 4. XP gain increased by 8%
Level 5. XP gain increased by 8%
As we have seen, the Attractorb will give you access to La Borra. The crown, on the other hand, allows you to obtain the Gorgeous Moonin conjunction with the Pentagram. This will make your game even more difficult, as the Pentagram may erase a number of gems from time to time. However, if you manage to get its evolution, you will get a formidable weapon. It will still wipe enemies, but all pickups will now be preserved. Furthermore, with the Gorgeous Moon you will get even more experience. Cumulatively, thanks to the maximised Crown, you have a bonus of +280%.
The Duplicator is probably one of the most interesting passive items in Vampire Survivors, as most weapons benefit from its effect. And for some of them, obtaining multiple projectiles is a necessity.
If you build a build around the AxisThe Duplicator will also be very effective with the use of a new passive, the Duplicator, which will be used to inflict sufficient damage. The Duplicator will also be very effective with the Fire Wand or the Cherry Bomb. With the latter, you can accumulate explosions, which will get you out of a bad situation.
Level 1. Weapons fire more projectiles
Level 2. +1 projectile
The Lightning RingWhen combined with the Duplicator, this results in an extremely dangerous ring: The Thunder Loop. This creates a second lightning bolt where the first one fell a few seconds before. In addition, there is no longer a minimum delay between two bolts of lightning, which means that with the right items, you can create a real lightning storm on the field.
TheEmpty Tome is the ideal ally for weapons with a limited firing frequency. This is particularly true of the Axe or the Fire Wand. By reducing cooldowns, this passive allows you to fire more projectiles in succession, thus gaining firepower.
Level 1. Reduction of 8% weapon cooldowns
Level 2. Cooldowns reduced by an additional 8%
Level 3. Cooldowns reduced by an additional 8%
Level 4. Cooldowns reduced by an additional 8%
Level 5. Cooldowns reduced by an additional 8%
It will also benefit the Magic Wandand even necessary if you want to play with the Holy Wand. By combining the former with the Empty Tome, you get an advanced version of the wand. The latter can fire continuously, regardless of your Recovery stat. Its rate of fire, combined with its damage and recoil, can keep small and large enemies at bay. Beware of large waves though, this weapon alone may not be enough.
Gold and Silver Rings
The Gold and Silver Rings are special liabilities. You must first unlock them by collecting the Yellow Sign on the Moongolow card. Moreover, you can't get them by going up a level, you'll have to find them on the ground.
We advise you to go for the Silver before the Gold, so that you can benefit from the bonuses and then the malus, and not the other way round.
Level 1. Wear the ... Clock ...
Level 2 to Level 9. Attack duration and range increased by 5% at each level
Level 1. ... With .... Lancet
Level 2 to Level 9. Curse increased by 5% at each level. This involves increasing the speed and life of enemies, as well as their number and frequency of appearance.
These two rings can be used separately, but are of little use alone. As mentioned in the two descriptions of level 1, they must be combined with the Clock Lancet. In doing so, you will gain access to a ring to eliminate them all. The Infinite Corridor allows you to immediately reach the +12 Projectile required for a turn of the Clock Lancet dial. As soon as this ring rings the 12 o'clock bell, a zone is created around your character. The power of the Infinite Corridor reaches its peak: the HP of enemies is divided by two.
Life is a limiting point in survival on Vampire Survivors. When your bar drops to zero, you lose... unless you get a resurrection. L'Hollow Heart does not do this, but gives you more life to avoid the worst.
With each level of this passive item, you receive an additional 20% of maximum life, which is based on your max life at the time, not your base life. Remember to heal yourself after each gain to refill your life gauge.
Level 1. Maximum life increased by 20%
Level 2. Maximum life increased by an additional 20%
Level 3. Maximum life increased by an additional 20%
Level 4. Maximum life increased by an additional 20%
Level 5. Maximum life increased by an additional 20%
This liability is also used to develop the Whipin a more elaborate, vampiric version, the Bloody Tear. Bloody Tears work in the same way as the Whip, except that each hit that hits at least one enemy gives you HP. As a beginner, this is probably one of the first evolutions you will encounter. It is probably the best healing item in the game, and will be very useful for survival.
Metaglio Left and Metaglio Right
Like the Silver and Gold Rings, the Metaglio Left and Right must be unlocked by collecting the Yellow Sign. They will not appear in the item choices when gaining levels, and must be collected from the ground.
It is interesting to note that these objects now occupy only one slot when they are both in your inventory. If you are looking to buy them, the Left is the best choice, as it will give you protection.
Level 1. Channels dark powers to protect the wearer
Level 2 to Level 9. Health recovery of 0.1HP/s and maximum life increased by 5% at each level
Level 1. Channels dark powers to curse the wearer
Level 2 to Level 9. Curse increased by 5% at each level. This involves increasing the speed and life of enemies, as well as their number and frequency of appearance.
The true power of these two passive objects is seen when they are combined at Laurelto form the Crimson Shroud. This magical cloak will give you an extra layer of protection. As long as you don't take any damage, it charges. If you take damage in any way, you become immortal and consume the charge to send it back to the creature. The longer the cloak has been charging, the more damage is returned. Furthermore, and this is the other interesting point of this weapon, you can no longer take damage of more than 10PV per hit.
The Hollow Heart allows you to gain maximum health. The PummarolaThis is because it modifies your ability to recover hit points.
If you're the type of person who likes to run into the crowd, without paying too much attention to nearby enemies, this passive might appeal to you.
Level 1. The hero covers 0.2HP/s
Level 2. Health recovery of 0.2HP/s
Level 3. Health recovery of 0.2HP/s
Level 4. Health recovery of 0.2HP/s
Level 5. Health recovery of 0.2HP/s
It will be even more interesting if it is combined with Garlic. Together they give you access to the Soul Eater. This evolution covers a particularly large area, allowing you to suck some of the HP out of affected opponents, in addition to inflicting damage. Furthermore, every 60HP recovered, the damage increases by one point. Since you have the Pummarola at your disposal, we advise you to raise it to the maximum level to increase the damage of the Soul Eater.
This object is a cursed object! Despite this, the Skull O'Maniac can be very interesting. By increasing the number of enemies and making them stronger, you take risks. Nevertheless, you have more targets to eliminate. As a result, you will be able to get experience faster and gain levels more easily.
Level 1 to Level 5. Curse increased by 10% at each level. This involves increasing the speed and life of enemies, as well as their number and frequency of appearance.
In addition, if you play with the Song of ManaThis liability is a must. It evolves in Mannajja with the Skull O'Maniac. While the Song of Mana propels particles up and down the screen, this enhanced version will send them all around the player, through circles that move away. These particles are limited in their horizontal path by a sort of invisible wall, which they eventually bounce off and return to your hero. The time between activations is rather long, but this is compensated by a relatively long window of particle activity.
Poppey ate spinach to become stronger, you will gain power with the Spinach.
If you're not sure which passive to choose, this one is a safe bet. Most of the weapons in Vampire Survivors benefit from its damage bonus.
Level 1. Increased damage of 10%
Level 2. Damage increased by an additional 10%
Level 3. Damage increased by an additional 10%
Level 4. Damage increased by an additional 10%
Level 5. Damage increased by an additional 10%
If the Fire Wand fires simple fireballs, the HellfireHe shoots meteors at her. This evolution is obtained thanks to the Laurel. The glowing rocks are able to penetrate enemies and walls. The Hellfire inflicts colossal damage. Since the projectiles are slow, you can hit the same enemy several times. Therefore, avoid using the Bracer, which will greatly reduce your firepower.
The Spellbinder grants a duration bonus to the effects induced by certain weapons. Its use therefore depends entirely on your choice of equipment.
If you play with the Song of Mana or the Bone or the Runetracer, this passive is a good choice.
Level 1. Increased duration of 10% weapon-induced effects
Level 2. Duration increased by an additional 10%
Level 3. Duration increased by an additional 10%
Level 4. Duration increased by an additional 10%
Level 5. Duration increased by an additional 10%
The King Bible will also benefit from its bonus. In addition, with the Spellbinder, it evolves into a Unholy Vespers. This secular collection works like the Bible, with one difference. Since it has a life span equal to its recovery time, it seems to go on and on without ever disappearing. In addition to inflicting damage, these writings repel creatures enormously. The circle of protection thus generated is particularly effective.
Italian gastronomy is invited in Vampire Survivors with the Tiragisù. With a first extra life, you'll get a little further into your game; with a second, you'll probably be able to reach the time needed to finish the level. You could even survive Death itself if necessary.
We advise you to use this weapon if you play with Phiera Der Tuphello and Eight The Sparrow. Otherwise, you can turn to the Hollow Heart or the Pummarola.
Level 1. Your hero comes back to life with 50% of his HP.
Level 2. Addition of an extra resurrection
The Tiragisù allows for the development of Phiera Der Tuphello and Eight The Sparrow as Phieraggi. When maxed out, the two weapons can merge, similar to Peachone and Ebony Wings, to take up a single inventory slot. This new weapon now shoots lasers that rotate around your character in a clockwise direction continuously. These lasers deal damage to all creatures they come into contact with. Unlike the birds, Phieraggi cannot continue to gain levels.
Like the Skull O'Maniac, the Torrona's Box is a cursed item. This means that you will boost the enemies if you decide to take it from your inventory.
In return, you get an interesting bonus, which increases several different statistics.
Level 1. Cursed item, but increases Omni by 4%. This PowerUp grants an increase in Duration, Range, Projectile Speed and Power.
Level 2 to Level 8. Omni increased by an additional 3% at each level
Level 9. Curse increased by 100%
The Torrona's Box is also needed to develop the Victory Sword in Sole Solution. This evolution does not replace the original sword, nor does it take up a slot in your weapon inventory, as it is acquired as a passive item. The Sole Solution works in phases. First, it generates sparks from your character. Then, it summons a swirling galaxy, dealing damage to everything visible on the screen.
The Wings are an interesting passive item, but not especially mandatory. They are mainly suitable for players who are not sufficiently comfortable with the initial speed.
In addition, the Peachone and its evolutions benefit from a higher speed of movement when your speed of movement increases. In this respect, the wings can be interesting.
Level 1. Hero moves 10% faster
Level 2. Movement speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 3. Movement speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 4. Movement speed increased by an additional 10%
Level 5. Movement speed increased by an additional 10%
If you have decided to play with the Wings, we advise you to add the Shadow Pinion to your arsenal. Not only does it benefit from the increased movement speed, but it also evolves in Valkyrie Turner. This evolution generates a persistent trail of flames that does immediate damage. If you stop, the flames will move in the direction you are facing. This means that if you play the game on the keyboard, you can only fire them in 8 directions, as opposed to the controller, which gives you access to any angle of fire via the pad.
