Short Gun

Short Gun - Vampire Survivors

The Short Gun allows you to send out bursts of bullets that disappear fairly quickly. The time between shots is quite long at the start of the game, so be careful.

To get the most out of this rifle, we strongly advise you to buy the Bracer as soon as possible, which is also used to upgrade it, as well as the Candelabrador.

Spread Shot

Spread Shot - Vampire Survivors

The Spread Shot lives up to its name. This weapon generates several bullets that scatter in lines similar to the spokes of a bicycle wheel. Used well, it's a very powerful weapon. Even more so on the Hectic Highway level.

For this weapon to be truly effective, you need to select the Duplicator as soon as possible. Next, we recommend you pick up the Spinach and the Bracer.

C-U-Laser

C U Laser - Vampire Survivors

See u later, did you have it? The C-U-Laser is not an easy weapon to pick up, especially at the start of the game, as it fires a laser beam in a straight line in the direction of your character. It requires a great deal of precision and foresight. Nevertheless, the more bonuses you accumulate, the more interesting it becomes.

We still advise you to find a second source of damage quickly enough to avoid dying stupidly.

And to make the most of the lasers, opt for the Spellbinder and Bracer.

Level 1. Throws a projectile in the current direction
Level 2. Damage +5 ; Shooting speed increased by 20%

Sonic Bloom

Sonic Bloom - Vampire Survivors

The Sonic Bloom generates circular waves that injure the enemies they hit. It's not easy to use at the start of the game, as the time between each shot is fairly long.

To do more damage, we recommend you take the Candelabrador, the Empty Tome and the Duplicator.

Homing Miss

Homing Miss - Vampire Survivors

The Homing Miss is particularly satisfying. This weapon fires heat-seeking missiles, which track enemies and spin above them before exploding.

The more heads you have at your disposal, the easier it will be to eliminate a large number of opponents. That's why the Duplicator is your best ally.

Level 1. Launches explosive projectiles that follow enemies

Multiplestage Missiles

Multistage Missiles is one of the most fun developments in this DLC, as it triggers total chaos when activated. Thanks to it, you'll have even more missiles on screen, and quite frankly, it's fun! Like the other upgrades, you'll need to pick up a Weapon Power-Up to get it. The Duplicator is also necessary, but as mentioned above, we strongly advise you to get it as soon as possible.


Diver Mines

Diver Mines - Vampire Survivors

The Diver Mines is without doubt the most difficult weapon to use in this DLC. This gun fires projectiles that spontaneously fly towards the bottom edge of the screen, unless they hit an obstacle.

Whether on the said obstacles or on the edges, the projectiles "catch" on them and move over them until they disappear.

We strongly recommend that you pick up a second weapon at the start of the game if you want to survive, especially if you're on a complicated level.

If you still want to use it, opt for the Duplicator, Spellbinder and Bracer.

Level 2. Cooldown reduced by 5s; Damage +10
Level 3. +1 Projectile; Firing speed increased by 40%

Atmo Torpedo - Vampire Survivors

Blade Crossbow

Blade Crossbow - Vampire Survivors

The Blade Crossbow sends spectral shurikens at nearby enemies. You don't really need to aim, so it's a fairly simple weapon to use. However, you're encouraged to make circular movements around groups of enemies for greater effectiveness, as the shurikens can inflict more damage this way thanks to their boomerang effect.

You can also make the most of this weapon's full potential by picking up the Empty Tome and Duplicator as soon as possible. The Spinach is also interesting.

Level 2. Damage +10
Level 3. Effects last 1s longer; Rate of fire increased by 25%
Level 4. +1 Projectile; Cooldown reduced by 1s

CFB2000-AD - Vampire Survivors

The evolution of the Blade Crossbow is entitled BFC2000-AD. It is obtained with a Weapon Power-Up and the Clover. It causes huge shurikens to appear from the bottom to the top of the screen. It's a pretty powerful weapon, allowing you to charge through the crowd without thinking too hard.


Prism Lass

Prism Lass - Vampire Survivors

The Pirsm Lass is a rather special sword that generates 'moving flames' on the ground in the direction the character is facing. It's not as easy to use as other weapons, but it's easier to control.

If you want to do more damage with it, we recommend you use the Empty Tome, for a quicker succession of 'shots'. It also goes very well with the Duplicator.

Level 1. Low chance of immobilising enemies
Level 2. +1 Projectile
Level 3. Damage +5
Level 4. Cooldown reduced by 5s
Level 5. Damage +5
Level 6. Range +20%; Rate of fire increased by 20%

It's a great weapon that lets you move around large waves of enemies without taking damage. You'll need Wings and a Weapon Power-Up to obtain it.


Metal Claw

Metal Claw - Vampire Survivors

The Metal Claw will awaken the savage spirit in every Vampire Survivor. With this weapon, your character will 'violently claw' nearby enemies.

It's a powerful weapon, but you'll need a more accurate one to make survival easier. To make the most of it, pick up the Armor as soon as possible, as it will be all the more effective.

Level 1. Slices horizontally.
Level 2. +1 Projectile; Cooldown reduced by 5s
Level 3. Range +50%
