In Vampire Survivors, there are multiple characters you can play. Each one has a different starting weapon and a unique passive. You start with Antonio, who isn’t bad by any means, but he does fall short compared to many of the unlockable characters. Let’s take a look at how to improve your roster.

How to unlock every playable character in Vampire Survivors

If you want to unlock the rest of the playable characters, you will first need to get a lot of gold. Most of the characters require you to purchase them with gold you find throughout the game, and as you get better, you will be able to rake in plenty of it. In addition to needing gold, some of the characters have an unlock condition that you need to fulfill before they can even be purchasable on the character select screen. Be sure to do that before trying to purchase them.
