Wondering how to pull off weapon evolutions in Vampire Survivors? We've got you covered.

In Vampire Survivors, Evolution is a game mechanic that allows players to change a base weapon to a stronger evolved weapon using a passive item as a catalyst. Evolved weapons usually inherit most of the base weapon stats with extra effects, which makes the gameplay all the more fun, especially in a time-survival game with rogue-lite elements like Vampire Survivors. We’ve put together a comprehensive guide on how to make every Evolution in Vampire Survivors.

To pull off Evolutions, players must first make sure they fulfill certain prerequisites, some of which the game just does not make obvious.

Here is the general formula that players must follow in order to evolve weapons in Vampire Survivors:

  1. Reach Level 8 with the base weapon they'd like to evolve
  2. Have the Accessory that corresponds to the weapon evolution
  3. Open a Treasure Chest after the timer reaches 10:00

After doing this, the chest will then grant an evolved weapon as its first reward in place of the usual random upgrade.

On evolution, the base weapon is removed and the evolved weapon is added. The passive item remains unaffected.

Here are all of the weapon evolution combos in Vampire Survivors:

  • Axe + Candelabrador: Death Spiral
  • Cross + Clover: Heaven Sword
  • Fire Wand + Spinach: Hellfire
  • King Bible + Spellbinder: Unholy Vespers
  • Knife + Bracer: Thousand Edge
  • Magic Wand + Empty Tome: Holy Wand
  • Whip + Hollow Heart: Bloody Tear
  • Garlic + Pummarola: Soul Eater
  • Santa Water + Attractorb: La Borra
  • Lightning Ring + Duplicator: Thunder Loop
  • Song of Mana + Skull O’Maniac: Mannajja
  • Pentagram + Crown: Gorgeous Moon
  • Runetracer + Armor: NO FUTURE
