How to Get Atmo-Torpedo in Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC

To unlock the Diver Mines and evolve them to Atmo-Torpedo we’ll first need the reptilian character Newt Plissken. I found that unlocking Newt is similar to Stanley Ironside since you need to pick up a consumable, in this case, 28 Grenades, across all your runs. The Diver Mines are Newt’s starting weapon so you just need to survive any run in any level for 15 minutes to unlock the mines for all other characters.

From here, either in this run or with any other character in the future you can evolve the Diver Mines to Atmo-Torpedos like this:

  • Get the Diver Mines to Level 8.
  • Find the new Weapon Power-Up evolution item.
  • Pick up at least 1 Level of Attractorb.

This unlocks Atmo-Torpedos which will shoot out explosive AOEs that pull enemies in. If you’re interested here are the Diver Mines upgrade levels:

  • Diver Mines Level 2: Cooldown reduced by 0.5 seconds. Base Damage up by 10.
  • Diver Mines Level 3: Fire 1 more projectile. Effect lasts 0.5 seconds longer.
  • Diver Mines Level 4: Base Area up by 30%. Base damage up by 10.
  • Diver Mines Level 5: Fire 1 more projectile. Base Speed up by 40%.
  • Diver Mines Level 6: Cooldown reduced by 0.5 seconds. Base damage up by 10.
  • Diver Mines Level 7: Fire 1 more projectile. Effect lasts 0.5 seconds longer.
  • Diver Mines Level 8: Effect lasts 1 seconds longer. Base Speed up by 20%.

There’s even another character unlock tied to this weapon.

How to Unlock Simondo in Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC

You can unlock Simondo in Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC by evolving the Diver Mines into Atmo-Torpedo. He’ll be available for purchase right after your current run. I picked him up for 92000 gold but it all depends on how many characters you’ve unlocked already.

And that’s how to unlock and evolve the Diver Mines in Vampire Survivors. For more Vampire Survivor Operation Guns guides, check out how to unlock and evolve the Metal Claw from Bahamut.
