You can now do the *loads shotgun with malicious intent* meme in Vampire Survivors!

How to Get Prototype C in Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC

First things first, we got to supply you with a Spread Shot. It’s easy to get if you play as Ariana because Ariana has Spread Shot as her starting weapon. If you want to unlock her starting weapon, Spread Shot, for every other character in Vampire Survivors, you must survive with Ariana for 15 minutes at any stage. For someone who has hundreds of hours in Vampire Survivors, this won’t be a problem, but if you’re a newer player, I’ll give you some tips.

  • Buy regeneration, health, and armor power-ups for survivability improvement.
  • Buy cooldown, damage, and experience power-ups for damage output increase.
  • If you have an absurd amount of Gold, consider buying Golden Eggs. They are 10,000 Gold a piece!
  • When choosing the map, definitely choose to play in Hurry Mode. It makes the clock run twice as fast, so you will need to live for seven and a half minutes only.

The evolution of Spread Shot is done by leveling this weapon to its maximum level (8), grabbing a Weapon Power-Up item, having at least one level of Empty Tome, and picking up a Treasure Chest. If the RNG favors you, you’ll get a couple of Prototype C drones to support you.

Here are the level-up bonuses of the Spread Shot:

  • Level 2: Shoots two additional projectiles.
  • Level 3: Increases the Base Speed by 50%. Shoots two additional projectiles.
  • Level 4: Increases the Base Damage by 10. Reduces the cooldown by 0.2 sec.
  • Level 5: Increases the Base Speed by 50%. Shoots two additional projectiles.
  • Level 6: Increases the Base Damage by 10. Reduces the cooldown by 0.2 sec.
  • Level 7: Increases the Base Speed by 50%. Shoots two additional projectiles.
  • Level 8: Increases the Base Damage by 5. Reduces the cooldown by 0.2 sec.

How to Unlock Lucia in Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC

After you make your first Prototype C evolution, you can purchase the fourth character in the Vampire Survivors Operation Guns DLC: Lucia. Lucia is a bit pricier than the rest of the gang, so I hope you saved some buck. Lucia cost me 4400 Gold.

Now, you can pick up and play as Lucia, with the goal of unlocking and evolving her weapon C-U-Laser. More guides for this DLC can be found at the Vampire Survivors Game Hub.
