Want to know how to evolve weapons in Vampire Survivors? This roguelite indie game is rapidly gaining in popularity, as players discover the sheer joy of walking around a forest or library, slaying an ever-growing encroaching horde of monsters that just want to be very close to you.

It’s a relatively simple game to play, but mastering it and unlocking Vampire Survivors characters can get a little tricky if you don’t spec into the correct build from the start. To evolve an item in Vampire Survivors, you must first level up a weapon to its maximum level, collect its linked item when it appears on the level up screen, then kill a boss monster and open the chest it leaves behind. Unfortunately, you only have a few slots for weapons and items, so you must choose carefully.

The items that synergise well with a weapon aren’t necessarily the items you need to evolve them, so while you’ll want to pick up the Candelabrador if you have the Garlic weapon, you also need a Pummarola to power it up. To help you figure out which items you should keep on a run with the best Vampire Survivors characters, we’ve put together a list of all the possible Vampire Survivors weapon evolutions and which items you need to pick up when you level up.
