Not sure who to form a party out of? Our Vampire Survivors tier list is here to help you. In this guide, we rank all of the characters from S tier to D tier, allowing you to waste no time in guessing which characters to use. What’s more, we’ll keep it updated alongside new character additions and balance patches. So, we recommend that you bookmark this page and check back often.

Vampire Survivors is an indie roguelite that challenges you to simply survive for a set time period across a number of different stages. You’ll unlock new weapons, characters, and environments as you progress, which helps vary up the experience.

You can learn more about it on the official Steam page. We’ve also put together a Vampire Survivors characters list and Vampire Survivors evolution guide.

Vampire Survivors Tier List FAQ

Now we’ll answer a bunch of questions you may have about Vampire Survivors or tier lists in general.

What Is A Tier List?

A tier list is a list of characters that you can unlock in a game – particularly a gacha game – ordered from best to worst. We rank from S tier to D tier, with S being best and D being worst.

The purpose of a tier list is to help you, the player, determine who the best characters to unlock are, so you can save time and money. Once you know who the best characters are, you can form a party out of them and ignore the others.

How Did We Pick Our Vampire Survivors Tier List?

We used a combination of the following factors when deciding on our Vampire Survivors tier list:

  • Personal experience
  • Community feedback
  • General consensus from other tier lists

However, it’s worth noting that tier lists are subjective by nature. This is based on our experience with the game, but yours may vary. So, we recommend that you take this with a pinch of salt and play Vampire Survivors for yourself.

How Often Do We Update Our Vampire Survivors Tier List?

We update this tier list regularly to ensure that it always follows the latest meta. Typically, you can expect an update around the following happenings:

  • A new character releases
  • Balance changes

There may be a small delay between the above two events as we’ll return to the game to check out the new character for ourselves, or to see how the balance patches have affected things.
