Vampyr Trophy Guide – Action RPG Must-Know Info

Latest posts by Arron Kluz (see all)

Vampyr is an exciting action RPG that sees players controlling a doctor turned into a vampire at the height of a pandemic. Conflicted between their Hippocratic oath and their needs as a vampire, players have to decide whether or not to relieve their hunger by feasting on the city’s people. The city and story of Vampyr also react to the player’s decisions, meaning that eating or killing a person will permanently alter the story and world of the game. This makes the game’s story extraordinarily dynamic and exciting, but it also is a great game to chase the platinum trophy for.

Key Info Up Front

Genre: Action RPG

Difficulty: 3/10

Number of Playthroughs: 1 using saves

Time to Complete: Approximately 30-40 hours

Number of Trophies: 29


For your playthrough of Vampyr, there are a few things to be aware of. Firstly, you have to play on Normal or Hard difficulty. Normal is the difficulty that the game was released with, while Story and Hard were added in a patch later on. Story difficulty locks you from getting certain rewards, which prevents you from getting all of the trophies, so you’ll have to do a second playthrough if you play on that one.

You’ll also have to do a pacifist run, which means not feeding on any characters. This makes the game harder since feeding on people is the primary way of gaining experience points, but it is necessary.

To save points, you’ll want to make a backup save right after starting the quest. Take me to a Hospital in Chapter One. Play through the chapter until you get the option to feed on a character named Clay Cox. Feed on him, and then load the save and spare him to continue your pacifist run.

The second backup saves you’ll want to make in Chapter Six before you go into the sewers to face the final boss. Before you face the boss, you should collect the game’s collectibles, but don’t worry yet about turning the districts or collecting every weapon in the game just yet.

I would advise playing the game naturally without worrying too much about collectibles. Vampyr has a lot of exploration built into its experience, and just playing through will help you find a lot of them while enjoying the game as much as possible. After you defeat the final boss, you’ll reload the save file you made in Chapter Six, and then you can hunt down the last weapons you need while you get the last few trophies as well.

All in all, it is a relatively easy Platinum trophy that shouldn’t be too hard for you to get your hands on as long as you prepare yourself before boss fights and make the right decisions.

Pacifist Run

As you progress through Vampyr’s main quest, you’ll have to make numerous decisions that impact the story and your pacifist story. To make sure that you keep your pacifist standing, you’ll have to refrain from embracing anyone throughout the game. Also, make sure that you don’t kill the Vicar during Mary’s boss fight. However, this can make maintaining a decent level challenging since embracing gives you a ton of XP. If you are having a hard time keeping your level up for the boss fights throughout the game, here are the best ways to gather XP during your playthrough:

  • Explore as much as possible to discover locations
  • Gather collectibles (see Lore Keeper below)
  • Complete main quests and investigations
  • Discover hints
  • Defeat enemies that aren’t human

As you level up, you can build your character’s abilities however you wish, but there are some options you can pick to make your playthrough as painless as possible. These are:

  • Body Condition to get more health
  • Physical Prowess to get more stamina
  • Blood Barrier to help you soak a few hits in boss fights
  • Autophagy to recover your health
  • Abyss Ultimate for a high amount of damage
  • Big Thirst to get more blood from bites in combat
  • Medical Bag to have more healing items during boss fights

You’ll also want to upgrade your weapons as much as possible to keep yourself dealing as much damage as possible to end fights quickly. You can go with whatever weapon you like best, but I would recommend opting for a two-handed weapon like a Mace to keep your damage output as high as possible. These weapons also have very high stun, allowing you to stun enemies and bite them during fights to increase your health.

Collecting Weapons and Turning the Districts

Once you finish the game and reload your Chapter Six save, you’ll be able to start collecting every weapon in the game and turning all of the districts hostile. To do this, you’ll have to kill specific citizens to get their unique weapons, which should get most of the districts at least close to turning hostile. If killing the typical citizens is not enough to turn a district hostile, you can go back to the district and kill any remaining citizens you can find there. Just make sure to sleep after getting the weapons to see which districts turn hostile. The weapons and where you need to go to get them are below.

Vampyr is a very unique and exciting game that offers players a fun story and interesting mechanics to play around with. It also is not a very difficult Platinum to chase, and the journey to do so lets you experience everything the game has to offer, which is always lovely. The Pacifist run can be challenging to deal with because of how little experience it gives players. Still, it also lets you see the best possible results in the game’s story before you ransack the city to get the last few trophies, which is pretty satisfying in the end.


Question: How do you Get the Best Ending in Vampyr?

Answer: Thankfully, if you follow this guide, you’ll get the best ending, as it requires you to complete a pacifist run of the game.

Question: Is Vampyr and Easy Platinum?

Answer: Vampyr is a bit on the easy side of getting all of its trophies. Some of its boss fights can be challenging, but, overall, the combat isn’t too brutal, and everything outside of that is just exploration and making the correct decisions.

Question: Is Vampyr a Horror Game?

Answer: Vampyr does have horror elements since it deals with vampires and supernatural powers, but it isn’t focused on scaring the player. It does have tense moments and graphic imagery, but it is playable by those who usually avoid horror games.
