Having a full set of these makes your runs much more manageable, which is why knowing how to unlock all the Relics in Vampire Survivors is such vital intel for any aspiring monster slayer.
Read on for a full guide on how to find the Relics in each stage, as well as their specific locations and functions.
Vampire Survivors: Steps on how to unlock all Relics
The majority of Relics in Vampire Survivors behave in the same way: when you enter a stage with a Relic, a green arrow will appear, pointing you towards its location. You can follow the arrow, pick up the Relic, and voila! Job done. Some Relics, however, require a more involved process to unlock, demanding more from you as a player to track them down.
The list below gives a full breakdown of every Relic in the game, along with the function it serves, and the stage it appears in. If there are steps involved beyond simply following the green arrow, those steps are detailed in the ‘Where to Find’ column on the right.
