Vampyr Walkthrough and Guide

Vampyr Walkthrough and Guide

Achievements

A taste for blood

Completion:
Complete the game–side missions don’t have to be completed.

Anarchy in the UK

Completion:
Turn a district to hostile status.

This will happen if everyone and the Pillar of a district is killed off, or (maybe?) just the Pillar themselves. If you plan on doing this, it’s possible you’ll miss out on side missions, and you won’t be getting the achievement for Not even once.

At dawn we row

Completion:
Take a ride with Dr. Swansea.

This is an automatic achievement.

Bloody Roots

Completion:
Find the recollection of Paulus Aurelianus.

Bury the hatchet

Completion:
Defeat McCullum.

This is an automatic achievement after defeating McCullum in chapter 5.

Death on stage

Completion:
Defeat Doris.

Defeat the beast

Completion:
Defeat Fergal.

This is an automatic achievement. You’ll acquire it after defeating Fergal in chapter 3.

From here to eternity

Completion:
Go to a safehouse and rest.

This is an automatic achievement. You get it during the Prologue portion of the game, after you lay on the bed and rest.

Hail Mary

Defeat Mary.

This is an automatic achievement. It’s acquired after you defeat Mary in chapter 3.

Hippocratic Oath

Heal 10 citizens.

Open the menu of a district and find the people who have developed some kind of sickness. Cure them with the correct antidote, and after done ten times, you’ll get this achievement.

Decide Dorothy’s fate.

This is an automatic achievement. You get it by deciding Dorothy’s fate in chapter 2.

Just take a bite

Completion:
Choose ‘Embrace’ upon first meeting Clay Cox.

This is an automatic achievement. As it says above, you’ll need to Embrace Clay the first time it prompts you to embrace him or release him. Just know you’ll lose any side missions he has in the future, and extra EXP.

Keep your distance

Completion:
Find all ranged weapons.

Ranged weapons can appear in the outside world, through vendor purchases, and through the death of civilians. Note that if you kill civilians, you’ll lose out on the achievement Not even once, and any side missions they may have.

Walkthrough

Tips for the Prologue?

  • Dodge isn’t all that helpful at this point in time, but you can still probably avoid most gunshots with it.
  • Don’t forget to lock on your targets. It makes combat a good bit easier.
  • Autophagy is a good skill to continuously level up, due to it being able to heal you at the cost of blood.
  • As for skills:
    • Claws is for close combat, so if you like to get close into the action, this might be for you.
    • Bloodspear isn’t something I’ve tried. You throw the spear through enemies, so it may suit ranged players.
    • Shadow Mist can be either close range or distant combat, but note that the enemies can move out of the mist, before it’s leveled properly.

Prologue

  1. Follow the blood trail and sink your fangs into the civilian.
  2. Run straight, following the path laid out for you until you jump down into an alleyway.
  3. There’s a dead person up ahead with a machete sticking out of them; take it.
  4. Kill the first enemy up ahead. There’s a few more as you continue forward.
  5. Open the door.
  6. Along the path, kill the enemy, and then head through the door of an abandoned house.
    • The photograph will initiate a flashback.
    • Collectible: Fire and Sun — found on the first floor.
    • The pocket watch of the dead woman will initiate a flashback.
  7. Go upstairs and approach the man to obtain a used revolver.
    • There’s a Bloody diary you can read on the desk by the bed.
  8. Interact with the bed and shoot yourself.
    • Achievement earned: From here to eternity.
  9. Follow the on-screen direction and choose one of the three skill: Claws, Bloodspear, or Shadow Mist.

Chapter 1, Part 1: Eternal Thirst

  1. Go downstairs, then through the door. Teleport when prompted.
  2. Downstairs is a body with a used stake. Take it and leave.
  3. Turn right and kill the enemytip.
  4. Jump off the ledge and kill three enemies. A fourth will show up from inside the building.
  5. Go into the building that leads to Southwark Bridge and keep following the direct routetip.
  6. After the eventual cutscene, follow the blood into the tavern.
    • At the second blood spatter, teleport up and to the left for a hideout.
    • Jump down and check the trash can for a letter.
  7. Head upstairs in the tavern and approach the door.
    • It doesn’t matter your dialogue choice.
  8. Back downstairs, talk to the woman.
    • “I want the truth” ⇢ “Tell me about him.”
  9. Talk to the barkeep.
    • “Tell me about William.” ⇢ “I need to find him.”
  10. Leave and go right to reach the docks; examine everything in the boat to the left.
  11. Turn left and teleport across the water; follow the blood trail and sneak attack the enemy.
    • You can loot the ammunition crate the enemy was by.
    • Collectible: New practices, new tactics — Found on the corpse against the pillar.
    • Teleport up on the balcony for an enemy to kill and a used lupara.
  12. Leave and teleport up on the balcony for your second hideout.
  13. Go across the bridge and follow the route until you come across a used scythe stuck in the wall.
  14. Through the gate is a boss fight.

William Bishop

  • This fight is pretty easy, but you can still die if you’re not careful.
    • Learn how to dodge, and dodge his lunging jump moves. You’ll learn later that it sucks when bad guys get the jump on you.
    • I used the scythe as the two-handed weapon in order to parry him when he physically attacks me. This takes some proper timing to do perfectly, in order for the stun to take effect.
    • Bite does a good amount of damage, so use it whenever possible.
    • When you’re getting low on health, use your Autophagy skill to use your own blood and heal your HP.
  1. After you’ve won, you’ll acquire a bludgeon.
  2. Talk to the guy sitting on the floor for a cutscene.
  3. Loot the blood sample from William’s corpse, then board the boat.
    1. Achievement earned: At dawn we row.
