Vampire Survivors Death - how to kill the boss
Death appears on the main maps from 30 minutes onward, and will spawn again for every minute until it kills you. It deals 65,535 damage with every hit, often killing players instantly. You are awarded 500 gold for getting killed by death, and more for every subsequent death if you happen to have revivals.
Death has a health pool 655,350 times the player's level when it spawns. This means, the more you level up, the stronger they will be. They have -50% knockback resistance, meaning they are pushed towards you on knockback.
If you want to take them out, your best choice is to grab the rings and Metaglio on the map. Grab Metaglio Left and Right and combine it with Laurel. This will give you Crimson Shroud - capable of capping damage to just 10. This makes Death significantly easier.
From here, grab Silver Ring, Gold Ring, and Clock Lancet. Combined they will evolve into Infinite Corridor, a weapon capable of halving an enemy's health. Get both the Crimson Shroud and Infinite Corridor, alongside some weapons that deal high damage, to take down Death. You will eventually take them down if you're patient.
What happens if you kill death in Vampire Survivors?
Killing Death with the previous evolutions will grant you 5 Golden Eggs and will spawn in White Death. White Death is totally unkillable, and slowly moves towards the player, killing them instantly. You cannot outrun it. This is essentially the end. It seems likely even more bosses will come with the next year of updates - or at least we hope!
Now that we're waiting for the next major update, you may be looking for something else to try out. Luckily, there are tonnes of free games worth giving a go! Check out our Genshin Impact tier list, AFK Arena tier list, and YuGiOh Master Duel decks tier list. They'll keep you busy.
