Ryan Gilliam (he/him) has worked at Polygon for nearly seven years. He primarily spends his time writing guides for massively popular games like Diablo 4 & Destiny 2.

Vampire Survivors is a relatively simple game at the outset, but as you play you’ll unlock some powerful bonuses and create some incredible weapons to help you survive those vampires. Arcanas are one of the game’s newest additions, and they can give you massive power boosts if you use them correctly.

In this guide, we’ll break down all of the Arcanas currently in the game and how you can unlock the system for permanent use.

How to unlock Arcanas

To unlock Arcanas, you’ll need to find the Randomazzo item in Gallo Tower. Like many of the other specialty, one-time-pickup items in Vampire Survivors, the Randomazzo is hard to miss. Load into Gallo Tower — the fourth map you’ll unlock in Vampire Survivors — and look for a green arrow on your screen.

Follow the arrow and you’ll eventually come across the Randomazzo. You’ll need to defeat the enemies surrounding it first, but then you can walk over it and pick it up. Once you have the Randomazzo you can either finish our quit out of your run — you’ll keep the item either way.

You’ll unlock your first Arcana — VI, Sarabande of Healing — for picking up the Randomazzo.

All Vampire Survivors Arcanas

You’ll select up to three Arcanas over the course of each Vampire Survivors’ run. You can choose the first one from your entire catalog of unlocked Arcanas. The other two Arcanas will come from chests later in the run. The chest Arcanas will only give you a small handful of upgrades to choose from, so you won’t be able to get every effect you want without a little luck.

Below is our Arcanas chart, updated for patch 0.5.2. There are currently only 10 Arcanas available to earn in Vampire Survivors, but the in-game menu has room for at least 22.
