Vampire Survivors 0.7.3 Has A Secret Character (It’s A Tree)

A large magical tree with fruits stands tall while being attacked by brown monsters.

I haven’t played much vampire survivors, but I know that moving, dodging enemies and running are key parts of the game. So it’s a bit strange that the surprise hit’s newest secret character, just added in its latest beta update, is a fruit tree that doesn’t move. But don’t be fooled: this tree is surprisingly good at killing shit.

TThe popular Castlevania-like retro-inspired shoot ’em up, vampire survivorshas received a beta update on Steam. Anyone can opt into the public beta branch of the game to test upcoming features and changes, such as the latest update to the hit indie game, 0.7.3. This update adds new weapons, arcana, and some characters.

One of these new playable survivors is… *checks notes twice* uh… a tree. It is not just any tree, but a magical one yielding some nice-looking fruit.

The actual name of the tree is Peppino. and like trees in real life, it doesn’t move. However, unlike trees in real life (well, at least in my neck of the woods), Peppino can use spells, abilities, and items to fight off waves of enemies. He also has the ability to absorb nearby gems when they drop. So all this means is that the tree remains stationary in the middle of the map surrounded by a large circular aura that kills most things when they get too close.

Before you can play as this new secret tree, you will need to unlock it. To do that, you will first have to “Use Celestial Dusting to heal the plants in Il Molise for a total of 100,000 HP”. If you don’t know what that means or how to do it, hello don’t worry as people online are already uploading easy-to-follow tutorials that guide you through the process. It looks like it’s a dog. Interesting!

If you still have to try vampire survivors, the game recently came to Game Pass. It’s only $3 on Steam, but saving money is saving money. I get it.
