Killing or Helping Citizens in Vampyr

A Guide and Walkthrough for Vampyr

In Vampyr, players have the choice to either kill or spare the citizens. This decision will determine the type of character they play – a bloodthirsty night creature or an angel in the body of a devil.

The game offers players the freedom to finish as a killer, hunter, or a good doctor who has control over their hunger. This chapter provides important information about these alternatives and lists the differences between them.

Killing or Helping NPCs in Vampyr

  1. Killing the inhabitants can make the game easier as Jonathan becomes stronger and gains more experience by sucking their blood.
  2. During dialogue, players must enchant the inhabitant, take them to a secluded location (indicated by the game), and perform the act of sucking to extract blood.
  3. Each inhabitant has a certain level of hypnotism required to put them into a trance. Jonathan can only extract blood from characters whose hypnotism level is less than or equal to his own. It is crucial not to kill the victims before the end of the game.
  4. Killing residents negatively affects the overall health of the district. A district can have several levels of health: Disinfected, Healthy, Stable, Serious, Critical, and Hostile. The death of citizens significantly deteriorates the district\’s health, and if the critical level is reached, the district will collapse, and enemies will appear.
  5. As players get to know the characters in the district better, they receive tips and hints about them. Each unblocked tip increases the experience level for blood sucking. Therefore, the best way to help others is to get to know them well, and if the NPCs are to be killed, wait until the end to extract their blood.
  6. It is possible to finish the game without killing citizens. Although it is more challenging, players can still complete the game successfully without sucking blood.
  7. Dead residents often leave their keys, granting access to their private belongings, which are often locked in crates or safes in their rooms.

Clay Cox – First Opportunity to Suck Blood

Players meet the injured Clay Cox when they reach Pembroke Hospital at the beginning of the game. The task is to transport him to a safe location. Players have the option to extract blood from Clay (killing him) or leave him alone. Sucking blood will strengthen Jonathan and make the game easier, but players will lose the opportunity to get tips for Cox, reducing the maximum experience potential available for this character. In short, it is better not to extract blood from characters like Cox at this moment and wait instead.


What are the consequences of killing citizens in Vampyr?

Killing citizens in Vampyr has a direct impact on the world of the game. As a vampire, the player character can feed on the blood of the citizens, but doing so has serious consequences. Firstly, killing citizens will lower the overall health of the district they were living in, leading to increased chaos and the potential for the district to be overrun by enemies. Secondly, killing citizens will also affect the relationships with other characters in the game. Certain characters will become hostile towards the player character if they discover that they have been killing citizens in their district.

Can you complete the game without killing any citizens?

Yes, it is possible to complete the game without killing any citizens. In fact, doing so will result in a different ending and unlock an achievement. However, it can be more challenging to avoid killing citizens, as the player character will need to rely on other sources of blood, such as rats or medical supplies. Additionally, the player will need to make careful choices about which characters to embrace and which to spare, as some characters may become more difficult to defeat if they become hostile towards the player character. Ultimately, the choice of whether or not to kill citizens in Vampyr is up to the player and will affect the outcome of the game.
