Unlocking the Sword of Victory
The 0.11.0 patch for Vampire survivors it included a new overwhelmed character called Queen Sigma. Along with Queen Sigma, a new weapon was added to the game that served as the starting weapon - Victory Sword. At first glance, the Victory Sword doesn't seem like a weapon to include in a list of the best Vampire Survivors.
However, first looks can be wrong. Victory Sword starts out relatively weak, but at level 12 this weapon will defeat large groups of enemies with every hit. This weapon can also be evolved into Sole Solution if the player has Torrona's Box.
Unlocking the Sword of Victory
Queen Sigma starts with the Victory Sword, but after unlocking the weapon, it can be offered to any character during a run. The first step to getting this weapon is to unlock Queen Sigma. For first-time players, unlocking Queen Sigma could take days of racing. This is why the player must complete the game collection to unlock Sigma.
After completing the Collection and unlocking Sigma, the player must then get 100.000 enemy kills during a run with Sigma. This isn't easy. To make things a little easier, the player should choose the Crazy forest or the phases of the inlaid Library for this ride. These stages have a 30-minute timer and are slightly more manageable than the other stages. Get the Passive item Skull O'Maniac it will help to reach 100.000 kills by increasing the number of enemies on the screen; make sure Sigma can handle the extra enemies before leveling up Skull O'Maniac.
The player will want to get the Torrona's Box passive item to evolve Victory Sword. While it's normally wise to banish this item at level nine, Torrona's box must be at level nine for Victory Sword to evolve into Sole Solution. This will also increase the number of enemies on screen. With Victory Sword, Santa Water, King Bible, Magic Wand, Song of Mana, and Laurel, along with their associated passive items, the player should have no problem reaching 100.000 kills.
Using the sword of victory is the only solution
Victory Sword starts off weak. That said, it's still a decent starting weapon and an excellent ancillary option. As this weapon levels up, it will start hitting more enemies per attack. Damage also increases at certain levels and these increases do Victory Sword one of the best weapons in terms of damage per second.
At level eight Victory Sword gains a finishing move that hits every five attacks; this is seen as a vertical column of energy. Level eight is also when critical hits are possible with Victory Sword. Drowner, Stalker, and Trickster enemies are immune to most Vampire Survivors base weapons. Victory Sword and Sole Solution are among the few weapons that can damage them.
Sole Solution does not replace Victory Sword when it is evolved. The player retains Victory Sword as well as gaining Sole Solution, making this a unique evolution. Luckily, the player doesn't need to keep an open weapon slot for Sole Solution as it is added to the inventory as an extra passive item.
Victory Sword scales with the following passive items:
- Candelabro (Area)
- clover (luck)
- Doubler (amount)
- Empty Tome (Cooldown Time)
- Silver Ring (Area and Duration)
- Spinach (may)
- Nougat box.
The unique solution only balances with spinach. The best arcana to use with Victory Sword and Sole Solution are Slash, Beginning and Divine Bloodline. Sole Solution summons a rotating galaxy (for a few seconds) that damages all enemies on screen. The player is intangible while the galaxy is on screen. The player can pick up items while they are intangible, but their effect is delayed until the galaxy dissipates.
