Five Beginner's tips to improve survival at Vampire Bloodhunt

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt gameplay provides strategic options for players to choose agility over precision. Every playable Archetype in-game offers unique abilities and traits, which grants you advantages in some situations while leaving your opponents in precarious spots.

It will take some time to adjust to this battle royale's gameplay style and mechanics, especially if you're accustomed to playing other battle royale games on the market. We'll be exploring some of the best beginner's tips to improve your chances of survival in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt.

Spawn near Antique or Tailor Stores

To survive in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt, you'll need powerful weapons, most of which you will find inside the Antique or Tailor stores. These stores are conveniently marked across the map, so locating them won't be an issue.

Katanas, one of the most high-damaging weapons in the game, can be found within Antique stores should you spawn in this location. This'll likely increase your chances of finding rare weapons that will give you an edge on the battlefield.

Take cover on the rooftops

Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt offers a vertical map, vastly different from notable battle royale and FPS games like PUBG or Call of Duty: Warzone. The game's vertical playground can give you an edge if you use it to your advantage, or it can infuriate you if you choose to neglect it.

Every Archetype can scale buildings with ease, and you'll probably find most players lurking above you, waiting to strike you from behind if you're caught casually strolling. We recommend sticking to the rooftops, especially if you're new to the game or an experienced battle royale player.

The rooftops allow you to inspect your surroundings better and avoid most surprise attacks, but they can provide cover for when you may need to heal. Furthermore, rooftops make for a good getaway when things eventually get out of hand.

Equip some really good armour

Armour provides you with an extra health bar and equipping one has the chance to turn the tides of battle in your favour. Combat encounters in Bloodhunt favour agility over precision, and other players will likely try and ambush you and start raining down bullets with a high fire rate weapon. 
Having armour equipped at all times will give you just enough time to make a quick exit before you die abruptly. Thus, prioritising equipping armour will allow you to overcome intense and bizarre situations.

Always carry an extra life

Dying once in the game doesn't mean it's game over, as you can get extra lives in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodhunt by biting certain civilians. You can do this multiple times in a session; we recommend carrying an extra life all the time to increase your chances of survival.

Scan the environment to avoid ambushes

Scanning highlights the loot, nearby civilians, and lurking players in your proximity. It's a handy tool that you should frequently use to avoid any surprise player encounters, keep tab off the civilians you may or may not need, and get the idea of the loot in the area.
