How to Defeat the Vampire Survivors Green Reaper

Recently updated on May 26th, 2022 at 07:23 pm

Many Vampire Survivors players have been frustrated by the green reaper that randomly spawns on Dairy Plant. He appears to not take damage and will instantly kill players. But that’s not true! Here’s a quick guide on how to defeat the green reaper in Vampire Survivors (as well as what you get if you can do it):

How to defeat the Vampire Survivors Green Reaper

The green reaper can be destroyed with the help of a map wipe or significant damage. We’ve listed out the three primary ways that can happen, along with a caveat additional option.


This map wipe will destroy all creatures, the green reaper included. If you find a rosary, and there’s also a green reaper chasing you, be sure to grab it to wipe the map and gain all of that nice experience.


Choosing this weapon, just like the Rosary, will wipe the map (along with the green reaper). The caveat here, unfortunately is (unless the item has been upgraded) there’s always a chance that the experience will be wiped on the map as well. Definitely something to think about before choosing Pentagram as one of your main weapons.

Mine cart

Throughout the Dairy Plant map, there are mine carts trickled throughout. It’s very satisfying when you line up a big group of enemies on the track and wipe them all out at once. Similarly, if you line it up right and the mine cart runs over the green reaper, it’ll get taken out in the process.

Run away

This isn’t necessarily “defeating” the green reaper, so I mention it with a grain of salt. But, if you avoid the green reaper for 1-2 minutes, it will de-spawn. So, if you don’t find a Rosary, have the Pentagram weapon, and are unsuccessful at lining up the mine cart, you can rest assured that the green reaper will go away in a minute or so.

The award for defeating the Green Reaper in Vampire Survivors
