Here is a guide on how to unlock the second special character found in the game.
Here’s how to do it
To unlock missingNo you got to kill death, no joke
As you probably already know death can’t be killed, so you need to be a filthy cheater and modify the damage of an item to get to the 30 minute mark and kill him.
So you first need to get to the game’s root folder, if you don’t know where this is the path looks like this Steam\steamapps\common\Vampire Survivors
then you got to find the file with the source code in it, main.bundle.js. Navigate to resources -> app -> .webpack -> renderer and the file is going to be there.
Full path: Steam\steamapps\common\Vampire Survivors\resources\app\.webpack\renderer
Edit the file with a text editor and you need to find in the code your preferred item, in my case it is Garlic because Garlic is awesome. Press ctrl+f and type the weapon you want followed by .png for example (garlic.png). Now you need to find where in the code the power of garlic is set and change the number to the desired power
Take a note of the initial power just so you can revert it back after you are done with killing death, save the file, open the game find the item (choosing a character that starts with said item works too) wait for the 30 minute mark to hit and one shot death. Now you might notice that the game isn’t over yet, no ♥♥♥♥ you are supposed to lose. So quit the run and on character select you will be able to buy death for 1100 gold (I think I can’t remember)
Oh and don’t forget to change the power value back or uninstall and reinstall the game both revert the power of the item back to normal.
Thanks for reading
Edit: You are better off searching the line with weapon.png instead of just weapon
