How to get Sammy the Caterpillar in Vampire Survivors: Tides of the Foscari DLC

It's literally a caterpillar cake.

If you're from or have ever been to the UK, you'll no doubt recognize Sammy the Caterpillar as soon as you see it. Sammy is a Vampire Survivors character based on the iconic British Colin the Caterpillar cake that most children receive on their birthday at least once. And unlocking him in the Tides of the Foscari DLC is a piece of cake. Here's how to get Sammy the Caterpillar in Vampire Survivors.

How to unlock Sammy the Caterpillar in Vampire Survivors

You can only unlock Sammy the Caterpillar, you need to defeat 6,000 Sammy the Caterpillar enemies on the Lake Foscari stage. It is easy, but it can only be done in one specific area, so you could spend hours trying to find the location.

Choose your favorite character for the stage, and get to work. We'd recommend Queen Sigma because her ability to clear out enemy waves in mere milliseconds is unmatched, but if you don't have her yet, someone with wide AoE damage, like Dommario or Pugnala, also works well.

To find Sammy the Caterpillar enemies in Lake Foscari, upon loading into the stage, head northeast until you reach a maze entrance. To get through the maze, take the following turns:

Once on the other side, continue northeast alongside the edge of a small forest, walking into the wall of trees as you go.

At some point, you'll be able to take a hidden path through the trees, where you'll notice hundreds of Sammy the Caterpillar enemies begin to spawn. Simply stay here and let your character do the work until you kill 6,000 of them. There's no tracker that tells you when you've hit it, so take note of the number of enemy kills you have before you start so you know when it's done.

Best way to kill 6,000 Sammy the Caterpillars in Vampire Survivors

We found that the best way to wrack up the 6,000 kills quickly is to create big AoEs that kill the enemies as soon as they so much as touch them. Garlic, King Bible, and Song of Mana are great for this, especially if you can evolve them into Soul Eater, Unholy Vespers, and Mannajja.

If you've got a strong setup, you can increase your Curse to spawn even more caterpillars using Torrona's Box and the Skull O'Maniac passive items, making quick work of the 6,000 kills needed. Don't forget to choose the Wicked Season Arcana, too, as this also boosts your Curse at set intervals.

Once you've taken care of all 6,000, quit the stage, and a Vampire Survivors achievement will pop up on the stage summary screen, informing you that you've unlocked Sammy the Caterpillar for purchase as a playable character on the Character Selection screen.
