How to Access The Hunters Heirlooms DLC Items in Vampyr

In order to access the Hunters Heirlooms DLC items, you must first complete the main quest mission Eternal Thirst. This is the first mission in Vampyr and it involves hunting down a rogue vampire that is killing people. Once this mission is complete, you will be taken to the Pembrooke Hospital. On the second floor of the hospital is your office. In the office you will find a locker. Interact with the locker to receive all the items from The Hunters Heirlooms.


The Dragonbane weapon in Vampyr.

The Dragonbane is a one handed sword you can equip.

Damage: 75

Attack Speed: 10.0

Stamina: 20.0

Description: “This ancient sword with a Latin phrase engraved on the blade had been forged in Wales during the 6th century and belonged to Paulus Aurelianus, founder of the Brotherhood of Saint Paul’s Stole. Legend says he had this blade forged before he chose the path of exile and left England with his people. Dragonbane has been passed to each new Primate of the Brotherhood, and may have been used in secret ceremonies, when a Primate was sent on a path of war to defeat a hostile creature. The sacred sword was supposedly lost during the schism between the Brotherhood and the Guard of Priwen in the middle of the 19th century. It seems a few copies may have been made, but this is the true and original Dragonbane.”

It is a gun designed to quickly make many big holes in its target.
