BloodRayne 2, like the first, is back again, this time ReVamped! Ported over by Ziggurat, now a whole new generation of players can experience Rayne's second tale, taking place 60 years after the first. The second carries over everything that was loved from the first but with slicker graphics and (somewhat) better controls. It is very much a sequel that stayed true to its source and the game is just as linear and story-focused as the previous one was. This time, you continue Rayne's story as she goes on a vendetta, hunting for all of her deceased father's other children, i.e. her half-siblings, in an effort to destroy the entire family tree the way her father, Kagan, did to her mother and her mother's family. Before long, though, you realize that it's no longer just about revenge but now the world is in your hands and you have to save it from your own kin.
Among the aesthetic improvements, 2 expanded on the series by adding platforming and killing puzzles to complement the hacking-and-slashing. It's a very fun game but can be quite hard and challenging at times, especially for certain big fights. As with the first, even if you've never played either BloodRayne before, if you're a fan of cult classics, B-movie camp or vampires in general, you'll still have a great time.
GLITCH NOTE: The 100% might be unobtainable for some people, if not all. Nowhere you can hide , which is for finding all 18 Vampire Lairs, is glitched. If you don't get it normally once you find all 18 Lairs, once you finish the game and you've done all the other trophies, you'll have to delete your game and save and start again until you reach Lair #16 in Act 8, Kagan's Tower: Media Center. (See thread here: LINK) However, although we have reports of a couple people succeeding with this method, many have not and the trophy remains at 0% so it is highly likely that the 100% is unobtainable. In addition, the same thing is happening with the Ferrill boss fight trophy Amateur Electrician on PS5; it seems to work fine on PS4, though.
Unlike the first game in the series, BloodRayne 2 has a lot of puzzles that are necessary to progress with the story and the levels. Most of the time, these puzzles are either spelled out for you or are easy enough to figure out when using Aura Vision but once in a while it can be hard to know what to do next without a Walkthrough. To that end, I have a full playlist of BloodRayne 2 Walkthrough videos (Playlist: LINK), a Video Walkthrough of All Puzzles, as well as a full Text Walkthrough Supplement. Most of these puzzles generally involve using your Harpoon Toss to throw enemies into or at things, such as into a furnace or at a wall to break it down. Your Aura Vision is really the key in this game and will help you tremendously so keeping it active is generally preferred.
Even though BloodRayne 2 doesn't have difficulty levels or trophies, that doesn't mean that this game is going to be that much easier. Honestly, the reason it doesn't have those is probably because it's hard enough on its own. A lot of the game is definitely easy enough and the list as far as trophies go is decently easy but it is the many fights and minibosses in between these trophies that are the real difficulty here. Perhaps 70% of the game is around a 4/10 easy level and 30% is somewhere more like 7/10 and the latter 30% is where a large chunk of your playtime is going to be found. Even though your save file might say your play time has been for example 8-10 hours, your true playtime is likely to be at least another few hours longer as it doesn't count deaths and lost time since it resets to the previous Checkpoint. Here the boss fights aren't real fights but rather puzzles. It is the miniboss encounters that will give you more of a typical boss fight-like experience and are likely harder than several main boss "fights", particularly from Act 5 until the end of Act 8/end of the game.
SAVING: This game does not allow you to save whenever you want. Instead, the game offers a Save only when moving between Acts or locations so this means you can go nearly an hour in between saves, depending on where you are. There are Checkpoints that will trigger throughout that you will return to if you die but if you quit the game, you will return to the last Save you made, not the last Checkpoint.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
1: In almost all instances, feeding is the quickest way to kill enemies and even some mini bosses. This is probably Tip #1 you need to know and remember.
2: There is a move list accessible from the Pause Menu and it can be very helpful to learn certain combos and evasive maneuvers.
3: Using back-Feed + + will give you the most amount of rage of any fatality or attack; doing it on an enemy with full health will almost entirely fill your Rage bar from empty.
4: Using Rayne's dodge and evasive maneuvers are critical to a successful playthrough and one with far fewer deaths. With heavy weapon-wielding enemies, target them and jump over ( + and holding the joystick direction together). The best dodge however for any fight is her quick spin around where she cartwheels from their front to their back in super-speed. ( + while holding the R joystick to either right or left).
5: Always turn both joysticks (Rayne + camera) while feeding so that the person you are feeding on acts as a body shield against any enemies, whether they're shooting or hitting you.
6: Although the game says to use Kicks () to disarm heavy weapons, that takes way too long and needs more than one full combo most of the time. Instead, target enemies with your Harpoon (+) to disarm them. You don’t even need to toss them anywhere; just one touch of the harpoon instantly disarms them and drops them to the floor.
7: When you toss someone to the floor, target them with and press for a one-hit kill while they're on the ground.
STEP ONE – Play the game!
Very simply, play the game. This is pretty much the only step you need! This time around there aren't any difficulty levels or difficulty trophies and all but a couple trophies are story-related and unmissable and the rest can be cleaned up later if needed. If you don't want to clean up later, the only real thing that you need to keep track of are the Vampire Lairs (see Nowhere you can hide ). There are 18 in total throughout the game and most are fairly obvious if you use your Aura Vision often but there are a few hidden in nooks and crannies that could be easy to miss.
Other than that, just make sure you use your Feeding Fatalities often, cycling through the different ones so you've done each at least once if not more and wherever possible, use the environment to kill enemies. Throw them off balconies, into fireplaces, onto sharp statues or fences etc. If there are any enemies near you while grinding on a rail, use your blades (Hold ) to kill them for Carnage kills. As long as you're doing these things throughout your playthrough, you should not need any clean-up step or second playthrough.
If you ever get lost or you want a Walkthrough to follow along, as the trophies are really only for the bosses, see our BloodRayne 2: ReVamped ~ Complete Game Walkthrough Supplement.
By the end of this step, you will have earned:
Go for the Heart
Pound of Flesh
Armed and Dangerous
Full Blooded Vampire
Nowhere you can hide
STEP TWO – Clean up (Optional)
If you missed any Vampire Lairs, now is the time to backtrack using Chapter Select and discover them. If you were following this guide or our Walkthrough, this step is unnecessary.
STEP THREE – Delete both your game & save file. Start a new playthrough and play again until you reach Lair #16 (Optional, if Nowhere you can hide Glitched & Didn't Pop)
The Vampire Lair #16 in Act 8 Kagan's Tower: Media Center is glitched for some reason. After you finish getting all 18, if the trophy didn't pop for you, once you finish the game you'll need to delete the game and your save, reinstall and start again and you'll have to play until you reach that Lair again which is sadly at the end of the game. Doing it on New Game+ does not work as it continues off of the previous glitched save. Unfortunately this method is not guaranteed to work; there have been reports of it working but there have also been many people who did this and still did not get it.
