Reid can wield improvised melee weapons, such as a saw, as well as ranged weapons including the Webley Revolver. He will fight against other vampires like him—aristocrats who go by the name of Ekon; sewer-dwelling vampires known as Skals; the Vulkod—a stronger breed of vampire resembling werewolves; Nemrod—vampires who hunt their own kind; and the Guard of Priwen—a secret society of vampire slayers. Reid is adaptable to other vampire features, like the claws of a Vulkod. Weapon improvement through crafting is made possible by looting items from the bodies of victims. While using vampiric powers in combat, the character’s health and energy drains. This forces him to feed so he can immediately replenish his strength. With the vitality attained from killing a human being, he is able to boil the blood of his enemies and cast blood spears. Reid uses his control of shadows to hide himself and to strike at his opponents. He can utilise “Spring” to scale locations otherwise out of reach and charge more rapidly across gaps, which once upgraded can do damage on impact and grant temporary invincibility. Rushing forward at unusual momentum may be deployed to avoid combat altogether.
