Best Class in Vampire The Masquerade Bloodhunt

As you can see from the profile descriptions above, there’s not going to be one single class that is the “best” out of the gate.  It really depends on what your playstyle is.  If you prefer to play stealthy, you might want to select a character like the Prowler or Saboteur.  More offensive minded players may choose something like the Brute.  Those looking for more special powers could look to characters like the Enforcer.  However, there are perks that can be unlocked as well to balance out your characters as you progress.  It also depends on which game mode you are playing.  If you’re playing Bloodhunt with friends, you might want to take a complementary character that can help your team with support features like the Muse or Siren.

Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodhunt is now available and can be downloaded for free on Steam and PlayStation 5.
