New vector quarks appear in many beyond the Standard Model trying to
cancel the mass divergence for the Higgs boson. At the LHC such new
quarks can be produced singly or in pairs and, depending on their
decays, can originate several different final states. A topological
approach was followed by ATLAS, allowing to comprehensively cover such
final states in a model independent way. The status of these searches
will be reviewed, with emphasis on the complementarity between the
different analysis.
