How to unlock all Battleborn heroes

Battleborn - how to unlock heroes

UPDATE: With the winter update all 25 heroes are unlocked at the start of the game once you complete the tutorial level. (This is now part of the full retail upgrade)

UPDATE: With the Summer Update the Trial Version of Battleborn became available. All 30 heroes can be unlocked with in-game credits in the command menu. Each week there will be a free rotation of heroes.

Battleborn has a wide range of playable characters to choose from. At launch the game will have 25 heroes and more will be added as downloadable content in the future. To prevent the players from overwhelming with this amount of  characters in the roster Gearbox has locked away some heroes. Also some heroes have a bigger learning curve then others. Learning a new game and mastering a complex character might be too much. Battleborn heroes can be unlocked by playing the game, each hero has its own goals to achieve in order to get access to them. This can be getting a specific rank or completing a challenge.  You start the game off with 7 unique heroes, these provide you a  easy to learn set of heroes to dive into the game.

DLC Heroes

The other Battleborn heroes that were added as free DLC have a different requirement in order to unlock them. If you have the season pass, that is also part of the digital deluxe edition, you will receive a hero key. With this key you can unlock any character that you haven’t unlocked yet. If you unlock one of the standard 25 heroes that are part of the base game you will get your hero key back once you completed the hero’s requirement. If you use the hero key on the additional heroes you will lose that key. If you don’t have any hero keys you can unlock these by buying them with in-game credits. These credits are earned by simply playing the game.

    I did Ambra’s challange but it still has a lock on it saying I need to get to rank 14

    • sorry to hear that, did you try log out and back into the game. its possible that the server needs to catch up.

      • Aaronphieagles

        I think it was just a bug because it’s still in beta since I dint unlock her until rank 14

  • Alex Perala

    I think PlayStation 4 is getting a little more bonuses than it should!

  • Slif_One

    After playing all characters during open beta and settling on Deande as my main, I’ll be playing through the story and completing the Heliophage on advanced just to unlock her.
    But my question is this: Do you know if you will have to complete the previous mission on advanced to be able to play advanced on the next mission? i.e. If I complete The Algorithm on normal, will I only be able to play The Void’s Edge on normal until I complete the Algorithm on advanced? Advanced isn’t a problem for me but I’d rather take the fast track if that’s an option.
