These are the four main playable characters in Redfall that you can choose from. Each hero has their own class, personality, skills, and abilities.
Two new heroes will later be added to the game as DLC which is included in the Bite Back Edition of the game.
Redfall Character Classes
You can define each of the playable heroes into these classes as they showcase these characteristics.
|Jacob||Recon, Pusher, Stealth|
|Layla||Agile, Shielder, Skirmisher|
|Remi||Tank, Support, Territorial|
Redfall Character Progression
You can level up your character as you play the game. This progress is always being saved regardless if you are playing solo or co-op. On that note; the Story is only saved for the host when playing co-op.
There isn’t a level cap announced but Game Designer Harvey Smith has mentioned level 40 in an interview.
While playing Redfall, you won’t be able to unlock every node in your Skill Tree for a single character. Meaning you have to make strategic decisions on where to spend your skill points on.
Redfall Character Abilities
Each hero has 2 special abilities and 1 ultimate ability that can be activated alongside each other. You don’t need to select a primary skill as all 3 skill will be available to you once you unlocked them.
|Blood Remnant||Main Mission “A Grave Situation”|
|God Remnant||Defeat First Vampire God|
You can select enhancements in your Skill Tree and upgrade them in a bunch of different ways. These upgrades do have level requirements and higher-tier skills cost more points in order to obtain them. You need to collect Blue Remnant Orbs to charge your ultimate skill.
|Tier 1 Upgrade||1 Skill Point||Ability Unlock Level|
|Tier 2 Upgrade||2 Skill Points||Underlying Tier 1 Skill|
|Ultimate Upgrade||3 Skill Points||All Tier 2 Skills|

Redfall Character Interaction
Redfall has a very dynamic dialogue system where the dialogue changes depending on which heroes play together. They will get to know one another and as that relationship is built their dialogue becomes more intimate. This eventually will let you unlock a game mechanic buff called the “Trust Buff”
