Back 4 Blood is Turtle Rock Studios’ newly released survival horror game, released on 12th October 2021. This game is considered the spiritual successor of Left 4 Dead. Currently, it is available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Play Station 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Back 4 Blood has eight characters- Holly, Walker, Doc, Mom, Evangelo, Karlee, Jim, and Hoffman. When you start the game for the first time, you can only choose between Mom, Holly, Walker, and Evangelo. But you can unlock the other four players by progressing through the game.
In this article, we’ll discuss how to unlock more characters in Back 4 Blood.
How to Unlock More Characters in Back 4 Blood
To unlock more characters in Back 4 Blood, you have to complete the first part of Act 1 that comes under the mission ‘The Devil’s Return.’ It has four levels and takes a few hours to complete the mission. ‘The Sound of Thunder’ is the fourth mission that you need to complete, and after that, you’ll be taken to the Fort Hope that serves as the central hub in Back 4 Blood.
After you arrive at this place, a cut scene will introduce the rest of the four characters- Doc, Karlee, Jim, and Hoffman to you. Once this introduction part is finished, you’ll find all the characters are now available; you can choose any of them to control. All the characters have their unique abilities. So, you can switch between them and choose the one you prefer. Doc is helpful when you take trauma damage; Hoffman’s passive is one of the most versatile in the game; Karlee can sense the traps and grabs; Jim is a good sniper who can accurately understand the enemy’s weakness.
Unlocking these characters is not a difficult thing. You can unlock them through playing the game; it doesn’t need any special activity to unlock these four characters. Once you start playing the game and start making progress, these characters will be automatically unlocked. Switching between characters is entirely optional; you can choose another character, or you can play with the character you have selected in the first place.
This process is pretty easy. But if you are facing any difficulties while trying to unlock these characters, you can take the help of this guide.
