Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was released a few days ago, and thousands of players are playing it as we speak. The game is definitely one of the best Dragon Ball games out there, as it features the biggest roster of characters yet.
The game features characters from the entire universe of Dragon Ball. From the list of characters from the anime, to the list of characters from Dragon Ball movies, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has it all. However, the majority of characters are locked when you start the game. So you will have to unlock them by performing various tasks and completing different quests.
Unlocking characters can be a big headache, especially when you don’t know how to. However, iDigitalTimes was kind enough to create a guide through which players can unlock characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 easily. So without any further due, here are the three ways which can help you in unlocking characters.
By Playing The Campaign
The easiest way to unlock characters is by playing the campaign. As you make progress through it, you will unlock different characters. Not only this, but you will also get move-sets and costumes for the characters you unlock as you progress through the campaign.
As for unlocking, you will most probably unlock every character you face in the campaign. For example, when you will play the Saiyan Saga, you will face Raditz, Nappa, and Vegeta. And once you defeat these three characters, you will unlock them. Similarly, playing through the Frieza Saga will give you access to Zarbon, Dodoria, Frieza and some more. So yes, it would be a wise choice to finish the campaign first if you are eagerly waiting to get your hands on some characters which are locked.
By Making A Dragon Ball Wish
Another way to unlock characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is by making a wish by using Dragon Balls. To make a wish, you will have to collect all seven dragon balls. Once you collect them, all you have to do now is head towards Shenron, make a wish and choose “I want more usable Characters”.
Currently, there are only four characters that can be unlocked by making a wish through the Dragon Balls. Hit, Ice, Nova and Omega Shenron. So you will get one of these four characters after making a wish to Shenron.
By Completing Parallel Quests
As compared to the previous two methods, this one is the hardest and the most time-consuming method to unlock characters in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. However, certain characters can only be unlocked by completing Parallel Quests, otherwise, we wouldn’t have listed this method here. What you have to do is complete the 100 Parallel Quests in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 to unlock various characters. By completing them, you can unlock Super Vegito and Super Saiyan Gogeta.
To unlock Super Vegito, you will have to complete parallel quest #91. In it, you will have to defeat Goku, then clear with Raditz and Nappa, and then finally defeat Vegito. After you defeat him, he will be unlocked.
To unlock Super Saiyan Gogeta, you have to complete parallel quest #81. In it, you have to defeat each and every enemy you face, clear in 8 minutes and then finally defeat Gogeta to unlock him. So you will have to do at least 90 Parallel Quests in order to unlock these two characters. However, one thing to keep in mind here is that both of these are ultimately strong characters, so all the hard work will be worth it.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 was released on October 25, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One, and on October 27, 2016 for the PC.
