LEGO Marvel's Avengers: Character Unlock Guide
LEGO games have always been heavy on options and unlocks, but this time, they have really outdone themselves – LEGO’s Marvel Avengers has over a hundred unique characters to unlock, including, of course, all the fan favorites from the films, but also featuring some really obscure, interesting, and jokey side characters, if you’re willing to hunt for them. It would be way too difficult to list all of the characters you can find in LEGO’s Marvel Avengers, but here’s a quick and dirty guide to the characters that are a little harder to find:
Note: You still need studs to unlock characters once you’ve found their tokens, and some (like Ultron and Loki) of them are pricey. Make sure you’re racking up those modifiers and saving for the heroes you want!
Character Unlocks (by hub)
All non-story characters are unlocked in free-play at the game’s major hubs. Tokens unlocked through missions involve finding or speaking to the character in question and performing a quest for them (this often involves taking selfies). They’re usually not too challenging, but they can sometimes be tricky to pull off. Discovered tokens are often locked behind a puzzle or hidden away from the main part of the zone. Make sure you’re checking everywhere!
