Agents Of Mayhem Complete Character Guide

You may only start with three Agents Of Mayhem, but it won't take long to unlock a total of 14 characters who all want to unleash a hail of gunfire and explosions!

Shifting away from the main Saints Row series, the re-imagined alternate universe in Agents Of Mayhem lets you unleash destruction with a whole new cast of characters (and one returning fan favorite).

As of launch, there are 14 possible characters to swap out in your squad, with two currently only available for those who pre-ordered. Below we cover each and every character, how they are unlocked, and what devastating upgrades you can use!
