Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains How to Unlock Story Character Customizations

Everything you need to know to unlock every customization in Attack on Titan.

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains lets you customize a character in world mode. If you want to look like a character from the story mode/anime, then you can do that as well! There are many hair, face, and clothing options available to you. Completing certain story mode missions unlock familiar options for your world mode character.

For more help with the game, check out my Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Beginner Tips and Tricks.

This guide will cover character customizations unlocked in Story Mode including:

  • Customization Description - Descriptions of what the parts mean.
  • Character Customization List - All the unlockable parts, separated by which story character you must play
  • Mission List - Which mission each unlockable is in.

Character Customizations

First, let me start by explaining the different things you can unlock in story mode.

  • Hair and Face - These let you change your world mode character's hair and/or face to the character listed.
  • Sets - These make your world mode character an exact copy of the character listed. You can still edit everything after choosing this option, it is more of a preset.
  • Special Weapon - These automatically give your world mode character the listed weapon. You won't have to buy it or anything, just equip it from the equipment screen.

Now, on to the list! Here's how to use this guide: Each list is under the character you must play to unlock the customizations. The left lists the customization and the right lists the mission you get it from.

Note: If you don't unlock a certain item, you may have to complete more story missions, first. I did all of the Eren and Mikasa missions before I started Armin's story missions.

    Some of these aren't unlocking for me. I've played and beaten "A Dim Light of Despair" on Armin, and I haven't unlocked either of those sets. Do I need to beat the level with an A+? I got a C on it.

    I see, well I did Armin's story after completing Eren and Mikasa so maybe the unlocks are based on missions completed, that would explain why I unlocked so many for Armin
