Back 4 Blood features eight characters, also known as Cleaners, for players to choose from. Each character has their own unique traits to aid in battle. However, at the start of the game, only four characters are unlocked: Evangelo, Walker, Holly, and Mom.
How to unlock characters in Back 4 Blood
To gain access to the four unlockable characters Doc, Hoffman, Jim, and Karlee players will first need to complete the entirety of Act One.
Act One consists of four different levels Resurgence, Tunnel of Blood, Pain Train, and The Crossing. It may take a few hours to complete this, but once done players will be shown a cutscene introducing the new characters.
Unlocking more characters in Back 4 Blood is super easy. Just play through the campaign with other players and you’ll unlock Doc, Hoffman, Jim, and Karlee once you complete the Crossing. Take a moment to acquaint yourself with these new additions, as they each offer unique differences that will aid your team in some way.

The full roster of Cleaners in Back 4 Blood includes Evangelo, Walker, Holly, Mom, Doc, Hoffman, Jim, and Karlee. In the future, there could be more Cleaners introduced, and if so, they’ll likely be tied to in-game events or DLC, which means earning them will differ from the current roster.
