How to Unlock Android 21, Goku (SSGSS) and Vegeta (SSGSS) in Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ Android 21

If you’re looking to pickup Dragon Ball FighterZ this Friday, you’re going to want to maximise the number of characters available to you as soon as possible, right? Here’s how.

How to Unlock Android 21

To unlock Android 21 you need to complete Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s story mode. That means making your way through all three of its story arcs. If you’re playing though the game quite meticulously – taking on all secondary battles and the like – it’ll probably take you about 15 hours. Make a bee-line for the boss on each of the game’s maps that you’re thrown onto, however, and you might do it in about 10. It’ll be harder though, as your characters won’t be levelled up as much.

How to Unlock Vegeta (SSGSS) and Goku (SSGSS)

The Easy Way

To unlock Goku (SSGSS) and Vegeta (SSGSS) you have multiple options. Firstly, simply pre-ordering Dragon Ball FighterZ allows you to unlock them early, and so does buying the FighterZ or Ultimate edition of the game. If you’re planning on buying the standard version on or after launch, however, you’ll have to do more legwork to unlock them.

The Hard Way

The quickest way to unlock them is via Arcade mode, but it’s no easy task. You need to complete the Extreme Gravity Spaceship Course (which is 5 battles) with an overall A rank on Hard difficulty for Vegeta (SSGSS), and for Goku (SSGSS) you’ll need to complete the Hyperbolic Time Chamber Course (which is 7 battles) with an overall A rank on Hard difficulty. To unlock hard difficulty for each course, you simply need to complete them once.

The Long Way

Getting an A rank on either of those courses on Hard is indeed a difficult task, but if you’re not up for it there’s an easier way to unlock Vegeta (SSGSS) and Goku (SSGSS): simply earn Zeni.

Zeni is Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s in-game currency, and by earning 300,000 you’ll unlock Vegeta (SSGSS) for use. Goku (SSGSS), on the other hand, requires 500,000. Still, at least it means that you’ll eventually be able to play as these bonus characters if you can’t do it via Arcade mode.
