How to Unlock All Free Characters in Honkai: Star Rail

Honkai: Star Rail is a popular game that uses the same pull mechanic as Genshin Impact when acquiring playable characters. While this system can be fun, much of it comes down to luck and even sometimes requires real-world money if you are looking for a rarer character. The good news is that Honkai: Star Rail offers eight free characters available for players! This guide will go over all eight free characters and how to unlock them in-game.

Below are all the free characters currently available for Honkai: Star Rail and how to unlock each. Next to their name you will also see the character type.

  • Serval (Erudition, Lightning) – Can be obtained after completing the quest “A Moment of Piece.” This activity falls under the first Trailblaze mission.

Some free characters can be created into extremely powerful builds — through Light Cones, Relics, and Team Composition. To help out in that regard, we have build guides ready to go to give you a headstart in the process. Check out how to create the best Asta build, the most substantial Serval build, the top Natasha build, and the best Trailblazer build! Moving these builds even further can be done through the ascending mechanic, which increases the level cap of your characters.
