Character Customization

Character Customization

Heads

There are two kinds of character customization (visual, at least) in the game, one of which is changing how your character’s head looks. You can get these in a variety of ways, such as a reward for finishing a mission or as a drop from a specific enemy. Each character in the game will come with three default heads, while the rest of them will be either unlocked by doing something in-game, or they can be purchased as DLC.
