How To Unlock All One Piece: Burning Blood Characters
At the game’s Western launch on May 31st, 2016, 42 characters will be available in the roster; 27 of which you’ll have to unlock by playing the game or by earning Beli in-game currency to then buy battle characters (and support characters) from the pirate base shop. Here’s how to get them all…
• Play Story Mode: Most characters (including Akainu, Kizaru, Aokiji, Whitebeard, Marco, Jozu, Buggy, Ivankov, Jimbei, Crocodile, Sengoku & Buggy) can be unlocked for free by beating all story levels and extra level** (side/bonus missions). Since the completed levels often relate to the unlockable character in question, which in turn makes them available for play.
**Note that you can check how to unlock a side/bonus mission before you play the main story missions by pressing the Triangle (PS4) / Y (Xbox One) button over any of the missions. Which will bring up a list that shows you how to unlock a side/bonus mission, and from there you play the side/bonus mission and unlock a new character.
The rest of the non-Marineford Arc related characters (like Law, Enel, Bartolomeo, Drake, Eustass Kid, Blackbeard & Burgess) you can only buy. They can more easily be unlocked with the following money-earning ways…
• Play Wanted Versus Mode: Wanted Mode lets you play versus characters of your choice that have a bounty on their head. Do well by trying to get an S-Rank to earn even more money. – The trick here is to use a character that can do infinite combos such as Dracule Mihawk by spamming the Square (PS4) / X (Xbox One) button with guard breaks and specials.
To execute an infinite combo with Mihawk press the following button combination repeatedly:
– On Xbox One: X, X, X, X, LB+Xx2, A+X, X, X, LB+Xx2, X, LB+A, X, X, X.
– On PS4: Square, Square, Square, Square, L1+Squarex2, X+Square, Square, Square, L1+Squarex2, Square, L1+X, Square, Square, Square.
• Play Free Battle Mode: First set the Free Battle options to Infinite Health & Gauge. Second set AI opponents to 5, so that you can do 3 VS 3 Melee battles between teams of 3 characters. Then start playing Free Battle to earn up to around 275,000 money per match if you execute unity chains and assists, which is not bad for only playing a few minutes per match without worrying about dying.
You’ll know you’ve succeeded in unlocking everyone when you unlock these Trophies / Achievements:

– “I’ve got allies!!!! — Unlock all battle characters.”
