Space Punks: Full List of Characters

Here's your list of main characters for Space Punks.

Space Punks is a free-to-start action RPG (ARPG) and has four main characters. You can only choose one when you start the game and the other characters can be unlocked by collecting character shards from missions or by purchasing a Founders Pack from the Epic Store.

Each character has their own unique set of skills and talents so keep your playstyle in mind when picking your first character and as you unlock new ones. Your character will gain XP during missions that will raise your hero level and unlock skill upgrades. Every time you level up, you will also receive one skill point. Skill points are used to upgrade your character’s talent tree. There are three different paths you can take when starting a talent tree. 

The Survivor’s path focuses on improving damage reduction and branches off into health and shield-specific styles, which is more of a healing tank build. The Soldier’s path favors offense and branches off into ranged or melee-specific styles. The Scavenger’s path focuses on loot and branches off into movement and looting specific styles, which resembles more of a traditional rogue build.

Some skills will activate additional properties when playing co-op missions, called Synergy ability. This is based on the skill you use and the character(s) around you. For instance, when Bob uses his turret near Finn, Finn adds defense modifications to the turret. Each character has a primary, secondary, and team skill that is uniquely based on their abilities. They also all have a heavy hit skill which is a weapon-specific ability that adds damage power to your melee attacks.

Below you will find a list and breakdown of the four playable characters and their unique characteristics.  

1. Duke

Duke is more concerned about how cool he looks doing things than actually doing them. He has a ton of ambition, but lacks discipline. Duke is always looking for the next big thing, but doesn’t put in the effort. He had dreams of becoming a pilot…but flunked out of pilot school. He is the most well-rounded character of the group. He can’t take as much damage as the other characters, but he has a lot of speed and great defense.
