Get more covers of your favorite characters! Select your favorite characters in your Roster, and every time you open a pack you will have a chance to get a bonus cover for one of the characters that you have chosen.
What Characters Can I Get From a Bonus Hero Pull?
You can get 3-Star, 4-Star, and 5-Star characters from Bonus Heroes. Whenever you draw a Bonus Hero, you will get one of the characters you chose as your favorite character in that rarity. For example, if you draw a 4-Star character and get a Bonus Hero, you will receive one of your favorite 4-Star characters. These odds are split between selected Heroes, so if you have 3 3-Star Bonus Heroes selected you will have a 1 in 3 chance of each of those characters. This means that you should only select the characters you are looking for, in order to ensure that you get more Bonus Heroes of the ones you want.
Where are Bonus Heroes Available?
Bonus Heroes are available in any cover store, except for Vaults. Each single cover pack has a 5% chance to get a Bonus Hero. Each draw from a 10x and 40x cover pack has an 8% chance to get a Bonus Hero. Every time you pull a 3-Star from a Standard Pack, you are guaranteed to get a 3-Star Bonus Hero.
What Characters are Available?
3-Star, 4-Star, and 5-Star characters are all eligible to be selected as Bonus Heroes. New characters have a time limit from when they are released before they are available to be chosen. 3-Star and 4-Star characters have the New tag until the season after they are launched. 5-Star Characters will have the New tag until they have been in the game for two weeks. Limited characters, like Howard the Duck and Devil Dinosaur are excluded from Bonus Heroes.
How Do I Favorite Characters?
You can toggle favorite characters by tapping the heart icon on the character cover in the Roster screen, or when viewing a character cover in the Roster screen. Characters you've not yet added to your Roster will appear as faded covers, but you can still choose your favorites among them.
Can I change my Favorite Characters?
Yes! You can change your favorite characters at any time.
What if I do not choose any Favorite Characters?
If you get a Bonus Hero, and you have not chosen a Favorite character within that rarity, you will receive a random character from that rarity as your Bonus Hero.
For example, if you get Wolverine (X-Force) from a pack and it triggers a Bonus Hero, but you have no 4-Stars favorited, then you would receive a random 4-Star character that’s available to be favorited.
When do I unlock Bonus Heroes?
Bonus Heroes becomes available once a player reaches S.H.I.E.L.D. Rank 8.
