If you’ve played the first Darkest Dungeon, than a lot of things might seem familiar to you in Darkest Dungeon 2. While developers have attempted to fine tune the game mechanics and systems, players will be able to see some familiar faces if they played the first game. From former enemies who are now caged pets you can attach to your stagecoach, to heroes of the past brought back anew. Focusing on the latter, this game has introduced 11 total heroes at the games release, with more planned to release later on. Some of these characters might have slight differences to their original counterparts, but one whose whole identity has been shifted around is the Bounty Hunter. Let’s take a look at this sword-for-hire, and figure out how to get Bounty Hunter in Darkest Dungeon 2.

A unique and interesting character, the Bounty Hunter is extremely different from the first game even down to the default name. As this hero was originally names Tardif in the first game. Unlocking him is fairly simple enough, recruiting him to your team however might be a bit tricky. In order to be able to hire the Bounty Hunter, you’ll need to travel to the Altar of Hope, where he can be unlocked for 4 Candles of Hope.

Once you have successfully unlocked the Bounty Hunter, his poster will have a chance to spawn at most Inns. We say most because what makes this character unique is that they only replace one of your current heroes until you reach the next Inn. And without Denial Confession, you will not be able to grab the Bounty Hunter at the Inn right before the Mountain. What makes this hero even more interesting is the fact that he doesn’t have any Hero Paths, and when hired will already have one random positive and negative quirk, along with one random trinket. So if you’re team is not doing so hot or some have even died, hiring this Bounty Hunter might be the difference between life and death.
