Here are all the free characters in Wuthering Waves that won’t require you to cough out your Astrites, including details on how to exactly get them.    

While most characters in a gacha game, including Wuthering Waves, can only ever be unlocked through the banner system, they do hand out freebies from time to time. Especially at the start, as you’ll need at least a few to form a party and get the game rolling. 

So, here are the characters you can obtain for free in Wuthering Waves.
