Zenless Zone Zero gives players a lot to do right from the start with many features, quests, and more. The game also rewards players with free characters to progress through the early game with ease.

While you can pull Agents from different banners, you can also unlock many free units without doing much. So, here’s how to get all of the free characters in ZZZ.

How to get Anby, Billy & Nicole

Players can get Anby, Billy, and Nicole by simply starting the game and playing through the first few objectives. These are the tutorial characters you unlock at the start and their kits are pretty straightforward so you can easily jump into ZZZ without any previous knowledge.

These characters are part of the permanent banner as well, so you can pull for them to unlock their Talents.

How to get Corin Wickes

Corin is one of the many pre-registration rewards, so all you have to do is go to the in-game Mailbox to claim her.

Rewards from redeemable codes also appear in your inbox.

To enter your Mailbox and claim this character, you can follow these steps:

  1. After launching Zenless Zone Zero, go to the main menu.
  2. Go to the “More” tab next to the Options button.
  3. Press the “Mail” button and look for the one titled “Global Pre-Registration Milestone Rewards.”
  4. Press the “Claim” button on the bottom corner of the message.

Unlike other HoYoverse titles, you don’t need to do anything special to unlock the Mailbox. Simply play a few minutes, and by the time you can check the Main Menu, you’ll be able to access it.

How to get Ben Bigger

Ben is the ultimate reward of the Rookie on the Road event, and you’ll get him after completing Chapter 2, Story 1. In other words, you just need to play the main campaign and you’ll unlock Ben in a couple of hours.
