Wargroove Commanders - How to Unlock New Arcade Commanders in Wargroove

Here's our guide on how to unlock new Commanders in Wargroove as easily as possible.

If you're looking to get going with the Arcade mode of Wargroove, you'll find that you only have Mercia to command at first. But you can unlock other characters, like Greenfinger and Ragna, and command troops available to them too. In this Wargroove Commanders guide, we'll be walking you through how to unlock new Commanders in Wargroove as easily as possible, which can be really rewarding if you're looking to play with new troops.

How to Unlock Wargroove Commanders in Arcade Mode

The plot of Wargroove follows the story of Mercia, the Queen of Cherrystone, as she is forced to flee her kingdom with few allies. As Mercia is the main protagonist of Wargroove, she’s the only Commander that you’ll have unlocked when you first go to play the Arcade mode of Wargroove, which is entirely separate from the single player campaign.

There are 12 total Commanders available in Wargroove’s Arcade mode, including Mercia. Just below, we’ll outline all the additional Commanders that we’ve unlocked so far for the Arcade mode, as well as detailing the steps that we took to actually unlock them.

How to Unlock Caesar

Caesar is the first available Commander to be unlocked in Arcade mode. Once you’ve completed the first mission of Act 2 in the campaign, which takes place in the Gloomwoods, you’ll have the first optional mission of the campaign available, called ‘Act 2, Side 1.’

If you can complete this Side 1 mission in the Gloomwoods, you’ll unlock Caesar as a Commander in Arcade mode. The Side 1 mission isn’t anything especially difficult, and sees Caesar and a group of soldiers assaulting a bandit’s fortress to free the prisoners within.

How to Unlock Greenfinger

To unlock Greenfinger as a Commander in the Arcade mode of Wargroove, you're going to have to undertake another optional mission. If you can complete 'Act 2, Side 2,' where Greenfinger goes to war with Sedge, then you can unlock the wisened character as a Commander.

How to Unlock Nuru

Nuru is a Commander under the orders of Greenfinger, who joins up with Mercia and Emeric pretty early on in the campaign. If you want to unlock Nuru as a Commander in Arcade mode, you're going to have to complete the 'Act 2, Side 3' mission called 'Making Friends' while you're in the Gloomwoods section of the campaign.

How to Unlock Ragna

In Act 3 of the Wargroove campaign, you'll have the first opportunity to play as Ragna. If you want to unlock this insane Commander for the Arcade mode, all you need to do is complete 'Act 3, Side 2' mission called 'Who is Caesar?' and you'll unlock Ragna.

As you can see above, all of the Commanders in Wargroove are key characters in the single player story of the game. The first Commander you’re probably going to unlock is Caesar, the loyal companion (and very good boy) of Queen Mercia, and you’ll unlock similar important characters that you know from the campaign.
