With the help of our Into the Breach Pilots Guide, you’ll be able to learn how to unlock all 14 pilots, understand their special abilities, and choose the one that complements your playstyle. At the very start of your journey, you’ll have automatic access to a pilot named Ralph Karlsson. As for others, you’ll have to unlock them first. This guide will teach you how.

Into the Breach Pilots

Each and every pilot in Into the Breach comes with a special ability, which makes them what they are… special. As a general rule of thumb, you should experiment with different pilots and stick to the one that complements your unique playstyle. Since pilots can make or break the game, it’s paramount that you pay extra attention when it comes to choosing them.

In the following section of the guide, I’ve discussed a couple of methods that you can use in order to unlock pilots in Into the Breach. I’ve also provided a neat, little cheat at the end that you can use in order to unlock all available squads and pilots from the get-go.

How To Unlock Pilots?

The first and ideal way of unlocking new pilots is by keeping your ears and eyes open for pod crashes near you. During the course of the game, you’ll continue to learn about pod crashes, promoting you to investigate them. What you essentially need to do is to protect these pods from harm and land on them to check their bearings.

Alternatively, you can simply progress through the game as you see fit and you’ll eventually have enough Corporate Reputation to acquire new upgrades, etc. Do bear in mind that pursuing optional objectives and no-error runs will net you increased amount of Corporate Reputation.

Time Traveler

If you’ve been reading the guide from the start, you’ll know that I said 14 pilots at the beginning. This is because you’re free to take The Last Traveler with you. Having additional perks and XP, The Last Traveler is just a better version of your pilot from the previous run. In this section of our Into the Breach Pilots Guide, I’ve detailed all the pilots and their special abilities.

How To Unlock All Pilots And Squads?

In order to automatically unlock all pilots and squads, you need to head to the following directory:

c:\users\UserName\Documents\My Games\Into the Breach

Once there, you need to open the folder with your profile name and edit ‘profile.lua’ using Notepad++. You should be able to download and install Notepad++ pretty easily. Once you’ve opened it up, you need to copy/paste the following commands in line #9 and line #11 respectively:

[“squads”] = {true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, true, },

[“pilots”] = {“Pilot_Original”, “Pilot_Soldier”, “Pilot_Youth”, “Pilot_Warrior”, “Pilot_Aquatic”, “Pilot_Medic”, “Pilot_Hotshot”, “Pilot_Genius”, “Pilot_Miner”, “Pilot_Recycler”, “Pilot_Assassin”, “Pilot_Leader”, “Pilot_Repairman”, “Pilot_Mantis”, “Pilot_Rock”, “Pilot_Zoltan”, },

Now simply save and close the file, start the game, and you should be able to see all the pilots and squads unlocked for you.
