There is no denying that Redfall features a good amount of customization through the character’s skill tree. Each character has a skill tree that focuses on their three abilities — allowing players to upgrade these abilities to become more valuable and powerful. This guide will go over every skill found in the skill tree and the upgrade they provide.

Complete Redfall Skill Tree for Every Character

Below we have split up each character and gone into depth about their upgrades on the skill tree. First, the guide will review skills found on every character’s tree, and afterward, we will examine each character individually.

Unlockable Skill’s for Every Character’s Skill Tree

Every character in Redfall has a skill tree that focuses on their particular abilities, but some consistencies exist. The skills below are found on every character’s skill tree, mainly focusing on health regeneration and ammo capacity.

Devinder’s playstyle focuses on stunning and staggering enemies through his three abilities. Master these abilities, and you will have the best character in all of Redfall.

Devinder’s Arc Javelin Skill Tree

Devinder’s first ability is called Arc Javelin — where he launches a stake into the ground that deals high electricity damage while also stunning everyone nearby. Upgrade this to its full potential through the skills found in the tree listed below.

  • Shakedown – Enemies hit by an electrical pulse from the Arc Javelin have a chance to drop useful items.
  • Shock Lance – When the Arc Javelin hits an enemy it releases an immediate electrical pulse.
  • High Voltage – Electrical pulse range is increased.
  • Energize – You and any allies in range of the Arc Javelin deal additional electricity damage on firearm or melee attacks.
  • Just Physics – Any enemy hit by the Arc Javelin takes significant damage.
  • Power Surge – Each pulse of electricity deals more damage, and pulses happen more frequently.
  • Lightning Storm – When an enemy is hit by the electrical pulse an additional electrical bolt now chains to other enemies. Electrical pulse range and damage are increased, and Arc Javelin’s duration is improved.

Devinder’s Translocate Skill Tree

Devinder’s second ability is Translocate, where he can teleport around the map using a beacon. This can help escape battle quickly, and Translocate can become even more helpful through its skill tree.

  • Reverse Entropy – You and any allies who translocate heal over time effect for a few seconds, and all negative status effects stop.
  • Ion Exchange – When you translocate, enemies near the translocate beacon swap places with you.
  • Ambient Recharge – Translocate recharges faster.

  • Efficient Battery – Translocate terminals stay around longer.
  • Quantum Kerfuffle – Using Translocate now creates a decoy enemies will attack. Translocate lasts longer, and reverse entropy heals more.

Devinder’s Blacklight Skill Tree

Devinder’s final ability — the one I found to be the best in the game — will allow Devinder to summon a UV camera that stuns human enemies and turns Vampires into Rock. This can be made even stronger through its skill tree.

  • Light Therapy – You and allies in range of the Blacklight heal over time.
  • Photon Sharpening – Petrifcation from the Blacklight lasts longer.
  • Lumen Intensity – Increase the radius of Blacklight’s effects.

Other Unlockables in Devinder’s Skill Tree

Below you will find additional skills exclusive to Devinder’s skill tree.
