Players can accumulate lieutenants in various ways. They can be purchased when they are needed for a job, can be obtained from crates, purchased from the Black Market, or as a daily reward, from scratchers, and can be rewards from challenge jobs or boss fights.
They are initially 1 star. Higher star levels are made by combining identical lower star level lieutenants, so two 1-star lieutenants can be combined into one 2-star lieutenant, two 2-star lieutenants can be combined into one 3-star lieutenant, etc. The maximum star level is 9 (which would require 256 1-star lieutenants). There are Achievements that can be earned by combining lieutenants in this way.
|Total Lieutenants (Combined/Fusion)||1||2||4||8||16||32||64||128||256|
A player can place up to five of their lieutenants into their inner circle. Doing so gives various bonuses depending on which lieutenants occupy which seats.
There's a comparison table on the wiki at Lieutenants Table and a table of lieutenants by faction and Rarity at Lieutenants Faction Rarity Table. Vote for your favorite at Top 10 list:Favorite Lieutenants!
