As players begin their time with Aliens: Fireteam Elite, they will have the opportunity to create their own custom Colonial Marines. Fans are not beholden to the characters that they make right out of the gate, though, as it is indeed possible to change their appearance. For those players that may be confused about that process, this guide contains full details on exactly how to change the appearance of a Colonial Marine in Aliens: Fireteam Elite.

How to Change Appearance in Aliens: Fireteam Elite

To get right to it, players that are interested in changing how their character in Aliens: Fireteam Elite looks should begin by navigating to the Loadout menu. Near the bottom of this menu, fans will see an “Appearance” section, and the last option within it is to “Change Base Appearance.” Players should click on that option upon locating it in order to be taken directly to the “Change Appearance” menu.

With respect to the opportunities for customization that can be found in this menu, a player can alter their character’s archetype, face, skin tone, eye color, hair style, and hair color. Additionally, Aliens fans can adjust their Colonial Marines’ voices in this menu, and while that is not exactly an appearance change, some players may still be interested in pursuing this option. Notably, fans should make sure to press “Save Changes” when they have finished making their alterations to prevent losing any of their work.

Coming up with a desirable character appearance is not the only way that a player can customize their experience in this new co-op shooter, though, as there are several classes in Aliens: Fireteam Elite to choose from. Initially, fans will have access to four classes, the Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, and Doc, and they each have their own unique playstyles. This means that class has a dramatic effect on gameplay, and players should spend some time zeroing in on the one that suits them best.

To mention, there is actually a fifth class in the game, and it is the Recon. This class primarily plays a support role, deploying different drones that provide buffs to allies and debuffs to enemies, and some fans will undoubtedly be interested in giving it a try. However, players must complete the main campaign in order to unlock the Recon class in Aliens: Fireteam Elite, though it should only take a handful of hours for fans to fulfill that requirement.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X.
