Reroll Guide for Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad - How to Unlock the Best Operators From the Very Beginning
Ubisoft’s latest gacha game is focused around the Tom Clancy tactical shooter series of games, bringing characters from many different franchises such as Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, HAWX, and others, allowing players to recruit these operators and create high-performance teams that can deploy and eliminate enemy threats all around the globe. This is the definitive mobile game for fans of the Tom Clancy games as there are lots of operators and countless team compositions to create.
However, while each character in the game has its own strengths and weaknesses, some of them are inherently better than others, in general. In this sense, some operators could be good at specific tasks or within a certain team composition, while others can shine bright on their own due to the superior skillset or unique stats. Unfortunately, Elite Squad has a gacha summoning system, which means that in order to unlock new operators, you always rely on a randomized roll, which means that you’ll never know what you’re going to get. For obvious reasons, this can really complicate unlocking some of the most powerful characters, which are often the rarest of them all.
Luckily, there’s a method through which you can easily summon the best characters in Elite Squad from the very beginning. This can help you immensely in getting a headstart in the game’s story missions as having one or two good operators can make a huge difference. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to obtain the best characters in the game from day 1.
What is Rerolling and How Can it Help Me?
The method for unlocking the best characters in Elite Squad (and in most gacha games) is called “rerolling”. The process consists of simply starting a new game, advancing to the point where the player can perform the first summoning or bulk summoning (which is usually free), and then restarting the game if the summoned characters are bad.
While the exact duration of the process varies from game to game, as some of them have tutorials of varying lengths and may or may not require grinding in order to purchase the first summoning, the purpose is always the same: Performing as many summonings as possible within the same period, and hopefully to unlock a good character or two. While we can’t directly manipulate the summoning rates for pulling the best operators, we can at least make it so that you can perform more summonings in the same period.
How to Reroll in Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad
Luckily, rerolling in this game is quite simple and only takes a few minutes. To reroll in Elite Squad, please follow these steps:
- Start a new game, but DO NOT link your progress to any of your social media accounts or Google Play yet.
- Advance in the main story, finish the tutorial, and get to the point where you perform your first random summoning.
- If you’re not happy with the results, you can reset your game simply by uninstalling the app and downloading it once again.
- Once you summon a good character, remember to bind your account to Google Play so you don’t lose your progress and operators if you run into any issues and need to reinstall.
We can’t stress this enough: Please remember to bind your account once you’ve summoned a good operator. We’ve lost count of the times when we’ve had to reinstall a game, only to find that we’ve lost our progress and our hard-earned characters!
Speed Up Your Rerolls With BlueStacks
Now, rerolling the classic way is fine, but if you’re playing Elite Squad on PC with BlueStacks, you can significantly speed up the process via our Instance Manager and Multi-Instance Sync tools.
The Instance Manager is a tool that allows you to create multiple BlueStacks instances and access the same game on multiple windows at the same time. This is useful for many purposes but, in the case of gacha games, it allows you to reroll on multiple accounts simultaneously. However, if this is the case, you’d have to progress on several instances individually in order to actually reroll on every account.
This is exactly where the Multi-Instance Sync feature comes in.
This tool allows you to synchronize the actions you perform in one instance across all other active windows. In other words, once you activate the Sync feature, all clicks, swipes, key presses, and other actions you do in your main window will be mirrored in your other instances. This is pretty useful for rerolling as you can progress on multiple accounts without the hassle of having to micromanage and progress in each window separately.
A good method for using both these tools in tandem is:
- Create as many instances as your PC can handle (Protip: Use Eco-Mode to reduce resource consumption and create more instances).
- Download Elite Squad on each, and run the game on all your instances.
- Once you’re in the main title screen on all instances, go to your main instance, open the Multi-Instance Sync feature, and activate it on all your instances.
- Play as you normally would in your main instance, and watch as BlueStacks replicates your actions across all other windows.
With this method, you’ll be able to reroll with 3, 4, or even more accounts, simply by playing on your main account as usual. As we said; while we can’t directly manipulate the summoning rates, our tools allow you to reroll much faster. Just remember that, once you actually get a good character, you need to bind the lucky account to Google Play to safeguard your progress. Afterward, you can close all your other instances, and simply continue playing on the account in which you pulled good characters.
With BlueStacks, you can easily unlock the best operators in Elite Squad from the very beginning, and all it takes is a few minutes of setting up multiple instances. But as you’ll quickly find out after seeing your powerful characters easily defeating your enemies, it’ll be well worth the hassle.
