How to get Kate Bishop in Marvel’s Avengers

Marvel’s Avengers has just gotten its first new character: Kate Bishop. This serves as the first of many characters that will be added for free over time to extend the game’s longevity. Bishop is known as the protégé of Clint Barton, better known as Hawkeye — and uses many long-range attacks, thanks to her bow. Square Enix has announced that Barton will also be added as a playable character later down the road, but for now, you can enjoy Kate Bishop for free.

The game doesn’t specifically tell you how to start playing as Bishop, and she’s not available right away. Before you can start playing as this iteration of Hawkeye, you’ll need to complete a few objectives. In this guide, we’ll walk you through everything you’ll need to start playing as the game’s new character. Here’s how to get Kate Bishop in Marvel’s Avengers.

How to play as Kate Bishop

As soon as you boot up the game and download the latest update, you’ll find a new Operation on the main menu labeled Taking AIM. Select this, and you’ll begin a new quest that will eventually unlock Kate Bishop.

After the intro cutscene, head to the War Table and select the Shield Substation Outpost found in the Pacific Northwest.

Go to each mission marker while talking to NPCs in this area, and eventually, you’ll be able to boot up the War Table again to start the Masks campaign mission — again found in the Pacific Northwest. Boot it up, and you’ll be sent on a mission where you must defeat a slew of enemies that eventually lead to Bishop. It’s recommended to be around power level 30 for this mission since it gets pretty tough.

Defeat all the enemies and follow the mission objectives until you reach the Lockdown segment that requires you to capture various points and defend them from enemies. After this, you’ll be instructed to “rush to the hangar,” where you’ll meet Kate Bishop and fight alongside her. Take out the robots in this room, and the mission will end.

After that, you’ll unlock Kate Bishop, and you’ll be able to start the Young Avenger campaign mission that dives into the character’s backstory.

Keep in mind, Kate Bishop will start off at level one and will need to be leveled up just like you did with your other Avengers heroes. Being a version of Hawkeye, it’s no surprise that Bishop excels with a bow and is best used at long range. However, she does have some close quarters melee attacks that you’ll want to try out because they can be quite effective. From here, just make sure you follow all of the prompts until you finish the Taking AIM set of missions. Just like the other characters, Bishop will have her own Challenge Card, which will reward you with goodies as you level up.
