Nintendo Switch players are enjoying a treat from Marvel and Nintendo right now in the form of Ultimate Alliance 3. The game features a plethora of characters which you get access to throughout the game. Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 features many team options and here we will explain how you can change your team members. Moreover, we will discuss when can you change your team.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 Team Guide – How and When to Change Team Members

When you start the game you will only have access to a select few characters but you will get access to X-Men and The Avengers soon. At the beginning players can only access Guardians of the Galaxy members Gamora, Drax, Groot. and Rocket Racoon.

How to Change Your Team Members

As I said, there are only the Guardians of the Galaxy at the start of the game. However, as you progress you unlock different characters. Once you are able to unlock a few characters you can swap them out and create your own Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 team. Keep in mind that you can only have four members in your party so select wisely.

You can swap your teammates by using the Shield checkpoints. There are white Shield checkpoints placed on the ground in hub areas and at the beginning and middle of the missions. Select “Team” and swap out heroes you want.

When Can You Change Your Team Members

You can use Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket before you unlock others. You need to progress to the point where you first meet Nick Fury at the Raft. This is the point that unlocks your ability to change team members. After this point, you can change your team whenever you are near a Shield Point. You can find these Shield points spread throughout the game but you will always find one before a boss fight and before the beginning of a mission.
