Alchemist

To unlock the Alchemist in For The King 2 you need to find the Lost Prison Cart in Chapter One. Read my full guide on How to unlock the Alchemist.

Farmer and Pathfinder

You will automatically unlock both the Pathfinder character and the Farmer when you complete Chapter One, The Resistance, for the first time. You simply need to finish the chapter. You do not need to complete the objectives.
