Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 offers you something which other Dragon Ball games have never offered: A chance to transform your character into any racial transformation in the Dragon Ball universe, ranging from the powerful Golden Frieza form to the fan-favorite Super Saiyan form!

Xenoverse 2 awakenings can be unlocked by completing the respective Time Rift Quests from your race. Additionally, you can acquire certain awakenings after finishing certain parallel quests. The five racial awakenings are:

  • Super Saiyan (Capsule Corp Time Rift)
  • Nimbus (Hercules House Time Rift)
  • Super Namekian (Guru’s House Time Rift)
  • Kid Buu (Bu’’s House Time Rift)
  • Golden Frieza (Frieza’s Spaceship Time Rift)

The Time Rift story mission consists of five side quests located at each Time Rift in Conton City. Every racial transformation offers a boost in your Ki gauge, stamina, and similar skills. Read this article to learn how to obtain the awoken skill of your race. 

How to unlock every Awoken skill in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2?

To unlock every awakening in Xenoverse 2, you have to complete the Time Rift side quests present at all five locations in Conton City. There is one time rift each at Capsule Corporation, Hercules House, Guru’s House, Majin Buu’s House, and Frieza’s spaceship. 

You can refer to the walkthrough for obtaining your racial transformation below.

1. Super Saiyan Awakening

Super Saiyan transformation can be obtained by choosing the Saiyan race during Character Creation and heading over to Capsule Corporation after finishing Saiyan Saga in story mode. 

Prove your strength to Vegeta when he challenges you to a fight. A green question mark will pop up over the Capsule Corp building to notify you regarding this event. Once you defeat him, he will challenge you once again and during one of your fights, mock you for being unable to unleash your true potential. 

Talk to Bulma and Trunks after this fight. Vegeta will take you to the Super Saiyan level after you talk with them. However, this is not the only transformation you will obtain. He will challenge you again and you will receive Super Vegeta Awakening as well.

2. Nimbus (Human Awakening)

Choose Earthling as your race in the beginning of the game and head over to the time rift in Hercule’s House to obtain Nimbus. Nimbus awakening grants you access to the flying cloud, Nimbus, and Power Pole ability.

Complete all the tasks given by the Great Saiyaman and the Great Saiyawoman at Hercule’s House. Start this quest as early as possible in the game, since the frequency of these tasks is quite low.

3. Super Namekian Awakening

Super Namekian Awakening can be unlocked by choosing Namekian as your race and completing the time rift side quest at Guru’s House at level 35.

Your task is to protect Dragon Balls at Guru’s House by defeating a certain number of characters and retrieving the required number of Dragon Balls before the time limit runs out. 

Try to collect them within the time limit or else you will be tasked with collecting Dragon Balls on Frieza’s Ship, which is a much more difficult task. Once you finish this task, you will unlock this transformation.
