Henchmen and Backup are NPCs that can be summoned by the Player Character via their Lair's Mainframe to support them in combat. Lair System access is necessary to use these Trinkets.

Henchmen and Backup act in a similar manner to Pets and will stay with the Player for 50 seconds before being subjected to a 3-and-a-half minute cool-down period, after which they can be summoned again.


Appearance and Upgrades[]

Henchmen and Backup can be upgraded via the Mainframe, with each upgrade allowing the NPC to be more effective in supporting the player in combat.

Trivia[]

  • The Base Amenity: Sparring Target takes on the appearance of the Henchmen/Backup associated with the lair it is positioned within.
  • Prior to game update 47 there were 5 possible levels for your Backup/Henchmen. Levels 1 and 2 are unchanged, but previously level 3 only summoned a 3rd reinforcement. Level 4 added the ability for the reinforcements to fly and level 5 was the same as level 3, today.
  • Originally there had been a clear distinction between Backup for heroes and Henchmen for villains. With the advent of loot drops and vendor items of this kind, now most are in the Henchmen category only.
