Before going into the details of the procedure on how to unlock Ultra Instinct on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 , I think it may interest you to know more about this possibility.
Well, the title of Bandai Namco allows you to obtain for your Temporal Patrol , or the “protagonist”, the techniques related to Ultra Instinct, from the Divine Vision to the Divine Kamehameha , passing through the Sublime Fist .
However, basically it is not possible to obtain the true Ultra Instinct state. The latter can in fact only be reached with the character Goku (Ultra Instinct) , linked to a special paid DLC .
However, if you have the PC version of the game, you can get Ultra Instinct status through the use of a community-created mod . In case you are interested, however, I invite you to use it only for offline fun and remove it when you want to go online.
In fact, the game rightly uses an anti-cheat system , which does not allow users to go online with mods activated. I also take no responsibility for any issues with your account as a result of using community-created content, as developers could potentially take action.
In short, think carefully before using the mods . If you want some advice, from my point of view it’s not worth taking advantage of community-created content for Ultra Instinct, as these mods are of lower quality than what the base game offers.
Moreover, even if used offline, these contents are always controversial, as they are installing, albeit without bad intentions, features not included in the base game.
The discussion around the world of mods has been active for many years, between those who argue that there is no problem as long as, as in this case, they are used offline only for fun and those who say to avoid them.
It is also not clear what the developers think about it, but I can imagine that they do not recommend the use of this content made by the community. In any case, the world of mods created with passion by fans of the game is certainly interesting to explore and therefore worth treating.
Obviously, I do not recommend using mods on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 . The information contained in this post is therefore to be considered for informational purposes only and I do not take any responsibility for their possible uses.
In any case, if you want to be sure not to run into problems, the advice is to follow the first part of the guide, in which you simply play the title of Bandai Namco to get the techniques of Ultra Instinct and Goku (Ultra Instinct) without mod.
How to unlock Ultra Instinct in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
After explaining the general situation to you, I would say that it is time to take action and unlock Ultra Instinct within the game. Below you will find all the relevant information.
How to unlock Goku Ultra Instinct in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 (DLC)
Let’s start with the official solution that allows you to get Goku (Ultra Instinct) within the game without going through “tricks” or mods.
This is the purchase of the additional content (DLC) called Extra DLC Pack 2 . The latter usually costs € 9.99 and also includes the character Goku (Ultra Instinct).
You can purchase and download the DLC from major digital stores : PlayStation Store on PS4 / PS5, Microsoft Store on Xbox consoles, Nintendo eShop on Switch and Steam on PC. Each platform has its own system for completing the payment . If you want to learn more, you can refer to my tutorials on how to pay on PlayStation Store and how Steam works .
In any case, having this character is the only way to have the true Ultra Instinct status within Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. For more details on the DLC, you can refer to the official Bandai Namco website .
How to unlock Ultra Instinct on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 without mod
If you are not planning to buy the official DLC for the moment, in this part of the guide I will show you how to get the Ultra Instinct skills for your Time Patrol . More precisely, I am referring to Divine Kamehameha , Sublime Fist and Divine Vision .
These techniques can be unlocked from your Time Patrol even if you only have the base game without DLC . In fact, just buy them from the PT medal shop , which is located in the main area of the game (“lobby”).
The latter unlocks shortly after completing the prologue, so you can potentially purchase skills related to Ultra Instinct even if you’re just starting out. However, you will need PT Medals , which can be obtained simply by playing the Bandai Namco title.
In fact, the latter are obtained as a reward , for example by choosing the option I want medals from the Shenron dragon or simply by completing the various missions proposed by the game.
However, it may take some time to reach the required PT medals for the skills, as Divine Kamehameha costs 300 PT medals , Divine Vision costs 500 PT medals, and Sublime Fist costs 300 PT medals . In short, in total you need 1,100 PT Medals.
But beware: as you know if you’ve been playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for a while, the PT Medal Shop isn’t always open . This means that you may not find the skills I have listed for sale.
In that case, you might therefore consider putting a “trick” in place. However, I do not take any responsibility for possible problems with your account, as you are gaining skills designed only for certain promotional periods.
In any case, the “trick” is to disconnect your computer or console from the Internet so that the game does not connect to the servers, set the system date to September 10, 2020 and go to the PT Medal Shop .
By doing so, you should be able to easily acquire the skills of your interest. Once done, just save your game , revert to the current date and play as before. Many players claim to have managed to get the skills without any problems this way and I can confirm to you that setting the date of September 10, 2020 makes the skills available.
In any case, by purchasing the aforementioned techniques from the PT Medal Shop you will be able to obtain the main skills of Ultra Instinct. As for the Ultra Instinct state, however, unfortunately not much can be done without DLC or mods.
Mod to unlock Ultra Instinct on Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
If you are one of those who are used to playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 on PC , you might consider using a specific mod to get Ultra Instinct status .
I have already explained in the preliminary chapter that this could potentially lead to problems, so before moving on, I invite you to inform yourself well on the matter and think about it .
If you have decided to proceed, the mod to download is called Goku (Ultra Instinct) (Pride Trooper) and is made by the user Pride Troopers. The latter, in simple terms, adds the character Goku (Ultra Instinct) recreated by the community to the game .
To start downloading the mod, just connect to the XenoverseMod website and click first on the orange DOWNLOAD button on the right and then on the blue DOWNLOAD button . You may need to close some advertisements. In any case, doing so will result in a file called Goku (Ultra Instinct) .zip .
At this point, you need the XV2 Mods Installer program , designed to install the mods. To download it, just connect to the AnimeGameMods portal , click on the link here and click on the Download button . By doing so, you will get the XV2INS.zip file .
Then, connect to this other page of the AnimeGameMods site and click on the link here present near the xv2patcher writing : this is another tool needed to use the mods. Then press the Download button and wait to get the xv2patcher_ [version] .zip file .
Now you just need to extract the ZIP file linked to xv2patcher in any folder and move / copy the bin and XV2PATCHER folders to the one where the game is installed (usually the path is steamapps/common/DB Xenoverse 2/bin).
Next, extract the XV2INS ZIP file you downloaded earlier, launch the xv2ins.exe file , press the Browse button (three dots icon), select the DBXV2.exe file (usually the path is steamapps/common/DB Xenoverse 2/bin) and click the OK button .
In this way, the program window to install the mods will appear on the screen. Extract , therefore, the ZIP file Goku (Ultra Instinct) that you downloaded previously in any folder and press the + button at the top left. Now, select the Goku (Ultra Instinct) (No Z-Soul Ver) .x2m file and press the Install all of them in a new slot button .
Wait, therefore, for the tool to install the mod and press the OK button . If everything has been done correctly, you will notice the appearance of a line called Goku (Ultra Instinct) . Perfect, now it’s time to have fun.
At this point, to actually be able to use the mod, you need to play offline . If you don’t know how to disconnect your computer from the Internet connection, I recommend that you follow my guide on how to disconnect the device from Wi-Fi (or just remove the Ethernet cable, if you are connected by cable).
Once the computer is disconnected, go to the path steamapps/common/DB Xenoverse 2/binand start the DBXV2.exe file . If everything has been done correctly, messages will appear on the screen indicating that you are offline and therefore cannot access certain features.
Once you’re in the game, just go to the Offline Parallel Missions area and choose to start one.
This will take you to the character selection screen . Going to the far right you will find Goku (Ultra Instinct) , added by the mod. Just select the latter to use it and put it to the test.
I advise you not to finish the mission either , as you would increase your stats with a character added by a mod. However, you can have fun with his moves , if only to see what the fans have created, and then exit the mission .
In any case, this Goku (Ultra Instinct) is obviously a community created character . This means that it has nothing to do with the one present in the DLC. In any case, it could be a fun content to have a laugh in an afternoon with friends.
For the rest, if you want to go back to playing online and start Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 as it should, you can uninstall the mod by starting the xv2ins.exe file , selecting everything and pressing the X icon . This way, you will uninstall all the extra items you added for fun.
After that, once you have connected your device to the Internet again, it is good to go to the game folder and remove the bin and XV2PATCHER folders .
Subsequently, you can start Steam , select with the right mouse button Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 from the library, click on the Properties item , move to the LOCAL FILE tab of the window that opens and press the Verify integrity of game files button .
By doing so, everything will be fixed and you can return to playing Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 safely online.
