How Sgt. Calhoun joined the Tourney
In the sci-fi battle zone of Hero's Duty, Sergeant Calhoun is more than just a pretty face—she is the tough-as-nails, take-charge leader who fights for humanity's freedom. When she's not offering in-game intel, she's training her troops for the next attack wave. This unrelenting commander is driven by a personal vendetta and will stop at nothing to protect the player and the arcade from a virulent Cy-Bug invasion.
How to Unlock
The player must complete one of the following requirements to unlock Calhoun:
- Play 909 matches in the Versus Mode.
- Using either Alisa or Xiaoyu, finish Classic Mode without continuing.
For both of these options, the player must brawl Calhoun on the Hero's Duty stage. After defeating Calhoun, the announcer will say "Someone else has joined the Tourney!" after a Smash Ball appears on the lower-right corner of the screen with a message saying "You can now use Sgt. Tamora Jean Calhoun, from Hero's Duty! This powerful and pretty young lady will defeat anyone in her way! Lets see if she can defeat you!". You will then see her to the left of Lobo, to the right of Sun Shangxiang, below Mr. Freeze, and on the very bottom of the Character Select Screen.
Character Select Screen Animation
Calhoun cocks her gun and points it at the zooming in camera as she asks "What's the first rule of Hero's Duty?!".
Blast Attack (Neutral)
Calhoun takes out an assault rifle and shoots it at the opponent. It's in burst mode meaning it can fire three shots. Pressing B rapidly can have the sergeant fire more shots before she has to reload.
Sniper Rifle (Side)
Calhoun takes out her sniper rifle and shoots a shot at the opponent. The shot causes the rifle to recoil after each shot. When 10 rounds are used, Calhoun has to reload.
High Jump (Up)
Calhoun does a high jump.
Calhoun takes out a claymore mine, activates it and sets it up. She can set up to three claymore before the opponent steps on one. If stepped on, the mine detonates, blowing the opponent away.
Grenade Launcher (Hyper Smash)
Calhoun shoots up to 12 grenades from the foreground, 18% damage each.
Helicopter Support (FInal Smash)
Calhoun radios, "Give me chopper support ASAP!" then a Russian Havoc chopper appears in the background to assist Calhoun. The chopper uses miniguns to deal damage deadlier than a regular machine gun. It can also use missile launchers to shoot rockets that can blast his opponent away. After 30 seconds, the chopper flies off while Calhoun says, "Good shooting. I can handle the rest!"
