Reaching the Guardian rank, Cole will be able to unlock the lowest rank of good power upgrades. The citizens of Empire City will begin to widely accept him. The Guardian rank will automatically be achieved in the mission "First Glimpse" if Cole lets the citizens get their fair share of the food crates.

Cole at Guardian Rank in Infamous 2.

Reaching the Guardian rank, Cole will be able to unlock the lowest rank of good powers. In addition, he unlocks the Civilian Safety boost in which civilians take little to no damage from Cole's powers. The citizens of New Marais will begin to accept him. This Karmic rank can be unlocked in the first mission "Breaking into New Marais", by choosing to lower the bridge without overcharging the generator, or by importing your good trophy set from Infamous.


Cole's appearance remains the same, but slightly cleaner. He will keep wearing his ordinary yellow and black T-shirt, and he will maintain his blue electricity.

ISS - Guardian rank


Reaching the Guardian rank, Delsin will unlock the first tier of good powers. This rank can be achieved after having done enough good deeds at Protector rank.


Delsin's appearance will remain the same, with the exception of the logo on his jacket having changed from the two birds slightly tilted to the right (Protector), to the white/blue bird that represents good karma having become larger.
