Tactics for The Redhead
I don't think I've seen anyone choose to use The Redhead online, do people not like her? For singleplayer she would be hard to use, but I think she would be one of the most effective characters on multiplayer. Think about this:

Redhead-Cleaner Combo: Redhead attracts guards and brings them around a corner one by one for the cleaner to knock out.

Redhead-Anyone: The Redhead can cause distractions allowing any other characters without disguises to get past.

Any other tactics?

I don't think the Redhead Cleaner trick works, unless you uncharm, he can't be put to sleep

I like the Redhead, she neat for getting pass lock/handprint door faster and can lure or save someone from being spot. She works well with getting people revive (3 seconds less on revives)

So stick with the team, grab someone if you need to get pass a handprint door if the hacker can't get a hack up. Also if a room only have one guard, make sure you get him, it buys you some time if a civilian spot you and find another

Redhead can uncharm by bringing the lover to a bush where the Cleaner's waiting, the enemy will walk into the bush, lose track of the Redhead, drop the charm effect, be instantly deaggroed, and be instantly cleaned. :)

Redhead is definitely the most nuanced character. A really good Redhead player will be noticeable and game changing.

I've saved many allies lives by anticipating a guard and charming them before they attack my friends. On top of that, have 2x rez speed is amazing in the harder missions.

Definitely great suggestions!

I think the reason that most people don't user her is because she is one of the characters that takes a lot of skill to use. If you are just running through the level nilly-willy, its hard to understand what difference she makes.

I like using her to charm guards or NPCs to push them through locked doors :D

I just finished Hospital as a Cleaner with Lockpick and RedHead. Indeed the girl is a wonderful recon unit for ambush, just had to wait those idiots in a corner to finish them !
Edit : Sorry, i switched with Lookout. Lookout/Cleaner, my favorite combo for now !

My favorite use of the Redhead is to get through those pesky alarm doors. They're really troublesome when there's nothing to hack nearby.

Hmm, i should play with that more. I tend to just emp/wrench those doors (if given the chance). I suppose you could also use her to hold the door open for your comrades.

Andy, thank you for this wonderful game ! As a french player, I'm very amused by the speaking of the guards and others, it's so funny !

Bonjour? Non, ne me tuez pas!

Heh, the NPCs really sound silly. In a good way.

I think that the Redhead as said AndyN. is the most hard character to masterize in some way but can be more than useful if masterized. It could be great if her charm ability was a bit more flashy or something so we can see who is getting charmed cause sometimes when there is 2 people entering the room you are charming one and you wanted to charm the others and you don't even notice it. Her ability is cool but she can dies stupidly because of it by charming a 2nd guard :D

I like the redhead a lot she's probably my second picked character after the pickpocket. As said she is able to get through locked doors and hand scanners with ease.

Btw if you get a guard to follow you and unlock doors they will auto lock as you pass. However if you get a civilian they will remain unlocked. I don't remember how dogs work but I know dogs can unlock doors for you too.

Last night I played a bunch of matches with a good Redhead, and it really does make a difference. From that gameplay, I feel like some of the main uses for her are:
-Recon. With charm she can go farther out without fear.
-Helping someone get past a guard patrol. For classes that need to move around a lot like Hacker, partnering with the Redhead can be extremely useful.
-Pulling key targets. Cleanerless team needs to get to a computer monitor with a guard at it? Readhead's got it.
-Opening Doors. Yeah.
-Speed reviving, of course.

Plus, it's just a fun archetype. Seducing a guard so the Hacker can go in and shut down security is just so heist movie.

I think as players become more familiar with the strategies of each class, more and more redheads will come into play.
