Tips for unlocking every single character in the game
The hugely popular and ultimate Super Runner mobile game, Subway surfers recently celebrated 10th Anniversary. The game was released back in 2012 and has had a record high of three billion downloads since then. Since the game is about escaping a grumpy inspector and his dog, one of the key elements in this game is definitely the surfer you choose to play with. Although the character you choose to play with has no effect on the overall game, users may want to rotate characters based on their preferences. In addition, some users may also aim to unlock all to take full advantage of all the assets in the game. This guide is about the different characters in Subway Surfers, the ways to unlock them, and some valuable tips for unlocking them all in no time.

Subway Surfers Characters Guide: Tips and Tricks
This is a bonus section for users to efficiently manage their resources and money so that they can eventually unlock all the characters. The following are some helpful tips on unlocking grades.
1. Coin handling
If you notice, the majority of surfers can be unlocked with coins. Mathematically, to get all the characters that can be unlocked with coins, you need 1.97 million coins. Well, that would require a hell of a hassle. If we make a breakdown, there are 3 things you need to do:
Maximize your coin collection
It’s the fastest way to unlock your favorite character. Even if the track you are running through has no obstacles, always make sure to switch to the parallel tracks by swiping left and right so as not to miss the coins that are there to collect on these tracks. In addition, when your character is equipped with a Jetpack, instead of just sticking to a single line, be sure to quickly swipe left and right to collect the maximum number of coins from each side (if not all).
Use your coins carefully
The next important aspect you need to be calculating on is where to use your coins. If you want to unlock new characters, be sure to use your coins in only two areas, upgrading power-up items and unlocking characters. Do not throw away your coins in any other area of the game until your goal of playing with your favorite characters is met.
Be decisive with your choices
The third and final thing you need to do is to be decisive. With math, you can not unlock all the grades in one day. You need to find out which character is your favorite among them. Once you have made the right priorities, invest in that grade first and then gradually go for the rest by saving your coins.
2. Key management
Some of the characters can also be unlocked using keys. To back up this data with numbers, you need 1542 keys to get all the characters that can be unlocked with Keys. Unlike coins that are available in abundance, keys like the secondary currency in the game are relatively scarce. Therefore, it is also important to manage them efficiently:
- To begin with, use your keys only to buy hoverboards. Do not waste them reviving your character when he / she collides. Once you have unlocked all the characters, you can use your keys to revive and aim for the elusive record.
- Again, it’s a matter of choice. Just find out your preferred order and invest according to that order.
3. Take part in time-limited seasonal hunting events
Players must also look to take advantage of 20-day seasonal hunting events. Some special characters can be unlocked from these Level-based events. They even help you earn event coins that can also unlock one or two characters.
In addition, mystery boxes earned from each level can also give you the basic currencies of the game, ie coins and keys, which in turn can be used to unlock characters. Therefore, do not miss these events.
4. Think before you invest in premium grades
If you follow the list of grades, you will find that some of the grades need money investment to unlock. Personally, we would suggest that you collect the other characters before and then go for them. This is because developers sometimes send out free promotional codes for users to redeem some of the Premium ratings. So buy yourself some time and look to invest money so that you do not miss out on the free offers.
Players must note that some of the characters may shuffle in and out of the game when a new update is released. We will update this space as the game adds new characters. Make sure you keep an eye on the events in the game and the promotional codes the developers send out. If you have trouble unlocking your favorite character, you can always fall back on this quick help guide.
