Subway Surfers - Tips and Tricks
When you're starting out, coins are much more important to collect. So while shopping, opt for power-ups like the Jetpack and Coin Magnet before choosing the x2 Multiplayer and Super Sneakers, unless they're absolutely necessary to complete a mission.
For items, focus on coins first and foremost
Get on top of the trains
When you're riding on the top to the trains, you'll have a better vintage on the oncoming traffic and power-ups since the camera goes right behind you. Hey, anything that helps, right?
For 300 coins a pop, the hoverboard will make you immune to anything and everything. This allows you nail high scores and earn the highest possible coin returns. In other words, they are worth their weight in gold.
Trigger Mega Headstart at the start
Want more than 10,000 points right at the beginning of a level? Just trigger the Mega Headstart. Done and done.

Power-ups that you can pick up while playing are:
- Jetpack which allows you to fly over all of the trains and collect a trail of coins along the way.
- Super Sneakers will make your character run faster than normal, and will pick up any coins under them.
- Coin Magnet will collect all of the coins in the vicinity around you.
- 2X Multiplier will double your score while it is active.
All of these power-ups only last a limited time, so make sure you take advantage of them while they’re active. For more information on Power-ups, use our guide to Subway Surfer Power-ups.
Bump Into Barriers
Jump early or jump late and you'll bump into the red and white barriers without being caught by the inspector and his dog.
A cool way to make extra coins is by having your friends run so you can earn additional money. For each 50 friend runs, you will earn a coin bag with valuable coins inside.
If you trigger the Mega Headstart as soon as your mission starts you will immediately be launched into the sky and get an easy 10000+ points without having to jump or roll.
When you have bouncy shoes and you're in the air you can wipe twice and when you come back down you will jump twice.
Collecting coins easily
You just need to go to the boosts and then click on the mystery box option and click. You will see coins like 5,000, 200, 500, etc, but if you're lucky you will get 100,000 coins.
