Tips and tricks to rule at Subway Surfers


When asking our users which endless runner game they like the most, it was crystal clear that everyone loves Subway Surfers, the fun and super addictive app with a young skater as the main protagonist who gets caught spray painting by a security guard and his watchdog. To avoid being caught and sent to juvie, our hero must scamper down the train tracks while dodging speeding trains and obstacles while collecting coins and powerups. It’s just plain ol’ fun! Here are some tips and tricks for the best endless runner game crowned by our readers.


Use move combos

There are a few really userful move combinations that could make all the difference when the game gets faster, more crowded and just more challenging in general. These special moves will help you attain more coins or cancel jumps when flying head-first into a train.

Jump + right or jump + right + right to dash to the right in mid-air
Jump + left or jump + left + left to dash to the left in mid-air
Jump + Roll = Cancels your Jump then instantly goes into a Roll
Roll + Jump = Cancels your Roll then instantly goes into a Jump
Stay high
Just think of it like that lava game you played as a kid where you couldn’t touch the floor: the best strategy when playing Subway Surfers to get as far as you can is to stay on top of trains and use power ups that make you fly. Do this as much as possible, it’s much safer than staying on the ground. And if you use the coin magnet, you can attract coins that are both on the trains and the ground without risking your life.


As a last resort to avoid dying, use a hoverboard at the last possible moment when you think you are going to run into something: double tab and activate the hoverboard to save your life.

These futuristic skateboards will also keep the game interesting. There are many different kinds. Usually most will only last 30 seconds before disappearing. However, there are some that are permanent, but require a certain amount of coins to get. Often they are limited editions that have already expired. To be able to get your hands on these, you can change the time and date on your smartphone. Once you get the hoverboard you want, change the time back to normal.

That being said, I wouldn’t invest any real money in hoverboards, try on concentrating on power ups as these will really help you progress in the game. Hoverboards, as mentioned above, are great for last minute use in order to defy death (and starting all over again). Keep these for the later stages in the game where things start getting a little hairy.
