Multiplier for Getting High Scores

A multiplier is the most important tool to get a high score in Subway Surfers. Everyone starts with 1X multiplier. After completing each mission, the multiplier increases. The multiplier can reach as high as 30X.

Do you know how a multiplier works? It will multiply your scores. For example, if you run 100 meters with a 5X multiplier, then your score will be 100 x 5 = 500. A 30X multiplier will give you 3000 per 100 meters. That's pretty awesome.

The 30X multiplier also works with the 2X multiplier. This would temporarily increase the score 60 times!

You need to complete the missions to increase the multiplier. At the top of the 1st screen of the game, you will find your active missions. This will be like collecting a certain amount of coins or jumping a certain number of times.


Go to the shop to upgrade the power-ups. These will help you to boost your score quickly. The best upgrades are the Coin Magnet, 2x multiplier, and the Jet Pack.

The Coin Magnet attracts every coin from any side of the railroad. If you boost it, then it will remain active for a longer period of time. This will allow you to get coins faster.

The 2x Multiplier is a great tool to increase your scores faster. It will double your existing multiplier. Jet Packs are also great tools to catch points. These items will make the character fly in the sky where there is no train or barrier.

There is also a power-up called Double Coins. It will double all the coins collected by you. But you need to buy it by spending a little real cash.


Hoverboards are the best safeguards against crashes. If you suddenly face a running train in front of you without having any way to escape, activate a hoverboard to destroy the train. Yes, it will destroy the obstacle in front of you. But a hoverboard can only destroy one obstacle. It will only last for 30 seconds.

You can activate a hovercraft by double-tapping while running. You need some practice to activate it during an emergency.

Hoverboards can be bought from the shop using coins. A hoverboard will cost you 500 coins. You will also get some from the mystery boxes.

Keys and Score Booster

Keys will regenerate the avatar. If your run ends in a crash, use one key to get another life. The race will begin again from that point. You can collect keys from running on the tracks. You can also get keys from mystery boxes. After completing missions, you will receive some keys. These items can also be bought from the shop.

You can buy a score booster from the shop using some coins. This item can be activated at the beginning of the race. It will add +5 to your current multiplier. So, if you are at a 10X multiplier, this booster will make it +15 for that run.
