Crossy Road: How to Unlock Secret Characters in iOS/Android


Along with latest Crossy Road's micro update, I've also played a bit to find out how to unlock the secret characters. From this UK update, I can unlock three more secret characters, Rugby Player, Michael Boom, and Jughead. Also for certain, you get some new characters that can be acquired from the gacha.


How to Unlock Jughead in Crossy Road?

To unlock Jughead, you have to be at first unlock Archie and use him. While you're hopping with Archie, look for a burger on the side of the road. When you hop into it, you will unlock the Jughead. However, you can just find one and unlock it. You need to hop into 50 burgers approximately as a requirement.


How to Unlock Michael Boom in Crossy Road?

Who doesn't know Michael Boom? He's the producer of the mega-blockbuster movies like The Transformex Series, Armoutgeddon, and many other boom-bastic movies.

So to unlock this guy, you can use any characters in Crossy Road, and while you're hopping, look for a green truck with rocket. Hit your characters into that truck and enjoy the explosive moment like all of Michael Boom's movies.


How to Unlock Rugby Player in Crossy Road?

I've read many forums that saying that this Rugby Player is the hardest character that they've ever tried to unlock. Unfortunately, it is the hardest character to unlock. I haven't been able to unlock this character, but from many resources, unlocking Rugby Player has something to do with acorn and small white rugby ball.

Some people said that you need 10+ acorns while other were saying that only 5+ acorns. Either way, you should find a small white rugby ball on the top of the tree, after you collect these acorns. Then, you should hit the tree first so that the ball will fall down.

Crossy Road is one of the game that I still put inside my games folder. The reason because Hipster Whale's Crossy Road is one of few games that keeps update its game with new characters.

Since my last 'how to get secret characters' post for Crossy Road, it has at least 4 updates that bring in cute unique characters, each with their own uniqueness that affect the environment.

Most of the characters in Crossy Road can be won via gacha. However, for certain characters, you need to do something in order to get them and these guys won't be available in the gacha lottery. Last time, I've put list on how to get Hipster Whale, Drop Bear, Ben Weatherhall, Andy Sum, and Matt Hall. Now I'll put some list on how to get the rest of unlockable characters.


How to Unlock Gifty in Crossy Road?

To unlock this cute little gift, you have to unlock Festive Chicken first. Festive Chicken itself is unlockable on Christmas theme. If you happen to have Festive Chicken on your characters list, you have probability to unlock this cute chicken.

Gifty is unlockable when you run between 70-100 points. You'll enter a large clearing. Continue hopping and when you find a giant Christmas tree, run up to it and the tree should explode with presents and coins. This where you will acquire your Gifty.

How to Unlock Crab in Crossy Road?

Crab is one of those unlockable characters from Australia Day theme. To unlock this character you can just use any Australian characters. Then in the lane, swipe to the left and right, so you're only moving sidewards not forwards or backwards. Be careful when doing this, because if you're cleaning your screen too much in one lane, the Eagle will come and scoop you away. I'm cleaning my screen about 5 times per lane, and then I move forward.

Once you have clean your screen enough, at the end of your run you will be rewarded with the Crab. If you don't receive anything when you die, it means you haven't cleaned your screen enough.

How to Unlock Cai Shen in Crossy Road?

Cai Shen is available after the CNY update. To get this Chinese spoken character, you have to play with Fortune Chicken. Then as you play, pick up the red envelopes (we call this kind of envelope as ang pao) that scattered as you run.

You need to accumulate a total of 21 red envelopes. So you don't need to finish this requirement in one run. You can run several times and pick up the red envelopes. Once you gather enough the red envelopes, you can get Cai Shen in your characters list.


How to Unlock Phone Box in Crossy Road?

As you may know, Phone Box is one of the iconic thing in UK and Ireland. It's also used as the time travelling machine from the famous TV shows Dr. Who; the only different is the color whereas Dr. Who's Tardis is in Blue, Crossy Road's Phone Box is in Red.

The way to obtain Phone Box is quite similar with the way to acquire Gifty. You need to use UK/Ireland characters and hop until you get score around 100 (or more), then you'll find a large grass and like always, you hop until you find Phone Box in the middle. After you find it, go near the Phone Box until it stops ringing and turns to a dial tone.


How to Unlock Nessy in Crossy Road?

Nessy works like Hipster Whale. The way to acquire this cute creature is also the same as acquiring Hipster Whale. To unlock Nessy, find Nessy randomly floating alongside the logs in the river. Just jump over Nessy's back and you can unlock Nessy after you die.

How to Unlock Leprechaun in Crossy Road?

Leprechaun is also available when you play using the UK/Ireland character. To unlock Leprechaun you got to look and pick up green clovers that dot the map. When you finally come across green clovers that slightly larger, that one will let you unlock the Leprechaun.


Want to Unlock More Characters?

The characters that I've mentioned are characters that can't be purchased via gacha. I also post other secret characters in my previous post, so you might want to look at that post if you can't find the characters you're looking for.
