Get high scores and use that cash to customize your runner!
In Touch Tap Play’s 6ix9ine Runner tips and tricks guide, we will show you how to get lots of money and score lots of points. Let’s get started with our 6ix9ine Runner cheats, tips, and tricks strategy guide to get high scores!
Bash to the Beat
In 6ix9ine Runner your main objective is to get to the end of the song while trying to smash as many of the note block as you can. The blocks come at the same time as the beat of the song you are listening to, so keep up with the beat and you should be able to predict the blocks.
Simply drag the screen with your finger to control your runner. You can only move left and right. Slide around until you are lined up with a block, then wait and your runner will automatically slice the block in two.
Every block you destroy counts towards your combo, which is seen at the top of the screen. The higher the combo, the more points you will receive at the end of the song. Miss a block and your combo will break and reset back to zero.
You will receive cash when you make it to the end of a song. The amount of cash you receive depends on how far you get, so always try to make it to the very end!

Dealing with Double Blocks
You will be dealing with mostly single blocks per beat in a song, but sometimes you may come across two blocks next to each other. You have to position your runner directly in the center of the two blocks to hit them.
The angle is kind of tricky and you may miss one block even though it seemed like you were right in the center, but do not fret. Hitting at least one block on the beat will count and it will not break your combo, which is important if you are going for a high score.
On hard mode you will encounter beats that have more than two blocks on them, and the same rule applies – as long as you hit one block you are fine.
Getting More Money
You start the game with only one song unlocked, but after you beat it you can purchase a new song to play through. Each song costs an increasing amount of money to unlock.
The amount of reward money you get for finishing a song is equal to how far you get through it, as we mentioned earlier.
- Getting through at least 25% of the song gets you 250 cash.
- Getting through at least 50% of the song gets you 500 cash.
- Getting through at least 75% of the song gets you 750 cash.
So, the most amount of cash you can get for finishing a song is 750. Technically you do not even need to make it to the very end – just getting past the 75% point is enough. You can tell how far you are in a song by looking at three diamonds in the progress bar at the top of the screen.
You can boost your earnings at the end of a song by watching an advertisement if you have the time to spare. You do not need to do this, but you will have to replay older songs multiple times to rack up the cash normally.
Beating a song for the first time will unlock the harder version. In hard mode, there are a lot more mines and notes – this means you will be doing a lot more dodging and smashing.
The block patterns become very tricky, as they will often be weaved in-between mines, so you will need fast reflexes to beat a song on hard mode. The advantage to playing on hard mode is that you can get way more points than you can on normal mode.
However, the amount of cash you earn remains the same, so if hard mode is too difficult for you you can simply avoid it. You do not need to beat all of the levels on hard to progress.
Unlocking New Runners and Songs
On the main menu after finishing a song, you can browse the selection of characters and blades. You can enjoy the game as a anthropomorphic rat, a police officer version of 6ix9ine, or even a giant shark. There are plenty of fun runners to unlock!
In addition to the runners, you can also unlock new blades to wield into battle. It should be noted that none of these different runners or blades offer any special abilities of any kind; they are simply for fun, so go ahead and choose your favorite cosmetics.
With that said however, we recommend holding off on buying any cosmetic stuff until you unlock all of the songs. There is a total of ten songs to unlock in the game, and the prices can range from as little as 1,500 to as much as 4,000.
You will have much more fun earning money playing through your favorite songs rather than having to go through the same few songs over and over again.
Play with Headphones
As is the case with most rhythm games, you will need to be able to hear the music clearly in order to predict when the note blocks are coming. Playing this game on silent is possible, but you might as well play another game in that case!
You can play with your phone speakers fine, but if you really want to get into the zone we recommend you plug in your favorite pair of headphones to really feel the music. This is especially important if you are going for high scores!
Play with your Friends and the World
6ix9ine Runner has leaderboard support for your truly competitive types out there. You will need to login to you Facebook account if you want to compare scores with your Facebook friends.
Aside from that you have full access to the country and global leaderboards, which can be accessed by tapping the ranking button at the top right corner of the main menu.
Each song and difficulty has its own leaderboard, so if you have a favorite song you can compare yourself to the rest of the world. It is fun to chase down high scores and perfect your play, so practice a lot and show the world you are the ultimate runner!
