Subway Surfers offers a wide variety of character skins for each playable avatar. However, a few skins stand out from the rest because of their design, including the fan-favorite Zombie Jake skin, and this guide will explain how to get it.

The Zombie outfit for Jake is regarded as one of the rarest skin in Subway Surfers, so it's unsurprising why many players want to get their hands on it. Despite being so expensive, it’s pretty tricky to unlock Zombie Zake even if players have enough coins in their Subway Surfers wallet.

This is because the skin was introduced as a part of the Halloween 2020 celebrations and has since been removed from the game's shop. Luckily, there’s an easy workaround by which players can still get Zombie Jake in Subway Surfers.

Zombie Jake was the first limited character made available in Subway Surfers. He was temporarily introduced in the game with the Halloween update, and players could purchase it for $4.99.

As of writing, the only way to get Subway Surfers Zombie Jake is by changing your device date to 20-30th October 2020, the timeframe when the skin made its way to the game. After changing the time, reboot Subway Surfers and head to the Shop section to purchase Zombie Jake for 95,000 coins.
