How to get characters in Cookie Run Kingdom
Arguably, the real challenge of the Cookie Challenges Event is getting all the 18 characters you need to complete it.
Cookie Run Kingdom is a Gacha game with a focus on collecting characters. All of the characters required to complete the Challenges are pulled from the Rare or Epic rarity classes:
- Rare: Adventurer Cookie, Alchemist Cookie, Avocado Cookie, Blackberry Cookie, Carrot Cookie, Cherry Cookie, Gumball Cookie, Knight Cookie, Princess Cookie.
- Epic: Chili Pepper Cookie, Herb Cookie, Poison Mushroom Cookie, Pomegranate Cookie, Rye Cookie, Snow Sugar Cookie, Sparkling Cookie, Vampire Cookie, Werewolf Cookie.
Characters like these can’t be unlocked through gameplay progression. Instead, to unlock characters at these levels, you need to use Cookie Cutters at the Gacha.
Cookie Cutters are dropped at the end of quests in regular gameplay (albeit rarely), or you can buy them from the in-game shop for Crystals.
You earn Crystals every time you complete a new event, story beat, or achievement in the game. However, you can also buy Crystals with real-world money — either in bundles from the shop, or by purchasing the current season’s Kingdom Pass.
The character you get from the Gacha is always random, though the likelihood is affected by rarity. So the complication of the Cookie Challenges is really doing the work to unlock all necessary characters before you can complete the full event.
So yes, you could argue that this time-limited event is meant to encourage you to grind for Crystals, or else just spend your real-world cash on them. (It’s a gacha game, after all.)
But every time you complete a challenge you’ll be rewarded, and rewards include Crystals; so if you manage your resources right, you ought to be able to unlock more characters as you go.
Good luck getting those Epic Cookies!
