In our ARMS Game Guide to Unlocking Arms, we have detailed everything you need to know about unlocking all 270 Arms in the game.

Unlocking Arms

In order to unlock additional Arms in ARMS Game, you must earn the in-game currency. To do so, try to play the Grand Prix Mode, Party Mix Mode, or the Ranked Mode. You can check out our Money Farming Guide attached above for more information.

As a general rule of thumb, the better you are at the game, the more money you will earn. In order to start unlocking additional Arms, you will need at least 30 currency points.

Once you have 30 points, start Get Arms and select the character for whom you want to unlock Arms. It is important to realize that not all the Arms will be for your chosen character.

Once you are done with the character selection, you need to determine how much time you want to invest in the mini-game. Here is a brief overview of everything you need to know:

  • 30-Points = 25 Seconds Default Time and +5 Seconds Clock Bonus
  • 100-Points = 50 Seconds Default Time and +5 Seconds Clock Bonus
  • 200-Points = 90 Seconds Default Time and +10 Seconds Clock Bonus

How to Play Mini-Game

In the mini-game, your primary objective is to hit the on-screen targets as quickly as possible in order to advance to the next level. Ofttimes, you will see either a Gift Box or a Clock appear on the screen.

Hit the Clock to acquire +5 or +10 seconds to your total time – depending on the points.

Hitting a Gift Box should allow you to unlock an additional Arm. After hitting a Gift Box, check the image on the back wall to see the Arm that you unlocked and the character for whom you unlocked the Arm.

Since there are 270 Arms in ARMS Game, you need to hit as many Gift Boxes as possible. In order to maximize your Gift Boxes appearances, you must hit as many on-screen targets as you possibly can. I do not recommend playing the 200-Points mini-game.
