The Spartan objective in Temple Run 2 is one of the more frustrating objectives in the game, because it takes a decent run to get.. also, one slip up and you’re starting over.
To complete The Spartan objective, you need to get 1 million points without using any powerups. This includes not only your own powerups, but on track powerups as well.
This is the only real requirement to get The Spartan. There are rumors that you can’t use head starts or revives, but these are not true. You can use all of the revives and head starts that you want, and you can collect gems on the run as well, the only requirement is that you can’t use powerups.
What You’ll Need to Complete The Spartan Objective
These abilities, in no particular order, will make completing The Spartan a lot easier.
Score Multiplier – Increases your score.. this one is essential, so max it out if you can!
Coin Value – The the coin value, the more points you get. This one is a no-brainer, so upgrade it.
Save Me – Reduces the gem cost for Save Me’s.. not essential, but can really help on longer runs.
Head Start – I don’t use these a lot because they’re expensive, but if you have purchased all of the abilities you want then upgrade this as needed.
Tips & Tricks To Get The Spartan
My primary tip for getting The Spartan is not to be afraid to die on a long run in order to avoid a powerup. They like to place them in tricky spots sometimes making them hard to avoid, like over jumps and obstacles, etc. You can use Save Me’s, so die and use one if needed.
Everything else is going to be a lot of luck and skill. If you’re having trouble, collect a bunch of gems and upgrade some more abilities before going at it again.
