Cuphead: all the secrets of the game (hidden coins)

In this guide, we are going to tell you about all the secrets that are hidden on the Cuphead game map: the location of short routes, hidden coins and hidden quests

Inkwell Island – World I

Before moving into the game world, be sure to complete the tutorial! Although it may seem like a little overkill, even if you understand the game, do it, because this is where the first gold coin will be obtained.

After you leave the house of the old teapot, you will see a map of the game world, where you can interact with various characters and go to certain levels. There is a hidden route here. Follow the river to the north (up the map) until you see that there is a ledge ahead without a ladder. You can get around this place and get to another part of the island. To do this, take a barely noticeable path to the right and go down to the bottom to get to the other side of the river.

If you haven’t unlocked the achievement yet, get the Corner Cutter achievement for finding the first shortcut.

There is also a hidden coin here that you can add to your wallet. First, go to the ax-headed guy and look at the trees behind him to spot a shiny coin. The character will block the passage to it, but will move away after you deal with all the bosses of the location. After that, come close to the coin.

Inkwell Island – World II

The second area is an amusement park. There are also various secrets here. As soon as you enter here, you can see three geeks. Talk to them and find out that the fourth member of their musical group is missing. After you fight Baroness Bonbon, go up through the tent and look behind the tent on the left side, located next to the stairs and the girl character. It is necessary to go around this tent from above so that the fourth singer jumped out of the bushes. Talk to him, return to the three friends and find that the whole group is assembled. You can talk to them and listen to the song.

There is also a hidden path here. Go upstairs and go behind the huge rock near the birdhouse. You can follow the rock to the right and reach the dragon tower. After that, return to the candy girl just below the birdhouse, talk to her and receive a gold coin as a reward.

There is also a juggler at the location. Parry four opponents at any level without touching the ground. Then talk to the juggler again and receive a gold coin from him as a reward.

Another gold coin is hidden in front of the trailer, located next to the transition point to the third world.

Inkwell Island – World III

If you approach the junkyard at the top, then try to walk behind it to find a hidden path that leads to the theater.

There is also a small stall behind the shop. Walk around it to pick up the hidden coin.

The last hidden coin is hidden behind the dice in the passage to the casino, on the left side. See screenshot.

If you collected all the hidden coins, and also collected each of them in the Run and Gun levels, then you should now get the High Roller achievement.

Additional secrets

There are two characters that hint at potential quests and achievements.

The turtle, which can be found in the northeast of the third world, where the pier is also located, talks about shades of gray. After completing the Pacifist quest (complete the Run ‘n Gun level without killing a single enemy), you will be able to see the game world in black and white (hidden mode). The sound quality will also become significantly outdated.

The Fork Man is always telling something about the A rating. He will communicate that those who are as sophisticated as he can see the world differently. Having received an A rating everywhere in this area, you will learn the secret and get an achievement. It is not necessary to get an A + rating. Any rating with the letter A (even A-) is enough.
