How to Get Skill Points

Unlocking Skill Points can get a bit tedious since you have to do a lot of grinding to unlock all skills in the tree. However, if you know the best ways to get these points, you will have a great time and easily unlock all the skills.

By far, the best way to gather Skill Points is to go fishing. Yes, you heard that correctly. A Sonic game allows you to go fishing. Fishing is a great way to spend your time in the game as this minigame is quite interesting and you can get tons of tokens.

Once you have enough, you can trade the tokens to get Skill Pieces (Skill Points) and unlock new skills. Plus, you can also look for various green canisters spread across the map and open them. While they don’t always guarantee Skill Points, they are still a great way to earn all types of resources.

Apart from this, you can obviously beat up enemies and get rings and level up from them. However, be careful since some of the enemies can be quite difficult if you are a newer player.

How to Unlock Skills

To unlock the skill, you have to enter the menu by pressing the relevant keybind on your keyboard or controller. Then, navigate to the separate Skills section and unlock whatever you prefer. When you have enough Skill Points, you will see an exclamation point pop up to show that you can unlock a new skill.


There you have it, that is everything you need to know about the Sonic Frontiers complete skill tree. The game allows players to unlock various attacks to use and defeat the bad guys. This makes the combat fresh and avoids getting repetitive. Plus, having more skills at your disposal is a great tool to have.
