Falco has been a Smash Bros staple ever since Melee, and he’s back again in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. However, you will have to put some work into unlocking Falco. Here’s how to unlock Falco in Smash Bros Ultimate.
Fastest Way To Unlock Falco In Smash Bros Ultimate
To unlock Falco in Super Smash Bros Ultimate fast, you need to play Classic Mode four times, starting as Fox. You’ll unlock Captain Falcon, Zero Suit Samus, Peach, and then Falco.
This should take around 40 minutes or less. While you can also use World of Light or Smash Mode to unlock Falco, these methods will generally take longer.
How To Unlock Falco In Classic Mode
It takes 4 games of Classic Mode to unlock Falco if you start as Fox. The Super Smash Bros character unlock order shows that Falco is the 5th character in Fox’s unlock chain.
Fox > Captain Falcon > Zero Suit Samus > Peach > Falco > Daisy > Bowser Jr. > Wolf > Mewtwo > Sonic
Completing Classic Mode as Fox will unlock Captain Falcon. You can then use either to unlock Zero Suit Samus, Peach, and finally Falco. With each game taking around 10 minutes, this should only take around 40 minutes or less.
How To Unlock Falco In Smash Mode
You can also use regular Smash Mode battles to unlock all of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate characters. Usually, the game allows you to unlock around one character every 10 minutes. However, by resetting the game software, you can cut this down to 1-2 minutes.
However, Falco is the 32nd character you unlock using this method. That means it’ll still take a while to unlock him, and using Classic Mode will generally work out much faster.
How To Unlock Falco In World of Light
You can also get Falco in World of Light, the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Adventure Mode.
You can find Falco in Space. You’ll need the Slippy Toad Spirit, then go to fix the Spaceship on Icy Mountain. Once you repair the ship you’ll be able to fly into space and find Falco. This can take a while and is the slowest method for unlocking Falco.
