A new duelist is finally coming to the GX side of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links.
After a brief cameo in Duel Links, Syrus Truesdale is now available to unlock in Konami’s popular mobile game along with new cards and skills.
Like past unlockable duelists in Duel Links Syrus requires a bunch of grinding to get, but the game does offer more incentives than normal in the form of a new skill that can only be unlocked the same way as Syrus. Plus there’s cards to farm.
If you’re looking to unlock Syrus and learn about his new cards and skills, we’ve put all the information you need below.
HOW TO UNLOCK/FARM SYRUS IN DUEL LINKS
To unlock Syrus in Duel Links, duelists will need to fill up the Duel Meter. Like other events that revolve around the Duel Meter, the more duels you participate in the faster it fills up. Victories gain more points than losses and certain duels are worth more. Syrus is unlocked when you accumulate 4400 points.
The fastest way to get there is to duel in PVP, against the Vagabond and Legendary Duelists. Syrus himself will appear in Duel World after a few duels and defeat him will net a lot of points.
