Street Fighter 6: How to unlock costumes
Each character in Street Fighter 6 comes with one default costume which is used in the arcade fights and the single-player mode – the World Tour. However, there are alternate costumes that players can unlock using a couple of methods.

In this guide, we will explain all the methods that can unlock the costumes that give a new look to your favorite SF6 characters. Although the procedure can be time-consuming, it is worth putting in the effort. Let’s dive right into it!
There are 18 Alternative costumes in Street Fighter 6, also known as Outfit 2.
They can be bought through Fighter Coins (FC) or by playing the World Tour Mode.
Each outfit goes for 50 FC. Buying all of them requires 900 FC.
Players are expected to spend about $18 to buy all the costumes.
Alternatively, playing World Tour Mode and reaching max Bond Level with your masters will unlock their costumes for free.
Bond Level can be increased by giving them gifts, interacting with them, and by completing side quests for them.
This can be a long method, but players can explore the game through the world tour, which is fun.
Try to aim for easy masters like Luke and Chun-Li rather than being a student of Ken or Lily in the start.
Methods For Unlocking Costumes In SF6
Most video game players intend to explore the game and unlock things as they progress. However, sometimes this can get tedious, so they look for an easy way out. SF6 has a system that can support both ways.
Spending Fighter Coins
An easier method for unlocking costumes requires players to spend real money. Street Fighter 6 has an in-game currency known as the Fighter Coins. Spending these coins on the outfits will unlock them, and you can wear these in your duels.
The Fighter Coins (FC) come in bundles, starting from 250 and going up to 2750. Moreover, there are 18 alternative costumes in total. A single outfit goes for 50 Fighter Coins, so buying all of them requires 900 FC.
Doing the math, we realize that players are expected to spend roughly $18 when buying all the costumes. The most efficient bundle is the one with 2750 FC as it has a better coins-to-money ratio.
Playing World Tour Mode
This is where the hard work comes into the equation. The length of World Tour game-play can vary from 10 to 30 hours depending on how you play it. Participating in more side quests will increase the play time without a doubt.
To unlock costumes, players need to choose their Masters and then take their Bond Level to the max which is 100. This can be achieved by completing missions for your master or giving them gifts.
When the bond level reaches the maximum, your Master will provide their alternative costume for free. Furthermore, players can repeat the process with all Masters in SF6. Relative to that, there are 18 Masters available.
There are specific ways to quickly take your Bond level to 100.
Offer Gifts: Giving gifts to your masters is the most efficient technique. Every master has a specific type of gift that they require. With a single gift like the Luxury Heat Packs, the bond level can increase by 2.
Mastery Quests: Some quests are dependent on the masters, so they check if you are worthy enough to be their student. These can increase the bond level by 10 which is a drastic increase.
Interaction: During your time as their student, the masters will talk to you. Choosing the appropriate option from the dialogue box can give a increase to the Bond level.
Farming Zenny: Zenny is required to buy gifts for the masters that they like. Play mini-games like Parrying Basketballs to earn about 10,000 to 12,000 Zenny in a matter of seconds.
Most of the masters are locked initially. Hence, you must interact with them to get their attention and be their student. Some of the masters may also want you to complete a quest successfully before they accept you. These masters are as follow.

All Master Locations
Every mentioned character has their requirement of being your master. However, the easiest one is Luke, who is also your default Master from the start of the campaign. Please visit the Training Center to find Luke and talk to him.
If not Luke, Chun-Li is the next easiest option. Having her as your master can help complete several objectives that are necessary for bond level increase, which eventually leads to unlocking costumes.
Masters like Lily and Ken should be kept for the end as they are the trickiest ones. They ask players to participate in multiple side quests that are time-consuming. Failing any mission is not an option. Therefore, you must put in all the effort.
That is all about unlocking costumes in Street Fighter 6. We suggest that you always go for the Fighter Coins approach if you are speed-running through the game. However, playing the world tour mode is more fun as you explore the open world and enjoy it.
