Thread: Platform Racing 2 Hat Guide

  1. #1

    Default Platform Racing 2 Hat Guide

    This thread is now in the description of Newby Train!
    This thread was "stickied" on December 5th, 2012 by VforVendetta!

    You guys rock! Thanks so much for your support!


    Friends having trouble getting a hat? See someone in chat asking how to get a hat? No Problem! Share this thread with your friends with ease!

    http://bit.ly/pr2hats

    It works!

    Also, if any of the wording is weird or you have something you want added, please, don’t hesitate to PM me here!


    So, without further ado... it has come to my attention that people might not know what certain hats are, when new to the game. This guide will teach you how to get those hats, what they do, and even a nifty Picture!

    Please do not respond something like "Thanks, Captain Obvious"; if you are new this is for you.

    Please note, there is no other way to get these hats. If someone offers you a Hat through a PM, or makes a Level asking you to send them your Username and Password, do not fall for it. It is a Scam. Report the PM or Level to a Staff Member Immediately.



    The Hats and What they do!

    kong_hat.png Kong Hat: Increases your EXP Gain by 25% at the end of a level!

    exp_hat.png EXP Hat: Increases your EXP Gain by 100% (Doubles it) at the end of the level!

    Propeller Hat: Hold up while falling for slower falling!

    santa_hat.png Santa Hat: Blocks below you turn to Slippery Blocks! Doesn't include arrow, crumble, move, or vanish blocks... Update March 9, 2013: There seems to be a glitch to let you freeze all of the blocks now! More information here!

    crown_hat.png Crown Hat: Makes you immune to lasers, mines and swords!

    cowboy_hat.png Cowboy Hat: You can fly, and your stats become 100, 100, 100 until you use a speed burst, bump a smiley or sad block, or hit a mine!

    party_hat.png Party Hat: Makes you immune to lightning!

    top_hat.png Top Hat: You can go through vanish blocks from the sides or the bottom!

    js_hat.png Jump Start Hat: Skip the countdown clock at the beginning of the race (the "3, 2, 1, Go!")! Also, if you pick it up during a race, it gives you a speed burst!

    moon_hat.png Moon Hat: Finish a race in more than 1:30 to receive LUX in Jiggmin's game, Luna, if your PR2 and Luna accounts are linked.

    thief_hat.png Thief Hat: Pick up a knocked off thief hat to steal another player’s hat! (Their hat becomes the thief hat)

    Jigg Hat: Jump on people to slow them to a crawl, and to jump extra high from the momentum!



    How to Get the Hats

    Kong Hat: Hit the little button next to Level Editor on the left, that says "Get a free hat at Kongregate.com!" Log into your Platform Racing 2 account, and receive the Kong Hat!

    EXP Hat: Win it randomly in races with 2-4 people!

    Propeller Hat: Finish Hat Factory (This level is the last in campaign on a random server; switch between servers until you find this level as the last campaign level) by Jiggmin, or Finish Volcanic Inferno (This level is last in Campaign on a random server; switch between servers until you find it) by Pounce, with any number of players. Note: You must be Rank 15 or Higher to obtain this hat.

    Santa Hat: Win it randomly in races with 2-4 people! Note: Playing in races with 4 people increases your chances of getting this hat.

    Crown Hat: Earn a total of 5,000 points on Folding@Home. What is Folding@Home you ask? Click Here to find out! Note: It may take up to 2-3 days to get the crown hat.

    Cowboy Hat: Earn a total of 100,000 points on Folding@Home (see how to get the Crown Hat if you don’t know what Folding@Home is). Note: It may take up to 2-3 days to get the cowboy hat.

    Party Hat: Log into your Platform Racing 2 account on New Year’s Eve or Day! It can also be won randomly in races with 2-4 people, but it is much rarer than the EXP or Santa Hat.

    Top Hat: Click Here, and then Here! Win the level: The Golden Compass (by -Shadowfax-). This is the Guardian of the Top Hat!

    Jump Start Hat: Click Here then Here, then after that, Click Here! On January 30, 2012, Jiggmin awarded the hat to every Platform Racing 2 Player in existence, for "Breaking the Top 100". If you created an account, or had an existing account and logged in, you would have recieved this hat, free (as you would get the Kongregate Hat logging in on kongregate.com)! Now, the Jump Start Hat is available to be won randomly during a Happy Hour in races with 3 or 4 people! For more information on Happy Hours, Click Here, then Here!

    Moon Hat: On July 10th, 2012, Jiggmin announced "The Luna Campaign", to advertise his [at the time] new space-themed game called Luna, which can be found here. If you sent him a level, or he played your level on a LiveStream, you were awarded with the hat! The Luna Campaign is out, and the Hat is available to be won on: Redemption (by cooldude90), with 4 players, on a random server (switch between servers until you find this level as the last campaign level). This is the last level of the Luna Campaign and the Guardian of the Moon Hat! Note: You must be rank 15 or higher to play this level.

    Thief Hat: On September 18th, 2012, Hipponator announced his idea of the User’s Choice Campaign, which he called the "Timeline campaign". His thread where he announced it can be found here. JV liked the idea so much, they voted on this idea being the theme for the User’s Choice Campaign! The last level in this campaign is Apocalypse by Divinity. You can win it with any number of players on a random server (switch between servers until you find this level as the last campaign level). This level is the Guardian of the Timeline Campaign! Note: You must be rank 15 to play this level.

    Jigg Hat: On December 15th, 2012, Tommy 8 posted his idea of the Jigg Hat in the Motley Monday section. On February 5th, 2013, Jiggmin released the Jigg Hat (with major mystery on how to get) in Motley Monday ep. 10 - Changelog about Changelogs (see the video here). More info on Motley Monday can be found here. PR2 and JV went wild for almost 2 days trying to figure out how to get it, when it was discovered that you must search the user Zephir and play his level Buto (EXACT), only there is a catch. The hat doesn’t show up as a winnable prize at the beginning of the race; you must wait in a certain place in the level when 0:43 is remaining for the hat to start falling, as if it was knocked off a player. A picture can be found here of the hat in midair. It literally just starts falling out of nowhere right at 0:43 remaining, so be on your toes! Also, you can win it if you complete a level first when you steal someone else’s Jigg Hat.



    And now a list of what hats are available to be won at the moment:

    Released and Obtainable

    • Kong Hat
    • EXP Hat
    • Propeller Hat

    • Cowboy Hat
    • Party Hat
    • Top Hat
    • Jump Start Hat
    • Moon Hat

    If you have a video on how to win all hats (and a demo of the hats), then I will happily put the video here!
