In Snake Pass by Sumo Digital, one of the hardest collectibles in the game are known as "Gatekeeper Coins." These Gatekeeper Coins are hidden in various spots across every different map in Snake Pass, including the tutorial.
The task of finding all five Gatekeeper Coins in the first level of Snake Pass "Paradise Path" can be quite a challenge for new players. Especially when attempting to collect these Gatekeeper Coins, as they're often placed in areas that are extremely difficult for Noodle to reach.
To help, we've put together a guide on where you can find all five Gatekeeper Coins in the Paradise Path level of Snake Pass, and how you can collect them.
Gatekeeper Coin #1
If you want to go forward to back, rather than completing the tutorial and
However, you'll want to snake forward onto the circular platform to save your progress before heading over to the tree. That way, if you fall, you'll spawn right back on the platform!
To the right of the tree, you'll notice a series of bamboo poles. To collect the first Gatekeeper Coin in Paradise Path, you'll need to have Doodle hold your tail, then slowly moving forward to the second bamboo
There, carefully wrap Noodle around the
A key rule to Snake Pass is to remember to always keep a firm grip when wrapping yourself around bamboo poles. Otherwise, Noodle is going to go plummeting over the edge, and you'll have to start over.
It's normal for it to take a few tries to gather this Gatekeeper Coin. Once you've collected it, head over to the circular platform to save your progress, then proceed forward.
Gatekeeper Coin #2
The second Gatekeeper Coin in the Paradise Path level of Snake Pass can be found by slithering forward over a bridge, then looking back to your right.
There, you'll find the Gatekeeper Coin hovering above a small platform. To collect the second Gatekeeper Coin, simply head back and grab it before turning your attention to the third Gatekeeper Coin.
Gatekeeper Coin #3
The third Gatekeeper Coin in Paradise Path, and arguably the hardest to collect, is located below the bridge you crossed when gathering the second Gatekeeper Coin. To collect this Gatekeeper Coin, you'll need to employ similar methods used when collecting the first Gatekeeper Coin.
First, save your progress on the circular platform in case you make a mistake. That way, you won't need to travel far when trying again. It's easy to fall while attempting to collect this Gatekeeper Coin, so don't worry if you make a few mistakes. It's totally normal!
Because this Gatekeeper Coin is positioned below the level, it's important to remember the age-old mantra, "slow and steady wins the race," when heading down the bamboo poles.
To collect the third Gatekeeper Coin, have Doodle lift your tail, then slowly descend down toward the first bamboo
Continue to snake around the bamboo poles and head for the long bamboo pole in the center. Below this, you'll find the third Gatekeeper Coin. Drop your head down slowly to collect the coin, move it underneath the
The process of getting back up after you've collected the third Gatekeeper Coin can be tricky. Again, gripping onto the bamboo poles is important, as is remembering to lift your head as you wrap around and head back up to the top of the level. Once you reach the top, slither over to the circular platform and save your progress again (better safe than sorry).
Gatekeeper Coin #4
The fourth Gatekeeper Coin is hidden below a tall platform you drop over right when heading toward the Gate. To collect the fourth Gatekeeper Coin, simply turn around and slide forward before continuing forward through the Paradise Path map in Snake Pass.
Gatekeeper Coin #5
The fifth and final Gatekeeper Coin in the Paradise Path map can be found past the Gate and to your left. There, you'll see another series of bamboo poles.
Again, collecting the fifth Gatekeeper Coin requires you to carefully snake around these bamboo poles in order to get close enough to grab the Coin.
Just like the first Gatekeeper Coin hidden behind the tree, have Doodle lift up your tail, then use your grip while wrapping around the bamboo poles. Don't forget to lift your head up!
Once you collect the fifth and final Gatekeeper Coin, head back to the gate, then veer off to the left to collect the pink Keystone. This will unlock the Gate, allowing you to progress forward to the second level in Snake Pass.
After heading through the gate, your progress will appear before you. If you managed to collect all five Gatekeeper Coins, you'll see all five Coin slots filled out at the end of the Paradise Path level in Snake Pass!
