Power-Ups & Their Types

Power-ups are single-use abilities designed to increase engagement and participation in an activity. Deploying Power-ups can help boost scores and add an element of challenge to the activity.


Power-ups are enabled by default in the Participant-paced and Team vs Team game modes. They can be disabled on the game settings page before beginning an activity. Power-ups are not available for Lessons.  

Here are the different types of Power-ups available on Quizizz: 

Power-up Icon What it does
Supersonic  Players can get 1.5x the score for 20 seconds when they play at a faster speed 
Streak Booster

Boosts the number in the player's streak counter

Gift Players can send another player an extra score of 800
Double Jeopardy Players get double the score if they choose the correct answer but lose it all if they choose the wrong answer
2X Players get twice the score for answering a question correctly
50-50 Eliminates half of the incorrect answer options 
Eraser Eliminates one wrong option
Immunity A player can attempt the same question twice in case they answered it incorrectly the first time 
Time Freeze The timer is frozen to allow players to answer 1 question

Power Play

All players in the quiz get 50% more score in 20 seconds

Streak Saver

Protects a player’s streak against an incorrect answer


All players' screens glitch for 10 seconds (does not affect scores)

How participants can use Power-ups 

If Power-ups have been enabled for an activity, participants will get up to 3 Power-ups they can use. Each of these can only be deployed once, and it will impact only the question they are currently attempting. 

Participants can see all their Power-ups lined up at the bottom of their screen in the form of icons. They can click on any one of them to activate it. Once activated, that particular Power-up will no longer be available for use. 


Power-ups improve a participant's chances of getting a higher game score and influence their ranking on the leaderboard. However, they do not impact accuracy points. Accuracy is calculated purely on the percentage of correct responses, and not on game scores. You can easily view the accuracy points for your participants through our reports that highlight points and scores separately.
