Candy Crush Saga Level 2280 tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2280 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2280 is a dual task level, you have to clear all the jelly and collect the 4 ingredients.
This is also a sugar drop collecting level.
First use sideways stripe to unlock the ingredients, then get them down onto the conveyors. The conveyors will take the ingredients down to the bottom of the board and along the bottom to the middle.
Then comes the tricky part, you have 4 moves, as the ingredients move vertically up the conveyor, to switch them sideways off the conveyor and into the exit column. You can use a hand switch if you wish but it is usually possible with a little planning and patience, to get them off the conveyor and into the middle.
Try to get two candies of the same colour directly above the ingredient then you can switch them out easily when another candy of the right colour is in the middle.
The jelly will more or less take care of itself while you are working on collecting the ingredients.

MUCH harder than she makes it sound. Passed with boosters.

Seems to be a glitch here. Had 15 moves left but the 2nd apple just disappeared. ��

Ridiculously harder than the description. The chances of first getting a stripe to stay in the middle and free the fruit/nuts is none and then to get an opportunity to swipe one, let alone FOUR fruit to the middle to the exit is laughable at best.

Don't know how other people can recommend this level for sugar drop, it is extremely hard for me. Had to use many switch to pass this level. Please remember to load fish, jellies under dispensers are hard to reach. PH

The mobile version is different from the PC version in that the conveyors do not go 4 rows high but just on the bottom row. You have to move with a hand switch the ingredients over to an exit column next to them, unless you want to wait for the opportunity (without using a hand switch) to do that which you don't know how long or how many moves that will happen.

Thanks for explanation. Indeed mobile version is impossible to move ingredients(4!) to exit without hand boosters. PH

Fish, got it. Makes sense. Thank you:)

Switch to PC vertical conveyor makes it much easier, impossible on phone without boosters.

And this isn't considered hard? The only way I can see to win this is with hand switches..
Just like you all wishing for a lucky board.

on the mobile version wait for the ingredient to move from the lower conveyor to the upper one. It has to be in the first position in the upper conveyor! If you clear a vertical row just below, it will drop down to the middle section. Still impossible but does not require a hand switch that way!

Ok that was horrible. Helmet, switch, and 2 hammers. Glad to be done!

Unknown said...

Absolutely horrible. Helmet, 4 hand switches and fish booster. Glad to be done

On iPad there's no conveyor on which to make a sideways stripe to free the ingredients. After several tries I found it impossible to free the ingredients so I used 4 hammers to get them out. Trying to drop a stripe was next to impossible! They always exploded befor I could get them down, and that would also involve a hand switch. Hand switches were the only way to get the ingredients out. This level was totally ridiculous. Thank goodness for boosters or I would be here forever! This is the first level that I found incredibly difficult because of the fact of the spacing of the holes down the centre. Very frustrating level. Good luck everyone!

On Kindle, there is an empty window 2 spaces above the exit where the fruit hangs up. Absurd to put that there when its not on the others.

Here is another extremely difficult level that's not even labeled a hard level!! It's damn near impossible!! Beyond tired of these ridiculous levels !! Regardless if you play on your PC or your iPhone or your android or your iPad this level is not possible

Joshua Shumpert said...

Agree. The fruit gets hung up there and there is no way, at all, to get it out without using a hand switch.

This is what helped me with the mobil version: After an ingredient has moved accross the bottom conveyor, when it *first* reappears on the upper conveyor; make a match on the side of the middle area below the ingredient. The ingredient will slip off of the conveyor and begin to fall down the middle area, headed down to the exit directly below! This is still not easy; but it doesn't use a hand switch. -- The Chipster.

Corinne said...

This glitches every few tries. I unlock the fruits, and they drop into oblivion - never to be seen again. Blegh..

Kai Q said...

In Android, this should be a hard level, but doing so will show that the development team made some mistake causing 4 hard levels in a row. Also, if ur fruit somehow enters into the center area, it is basically a dead end if u don't use boosters to swap it out. Looks like a bug to me.

Kai Q said...

My bad, there's a normal level in between.

Kai Q said...

Just passed on android, no boosters used. Got rid of the fruits first, then got rid of their jellies. 3 stars.

It's a different board on mobile.

Kai Q said...

On mobile boards are usually harder than pc, but it's still doable, even wo boosters.

Yes! The phone app for Samsung is different as well. There is no up conveyor and the ingredients drop thru a portal at the bottom and go to the top...urggg

Diana C said...

I hate this level, damn fish boosters don't come out until you have few moves left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

That is unless your ingredients don't accidentally drop on top of that bloody hole in the middle. Once it's there, is is gameover. There is absolutely no possibility of moving it out without a Free Switch.

Something is not working right! I play on my android and I had 15 moves left and had one more ingredient, the nut, and it never appeared. I just got screwed! I used a fish and a sprinkle and bam was doing great until I couldn't get the last ingredient to even appear! Please fix.

The biggest problem I am having is that when a fruit gets to within one plac of the exit, it invariably slips diagonally back on to the lower conveyor. It is infuriating. I was within one move of completing the game when this happened YET AGAIN. I was about to destroy the single blocking candy with a colour bomb, when suddenly the damn cherry slid around it again.

Thanks for the tips on moving the fruit to the center from the top conveyor on mobile. That helped a lot. Here's my tip: Start with all 3 boosters. Restart until a horizontal stripe is next to the fruit. Set it off with the sprinkle if you can. I had to use a hammer. Then you have the rest of your moves to get the fruit down. I didn't get any more fish so in the end had to hammer 3 jellies. You have to use boosters to pass this level so just do it.

Impossible without boosters on iOS, got it in one try with no boosters on PC. Just play the PC version, King clearly doesn't test their mobile versions before releasing them otherwise they would have noticed that no candies are dropping into some areas at all.

As someone else said above, it can be done on iOS . When the ingredient is on the top conveyor, match some candies in the middle and that will make it drop into the middle. If it gets stuck on top of the blank window it's game over but otherwise it's usually fairly easy to make it drop to the bottom. I found the hardest part was getting the ingredients unlocked in the first place and fish don't seem to do their job these days. In the end I used 2 hammers to make the last one drop.
I tried it on the pc and actually thought it was harder - only one column for the fruit to drop and hand switches are needed.
By the way I think this blog should be renamed. Can't recall the last time I passed a level with "no boosters"!

I'm using fish and wheel and I can clear all the jelly and drop the fruit with many moves left but I cannot get them to move to the middle to drop, UGH!!! I have no had switches and I'm not buying them either, need lucky board! Lori

This is ridiculous. I dont have any hand switches so going to be stuck here for bloody ages. How friggin boring. Game over I've had enough of these boring impossible levels :( Bye.

Lorraine said...

WTF. There is definitely a glitch in this level i get them lined up then use stripe so should go through but no the ingredient jumps back on to the conveyor. Come on King this level needs fixing.

I did this level on the PC, finished it with no boosters and really enjoyed it. I like hard levels that actually require skill -- with maybe just a little luck -- and not just mindlessly clicking until you get the lucky board. I only played it a few times before winning.

Stupid, boring level. Have gotten two ingredients to the middle, but that is about it. Nothing like spending the last 20 moves with no matches. Time to take a break and build up hand switches. Dumb, dumb, dumb....
