Candy Crush Saga Level 2518 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2518 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2518 is an extremely hard level, you have only 10 moves to clear all the jelly and complete the level.
There is no jelly under the spawners, so in theory there is no need to destroy them to clear the jelly.
However each time you destroy a spawner it will take the surrounding jelly with it.
After the first two moves the spawners will begin to spawn bombs with a countdown of only 5 moves, so these bombs can't be ignored, the absolutely have to be cleared before they can count down.
At the start there are not many choices of move, but try to work near the bottom if you can and also make sure that every move you make is next to at least one spawner.
Once some of the blockers are cleared and the board is opened up a bit you should look for colourbomb combos, either switched with a wrap, stripe or even another colourbomb. This will give you plenty of hits on the spawners and with luck will also clear the bombs.
You are likely to lose quite a few lives on this level, I went through them at a rate of 2 a minute!
But as you can see from the video below, if you play carefully and think about every move before you make it you can pass level 2518 without using boosters.
If you want to use boosters you may find a jelly fish booster useful.

I really wish there was some sort of strategy or logic to this one...I can't even get close before the timed bombs go off...it has to be luck, luck, luck....I tried to concentrate on the jelly, then the spawners, then making any kind of bombs, and then a combination thereof...but to no avail....I hope this one ends soon.

I dont know whats the purpose of this level. Entertaining and Fun surely not!
Even using boosters is useless. Again only waiting for a lucky board !

Elizabeth R. said...

It's almost impossible but if you get the right board you can delay the bombs. If you hit each of the spawners in the first 4 moves you can delay the bombs to move 6. In the 100 times I've played, I've gotten that set up only twice and still haven't beat it.

powernrg said...

I think this is the utmost idiotic level so far in this game.

Anonymous said...

Please ,really. Video did it with I don't know how many booms. It's completely unrealistic. This level is just awful. Hate the bombs.

Linda Voris said...

How about a longer countdown on the bombs?

Just tried this level and have to agree it is pretty hard . Will just keep trying.

Really King. No. I don't see how I can do this unless i used a magic helmet and all the boosters. I need to find a game to replace this nightmare.

Surely your programmers can do better then this.
Can not even get close.

RedMo said...

Like all these very tough levels, I do notice that I get a few 'breaks' until eventually my lucky board will come. Twice now I have blown all spawners, but with just 2 moves left to clear 18+ jellies I still didn't win. I am now posting so the real lucky board arrives.

RedMo said...

And done, 3 lollipop hammers.

Anonymous said...

Looks like we will need more then a lucky board on this one just can not even get close.
Help please

Anonymous said...

I was really close to win the first time I tried. Would've won if I had 2 lollipops. but after that more I play I play worse. How is it even the cb I make disappear when if I don't use it right away? I really need a break from this level. please help me.

How is this level even possible with all the bombs? Cannot get even close! Posting for luck!

very frustrated! I need a luck! I need a Ms. Cookie kind of luck.
ok, and her skill also. I just can't do it! I wish the players who passed this level would share how they did it. Lucky board? Please!

Anonymous said...

No lies. After I posted above, I was gifted a very lucky board! Thank you, Ms. Cookie! I've said it before too, Players, post your comment here. You will get your lucky board! I don't know how but it's true. Thank you Ms. Cookie! PC/No Boosters/2 stars

lala said...

Ok so I will also post hoping for the lucky board. Gotta say, I am not enjoying this episode very much. I broke down and used 10 gold I had won for level 2017 to finish that horrible level. Hoping for an easier run on this one. Stay positive!

jonithorne said...

Is this level a joke? Unbelievable.

lala said...

I went away for a few hours and returned to win after 4 tries (following about 75). 3 stars. Go figure. I have NO IDEA how I won but I'll take it. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Anonymous said...

After completing 2517 and feeling absolutely no satisfaction since it was a lucky board, I started this game and saw the amount of moves, then the bombs appeared and all I could do was LAUGH! Hahahahahahahahhahahahah ridiculous. Time to quit hahahahaha

Anonymous said...

Beyond total ridiculous!

Notice how nobody is talking about magic helmets and resetting anymore? Now it's rigged for us to need extra moves. This game has gone to pot and boiled.

Marie said...

Hej,
There is life after this level! Thank you Ms. Cookie, I always try to follow your advise. Of course, luck was involved. Just had to pay .99 cent - well spent money - to crush a time bomb. Fellow crushers, if I can do it, anybody can. Good luck from DC.

This has to be a joke, right?

Anonymous said...

Struggled for a couple days. Took a shot and used all 3 boosters (color ball, stripe/wrap and fish), got lucky with the color ball aligned next to a stripe for first move. Easily passed with several moves left. If you have boosters, they will help here.

Anonymous said...

Incredibly, I got this level after about 5 tries. I did not get the double color bomb, but had enough to clear the spawners and the jelly. Don't give up!

Anonymous said...

Anyone else having a glitch on this level? I have played a few games now where I get bombs around a clock/things, get the clock/thing to explode, but the bombs DO NOT GET WIPED... I have had this end my game a few times where I had one tick left on a bomb, made the clock/thing explode right beside it, then the bomb stays, goes to zero, and my game is over... this is why I will NEVER put one red cent into playing this game... Endless hours of my life I'll never get back? Yes. Money? No...

It's totally IMPOSSIBLE! King, please update!

wtf?

jackluver said...

this entire episode has been a joke!

Anonymous said...

Did it first try now that episode is on mobiles and with the help of fish booster and helmets.

Anonymous said...

Well THAT was weird. The bombs never appeared and I'm trying to figure out what I did. I'd settled in for many days of frustration on this one. I got a sprinkle ball the second move, took out all the blues. Then got another sprinkle paired with a stripe, which took out a bunch of spinners. A few more moves here and there, and game over. No bombs and 2 stars on my PC, no boosters. Glad to be done with it!!

Dieter Heinz said...

After 3 attempts I took a color bomb and wrap/stripe combo for booster. I tried so long until I had a bomb /wrap combo for beginning. This destroyed so much that I passed the level with 8 moves left.

Anonymous said...

Chocolate sprinkle/wrap combo with some of same color candies as wrap in close proximity to spawners. Had 13 moves on Android with 7 count bombs. Finished 1st try with 6 moves left.

Got this one in one try - thought to check to see if it's really that easy for everyone. No boosters or help and yes I did get bombs, but must have just had a very lucky board....

Addict said...

I finally won this horrible level by hand switching my sprinkle ball with a stripe, also from booster, early on in the game. Cleared enough and slowed the spawners down. I'm going to need to go back and collect more special candies bc I'm going through the boosters on this episode! I don't have a magic helmet...is that something you can get on iPad version?

michelle mcbride said...

OK either I got a really lucky board or they changed it in the update
Used the helmet and a fish booster thinking I needed lots of fire power...
Easy win... 3 moves left... Moving on

dlouhebidlo said...

color bomb + two manual switches and done on second try :)

Impossible Level

Edward Shorey said...

Posting again in the hope that it will bring a realistic board.

Jennifer Oneill said...

4 days stuck :(

Suzie O said...

The only way I could pass was to start with CB and wrap combo because the wraps help to blow up the evil spawners early on so you have a chance. Also threw in the fish booster which really helped.

Never had a helmet said...

1st try, 3 stars,no boosters.

Anonymous said...

On ipad, with Full Magic Helmet, had 16 moves. Got it first time. I restarted the board several times to have the colourbomb next to the wrapped candy; my first move, the switch of the wrap with the colourbomb, destroyed all but 5 of the jellies and I finished with 11 moves to spare and 2 stars. First time I've not spent days on a superhard level.

Kai Q said...

Passed without booster, em nor helmet. To me, this stage is easier than 2517.

The only way to pass is to use all boosters, reset or switch so sprinkle is next to the wrap, hey presto!!!

Crazy level, next to impossible...ugh

Just waiting fir a lucky board! Not even close!

slychard said...

Wow, on my first try I thought, 13 moves, that's impossible, so I came here to see how many moves they took away only to find out they actually added 3. Unbelievable. So I went back for my second try and pondered hard on using color bomb and wrap Booster and resetting until I got them together with the right mix of color. Instead I went in Booster free and got this one good. Things lined up well for me. Hope it does for you future trckers.

On cc. What's going on. .. can't get close. ..on this stupid level for days

Leslie W said...

Finally, I got down to 2 jellies left and that was all she wrote! I was out of moves and no boosters to use!

Antony Cook said...

In my view, it's levels like 2517 and 2518 that are destroying this game. Not one iota of skill is required, whatsoever. They are totally tedious levels, they are impossible to achieve without a lucky board, so, it seems they are just here to hold you up and frustrate you. You have to wait 30 minutes for a life, for it to last a matter of seconds. How many people quit because of these absolutely boring levels, is that the aim?

Anonymous said...

Probably worse level ever! 10 moves not enough but bombs go off b4 you can even reach 10. JOKE

Anonymous said...

Finally! Used a sprinkle & stripe wrap boosters. Reset til choc bomb near a wrap used a switch to get it next to choc bomb, finally done with this level!

I don't usually post but really???? This has to be the most ridiculous level by far. The bombs make it impossible. Why King??? WHY??? :(

Audrey's mom said...

Ignore the bombs, they only keep you from the last 2 moves. Don't worry about the spawners, just focus on clearing out frosting/licorice etc. If you have the right board, this will cause chain reactions, knock out the spawners, which will in turn knock out the bombs and frosting.

This level is brutal. I cannot get the timed out ones and clear the board. Please help!

After reading the comments here, I used a colorbomb and stripe/wrap boosters. Reset till the colorbomb and stripe were together. Done with moves to spare.

Lorraine said...

Started with sprinkle and wrap together. All over in 2 moves. Only way to go :)

Joanne McVey said...

ticked sprinkle, wrap/stripe and fish... lucky to have sprinkle next to stripe, which got the game of to an achievable start.

I managed to pass this level yesterday, but I received an error, so today I had to do it all over again. FML

Well after playing CC from the start this level has finished me!!
Over 3 weeks on it now, not near to finishing it.
Im off to pastures new, so sad when ive enjoyed the game for many many years.
Goodbye all and good luck.

I have noticed that a lucky board appears after I seek help for a level. This one is a nightmare! Grrrr!

TNC said...

Read the tips and decided to go ahead and use color bomb and stripe/wrap, reset until color bomb was next to a stripe. That opened up the board and managed to blow up one of the spinners. Not too hard after that, I was down to two spinners before any bombs showed up and by blowing up the other spinners that took care of the bombs. Glad to be done with this one!

Judie said...

Once again, posting for luck. Low on boosters so going to take a lot of that luck.

I beat this level on my phone while on a 2 week vacation in June. I won 30 levels during that time and I can't remember how I beat it. Maybe a lucky helmet? I'm now on 2661. However I also play using my wifes login. I've been stuck here since 8-25 and have not even been close. Sigh.

Here's your strategy on this one: try not to fall asleep in the 3 minutes of playing time you'll get.

I can't wrap my mind around how stupid this one is. Their latest thing these days seems to be to drastically reduce the number of moves they give us. They must think they are so clever.

Yeah, my idea of a fun game is one that takes absolutely no strategy, takes 3 minutes to play, and you virtually always lose each time.

Anonymous said...

I won this one starting with all 3 boosters (cb, s/w, and fish). On my first move i was able to make another cb, so then I had two of them. I used one of them to clear out one color. Good luck was on my side then when a stripe landed next to the other cb, and there were a lot of that color on board. Setting that off wiped out a lot of jelly and cleared a couple mixers. Good luck was on my side again when I got a fish next to a stripe, which cleared most of the rest of jelly. Got another fish and made a couple more simple moves, exploded final mixer. Passed with 2-3 moves to spare.

Definitely one of the worst, stupidest level in the whole game! Really wish the game could be made fun again.

This level stinks !

Pfffff boring

After 2 days of playing this level, I've not once got past the bombs. Please, give me something!

Anonymous said...

Wish I had realised how hard it was. On my first attempt I had a sprinkle and wrap and finished with one jelly left. If I had realised how hard it would be I would have purchased a hammer to finish it off! Now I am getting nowhere close. Bombs are ridiculous.

liloldlady said...

Alost impossible without a lucky board

Lynne said...

As a couple earlier posters mentioned, if you can start or reset with a color bomb and wrap and switch together, the move opens up the board and it holds off the bombs for a number of moves. It actually gives you enough moves to elimate the rest. I finished with 9 moves left using that strategy. I didn't see any bombs. The other times I played there were so many bombs I couldn't get close. Give it a shot

Lynne said...

P.S Regarding my post above, There is no way I could have passed this level without boosters

Well I am back watching how Cookie did it again...It feels like I have been on here for a week but it's "only " 3 days. Getting tired of it...tried with a 4th helmet and it didn't do a thing. Getting frustrated over this one...I have come close a couple times...

I've been playing this level for a good few days now ,I think ive been on this level for so long because after playing a few times the flashing bombs makes it uncomfortable so I stop playing but always come back to try again .I pity anyone playing this level who might be sensitive ,it's migraine material ,just wish I could pass and be done with it now ,its not enjoyable .
