Candy Crush Saga Level 2546 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2546 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
Level 2546 is classified as a hard level so you can expect to lose a few lives before you manage to pass it.
The fishing floats can be useful, but can't be relied on too much to clear the jelly that needs to be cleared as they tend to target the jelly in the top part of the board first.
The best, and I think only, way to clear the jelly in the bottom part of the board is by using colourbomb combos. You need at least one colourbomb/wrap combo and that will only work well if you have candies the right colour in the top row of jellies in the bottom part of the board. If the wraps you make are in the bottom row they won't touch the jellies in the top row so they will not be cleared.
You can try a colourbomb/stripe combo but this is not as good and won't clear as much jelly.
Also if there are wraps next to the floats from the CB?wrap combo you will get some fish which will mop up the remaining jellies.
I had no luck with this level so used boosters, but the video below shows the level being passed without boosters.

I have lost more than a few lives here. Waiting for a lucky board.

if you have magic helmet, load another color bomb, restart until you have two bombs side by side. PH

OK you win , I'll stop playing. It's obviously what you want.
You have about 1 chance in a 1000 to get past this level.

It's hopeless without boosters but the magic helmet had gone by the time I got here. Tried the stripe/wrap and cleared all the bottom section first go but couldn't get decent matches to clear the top. Tried again and cleared the board with three stars.

What is a magic helmet?
And how to people 'reset' the board?
Why don't I have these options?

Anonymous said...

WORD OF WARNING! If you are playing on a device that you can't re-set, ie. pc, don't use boosters. Twice I've added the colorbomb booster and it wound up in the bottom section. I will have to wait until next Wed. to play this level on android so the boosters will benefit the game. sigh.

To Anonymous at 8:55, the magic helmet is a booster you get by playing on a device like a smartphone or tablet, it's not offered on a pc. By passing a game without losing a life, you get to start the next game with a color bomb already on the board, pass again and you get color bomb and striped/wrapped, third game 3 additional moves. If you play on other devices you can reset the game without losing a life if you don't like the look of the board you are given.

I'm have a very hard time with this one too! My question is, how are you playing this level on your iphone? On my iphone, it's not available yet? :( King, you really outdid your self on this one!!! Please let us enjoy this game!

Anonymous said...

This one is nasty! My question is how do you get to the bottom of the board thru the licorice???

Anonymous said...

Okay King, the negative review is going on play store for this one. FIX THIS STUPID LEVEL!!

Anonymous said...

I play on pc, so no magic helmet. if I start with fish or choc bomb they are on the bottom of the board so useless as I can't reset. My android phone is not up to this level. Unless I can fix any of these (which I don't think I can)I give up until I can play on android. maybe in the meantime i'll find something else to get hooked on

Anonymous said...

For people playing on PC, is it played in browser, APP, or standalone program?
i recently started to play it on a cheap win10 tablet, it is an app just like on ios or android.
at the beginning, i didnt have magic helmet, but i have it now. i can also restart game without loosing life.
it is 1 to 2 episodes ahead of android phone, for now, i am at level 2565 running out of all boosters and lives. PH

vreselijk wat een schijtlevel hier moet je zoveel gfeluk bij hebben ben al tientallen levens kwijt dus candy crush aub past u dit level beetje aan

Here we go again with yet another piece of shit level brought to you by the sadists at King! King seems to favor levels that require LUCK to beat them as is obvious by this crap level. I think I'll quit for a week or two. No pleasure to be had playing a game that is designed only to frustrate the players. Nice going king.... slowly kill interest in the game with poorly designed boards that chance players away. What a poor business model!

15.18 comment, you cant get thru the licorice.
You need to make 2 or 3 colour bombs in the moves given.
Basically its all about getting shit loads of luck.

TO: Anonymous that wrote to use the helmet.. the helmet is only on iphone or android tablet.... and this level is not on those yet so... why are you writing this. NOT helpful at all...

Cybelle said...

Posting for luck...

Cybelle said...

TIP: I got it after paying very attention to the video above, clear as many jelly on top as possible, then as soon as you make a combo the fish goes on the bottom part. After paying close attention to the video I got it the second try. Good luck to you all.

Anonymous said...

hate those level with fish cause most of the time the fish are useless~

Cybelle...it's all about luck....

So that's how! I was mystified by your top post about playing this level with the helmet which yet isn't available on mobils. Thank you, PH for taking time to explain:)

slychard said...

Ugh! Charlie Brown! I used every Booster to start and reset until the bomb was next to the wrap. After many reset I got all cleared at the bottom but AL the computer kept me 5 squares from vallhallah. Thanks for pulling the football from underfoot Lucy.

slychard said...

Here's how I got through the level. As posted above I used all boosters. Unlike first try I got most cleared but two at bottom but this turned out to be a blessing. As I worked my way through the top I was down to two. It's hard to differentiate what needs to be cleared underneath them thick blockers sometimes when under the influence of beer. Counted 2 at bottom so used 2 hammers. Voila!

So boring!

niko the wolf said...

I have reset and Magic Helmet on my laptop. Did not used too. Started about a week ago. I am using Chromebook.

Anonymous said...

Please CC give me a lucky board this one is not going to please to many of us.

Anonymous said...

I seriously thought I'd just have to save up like 20 hammers or something. But after watching the video I knew a color bomb/wrap was the only way this hell was going to end. I had to use a couple of "hand switch" boosters to line it up correctly, and I had 6 lollies in reserve, but I didn't have to use the hammers. It's finally done! I seriously thought it would never happen. - hbk

Another crap level created by the sadists at King. Why do they insist on creating levels which require luck in order to beat the level???
And then I have to see the stupid "Fun Meter". It's no fun wasting hundreds of lives on a level waiting for a lucky board!

Also, from what I have read in some posts it sounds like extra boosts are available to players using Android's.... What's a Magic helmet, I have never seen one. I play on a PC, and I'd like to know why? How is that fair?

stuck on this level for 3 days now. Very frustrating. Once I got to only 2 blocks left. I wished I crushed them with my 2 hummers. I really don't know why I didn't. I can't even come close to winning now. I know I could beat it on Wednesday with the helmet but sure hope to beat it on PC. So please Cookie, send me lucky boards till I beat this before I go crazy and delete this game. (then lose all my saved up boosters and regret. have done so in a past)

Anonymous said...

Have probably played 200 times? Closest I've been is TEN left. Geez! Waiting for Wednesday and magic helmet on iPphone

Anonymous said...

Grrr! Usually after I beg for a good luck here, I do get the winning board. But not this time yet. I'm still stuck and used up all my starter boosters. I think it is horrible that they decided the stripe candy don't break the blocks in the bottom. I am so tired of playing this level.

CC we are tired of this garbage please change this or give us a lot more lives.
Thankyou.

fish are useless horrible level speechless

This is easily the WORST level yet! I have been trying for a week! Totally ridiculous! Seriously, the goal must be to get us to stop playing!

Anonymous said...

if this is what CC want to let us stop playing guess we should go and find another game, this lever sucks been trying for more than 100 times not even close. no point playing games to make myself angry

Anonymous said...

DUMB. They should change the name of this game to Aggravation because the only things getting crushed are our nerves. Whoever made this level needs to go back to making casino boards.

Anonymous said...

I did it! Yes! After 4days of misery and 2 posts here begging for help, I finally was given the lucky board that 2 sprinkles appeared next to each other! Thank you, Ms. Cookie. I started with no boosters but did use a lollipop to crush the very last jelly. My advice is "Post a comment on this site" then your lucky board will appear. PC/1 lollipop/3 stars

Got this message from King regarding this level;

Thank you for contacting King Customer Care.
Our Developers are constantly monitoring our games and take many factors into consideration when making any updates to the game.

Every level is always thoroughly tested to make sure that it offers the right balance of challenge and fun and some levels are deliberately a lot more challenging than others - this is part of the game design and the fun!

We also keep a very close eye on player feedback relating to level difficulty, and the Studios study data from our network of players to see whether any levels are perhaps a bit too demanding. With all of this taken into consideration they may, at times decide to make a certain level more or less difficult in the future.

Thank you again for the feedback and rest assured that I've passed your comments onto the Studio.

Kind regards,

Andrea

Another stupid level of mindless clicking!

This level has killed the game for me as i see no way out. Played over 50 times and i can barely make a sideways stripe nevermind a combo. It's very unfair that boosters get thrown on the bottom where they can't be used!!!!

lala said...

got to admit I am getting pretty frustrated with this level. If King does monitor this site, they will see that the levels that are bad a fraught with hundreds of comments. Idon't complain but.... I await my lucky board

lala said...

and as a postscript to above comment, the best i've done is 7 jellies left. Urgh

Anonymous said...

And King, if you do monitor this bulletin board, why not consider removing a couple of layers of icing off these blocks and don't make the licorice fall each time it's cleared. seriousl.y

Absolutely ridiculous!
Have lost many, many lives n boosters. Still not even close. We all have reached past 2500 games so we are not amatuers here. Boring level! Adios!

Has anyone seen a board even close to the one in the video. How many times did "Cookie" play this game before getting that board. What a joke!!!

Anonymous said...

CC ce niveau est complètement RIDICULE et n'a aucun intérêt parce qu'on ne peut rien faire pour le réussir. Tout dépend de la chance. Pas de félicitations à celui qui l'a conçu c'est trop débile.

Anonymous said...

What a complete waste of time and effort it is to even try and complete this level. Most games I don't even pop 1 jelly on the bottom. boosters are a waste of space as they always come out at the bottom so activating them is almost impossible. I really hope King do monitor feedback and make this a bit more sensible than it is as soon as possible

Van5 said...

Finally got this on about the 6th try. Started with a colour bomb and stripe/wrap combo. Moved the stripe next to the colour bomb. There were 6 candies of the stripe colour in the bottom so it cleared a lot of jelly. Was able to get stripes on the middle row to hit the fishing floats twice which cleared the rest of the jelly. This was a really tough level. Thank goodness for boosters. Good luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

Chocolate sprinkle/wrap combo with quite a few of same color as wrap in bottom section. This took lots of resets but was well worth it as cleared the whole bottom. First try used chocolate sprinkle combo didn't work as well. Second try with 10 moves left and three stars.

If you are resetting or using magic helmets you really don't need to post, it's about as helpful as telling us the sun is yellow. Awesome you get to make your own lucky board though if that's what you're looking for. This level is the WORST.

Aron said...

Or you can just not read it!

carlton said...

BTW the sun is not actually yellow. .just saying

Anonymous said...

actually, the sun is a yellow star with a luminosity of 1 and a temp of 5500 K. If you look up the hertzsprung russell diagram, you will see that the sun is indeed a yellow star. Just saying

I've been stuck here for DAYS and i can't take it anymore!!! Even if there was no licorice i still wouldn't pass. This level is seriously flawed.

Dieter Heinz said...

I took all my booster, ball, wrap/stripe, fish and reloaded the game until I had a ball/wrap combo with a good color. Level passed

Anonymous said...

useless level, not getting anywhere close. Starting to hate waiting and waiting and waiting for lucky boards, not enough boosters! good luck all!

Anonymous said...

Been stuck for days and hoping for that lucky board!

So what color is the moon?

Never had a helmet said...

4th time was a charm. 3 stars and I used all 3 boosters.
Still can't figure out how to get the helmet.

Hard level, posting for luck!

didueverdoubtme said...

It is available on mobiles. Comes into play now and then but you need to win in first attempt at level before so it carries across to the next level..given how hard this level is if you dont win first attempt u lise helmet

didueverdoubtme said...

Omg just posted above giving feedback on helmet and hoped it would give me luck. Only got on this yesterday. Today i got down to 3..so i just tried again. Color bomb on wrap cleared nearly all botyim. Then wrap stripe left me with one and no lollipops left. Spun wheel as it just became avaliable and didnt win moves. Spun wheel hoping i would hv enuff gold bars..i did..won 5 moves..omg intense and luck was able to make a color bomb and all over..no boosters! But without extra moves I'd be still struggling along. Good luck. Don't give up and if u hv wheel available be sure to use it wisely if like me u r out of boosters.

Anonymous said...

Super stupid level. The fish are no help at all.

Edward Shorey said...

Really have to start questioning the creative ability of the programmers of this one. When a level can only be completed with a very specific one off combination and you just have to go over and over and over again to try to get it, if is not fun anymore. I had this with Level 480 of Alphabetty and decided to delete the game as the level was so ridiculous. I don't want to give up on the Candy Crush as it has been fun but if King start to produce too many ridiculous levels they will lose players.

Shlomit said...

i did it!!! just try again and again,until i have lucky mooves.

Edward Shorey said...

Well done, I'll stick st it for a bit longer!

So the level has wrap and stripe dispensers on the pc version but not IOS

Could I please get a lucky board to get thru this level? Thx

Redjam said...

I play on mobile only..I get the magic helmet too..usually between Tuesday & Thursday and usually when I don't need it because I finished the latest saga. But this level has me stumped...might just have to wait for that magic helmet next week 😑

Redjam said...

And I posted here went back & played & got it with 3 stars...

Cher said...

This level is so bad . We have had bad ones before but this one takes the cake .
Not very interested in even playing this one . I know it can be done but not without help from CC lucky board.
So go ahead and put me out of my misery as that is all this one is .

Esther said...

Didnt take crazy long, lost a fair few lives, but managed to get a color bomb and a wrap, together with a few more fishes that did the trick

Suzie O said...

Lala... you being a teacher I'm surprised that you think that there is a chance in hell that King monitors this board. Millions of people playing all around the world and a million help boards and you think King is going to pay an employee to read what a couple hundred people at this site have to say?
