Candy Crush Saga Level 2686 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2686 Candy Crush Saga without boosters By Cookie
You have to collect the 4 cherries in 40 moves to complete level 2686 Candy Crush Saga.
The first 2 cherries are on the board at the start of the game and the remaining 2 will drop as you get them off the board so you can only have 2 cherries on the board at a time.
Wrapped candies are the best for growing the popcorns to give you the colourbombs which will help unlock the locked candies and collect the cherries.
Switch a colourbomb with a wrapped candy or a striped candy for best effect, this will help grow more pocorns as well as unlock and collect the cherries.
This is by no means an easy level as moves are restricted to the left side of the board, so take care with your moves and try to work close to the bottom of the board if possible.

My upper right cherry won't move. I have repeatedly gotten the other three cherries to drop off the board, but that one won't budge. Any ideas? I can't switch it, so I am stuck...

I have the same issue as Lisa

Laurent Pierre said...

I had the same issue as Lisa with firefox on fedora 25.
But it works if I use chromium and flash plugins provided by adobe.

Upper right cherry won't drop for me neither. Tried playing both HTML5 Facebook version and Windows 10. King must not QA their own levels to let bugs like this slip through.

king forum say they already fix the prb bur mine still same cherry stuck in the right corner, stupid CC

I have the same issue with the cherry getting stuck at the top , extremely annoying .

Anonymous said...

My last one will not drop also

Anonymous said...

Same thing. Wake up cc!

Unknown said...

I guess we will all have to either twiddle our thumbs or move on to a new game until they finally fix this

The same issue: right cherry is not moving! Used all my 200 golden bars and all bonuses! Very disappointed in CC !

CC from vero said...

Just came onto iPad. I have helmet boosters and first 3 a piece of cake- thought it was me till I came here. Stopped before I was out of moves so guess I'll just wait for a fix!! That upper right cherry won't budge!!!

Livia Saunders said...

Glitch with upper right cherry not falling on my smart phone.
Please fix as soon as possible, thank you.

What a waste of time! As what the rest mentioned, the right side cherry didn't budge at all! Why does this keep happening when they release new levels on android n ipad? They should checked it properly first! So many bugs lately. Really disappointed with the creators.

You can make it fall. You have to hit a sprinkle with a stripe and get a vertical stripe under the cherry.

My upper right is stuck also on iPad. Plus one lower doesn't drop down from the right side with all stripe hits making only the left side drop.

Marion Louise said...

Top right cherry will not budge!!

II am joining the crowd. Right cherry will not budge. Have used a ton of boosters!

Anonymous said...

Definitely a glitch.......I have gotten down to one cherry remaining twice now. The. First time the cherry was stuck midway down and it wouldn't budge even after hitting the candies below it with a candy hammer.......waste of a hard earned booster. The second time it didn't move from the top spot. NOT gonna waste my time on this game any longer until this is fixed. CC shoiidnt be releasing new levels until they are tested.....they only release 15 new levels a week. How hard can that be to test.

4th cherry won't drop...guess I'm quitting until they fix this

Unknown said...

Glitch so annoying

Claire said...

Same here, the cherry won't move... lost losts of boosters trying to move it, to remove the underneath candy, but to no use, that top right cherry just won't budge. Why bother trying again now that I realize it's the same problem with everyone else!! Does CC even read our comments here? They should! Arghh is this to slow us down?

I also had the right cherry sit at the top for multiple games, so for one game I decided to get as many sugar drops as I could. With each colorbomb I matched it with a stipped candy. After doing this four times, suddenly the cherry had moved and I was able to complete the game. Stripped candies had hit it many times before it started moving.

Gil said...

Don't give up, it eventually moved for me after 5 or 6 tries.
Start with 2 CBs combo (from the MD) if you can, it gives the best chance to complete.

The same issue: right cherry is not moving!

Baking_Pan said...

Hire me as a tester! I have experience! (Yup - same problem on iOS app version)

Indeed, that works.
Combine sprinkles with stripes of the same color as candies under the cherry. Since only vertical stripes will work, it may be necessary to do several such combos. That's why it's better to "save" the sprinkles instead of detonating them imediately.

Ann said...

I was having the same problem with the right cherry but suddenly, don't ask me how, it moved and I passed the level. I used one of each boost I had and created as much chaos as possible. That's all I know. Lucky! Moving on…

Unknown said...

I had double color bomb combo AND made a vertical stripe under the right cherry and still nothing. Glad for those of you who got lucky but this is DEFINITELY a glitch

Rosalye said...

Impossible on IPad even with full space dash. Got on PC with no boosters. 3 stars 1st time! That's the way to go on this one.

Anonymous said...

This level is very annoying. 2nd time I tried the 4th cherry was halfway down and I didn't use boosters before I ran out of moves. Now I can't get it to drop from top right.
Also, this is not a combination level so we should have the option of using a coconut wheel.

I switched to PC and passed, although it did take about 15 or more tries with no boosters or helmets, etc. I enjoyed the pc game as it made lots of speckle balls so there was always hope.

Can't get right corner cherry to move even with several double chocolate sprinkles. Can't use hand switch. Stumped!

Anonymous said...

I came here to see if it was just me but nope, others are having the same issue with the 4th cherry not budging from the top right. Ridiculous. :(

Van5 said...

I guess I am very lucky! Took me about 6 tries, but finally got them all down. Colourbombs on single colours, then I was lucky enough to get a stripe/colourbomb combo twice and the last 2 came tumbling down. Good luck everyone!

Anonymous said...

Finally! After many, many tries I used a Chocolate Sprinkle combo and after some more moves got another Chocolate Sprinkle combo. This time it was located in the very bottom row and when I swiped them the angle that it hit the top right cherry it dropped right out and halfway down. Finished with 20 moves left. Good Luck!

The cherry in top right corner will not drop. I guess this hasn't been fixed

Please fix top cherry glitch

Anonymous said...

I finally passed this level after several times having the right cherry stuck at the top. What I discovered is if the 4th cherry comes out of the left dispenser, it will not get stuck. The second and third cherry were at the bottom of the board with one candy below each of them just above the exits. One had a green candy and one had a blue. On the left side of the board I was lucky to have a sprinklle bomb and had the option of hitting either green or blue. I picked the color below the cherry that was above the left exit hoping that the 4th cherry would fall from the left dispenser at the top (instead of the right) and sure enough it did. So maybe that is the trick to this level. Good luck everyone. You made it this far. I know it's frustrating when they throw something like this at us, but you can do it. Hope my suggestion works for you.

Latha Iswar Prasad said...

Similar problem. The upper right cherry is stuck. Fix it.

Dieter Heinz said...

Horror horror and horror

Lisa Myrick said...

OMG!! CC really!! Isn't there enough comments advising of this issue, why haven't you fixed it? This is getting so frustrating, every week a different level is messed up! I used all my gold bars and boosters, I'm starting to think that is your mo!! Eeerrr! Unfortunately we are stuck until you decide to fix it since no amount of boosters can get you to beat it!! Why do I keep playing this??? Ugh!

Anonymous said...

Agree! Are we idiots to keep playing this game?????!!! Fix the right cherry so that it drops or make an ending to this game. You've turned a fun game into a giant waste of time.

Anonymous said...

Same problem as most everyone else. On the iPad,the upper right cherry will not drop. I've used sprinkle ball combos and sprinkle balls with wraps and stripes. It will not budge!

Posting for lucky board, Mouse

Lucia said...

Yep, right cherry won't move for me either. Must be nice to be Cookie.

Finally made it! Managed to get the 4th cherry to come out of the left dispenser, then it did not get stuck.

The cherry from the right side dispenser is not moving for me either... Have these guys from King tested the game before deployment? I don't think so...

Roger75 said...

Passed... I think the problem occurs only with the fourth cherry if it drops from the right dispenser (as someone said above).

Lucia said...

It finally did just now. I did nothing different. Moving on.

Unknown said...

Well, if there's no way to get the right cherry to drop, what is the point of playing.

Don't use Fish booster: Fish eat candies on left side instead of cream, licorice or anything useful.
Fish Booster is rigged.

Anonymous said...

There you go, just after posting about the Fish Booster being useless... next round I passed with a lucky board cooperating with the sprinkle ball

Anonymous said...

Right cherry doesn't drop at all, posting for luck !

Anonymous said...

Same issue as all above. I even had a sprinkle and stripes and right cherry didn't drop for me. How do you force it to come out of the left dispenser?? Mine always starts each game with a cherry in the right dispenser!!!

Anonymous said...

Same problem as everyone else! The right cherry won't move! No matter how you hit the board it just stays at the top! I used a switch twice to get two sprinkles together, and still nothing! Very frustrating when you get a glitch like this!! Please fix this King!!!!!

Right cherry still not moving. IS KING reading these comments!!!!????? Come on!! Do something about it please or you will lose a lot of "gamers"!!

Anonymous said...

I was expecting a nightmare after reading all your comments but I passed it easily on the 3rd go. No problem with stuck cherries, I just kept getting colour bombs and matching them with the locked candies. When I got the final candies at the bottom all four candies fell out. Hope everyone gets through soon.

Alexius Pereira said...

i suspect a couple of updates have taken place. on android, as of today, there are no more timer bombs (there used to be). but right cherry still gets stuck. update your app.

on facebook pc, no bombs, and cherries do not get stuck.

Lady Di said...
