Candy Crush Saga Level 2800 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2800 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie
While not a hard level, level 2800 can be one of the most frustrating!
The priority is to collect keys, don't think about anything else, just make moves that will allow the keys to drop and match them straight away. The keys fall from the dispensers each side of the board and clearing some of the licorice will get them to appear.
The bombs which the keys will unlock have a countdown of only 8 moves, so you have to collect the keys before they count down to zero.
That is the hard part, once you have collected the keys the cherries will drop down and can be collected fairly easily.
The level used to have more moves and a longer countdown on the bombs but has been made significantly harder.
The video below by Skillgaming is actually completed well within the 11 moves although the game started with 17.

If the level you play is different from the one here it is because the developers have changed it since I played and I have no control over this. Please let me know in the comments and I will try to change it.

Absolutly ridiculous..... not at all like the video, with all the choco balls this guy has he must be the luckyest of all time..... cc please fix this.

Danielle said...

Wow only 11 moves for a HARD level.....not even close....

Done. let's the choc eat the key, as if it has been matched.

Coconut wheel if you have it. Helps immensely - hbk

i have 11 moves unlike video which has 17

Ridiculous - 11 moves and the bombs on countdown of 8, IMPOSSIBLE!

MAD WOMAN said...

This level is so ridiculous. Guess I just have to wait until I get a lucky board. Also, the video shown is different than the board I get.

Gil said...

First try started with 2 CBs from the SD - bad strategy.
Second try started with simple move, then used the CBs on the keys colors.
Cascades took more keys and left me enough moves to kill the bombs and bring the cherries down.

Good Luck.

Yes posting for luck the only way to clear this one.

billyrabbit said...

Is this level actually possible since it has been changed? Sick of levels being changed to make them next to impossible until the illusive lucky board appears

Horrible impossible level. Candy Crush is getting low on the fun levels.

Anonymous said...

Omg....first level 2791 and now this. How frustrating. This is not funny at all. I hope CC wil change this game .

Carol the elder said...

I used Gil's strategy with the space dash and had to use gold bars for 5 extra moves, but finally got through it.

Matt Bayley said...

Yeah, Ms. Cookie, just don't post a video. They are never the same, and they get everyone super frustrated.

11 moves with 8 second timers is ridiculous. Why can't I ever get the easy set ups that the video gets?

Another board change that the devs did not test before releasing. This game is getting old.

Posting for luck. That's the only way I'll pass this one

Anonymous said...

Used a coconut wheel for my first move to get a key to drop. Then used the sprinkle balls from space dash to get the next two keys. Got lucky after that. Concentrate only on getting the keys.

Just how many keys are there to collect? I can't even get a fourth key to unlock never mind find a cherry.

Martin said...

Hammer the keys.
I had lots to spare.
But boring.

Emsa8 said...

SAME!!! Why do they invent new levels and then change them immediately and so hard it's nothing but luck

This level just doesn’t make sense at all, we need more than a lucky board. 8 moves to collect 4 keys with licorice blocking and key only come from dispenser one by one ? Even it doesn’t mathematically doable. i have no idea how to pass it without using bunch of boosters with exceptionally good luck....i don’t mind sometimes you guys making super hard level, but at least think about the possibility to pass it. Stop doing the same thing again and again for eliminating your loyalty fans....please

Anonymous said...

Now 11 moves down from 17. Screw you CC. As i’ve Written before, CC will go down to 5 moves on some of these levels and then EVERYONE will quit. This one not possible.

Anonymous said...

I’ve made the only possible moves in numerous boards and get 1 key and the bombs explode. We have gotten to a point where there are only a very few passable boards on most of these levels. To keep playing waiting for “luck” is ridiculous.

LBC said...

Just got a lucky board. It’s not about any skill on this level. It basically just cascaded and hit the keys and the bombs. Silly

Anonymous said...

Need luck please!!!

chksam8963 said...

What kind of stupid level is This? Bomb exploded within 8 moves and we have to clear 8 keys??? Dumb level.

Cookie said...

A lot of people are mentioning 11 SECOND or 8 SECOND bombs...The bombs count down on MOVES, not seconds..
I haven't had time to try to make a new video, but counted the moves on the bombs on the Skillgaming video and it was completed in the countdown and moves.

Ufffffff. Almost impossible

Ridiculous waste of time. Spinning our wheels waiting for a lucky board?? Do we not have anything better to do with our lives? Pitiful. Done.

Impossible. I Will Delete the app.
Not funny annymore

Anonymous said...

Used a coconut wheel and freckle as suggested above. Used a hammer on the last key to release the last two time bombs. Indy

Anonymous said...

Both of these videos used 17 moves to win. And CBs magically form and are next to the color of the hammer you need to get rid of. I've tried to start using boosters a number of times. No matter wh a t it seems I only get 1-3 hammers at most. It just takes enormous amount of total luck? Seems stupid.

Anonymous said...

Ok. Finally did it. Got the keys ..started with a stripe/wrap restart until together and then matched the keys etc (luck too cascades wiping them out) used 1 hammer on the last key and bombs were down to 0. Used the free gold bars I had accumulated enough for bomb cool and the fruit dropped and a couple of moves later i was finished. Used up a lot of boosters previously trying to get it in 11...seemed impossible. Next one is fun and easy. Good luck to all...this one was not fun and set up for you to use gold bars for the bomb cool.

Bevvy said...

I think this level is broken.......

Anonymous said...

This might really do it for me. Since I won't buy boosters I guess I will just continue to play mindless games until I get a lucky board. What fun is there in that? Maybe I should just get a life and delete this effing game.

Booboo said...

I used a stripe/wrap combo and a coconut wheel to start. Reset until stripe/wrap where together and blasted them. It set off the coconut wheel which unfortunately went upwards! But it brought down keys and I aimed at collecting the keys first as previously said. The keys unlock the time bombs which I collected by the time they hit 1. The cherries fell and I was fortunate enough to make a stripe underneath the cherries on my final move, otherwise I’d have used a switch which fortunately I didn’t have to. It is a ridiculous level and no fun whatsoever.
Kings revenues are up on Candy Crush Saga this last quarter but it’s player numbers are down since many have quit and I’m not surprised. They are making more money from fewer players. Perhaps we should all quit!

Anonymous said...

Tried the stripe/wrap combo and coconut wheel once, as suggested by Booboo above, but had no success. Had thought of hammering the keys, but wasn't sure if it would work and didn't want to waste hammers. As Martin above was successful, I tried this method and it worked FIRST GO. And I only had to use 3 hammers. So if you have spare hammers, just use them to get past this absolutely impossible level.

Grandma said...

Lucky board please. It's got to the stage where I need a lucky board all the time. Let's have some fun ones and not timed!

NachtmahrYouDie said...

nonsense level. I'm done with this game.

Kevin said...

Had to booster this one as I wasn't getting close. Started with a colourbomb and Stripe/wrap and the colourbomb was next to the wrap, so good start. Had to use a hammer to get the last key, but the fruits fell nicely on a match that took them both out. Phew.

Ruby Lewis said...

Need a miracle for this one.

What an absolute sod of a level posting for luck!

Anonymous said...

Started with full SD. Reset until 2 wrapped were side by side toward one edge of the board. Crossed these which took care of the liquorice and first key. Still had one CB which I used along with 2 gamers to deal with the others. Plain sailing after that. A small price to pay to get through this level.

Mark Potter said...

Meant hammers not gamers

Anonymous said...

This level has actually got me laughing... its that impossible. Lucky to get 2 keys in 11 moves let along the bombs. I really do have to leave this game its madness

Anonymous said...

Save your lollipop hammers and hand switches until you have enough to get through this level which is easily the worst level. This game is really starting to suck.

Anonymous said...

When the bombs had one move left, I hammered the key, then I hammered the next key (last one - to release the cherries), and then the cherries easily lined up for another move. I had played this level endlessly and didn’t think it was possible.

Dawn Darden said...

Ridiculous level - keys don't drop fast enough!

Are there only lunatics working for King! What is their core-business?? Chasing people away!?? They succeed very well indeed. Madness!!!

Enough. After a respite of timed levels (pre-2700), an onslaught, then this stupidity? Done.

Anonymous said...

For the past few months it seems normal to reduce the moves which makes almost every level hard to beat! I thought we've had redicoulas levels before but this one is going on top of my list. It's only moneybuisness lately for KING.

Marine Hoo said...

this should grade as insane super hard...even if the key just have luck to match every drop..the fruit need to drop to ground and that's need another few move..11 move just not enough

Anonymous said...

Yet another impossible level, lucky board only way to win this level

Anonymous said...

Seriously .. I'm done.. used all my hard earned boosters and not even anywhere close. Bye bye CC

Anonymous said...

At this level you know within 2 moves if you even get a change to finish it!! Very annoying because this level doesn't even need a lucky board but a lot of extra moves as well. Tip????...........quit the game and search for another one that is fun to play and doesn't cost a lot of money!!

Jax said...

I thought it was completely impossible but I got a wrapped/stripe combo on the daily spin and used that. Keep resetting until they are together and they will smash the licorice and create enough cascades to keep the keys falling. I did it with 2 moves to spare, I couldn't believe it!

Anonymous said...

Started with a sprinkle and a coconut wheel. Used either to collect the keys, and got lucky.

Anon said...

Had 2 hours unlimited lives, played this level for over an hour (so probably at least 60+ times), came here to read tips, decided to just keep trying, got a lucky board and passed the level on first go after returning to game. So my hint is to have breaks.

Anonymous said...

Either they changed it or I got a lucky board. Third attempt, no boosters.

lorraine said...

Here we go again. How friggin ridiculous only 11 moves. King really doesnt give a shit about there loyal players or want them to keep playing. I foir one is really over it ;(

Ellie said...

Everyone read Cookies instructions!!
She added that the bombs explode after 8 MOVES not seconds. So plan carefully and get the keys. You can do it

DeeDee Vannoy said...

Got the two hour bonus play reward on my computer and only played this level 5 times before giving up. This is total bulls***.

Anonymous said...

This is listed as "Super Hard Level" on my phone. It's not a Super Hard Level, it's a Friggin Impossible Level!!! I absolutely refuse to pay to pass a level that is OBVIOUSLY set up to frustrate the player so much they say the hell with it and pay to pass it by buying extra lives or boosters. King needs to fix this! It's not possible with only 11 moves and the bombs going off on the 8th move. Absolutely impossible!!!

Anonymous said...

Cookie posting that this person beat the level within the 11 moves even though he starts with 17. That's not correct. We only have 11 moves BUT we also only have 8 MOVES before the bombs explode, therefore if you watch this video you will see that by his 8th move he did NOT have all the bombs released and therefore WOULD NOT have beat this level!

Crusher said...

I don't even want to post for luck because so many people have. I've tried every booster there is including the magic helmet. Nothing. Not even close.

Has anyone passed this with 11 moves and no boosters?? I used my last hammers, and spun the extra move wheel and the last key was on the side and wouldn't move...I'm thinking it's impossible without boosters..

Having read all the comments I started this level with dread.
I used a sprinkle and coconut wheel side by side and swapped them.
Lucky or what? Done first time!
Good luck all!

Did it! No boosters! 7 moves remaining!
Concentrate on the keys and hope for lucky cascades.

Phil said...

They don't come much tougher than this (so far). Not cracked it yet but here's one tip without using boosters. Reset the board until you can make your first match a vertical one on the far left or far right. This ensures the first key falls into the main body of the board and not the edges. Still need loads of luck though to clear the remaining keys with a move a piece. Cleared 4 keys just now but left a 1 bomb. Reckon it's doable but will take some time.

Anonymous said...

I started with all three boosters - chocolate bomb, wrap/stripe, coconut wheel. I reset the board until the coconut wheel and wrap were side by side in the bottom row. I switched them and the resulting explosion, plus chocolate bomb exploding, opened the board and took out two of the countdown bombs immediately. Maybe it was a lucky board after that but the other bombs fell into the center one by one and were taken out as thee of a kind. Both cherries fell into the center and, luckily, I had a stripe right above them that I was able to switch and it pushed the cherries on out. It is doable.

It can't be a game.11 moves.impossible. need luck of course.

Totally impossible with 11 moves and 8 move bombs. I can`t even get the fruit to drop. Doesn`t matter what or how many boosters you use, used up all my swaps and hammrs on this level. Gotta be a glitch. Please fix King CC!!!!

Just stupid.... only a lucky board will eventually do it.. have tried over a hundred times in an hour and not got even close... i refuse to buy stuff from King, so i'll give it a week and then I may be done...it's not even an entertaining hard level...it's just ...mank!

I had 2 colour bombs on the Golden Helmet. I was lucky that when the board opened they were side by side. I combined them and cleared all the licorice and the 1st key fell out.
I play PC so I can't reset, but for those of you who can I would suggest trying for 2 CB side by side.
Good luck.
