Candy Crush Saga Level 2838 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 2838 Candy Crush Saga without boosters by Cookie

Because there are only three colours in level 2838 the candies cascade endlessly around and around through the portals and special candies keep forming and detonating.
The cascades do eventually stop, but the game can go on for endless minutes before they do.
You will not get any new lucky candies while the cascades continue so it is really just wasting time and racking up points.
The best way to beat level 2838 is to use a lucky candy booster. The lucky candies will keep dropping as the candies cascade and eventually all the orders are collected while you go and make a cup of tea.
I have not posted a video as it too over 20 minutes to complete the level and no one wants to watch candies cascading endlessly.

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.

The bombs got me quite a few times. I don't think there's any strategy to this board. There are so few available moves that you basically wait for a lucky board and the game plays itself through cascades. I'm not a fan of this level at all.

Lucky board definitely needed!

Lucia said...

I guess I'm very unlucky, then. Pure luck needed here.

Not much strategy used here. The bombs can get you if the board fills up with licorice. Third time lucky and lots of cascades. Finished with nine moves left.

First one this episode I couldn’t get first try - even with boosters and extra time. Guess I’ll play without boosters and hope for that lucky board. And the next one is supposed to be the super hard one!

Nigel said...

Welcome back, Lucia

What is the point of this board. They must be running out of ideas!!!

This level is crazy and impossible. No skill really needed but never even close.
May be the end of Candy Crush for me.

No skill required,just luck. Frustrating level.

Fun level at first, but now tedious. Posting for luck!

Carol the elder said...

The space dash starts it off well, but after that it's all luck I got it on the third try and used one swap to get a count down bomb out of the way.

Van5 said...

Not having any luck with this one. Bombs keep killing my game when the licorice gets in the way. Just have to wait for that lucky board, good luck everyone!

Jake said...

Boring level, only luck no skills. Till now the bombs go off, or still 200 candies to go at end of game. We had some nice levels but this is crap again.

Haven’t played it yet. Watched the video. What a stupid level.

jackydilley said...

I'm guessing only a lucky board will crack this one......not a lot of skill needed King

NotTheFirstTry said...

Not mere luck when you follow Cookies advice "all you need to do is keep the candies cascading and to do this you need wrapped candies." Don't use wraps with stripes or make stripes. Boosters also not helpful. Wraps are the solution. After around 5-10 attempts had one (!) candy left, after the next 5-10 attempts succeeded with 2 moves left.

Helen said...

Ridiculous, boring level!

Anonymous said...

Luck only. Will either continue cascading or it won’t. Played it a dozen or so times. No decent board yet.

Anonymous said...

wow got this 1st go with full space helmet. thought if would've been impossible so must have got the lucky board.

Anonymous said...

Don't quit now...only 578 more candies to get. Lol. No luck and played many times...best I've done so far still had 70+ candies left but did not try for the +5...maybe should have. Oh well

What a crap level. Stuck for five days. And today i can't even kill the bombs before the explode. Getting so angry that stopping this game seems the only option. Its a shame and a pity.

I agree this is the most asinine boring level ever waiting for pure luck, not one ounce of skill required. Crushers who have gotten this far deserve better than this!

Third day on this level..... I must be missing something. Either the 2 count bombs get me or I need 100 plus blue or green. Totally bored.

starting 5 days ago......
how long does it take till the lucky board comes along?
Can't do anything by myself.......just waiting and hoping.

Anonymous said...

Took me about a dozed tries. Absolutely no skill involved; you just have to wait until you get moves with enough cascades to take care of several hundred blue and green candies. The game I won, I went from 544 candies to go with six moves remaining, down to 65 candies to go with five moves left. In a few earlier games, I would get a couple hundred points on one move, but it was not enough (or of course I'd have moved on to the next level). But I didn't sweat it, just kept collecting the sugar candies toward additional boosters. I only lost to bombs a few times.

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

I can get within 200 with boosters, 100 with out!! So bored!! This is definitely a lucky board win only!! Or BUY EXTRA MOVES!!! Either way, it sucks!!

A2 said...

Wow.

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

This level pretty much plays itself!! I can only collect 300 blue & green candies!! Boosters don't work. The only way is a lucky board or BUY GOLD BRICKS to buy extra moves!! I don't think it's a coincidence piggy bank filled with gold bricks is the special buy!!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

Another day at this level!! I can only collect 300 of the 400 needed!! So bored with this tedious level!! I am not buying more boosters!

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

Day 3 on this level. Best I can do is 300-340!! Boosters are wasted!! I need extra moves!! I can spin for free extra moves, but the spinner never lands on free extra moves!!! Coincidence that there's a sale on gold bricks to purchase extra moves??!!! I am not buying more boosters!!!

Kevin said...

What....is....the....point????

Kevin said...

Ha ha, got it on the very next turn after posting above. Just sat back and it played itself. Ridiculous. Ah well, onward...

Cherrelle Piotraschke said...

And of course the free spin DID NOT land on 5 extra moves!! No lucky board!! It's worse!! I can't clear more than 200!! What a joke!!

Anonymous said...

No one else has mentioned this, but this is not the same game on my iPad as it is on my computer. What’s up with that?

Stuart Nicholson said...

800 candies in 15 moves = 53+ candies per move. Max 15 candies on board at any time = clearing each square 3.5+ times (not including licorice) per move. No matter what your "strategy", this level relies on dumb luck. Tedious and annoying.

Tammy Agosta said...

I just wanted to come back and let you guys know that they repeat this level at 2882 but you only have 13 moves instead of 15!

Een vrouw said...

Utterly boring and stupid, this one.

bluemoon said...

Stupid level. Lucky board only way to get thru.

bluemoon said...

Not good news.

bluemoon said...

Did the Magic Dash so started with boosters and 18 moves. First shot cascaded big time. Finished with 7 moves spare.

Whoever made this stupid level really needs there hands smashed over and over with a hammer so they can never make another one!

LynnKaiser07 said...

I can’t see where there’s any skill involved with this level! Tedious and boring, without any real rhyme or reason. This has to be the worst level ever!

LynnKaiser07 said...

Still struggling. Does anyone, who were lucky enough to pass this one, have any suggestions other than wait for a lucky board? Please help! Thanks Crusher Friends!

??? Completely different on my ipad, have to collect yellows chocs and blocks ?

Anonymous said...

So I’m just getting to this level now & it is completely changed on my android phone.
You have to collect 28 chocolate, 46 blockers & 12 yellow in 35 moves.
Still a very difficult level, you have to clear blockers to get the check candies to fall, & deal with bombs & chocolate spawners.
The chocolate is fairly easy to get but after a couple dozen tries I’m constantly coming up short on the other orders.

Craxymama said...

What an idiotic level, mine is still cascading at over 29 million...collecting orders with no time for the chocolate spawners to make chocolate. DUH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My game finished half an hour ago but is still doing the 'last hurrah!'

Anonymous said...

This is not my board set up entirely different and the continual cascading of exploding speckled bombs and many others it takes 4 plus mins for it to stop then I make another moves starts it all over I only have a couple more to get but the board won’t quit exploding At least when it happens at end I can skip it but not when u have moves left And it’s a way different t board thanshown above

Paulette Cambra said...

Well, this level is just stupid! After reaching a score of over 122928260 I needed one more item! I had to buy five acres moves to finish because I will never play that level again!

Joanne McVey said...

Hi Cookie and my fellow addicts,
the game sure is different to what you have here.
Totally different board and objectives. I think King is having a bit of a laugh with this one. Glad I am holidays because I think it's going to take all day to lose just one game!
Anyone starting the game, I suggest you don't blow up the chocolate too soon.
Good luck.

Joanne McVey said...

I also suggest starting with a lucky candy.. because the yellows and meringue blockers are scarce.

Anonymous said...

When collecting the ingredients, try to let the chocolate spread and don't collect chocolate too early. Once the game starts cascading, it's hard to control and you have to wait for all of the explosions to finish. Try to let the lucky candies come down without causing big cascades. Never switch lucky candies with each other...in this level it is better to make safe moves. I finally used a lucky candy booster; I got more lucky candies dropping that way than by waiting for them to fall out of the dispensers. My final score was over 10 million! 10,303,180!!!

Anonymous said...

What is goIng on here. Totally different game to that explained at the start. Have had to exit every time as score in millions and cascade won’t stop. Yes obviously let the chocolate spread!! But with only 4 colours of candy impossible not to make matches. This really is beyond boring. Oh well time to get on with Christmas and ditch the CC

Anonymous said...

Ok so here’s how to do it. Firstly add a tick candy. Then play only making moves of 3 matches and avoiding the chocolate where poss. I managed to collect all but 1 choc before the cascade started. Now we have hours of cascading. Your tick candies will complete your yellow and icing orders. When you’ve completed the orders the cascades will run for about another hour. I left my iPad runnng and went out for a coffee. On my return the game had clocked up 150 million points and also over7000 points for the challenge (yippee). But it was finished. It is a shame that you have to leave it for Such a long time especially when you were looking forward to 30 minutes play.

I don't know what's going on but I have a different game, noted by Cookie, and I only came here to say I got thins on first try and it was fun for a change!!

I'm never this lucky, good luck crushers!

I just posted the comment above and the game won't stop, keeps exploding and up over 8 million points, how do I get this to stop :( wow this is a bug.

I'm NOW on 100 million, will this ever end???? I tried on PC and PHONE and I cannot proceed, WTH do I do ?? KING you really F$%^&*() this up!!

Suzie O said...

There is only one trick to this level... start with a check/tick booster!! This will make all the difference believe me. I happened to have space dash so I started with two color bombs together and that was THE ONLY MOVE I MADE!!

During the cascades my check booster kept showing up and before I knew it I had collected all the orders. I played on a Thursday and all the stripes during cascades counted toward the stripe contest. The sugar crush went on for an hour but I just watched t.v. and at the end I had 800 stripes from that one game. I used to like 1955 for the stripe contest but this is better because you don't even have to play, lol

wendy green said...

What a stupid game scored millions still cascading after 20 mins but none of the things needed have appeared anywhere still got 23 moves left but still cascading, rubbish King

katericia said...

media hora viendo como se forman cascada pero no cae ningún caramelo de la suerte :(

RM said...

All you need is one booster - a lucky tick candy. It will do the job. Once you open the board a bit, it will complete itself with heaps of time to have a nap! Got it on the first try.

Jenn Krystowski said...

Whoever created this board needs to be fired! I got it on the first try. However, it took TWO HOURS for the board to complete because the candy kept cascading and creating the boosters. My final score was 153 MILLION. I almost went into candy crush retirement!

Anonymous said...

mine too I am just looking to see afraid to end game incase it goes wrong bored with waiting, still got 3 moves lrft!!!!

After completing the level with sugar crush the game is playing on its own and not stopping. How do I go to next level please help

Tammy said...

Eventually went back to an early level to collect “c” candies and win myself a “tick”candy as suggested. Orders were cleared with 25 moves to spare. Current score 50;million and still cascading...Damn level won't stop and my free hour of play is just about finished :/

Anonymous said...

Most rediculous one so far. CC drains the batteries without this stupid game, really drains with this one, Get rid of it!

Rob Lett said...

After I won the level it continued cascading literally an hour and a half, lol. I was tempted to back out and try again but I waited it out and finally moved to next level. I just watched tv and waited. Frigging ridiculous, they need to fix this bug.

Finally stopped after an hour and a half. Final score 208,885,180.

On my phone it just keeps going on and in and on and won’t stop. I’ve updated, done everything I can think of but I guess I’m stopping at this point as I can’t go and further. It won’t let me !

Rhodesia said...

Mine hardly cascaded at all; finished it easily in about 4 minutes. The only problem was keeping an eye on the bombs. 203702 scored only. Perhaps I was lucky!
