Candy Crush Saga Level 3169 Tips and video

Hints and tips showing how to pass level 3169 Candy Crush Saga by Cookie
Having tried many times to pass level 3169 without boosters I had to admit defeat and use a couple of boosters.
I went back to an easy level (2950 is my high level choice) and passed it once to get the colourbomb from the helmet. Then I used a colourbomb booster and reset the game until the two colourbombs were together.
To reset the game, for those who don't know, If you don't like the board when you start the game don't make a move, click on the settings tab bottom left and exit out of the game. Then start again. As long as you make no moves you won't lose any lives or boosters.
The video below will show how I did it and I almost managed to complete the level using just the colourbomb except the game cheated at the end and didn't leave my last two colourbombs together as they should have been.
The only way to clear level 3169, in my opinion, is by using double colourbomb combos, so if you can make them yourself in the first few moves you may be able to pass this without resorting to boosters.
Just keep switching the colourbombs together, often the colourbombs from the popcorns will land side by side so you can use them instead of making your own.
Since there is no video without boosters available at the time of writing I will post my own using minimal boosters.

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.

So difficult this one as the fish eat the sprinkles, making it so hard to get 2 together.

Hard!

Just a reminder, if you want a string of easy wins for the helmet or space dash, you can play level one over and over again. It is a sure win and you only have to play six moves.

Ditto about the fish eating the cbs!!! Made it very difficult. See if you can release the cb in the popcorn without hitting the floats and releasing the fish, so you can get 2cb combos.

Even with a full helmet, i have to take 6 hammers and 2 hands to complete this level. Played several time before, always with full helmet but without more boosts, impossible. Ridiculous level.

OH WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS?!! I've played 3169 at least 50 times with full SD and haven't come close. Think I'm going to need A LOT of hand switches and hammers to finish this one. --

Carla here again. I finally passed this horrid level with full space dash, an additional stripe/wrap in-game booster, and a lot of luck. I reset until the two CB's were together and also made sure that all three of the stripes were HORIZONTAL!! Started by combining the two CBs, and then made as many combos as possible. In the end I had to use one hammer and one hand switch to get another double CB and that finished it off. Very glad to be past this one!! -- Carla F

In case it wasn't clear from my last post, the three horizontal stripes I was talking about were two from the space dash and one from the in-game booster. It took about 20 tries to reset until I had both color bombs together and all three stripes were horizontal. Good luck, everyone! -CF

Passed this with two color bombs and a lucky board. What is it with the fish though? I think they ate most of my color bombs, even with several spaces needing to be cleared. Some kind of fish disease?

Dieter Heinz said...

It is so unfair, here in Spain we don't have a space dash. But you in USA must have Trump je je

Had one left..bought 5 more moves and it ended game without my additional moves. TY CC

Dieter Heinz said...

Wow, first attempt with only 2 hammers. So happy

Carol the elder said...

Good for you, Dieter Heinz! I couldn’t keep two CB’s together to match them and had to start over at least four times. I spun the wheel for extra moves three times and also used several hammers. It was a brutal level and I just wanted to get out and move on.

Can’t get color bombs together. Need help please. Brutal level

COOLpurples said...

Question - when some of you say that you "reset to get color bombs next to each other" - what does that mean exactly? How does that work? Doesn't it use up whatever boosters / color bombs you started with? Thanks for any help you can give me (and others)!

To COOLpurples-- I play on my iPhone. If you look in the lower left corner when you start CC you will see a small round pink icon that looks like a gear. Click the pink gear once and you will see four more icon choices (volume, music, question mark, and reset). Click the red one that looks like a rectangle with a left-facing arrow. That will exit you out of the game without losing a life. You can keep doing this with full space dash until you get both color bombs together. It took me about 20 tries but it eventually worked. BTW I am not able to reset without losing a life when playing on my PC. Good luck! --

After days of playing I couldn't get close even with the space dash. Today the space dash ended and I completed the level first go with no boosters but had to spin the wheel and prayed for it to land on extra moves, which it did, as I just needed one more hit on the last popcorn.

COOLpurples said...

THANK YOU for your response, Carla F! I will try it when there are more levels to play or if I just play some older levels til the new ones come out!!

To reset the game without losing a life or boosters read Miss Cookie's tip as she outlines how to do it very well.

Followed Cookie's advice and reset until I had to CB together, finished with 7 moves left.

veed miller said...

here is what I did after reading all the comments on this page. The two popcorn on the bottom only need to be hit twice. And while trying to hit the popcorn maybe you’ll get lucky and get the Block out from between them. That will make the two chocolate sprinkles fall together. And with luck the fish will not set off the chocolate sprinkles. didn’t use any bonus stuff because I didn’t have any. Played this game for three hours this morning and got nowhere. Combination of lucky board and hitting those two popcorn.

Posting for luck. Thanks for the tips everyone

mrs-baglady said...

Please would somebody tell me What is a Space Dash? What is a helmet? I have got this far without either! How do you get one?????

veed miller said...

Mrs-baglady, I can’t tell you what they are, but I can tell you I don’t get them either. And I’ve tried playing every way that has been suggested to get them. And I can be honest and say , A lot of us just don’t get them. But to my understanding it does make the game a lot easier to play. Other than uninstalling Reloading and starting all over again to see if I would get them. Is just out of the question. I figure were better players that don’t have them.

HARD LEVEL. Posting for luck

No boosters used but you definitely need some strategy. Work carefully to open 2 popcorns one above the other and blockers between so that CB fall on top of each other. Then use 2 CB to hopefully open up board. Then luckily got CB wrap combo a few moves later and then CB stripe a few moves after that. Good luck. It can be done.

Can see me being stuck on this one for days. Top popcorns very hard to clear and it doesn’t help that fish don’t target the popcorns, though they do go for the Colourbombs. Frustrating level.

Not possible

Never had a helmet said...

That wouldn't work for me I have never had space Dash or the helmet. I just win the old-fashioned way with luck or skill.

Never had a helmet said...

2nd try, no boosters used to start with but I did need 2 hammers and a hand switch for the last 2 popcorns. I just tried to make alot of combos.

Bella C said...

The example starts w/ 2 CB and uses a booster... kind of cheap to win that way. I almost got through on first try.... now 10 tries later I am posting for luck!

Marylou said...

Need lots of luck on this one.!!#

I got lucky with 15 extra turns from the wheel but still needed a hand and a hammer. Glad to be through

Marylou said...

Me neither

I actually thought this level was a lot of fun! Took Cookie's advice and started with two color bombs side to side. After that I luckily kept getting side by side color bombs. Passed with 19 moves to spare :-)
