Clash of Clans is for sure the most successful mobile game of all times with still dozens of millions of active players all over the world competing against each other – so no surprise people are searching for hacks or cheats that will give them free Gems or resources to boost their villages.
Are you one of them? Great, you’re at the right place and I will give you here the top hacks & cheats that work in Clash of Clans (and also those that do not so keep your hands off them to not lose your account in a ban or worse).
In this article, you will get hidden tips that only a few Clashers now plus a ton of tips how you get free Gems for sure.
The Hacks & Cheats in Clash of Clans That Work & Don’t Work
First of all, you can max out everything in Clash of Clans without spending a single cent of real money on Gems, I play the game since 2013 every day so you can be sure that I know what I’m talking about!
Chief, let’s start.
Online Generators & Hack Tools
The most famous hack for Clash of Clans out there is this one here:
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, you can check out one of them here.
So how did it work out?
If you use the search online you will come to those generators or hacks sooner or later that let you put in the number of Gems & Resources you want – well, obviously they will require you to finish up some surveys or download something in order to work.
They come in many forms and colors but all of them work pretty much in the same way.
I don’t think I need to say a lot more about it, it’s simply not possible that such a generator works 😉
There Are NO Cheat Codes
The most important info first, you will not find any official cheat codes or anything of that kind in Clash of Clans. Supercell, the developer behind the game, offers the game for free in the App Stores and earns money by selling Gems via the in-app store – I think you understand why having official cheat codes will not benefit their business model plus would make the game quite boring with maxed villages against maxed villages all the time 😉
The “Hidden Elixir & Dark Elixir” Hack
No matter how well-designed your village is, there will always be an attacker that seals your hard-earned Elixir or Dark Elixir sooner or later. There is a simple trick that will hide some Elixir or Dark Elixir in your training queue:
You can always have a full army queued up in your Barracks and also un-train them as long as there is a full army in front of them for a full refund in training costs.
So, the hack here is that you queue up with the highest training costs possible when you log off un-queue them right after you go online again 🙂 Wallbreaker & Witches work best for that, depending if you want to hide Elixir or Dark Elixir.
Important! Make sure to NOT attack before you un-queued them or you wasted the whole resources for that army.
Hack for free Magical Items
You will get sometimes free magical items from the trader and there’s a hack to know when you get them – all magical items at the trader are in a fixed schedule and you can know when you will get them.
Check out the trader cycle here:
Train next army before attacking hack
You can lower the training time by filling your training queue before you go search for a fight. Once you start searching a base and see the clouds, your next army will start training – if you, let’s say, search for a base for 10 minutes and do the 3 minutes battle and come back, 13 minutes of the training of your next army will already be done. This also applies to heroes and is a handy hack in Clash of Clans to lower training times (especially when you do cheap army farming).
Use Events To Gain Elixir & Dark Elixir
There are always events going on in Clash of Clans (at least one every week) that offers 90% training discount for certain troops. At the end of the event, you can use the above technique of queuing the discounted troop during the event and then untrain it at after the event ended to get the full cost refunded – this can be easy 5,000+ Dark Elixir or 300,000 Elixir for a 20-second job!
Again, just make sure to un-train them before attacking 🙂
Don’t Use Mods or Custom APK Files
I can only recommend you to not use any mods – Clash of Clans has a very effective working mod detector and every couple of months accounts will get banned forever and it’s simply not worth the risk! Here’s a short overview what you will risk:
- Mods will get your account banned in 99% of all cases (don’t believe them if they tell you it’s safe to use, the ban wave will come weeks later and you’re out!!)
- Custom APK with Private Server can include keylogger and can sniff out your passwords and steal your accounts (email, social media, online banking etc. – is that worth it?! I don’t think so)
- Rooting your phone/tablet so you will lose warranty if something crashes (and that happens in the case of Apple devices quite often)
So, you see staying on the clean road is worth it and now you will see plenty of ways to get free Gems without any cheat.
Plus you won’t have any advantage because you play there against only other players that cheat – it’s simply no fun at all.
Clash of Clans Hacks For Free Gems
Gems are a Clashers’ best friend and what is better than Gems? Exactly, it’s free Gems. The good news is there are plenty of ways to get free Gems in Clash of Clans and I have here some of the secrets that I built up in the past years playing the game.
The “More Gems From Gem Mine” Hack
Let’s say your Gem Mine did produce for let’s say 15 hours, so (if it’s lvl 1) it generated 1.3 Gems but you will collect only 1 Gem from it. In this case, the production got reset and you wasted 0.3 Gems (every time!) which will add up in the long run!!!
Higher Gem Box Spawn Rate Hack
Simply DO NOT remove a new Gem Box in the first 48 hours when you see it in your village, then you will get a new one 5 days later after you removed it 🙂
This seems to be a glitch somewhere in the logic of the game and has been proven a lot of times to work.
Do The Events For Free Gems
There are special events almost evers week – sometimes even more than one at the same time that only requires you to do a couple of attacks with a certain troop (that is also discounted) and you will get some nice Gems for simply doing what you always do, attacking other villages 🙂
88 Free Gems Every Week With Trees
Removing trees & bushes will reward you with Gems – if you multiply the spawn rate of one tree every 8 hours in your Home Village and your Builder Base with the 1.85 Gems your get in average per removed tree, you will see that this is 88 Gems every week.
Easy Gems for little work, so don’t hesitate to remove them if you’re a F2P.
Use AppBounty, FreeMyApps or CashForApps
The only 3rd party way that works in order to get you free Gems for Clash of Clans without risking any ban! You download some free apps via AppBounty, FreeMyApps or CashForApps and then turn the credits you earn there into a real gift card for iTunes or Google Play that you can use to get some Gems with via the in-game shop.
In total, that’s more than $200 worth of gift cards that I used to buy 28,000 Gems with – without spending one single dollar of my own in just one month!
