3. Choosing A Weapon
Now that you have seen the list of weapons, you are probably confused as to which one you should use. If you just want to have fun, feel free to try out each one and watch what they do to Buddy. If you are trying to be efficient, however, then you may want to choose the Vampire Bats. This weapon automatically hits Buddy repeatedly until he dies. That means you get to earn a lot of coins for every hit and get added earnings once he is knocked out.
4. Take Advantage Of The VIP Trial
As we mentioned earlier, you can sign up for the VIP trial which is free for the first three days. If you decide to keep the VIP membership, you will have to pay a weekly fee through the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. If you have no plans of spending real money, make sure you cancel the VIP membership before the end of the third day. Don’t worry because you will get plenty from the three-day trial. VIP status gives you access to three additional weapons. You also get 100 gems and 1,000 coins per day. That means you get 300 gems and 3,000 coins for free before you need to pay for the membership.
5. Earn More Free Gems
The VIP trial is a one-time trick that you can use to earn free gems. Since you will be needing thousands of gems in order to unlock all the weapons, you have to take advantage of other ways to earn gems for free. One way to earn more gems is by simply playing every day. Daily login rewards change all the time, but they often include a handful of free gems. It may not seem like much but they all pile up if you keep at it.
Another way to earn free gems is to earn card bonuses. You earn different rewards from cards, including weapons, but they also sometimes include gems. In order to earn a card bonus, you will have to kill Buddy. Keep in mind that using the same weapon over and over will eventually disqualify you from earning more card bonuses. The game will tell you if you have used the same weapon to kill Buddy too many times. When that happens, just find a different weapon to kill him with, and let the fun continue.
A final way to earn more gems for free is by keeping an eye out for bonus characters. You will sometimes encounter the Pinata or the Candy Egg. They are a lot tougher than Buddy, but when you do kill them, they give you a lot of rewards. You will also occasionally see a UFO, or maybe even Rick and Morty. Drag Buddy towards their attacks and you will deal a lot of damage, allowing you to kill him more quickly.
