The world’s economy has sunk into oblivion, and good old Krieger has a genius plan – start his own cryptocurrency! The crazy thing is, his plan actually might work! Archer: Danger Phone is a new idle game based off of the hit FX show. Collect your favorite characters from the show, including Arhcer, Malory, and Lana, and put them to work to generate cryptocurrency!
In Touch Tap Play’s Archer: Danger Phone tips and tricks guide, we will go over the basics of earning krigerrand, Krieger’s appropriately named cryptocurrency. We will talk about how to make your profits efficient, so let’s get started with our Archer: Danger Phone cheats, tips, and tricks strategy guide to earn lots of money!
Complete Operation Goals
Archer: Danger Phone is split into different levels, or “operations”. Each operation has a set list of goals for you to achieve, and you will not be able to progress to the next operation until you complete the required goals.
You can see your current goals at the top of the screen. The first few operations are considered a part of the tutorial, so you will only get a few goals at a time. When you complete an objective, one of the purple bars at the top will fill up, and when you fill them all up you will be able to move on.
Later in the game, you will start to get multiple goals all at the same time. You can complete whichever one is the easiest to you, because the game will often give you more goals than you need to complete the operation.
Once you complete the required amount of goals, you can end the operation at any time, or you can stay and try to complete the remaining goals for extra rewards.

Max Out a Simulation for Rewards
As you know, buying influencers for your simulations will increase the amount of cash they generate. But as the Anime Bride tells you, simulations have certain thresholds that you can reach with enough influencers, and you will earn rewards for doing so.
You can get martinits, krigerrand, and character cards from these reward boxes, so make sure to grab them all. Simulations will have multiple thresholds to them, so make sure you collect everything.
You will know a simulation is done when it says “maxed out”. When you see this, you can move onto the next simulation and start buying influencers for that.
You may complete all of the operation’s objectives before you collect all of the rewards. If this happens, make sure to stick around for a bit to collect the rewards before moving on. You will thank yourself later!
Spend your Cocktails Wisely
Cocktails are one of the two premium currencies in this game. You need cocktails to upgrade agents and simulations, in addition to the required amount of cards.
You earn cocktails every time you level up a simulation enough to earn the reward box, but you only earn a few of them. You sometimes also get them from complete goals, but again – only a few.
You will quickly earn way more agent and simulation cards than you do cocktails, so you will need to spend them wisely.
We highly recommend that you upgrade the agents you need to automate your simulations before anything else. Money generation is a lot easier when it is automated, but you can only do it if the matching agent is high enough level.
Upgrading Agents and Simulations
Agents are the first thing you should upgrade when you have enough cards. Agents can provide either a global bonus multiplier which increases the amount of cash generated from all sources, and they also provide specific simulations with a cash bonus as well.
As we mentioned above, agents can also automate certain rooms, but they need to be at a certain level before they can do so. Find out which agents you need and upgrade them first.
Simulations are the other aspects you can improve with cocktails and cards. When a simulation is upgraded, its production time speeds up and the amount of cash it generates is significantly increased.
All of these upgrades remain persistent throughout the game and are not lost when all of the simulations are reset. Upgrades are the key to getting through the early stages of an operation quickly!
Play Events for Special Rewards
After you complete the tutorial, you will gain access to limited time events. As the name suggests, these events are only around for a few hours, so get in while you have the chance.
Events are separate from the main game, so you will have a completely separate currency. The simulations are all different as well, and your goals will change to match them.
Cocktails will also change to something different to match the theme of the event. You should also know these are also considered separate from your main cocktails, so do not be afraid to use them to upgrade the event agents.
Building all of the simulations in the event hub take a lot longer than the main game, as the prices you will have to pay are significantly higher than those found in the main game.
The reason for this is that when the event is over, the game will reward the top 200 players with special items. The higher rank you are, the better your rewards will be. You can check your current ranking and the thresholds by tapping the trophy icon at the top of the screen.
When you are playing the event, you do not have to worry about wasting time for the main game. When you are in the event hub, the game will act as if you had the app closed, so when you go back to the main game you will earn money for the amount of time you were away.
The best time to play the event is when you have unlocked all of the simulations and you are at that point where a single upgrade can take billions of cash. When you do it like this, you do not have to worry about missing out on progress on either side!
Stop by the Black Market for Goodies
The black market can be accessed at any time by tapping the button at the right corner of the screen.
The first thing you will see are cards. Three simulation and agent cards will be on display here, and you can purchase any of them with cocktails. Useful if you are missing just one or two certain cards!
Scroll down a bit and you will see the cases. Cases are essentially the influencer rewards you get for upgrading the simulations – they contain a random assortment of cocktails, krigerrand, and cards.
There are also Gold Cases and Legendary Cases, which cost 70 and 450 krigerrand respectively. These cases contain a ton of cash, cocktails, and cards in them!
If you are going to buy one of these, we highly recommend saving enough krigerrand for the Legendary Case, which has the highest chance of awarding you with high rarity agents. There is really nothing else to spend krigerrand on, unless you want to buy time skips.
In addition to these cases, there is also the Timer Case which is free but can only be opened once every couple of hours. Be sure to enable notifications to know when to come and get your free case!
