If you are a fan of the show, then you will most likely enjoy the game too, because it’s pretty catchy! You’ll have to “cook” stuff, produce all kinds of goods and secure transportation for it, so overall you will have a pretty busy schedule in game – all in pursuit of making money!

So, are you ready to learn all of our Breaking Bad: Criminal Elements tips and tricks? Then let’s not waste another second and dive right into them!

Start building a solid base

You will be looking to strengthen your base every step of the way. From building powerful structures, to fortifying and upgrading already existing ones, you should definitely make all the little upgrades possible.

This will make a big difference, and make your team stronger whenever you attack, and tougher whenever you defend.

Follow the story line and choose the right path!

You will be asked at some point how would you like to progress through the acts. You might have multiple choices, and they can differ, so I suggest that you pick wisely what ever it is that you want to do.

For example, when Walter White asks you about your preferred way of approaching things, you can choose whether you want to “Attack the Competition” or “Cook Product”. If you choose to attack, you will have to fight in two stages – if you choose to cook, you will have to go to Lab -> Cooking Station and cook the first product twice.

Always have something cookin’

At the early stages, it doesn’t take that long to cook, but as you start making upgrades, the time will increase. I suggest that you always have something cooking at all times, because you will greatly benefit from it.

You will need stuff for most of your tasks which reward you with money, so make sure that you collect enough at all times. That’s why it’s important to cook pretty much all the time.

Start completing contracts for resources

By completing contracts you can obtain various resources, from bricks to money and reputation. The contracts tab can be found in the top right corner of the screen, right under the amount of money you have.

Tap there and make sure you have the required stuff (usually the “stuff” is the “White Glass” which you are cooking), but if you really want to complete a mission badly without having to wait to cook, then you can do so by spending Gold to auto complete the mission without having the requirements.

I suggest completing as many contracts as you can every day, and claiming the rewards, but be careful not to waste the money! (I’ll detail more about “wasting” money below)

Don’t claim more than you can carry!

You see on the top side of the screen that your money bar slowly fills up. I suggest being very wary of this, and never let it fill up entirely because then you will start wasting money. For example if you collect money and your money bar is full, the money will not exceed that bar but you can still claim them! That will result in money wasted!

So always make sure that you spend some money before you claim new money rewards, so that will never happen!

Always upgrade your characters

You can upgrade your characters to increase their stats, by heading on to the Specialists menu (bottom left side) and tapping on the character you want to upgrade. You can then tap on the top left corner icon next to the character’s name and start making upgrades!

This is super important and will make a big difference when you are fighting on the field against enemy units! So make sure that whenever you have some extra cash laying around, you use them to make upgrades first!

Upgrade your buildings

The buildings that you construct on your territory can be upgraded as well, by tapping on the green arrow button. Do this to make them tougher, to increase the production and to gain player EXP.

You should always upgrade your Headquarters and the Lab equipment, because this is what you will use the most. Afterwards, you can upgrade your Cash Trucks to increase profits. Just remember that the priority should fall on the HQ and Lab!

Speed up upgrades by watching ads!

You can choose to watch a short ad to speed up the process of upgrading something. This will take up to 30 seconds, and in return you will receive 20 minutes reduced from the time it would normally take to finish an upgrade!

When you want to make upgrades fast, make sure you do this because it is definitely worth it (if you don’t want to spend Gold on upgrades either).

Make upgrades to your White Glass Generator!

This is what gives you basically the resources to make White Glass. You need to keep the generator charged, because else it will stop producing materials. Always remember to charge it and upgrade it, to receive even more resources per hour!

Expand your territory!

When you open the Map menu, you will see several red targets where you can choose to attack enemies. These targets are located in various places around the map, and when you tap on them you can choose to “Scout”, which basically shows you the enemy setup, or to “Attack” to straight up attack them!

The more you advance, the more I suggest that you don’t go blindly attack the enemy, because it could be pretty difficult to take down! At the early levels you can do that, but later on don’t do it if you don’t want to lose!

Place yourself strategically

When you choose to attack the enemies, you will have a green deploy area (or more)! I suggest always paying very close attention to how the enemy is set up, because you don’t actually have to fight all the enemies in order to win!

The objective is to take down the enemy’s Headquarters, so you need to position yourself strategically! The watch towers deal a lot of damage, while simple fighters on the ground can deal less.

I suggest that you always deploy your little troops in an area which is relatively close to the HQ, but has less enemies on the way there to take down, because that I consider to be the best approach.

I have been playing games ever since I can remember. My passion for video games and especially pixel graphic games must have started back when I was little, because every time I try a new game with pixel graphics I immediately fall addicted to it! I started writing about mobile games in November 2018, focusing on creating in-depth guides for the most popular titles out there. Other than games, I am also passionate about design, and working on my very own pixel game in my free time.
