West Game Cheats: Tips & Guide to Survive the Wild West and Build a Strong Town

In today’s article, we are going to share with you all of our West Game tips and cheats to help you build the best town in the Wild West and help you manage it like a pro sheriff.

You will have to deal with quite a lot of structures, so it is important that you know how to properly deal with any… misfortune that comes your way (such as bandits invading your town) and not lose anything in the process. Since there are quite a lot of tasks at hand, I’ll walk you through everything that you need to know!

So, are you ready? Then let’s get right into the West Game tips and tricks right here below!

Firstly, upgrade the buildings 

The main quest line can be found on the bottom right side of the screen. Here you will see quite a few quests and you can see their requirements for completion. You can also just tap on them (on the main screen in the middle bottom side), and that will take you exactly where you need to be for completing that quest.

The rewards you receive from these quests are very useful, as they will help you gain resources and level up, and that is good when you are just at the beginning. The quests will also walk you through all the buildings that you need to construct in order to have a completed town, so I suggest that you follow these quests ASAP.

As for later on in the game, I have found a slightly different method – I’ll detail more about this below!

Once you built every building, focus on each individual one

After you have managed to build multiple structures, you should start making upgrades to strengthen them. The best way to do that is to upgrade each building to the maximum, as soon as you can (even if the game doesn’t actually require it yet).

By maxing out the building levels (for the current Town Center level), this will help you keep your town upgraded to its maximum in all circumstances. This is extremely useful to catch up with the other players because you can do it while you still have the immunity shield on.

Therefore, my suggestion would be to upgrade the buildings as much as you can, and whenever you level up your Town Center, go back and upgrade the buildings again.

Focus on resources early on

Resources are extremely important since they will help you build everything that you need. You’ll be able to construct a certain number of resource farms at the start, but with each upgrade to the Town Center, you’ll unlock more.

Since you can have a total of 23 resource farms, you should dedicate half of them to Farms (build 11 Farms), 6 to wood production (Logging Camp), 3 Mines, and 3 Quarries. Don’t worry though – once you trained plenty of troops (that require Farms), you can demolish some of the farms and build something else.

How to gather Silver?

Silver is an important resource, but if you aren’t mass-producing it, then you need to rely on other sources to obtain it. Mainly, you can obtain Silver from Mines (in the World Map), but they are quite scarce. Another way to obtain more Silver would be to build Cabins and up your Silver production. Keep in mind that if you research Silver Production, you will obtain more Silver from your resource farms.

Lastly, if you have some powerful troops, you can try to attack other players. When you launch an attack, you will take some of the enemy player’s Silver if you win.

Join an active Alliance

I suggest that you take your time and find a good and active Alliance to join because it is a super important feature. Of course, if you can’t find one at the very beginning of the game, then don’t worry! Just make all the upgrades as I have suggested above and soon you will have a very powerful town.

Once your town is strong enough, you will most definitely find an Alliance much easier. The reason that it’s important for you to join an active Alliance, is because you can receive lots of construction speed ups from other players. They will help you build the structures much faster, so if you are in a good and active Alliance, then you will basically build faster.

Use speed-ups until you can make the upgrade for free

The speed-ups will help you upgrade the buildings by reducing the time quite a lot! Use the speed ups mostly on the Town Center and other buildings that are super important, because they are basically the key feature in your town.

I always use speed-ups for the Town Center and the Academy, because I like to research quite a lot. You should use the speed-ups wisely though, and not waste them in the early stages of the game. If you join an Alliance you can finish the upgrades quickly with just the help you receive from other players.

I suggest that you use these speed-ups later on in the game when it takes a few hours to complete an upgrade. Also, if you are starting a Town Center upgrade (which takes longer than the other buildings) you should focus on doing other stuff in the game and start up the upgrade before you go to bed, and that way it will be finished by the time you wake up (this applies if you don’t want to use speed-ups).

Otherwise, spend those speed-ups to quickly finish the long upgrades ONLY after you have requested full aid from your Alliance (for the maximum construction speed decrease time).

Don’t forget to build for free!

Every time a building has less than 10 minutes, you can finish the upgrade for free! This is super useful because whenever you have a free building (or upgrade) available, you don’t need to wait for it to finish and instead just hit the “free” button and the building process is complete!

I suggest that you take this into consideration when you use speed ups so that you won’t waste speed ups to go all the way to 0:00 time. Instead, leave just a little bit more than 10 minutes, and at the 10-minute mark, finish the upgrade for free.

Complete the quests!

In the Quest tab on the bottom side of the screen, you will have a few quests which you can do to obtain other goodies such as Sheriff EXP and resources. I suggest that you complete them every day before they reset (because they reset every 6 hours) and gain all the goodies from them!

You should start with the lower time quests, and leave the higher timed ones for later. That way even if you can’t finish them all before the reset, at least you will finish most of them.

Focus on the Main Quest

The Main Quest is the most important one, so don’t forget to complete as many tasks as you can. That should be your priority because every upgrade you make (or should make) will appear at one point or another in the Main Quest. Later on, when you reach a higher level, you will pay less attention to the Main Quest and progress at your own pace – but until then, use it to guide you.

Go to the Academy and start researching!

I really urge you to go to the Academy (next to the Town Center) and start researching some extra skills there, because they will come in handy later on. The skills you learn in Research are basically your town’s core since they will help you in every battle.

The ones you should focus on at the start is the Economics -> Construction because any little help towards speeding up the construction is good. Afterward, focus on any other skill that you can acquire because eventually, you should learn all of them.

For instance, if you fight a lot (and you should IMO) you should go for skills that boost your troops’ ATK, march speed, DEF, or anything else that you think your troops lack.

Keep in mind:

Aways have some skill researching! Don’t leave the Academy empty, because that’s basically wasted time. Research takes time (could take a lot of hours), and if you leave your Academy idle, you’ll have wasted all the time that could otherwise go into learning something. That is extremely important before you close the game.

Challenge the other players and conquer the World Map

The game is quite reliant on raids, gathering from the world map, and explore all of your surroundings. After you create several troops, you can send them out into the World Map to gather resources for you. To do that, you can either raid other players’ camps or attack various enemies and resource mines.

As your troops grow in numbers, you’ll bring back more goods from these expeditions. Eventually, this will be your main source of food and other resources (which is why I mentioned before that it’s better to invest in a lot of Farms at the beginning).

Know which enemy players to attack!

When you attack players, you could gather a lot more resources than you would from mines and other PvE sources. So, it’s good to locate players who have abandoned their base, or those who don’t have an Alliance.

Avoid players who are in an Alliance, because then you might bring about the wrath of their entire Alliance upon yourself! In short, any player who can’t fight back should be your go-to target – and don’t feel bad about it.

Train the best units!

If you want to maximize the resources you obtain from these raids in the World Map, then you should train the troops which have a good load capacity. These would be the Mortars. The Mortars are weak in fights, but they are great for PvE.

So, on your expeditions make sure you send out Mortars to fill up on resources, and train other troops to carry out the battles.

West Game Cheats: Tips & Guide to Survive the Wild West and Build a Strong Town


    • 1) There are silver mines on the map, but they’re more scarce than the other open resources such as farms, stone quarries, etc. You just have to scroll around and look for them.
      2) Build more cabins to produce more silver yourself.
      3) Attack other players. If you win, you’ll take some of their silver.

  1. how do you leave one state to go to another. I have a friend also playing but he is in a different state. mine is # 10 his is # 11. how do i move to 11 ?

    • Wait he will be released when that person applies a peace shield or is released by that person or is captured and released by someone else attacking that person who first captured your sheriff he can be executed but you have to be at certain levels in the game

  2. Any tips on beating bandit gangs I can solo lvl 2 gangs I have an army of 160k t3 and was wondering if mixing t1&t2 units in there would be a good idea someone mentioned that meat shields are pretty effective? IDK as an alliance we can beat a 7mil force lvl3 gang but I would like to be able to solo a lvl 3 gang without needing t4 units my tc is lvl18 it’s gonna take forever to get to 21 than the research for t4 is probably a month if the trend continues

    • You won’t lose any troops, and any that you do you will get back, you may need to heal a small portion in the hospital, but if it were me, send them all. JMO.


    • 1. The C.R.I.C. principle:
      Calvary defeats Range
      Range defeats Infantry
      Infantry defeats Calvary

      2. Before attacking, first get a scouting report to show the enemy forces:
      – Get the LEVEL of enemy forces.
      – Get the TYPES of enemy forces.

      3. Based on the level and types of enemy forces, plan your attack. Send sufficient troops of the highest level and type to defeat them.

      Example: The enemy has 15k level 2 Infantry and 20k level 2 Range.

      You should send 35k (or more) level 2 (or higher) Range.
      1) Send at least 20k level 2 Range to match his level 2 Range.
      2) Send at least 15k level 2 Range to defeat his level 2 Infantry.

      Note that these numbers are the MINIMUM. It is advisable to send more, to overwhelm the enemy.

      4. Everything defeats traps, but send them as a wall. The lowest things you send get attacked first, thus traps will get hit while your troops survive to attack the enemy. Send at least as many as the total count of the enemy’s troops.

    • The best way is to use RESOURCES as you need them leaving the rest in your inventory for safe keeping lets call it your safety resources that can not be touched until your ready for them

    • Put your shield on. You can buy 24 hours shield for 1000 gold or some loyalty points every day. Gold or loyalty points arent difficult to obtain when you belong to an alliance. You have rewards for some quests you do. Also when you join an active alliance they will help you learn how to do things.

    • What do you mean ?? the monument is a building that is part of the set up if you haven’t got one then maybe you have to many resource buildings for it to be built. have you completed building your town ???? The monument looks similar to a clock tower.

  3. Is there any advantage to forging more than one piece of the same equipment such as Wood cane I have 2 of them but encrusted with different crystels ///

    • the crystals do different things so you can have one that you boost specifically for fighting and one for Farming, just switch between the two depending on what you are doing

    • if its the Alliance your In goto the alliance tab at the bottom right of your screen, the alliance Headquarters location is listed in blue, press this and it will go to the location, choose a spot on the map and then select move, as long as you have an advanced tele you will move there

    • Heal and resurrect your troops (at the hospital and memorial) and repair your traps (at the Defense factory). The fires will go out eventually.

    • Are you a Chancellor? if you are then go to Alliance Tab at the bottom right of your screen, where your current HQ location is there is an arrow in a circle, press this and it takes you to the screen to move your HQ/Alliance Territory

    • yes, as long as your market is LVL10 or above.
      Click your market then choose transport, it shows you the alliance members list, choose the member you want to send it to

  4. I’ve been in an alliance for some time now and have not participated in the AVA. I recently tried but got very little directions. When told to teleport out I didn’t know what to do. Later I, along with some other people were reprimanded for not doing our part. I want to know what I am supposed to do for these events.

    • Option 1: Mount an attack against the town, if the attack is strong enough, your sheriff will be released.
      Option 2: Send an email to the player who captured your sheriff, and ask him to release him. It’s worth a shot.
      Option 3: Some players have no intention of executing the sheriff, and he’ll just be released automatically after 6 hours I think.

    • 1. Click on your warehouse (barn-looking building north of your tracks). Check your Protection level. Up to that amount can be kept in your inventory and it can’t be stolen. Note that silver is not listed, it’s not protected.
      2. Store all silver, and any resources that exceed your warehouse protection level, in the Alliance Warehouse. Only withdraw it when you need it (for research, building upgrades, etc).
      3. Camp your players and sheriff to protect them.

    • At low levels there’s only one queue for building. I never made it higher than level 12, so I don’t know if you eventually get more queues for that. As level 12 I had 3 transport queues, so I could gather resources from 3 places simultaneously.

  5. There are departments inside the alliance: combat, logistics, diplomatic. What is the purpose of these departments? Are there benefits to being in one of those departments?

  6. Please respond I see so many no answer…at least say I do not know.

    How do I increase my backpack in blacksmithing when I want to forge says I have no room plz increase back pack……where do I go todo this…..and if I’m on fire…..can it be put out…or most burn out?

    • It should have the option to buy more spaces with gold when you scroll down to locked spaces. As the for the town burning, logging back in as well as healing your troops, traps etc should do the trick

  7. Is it smart to transport resources to the Alliance Warehouse? Does it cost a percentage of my resources or do I gain interest on them? Is there a scenario where I could potentially lose them?

    • Safely Storing Resources (rss)
      1. Your warehouse is the barn-looking building just North of your tracks. Click on it to see your rss protection level. Keep up to this limit of each rss (food, wood, stone, and iron) in your inventory, and it won’t get stolen. Note that silver is not protected.
      2. The Alliance Warehouse is the second place to store resources. Keep all silver there when not in use. Keep other rss there that exceed your own warehouse’s protection level. Only withdraw them when needed (for upgrades, research, etc).

    • The only scenario would be if someone attacks you for your resources. Also, You don’t get taxed for storing your alliances in your alliance warehouse. Only when you’re transporting to other members. You can lower transport tax by upgrading your market building.

  8. As you look for an alliance to join, look around their area. If they are near a larger body of water, better yet, several bodies of water, that is the alliance to join if they meet your other criteria. Silver mines pop up in water or at the edges. Last thing you want to do is have an 8+ minute march to gather silver…

  9. Is there anyway to get more construction queues? Most games allow you to buy a second or 3rd and I can’t find any such thing is this game. Please help :)

  10. Is there anyway I can get more advanced teleports without paying 600,000 loyalty points or 1500 gold bars… it’s too costly to attack somebody…

  11. How can I recall my troops when attacking, my items say I have 2 recalls but there is no use button when my troops are marching and when I click on the march it only gives me boost options and no recall?

    • Click the icon on the lower left screen with a flag on it and 3/3 sign or whatever rss queues you have. It should show you what each troops on marches are doing and there should be a recall option to click. Can only recall if you have recall items or otherwise pay with gold.

    • There should be an icon on your lower left side of the screen that looks like a flag with the number of queues going on out of march or resource queues you have. Click recall to use one of your recall items on whichever resource or marches you’re wanting back. Or pay with gold if you have none. Can also be purchased through loyalty shop or given at rewards/gifts

  12. Some alliances have a red symbol by their town. It seems hard to clear out even a level one bandits town in our area. What is up with the gang of bandits?

    • It’s possible to beat lvl 1 gob with tier 2s troops. It helps to scout to see what troops they have to decide which the best tier 2s to send out.
