A Clash of Clans Hack is any tool, software, modification, method or mans for players to gain unfair advantages and cheat in COC on both Android and iOS alike. – While there is a huge variety of different ways of hacking the game with no root and no jailbrake required, hacks and generators for unlimited free Gems (crystals), Elixir, Dark Elixir, free Gold (money / coins) and other Resources or free Builders, free in-app purchases do not exist for CoC and are always fake.
There are several more and less sophisticated and prolific methods of game hacking applied in CoC on Android and iOS alike: App modding is used to modify the APK and iOS game app files themselves to gain advantages, tools, such as memory editors are used to modify game data and memory to implement cheats, bots and automation software are used to farm the game for unlimited free resources, gems and other desirables and more rare cheating methods, such as exploits and glitches can be used on rare occasions to make impossible cheats, such as unlimited games, possible for a short time. Generators and online tools are always fake, because CoC is a very server-side processing heavy game at this point and any legit game modding method is client-sided.
Modding is the most popular cheating method for CoC on both Android and iOS and it is a means of modifying app files to implement cheats directly into the game by reverse-engineering the game app and modifying the decompiled code. - The great thing about this method of cheating is that it is incredibly convenient to the end-user, allowing them to simply download the modded APK or modded iOS file, install them in place of the actual game, then play and enjoy the Clash of Clans hacks that are possible at that time. While the installation process for APK mod files and iOS game mods in not entirely without challenge, it beats the alternative game hacking methods by a country mile. Again, just like with hacks and generators, mods for unlimited gems, gold and elixir are not possible, as these are processed server-side.
Mod Menus are fancy versions of mods made by the best developers in the industry that generally come with more options, better features and an in-game menu to toggle individual cheats and customize them.
As I already mentioned; these kinds of hacks are impossible now. Your Units Health, Your Town Your Gold, Gems and Elixir are not stored you your computer, but on the game server, known as server-side processing. The game servers are not accessible for data editing to us by any legal means. This is the same for all platforms: Even a rooted iOS or Android will not allow you to get unlimited free gold, gems, dark elixir, trophies ect in Clash of Clans. – Everyone that is claiming to have any generators or hacks to get you money, gems, elixir or buildings is trying to scam you. – These people might be changing some display values in the game or using video editing to make their product seem legit, but all they want is for you to fill in surveys or to steal your login data. –All the very important values in Clash of Clans are processed on the game server and there is simply no way to change them. Bots are the closest thing to an unlimited gem and resource cheat if Clash of Clans and we recommend using these instead.
Bots are programs that can automatically log into your CoC account and perform certain tasks and procedures fully automatically. This kind of cheat is the closest thing you can get to an infinite gem and resource hack in Clash of Clans, as bots can farm the game forever: Bots and game automation apps can be programmed to upgrade your base automatically and build creatures and your army, complete missions, complete challenges and achievements for free gems and unlocking the gold pass. There are also very few advanced bots that are able to raid enemy bases, deploy troops and heroes, cast spells efficiently and farm gold, elixir, resources and trophies that way. However, in order to raid bases in higher leagues, a human mind is required, but bots are always nice to farm out low-level players. That is also why you might lose a whole bunch of trophies if you do not configure your bot correctly.
Overall bots are the most underappreciated cheat in Clash of Clans, being only outpaced in potential by extremely rare exploit and have the potential to get you unlimited free resources, gems, money, maxed buildings, a maxed base, maxed units and other goodies over time. If you want to learn how to create your own bot, then check out this tutorial.
By far the most prolific game hacking method applied in Clash of Clans are APK mods or mod APKs for Android as it is the most popular mobile OS out there and the one that is easiest to develop software including modded apps for, therefore has the biggest community of game hackers and game cheaters of all the mobile devices. APK mods will generally be downloaded as an APK file and on OBB system file, then the APK needs to be installed, the OBB placed in the OBB folder and for both Android and iOS mods it is extremely important to follow the exact instructions on how to correctly install any specific mod in order to ensure it works correctly and one does not get banned from playing the game. It is also highly recommended to test any mod on an emulator first and on an alternate game account before using software on your main Clash of Clash game account that you spend money on.
Exploiting or ‘glitching’, both meaning the same thing, are a method of gaining unfair advantages that use bugs in the game bot server-side and on the game client itself to break the game and cheat. – While these bugs that can be exploited for great gain are incredibly, unfathomably rare in Clash of Clans and only exist until the developers become aware of them and hotfix them in the next patch, they have the potential to make impossible cheats possible for a limited time: So while under normal circumstances cheats like free gems, free in-app purchases, unlimited gold, dark elixir, money hacks, infinite trophies for titan league, unlimited shields, decoration unlocks, free gold pass, unlimited magic items, damage hacks, god mode for units, level hacks and similar features are impossible, glitches can make these options possible for a limited time. Especially since CoC is an almost completely server-sided game, exploiting is one of the best methods available for cheaters and game hackers to use. – On top of all these great advantages, most glitches require no root and no jailbrake to use them successfully on both Android and iOS mobile devices, making it the perfect way for newbie cheaters to get started.
While not as convenient as simply downloading and installing a mod, the use of game hacking tools requires much more time and effort on the part of the user than other means of cheating in Clash of Clans: Not only will memory editing and manual game hacking usually require a rooted Android device or jailbroken iOS phone, it will also require some general knowledge of game programming and structure basics and being able to follow some very in-depth instructions and tutorials. Now the big upside of using game hacking tools is that the same techniques may continue to work for a long time and in multiple different games if they are coded in the same game engine. – While mods will generally be outdated every time a new patch for Clash of Clans is pushed to the client, game hacking methods may be unaffected by multiple or even many updates. – Currently the most popular tools to use are GameGuardian for Android mobile and GameGem for iOS learn the basics in this tutorial.
Due to the insane popularity of Clash of Clans, Supercell have decided to make the game largely server-sided, which means that almost all data is processed on the game servers, making game hacking extremely difficult to do. – Contrary to what some of the ’fake generator’ people will say it is actually impossible to hack server-sided game data in Clash of Clans. Your best bet for gaining unfair advantages at this point is through the use of bots and scripts to play the game automatically and get you more free gems, gold, elixir and other money resources that way.
There are many shady app download websites, APK download websites, app stores and other sources out there advertising Android and iOS mods for Clash of Clans featuring ‘mod money’ or unlimited money features as parts of their modded app or mod menu download. – These are all fake and will never work as advertised. Again, CoC is completely server-sided when it comes to processing and storing your game currencies, items, resources, buildings in your base, troops, skins including your gem count, gold number, elixir and dark elixir values. – These are all stored on the game servers that cannot be hacked as messing with them would be highly illegal and no one would take such a risk to be slightly better in a mobile game.
In order to understand the concept of a private server and why it would actually allow one to get infinite gold, elixir, troops and gems / trophies, one has to understand the concept of a server: The server is where the whole game is processed and stored and you connect to that server to play using your game client on your PC or mobile device (that you downloaded). Now while usually you are connecting to the official server by Supercell, the developer, there is a way to program the client to connect to another server that you control. Now Clash of Clans does not allow for anyone to create a private server, contrary to other games like Minecraft, but there is still a way. If one were to emulate a server, that means create custom software that does the same thing as the CoC servers, but does not include stolen code, then it would still be possible to run your own private Clash of Clans server. Legally speaking it would be a kind of a gray area, as long as you do not make any money from it. However, this private server would be under YOUR control, allowing you to get unlimited resources and health on your units ect, which is impossible in the official game and on the official servers. It is highly doubtful that people will try to reconstruct the CoC server infrastructure just to get a God Mode, but it is one of the biggest online games out there, so who knows what the future holds.
As we just outlined, Clash of Clans has slowly transitioned to a heavily server-side processed game infrastructure, making manual game hacking and modding extremely difficult. – The way around this is the use automated farming software also know as ‘bots’ or robots / scripts. These can still farm an unlimited amount of free resources for you, including gems, gold, elixir, dark elixir and other goodies. You can find more about bots and how to use them down below, but at the moment it is clearly the #1 best way to cheat in CoC and uncontested in that regard.
While emulation and the use of emulators to play Clash of Clan on PC / Mac is not a cheat in itself, emulation software will very often come with a lot of advantages and tools that can make cheating, running automated script s and farming bots, creating macros, mutiboxing, using mouse & keyboard controls, using VPN, easy jailbraking and rooting and other advantageous features quite easy to accesss. – Especially when it comes to cheating with no root and no jailbrake, emulators are the best tools out there, enabling players to root or jailbrake their emulated Android / iOS device at the push of a button, allowing them to have no root and no jailbrake on their actual physical mobile gaming device or phone. Overall, emulators are one of the best tools out there to help facilitate Clash of Clans hacks and all of them are completely free to download and use.
Overall, Clash of Clans is a mostly server-sided game, making cheating using mods, such as APK mdos, and hacks extremely difficult, but not impossible. And while most hacks and generators you will find online will be 100% fake, the real thing does exist and there are ways to gain unfair advantages in CoC on both Android and iOS alike, even with no root and no jailbrake required. Bots are by far the best cheat available in Clash of Clans, as game modding in the traditional sense can be quite difficult, but automated farming software is still able to farm what is quite literally unlimited free gold, gems, money, resources and other goodies given enough time. Of course setting up bots and running them is quite difficult at times, unless you use finished products, but it is by far the most effective cheating methods available in the game at this point. As always we recommend using any tools with respect for the game, its developers and your fellow player to avoid and reports and account bans, use HackFinder to find working downloads for long-standing and clean sources and stay safe.
