Pocket Ants Guide, Tips, Cheats & Strategies: –
First things first – the very first thing we recommend is to capture the red ants’ base by slaying down the red ant queen. This task will help you master the combat mechanics quickly. By eliminating the red ants’ queen, you will get Pheromones that you can use to attract creatures. Let’s learn everything in detail and explore all the Pocket Ants tips & tricks featured in this walkthrough guide –
The Guide To Resources
The five in-game resources are Honeydew, Seed, Leaf, Food, and Body Parts.
Honeydew – you will get this honeydew from aphids. After building the honeydew chamber, go outside the nest and defeat the “fire ants”. After defeating all, you will have to protect the aphids convoy from more fire ants – the convoy carries aphids and drops to the nest; inside the honeydew chamber. Dropping aphids in the honeydew chamber will give you honeydew.
Seed – gather outside the nest with the help of workers and drop to seed storage. The seeds will be used in chamber upgrades or other tasks.
Leaf – gather outside the nest with the help of workers and drop to the leaf storage chamber. The leaves are used in food production and other upgrades.
Food – feed queen with food and produce soldiers or workers.
Body Parts – defeat the creature outside and gather body parts. You can use body parts to build/upgrade the slavery chamber. The slavery chamber is required to capture the resources.
Gathering The Resources Outside The Map
Well, the tutorial explains everything clearly – but, if you missed that, then this part will help you understand how resource grinding works. First, you can gather the resources manually or send workers to gather them. Go outside the nest and search for leaf and seed. Once found, go over it -> tap the select option in the lower-left corner -> select gather or set it as a source.
If you want workers to gather resources in Pocket Ants: Colony Simulator, make sure to set the source. Also, keep in mind that resource source depletes as you continue to gather from it. Once depleted fully, you will need to find again outside the nest -> set source again.
Getting And Managing The Workers In Pocket Ants
Workers are produced by your queen in the nest. When the queen is hungry, feed food, and get workers. On the left side, tap “worker” option -> you can assign workers based on your requirement – for example; if you need leaf, use the bar to assign a certain number of ants on the task. You can set them on gathering leaf, processing leaves to get food, send food to the queen, gather seed, and body parts.
Adjust the workers’ behavior based on what you need.
Building The Army In Pocket Ants: Colony Simulator
Having a great army of soldiers and creatures in Pocket Ants: Colony Simulator will help you defeat other players, capture the red ant nest, defeat powerful creatures, etc. While in the nest, tap the army option on the right-side -> breed(requires food) -> get soldiers. Use Pheromones to attract the “creatures”.
Getting Pheromones: eliminate other players in the battle or capture the red ant nest by eliminating the red ant queen.
Tips For Battle – Combat With Ants
->First, you need to assemble the “soldiers”. Tap the “recruit” option in the lower-left corner – this will make you the leader and other ants will follow you wherever you go.
->To start the fight, you will need to go near the enemy ants; the soldiers will start attacking the nearby ants.
->Your army size is limited to a certain number; x10 early. So, we would recommend you to avoid fighting a large number of ants. You will lose more soldiers if you fight more ants than the size of your army. So, the best way to save soldiers and combat wisely is by fighting with a small number of ants at a time. How to do that? Well, it’s pretty easy. All you need to do is “lure” the small number of ants. Go close to the ants’ group and step back to separate them from the group.
Use The Honeydew For Bonuses
You can spend honeydew in the shop and buy bonus items that give you buffs; for example – increasing ant workers’ speed, reducing eggs’ hatching time. Increasing the chance of a successful creature fusion.

- Honeydew Chamber – stores honeydew. Upgrade it to increase the honeydew storage limit
What Is Rock In Pocket Ants?
Asked by Mike: – I found a rock in the game but there is not a single description about what this rock is for. I picked it up but nothing to do with it and looked around different places for this answer
By Andrew: – so far, as the game is in beta, the rocks don’t do much, h9ever, in a battle if you take the time to get a rock, things won’t attack you, it is a neat little thing, you can also mess with the red ants with it, it’s fun.
By Barry – yes you will get attacked if you are carrying the rock!!
