In this post, you will learn how to play The Ants Underground Kingdom, about special ants, tips on increasing the power, a walkthrough to progress in the game, and other things like resources, alliance, ant population, and much more. So let’s not waste any time and get to the main content: The Ants Underground Kingdom guide & tips for beginners: –
Guide To The Ants Underground Kingdom Basics⇓
-> In The Ants Underground Kingdom, your goal is to get stronger, build and upgrade the base, and participate/dominate in all sorts of game modes; PvE, PvP, Alliance, and try to reach the top rankings. Your total power is displayed at the top of the screen and it can be increased by building and upgrading the facilities/buildings on the base, hatching ant troops, getting or developing special ants, upgrading queen, and through evolution.
-> At first, you have to focus on the PvE, not PvP. Focus on the main tasks, upgrade queen, build facilities and start upgrading, hatch ant troops, get special ants, expand the base, join the alliance, and once you have got strength, you can start participating in PvP, alliance battles, and events. In PvP, you raid on another player’s base to loot lots of resources.
-> Once you reach the level 7 queen, you will need to choose a class. We have posted The Ants Underground Kingdom class guide here to help you pick the best class.
-> At Queen level 8, you will lose the nest shield that’s activated by default for newbies. Once the shield is removed, other players will be able to invade your nest and can loot the resources. Make sure to hatch the ant troops, increase power, research/evolve to increase nest defense.
Now, let’s check out the progression walkthrough: –
Focus On The Basic Things To Progress⇓
(1) TASKS: Follow the main tasks in the beginning. At the bottom of the screen, tap on the tasks menu; there you will see the main tasks and daily tasks. Main Tasks not only give you rewards but also help you to progress in the right way.
(2) Join an alliance: There are so many benefits of joining an alliance; if you join an alliance in The Ants Underground Kingdom, alliance members can help you by reducing the construction time, assisting resources, and also you get access to daily tasks, alliance store, alliance rewards, etc.
(3) Keep Hatching Ant Troop: You can hatch ant troops in Guardian Barrack, Shooter Barrack, Carrier Barrack. You will need ant troops to fight in PvE, PvP, Rally Battles, Event Battles, Alliance Battles. These barrack buildings are of combat type. Tap on the build option in the lower-right corner -> combat -> there you will find the barrack buildings, rally centers, healing pool to heal injured ant troops.
If you upgrade the barrack buildings, you will be able to hatch more troops at a time and also unlock a new tier of the same type of troop. Higher-tier ant troops possess more stats and can do well in the battles.
(4) EVOLVE: Evolution Fungi and Troop camp are the two facilities where you conduct researchers and unlock new passive bonuses. For example; rapid production, march capacity, ATK, DEF, and more. Evolution Fungi is a development-type building. Go to the build option -> Develop -> evolution fungi.
(5) The fifth progression tip here is to take all the buildings to the level where your queen is. DON’T UPGRADE THE QUEEN if other facilities or buildings are not on the level where your queen is.
For instance, if the queen level is 12, make sure that other facilities or buildings are also on the same level before you start the level 13 queen upgrade.
That’s because there are so many facilities in the game and you don’t want to left out some buildings. If you keep all the buildings at the same level, you will achieve max growth. It’s just an organizing tip.
Guide To Ant Population⇓
To build some facilities in the anthill or produce more honeydew, you will need to meet a certain ant population. For instance, Aphid is the facility where aphids provide a constant supply of Honeydew. To upgrade the aphid facility, you will need to have the mentioned ant population. For example; level 10 aphid will require a 6.5 K Ant Population.
In the top-left corner, you can see the current ant population. If you tap the population number in the top-left, the game will show you the status; either the population is declining or on growth or has reached max limit.
Keep Supplying The Resources If You Don’t Want Population To Decline
The ant population will decline if you don’t supply enough resources to the ants. Feeding Ground is the facility at your base or anthill where you can supply resources like meat or water and maintain the ant population. If the supply is enough, the ant population will grow and reach its max capacity.
How To Increase Max Ant Population
To increase the ant population in The Ants Underground Kingdom, you will need to build or upgrade the worker ant nest facility at your base or anthill. Worker Ant Nest is an ant population type building. Tap the build button option in the lower-right corner -> ant population -> worker ant nest -> build. Once that’s done, start upgrading it.
The Ants Underground Kingdom Resources Guide⇓

The more worker ants you have, the more facilities you can build or upgrade at a time.
Guide To Special Ants In The Ants Underground Kingdom⇓
Special Ants can be stationed in the nest on the buildings or sent to march outside the nest for PvP, Rally, Gathering, PvE battles.
There are two types of special ants in The Ants Underground Kingdom; war type and develop type. War type special ants excel in invading enemies or in battles.

Guide To Formation Load, Troop Capacity⇓
Tap the X2 Swords icon in the top-left to open the formation screen. There you can assign one special ant and ant troops. The number of ant troops that you can assign in a formation slot depends on the special ant. So if you want to send more ant troops on a march, you need to upgrade the level of Special ants or their skill if it affects the troop cap.
The more troops in a march, the more troop load. High troop load means you can gather more resources outside the nest. Tap on the nest icon in the lower-right corner -> tap on the search icon button in the lower-left -> you can send march to fight Ladybug, Locust, Snail, Orb Weaver, Termite Hill, and Lizard. Or send the march to gather resources from Woodclouse Colony, Bush, Wet Soil Pipe, Sand Pile, and also diamonds.
Although, diamond resource tiles are rare.
