Advanced Cheating Techniques

  • Auto-Clicker Secrets: Crafting an invisible army of automated clickers to do your bidding.

Imagine being too tired of clicking in a game that focuses entirely on, well, clicking. In the case of Cookie Clicker, this is an understandable and common issue, so you may want to use a little help. Instead of physically clicking on the cookie once, make your browser do it for you. Enter console and type:

setInterval(function(){Game.ClickCookie()}, 10);

As a result, your browser will click the cookie every ten milliseconds. You can also enable auto-clicking using another code that allows you to specify how often the cookie will click:

var autoClicker = setInterval(Game.ClickCookie, );

Is this existential crisis really just about cookies, or is it something else? And what is life when all the cookies are ultimately yours?

Just think about the consequences. Cheating is no joke, and now you will have to live with the knowledge of what you did.

Use this new knowledge and do whatever you want! And if you’re worried that too many cheat codes will ruin all your fun, use just one or a few to elevate your favorite Cookie Clicker experience.
