In this Dead Cells – Cell Farming Guide, we will show you the best way to farm cells as you progress into the game. In Dead Cells the only way to skill up, add new weapons and mutations, is if you find a Cell Forge between each main area. The Cell Forge in return asks for Cells to give you these items. We have detailed for you the ways in which you can easily and quickly farm cells that you can use to upgrade weapons and skills with.
Dead Cells is a rouge-lite, Castlevania- inspired action platform game that is developed by Motion Twin. Dead Cells is a 2d combat game with tough bosses and enemies that you have to fight through. The game is currently available for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Dead Cells – Farming Cells Detailed Guide
Our Guide in Farming Cells will show you the methods in which you can effectively farm cells in the game. There are two ways to farm cells. The first is the slow original method in the lowest difficulty and the other is the speed run. Follow our guide below for a detailed explanation of each of these methods
Standard Farming Method (Easy)
Farming of cells in Dead Cells is a slow process, especially during the early stages of the game. The cells do not normally start pouring in until you reach Tier 5 and Tier 6 Biomes, which are the Clock Tower and High Peak Castle. If you play at the lowest difficulty, the most amounts of cells you will receive in an area are 50 or more cells.
Follow the steps below to get the most amounts of cells in an area during a standard run of the game. Kill every enemy in the map. It will be highly likely that any enemy, whether small or big will drop Cells.
- Scavenge every area behind every door. You may come across gold doors with cell containers very early in the game.
- Defeat the first two bosses. These bosses are relatively easy to beat and can give you a decent amount of Cells after you defeat them at the lowest difficulty
Speed Run Method (Hard)
You do not necessarily have to be a speed runner to farm cells in this method. But rather skip enemies and sprint to the next exit of each biome. Your goal in this method is to move as fast as possible by sticking to the main hallways and top level biomes.
It is worth mentioning that you need all four movement runes for this method. This is because every biome has a Time-Lock Door blocking a pile of treasure items. Your objective is to be fast enough and hit all the Time-Lock doors, grab the treasure as quickly as possible and run to the next Time-Lock door in sequence.
Below, we have detailed where to begin and what sequences you have to go through to complete a speed run and how much time it takes in each region
- Promenade of the Condemned can be done in 2 minutes
- Ossuary can be finished that takes the time up to 8 minutes
- Black Bride will finish at the 15 minute mark
- Stilt village will add 2 more minutes taking it to 17 minutes total
- Forgotten Sepulcher will take the total to 26 minutes
- Clock Room you will have to defeat the boss
All in all it takes less than 30 minutes to farm at least 260 cells in a run which is the most amounts of cells you can get. If you are still struggling with this route, you can shorten the speed run up to Black Bridge where you still can get around 120 cells in 15 minutes.
