Haunted Dorm Beginners Guide: Tips and Tricks

1. Pick a Bedroom that is surrounded by another Resident

One of the most important things to do in Haunted Dorm is to pick your bedroom before the night hunter comes. Therefore, you have to pick the best spot where you have another resident around your bedroom so you don’t have to face the hunter alone.

The weapons have a particular range, so once the hunter comes to your room, another resident’s weapons will automatically shoot it at a particular range and poke its HP.

2. Upgrade your Bed to produce more Gold

Do not rush yourself to invest your gold in weapons if your gold production is not high enough. Prioritize your gold to upgrade the bed to increase your gold production. The higher your bed level, the higher your requirement need in order to upgrade your bed.

At first, it will only need you to upgrade your gate. Until some certain points, it will also need you to have enough thunders in order to upgrade it. So, make sure that you have enough generators to produce enough thunders in no time.

3. Use CCTV to watch other players

You can use CCTV located above to watch another player’s progress. You have to keep in mind that fewer residents will increase the risk of hunters attacking you. With this CCTV, you can maintain your step and upgrade plans.

4. Watch Ads to upgrade your Door

Once in the game, the system will offer you short ads in order to upgrade your door for free. However, do not rush yourself to use this at the beginning of the game. It is wise to use it once you want to upgrade into gate 5 in order to unlock the advanced bed that will need 500 golds.

5. Always accept the Triple Take
