There are several known glitches in Infinity Blade 3 that allow you to make instant (unlimited) gold or battle chips (BCs). This guide will walk you through some of those glitches. Keep in mind that, as glitches, Chair may fix them at any time, and I do not know what will happen when they do. Use these glitches at your own risk.

**Note: The Soul Hunter update fixed these glitches, so they won’t be available in 1.1 or later. There is, apparently, another glitch with two character slots. If you go back and forth between them, you can duplicate certain things like BCs from Trials. But some have had their data wiped doing this, so try it at your own risk! I think the game is pretty balanced now, so I don’t think it’s worth the risk and haven’t tried it myself. Doing so also makes it more likely that ChAIR will do something like in 1.1 to delete them all. They just gave us a huge gift (see here for more info) and a huge update, so enjoy the game and please don’t use the new glitch. 🙂 ***

Gold Glitches:

1) Make sure you have some gems in your gem bag. Go to the Gem Cutter, and move a gem into the forge. While it’s in one of the three forge slots, select the whitish yellow circular “sell” button in the lower left corner of the screen. You’ll get the gold, but when you leave the Gem Cutter, you’ll still have the gem. This is a really easy way to make more gold if you’re running short, but I suggest you don’t rack up too much gold with this, or it can ruin all the fun.


Battle Chip Glitches:

1) The battle chip glitch is not quite as simple. You can only do it while at the Merchant Ship. You need to scroll to an item that can be purchased using battle chips (like an herb or a key) and then press the “sell” tab and the buy button at the same time (the sell tab should be pressed slightly earlier). Be careful not to sell your equipment instead or buy the herb/key. I find it helps to hold both buttons down together and try to release them at the exact same time. It takes practice to get it right. You should hear a little “ka-ching!” when it works. Good luck!

As you can see here, I used the Butterfly for the glitch, so I didn’t get much from it, but you can see the amount climbing. If you have a more expensive item available (like a Rare Root) , you’ll get considerably more chips, as you can see below. The merchant won’t sell you any items that you don’t have room for. So a good way to give yourself a chance of getting a good item in there to do this with is to have all other herbs (besides Rare Root) full. That way you won’t end up with something that won’t give you much BCs. Also, it’s easier if you use a weapon that has a gem in it so you can’t accidentally sell it.

    So for the battle chip glitch, exactly what
    Are the rewards i would get?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You get a nice chunk of battle chips if you do it correctly.

      1. thunderbug009

        what version is this?

  2. Dark

    Thanks! Does the glitch work even if i dont have enough battle chips to buy the item too?
    Also, if the glitch works perfectly, what is gonna happen? Just an increase of chips, or anything else?
    Really appreciate the replies, thanks in advance!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Hmmm… If you don’t have enough battle chips, I’m not sure what happens. It might actually be easier bc then you can’t buy the item by accident. You can’t do the glitch unless an item is at the merchant that is bought with battle chips. So if you accidentally buy the last one, you’ll have to wait till next time to do the glitch. But as long as the item’s still at the merchant, you can keep making battle chips off of it.

    2. AppUnwrapper

      And yes, if it works you should see your number of battle chips increase, probably by thousands.

  3. Dark

    Holy… It worked o.O you meant by a matter of ten thousands LOL

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Haha yeah. Depends on the item you use. The Butterfly was giving me very little, but the Rare Root gave me like 70,000 each time. Kind of breaks the game a bit 😉

    2. AppUnwrapper

      I’m actually enjoying the game a lot more now that I’m not waiting for the forge. I’m actually getting experience again! Yay!

      1. Dark

        Yea agreed the game is much more fun now that I could experiment with so much more stuff!

      2. Max Starreveld

        App, if you do a single deathless quest it finishes everything, just sayin.

  4. Samuel Wong

    Thanks of the post. But I learned a little late for a newer release just out last night.

  5. Zoso

    Great…..until update!

  6. Lynx

    The bug for selling the gem to the gem cutter and getting it back is gone… And I didn’t even update it…

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Oh really? I haven’t had the time to play today, so I didn’t even check.

      1. Max Starreveld

        No it still works

  7. jennik

    Confirmed: gem cutter selling glitch is gone. Just sold my rare treasure gem for the very last time 🙂

    1. jennik

      However… the update is great and there is lot of fun until I will need more money again 🙂

      1. Max Starreveld

        IT STILL WORKS i have done it like twenty times, not a single fail.

  8. Scott

    The new release was quite the trick to play. The best I can tell all the special treats have been removed. No more creating gems using potions and they took away thousands of chips.

  9. Jerry

    I just did this procedure earlier with small key that is sold in the merchant, this time it’s the gold that is increasing not the BC… but after I sell all my duplicates, it stopped working. -_-

    1. AppUnwrapper

      This is after updating? Interesting. How much gold did you get from it?

      1. Jerry

        Yes it’s after the update, I noticed the amount isn’t certain and the value changes.. I should’ve done more tries before selling all my duplicates, because it stops after selling those duplicates. more trial and errors.. (sigh)

        1. AppUnwrapper

          Interesting. Surprised they didn’t catch that. Let me know if you can repeat it and if it seems worth it?

          1. Jerry

            Alright, so here is the good news I’m going to confirm.. Luckily I met the merchant again and I did the same procedure with small key.. My gold was 7,283,454 to 7,350,954 to 7.4 million something making it 70k per action.. I’m not sure because as I was trying to take the 2nd screenshot, I accidentally minimized the app, so it restarted again… (sigh) but the conclusion is it still works, kinda hard to success compared to the previous version thou, because I’ve been trying for so many times already…

          2. Andrew

            So Im unsure as to what you’re talking about Jerry. Are you saying that you are selling items to the lady on the boat the same way as if you were to buy items from her and are obtaining gold? or are you saying you’re able to still do the BC glitch after the patch the same way as long as you have duplicates in your inventory?

  10. Johnny Ringo

    Hey can I get a bit more info on the BC cheat? The gold cheat still works for me, so I must have an older version, but I tried doing it with a small key. I must not be doing it right. After a few tries (luckily the only unequipped mastered item I have has a gem in it) I ended up accidentally buying the small key. Can you go over the process in more detail?


  11. Vishwesh

    Hey, the gold glitch doesn’t work! My gem got sold! Do you have any gold glitches for Version 1.1?

  12. Vince

    The glitch does not work:( Ps the hacks they show are bs none of them work I tried three different time no good

    1. AppUnwrapper

      As I noted, if you updated to version 1.1, they won’t work anymore.

      1. cramster

        What if you downloaded the previous compatible IB3 version and put it in iTunes and then synced it over to your iPhone and let your game load from the cloud, wouldn’t that theoretically work?

        1. AppUnwrapper

          How would you download the old version? Some people are using two devices, one with version 1.04 and one with 1.1.1 and managing to continue glitching. But if you already updated to 1.1, I think you’re out of luck. Maaaaybe if you still have 1.04 on your PC and you delete it from your device before syncing? It’s risky, though. You might just end up losing your progress.

  13. Vince

    Does any one know a way to get gold fast?

  14. Johnny Ringo

    Never Mind my earlier comment, they both work! Thank you SO MUCH! I don’t have to wait for the blacksmith, I can make rare darkfire gems, and also I can get maps that I wasn’t able to get with your battle chip cheat. And with the gold, I got all the best weapons with Isa and Siris, and I ca upgrade them continually to get ore xp. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!

    How do you find out these cheats anyway?

  15. sam

    Anyone know if this has been patched yet or is it still working ?
    And would a good way to also get money is do this glitch and buy rare gem wheels and just sell the gems on ?

    1. tyler

      definitely got patched. just tried it for myself, and it didn’t work.

  16. vile

    why didn’t the gold glitch work for me

  17. Demonseed

    Any know if there are ANY glitches still for still or they all patched ????

  18. Demonseed

    lol sorry about my spelling.

  19. Demonseed

    If there are any glitches still then please reply thank you.

    1. thunderbug009

      When forging gems, put the three gems you want to forge in the gem slots, and sell the gems while they are in there. Then click fuse. The gems should still fuse, and you get a bit of your money back.
      I have 1.3.2

  20. Lance Hamilton

    Glitches don’t work just lost my best gem for 900poison

  21. Ballisticmachine

    Is there any glitches for infinity blade 3 v1.3.1

  22. Pbbmmrocks

    Are there any new money glitches :/

    1. Max Starreveld

      The gem one still works.

  23. sick_and_tired_of_grinding

    this whole article should really be erased if there’s no useful info because of the update…. unless someone out there has a method that currently works (not counting the hacks… those are total scams). so basically, this is a desparate plea for help in order to avoid making this game completely take up all of any gamers’ time.

  24. Xenetos

    I have a legit method for acquiring quick gold.
    This requires:
    Access to Observatory Interlude (with Oslim)
    Queen’s Armor for Isa (recommended for maximum gold)
    Gold+ Gems
    Isa’s Lockpick III skill (opens medium chest for free)

    The first thing to do is to get the Queens armor to at least level 10 so all the gem slots are star-shaped.
    Fill each gem slot with Gold+ gems (max is 37%). Play the level and collect all gold bags and chests. By completing the level, you will be able to open four chests for free because of Isa’s lockpick skill. There will be two normal chest, one small chest, and one medium chest. The chests will give out a huge payout the higher your awakening. They may randomly give you gear but mostly gold.

    On Awakening 72 for Isa, with only 3 capped Gold+ gems (37%), I can earn about 60-70k gold from each of the normal chests, 90-120k on the small chest, and 160-210k gold from the medium. Altogether, this is about 370k gold each run; and each run should only take 5-10 minutes each time. If you are able to fill each gem slot, 11 in total, you can earn an incredible amount of gold quickly.

    Hope this helped!

    1. juffatoot

      my wow thankyou but how do you make gold + gems?

  25. Brah

    Hmmmm i tried the gem glitch,doesn’t work is it still working for any of you guys?

  26. Dylan

    Ya I’d dis not work for me either

    1. Dylan

      It didn’t

      1. I am the Worker ( I have his armor)

        A glitch that worked for me…
        Once you have 3 gems of the same type, meaning not price, but shape and color, size does not matter, I used some gems for gold+ because the outcome for price of the new gem can be greater.hit forge, and then sell the gem that you just got. Quickly buy a gem from the store, equip it, close the app, and open it as fast as you can. The gem you forged will not be there, but the money from which you sold it, and the 3 gems you forged to make the new one, will be there.
        Remember, it worked for ME, so don’t get mad if it doesn’t work for you.
        I recommend using cheap gems at first, so you don’t waste your money if it doesn’t work for you, I AM on the very latest update of 2015, and it worked

  27. T_Lube

    The only glitch that i know will continue working is in the arena. play the arena on “hard” once you are fairly well up, at least level 20, then as you may have noticed you can’t play for 24 hours again. well due to the fact that Apple apps are sand-boxed they information that they can access on your device is very limited. So once you play the arena app-switch over to your settings and change the date one day ahead. and go back in, the arena clock has now reset. if you are alright with playing you can beat the first five rounds in the areana on Hard and get 25k in gold, this took me 4-6 minutes, play for an hour and you end up with almost 400,000 gold. A little patience more and you can attain the Infinity blade from the store. Happy Hunting!

    1. Emog

      This glitch is not very helpful at all. You need to be a high level around (100) to reach 20 in arena mode. I am currently at rebirth 300 to the 4th. I get 200k gold per titan and each titan only has about 100k health.

    The gold cheat didn’t work for me…anyone knows why?
