How do I upgrade my Cookie Run Kingdom toppings?
If you want your toppings to pack a bit more of a punch, then you can upgrade them using topping pieces and coins – as long as your upgrade is successful, that is.
The success rate of your topping upgrade depends on the current level of the topping, and temporarily increases by a small percentage every time your upgrade fails until you’re successful.
The maximum upgrade of your topping depends on its rarity:
- You can upgrade XS toppings to a maximum of +6
- You can upgrade S toppings to a maximum of +9
- You can upgrade M toppings to a maximum of +12
Toppings also gain a random bonus effect when you get them to +6, +9, and +12. S toppings can have a maximum of two bonus effects, and M can have three.
