Pinecone Cookie is a Bomber Cookie positioned in the Front that was first introduced in Cookie Run: Kingdom during Version 3.11 “Stories by the Fireplace” update and has been playable ever since. In Version 4.16 of the “Dawn of the Dragon” update they finally received a Magic Candy which has greatly improved their kit and playability. This guide will help you on how to build Pinecone Cookie, how to obtain them, and the ways to level them up.
How to obtain Pinecone Cookie in Cookie Run: Kingdom
Pinecone Cookie is an Epic Cookie and hence can be obtained through the Gacha. There are many ways to obtain Pinecone Cookie’s Soulstones such as,
- Mileage Shop: Available in the Gacha section and bought through Mileage Points from pulling Cookies.
- Kingdom Arena Medal Shop: Available exclusively through the Kingdom Arena. Players have to participate in PvP battles and ultimately win to obtain the Medals of Victory currency to exchange with the Soulstones. In every Shop reset which lasts for 3 days, there are 2 Epic Cookie Soulstones purchases in stock where each purchase will give you 2 Soulstones. A total of 4 Soulstones can be collected in total.
- Guild Medal Shop: Available exclusively through joining a Guild. Players have to participate in Guild Battles to obtain the Heroic Medal currency to exchange them with the Soulstones. Just like the Kingdom Arena, players can get 2 Soulstones for each purchase, where there are 2 purchases in stock. This means a total of 4 Soulstones can be obtained in every Shop Reset lasting 3 days.
- Rainbow Shell Gallery: Located inside Touc’s Trade Harbor after you upgrade it. The soulstones can only be exchanged with the Rainbow Pearls currency which can be obtained by shipping various goods through the Ship Harbor. You can obtain 5 Soulstone Cookies. The Shop resets every 2 Days so players have to keep a lookout on which Soulstone Cookies comes out every rotation.
- World Exploration: Complete World Exploration Dark Mode Stages 17-3, and also Master Mode Stage 5-28 to obtain their Soulstones. You can only farm each stage 3 times every reset day.
Pinecone Cookie in Cookie Run: Kingdom
If you see a little Cookie running among the trees, it’s probably Pinecone Cookie, the mighty keeper of the forest. Get outta the way! Busy, busy! The forest is so vast, yet there’s only one Pinecone Cookie! There is so much to do: help the forest animals prepare for winter hibernation, straighten out the quarreling birds, find and scratch that itchy patch of bark for the oak tree, and much more!
Each choco bark layer of Pinecone Cookie’s imposing hat is filled with eagerness to protect their woodland home. That’s right: the forest has been their home for as long as they can remember—which is why they prefer the company of trees and animals.
Yes, the mighty forest keeper is hardly familiar with the ways of their fellow Cookies! But what does it matter when they know everything about the forest dwellers and can understand the language of the rustling leaves?!

Pinecone Cookie receives a Magic Candy during the ‘Dawn of the Dragon’ update back in Version 4.16. To briefly summarize the purpose of Magic Candy, they are an equipable item solely created to use for the intended Cookie to exponentially buff the playable Cookie and their kit. The Magic Candy is only given to certain Cookies that have long been power-crept due to the ever-changing META of the game to make them more viable to use in especially PvP-focused battles.
|Thanks to the piled up snow, Pinecone Cookie will have their DEF and DMG Resist increased while on the Tree Golem. They will also become resistant to ATK SPD Debuffs. After getting off the Tree Golem, Pinecone Cookie will gain an HP Shield with HP equal to a portion of their Max HP. (Cooldown: 12 seconds).

Best Toppings for Pinecone Cookie in Cookie Run: Kingdom
Pinecone Cookie has an assortment of Toppings to choose from depending on what you prefer in their build. Additionally, after the Version 4.14 update, all Cookies or non-cookies that are released and have ties with the ‘Icicle Yeti’s Winter Song‘ storyline will be able to use the Frosted Crystal Toppings. These Toppings work just like the Moonkissed Toppings where the damage multipliers are boosted up from regular Toppings.
Since Pinecone Cookie is a Bomber Cookie and deals a high amount of damage, a full 5-piece set of Searing Raspberry Cookie is a good viable option that can be recommended. This can help increase their damage potential and dish out high numbers.
Searing Raspberry (Frosted Crystal Toppings)
|A searing berry like this one can increase the Cookie’s ATK.
Equip 3: +3% ATK
Solid Almond (Frosted Crystal Toppings)
|A solid almond like this one can increase the Cookie’s DMG Resist.
Equip 5: +5% DMG Resist
Other alternative Toppings can be the 5-piece Solid Almond Toppings. Since Pinecone Cookie is unfortunately at the Front position, they will be more perceptible to receiving most of the damage. Hence it will be advisable to use Solid Almond to increase their damage resistance.
With the added Magic Candy and the additional buffs in their kit, Pinecone Cookie is an overall good unit, especially for any F2P players who do not have Sea Fairy Cookie or other better Bomber Cookies. Pinecone Cookies works best in both the Kingdom Arena and the PvE.
