Hey there all you silly Quahogians. I see lots of comments all over about those wanting a lil more help and details on ways they can trap and max the Pesticide Bomb potential when defeating Minion Stewie’s. Well I have been playing round a bit in my game and here are a few things I have tried that may work for you too.
These lil buggers are fast, unpredictable, and change direction in a moments notice. So just what is the best way to get the most of them as you can. Well two methods for me have worked best.
First up…Lines and Rows.
I have rearranged my town in portions to “direct” the flow of Minions to a relatively general location. Basically I arranged the houses, buildings, etc to line up in pretty lil rows along the front facing area. So it a was nice straight line. Then I laid another row the same next to it but not same length. Instead I laid a 3rd row at the top running perpendicular to the other to. Capping off the area. That way the Stewie’s would essentially come into the area and be forced into one way in, one way out. Kind of bottle-necking them. This allowed me to corrall them in one spot and attack a lot at the same time. They try to escape at the bottom along the edge of the trees.
It also helps that when you tap on them, they will stop as well as change directions. So you can tap on several at a time to keep them in one area while awaiting more. If some start to go away, just tap them once…and wait…they should change direction and come back. Remember…ones running away usually avoid the fog cloud. You want them going into the cloud.
This option is a bit more difficult and will vary on what areas you have open as the game will only allow the target to move so far to the edges of your screen before it can’t go any further. I would suggest just tapping it open and seeing where your limits are so you know the best place to lay out your plans.
Next…A Fun Maze.
This one works best if you are constantly clearing all your Minion Stewie’s and monitoring their Spawn times to know when more will arrive. Essentially the Minion Stewie’s all spawn on one piece of town. The sidewalks. So ALL are removed from my town but a very small square. Around that square I have constructed a “Maze” to direct traffic so to speak. (Also a note that I placed this in an area the game seems to open on when I enter.)
I cleared out all the straggler Minion Stewie’s and then left the game for a lil bit. (20 to 30 minutes). When I returned, I got my trigger finger ready and waited. Sure enough…there was a puff of smoke in the lil spots the Minions were about to spawn on the sidewalks.
Giving it a bit, I waited as the all followed the Maze I created and started running in a straight line towards the exit. Now if you have a lot, you will want to hit them sooner as only 15 will clear and the rest will run. That or make it bigger.
Anticipating as they got closer…I zeroed in the cross hairs AHEAD of them and tapped the Bombs Away button knowing they were all walking INTO the cloud. 14 in one shot this go round. For those of you that never hunted before, this is essentially leading the target. You aim just ahead of them knowing they will movie INTO the shot. Also, hitting them in a confined area like a maze, even if they do try to run they are still too close to the cloud to get away from it.
If you do not do this as soon as they spawn…they will run off and you will have to find other ways to trap them again. So don’t just leave your game sitting open or you will miss the chance using this method. (Side note: Try not to leave gaps as they CAN walk through some items. I found the Lava Fence and Red Hot Lava Pit worked for me. Let me know if another worked for you.) 15 has been my Max so far. Haven’t been able to get more than that. So if a few run away…that’s ok.
FYI…this will also cause the Nerds to go round the maze. Made me giggle to watch. Easy to grab them all at once too. Lol.
So both methods will take a lil time, patience, and rearranging your town here n there. But if it works for you…it is a fun way to get more for you Bombs and to help hit those goals faster. Let me know if this helped you out. Have any ideas that worked out for you? Any other tips you want to share with your fellow readers? Feel free to add them in the comments.
Last bit…this made me giggle. Most of you probably already got this by now or saw it and cleared it too fast. I just keep laughing at it. Probably because my Uncle is in THIS kind of line of work. I showed it to him and he burst out laughing. Then added… “So THAT’S why we’re watching you when you travel!” Well played Uncle. Well played. Lol.
