RELEASE THE DEMON!! So here we are another week gone by and yet another incarnation of Stewie has arrived. Is it bad of me that I like him with the horns n wings? Lol.
Well I am sure you are all anxiously awaiting the details, so let’s hop to it.
First off, the trigger points on this one. For each Phase in this event, you must complete the prior one to unlock the new content and quests. So in order to unleash Demon Stewie, you need to have completed your “Bombs Away Part 7” missions from the Minion Stewie questline.
Once completed with Bombs Away Part 7, Peter will kick start the Demon Child Part 1 after some funny dialog with him n Lois (Both in Costume). As you can see, it is essentially still Giant Stewie (so those tasks you need to complete for characters like Blobulous will still work.)
You will see that a new Comic Book Page has been added as well as a quick link to the details for Demon Stewie.
At some point AFTER completing Demon Child Part 1, you will see a notification pop up for this weeks Challenge. You will then have 4 days as soon as that timer icon pops into your task bar, so choose wisely on how you want to acquire Harpoons until it is triggered as you need to Defeat him 9 times in 4 days. (That’s 2 days if you let it reset twice back to the 1X mark.)
A second pop up also will appear after launching into the Demon Child questline. This one is pretty cool. It just requires you to run a streak on Demon Stewie with out letting him reset to earn you a really cool animated Action Movie Set for your town. Now we know it says streak, but for some it still awards at 15X. Either way, pretty cool.
Here is what the Action Movie Set looks like… in action. There are flames and fire a blaze, the manhole cover is blown up then lands back down, the lights on the car are active, as well as the water out of the fire hydrant bursting where the cop car hit it. (For those of you wondering, yes the cop car hitting a hydrant does remind me of another one in a “Clown Land”. Lol.)
Now that you have the basics, on to a bit more details about the Demon Stewie himself. First off, the new form of attack.
WHY DO I NEED HARPOONS NOW?
The new incarnation of the Giant Stewie is a bit more evil and needs a bit more evil type of weapons to take him down. Insert the Harpoons.
I HAVE PESTICIDES THOUGH, WHAT DO I DO WITH THEM?
You may have been saving up and just about to hit a Streak when the new content lauched, so what to do with all the Pesticide you have been hoarding? Trade it in of course.
If you still have Pesticide hanging around by the time the Demon is released, you will notice the option of a Dr. Manhattan Rupert Pesticide Conversion Box pop up in your Event Menu. Once you tap on it, you will start the conversion process. Each tap gives you a Conversion Box you can open to see how many Harpoons you received in exchange.
(p.s. am I the ONLY one that wants a Dr Manhattan skin now for Rupert?)
Back the the Conversion. The amount you get in return will vary. (They will NOT be a 1:1 ratio, so be ready.) This will however give you a jump start on the Demon Stewie and the Challenge Vehicle for this week. The options of Harpoons you can win inside the boxes are as follows:
You will be able to continue collecting and opening Rupert Boxes until you have depleted all your Pesticides. Then, the Rupert Box will disappear from your menu.
WHERE ELSE CAN I GET HARPOONS?
Several new tasks were added with the new Phase, or switched out so the characters can now earn items needed for the Demon Giant Stewie. I am happy to see more of the town Characters were tossed in the mix.
|Character||Task||Time/ Payout||Blam!/ Harpoon|
|Red Hot Lois||Buy Shiny New Harpoons||2hrs/ $30, 20XP||6 Blam!/ 1 High-Tech Harpoon or 1 Old Timey Harpoon|

You can also get High-Tech Harpoons from Latcher Stewie.
HOW DO I DEFEAT DEMON STEWIE?
The game provides you a quick overall tutorial of what to do to defeat him.
It is essentially still Giant Stewie…with wings and horns…so the concept for taking him down will be the same. After you have collected Harpoons, Tap on the Convention Center. (Tapping on the Target won’t open it.)
Once you tap on it, it will open the Vanquish Demon Stewie Screen.
From here you can see how many Harpoons you need for the Current Blam! Level as well as how many you have already of each kind. (Each Level will require a specific amount of Harpoons, though the Harpoons themselves will vary). Here is the breakdown.
|Level||Harpoons Needed||Blam! Payout (Base x Multiplier)|
If you have enough Harpoons, the option to “VANQUISH DEMON STEWIE!” will be at the bottom. If you do not, it will say “FIND HARPOONS!” and you will need to go and earn some more.
Once you tap on “VANQUISH DEMON STEWIE!”, it will go to a cut screen showing him getting engulfed in flames and disappearing into the Convention Center.
You will then be awarded your Blam! payout and will not be able to Vanquish him again for another 30 seconds.
Now remember, once you hit the top tier of 30X , you can keep going and going at that top tier and continually use the extra 5 Harpoon difference to keep hitting the MAX Blam! amount. Or if you prefer to keep it low and while you collect enough to keep a streak, you can hit any point on the Levels and then stop. Letting the 24 hour timer run all the way out. It will then reset to 1X and you can start again. (Don’t forget once you get the pop up for the Streak Action Movie Set Prize, you only have to run a streak once to get it.) Also don’t forget to get your Challenge Car for this week.
There you have it, the breakdown of the new incarnation of Giant Stewie. What do YOU think of him? Have you hit the streak yet and got the Movie Set? Do you have a favorite task that earns Harpoons? Are there any other Characters you wished had a Harpoon Earning task? Let us know.
