In the words of Bruce, “OH NOOOOOOOOOO!!!”
Well here is the basic rundown of just how you can toast this Giant Marshmallow. Maybe get a lil treat out of it too. Let’s get started.
HOW DO I GET ROCKETS?
In order to “defeat” him, you need to collect rockets from various Characters in the game. It is a very good idea to stock up on a good amount of each color before you start your attack. The more hits, the better the payout. As you can see, the possible color you will get will vary on task and Character. So far, only Jason guarantees at least one of each 3 Colors. Payouts are ALWAYS.
Now with the new update, you will also be able to find rockets in the New Halloween House Decorations.
HOW DO I KNOW WHAT ROCKETS I NEED?
If you tap on Stay Puft, the pop up for his info will show on the screen. In the lower middle section, you will see just how many and what kind of Rockets will be required for the current Defeat. This will change and vary per player on the amount and the Rocket Type.
You will also see along the Left side how many of each Rocket you have earned. This will help you keep track of how many total you have acquired so far if you want to pile a lot to try to hit the 25X and beyond Multiplier.
These were the Rocket requirements for my game. Yours may vary.
HOW DO I KNOW MY PAYOUT?
Your payout will depend on where you are on your Multipliers and what Rocket you currently are using to defeat him. The Multiplier will be listed along the Right hand side. The S’mores cookie will show your current Level you are at.
The Base Award is dependent on what Rocket you are being asked to attack him with. You can see the Breakdown of the 3 Rockets and what they pay on the Right hand side in Stay Puft’s Body Shadow. You can verify the Rocket Type in the “You Need” area in the Lower Middle. You can also see what Base Reward you are currently on in the Upper Middle where it says “Base Reward”.
So again, that is BASE REWARD x CURRENT MULTIPLIER = TOTAL SPIRIT VIALS PAID OUT.
To give you an idea of what that means, here is a chart of what you could win on each level with each Rocket.
|Red Gasoline Rocket||40 Spirit Vials||40||80||200||480||1000|
|Blue Graham Cracker Rocket||50 Spirit Vials||50||100||250||600||1250|
|Purple Chocolate Rocket||60 Spirit Vials||60||120||300||720||1500|
WHAT ABOUT THE WEEKLY CHALLENGE?
The payouts on the Marshmallow Goop were all over. I am going to have to play around with it a bit more to get exacts. Again, gotta wait an hour on each one. Lol.
So I wanted to test this out a few times just to make sure. Here are our results for Marshmallow Goop Payouts.
As you can see, it will only take 4 hits in a row on Stay Puft to meet your Challenge Goal. Or…3 times, a 24 hour reset, and then 2 more times. It all depends on what YOU want to do and how many Rockets YOU collect. You only need 10 Marshmallow Goop Total to meet this weeks Challenge. It really should go quick if you have some rockets stored up.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I HAVE ENOUGH ROCKETS?
If you have collected enough Rockets to Attack Stay Puft, the options to “ROAST HIM” will appear at the Lower Middle. Just tap on it.
A cut screen will pop up showing Stay Puft having a Rocket dropped on him by the WWII Dive Bomber, Flames burst up all over him and start to melt him, he spits out fire, then disappear in a puff.
WHAT IS WITH THE 1 HOUR TIMER?
When you are done defeating Stay Puft, he will “run away”. He will NOT return for an hour. You can check to see how much time is left til his return by tapping on the now empty space where he once was.
The pop up screen will now open and show you how much longer you need to wait. Just to make sure you got it…it even says so… “GOT IT!”
You will also know he is back when you see him over there yelling and hollering at you again. Lol.
WHERE DID MY ROCKET TASKS GO?
SIDE NOTE: While Stay Puft is “hiding” your game may notice he is gone and therefor no more tasks for him needed. What does this mean? If your tasks ri earn Rockets “vanish”, it may because he is in that 1 hour reset and not really “in the game”. My suggestion is to make sure you reset ALL characters on their Rocket seeking tasks BEFORE you Defeat him. Also do NOT tap on the tasks to earn Rockets while he is “out of the game” during that hour or you may not get ANY Rockets at all for a payout from the Characters, as again…the game does not recognize he is there. (We saw this in every past event.) Now they may go and fix this. They have before. Just double check if this is YOUR cause. Report it if you do see it please.
WHAT IS WITH THE 24 HOUR TIMER?
As with previous events, the main “Bad Guy” needs to be destroyed. If you continually destroy him within a time frame, you can keep earning the highest amount over n over n over n over. You only have a set amount of time to be able to do this to keep your multiplier payout as high as you possibly can. That set amount is 24 hours. What does that mean? Well if you collect a lot of each of the 3 different color Rockets, you can continually “defeat” him over n over n over and that clock will keep resetting to 24 hours and not run out. Once you stop (or as soon as you defeat him) the timer will start to count down. If you do NOT “defeat” him in that 24 hour period, the clock will run down to Zero, reset, and you will have to start once again at the bottom multiplier.
So to be a lil more simplistic. You start out at a 1X Multiplier and continue to move up til you MAX out at 25X. If you keep “defeating” him, you can stay at the upper most 25X Multiplier and get a LOT of Vials paid out to you again and again. If you run out of Rockets and the timer hits Zero, then resets, you have to start all over again at 1X.
So plan your collection and attacks wisely to get the most out of your Rockets.
HOW DO I CHANGE THE ROCKETS STAY PUFT WANTS?
This is all done automatically. You never know what one you will get next. No one will. All you can do is try and hope it is what you have. A way to see if another option will be provided is to allow the 24 hour timer to run down and let Stay Puft reset. This may or may not change the color, but it is worth a try if you want to see what happens. Just know you will lose a day of Defeats or less depending on how much time is left.
There you have it. A bit more detailed idea of just what to do with this Giant Marshminkter (yup….that’s what I call em…wanna fight bout it? Lol.) Did this help you out? Give you more of an idea of what to do? Answer all your questions? Wanna go make S’mores now? Let me know below…I got the fire pit already going.
