UPDATE: We were able to verify in our game that if you defeat the Cowboy Yeti and THEN trigger the Challenge, defeating the Childish Yeti will still trigger the Challenge to complete (even though he is a step up and more HP). So it is up to you to reset the time and hit the Viking and Cowboy Yeti again or just continue and hit the Childish Yeti and defeat them to get the Challenge prize.
Hello There Clammers!
Happy Yeti invading Phase 2 of Miracle on Spooner Street! By now the storm should be blowing in full force in the streets of your Quahog, as the Yeti has invaded the town! (and interrupted Mort’s Christmas shoppers!)
For the week 2 Challenge of Miracle on Spooner Street you’re required to defeat the Cowboy Yeti once in 4 days. Now I know many of you are freaking out about this..and trying to do the math saying it’s not fair, it’s too hard, they force you to use clams. Sound about right so far? Well…i’m here to tell you to STOP FREAKING OUT! Really…it’s not as hard as you think it is.
Let’s take a look at a strategic approach to beating the Cowboy Yeti and earning the Rupert Snowman!
So you want a built snowman huh? After all it IS Rupert….I’m sure we all wish we could have his abs…
Well I’m not gonna lie to you. To get this built snowman it’s going to…well suck. This week’s challenge will take dedication to the game. You’ll have to check in to your game OFTEN. It’s difficult…BUT not impossible.
Again, let me make it clear…it’s going to suck & be massively annoying to do. But it’s not impossible to do. Here are some tips/strategies to help you achieve your goal:
Remember: This is going to be a CHALLENGE. So don’t start this until you’re ready and have time (a solid day) to devote to doing it.
DO NOT Trigger the Challenge UNTIL You Have Hanukkah Mort.
This challenge is basically impossible if you don’t have Mort helping Lois. (it’s still not impossible at that point, but it mine as well be).
Note: If you purchased John, you don’t need Mort to start it. Just John and Lois can achieve this.
Remember, Peter triggers this week’s Challenge around part 2 or 3 of the main questline. So if you don’t want to see the ! over Peter don’t finish part 2 or Part 3 of the main questline. If you do finish that…you’ll have a little buffer. Peter will first trigger the Clam Offer, then he’ll trigger the quest to get Hanukkah Mort (you can still get him with out triggering the quest), finally he’ll trigger the challenge. So, just don’t tap on Peter…and if you do you’ll have a 2 tap buffer before triggering the challenge.
Remember it’s the COWBOY Yeti you have to beat, NOT the Childish one.
Seems a lot of you are getting confused and think you have to defeat the top level Yeti to win the challenge. You don’t. The Cowboy Yeti is the middle Yeti and he’s got a health of 10.
After you get Mort, Don’t Trigger the Challenge right away. First get close to defeating the Viking Yeti.
Here’s what I mean by this. Don’t start the challenge right away and waste several hrs of your time defeating a Yeti that you don’t have to. The Challenge says defeat the Cowboy Yeti, it doesn’t say you have to defeat the Viking Yeti and then the Cowboy Yeti.
So, use Lois to get the Viking Yeti to a point where he has 1 health point left. You’ll see why in a minute.
Start Mort’s Defeat the Yeti Task Just as Lois is about to beat the Viking Yeti.
As the time for Lois’s Defeat the Yeti task nears 0, send Mort to beat the Yeti (or John). So when Lois defeats the Viking Yeti and he’s in his 4hr “rest” period…Mort is still throwing snowballs at him. This will give you a head start on the challenge.
Don’t Trigger the Challenge Until AFTER the Cowboy Yeti Appears.
Why waste time when you don’t have to? Wait until after you see the Cowboy Yeti to start the Challenge. Once he appears then tap on Peter to trigger the challenge.
After you Trigger the Challenge Send Lois AND Mort Every 4hrs to Defeat him.
Obviously if you have John this will go faster.
Worst case it will take Lois and Mort at 1 heart point hit every 4hrs each, 20hrs to complete this. BUT you should achieve it faster, as every 2 hits seem to be a 2 point hit. Set your clock for every 4hrs so you can be sure to reassign the task frequently.
You have FOUR days to do this. So if you mess up or don’t get it right…follow the steps above again (especially the part about starting the task BEFORE the Cowboy Yeti appears). You should get at least 3 shots at this, but if you follow the steps above correctly you should get it done in 1.
Again…I know it sucks BUT it is NOT impossible! This just takes a lot of planning and time management to get it down just right. If you use the tips above you should have no issues beating the Yeti. The important thing is to make sure you check your game frequently & don’t trigger the task until after you have Mort. With out Mort (or John if you already made the purchase) it’s near impossible to do. So as long as Lois has a Yeti fighting partner you should be fine!
What do YOU think of the challenge (remember our Guidelines)? Have you started to defeat the Yeti? Did you purchase John? Sound off in the comments below, you know we LOVE hearing from you!
