Boomsday 101: Mutant Stewies

It’s the End of the World as we know it… and I feel… TOTALLY FREAKED THE FRAK OUT!! AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!

Our town is now going to be overrun with Mutant Eggy Weggies, Mutant Stewies, Mutant Humans, and DARYL??!! Oh wait, no, that was the OTHER show. Get back in the house Carl! GET IN THE HOUSE!!

Speaking of Eggy Weggies, in this post I will go over the Basics of the Stewie Eggs Piles and the Mutant Stewies.

Mutant Stewie Egg Piles Mutant Giant Stewie

Let’s take a closer look at these lil Mutant creepy crawly babies.


For more information on the Event, go to the Event Page HERE. 

 


WHEN DO THE STEWIE EGGS APPEAR?

Mutant Stewie Egg Piles

Stewie Eggs will begin to appear in Quahog once you begin the Phase 2 Main Questline, Peterpocalypse Again Part 1. I had 4 piles of them drop into my Quahog Roads not long after starting the New Questline, complete with a tentacle wiggling out of the pile. After that it seems a new one appears about every hour or several within 4+ hrs… up til I have about 7-8 Egg Piles MAX (at least that’s what I see in my game).

UPDATE 4/18: You will have a MAX of up to 8 in the game (verified). You can only release Mutant Stewies up to a MAX of 30 at a time. If you have 30, clear some out before tapping on any more Egg Piles. If you do not clear some Mutants out first and you are at MAX, then no more will Spawn when you tap the Egg Piles.  

UPDATE 4/19: Due to many stating “NO EGGS” flooding TinyCo, but TinyCo finding many eggs in the towns… they have added a “Visual” to the Egg Piles via the 1.21.5 App Market Update. A tall “steaming” green fog is now shining up from each Egg Pile. If you think you don’t have any Egg Piles, go looking for the Green Lights. 😉

Keep in mind, REALLY tall Buildings may still obstruct the view.

Green Steam Egg Piles

 


WHERE DO I FIND THE STEWIE EGGS? 

Mutant Stewie Egg Pile

They appear on the Sidewalks/Edge of Sidewalks of the Quahog Road patches, so look near all your Roads to locate them. Keep in mind they are smaller in size, so any Roads obstructed by Buildings or Decorations will make it hard to see the Egg Piles hiding.

If you removed Roads AFTER the Egg Piles spawned, you may want to go back to those sections and double check you didn’t leave Egg Piles behind. You can also use your “Place Roads” screen to see where all your Roads are in your game to make sure you check all locations.

Now it is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL for you to remove your Roads from your town to keep the Egg Piles to one area, just know that the less you have out in the open, the less time you will spend searching for Egg Piles.

 


HOW DO I CLEAR STEWIE EGGS?

Mutant Stewie Egg Piles

Just tap on the Egg Pile. Roughly 2-3 Mutant Stewies will then pop out along with +2CP. You have to move fast because the Mutant Stewies will too once released from the Eggs.

 


WHAT DO I NEED FOR MUTANT STEWIES? 

Minion Mutant Stewie 2

You will need to use Smoke Bombs to drop on them with the Detonator.

 


HOW DO I GET SMOKE BOMBS?

You can find Smoke Bombs from the following …

Smoke Bomb36 Smoke Bombs: 340 Clam IconClams

 


HOW DO I TARGET MUTANT STEWIES?

First, you will need to collect the Smoke Bombs so you have some handy. Once you have collected some Smoke Bombs, locate some Mutant Stewie Egg Piles and tap on them. You will then see 2-3 Mutant Stewies run off from each Egg Pile. At this point, tap on the Detonator Icon in the lower right corner of your screen.

Mutant Stewie Detonator Button

Tapping on the Detonator Icon will bring up the Targeting Screen for the Mutant Stewies. In the Center is the Target itself, you want to ensure you have the Mutant Stewies as close to this area as possible to get as many as you can. Move the screen around with your finger untill the Mutant Stewies are in the Center.

If you have no Mutant Stewies loose in the game, the screen will tell you “NO MUTANT STEWIES RIGHT NOW!“. If you have no Smoke Bombs earned for them, the screen will tell you “NO BOMBS“.

Mutant Stewie Target Screen

 

If you have Mutant Stewies running around town, you will see the screen show “BOMB THE MUTANT STEWIES“. If you have Smoke Bombs, you will see the screen show “DETONATE“, which you tap to release the Smoke Bombs on the target.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO CLEAR MUTANT STEWIES?

Giant StewieMinion Mutant Stewie 3

***SIDE NOTE*** for those that already have Mutant Stewie the Costume, just remember if he is wandering around that you can’t bomb him. Trust me, I tried… errr… I thought he was one and wasted some Smoke Bombs on him. Lol. Probably best to keep him on his Toilet Paper earning Task to keep him out of the way.

For me, I am using my “Maze Methods” again for this Event. As the Egg Piles originate on the Roads, I have the Roads in the middle of those Mazes. Here is how my current one looks. You can see the ONLY 3 patches of Roads I have active in my game, each surrounded by a series of Mazes to force Mutants as well as other items into a specific walking path.

Bunny's Maze

Again, OPTIONAL. It is completely up to you if you want to make Mazes in your town.

Here are some additional Posts on Mazes.

https://familyguyaddicts.com/2014/10/17/trick-or-treaters-corralling-the-kids/

 

Using the “Maze Method”, I just simply wait for a group of 2 or more Egg Piles to show up on one of my 3 Road patches in my Maze.

Mutant Stewie Eggs 2

Then I quickly tap as fast as I can to release the Mutant Stewies from the Egg Piles, tap on the Detonator Icon, Center the Screen over them, and then Tap on “DETONATE” to launch the Smoke Bomb on the large group.

Mutant Stewies Bombed 2

 

The Smoke Bomb releases on the scattering Mutant Stewies. Those caught in it’s path stop moving, then the Reward(s) pops out while the smoke clears. The screen will let you know just how many you got with the Smoke Bomb. 15 is my best.

Latcher Mutant StewieMutant Stewie Squid 2

Now for those that do NOT want to bother with a Maze, that is just fine. You can still try to keep several Mutant Stewies in one area. Tapping on them will stop them temporarily while they “Ink” you. Lol. They do NOT stay on the path or to the roads. They will scatter. Tapping on them will also change the direction they are moving.  Tap on them, redirect them, and Corral them the best you can to get the most with one Smoke Bomb.

FYI, they are REALLY tiny, so you may not see them easily in your town. This is why I try to keep them to one area if possible. If you have the timer on Commander Jesus started, you can tap on the “GO” option under his Lambswool Cloaks for the Mutant Stewies to be taken to them.

Mutant Stewies in Quahog

UPDATE 4/18: You can only release Mutant Stewies up to a MAX of 30 at a time. If you have 30, clear some out before tapping on any more Egg Piles. 

 


WHAT PAYOUTS DROP FROM MUTANT STEWIES?

Cigarettes Lambswool Cloak

Here is where it will really vary. My best suggestion is always try to take out as many as you possibly can. It seems the majority of the time, the MORE I got with my Smoke Bomb, the better payout.

Here are some of the Payouts I got in MY Games from Mutant Stewies, yours will vary.

Mutant Stewie 1 Mutant Stewies = 1 CigarettesCigarettes

Mutant Stewie 1 Mutant Stewies = Nothing

 

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 3 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 1 CigarettesCigarettes & 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 2 CigarettesCigarettes

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 7 CigarettesCigarettes & 1 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 3 Mutant Stewies = 1 CigarettesCigarettes & 1 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

 

Mutant Stewie 6 Mutant Stewies = 2 CigarettesCigarettes & 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 6 Mutant Stewies = 3 CigarettesCigarettes & 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 6 Mutant Stewies = 4 CigarettesCigarettes & 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

 

Mutant Stewie 9 Mutant Stewies = 5 CigarettesCigarettes & 4 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 9 Mutant Stewies = 2 CigarettesCigarettes & 5 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 9 Mutant Stewies = 9 CigarettesCigarettes & 4 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 9 Mutant Stewies = 9 CigarettesCigarettes

 

Mutant Stewie 10 Mutant Stewies = 6 CigarettesCigarettes & 3 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

 

Mutant Stewie 12 Mutant Stewies = 7 CigarettesCigarettes & 4 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

Mutant Stewie 12 Mutant Stewies = 9 CigarettesCigarettes & 2 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

 

Mutant Stewie 15 Mutant Stewies = 5 CigarettesCigarettes & 5 Lambswool CloakLambswool Cloaks

The “Nothing” Drops seemed rare and mostly if I just got one or two Mutant Stewies. Other times were just repeats of those already listed above.

They also drops Crisis PointCrisis Points and Family Guy CoinCoins at times, I did not however keep track of those amounts as I was focused on the Cigarettes and Cloaks. Let me know what yours drop if you notice.

 


HOW DO I KNOW I AM OUT OF MUTANT STEWIES?

The easiest way to tell is just tap on the Detonator Icon. Like noted above…

If you have no Mutant Stewies loose in the game, the screen will tell you “NO MUTANT STEWIES RIGHT NOW!“.

If you have Mutant Stewies running around town, you will see the screen show “BOMB THE MUTANT STEWIES“.

If you have a Task for them or tap on “GO” from Commander Jesus Lambswool, you will see this Pop Up”NO MORE MUTANT STEWIES”.

No More Mutant Stewies

Now both options do NOT necessarily mean you have no way to Smoke Bomb any Mutant Stewies, it just means none are running around loose in your Quahog. You can still go looking for Egg Piles to release more Mutant Stewies into your Quahog to Smoke Bomb.

Mutant Stewie Egg Piles

 


QUICK RECAP

  • Earn Smoke Bombs
  • Locate Egg Piles on your Roads
  • Tap on Egg Piles to release Mutant Stewies
  • Tap on Detonator Icon to access Target Screen
  • Center Target on Mutant Stewies
  • Tap DETONATE to launch Smoke Bombs
  • Get Reward(s)

 


There you have it, the overall idea of just how to get Mutant Stewies and the Lambswool Cloaks & much needed Cigarettes they are currently dropping.

Did this help you to better understand how to get them? What methods are you using that are working for you? Any tips you want to share with fellow Players? How many total have you Bombed with one Smoke Bomb? What kind of payouts are you seeing? Let us know.

  4. My detonator doesn’t work anymore. I hit the detonator icon, the UI slides off the screen for a few seconds and then comes back. I’ve tried reloading the game, resetting my device and hitting the detonator icon over and over but the aiming screen doesn’t come up.

    I did install an update for the game from the google store, it would have been after the week 3 content hit the game so maybe there’s some weird conflict somehow as I think the update has been there for a few days. I’ll reinstall in the morning if it still doesn’t work and see if that fixes things.

  5. I don’t have a detonate button. I have bombed the mutant Stewies before but have no idea how I got to the detonation part and now I know I have smoke bombs and Stewies running around but I don’t know how I’m supposed to get to actually bombing them.

  6. Does anybody else play in facebook? Just checking sth. I have an issue with bombs. It happened with the garlic bombs too. The first time I open the launcher, aim and detonate/launch, I have to wait 5 to 10 seconds for the smoke/garlic bomb to actually drop, meaning the mutants/bats are long gone by that time. For now I solve it by ‘wasting’ one bomb on an isolated wanderer trying to drop it where it will be so that it walks into the smoke, and I don’t close the game in the whole day (a pain, but it works). I’m curious about this thing. It’s happening on 3 different computers; I’m sure it’s not my RAM or anything pc-related. It didn’t happen when I shot Morts on my bf’s tablet (which it’s broken right now 😦 ), so it’s a facebook thing. Did anybody else noticed this?

  9. Is anyone else having a problem where tapping the Stewie egg piles doesn’t work? I made some mazes and such, and I have been waiting till I have two nests near eachother so I can hit as many as possible after tapping them, but several times now I have tapped one and then been completey unable to get the other one to work. really frustrating. This has happened in multiple areas of my town now, so I know it’s not just a problem with that one spot. :/ And I know I don’t have over 30 Stewies running around, either. 😦

I’m getting on average 3 or 4 wool to every one pack of ciggies for nearly two days now, and I haven’t needed them for the past 3 days…and with the depressive rate of crafting for round two-even with premium payouts, I don’t understand why the eggs aren’t dropping all cigarettes instead of dropping items that can’t be used?!?

  18. I think the Stewies come three to a clutch of eggs, unless you have too many wandering around loose. I’ve been able to keep them pretty well under control, so I’ve yet to reach 30 loose, and yet to see fewer than three per clutch of eggs.

    My problem now is that I don’t see as many eggs spawning as before. In fact, only two in the four hours since the second weekly challenge popped up with its “Kill 150 Mutant Stewies” task. Coincidence? ^_^

    • I’ve noticed a slowdown in Stewie egg laying also. I think it did coincide with the challenge popup, maybe there’s a little conflict somewhere. They were appearing fairly frequently early Monday but slowed down sometime in the afternoon or evening for me. Yippee.

    That said, the little buggers haven’t dropped a single cigarette since my last comment, which is seriously frustrating. So now I’m just going to Leer them accumulate. I certainly don’t need any more lambswool or nothing, and they’re so freaking cute!

    • Watch closely as I have noticed they will “stack”. Meaning one on top of another. You may see 3 but there may be six for instance. Also double check your road placement screen to ensure you know where all your roads are and one is not hiding (has happened to many before). Check any areas where a Road may have been before but not now due to you moved it and an Egg Pile may be missed.

    • You do not have to remove Roads. That is your choice. It is the game you are playing. Family Guy has ALWAYS had a “Challenge” element to it. Finding Eggs is a “Challenge”. Programming an element in an event to be customized individually to over a million players is not possible. There is no way any game house could do that. So… they code them to Roads. You know where your Roads are, so it is easier for YOU to determine where they can be located. Just keep looking. 🙂
