Weekly Challenge #3 and Biker Brian!

Hey all,

A bit late to the game on this one, sorry. Doctor’s again.

Anywho, TinyCo dropped a few new things into our silly lil Quahogs. The First being are 3rd addition of the Weekly Challenge for the Boomsday Event. The Second a New Character Costume for Brian, Biker Brian,  to help with some of the drops for the game.

Biker Brian

Let’s take a look at both below. 


BIKER BRIAN

Biker Brian

The New Costume for Brian is now live in our games.

Biker Brian: 260 Clams. Fully Tasked, Comes with a Questline

Biker Brian is set to help Neil, Commander Jesus, and Ollie for those still working on them. As for Neil (Acne Cream) and Commander Jesus (Holy Hand Grenade), I already have them so I am still waiting to verify the drops for them. Feel free to share what you see in your game for them if you do.

Ollie’s Propeller Hats: 8hrs Task Chance drop. (Marked as chance but I got the Hats everytime)

 


3 DAY TIMED CHALLENGE- WEEK 3

Bad Roaches

Mutant Musings Part 3
Cleveland starts

Check Out the Prize: Tapping on “GO” takes you to the Event Menu where you can see the Newest Prize, a Bike. 
Clear 10 Pairs of Roaches in 3 Days: Each one will Require 2 Roach Zappers each, so try to get a start on collecting Lightbulbs and making them as soon as possible. I usually get them spawned in groups of 3 roughly every 4-6hrs.  

Completed Task Rewards: *** As I have to wait on spawns too, I will update this when I am complete. Feel free to share when you get yours.***

 

Roach Zapper: Requires 1 Lightbulb & 1hr 30mins to create

Lightbulb: Armageddon Stan Look Sharp OR Apocalypse Peter Drive on the Wrong Side of the Road OR Bonnie Build a Pillow Fort OR The Diner at the End of the Apocalypse OR Electric Boogie OR Mutant Meg Make Mutant Friends Leave a Slime Trail

 


There you have it, two new aspects of the Boomsday Event hitting our game.

Are you trying out these Challenges? Got the first 2 so far? How are you doing on the 3rd? Pick up Biker Brian? Let us know.

  1. Am I doing something wrong here with the roaches? There have been multiple times where I used the zapper, had both touches inside the purple space and they didn’t die. Nowhere does it say it takes multiple zaps to kill them either.

  2. Had to buy helmets. 32 with Stan and Neil rarely dropping made it look like I would never get Peter. I caved in to move the game along. Fuel refinery WILL NOT DROP. BS! Again! Wasted 80 clams to see if it was broke. It’s broke! Still nothing. C’mon.

    • You just answered your question. You are still in Phase 2. Mutant Musing triggers while in the phase the items needed for it are… Phase 3 aka Boom and Doom

  4. Heads up on the challenge. It is mathematically impossible to do without spending Clams if you only have Apoc Stan and the Diner. Even if you somehow start the Challenge already having two Lightbulbs, you still end up at best an hour and a half short on that tenth kill, since you can only make six Zappers a day (each one with an hour and a half build time) and have to use two for each kill. If you have Apoc Peter as well, it’s possible, or if you manage to unlock Imp Lois and free Bonnie from her Motorcycle Mutant tormentors it’s possible.

    But if you find the challenge unlocked and only have Stan and the Diner to make Lightbulbs, either start forking over Clams or give up on it, unless you think you can unlock Imp Lois in time (ideally before the last day). If you can’t, don’t beat yourself up trying to. Effort is better spent in unlocking Apoc Peter, which is hard enough already, but basically interminable if Stan is on Lightbulb duty. Lois will more or less take care of herself once you get the buildings.

  5. When the quest to get the war roller chicks popped up, I was sure that there was no timer associated with it. There was definitely no timer to the quest for the previous weeks freaking hard prize (the quest, not the actual prize in the stockpile tanker which did have a timer.) Now when I entered the game there is a timer counting down on the quest. I NEVER entered the stockpile tanker, so does anyone know if this is just something new tinyco did for the quest only, or is the timer in the stockpile tanker also counting down now. I don’t want to enter the trailer to check and end up activating that timer also.

  6. Bunny, I am sooo confused! I have been getting light bulbs and don’t know what to do with them. There are no roaches in sight and I don’t have a zapper, don’t even know what it looks like! And now on top of that, my light bulbs disappeared! I had 10 collected and they’re just gone.
    I’m also really annoyed by the fact that I have been trying and trying to get the acne cream and it is taking forever! I’ve spent a lot on this challenge and my purse is empty? Won’t you please help???
    Don’t mean to complain, I LOVE this game!

  7. Bunny – newbie question, so I apologize in advance. Which unlocked characters will continue in the game? I’m guessing at least Ollie and Neil, but what about CJ and Alien? I remember reading something you wrote about Alien being back in the game which indicated to me he went away after the event in which he was introduced. Thanks!

    • ANY Character you completely unlock and have roaming your town when the Event ends… stays in your game. Is that what you are asking?

      Or do you mean, “Do Characters come back if you missed them the first time?” If that is the case, yes and no. It all depends on copyrights, what TinyCo feels would work with current Event, what TinyCo CAN bring back, if it is a popular enough Character to warrant a return, etc. In short, Player response can make a difference. This is first time the Smith’s have been seen again since their Event.

  8. The pop-up ad for Biker Brian mentioned him getting light bulbs. I probably would not have bought him if I had known he did not. I’ve sent in-game support a note about that being misleading. Just thought I’d mention it in case someone else gets confused by that.

    Like

    • This is the EXACT wording of the pop up (I screenshot everything just in case of stuff like this)….

      “Biker Brian knows a mutant who knows a mutant who can help you get your fix of Lightbulbs. You’ll need them to power the Zapper and clear the Bad Roaches from Quahog!”

      In short, it never said Biker Brian would drop them. Just a play on words similar to “I know a guy who knows a guy that can get that stuff you want” or “I know a guy that knows a guy that found stuff that fell off a truck”.

      The ONLY items he lists and advertises helping with are the Acne Cream, Propeller Hats, and Holy Hand Grenades. Sorry. 🙂

  12. I was clever/lucky for this challenge. I figured this one would involve the roaches so I had 6 zappers saved up. That knocked out 3 of them off the bat. I also had another 7 lights, so that made 3 more. Peter, Stan, Meg, the diner, and Bonnie provided enough chances to get more lights in.

    Long story short, I had all 10 roaches done in a little over a day. It’s not as tough as it sounds. Just have Lois ready to rescue Bonnie, and keep those lights coming in.

    If you’re stuck on those danged helmets for Peter though I know this all sort of piles up. I’d not sweat the challenge and just keep working on Peter.

  14. I purchased Biker Brian as soon as he appeared because the advertisement/pop up said he helped collect light bulbs for roaches. I contacted tinyco in game asking them about it since he did not show an action to drop light bulbs and they responded quickly saying it was an error and they credited me 50 light bulbs! If you did purchase Biker Brian under the assumption he dropped light bulbs tinyco may be able to help you as well.

        • That was nice of them. Just for future reference here is where I think Player’s got tripped up making that assumption. There was a play on words with his pop up (much like there is always a lil joke or play on words with Charcter pop ups)…

          “Biker Brian knows a mutant who knows a mutant who can help you get your fix of Lightbulbs. You’ll need them to power the Zapper and clear the Bad Roaches from Quahog!”

          It did not say Biker Brian dropped them, but that he “knows a mutant who knows a mutant who can help…” Only a play on words. The 3 actual items he was tagged with in both the pop up and in the Menu only were Acne Cream, Holy Hand Grenades, and Propeller Hats. 🙂

  15. Hi there Bunny, i noticed we got the smiths from Brians special presents… do you know when they will do the Stewie presents? Im guessing soon if there is only 8days left (i know this will cost clams also). But im excited to see what we get, im guessing from previous events, that the Stewie ones will drop clams and some of the items we need to collect twinklies. (again same thing that happened in previous events). 🙂

  17. I had a bunch of light bulbs saved before I even triggered phase 3 so I was able to get halfway through the challenge shortly after triggering it. Should be able to finish.

    Side question bunny. Is there anyway to convince them to add more ways to get motorcycle helmets for apocalypse Peter? 32 rare items for someone with only 2 people to drop them (who are needed for 2 other tasks themselves) is kind of insane. I’ve got nowhere near enough for him (which is all I need) but I’m close to getting Lois already and Ollie. Seems impractical that a phase one costume won’t be obtainable until the event is almost over, if at all. I messaged them but they once again deleted my convo instead of replying.

  18. I love the new outfit for Brian, and as I had enough clams I just had to get him, even though I already had Neil, Commander Jesus, and Ollie unlocked, I’m glad I got him. As for the challenge, I only need to clear 3 more Roaches with 2 days left, and I have 6 Roach Zappers being made now, so I’ll definitely have this challenge beaten by the end of the day.

    I can’t seem to get rid of the cockroaches. I’m using the zapper but all they do is raise their hands, freak out and then walk away. In your description it says you need 2 but in the game allows you to do it when you have one in stock.

    • You have to hit them twice. Their Heart Level (top right corner in pop up when you tap them) starts at 100. The first hit subtracts 50, the second the final 50 to kill them. So yes, you CAN hit them once… but it won’t kill them. Tap on the Roaches to see which one you hit already and are down to 50, then zap them again to kill. Make sense?

  20. Will pass on Brian by the time he showed up I already had Cmdr Jesus, Neil and the hats for Ollie. The challenge will be a close one as I get 3 light bulbs every 8 hours. It means delaying putting Stan on task for those *!# helmets needed for apocalypse Pete.

  21. I still don’t apocalypse peter or lois. Is anyone else having trouble with Neil and stans stingy drops? I did however start bonnie collecting light bulbs a lot before she could get chased, so this one might be feasible for me. Still waiting on starting the Ollie timer since I don’t have all the buildings required for his drops yet. When should I start the timer?

  24. 10 pair in three days… Meaning 20 ligthbulbs. With Stan being desperately needed for the helmets for Peter, and Bonnie chased by the motorcycle and no Lois yet to free her, only way to get ligthbulbs is the Diner building. Pay out 1 every 8 hour. Even if we set the alarm after it and make sure to grab it immidiately, max payout is 3 per day, meaning 9 in 3 days, less than half of what is needed for the challenge! As many are stuck due to the helmets, this appear weird to me.
    I have managed the challenges in the other weeks, but no way I can make this. Simple math tells me it is impossible.
    And just to add to it, now my Tan Line quest wants Stan. Have to skip that as well as I need help him on helmets. I am already standing still due to those helmets.

  25. This weekly challenge is mathematically impossible for me and probably many without clam rushing or spending lots of clams. Bonnie has been tied up being chased by a guy on a motorcycle since the start of phase 3 so no bug zappers from her. Imperator Lois is needed to free her but getting her requires earning lots of twinkies to get the necessary buildings and now that most trades require gas cans I’ve stalled in twinkie progression. I’ve still got less than half the needed helmets for Apocalypse Peter. I’ve got Stan and the diner as the only sources of bug zappers meaning I can kill 1 roach every 8 hrs which means a max of 9 in 3 days, not the required 10.

    • Remember, I noted this as Event started, Challenges usually trigger for Premium Players due to some point there WILL be a chance that Clams will be required to pass them. They are completely optional, not a requirement. Your choice to take them on or pass on them. 🙂

  28. I already have all those characters unlocked, so the items that Brian’s new skin drops are of no use to me.
    I actually caught a glimpse of this new Brian skin in my game a few days ago but then it disappeared and I was wondering how to get it? Now that I see it is for clams, I would rather save them for something else.
    Today, I also finally unlocked the Apocalypse Peter skin.. After sending Neil / Stan on seemingly endless collection runs. He was the last character / skin I needed to unlock so far. I finished the skin for Lois and unlocked Ollie a day or two ago. Now I can finally move on with the questline.. I just hope that I am not going to be too far behind going into the next phase because of “helmets”.

  29. I feel lucky to have had no problem completing the first two challenges. But this one I can’t see happening. I get one from the building drop, and one from Stan. Bonnie is tied up being chased and I’m not done Lois yet. I’m a diligent (mostly freemium) player and have zapped one so far, with about 58/72 hours remaining. Ah well.

    • Same here but I have Bonnie doing the task non atop because Stan is still earning those silly helmets for the Peter costume. No chance in hell to get ten pairs of roaches killed.

      Like

    • Yeah, it just isn’t possible with just Stan and building. I had 2 bug zapper when challenge dropped, so I needed to get 18 more or 9 pair of lightbulbs at 8 hours per pair=72 hours. However, the last pair is going to take 3 hours to be convert to bug zappers (the other 8 pairs can be created within the time frame). So 75 hours in a 72 hour challenge. I guess I can hope Lois gets unlocked soon to allow both her and Bonnie to start giving lightbulbs.

      Like

    • I’m in agreement. This third challenge was clearly not achievable for a freemium player. Mathematically, a player would need to have 3 methods of earning Light Bulbs in order to earn the 20 required to zap 10 pairs of roaches. For freemium players, the most likely third method would have been Apocalypse Peter.

      • This is why I say time and again… Challenges are for PREMIUM Players. There will always be a chance Clams will be needed for them. It is why TinyCo started releasing them to only those that spend Clams. Me personally, much like many of the “FREAKIN HARD” items in the Crafting Areas, most turn out to be just decorations and may not be worth the time and Clams spent in the long run.
