Hey Addicts. The Heat Is On!!!
Yes, fellow addict investigators there’s a new event in town and it’s full on believe me. So let’s take a look at what Quahog Heat has in store for us.
WARNING: Erisk Estrada is timed, completing Part 4 of the main Questline will activate the 7 day timer, you then only have 7 days to unlock him. Be aware the main Questline is The Color of Dirty Money and as I say Pt 4 will direct you to place him, so if you want to delay the timer don’t complete this part of the Questline until you’re ready.
EVENT ENDS MONDAY MARCH 20th 2017 @ 3PM PACIFIC
As a quick aside, a few weeks ago we asked you what you’d like to see on the site and you said you’d like to see the return of an event home page with links to all the events posts, anyway your wish is our command, and you’ll find it HERE soon. You can also access it from the addicts home page by clicking on the Miami Peter event icon.
First up, the Basics
- Players will need to be on the App Market Version 1.39.0 or higher in order to see the event.
- Players will need to have at LEAST District 3 Unlocked and Al’s complete.
- Players will only see this on the Mobile App Version (iOS, Google, Amazon, Facebook). NOT Windows Stand Alone
- PLAY THE GAME! Items unlock in stages and as you progress, so if you do not see an item it is most likely you have not progressed far enough in the Main Questline to unlock it. Check details below for more specifics on unlock points
- Don’t have a TON of Tasks open in your Task Menu. If you have too many open, no new ones can arrive. (Keep it under 10). If you do not see new Tasks popping up, clear out some incomplete Tasks already on your List to make room for more.

This is where you will complete investigations in order to drop items, release robbers and bust Bertram. You will see 3 areas you can investigate, 1: Teller Windows, 2: Security Office and 3: Vault, although where you can investigate will depend on the characters you have available to you. The characters that can do investigations are Miami Cop Peter, Chopper Cop Quagmire and Lois, so for now if you’re playing freemium I’d keep Lois free if I were you.
To investigate you will need to collect police tapes.

Donuts: (Always) Investigating Bank Rooms OR Fighting Bertram OR Competing Questline Parts
Here is another new battle, it’s similar to what we’ve seen in previous boss battles such as the Yeti, only it’s got a twist.
Basically you need to bust Bertram during an investigation in either of the following Bank Rooms, Security Office or The Vault. If you find him he will appear over at the helipad in the event area. Above him will be a timer and a heart meter.
Now the heart meter can vary between 3 strengths and there is no set rule as to the order, it’s completely random what strength Bertram will appear. The heart meter levels are 1, 2 and 6. To defeat Bertram you need to get his heart meter to 0.
Now youve 24 hours to fully deplete his heart meter, and you do so by attacking him with Miami Cop Peter and/or Chopper Cop Quagmire.
Miami Cop Peter’s ATTACK BERTRAM task has a damage score of 1, so that’s what he will reduce Bertram’s heart meter by. It takes 3 hours to complete the task and do the damage.
Chopper Cop Quagmire’s ATTACK BERTRAM task has a damage score of 2, so that’s what he will reduce Bertram’s heart meter by. It takes 3 hours to complete the task and do the damage.
Now once you get Bertram’s heart meter to zero he will vanish, you will get your rewards and then start investigating rooms to bust him to attack again. He will be a very good source of Medical Supplies.
The rewards per Bertram levels are as follows:
Heart Meter 1 – 8 Medical Supplies & 1 Motorcycle Boots
Heart Meter 2 – 12 Medical Supplies & 1 Motorcycle Boots
Heart Meter 6 – 18 Medical Supplies & 3 Motorcycle Boots
***There may be other Heart Meter Levels, but until we see them in our game I can’t give any info on payouts***
There you have what I can verify of the overall basics of the first phase of the Quahog Heat Event, I’m sorry for the delay but Bunny usually covers these posts, and hasn’t been able to this time with the Android delay. I’ll fill in the areas that show they are still in progress ASAP. But if you have any verupted info please share it in the comments.
What do you think of it so far? Any tips for fellow Players? Any items you are most excited for? Any items you immediately purchased? Let us know.
