Quahog Heat 101: Busting & Battling Michael Pulaski

Who’s afraid of losing all their clams in the bank? Me that’s who!!!

But currently there’s a big chance of that as Michael Pulaski and his gang of Party Guys are invading our towns. So let’s get on top of this problem as we chat more about busting Michael Pulaski and defeating him.


For more information on the Event, go HERE


WHEN DOES MICHAEL PULASKI START APPEARING IN MY GAME? 

In order to be able to start seeing Michael Pulaski you will need to progress to Phase 3 and start the Main Questline, Risque Business Pt 1 triggers Michael Pulaski to show in Yacht Club rooms as a chance drop. Although it’s not until Pt. 7 of the main Questline you’re directed to find him, you can start searching for and defeating him before then as he’s a very good source of Pants.


WHERE DO I FIND MICHAEL PULASKI? 

First you must complete a successful investigation in two of the Yacht Club Rooms, The Bar & The Prom Patio, he is a chance drop in there. You’ll find more on the Yacht Club Rooms HERE.

If you’re successful Michael Pulaski will appear on the helipad of the event area, waiting for you to attack.


WHAT DO I NEED TO MICHAEL PULASKI?

Defeating Michael Pulaski is similar to the battles in Phase 1 and Phase 2, as again we see a boss with a random mix of heart levels, but at lower levels you should be fine to defeat him even if you’re playing freemium.  Basically all you need is to have bust, (found), Michael Pulaski during an investigation and have the freemium Miami Cop Peter AND/OR any of the premiums Chopper Cop Quagmire, MacGyver, Moustache P.I. Joe, David Hasselhoff. Full details how you attack will appear as you read on.


WHO CAN I USE TO BATTLE MICHAEL PULASKI?

Here are the 5 Characters you can use to Defeat Michael Pulaski. All tasks are 2hrs long. You can start the tasks by tapping Michael Pulaski to trigger the Pop Up, then “ATTACK” under the Character/s you want to send OR just go to the Character/s walking in the game and assign them on the Attack Michael Pulaski Task. *worth noting is you need scroll along the characters to see Miami Cop Peter & Chopper Cop Quagmire, as only 3 fit on the screen at a time*

Miami Cop Peter – 1 Damage.

Chopper Cop Quagmire – 2 Damage.

MacGyver MacGyver – 2 Damage

Moustache Joe Moustache P.I. Joe – 3 Damage

 David Hasselhoff – 3 Damage


WHAT KIND OF PAYOUT WILL WE GET?

When you tap on Michael Pulaski, you can see what kind of Payouts to expect from the Heart Meter Level she is. The level of Heart Meter you get is completely random. Here are the Payouts.

***There may be other Heart Meter Levels, but until we see them in our game I can’t give any info on payouts***

HEart meter levels and rewards  image

Heart Meter Level Reward
3 Heart 13 Pants
6 Heart 26 Pants
9 Heart 38 Pants

Also note for each attack round where you complete the 2hr task to inflict damage towards fully defeating him you will be awarded 1 Pant. You’ll also get some Donuts for attacks and defeats.


HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH TIME I HAVE? 

Michael Pulaski has a timer with twenty-four hours on it. You will only have that time to fully deplete his Hearts and take him down. At 3  Hearts this will be easy even freemium. At 6 you’re still able to do it freemium but at 9 you’re going have to lose a little sleep, but again it is achievable. If you are wondering how much time you have left, you can look right above him in the helipad.

Or you can tap on him and see it in the middle of the Pop Up. This will be noted by “TIME LEFT“.


HOW DO I KNOW HOW MANY HEARTS HE HAS LEFT? 

Again, just look at the timer above his head. You will see a number in the Heart, and you will also see the Meter depleting blue bars as you cause him Damage with each attack.


HOW DO I DEFEAT MICHAEL PULASKI?

As noted, in order to be able to get all these cool extra Payouts, your mission is to COMPLETELY drain the Heart Meter on whatever heart meter level Michael Pulaski you get to Zero within the TWENTY FOUR HOURS you are being timed on. So you will have to watch your game carefully for 9 Heart Michael Pulaski and as soon as one attack is done, start another immediately to make full use of all the time you have. Here are some ideas of freemium strategies. But if you’ve premium characters you’ll use them too. I’m not going give premium strategies as there’s too many and you are smart enough to work out your best combo with the players at your disposable.

MICHAEL PULASKI: 3 Heart

You really only need one Character for this Michael Pulaski Battle.

Example:

  1. Miami Cop Peter: 2hrs, 1 Damage, so sending him 3 times (6hrs) will give you the 3 damage you need to defeat him

Michael Pulaski: 6 Hearts

You really only need one Character for this Michael Pulaski Battle.

Example:

  1. Miami Cop Peter: 2hrs, 1 Damage, so sending him 6 times (12hrs) will give you the 6 damage you need to defeat him

Michael Pulaski: 9 Hearts

To be honest this one will be best with at least 2 Characters but with careful timing is achievable with just one, even the freemium option of Miami Cop Peter.

Example:

  1. Miami Cop Peter: 2hrs, 1 Damage, so sending him 9 times (18hrs) will give you the 9 damage you need to defeat him – and on the upside remember you will get 1 Pants for each attack as well as the reward for defeating him so you’ll get a good payout for your effort.

As you can see he is defeatable at every heart meter level we’ve seen even with just Miami Cop Peter but at the higher levels it’s going to take you setting timers and losing a little sleep, which I don’t personally encourage or advise to be honest.


WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I DEFEAT HIM?

If you are successful in attacking Michael Pulaski and completely draining his Heart Meter to Zero, you will get the Michael Pulaski Rewards listed in the table further up in the post and he will then escape and hide in the Yacht Club again. You need to do a new investigation to bust him to battle him again. And as I said earlier what heart meter level he comes back at is random.


WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T DEFEAT HIM?

If you can’t get the Heart Meter to Zero within the 24hrs, Michael Pulaski will escape back to the bank and you will NOT get any Payout for losing other than the task payout on the Character/s which is 1 Pant for each 2hr attack completed. You need to do a new investigation to bust him to battle him again. And as I said earlier what heart meter level he comes back at is random.


OVERALL TIPS/HINTS

  1. Get attacking Michael Pulaski as quickly as possible.
  2. DO NOT LET TIME RUN OUT! It’s costly.
  3. You can leave a character battling Michael Pulaski even though he has no cool down as he disappears as soon as you beat hm. This way you can leave the Character battling and NOT select their check mark while you try to find another Michael Pulaski at the Bank. Then you don’t have to wait a full 2hrs to attack him, just whatever time is left on the Character you left battling. However with rooms to investigate you may not think this worthwhile at this stage in the event. I personally haven’t used this tactic in this event.

There you have it… a helpful post of how to defeat Michael Pulaski, the payouts, and some helpful hints to keep your progressing through the Battles.

What do you think of it all? Was this helpful? Got any other tips you would like to share with the other players? How are your Battles coming along? Let us know.

  1. Hi fellow addicts. Maybe someone can help me with Pulaski. I’ve found him after an investigation, but when I tap on the helicopter it comes up with ‘You must find CONSUELA first , etc’, yet it should be Pulaski.
    *sigh*.
    Thanks in advance if anyone can help.

  2. I’m the same – I’ve spent the last few days ignoring the other rooms and just sending Bruce (I don’t have this Bonnie costume) time and time again. Poor Bruce! Pulaski just refuses to show his face, meaning I can’t get past Risqué Business 7.
    This has effectively ended this event for me. 😦

    • Update:
      Because Bruce was only dropping doughnuts, I couldn’t get badges enough to get towels or life rings for Pamela Anderson. So, I spent a godzillion clams for her. Sent her to the The Bar and after 2 searches, found him.
      Bruce searched 763 times : nothing.
      Pam searched twice : results.
      Seems Pulaski responds more to endowed women than campy men. 🙂

  3. Same as me, but just need whistles…
    He just will not drop… how I will get to defeat him three times to get to next week I don’t know!

  4. I can’t for the life of me get this boss to drop…. I’ve sent workout Bruce like 10 times and I got card sharks until my town was too full of them and now I just get crappy boxes of donuts. Maybe Pam will have better luck….of course I still need the pool for her last drops
