Quahog Heat 101: Busting & Battling Tiny Tom

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 TIny Tom and his gang of Punks are invading our towns. So let’s get on top of this problem as we chat more about busting Tiny Tom and defeating him.


For more information on the Event, go HERE


WHEN DOES TINY TOM START APPEARING IN MY GAME? 

In order to be able to start seeing TIny Tom you will need to progress to Phase 4 and start the Main Questline, Mission Possible Pt 1 triggers TIny Tom to show in Bowling Alley rooms as a chance drop. Although it’s not until Pt. 4 of the main Questline you’re directed to fight him, you can start searching for and defeating him before then as he’s a very good source of Bowling Shoes.


WHERE DO I FIND TINY TOM? 

First you must complete a successful investigation in one of two of the Bowling Alley Rooms, The Rental Counter & The Bowling Lanes, he is a chance drop in these. You’ll find more on the Bowling Alley Rooms HERE.

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


WHAT DO I NEED TO DEFEAT TINY TOM?

Defeating Tiny Tom  is similar to the battles in Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3, 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), Tiny Tom during an investigation and have the freemium Miami Cop Peter AND/OR any of the premiums Chopper Cop Quagmire, MacGyver, Moustache P.I. Joe, Pusher Mort, Miami Cop Cleveland, David Hasselhoff. Full details how you attack will appear as you read on.


WHO CAN I USE TO BATTLE MICHAEL PULASKI?

Here are the 7 Characters you can use to Defeat Tiny Tom. All tasks are 2hrs long. You can start the tasks by tapping Tiny Tom 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 Tiny Tom Task. *worth noting is you need scroll along the characters to see all the characters 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

 Pusher Mort – 4 Damage

 Miami Cop Cleveland – 4 Damage


WHAT KIND OF PAYOUT WILL WE GET?

When you tap on Tiny Tom, you can see what kind of Payouts to expect from the Heart Meter Level he 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
2 Heart 4 Bowling Shoes, 8 Fish & 3 T-Shirts
3 Heart 6 Bowling Shoes, 12 Fish & 5 T-Shirts
6 Heart 12 Bowling Shoes, 24 Fish & 5 T-Shirts
9 Heart 18 Bowling Shoes, 36 Fish & 5 T-Shirts

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


HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH TIME I HAVE? 

Tiny Tom 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 2 & 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 TINY TOM?

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 Tiny Tom 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 Tiny Tom 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.

TINY TOM: 2 Heart

You really only need one Character for this Tiny Tom Battle.

Example:

  1. Miami Cop Peter: 2hrs, 1 Damage, so sending him 2 times (4hrs) will give you the 2 damage you need to defeat him

TINY TOM: 3 Heart

You really only need one Character for this Tiny Tom 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

TINY TOM: 6 Hearts

You really only need one Character for this Tiny Tom 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

TINY TOM: 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 Tiny Tom and completely draining his Heart Meter to Zero, you will get the Tiny Tom Rewards listed in the table further up in the post and he will then escape and hide in the Bowling Alley 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, Tiny Tom 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 Bowling Shoe 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 Tiny Tom as quickly as possible.
  2. DO NOT LET TIME RUN OUT! It’s costly.
  3. You can leave a character battling Tiny Tom 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 Tiny Tom at the Bowling Alley. 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 Tiny Tom, 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.
