5/4 UPDATE: It looks like TinyCo have removed Clubber Lang’s task to Clear Middleweight boxers, trying to get verification of what’s happening, but my advice if you bought him for this reason is please message TinyCo. Also note they’ve sorted Clubber Lang’s Vodka drop, he now drops 2 Vodkas always!!!
So you think you’re as rich at Carter Pewterschmidt? Own a fancy house like Buzz Killington? You sure gotta lot of clams there, whatcha gonna do with them?

Now hold on there a minute. Are you SURE you want that? With all these cool Rocky Times in Quahog limited time event items in the game, it is very easy to get carried away. Before you know it, Clamshell Shock! All gone!

MATH OF IT
***It looks like TinyCo have removed Clubber Lang’s task to Clear Middleweight boxers, and have sorted his vodka drop, so you’ll get 2x Vodka always now***
I wanted to give you an overall idea of how he COULD benefit your game play. And it’s simple you can use Clubber Lang on one of his two useful tasks, either the 4hr task to drop vodka or the 6hr task to clear Middleweight Boxers. So you’ll need to decide which area you want to use him on.
You can have him on his 4hr task Get Punch Drunk which will always drops 2 Vokdas. So you could get up to 12 vodkas every 24hrs doing this, and these vodkas will help you attack the Ivan Drago boss at the various levels available. These attacks are the only way to get Russian Vitamns, need to unlock the Ivan Drago character.
Or You can have him on his 6hr task Go Toe To Toe With Middleweight Boxers which will clear Middleweight Boxers, and get you a chance of 1x Milk dropping. So you could get 4 chances of a Milk drop every 24hrs doing this. Milk is needed to Fight at the Quahog City Music Hall, you need to do this in order to get the Headgear needed for buying buildings from Adrian’s Pet Store in this phase. Or You can mix and match the abive tasks, using him to get you drops of both Milk and Vodka.
So his usefulness is obvious from the above, but is he essential, well technically no, as Boxer Peter can fight the Middleweight Boxers and there will be 2 buildings that drop vodka, but these are the final 2 items to buy in this Phase of Adrian’s Pet Store, so they aren’t going to be easy to get. So yes there are other ways to get the drops but you’re going to go a lot slower than you would if you buy him. But hey there’s nothing wrong with that, especially if you’re not a fan of Rocky.
Personally, I passed on him on him as I’m not a big fan of Rocky, got no interest in boxing or boxers, and finally I decided when this event started it would be a freemium event for me, unless Boxer Stewie was available to buy outright. But since Boxer Stewie is in a mystery box I’m sticking to my freemium plan. And yes I know this Phase will be a slow grind due to this, I’ve had Peter clear 2 Middleweight Boxers with 0 Milk drops, so I’m not expecting to get anywhere fast this phase. I’ll grind away and see where I end up. But if you’re a big fan of Rocky, this is probably a good investment, you’ll get a full character who will help you greatly in getting a 2nd character, Ivan Drago. So Addicts the decision is yours! Will you pull no punches and throw 270 clams in the ring, or have you thrown in the towel on premiums in this event like I have?
With it being part of a Limited Time Event, just make sure you make up your mind as once the event is over it is most likely they will be gone. In the end it’s your call. What you buy and what you don’t buy is your own personal choice we can only guide you on the facts and let you know what we did and what we think. But don’t purchase it until YOU are sure. ALL SALES ARE FINAL!
