Guys In Black 101: Boris the Animal

Every randomly time travel and run into a guy that shoots spikes out of his hands? No?! Just me then?

‘You pathetic waste of Boglodite flesh, I would kill you now if I didn’t value my own life! No Human can defeat me!” Let’s hope this isn’t as true in the game. EEEK!

With all this back and forth, alternate time lines, and alien craziness, another odd creature has decided to drop into our silly lil Quahogs for the Guys in Black Event. He even rode in a a pretty cool bike. Boris the Animal is in now our games to Battle. (I still think this version resembles another “bug” after a very “Hard Days Night”)

Just what does this incarnation do for the Event? Let’s take a look.

For more information on the Event, go to the Event Page HERE

 


WHEN DOES BORIS APPEAR? 

During the Main Questline, Invasion of the Quahog Snatchers Pt. 4, you will trigger Boris the Animal’s Information. However, you will have to wait for him to appear before you can battle him.

He will show up over by the Event Area next to the Crashed Area Site. You will see his Bike hanging out until he shows up. Watch your head as he will shoot spikes at you out of his hands.

 


WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BATTLE BORIS? 

Strawberry Cakes. You will need 2 for every Battle you want to start with Boris the Animal. (You can collect them before he shows up, as long as you have triggered them to payout first by triggering Boris Information.)

Strawberry Cakes: Clear Weasels

 


WHAT CHARACTERS CAN BATTLE BORIS? 

You have the option to select UP TO 3 Characters to Battle with Boris. You will just need to make sure they are available, unlocked, and not in the healing process.

The more you add to YOUR TEAM, the stronger Hit Power you will have to Battle and take down Boris.

 

The Worms

 Spacewoman Lois

Edgar the Bug

Frank the Pug

 


WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE CAN EACH CHARACTER DO?

The 3 Characters that can Battle Boris the Animal each have their own Hit Power, Health, and % Chance they will deliver a knockout blow during a Battle and completely take their opponent out.

THE WORMS
Health
: 10
Hit Power: 6
% Chance: 30% Chance

 

SPACEWOMAN LOIS
Health
: 4
Hit Power: 6
% Chance: 20% Chance

 

 

THE WORMS
Health
: 8
Hit Power: 6
% Chance: 30% Chance

 

Frank the Pug
Health
: 8
Hit Power: 6
% Chance: 30% Chance

 

 


WHY CAN’T I SELECT MY CHARACTER? 

There can be a couple of reasons you are unable to SELECT a Character to go to Battle.

BUSY: If the Character you want to use is on a Task elsewhere in the game, you will see the word BUSY and a GET Icon next to them. If they are on a Task, tapping GET will take you to them and ask if you want to finish that Task right away for Clams.

 

NOT UNLOCKED: If you have not Clam Purchased a Character or you are still collecting Materials in the game to Unlock a Character, they will also show up with a Lock Icon and a GET Icon next to them. You will need to continue earning their Required Materials & Unlock them in order to use them for Battle.

 

HEALING: After a Character’s Health is dropped to Zero, they go through a Healing Process (Currently 8hrs/ Superwoman Lois Only 4hrs). While they are Healing, you can’t use them to Battle.

 


HOW LONG WILL CHARACTERS HEAL?

The Current Healing time frame I am seeing on the Characters that dropped to Zero Health after a Battle… is 8hrs. Superwoman Lois though is currently only one that takes just 4hrs to heal.

You will see a HEAL Icon next to them in the Battle Screen along with a timer showing you how much longer you will have to wait before being able to Revive them.

 

Can I Heal them Instantly?
YES. If you want to speed up the Healing Process and want your Character to Battle right now, you can tap on the HEAL Icon and use Revive Potion to give them their full strength back instantly. The Game will ask you if you are sure you want to use this method. 

 

How many Revive Potions do I have? 
There is a Revive Potion Icon above the Characters in the Battle Screen that will show your current available count of Revive Potions left.

 

How do I get Revive Potions?
Currently, these are only available as a Clam Purchase option. You will find them in your Shopping Cart to buy. More options may open up in the future.

x15 Revive Capsules600

x8 Revive Capsules340

x3 Revive Capsules150

 

Or you will see a pop up at end of a battle to HEAL CHARACTERS. Tapping in it will give you the option to pay 72 Clams to HEAL a Character just once. (Lois will cost 56 Clams)

Same if you don’t have any Revive Potions and tap on HEAL in the Battle screen, 72 Clams one time buy Revive option will appear.

 


WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE CAN BORIS DO? 

Boris the Animal will be battling back against the Characters. He also will have a Health, Hit Power, and Chance of dealing Knockout Blows (though it is an unknown %). This is why using more than one Character can be beneficial to take him down. His Health and Hit Power are high.

BORIS THE ANIMAL
Health
: 22
Hit Power: 20
% Chance: UNKNOWN

This means he can attack multiple Characters up to 20 Points.

 


CAN I MISS? 

Yes! Either side of the Battle can miss. Whether it is your Character or the Bad Guy you are battling against. A MISS is a chance that will be mixed in there with everything else.

You will see MISS float up to the Health Bar instead of a number when it happens.

Also this can happen more than once per Battles, so there is a chance that 1 up to all 3 Characters can be missed during an attack.

 


WHAT KIND OF REWARDS CAN I GET FROM BATTLING BORIS? 

The Rewards you will receive will depend on whether you WIN (NEUTRALIZED) the Battle or LOSE (ATTACK OVER) the Battle. So your Rewards will vary.

These are the kind of Rewards I saw in my game. Keep in mind some may only show when that Character is available to earn.

WIN Chance Payout:
 +1 Killing Humans for Dummies (One Time Payout)
+ 20 Alien Slime
+100 MIB Badges

A Winning Battle means that you dropped Boris the Animal’s Health to Zero, even if your Character is wiped out in the process too. You will still get Rewards for the Win.

 

LOSS Chance Payout:
+15 Alien Slime
+5 MIB Badges

A Losing Battle means you were NOT able to get Boris the Animal Edgar to Zero Health before your Character(s) did, so you will still get a payout… just smaller for the loss. You can also keep trying after a loss until you defeat Boris.

 


HOW DO I START A BATTLE?

When you see Boris the Animal in the Event Area… tap on him and his Battle Screen will open up.

Then Select 1, 2, or 3 Characters to Battle Boris. (You can UNSELECT a Character if you change your mind)

You will need TWO Strawberry Cakes for Each Battle. Once you have selected your Character(s) AND if you have at least TWO Strawberry Cakes, then you will see the Button under Boris the Animal’s Image light up green with BATTLE. Tap on it to Start the Battle.

The Animation Screen will then appear and you will watch as your Character(s) attempt attack hits on Boris the Animal on them. You will know how strong each hit was by the RED NUMBER that floats up to their Health Bar after each hit.

Once complete, the Reward Screen will appear showing you if you won or lost the Battle and what Materials you will be Rewarded will be.

NEUTRALIZED! = WIN

ATTACK OVER= LOSS

 


HOW CAN I DEFEAT BORIS? 

With a little bit of strategy, and a little bit of luck, you can take down Boris the Bug. Overall, you need to find a way to Hit Boris and take away all 22 of his Health Points.

Here are some Examples of how a Battle may play out for you…

EXAMPLE #1
The Worms
: Hit Boris -6
Boris: Hit The Worms -10
Battle: Loss
Result: The Worms will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is down 6 Points to 16 remaining. 

EXAMPLE #2
The Worms: Hit Boris -6
Spacewoman Lois: Hit Boris -6
Boris:
Hit The Worms -10
Hit Spacewoman Lois -4
Battle: Loss
Result: The Worms & Spacewoman Lois will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is down 12 Points to 10 remaining.

EXAMPLE #3
The Worms: Hit Boris -6
Edgar the Bug:
Hit Boris -6
Boris:

Hit The Worms -10
Hit Edgar the Bug -8
Battle: Loss
Result:
The Worms & Edgar the Bug will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is down 12 Points to 10 remaining.

Now looking at the Examples, it appears that winning can’t be done. NOT TRUE. I noticed fighting that there is the Element of Chance in there for Knockouts (Taking away every last Health point your opponent has left). So a LOT more points can easily be thrown at Boris the Animal and he can be taken out sooner.

Also after you finish a Battle, Heal, and collect more Strawberry Cakes. You can try again later to take out Boris the Animal. So if he is left at a lower number already (like only 10 remaining) then it will not take too much more to defeat him and win.

EXAMPLE #4 (Boris only has 10 Health Left)
The Worms:
Hit Boris -10 (Knockout)
Boris:
Hit The Worms -10
Battle:
WIN!!!
Result:
The Worms will now have to Heal before he can Battle again. Boris is now defeated and will disappear again to return at a later time. 

EXAMPLE #5 (Boris only has 10 Health Left)
The Worms
: Hit Boris -6
Spacewoman Lois: Hit Boris -4 (All he has left)
Boris:
Hit The Worms -10
Hit Spacewoman Lois -4
Battle: WIN!!!
Result: The Worms & Spacewoman Lois will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is now defeated and will disappear again to return at a later time.

 

If you have all 3 Characters in your game and initiate an Attack on Edgar the Bug, you will have a greater chance of him not completely taking all 3 Characters out… as he only has the ability to attack up to 20 Hit Points.

EXAMPLE #6
Spacewoman Lois:
Hit Boris -6
Edgar the Bug:
Hit Boris -6
The Worms: Hit Boris -6
Boris:
Hit The Worms -10
Hit Spacewoman Lois -4
Hit Edgar the Bug -8
(This will take all of his 22 Hit Points Possible
Battle: Loss
Result:
Spacewoman Lois, Edgar the Bug, & The Worms will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is down 18 Points to 4 remaining. You will now only need one of the Characters healed to Battle him again and knock him out. 

EXAMPLE #7
Frank the Pug:
Hit Boris -6
Edgar the Bug:
Hit Boris -6
The Worms: Hit Boris -6
Boris:
Hit The Worms -10
Hit Frank the Pug -4
Hit Edgar the Bug -8
(This will take all of his 22 Hit Points Possible
Battle: Loss
Result:
Spacewoman Lois & Edgar the Bug will now have to Heal before they can Battle again. Boris is down 18 Points to 4 remaining. Due to Frank the Pug still has Health left, he can go right back to Battle Boris and potentially take him out. 

 

Again, these are just probabilities. There is so many possibilities of Knockouts & Misses by either side that many outcomes are possible and will vary by Player and by Battle.

 


HOW DO I KNOW HOW MUCH HEALTH BORIS HAS LEFT? 

You can either tap on him in the Event Area, or just look above his head. He does show a Heart Health Counter right above him as he is hanging out in the Event Area by his Motorcycle.

This can help you to know some possible combinations of Character(s) attacks that you can set up to try and defeat him fully.

 


WHEN WILL BORIS THE ANIMAL BE BACK TO BATTLE AGAIN? 

Right now there is not a time frame for Boris the Animal to return after he has been defeated in Battle. In my game, it is within 24hrs after a defeat I am seeing his return. Just not a pinpoint exact time I can offer.

 


QUICK RECAP

  • Unlock Character(s)
  • Collect at least 2 Strawberry Cakes
  • Wait for Boris the Animal to appear
  • Select Character(s) to Battle Boris the Animal
  • Battle Boris the Animal
  • Collect Rewards
  • Let Character(s) Heal
  • Repeat if necessary

There you have the basics of Battling Boris the Animal for the Guys in Black Event.

Have you seen Boris yet? If so, have you tried to Battle him yet? What do you think of the Battles? Tips for fellow Players? Let us know.

  1. Realized just today, we could use more than one character to battle some of these critters! I mean I’ve been doing fine, but Uhm, could have had more badges and not be in the 900’s right now. So I was using 2 cupcakes and 1 character each time. So of course it was taking me all day to defeat him once. Going to beat my head against the wall for a bit.

  7. A little more info – restarted phone, cleared cache again, boosted memory, re-opened game, I got credit for hitting Boris to 16/22, so it worked, just locked up, might have been my device…I think we only need (at this point) to defeat Boris once for Edgar, so might not be an issue…

    • Sounds like a device issue, hopefully won’t happen again. And yes only need defeat Biris once to get what’s needed for Edgar.

  8. Just had the first glitch of this event – went to attack Boris with Worms…they came up, but he never did…after a while, the phone just locked up…HTC One 10, Android, latest software as I’m good about updating…clean phone before I play each time with All-In-One Toolbox…

  9. In my game, Lois’ heal time is 4 hours instead of eight. I hope Edgar the bug also has a shorter healing time.
