Best Of 2017 Week 2 Overview!!!

Welcome to Russia, where the spies are bots and the AK-47 is your currency of choice…. or perhaps you’d rather pass and just reach for the vodka and join me in Quahog instead where we’re getting another peek behind the iron curtain for the latest event.

RUSSIAN SPY BOTS

You will trigger them and learn about them at Part 3 of the main Questline Cold War. You will find them wandering your sidewalks and you will need to use a combination of 1 Cybersecurity software and a character, Ninja Stewie or Mrs Giant Chicken, to clear them.

Basically you want to tap on any Russian Spy Bot that’s wandering around to bring up the screen showing you need a Cybersecurity Software and character to clear them, it will also show you the rewards.

Simply select the character you have available to perform the task from the list on the left, your choice is between Ninja Stewie or Mrs Giant Chicken, you only need 1 of them. And you can only select them if they aren’t busy on another task, so remember to use them for this between other tasks. Once you’ve selected your character just tap CLEAR and you’re selected character will clear the Russian Spy Bot, below you can see I used Mrs Giant Chicken.

  1. Ugh. Now I know why I only play during Christmas! Way too much of a grind utilizing certain characters instead of a wider variety. Waiting to move on to week 3 since none of these costumes/characters really matter to me. Well maybe Vlad, since Trump really didn’t want to be peeezie o da steezie and Melania cried so hard the night they won. Leaving one question… if Trump didn’t want to win, why would he “collude” with Vlad? Maybe the unlock will tell the troof? I’m still hoping the game will disclose her uranium deal with the Russians! Hope this is on a secure private/illegal server in NY! Lol

  3. Tip: If your Mrs Giant Chicken is happily dropping ‘Fake News’ (need 18 to unlock Putin – I currently have 6 after 2 days) then do not buy Wacky Leaks HQ (Main Questline Part 4) before using sicles to buy Vladdy’s Puppeteer and Putin’s Jet – this will increase your chances of getting Putin (You may not even need Wacky Leaks HQ and you could use a few clams at the end to top up Fake News if you’re short of time). There doesn’t seem to be any advantage in completing the main quest line (unless anyone knows different).

  5. Ugh this even is looking worse and worse. 18 of one item and 13 for an 8 hour item. It looks like I pretty much have to choose between fake news or puppets. And that is only if I can get the airplane. I feel bad for anyone starting during this event as it probably sent them running away in terror.

    • Exactly same as me. Almost zero chance of getting Putin unless rifle drops increase to 4 instead of 2, reduced requirements for Tier 1 characters. But it’s a wish list. And I just realized all Tier 1 costumes were premium during the event back then.

      • .. i think Sumo Chris was freemium cuz i just found out about him and removed him from Tan Lines .. sent him to do 4 – hr tasks .. still a bad ratio though .. and the Common Drops aren’t that common at all … and Mrs Chicken uncommon drops are horrible …

Wonder if there is any chance Tinyco can fix this cuz if I have to complete all 7 questlines I may just have to give up on this event to get them all out of the way. Man, I also have a bunch of new quest lines from all the new Best of 2018 characters and costumes and Mystery Box 1!!!!

  17. Is someone else also facing glitches. I already collected dojo Peter, samurai quagmire, mr. Myagi and so on and finished their quests already. But now I have to redo all the quests, which is anoying since I need Peter, quagmire and lois for this week. Which will probably very hard for me, since I do not have the premium characters.

  18. Hopefully this week will be easy, I had every character already except for Stewie.
    I wish there was a faster way to collect stars for the Week 1 mystery box in week 2. I guess I should have waited another day to advance to week 2 in order to stockpile.

  19. I have so many expletives to throw at this event. I still have to collect 156 stars to unlock the three remaining wrestling characters I didn’t unlock the first time around, before I start on the 220 needed for Mrs Giant Chicken who I don’t even have the second building for. Haven’t even touched the first mystery box. And the Salmon aren’t an “Always” drop. I want to throw my iPad across the room.

    Like

    • I was lucky to have a few characters to get started on week 1. I can see how this would be almost next to impossible to finish if you had to buy all the characters. I also had a lot of trouble with the salmon drops, not very reliable. Sorry about your troubles, hope it turns around for you!

  20. I know we’re less than a day into this week, but I have to admit being less than enthusiastic about the chances for this one, and I got *all* the freemium stuff from the Kung Pao Quahog event. Just not enough resources dropped from the soldiers, especially with the time the not-guaranteed CDs take to drop. At 5 collection times per day for the Tier 1 character costumes, it would take 6 days of always dropping for each to pay for itself (though you might still need to in order to get enough sickles), compared to 3 days for the Tier 1 characters in week 1.

    At least I don’t care about anything in the mystery box this time, because that’s the thing I’m least likely to have enough AKs for.

    • Agreed. I was so upset I didn’t get him and currently have enough clams to do so. I still reference Sho’nuff, but no one ever knows what I’m talking about lol.
