These are the little baddies in this event and are quite simple to deal with, it’s just more of the tap, aim and fire we’ve seen in previous events. Before you can clear them you’ll need to get some Tennis Rackets, you’ll get them here:

 Tennis Racket (Common) –  Peter Join A Country Club, Chris Go To Gym Club, Bonnie Play Tennis, My Dear Watson Elementary School (always)

Once you have a Tennis Racket you will find Bats flying around your sidewalks.

Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.

Then move the Tennis Racket until the green target circle is on a swarm of Bats, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to clear the Bats.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 8 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Bats are as follows:

Per Swarm of Bats Cleared
3 Evidence (Always)
1 Deerstalker Hat (Chance)
1 Kilt (Chance)


You will trigger them and learn about them at Part 1 of the main Questline Gone Guy.  You will find them wandering your sidewalks and you will need to use a Character task to clear them.

Tap on a Chimney Sweep wandering around to bring up the Payout and Character needed, you need either Stewie Holmes or Queen Victoria Chris.

Simply tap on SELECT to choose the Character. Please note you can also put the Characters on the tasks directly from their profiles.

Characters Used:
Stewie Holmes
Queen Victoria Chris

Task Time: 6hrs.

Chance Payout:
12 Evidence (Always)
2 Haggis (Chance)

Think of this as a “CHECK LIST” of items that will help you gather resources for the Event.

You can get to the current Case Files Screen by tapping on the Icon in the lower right corner of the game screen.

Once you complete a Special Order you will see CLAIM appear  above the icon.

You must  be mindful of this and tap on the “CLAIM” button next to an order to gain your reward. As I say be vigilant on collecting rewards in order you trigger the subsequent task.

To go quickly to location of a Case File you need to complete, tap on the “GO” icon next to it.

Here is the list of what I currently see in my game for this Weeks Special Orders (as you clear one or progress through Main Questline, another will appear)…

The Curse Of The Rocketeer

The Case Of The Bats In The Belfry

The Case Of The Daddy Issues

The Case Of The Missing Murderer

The Case Of The Tramp Scamps

The Case Of The Talk Of The Town

WEEKLY PRIZE: If you complete 26 of the first weeks Special Orders you will unlock the Weekly Prize. This weeks prize is the Haunted House.

There you have the overall basics to get you started through the first Week of the New Event. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. Had to do a delete and install, but working now thanks Tiger


  2. Every time I attack swarm on bats my game freezes


  3. Payouts from the bats are awful. I’m averaging 1 hat per four captures. Will take forever to get the ones needed for Stewie’s costume.
