Let’s Party Like It’s 1999!!!
The time travelling TV is still active and ready to take us on another trip down memory lane. Yes it’s time to tackle those decadent Backup Dancers in Week 5 of A Look In The Rear.
Why Am I Repeating What’s In The Overview Post?
Basically as I’m already seeing comments from players who think the Da Funk isn’t clearing Backup Dancers, whilst the Glitter is. Why is this, well it’s because the Glitter is stronger, Glitter clears Backup Dancers with 1 hit, but Da Funk isn’t as strong so you need to hit them with this twice.
Simply the Backup Dancer has 4 Heart Points, Da Funk reduces this by only 2 Heart Points, (so you need to use 2 to take his 4 Heart Points to 0), whereas Glitter reduces this by 4 Heart Points, taking him straight to 0 Heart Points. The difficulty is making sure you hit the same one twice with Da Funks.
As I say as when you hit him with Da Funk his health will only reduce from 4 to 2 Heart points, so you then need hit him again with another Da Funk. But finding the same one isn’t easy the way they dart around, took me nearly 10 minutes of tapping them and checking their Heart points at the top of their attack screen to find the one I’d reduced to 2 Heart Points. I’ve asked TinyCo to add an indicator to show which one you’ve hit before but not sure if they’ll do so as yet.
But pay attention to the Heart Points at the top of the attack screen.
And remember only use Glitter hitting Backup Dancers with 4 Heart Points. Don’t use glitter on ones you’ve already hit with Da Funk!!!
Below is just a repeat of th information from the Overview post….
You will be able to start seeing Backup Dancers in your 1990’s Quahog when you trigger Pt. 2 of the main Questline.
Like Backup Dancers you will find them wandering your 1990’s Quahog Playspace, so look there and you will find them. Be aware if you place a Sidewalk that’s where they will gather. and you will find them. I’ve only had 8 max available at any one time, and they seemed to be released in my game every 4 hours.
These are the other baddies in this week of the 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 Glitter or Da Funk, you’ll get them here:
Glitter (Always) – Get from Crafting in the Clam Garden
Da Funk (Always) – Get from Crafting in the Clam Garden
Once you have a Glitter or Da Funk you will find Backup Dancers wandering on your 1990’s sidewalks.
Simply tap one of them to bring up the targeting screen.
Now you’ll see something different from the previous baddies, there’s the 2 items to attack him with and he has a heart level, it’s 4. Basically you’ll need either 2 Da Funks or 1 Glitter to clear them, as Da Funk do to 2 Heart Damage and a Glitter does 4. So if you Hut him with 1 Da Funk, in the usual way. Move the Da Funk until the green target circle is on a Backup Dancer, you’ll know it’s in target as it will turn purple, then simply hit the check mark to damage the Backup Dancer.
If you tap him again you’ll now see his Heart Level is down to 2. So you need hit him with another Da Funk. Don’t use a Glitter, save that for full health Backup Dancers.
Now finding the same Backup Dancer to hit is a pain in the rear, it took me ages as they dart around so much.
Now as I mentioned the best way to clear Backup Dancers is Glitter as 1 of these takes him right out. Just tap, aim and fire as usual.
Glitter – Does 4 Heart Damage, clearing the Backup Dancer instantly
Da Funk – Does 2 Heart Damage, clearing the Backup Dancer in 2 hits, but make sure you hit the same one.
I am seeing up to a maximum of 8 in my game.
The event rewards for clearing Backup Dancers are as follows:
Per Backup Dancer Cleared
1 Benjamin (Always)
1 Bow Tie (Chance)
