Aggressive tourists

Putting this simply, if you played the Making Of A Monster Hunter event at Halloween you’ll know exactly what you need to do with these and the other battles, as this is a rinse and repeat of the mechanisms of that event.

During the Side Questline, Art Of Blundr Dating, you will trigger the Aggressive Tourists in your Quahog. You will have to wait for them to appear before you can reject them, and you’ll need to have one of this weeks event characters unlocked, unless you buy Lindsey. So unless you bought her you’re not going to be going into battle with these for a while. So concentrate on unlocking Loincloth Chris and/or Loka for now. And don’t panic, you’ll get there.

So as I said battling Aggressive Tourists is similar to the battles we’ve done in other events, most recently in Making Of A Monster Hunter, Peter And The Masters of The Universe, Guys In Black and Kung Pow Quahog. Basically you will select a Character to battle, referred to in the game as reject, and as usual you will probably lose health and probably need to battle more than once to defeat the Aggressive Tourists. Then when defeated, you will earn Materials for the Event.

You will find the Aggressive Tourists wandering your sidewalks when she appears. Tapping on one will bring you up the Reject The Blundr Guy screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from the Attack screen below.

Opponent Stats:

Aggressive Tourist: 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use Stats  (you can select 2):

Loincloth Chris  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Loka ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Lindsey ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 50% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs

The rewards you get will depend on whether you only damage him, this is counted as a defeat, or if you fully kill him, this is a success. Remember any damage you do to her will stay until you attack him again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
In my game I got nothing, checking if this is as intended

SUCCESS Payout:
Selfie Stick (Always)
24 Dating Pics(Always)
2 Sunscreen (Always)

Cost To Battle:   1 Right Swipes (Uncommon) –  Get from Quagmire Check Out Lindsey, Joe Give Loincloth Chris A Warning, Shrine Of Likes, Loincloth Chris Update His Profile

BATTLE EXAMPLE

Battle Example: I tested this out using Lindsey, but Loincloth Chris has the same stats apart from a lower knockout chance, so this applies to him also. The Aggressive Tourist and Lindsey have the same Health Points  (8) and can do the same Damage Hit (4), so unless you get a lucky knockout blow you will need to attack the Aggressive Tourist twice to defeat him. Of course he also might get lucky and knock Lindsey out. And of course then there’s the chance either of you could miss.

I attempted 3 battles with Lindsey and here’s my results…

Battle 1:

Lindsey: Hit Vampiress -8
Aggressive Tourist: Hit Lindsey -4

Battle Result: Win

Battle 2: 

Lindsey: Hit Aggressive Tourist -4 (this takes Aggressive Tourist Health to 4 and he’s still not defeated)
Aggressive Tourist: Hit Lindsey -4

Battle Result: Defeat, even although it says successful match. 

Now you’ll see not only is the Aggressive Tourist at 4 Health, but you are at 0 health, this means you need to heal before you can battle again. And Lindsey takes 7 hours, this in my opinion is too long for a premium buy but I don’t make the rules. So you need to wait 7hrs unless you want to splash out clams to Revive your character. It costs 64 Clams to revive Lindsey.

Battle 3:

Lindsey: Hit Vampiress -4
Aggressive Tourist: Hit Lindsey -4

Battle Result: Win

Now another point worth mentioning about your character’s Health healing  it only starts to heal once it hits 0, so if you’ve 4/8 Health it will NOT go back up to 8/8 over time, it will only start to restore once you’re at 0/8.


Underwhelming magician

You will have to wait for him to appear before you can battle him and have one, preferably more, of this weeks event characters available. You really don’t want to be going into battle with him with only 1 character so concentrate on unlocking Loincloth Chris and/or Loka for now.

Battling the Underwhelming Magician is similar to defeating the Aggressive Tourist., he’s just tougher to defeat but dishes out better rewards, Hearts.

You will find him wandering your sidewalks when he appears.

Tapping on him will bring you up the Reject The Blundr Guy screen, which gives you all the battle information.

I’ve simplified the information from the Attack screen below.

I’ve simplified the information from the Attack screen below.

Opponent Stats:

Underwhelming Magician: 16 Health Points, 16 Damage Hit, Undisclosed chance of knockout

Characters you can use Stats  (you can select 2):

Loincloth Chris  ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Loka ~ 12 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 20% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs
Lindsey ~ 8 Health Points, 4 Damage Hit, 50% Chance knockout, Heal time 7hrs

The rewards you get will depend on whether you only damage him, this is counted as a defeat, or if you fully kill him, this is a success. Remember any damage you do to her will stay until you attack him again.

DEFEAT/ROUND Payout:
In my game I got nothing, checking if this is as intended

SUCCESS Payout:
6 Hearts (Always)

And remember if you send in more than one character to attack, which I recommend if possible, his damage will be split across them. So if you’ve 2 characters fighting him he will hit each for 8 damage instead of 16, unless he misses or does a knockout blow.

Cost To Battle:   2 Selfie Stick (Always) –  Get from clearing Aggressive Tourist

BATTLE EXAMPLE

Battle Example: I tested this out using Lindsey, but  as I say I recommend using more characters if you can, I just wanted to pull information for the site quickly.  Underwhelming Magician has much higher Health Points (16) than Lindsey who has 8 and he can do a much stronger Damage Hit (16), so if you get a lucky knockout blow, which actually only does 8 damage, you  will need to attack Underwhelming Magician  at least 2 times to defeat him using just Lindsey. If you only hit him for 4 Damage it will take 4 battles to defeat him. And of course he’ll wipe you out each battle, so you’ll need wait to heal between attacks. So you can see why attacking him shouldn’t be your priority just now, concentrate on getting a character to attack the Aggressive Tourists, as you’ll be able defeat them easier and of course this will let you build up some Selfie Sticks for when you can attack him.

I attempted 1 full kill with Lindsey and I got lucky as it only took me 2 attack battles to defeat him and spending hundreds of Clams to get through those as I needed to heal Lindsey  for not only these attacks but for attacks on Aggressive Tourists to get Selfie Sticks. So unless your clam rich please just forget him for now.

Battle 1:

Lindsey: Hit Abraham Lincoln -8
Underwhelming Magician: Hit Lindsey -16

Battle Result: Defeat

Battle 2: (Note – Underwhelming Magician now  only has 8 Health as I’ve hit him for -8 in the  previous battle)

Lindsey: Hit Underwhelming Magician -8 (this takes Underwhelming Magician Health to 0 and he’s  defeated)
Underwhelming Magician: Hit Lindsey -16

Battle Result: Success

Now you’ll see not only is Underwhelming Magician at 0 Health, but so are you again and this means you need to heal before you can battle again. And once again let me remind you Lily Munster takes 7 hours to heal or it costs 64 Clams to revive Lindsey immediately.

Now another point worth mentioning again about your character’s Health healing  is it only starts to restore once it hits 0, so if you’ve 4/8 Health it will NOT go back up to 8/8 over time, it will only start to restore once you’re at 0/8.


Music fan

These are the little baddies 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 a Metal Detector, you’ll get them here:

 Metal Detector (Common) –  Get from Overcharge For Candy, Herbert Go On A Blind Date, Lindsey Skip Class, Bonnie Doll Herself Up

Once you have a Metal Detector you will find crazed Music Fans  wandering  around your sidewalks.

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

Then move the net until the green target circle is on a Music Fank to clear the Music Fan.

I am seeing up to a maximum of 6 in my game.

The event rewards for clearing Music Fans are as follows:

Per Crazed Shopper Cleared
2 Dating Pics (Always)
1 Tribal Drum (Always)


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

  1. Yeah, sunscreens are not dropping at “always” for me either. I have completed all 7 battles to get enough, but in 3 of those battles I have received nothing. lol. -.-

    • Not always dropping as they should, I made TinyCo aware and they’ve said it’s a mistake it says always as it’s a chance drop

  2. I spent clams on Lindsey at the start of the event and finished week 1 already. So presumably either she makes a massive amount of positive difference or this was a pretty easy week. Also didn’t learn about Dino Tamer Peter until just now!

    • This time event buying the premium usually makes a difference in getting through Week 1 as you can be attacking straight away.

  3. I was just able to heal loincloth Chris with a bandage. Where did I get that from? A previous event? That was very odd.

  4. 3 days in and not a single loincloth from Chris, what gives? This drop rate is atrocious.

    Like

  5. Eight days and into the second mini-event since I’ve been able to open the game. Fortunately I’m enjoying it on about the same level as when I can. 😉

  6. I did not receive the 2 Sunscreens from clearing the Aggressive Tourist even though it shows as an Always drop. Has anyone else had this problem? I sent a message to TinyCo but they sent a canned response about memory limitations on older phones affecting functionality. This is not the problem as my phone works fine. It’s a glitch that needs to be corrected or else no Loka for me 😦

    • I didn’t get them the first time I fully defeated an Aggressive Tourist even although I’d repaired Loka but have dropped from them each time since. I’ve tested it 5 times since the non drop and got a total of 10 Sunscreen from those defeats.

      Like

  7. Sunscreen is not an always drop. Just defeated 1 didn’t get them. Then defeated another and got them

  8. i’m trying to figure out how to get loin clothes when you need loin cloth chris to get them. Am I wrong in that thought?

    Like

  9. Note that Quagmire and Joe’s tasks for right swipes only appear after you unlock your first “fighting” character (Loincloth Chris, Loka, or Lindsey).

    This essentially means that if you don’t buy Lindsey or the Shrine of Likes, you can’t collect ANY right swipes until after unlocking Loincloth Chris.
