Winter Summer Reunion Parade Floats Mini-Game

Just wanted to float by with some information on bursting  some parade Balloons in  the Winter Summer Reunion event.

ADDICTS QUICK explanation

Please be aware you need 1 BB Gun to play the game!!!

You need to hit the middle area of the Balloons, so to hit multiple Balloons with one  shot, look to target the Balloon middle letters, especially when overlapping each other. For Summer Balloons that’s the MM area and for Winter Balloons that’s the NT area.

ADDICTS long winded explanation

With the new event we are seeing the return of an old style mini-game and in order to be able to participate you’ll need to collect a BB Gun, you’ll get them here:

 BB Gun (Common) –  Get from Rambo Lois Look At The Floats, American Johnny Order Kiminci, Plastic Surgery Peter Enjoy The Reunion, Sujin Listen To K-Pop, Gold Suit Brian Aim At Balloons, Buy From Store

Once you have 1 BB Gun just tap on the Gun Icon in the bottom right of your screen.

After tapping on this, the Parade Float Balloon mini game will appear.

You will see on the top of the screen the Rewards you can  win from clearing Parade Balloons. The amount of BB Guns  you have available in the Lower Left. The Shoot button in the Lower Right. (If you’ve no BB Guns it will show Need More) Then in the center, you will see the circle that is essentially your target that you will use to get the Parade Balloons, note it’s orange when nothing is in target.

This is really an “Aim n Shoot” kind of set up. You wait for a minute while the Balloons float around, then move the circle to target them. It should turn green when you are close to the middle 2 letters  of a balloon, MM in Summer, and NT in Winter.

Please try to ensure the small target circle inside the larger circle is on one of the above letters. It can be anywhere on these letters. But if you’re anywhere else you will miss your target and waste BB Guns.

As you can see it’s the little circle that targets and only on the centre area. As you can see below the little circle is now on a letter but it’s still not turned green as that letter is not within the coded target area.

Below is what you’re looking for to hit the target. Note I’m targeting the MM area, and this go would  clear you 1 Float Balloon.

But the secret of this mini-game is to try target more than 1 Balloon, so be patient and wait until you see a group of Balloons together then target them and quickly hit SHOOT. It’s harder than it looks, but I’ve managed to hit 3 Balloons at once. So wait for an overlap of that crucial area in Balloons, the targeting below is an example.

This saw me clear 3 Balloons with 1 BB Gun, and if you’re good or lucky you can clear more.

You will then be given Rewards for the Balloons you popped with your BB gun.

The rewards you get will vary on how many Balloons you shoot at a time.

Per Balloon Shot:
1 or 2 Bananas (Chance)
1 Confetti (Chance) – Please note the Confetti will only show once you have repaired Sujin for unlocking.

There you have the overall basics to get you started through the Parade Float Balloon mini-game. Where are you so far? Anything particular you like the most? Suggestions or tips to fellow players? Let us know.

  1. It is very interesting to note that if you open the shooting gallery and tap on “Help,” it tells you that the circle must turn green and to target the 2 middle balloons – all you need to know..


  2. Really struggling with this


  3. Gotten better at popping balloons. Best thing to look for is that the overlapping balloons that don’t have letters sticking out the right or left sides. They pretty much have to occupy the same space, and that’s easiest to see by looking at the width of the stack of balloons.

    Now the annoying issue is that the drops of confetti seem pretty lame. I’ve saved up 3 guns, popped 10 balloons, got like 14 bananas, but only 3 or 4 confetti. At this rate, getting the 60 needed is going to take a long time.


  4. line up 3+ overlapping balloons, get 1. what am I doing wrong?!


  5. 3 guns out of 10 quest. A common item? I’ll try it, if I every gain another one. Mainly, since I really have no plans to buy them.


  6. I was lucky enough to get a couple 4s. Seems like if you track a nice grouping to the edge of the screen, a new one often pops in heading the other way and stacks nicely for a second! YMMV


  7. Hit 3 balloons first time, then 2, and once a 1, even though there was more than one balloon overlapping. Unfortunately, this seems to be continuing the trend of these games where you can’t predict how many balloons you pop by looking at it, because it never makes sense. Last time got zero because I was apparently too near the edge.


  8. im mostly clearing 2
    i got 3 once
    and 4 once


  9. Once again to the rescue! I managed one balloon out of three attempts prior to seeing this. First one after? Four hit with one BB gun. You rock!


  10. I wasted my first shot before I read your post – it’s tricky and it takes patience, but I’ve managed to hit 4 one time. Wait until at least a 3 balloon shot presents itself – it generally takes a little time.


  11. When I open the shooting gallery and then tap the little box on the bottom left where the guns are tallied, it shows American Johnny Quagmire next to Rambo Lois, implying he will drop guns as well once we get him.. but I see you and the support FAQ do not list him as a source of guns. (happy “insert name of holiday you celebrate this month”, RT, best wishes to you and yours)


    • It certainly looks like he does but I’ve not confirmed as yet, once I do I’ll be adding it to the post. I’m not really celebrating anything this weekend, apart from chocolate, but will enjoy the long weekend. Same to you.


    • He does have a 4hr task with chance drop
