METAL MOTHS

You will see Metal Moths on your sidewalks once you reach Pt 3 of the main Questline and you need to put a Character on a task to clear them. There are only 2 Characters that can do this, Billionairebot and Ghost Calculon. Simply tap on a Metal Moth, and you’ll bring up the attack screen. On this screen you’ll see the heart Power of the Metal Moth, and the Characters you can use to take the heart Power to 0. Metal Moths have 20 Heart Power so either neither Character can clear them in one task if they are Level 1, you will need to Level them up to increase the damage they can do. For example you’ll need Ghost Calculon at Level 15 to be able to do 20 damage in one task. So be prepared for this to take time. It takes 6 hours for the task to complete and as I said you’ll need to do the task twice to reduce a Metal Moth’s health to 0 until you’ve levelled up your characters.

The rewards you get for clearing them are as follows:

1 Battery (Always)
25 Robot Souls (Always)
3xp (Always)


NEW SPACE MISSIONS

And we’re on our travels again, as this first week of the event brings us 1 new Space Mission to complete. It’s located on Chapek 9 and will unlock as you progress through the Main Questline. This mission will take some time to navigate but you can’t ignore it forever as it’s the source of the Metal Moth you’ll need to progress.

Now here’s the basic information you’ll need to plot your way through the many paths in this Space Misdion, but remembe ber you’ll find a Snapshot guide to the easiest path HERE.

Mission Name: Ahead Of The Game
Mission Location: Chapek 9
Objective: Our Money’s On You
Number of Paths: 13
Fuel Per Stop: 1
Total Fuel Required to complete all Paths: Approx 700 – Ouch
Required Character: None
Recommended Character Level: Level 9
Helpful Character/Class for Paths: Billionaire Bot L10, Plain Clothes URL L8, Delivery L20, Influencer L17, Robot Devil L20, Villain L25
Helpful Character/Class for Interactions: Scientist 10, Robot 10, Delivery Boy 10
Maximum Crew: 5
First Time Path Completion Rewards: 2 Giga Career Chip, 5 Pizza, 36 Robot Souls
Repeat Path Completion Rewards: 2 Giga Career Chip, 5 Hypnotons, 9 Robot Souls
One-Time Reward for 100% Completion: 25 Pizza, 45 Robot Souls
Combat Rewards: 1 Incubot Metal per Incubot defeated, 1 Moth Metal per Robot Moth defeated & 5 Robot Souls per Combat (occasionally I received 10 Robot Souls)
Enemies: Anti-Human Patrol, Chapek Guards, Chapek Robots, Robot Elders, Incubots & Robot Moths
Interaction Rewards: X & Career Chips
xp Per Node: 4
Artifact: n/a

As you can see above Ahead Of The Game is a complex maze of Paths that resembles a Devils head. Many of the paths require unlocking with a high level Character and/or Class and trying to complete the mission 100% is not for the faint hearted, but for those crazy enough to try here’s how I’ve plotted my paths to attempt it. Remember this is just my plan, you can of course follow a different path.


There you have the overall Basics that I can give you for the second wave of Episode 2: Robot Hell On Earth event.

What do you think of it so far? Any tips for fellow Players? Any items you’re frightfully excited about? Any items you immediately purchased? Let us know in the comments.

  1. Just curious if I’m alone on this on not, but I haven’t played the game since Day 1 of the event due to an unresolved bug in the game that I got soon after starting the event. It’s Scruffy with the following error “Error: Empty id in T* Bpc::ConfigObjectFactory::newObjectForId(const KeyType&) const [with T = Bpc::FUPlaceable; KeyType = std::basic_string]”
    I’ve sent a ticket in, I’ve reinstalled the game, but I’ve only ever gotten an-auto response of we’re working on it and you have a tried reinstalling it (even though in my message I clearly state that I’ve already tried it several times).

      • I appreciate the offer to help. Would be disappointing to completely miss the event, especially since there’s no guarantee of being given a second chance at the characters made available during the event.

        • Hi Seth

          This is an issue TinyCo are looking at but they’ve told me it affects Android devices with very low available RAM at the time of the crash (they recommend at least 1GB for an Android device, as the OS occupies a large % of the RAM). They suggest you restart your phone, employ a task killer, or manually make sure that there are no background processes. Pay attention to both Facebook and Snapchat if you have them as these run in the background. Then try loading game. Let me know if this helps.

          • Thought I’d follow up since you were helpful in trying to figure out the problem. I’ve been running on a Galaxy s8 with no problems until this event. I actually started it (ran the first couple 6 second tasks), but when I came back had the error, and it never went away. I have a task killer, forced closed everything, and confirmed I have more than 1GB of free RAM too. With the latest google play update that came out Wednesday night, I have been able to play, so it looks like that included a fix. My new problem is the fact that there is no way in robot hell that I can get through all of the waves in time to earn all of the free characters. I’ve been playing pretty hardcore since I got in. I’ve got all the wave one prizes, robot gypsy, and will be on the last task in a couple hours, but will still suffer from the typical tinyco bottleneck issues (i.e. I have no opera glasses for devilish fry even though it’s a drop every 3 hours, and I’ve had the building since Thursday night, so I’m 0 for a lot). I have over 500 in pizza, but I’m not spending it to rush jobs when I’m behind because of technical issue that was not my doing. I have reached out to tinyco once so far since I got back in the game trying to subtly request help in catching up but have not heard back. I mean, I see that Roberto is available in wave 4, but I have no chance of getting him with out tinyco’s help. So I’m curious to see what they do.

  3. Hi guys,
    I have a really dumb question. Has to be dumb since no one asked it before.
    But i’m completely stuck. So appreciate your comments.
    To unlock BillionaireBot, I need Fancy Watches, which you get from the Thermoelectric Pelters, which you need 9 Moth Metal to build, which you get from the mission Ahead of The Game, which you need Thunder Bombs to win, which you need 2 batteries to build, which you get from
    1. the billionaire’s mansion (by chance every 10 hours!), Would take weeks to get enough to build enough bombs to win 1 mission.
    2. from defeating robot moths : you need Billionaire Bot => Loop.
    3. From the Thermoelectric Pelters => Loop.
    So is the only chance to break this loop really to wait several days to drop 20 batteries by chance from the Billionaire’s mansion?

    • If you need moth metal but have no bombs then you could do space missions the long way ie – do battle and chip away at each moth 1 hit point at a time.

      It’s extremely long winded, can take upwards of 10mins per battle, but as soon as you get their attack down to 1 point you can just leave your phone unlocked and do something else to pass the time. And use fire bombs though to knock any incubots out of the battle, saves a little bit of time that way.

      You’ll need 1 or 2 robots in the crew and use their special attack multiple times to build up the defence stats for the team so the enemy hits only cause you 1 damage. It’s best if you have the characters at least level 20 too so they’ve got decent defence stats to begin with.

    • Yes,
      Tiny Co have gotten greedy very quickly in this game. They are making progression in this event almost impossible without spending real money on pizza slices.
      In reality they are going to loose a lot of players very quickly !!!

      • The events are hard but they are much less premium heavy than FGQFS was, but I know it’s tough if you’re a freemium player, my advice is to go into events not expecting to complete them, then if you do it’s a bonus.

        Like

        • Good advise, don’t go into events expecting to always easily be able to get everything. Right now I am lucky, since I can grind out space missions and have pretty much completed week two. But that won’t always be the case and if the RNG gods don’t smile on you, one can be in a world of frustration.

  4. I am still stuck on part 9 of the quest. The devil hotel I got three days ago but I still have not receive any if the items from it. Guess I will not be moving into part two until next week when part three comes out if I am lucky

  5. Even though fuses are marked as common, they are dropping the slowest. I have about 50 cannisters and 10 wires, but no fuses. They should increase the drop rate or at least number of buildings that drop them (or add some drops to space missions). One piece of adcice – new space map introduces incubots plus moth bots, damagable only through bombs (incubots fire bombs, moths by yellow bombs). If you have time, you can do it even without bombs – I suggest to take one scientist, one negotiator (heals), two robots plus one. As soon as the mission starts (and charge is up), use both robots to increase defense (and do so till every your character takes only -1 damage). First target normal enemies to get rid of them. Then target the bomb requiring enemy (if there are two, one of them) – when you have high enough defense (all characters take only -1dmg), leave your phone/tablet and go doing something else. In about 10 minutes (or 20 if more enemies) return and continue with next fight. It is time consuming, but you do not have to sit next to phone as dmg done to your characters is minimal (so no need to clicking for additional defense) and damage you do is also minimal (no need to click for additional damage). So just let the fight go and do something else. It will let you continue building stuff without having to wait for moth drops.

    Like

    • Agreed – the “common” drop rate for fuses is not that common.

      I ran through the space mission (with no bombs) but took 3 scientists, 1 robot, and 1 negotiator. Sometimes the moth & incubots are side by side so your scientists can wittle them down quicker. The robo-defense gets you to 1 dam pretty quickly and you can easily heal up within a few rounds, so no need to bring multiples of those guys. Just my opinion.

  6. Personally think it’s a bit rubbish that Billionaire Bots Mansion has 3 diff items it can drop – Batteries to create the Thunderbomb, Keys for URL, and Brandy to unlock Billionaire Bot.
    They could have easily put some of those with other characters. The core characters you unlock early on, except for Fry, aren’t being used for anything other than space missions.
