Hey Howdy Hey My Elfish Tappers!
Well….unless you’ve been caught in a major snowstorm you know that Christmas has arrived in Springfield! A light snow is falling & Santa has arrived in town! By now we’re all busy sending those elves and residents to the workshop to make presents!
With this event EA is repeating a similar prize structure to what they did for Halloween, only more prizes, and releasing the event (and prizes) in stages. For the first phase, which lasts until Christmas Eve (12/24), you can win 8 prizes by collecting Presents. The seventh prize awarded at 10,800 Presents is Bonestorm Santa.
Let’s take a closer look at super trooper Santa, and just what happens when you add him to your Springfield..
WARNING Mild Dialogue Spoilers Ahead
Once you’ve collected 10,800 Presents Bonestorm Santa will automatically be awarded to you and you’ll see this popup:
Much like Friendship Prizes, if you’re visiting a neighbor when you hit the 10,800 Presents mark this message will still popup and this Santa will be waiting for you in your inventory once you get back to your Springfield.
Bonestorm Santa will be placed in your inventory, so you’ll have to go into your inventory to retrieve it. Just tap on the “use” icon to place it in your Springfield:
He is a character, BUT he’s an non-playable one (NPC). Which means he’ll walk around your Springfield & have animation when tapped..but he’ll have no tasks associated with him.
He’s part of the Winter 2014 Character Set:
Once placed in your Springfield some short dialogue between Ned & Bart will popup & a very minor task will be associated with it. Here’s the full rundown:
Bad to the Bone
Ned: What the-diddly?! What is that thing?!
Bart: It’s the Bonestorm Santa! Only the coolest Christmas Themed video game character EVER!
Ned: But it’s supposed to be the season of love, not rocket launchers! Whoever puts these characters in a video game has a sad and twisted view of human interactions.
Bart: So, that would be all game developers.
Tap Bonestorm Santa
Completed Task Earns 100 Presents and 10XP
So here’s the deal with this Rocket Launcher Santa:
-Non-Playable Character for Springfield
-No tasks/quests associated with him. And no character interaction.
-Animated when tapped.
-Basically a Santa version of Frosty the Hitman
So that about covers all the details on Bonestorm Santa!
