Hey there Superheroes!!
Issue 3 of the Superheroes Event has just begun and you are wondering if you’re doing it right. If you are doing all you can to get those Freeze Rays quickly. Well this post is here to help you get an idea of how to get the most out of your daily game interactions. How to get the MOST Freeze Rays you can.
To begin, all the information is very similar as in past events. The more time you spend in your game, the more chances you have at Freeze Ray Earning Actions. The more Neighbors you visit daily, along with you just playing daily… will all contribute to YOUR individual results.
Now for the Breakdown…
FREEZE RAYS FROM CRIMINALS IN YOUR TOWN
You will start collecting Freeze Rays fairly quickly once you complete Issue 2 and your game swaps out to Issue 3 content. Then you will able to start Capturing Goggle Wearing Criminals in your own town and getting Freeze Rays from them. (You may also still have a few stragglers from the previous Criminals, no worries…once you switch over all the Event Currency switches to Freeze Rays too.)
Again, the Spawn Rate is a bit vague on just how many per Spawn, but we do at least know the following:
1 Criminal every 5 mins in your town
30 MAX allowed in your town at a time
There IS a Bank listed, but in the past we found this was sketchy and unreliable, so for player sake… I will not fully rely on it.
Let’s take a look at what YOU can earn in your town from just the Criminals alone. Every 2 1/2 hrs you will MAX out based on the 1 every 5 mins Criminal Spawn. To make it simpler, I will show a few options At just the 2hr mark. Also as in past events, if you wait a lil bit in your town… it seems the Criminals will eventually come to where YOU are in the game.
Visit your town every 2 hours to get 24 Criminals giving 20 Freeze Rays each equals a Payout of 480 Freeze Rays every 2 hours.
480 Freeze Rays x 4 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 1920
480 Freeze Rays x 5 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 2400
480 Freeze Rays x 6 visits daily (every 2 hrs)= 2880
480 Freeze Rays x 7 visits daily (every 2 hrs)= 3360
480 Freeze Rays x 8 visits daily (every 2 hrs) = 3840
So as you can see, even just a minimal visit to your town every day can still yield you quite a few Freeze Rays and hit that daily average really quickly. The daily average to shoot for right now is 4731. (See the Issue 3 Calendar HERE.)
There is also an added incentive. Once you get all Issue 3 Freeze Rays (61,500), you will given the option to continue to collect Freeze Rays and get the chance at those 3 Donut Mystery Boxes containing 1/ 2/ or 3 donuts. Each additional 6000 Freeze Rays you earn past the 61,500 will unlock the chance. If you don’t get 3 right away, a retry will cost $150,000 Each so make sure you’re ready if needed. This will continue until Issue 4 and the new Event Currency is launched in your game. (See more info on the Calendar.)
You should have the Collector unlocked long before collecting Freeze Rays, so while tapping in the Criminals in your town, no matter what disguise they are in, you will continue to see the Arbitrarium and Pick Locks dropping from them. Sometimes one Criminal will drop all 3 items. Freeze Rays, Lock Picks, and Arbitrarium.
Now that you are in Issue 3, you should have leveled up a few more times on the HQ and be getting higher and higher payouts of …now… Freeze Rays. I hardly play one of the games and am already to Level 13 in that game. (More on the Payouts at each HQ Level HERE.)
Let’s look at a few options. I will only go up a few upgrade levels to give you an idea of how many you can get daily at even the lowest levels.
Level 10: 125 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
125 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 375
125 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 500
125 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 625
Level 11: 135 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
135 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 405
135 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 540
135 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 675
Level 12: 145 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
145 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 435
145 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 580
145 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 725
Level 13: 155 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
155 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 465
155 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 620
155 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 775
Level 14: 165 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
165 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 495
165 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 660
165 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 825
Level 15: 175 Freeze Rays every 4hrs
175 Freeze Rays x 3 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 525
175 Freeze Rays x 4 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 700
175 Freeze Rays x 5 daily visits (every 4hrs) = 875
The more you level up, the more payout you will get. The more times you visit, the more you will get from collecting on the HQ. Just keep capturing those Criminals to get the Freeze Rays and you will get Arbitrarium too. Then you can Level Up your Super Squad HQ.
Another cool thing about the HQ is when you Level Up, your “tapping” area is expanded. This means you will get MORE Criminals in one tap as it will create a “ring” that will span out further than your tapping finger and Capture any Criminals within that radius ring. Making it so if you have 2 or more Criminals in a close range, you will get them all with one tap.
SIDE NOTE: With the Collector unlocked and you working to obtain his items, the HQ will be helping in that process by dropping Capes. I have noticed in my games that I see one of two options.
Either way, I am still getting the Cape and Payout that I should be every 4 hours.
FREEZE RAYS FROM PLAYING DAILY
If you just show up daily in your town, you will be rewarded with the Event Currency for doing so via the Daily Play Combo. Each day you go into your town, you will get a higher payout until Day 5, then it will restart.
Just make sure you visit at least once every 24hrs and you will get the Daily Rewards.
FREEZE RAYS FROM FELONS
This is another way to get some Freeze Rays. First, you will need to release a Felon. (For complete details, see the Burns State Prison Post.) You will get 1 every 8hrs, so release them as soon as one spawns at the Prison so you can send Characters to defeat them as much as possible. Having MORE is a good thing as you can only send ONE Character to get rid of ONE Felon at a time.
Once you launch into Issue 3, each time you send a Character to get rid of a Felon, you will get a payout of Freeze Rays for completing the task. The payout will depend how many “hits” the Felon has taken and how many hearts he has left.
Let’s look at the Character choices you have with Issue 3 to help clear the Felons and the Payout for each Heart Level. Your choices will vary on what Characters YOU unlocked and/or Purchased.
Felon at 3 Hearts
25 Freeze Rays (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 50 Freeze Rays
Felon at 2 Hearts
75 Freeze Rays (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 150 Freeze Rays
Felon at 1 Heart (1 set of Handcuffs)
150 Freeze Rays (every 4 hrs) x 2 daily attempts = 300 Freeze Rays & 2 Sets of Handcuffs.
Felon at 3 Hearts
25 Freeze Rays (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 25 Freeze Rays
Felon at 2 Hearts
75 Freeze Rays (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 75 Freeze Rays
Felon at 1 Heart (1 set of Handcuffs)
150 Freeze Rays (every 3hrs) x 1 daily attempts = 150 Freeze Rays & 1 set of Handcuffs
As you can see having Spider Pig, Fruit Batman, and Bartman will get you more Freeze Rays with less time spent in the game. The more Felons, the more chances at getting rid of them and getting more Freeze Rays so release them from the Prison as soon as they are ready.
With The Collector is unlocked, remember the Crafting option is tossed in the mix. You will see Freeze Rays AND 1 set of Handcuffs drop everytime you COMPLETELY defeat the Felon on their last Heart. So the 150 Freeze Ray Payout & 1 set of Handcuffs.
Now you have a basic idea of how to get Freeze Rays from just playing daily. Now for more extras that will add to your Freeze Rays Totals.
FREEZE RAYS FROM NEIGHBORS
As with previous events, you can visit your neighbors to get help with the Event Currency. Issue 3 is Freeze Rays. Now, just like any other time, you will be limited on actions as you visit Neighbors. The following is the Breakdown of your Neighbor Visit Actions.
(This will NOT start til the HQ is built and you get to New Hero Rises Part 2 during the questline in Issue 1.)
90 Daily Actions on Capture Criminals x 3 Freeze Rays per Criminal = 270 Freeze Rays Daily. (Also with Level 50 and New FP Prizes, you will also start collecting FP for every Criminal Tapped. More in this in the Neighbor Visiting Post.)
(Once you unlock The Collector, you will also get Red Telephones dropping randomly from tapping on the Red Telephones in your Neighbors, so keep going as long as you can to help get the Collector’s Items.)
The less Neighbors you have, the less Freeze Rays you will get from the Red Telephones.
This is just from visiting neighbors, but do not stop there. Once you have your FP at the MAX, you can also get that additional random FREE Donut from continuing to Capture Criminals. The amounts vary daily on what you get. The more you visit and more neighbors you have the better the odds.
FREEZE RAYS FROM THE SUPERIOR SQUAD MEMBERSHIP
If you want even MORE from your Capturing Criminals in Neighbors towns, you can invest 90 Donuts in the Superior Squad Membership and double your Criminal Freeze Rays Payout. Doubling your Payout from 3 each Action to 6 Each Action.
So instead of 270 Freeze Rays a day from 90 Criminal Captures Actions you can earn 540 Freeze Rays daily from Criminal Captures. (See the Should I Buy Post on it HERE.)
FREEZE RAYS FROM RADIOACTIVE SYMBOLS
This event is very Neighbor involved as well. When you go to a Neighbors town or they to yours and tap on that Red Telephone, it initiates the “Report Criminal” action. The one tapping on the Red Telephone gets 1 Freeze Rays for doing so and the one having their Building tapped on get an alert a Crime has been reported in their town and to hurry to respond.
Now how does the payout work on the Radioactive Signal? Well as soon as the Building is tapped and the Signal launched a countdown begins. How long it takes for YOU to clear that Radioactive Signal will impact what payout YOU get. It breaks down as follows…
Signal first appears up to 3hrs 59mins = 4 Freeze Rays per Signal
4hrs to 7hrs 59mins = 3 Freeze Rays per Signal
8hrs to 11hrs 59mins= 2 Freeze Rays per Signal
12 hrs to 15hrs 59mins= 1 Freeze Rays per Signal
As you can see, the sooner you clear those Signals the higher Freeze Rays payout you will get from each one. Clear them as fast as you can and as often as you can to allow your Neighbors visiting something to Report a Crime on. If you don’t clear them, your Neighbor will see no Red Telephone and have nothing to tap on Building wise. (It is also really cool as it activates the animation on the building tapped.)
With Level 50, there are also TWO New Friend Point (FP) Prizes. So by clearing out the Radioactive Signal, you will also be collecting 1 FP each one cleared. This will help you hit that MAX again really fast as well as earning 2 cool new prizes. (More on this in the Neighbor Post.)
FREEZE RAYS FROM CHARACTER TASKS
As you go through the questlines in the Event, more and more tasks will unlock to help you earn the Event Currency. Some just after you get the Characters, some a few tasks into the questline.
Here are those Characters and their tasks that Payout Freeze Rays.
There you have it. MANY ways to hit the targets for the Personal Prizes in Issue 3. YOU just need to put in the time and effort. It may seem like you can’t keep up as first, but as you continue to unlock more and more and get further along, it will get easier and easier.
Where are YOU on the Freeze Rays count? What items have YOU won so far from the Personal Prizes? How is your Criminal and Felon capturing going? You excited to get the Collider? Did you buy Fruit Batman? Did this help you out to not worry so much? Let us know.
