Update 3/16/2021: EA has FINALLY corrected a lot of issues with getting the Sideshow Bob questline (thus unlocking SSB) in your game. Woohoo!
Hey there Hoppereenos!
Bouncing on by with some pretty frakkin cool information. YOU can get Sideshow Bob into your game as a Character! Whaaaaaaa??? SERIOUSLY! No Donuts have to be spent. No Opera House Unlocked. Just Sideshow Bob, as a Character, just for YOU! WOOHOO!! AHHHHHH SIDESHOW BOB!!!!
Now for a Quick How-To on all of this…
Around Level 22 of your Game Play Dialog and Walkthrough (getting Springfield Penitentiary and getting Snake is where it popped up in our testing), you will trigger a Questline called Flaw and Order. You would normally think this is just the basic run through of when Sideshow Bob was introduced into Springfield as a Fugitive for you to chase down and capture. Well it is MORE than that now. As you follow the Questline, not only will you learn how to “tap and capture” the fugitive Sideshow Bob running through your Springfield and others, but now… at the end… you will FINALLY catch him and pull him into your game. You will then have Sideshow Bob as a Character!
Side Note: While testing this out, there did seem to be a few “catches” in the dialog between Level 22 and Level 23, so do not be discouraged… just keep on going through the Level Walkthroughs and his Questline will continue on.
Here is the Basic Rundown of Flaw and Order
Part 1: (Capture) Arrest Sideshow Bob 1 Time
Part 2: (Capture) Arrest Sideshow Bob 3 Times
Part 3: (Capture) Arrest Sideshow Bob 5 Times
After you catch him 5 Times, you will then be rewarded… WITH A FREE SIDESHOW BOB! WOOHOO!!
Pro Tip: If you are having trouble finding or seeing Sideshow Bob for the Captures, just hop in n out of your “Other Springfield” and immediately head for Squidport. For some reason he really likes to hang out there, so you will usually be able to capture him there.
There you have it. Now YOU can get Sideshow Bob into your Springfield if you missed out on him during the Terwilliger’s Event. You know you all want and need a lil more Sideshow Bob in your games. I know I LOVE the fact he is finally in my game as a Character. WOOHOO!!
What do you think of it all? Have you stumbled upon this questline yet? Are you close to getting Sideshow Bob into your game? Let us know.
