Hey there Ya Yella Bellies!!!
Bouncing on by to bring y’all some information and stuff for the Wild West Event. With all the cool new things going on all at once, it is hard to focus on what goes where and who does what for this and that part of the Event.
In this post, I am going to break down Visiting your Neighbors for the Wild West Event.
Take a peek below to see the details.
First up, some general information….

- For the Main Questline, Go HERE
- For everything Event … HERE HERE HERE
There… links to stuff you need to know. Moving on…
WHEN DO NEIGHBOR VISITS START?
I always like to wait for the game Questline to tell me when to go visit my Neighbors during an Event. This way I know all the items I will be using will be active.
For Wild West Act One, that is Part 7 of the Main Questline. Once Upon a Time in Springfield.
The game will direct you to go drop off some Prospectors to a Neighbor during Part 7… also a good time to start visiting while you are there.
It is also good to check your Neighbor Screen to ensure your Neighbors are showing Clue Counts under them. This is a good sign they started the Event too.
WHAT DO I TAP ON IN A NEIGHBORS TOWN?
Bandits. You can tap on up to 3 Bandits per town. As you are limited to a 30 MAX taps to pay currency every 24hrs, do NOT tap anything else until you hit the MAX. If you tap on something else, like a building, it will still count towards your Daily Tap and you will lose that potential currency.
They try to stay on Roads in towns, so that is the best place to check first to locate them.
WHAT DO I GET FROM THE BANDITS?
Same Currency you will see in the Event. For each Bandit you tap on you will get…
+ 8 Pickaxes
+1 Prospector (more Rare)
In short ONE Clue and one other random item.
IS THERE A LIMIT TO BANDIT PAYOUTS?
YES! As noted above and with any Event prior you will be limited on just how many of your Neighbors you can tap on until the Event Currency stops paying out.
For this Event, I found in my games testing that you can have a MAX of 30 Neighbor Actions (or 10 Neighbors). I will test it again today, but 30 seems to be the number.
Once you hit that MAX, any taps on Bandits will just payout coins, XP, FP (if applies). (Side Note: I did not test yet to see if still getting donuts after MAX FP, please comment if you did.)
WHEN CAN I GET PAYOUTS AGAIN?
In 24hrs. The Neighbor Visits reset every 24hrs, so you can begin to collect more Event Currency at that point up to 30 MAX again.
HOW DO I KNOW MY 24HRS ARE UP?
This is something actually set up by YOU. If all your Neighbor towns were to reset to zero (no timer showing in Main Friend Screen under their name), the timer starts as soon as you enter that first one and tap. You will see it start to count down in your Main Neighbor Screen.
So if you are unsure or want to set it so you know, let ALL the towns go to zero and reset, then just use ONE town (like the “Other Springfield”) to be the first one tapped every single day and essentially your “timer” for the 24hrs.
WHAT ABOUT THE DEPUTY CREDENTIALS?
As you are playing the game and going through the Questline, you will see the Deputy Credentials unlock for you to purchase with 90 Donuts, more on it HERE.
WITHOUT the card you’ll earn 1 Clue per Bandit tapped (before you reach MAX).
WITH the Card you’ll earn 2Clue per Bandit tapped (before you reach MAX).
Per Alissa, she noticed with the card she earned pick axes AND hats from tapping bandits in neighbor’s towns instead of just one or the other randomly without it.
Now for the OTHER element of Neighbor Visits… Prospectors.
HOW DO I GET PROSPECTORS?
To clarify, I will focus on the ones that you can EARN to drop off to a Neighbor’s Town.
As the Bandits appear around towns you can tap on them and clear them to earn 4 variable items. One of those Random Items being a Poster with the Prospector pictured on it.
For every one of these you collect, you gain 1 Prospector to go drop off to a Neighbor.
Don’t confuse Prospectors Pictures with Clues.
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE PROSPECTORS I EARN?
As you will not earn a lot of these, I would suggest to “help” your Neighbors by scattering them around the many that you have. Possibly starting at the front of your list and dropping one off to each as you keep earning them until you reach the end of your list.
This will help both of you benefit from them better. As usual though, up to you on how you distribute them.
HOW DO I DROP OFF A PROSPECTOR?
Just go to any Neighbors town and look in the top Right Corner of the game screen. You will see the Prospector Image Icon with a Number on it. That number is the MAX amount of Prospectors you can drop off to that Neighbor.
If it is Zero, that means their town is already full and you have to wait til they clear some to give them more.
If a Number is there above zero, then just tap on the Icon. The game will take you to a random area of the town where a Prospector will be placed.
SIDE NOTE: These lil buggers are FAST!! They run EVERYWHERE in your town. At times if you wait in one spot a bit, they come to you.
WHAT DO I GET FROM A PROSPECTOR DROPPED IN MY TOWN?
Here is where the Benefit comes in, now with the Prospector in the town… your Neighbor will be alerted (delayed many times) that they have one “stealing their gold” and to go find them. You will see this too if one if dropped in yours.
So if you are able to locate the Prospector(s) in your town and tap on them you have a chance at getting per Prospector…
WHAT DO I GET IF MY NEIGHBOR TAPS ON MY PROSPECTOR?
This is what I was seeing in return for dropping off Prospectors in my Neighbors and my Neighbor finding them and tapping on them right away.
By your Neighbor clearing the Prospectors, you will have a chance at getting rewarded per Prospector found and tapped…
Now your Payout will NOT be the same as what they got in that you won’t get identical Materials.
It is essentially x the amount of Prospectors they cleared. So say they cleared 3 Prospectors, you get 3 payouts. ANY combo of the payouts listed above up til you get 3 total payouts.
For instance, if your Neighbor Cleared 3 Prospectors you can potentially get the Payout of one of the following options.
+12 +12 +12 OR +12 +24 +24 OR +12 +12+ 24 OR +24+24+24.
I dropped of 5 in a Neighbors Town, they cleared them right away and got random payouts. Here were mine in return. (see pic also at top of this section)
+96 Pickaxes (+24, +24, +24, +24)
Five total Payouts for 5 total Prospectors. Just a mix of 1 Payout per 1 Prospector cleared. Just like theirs will be random what the Prospector pays them. Just like tapping on them in your town gives a random payout.
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO CLEAR THE PROSPECTORS?
I am still testing this as I am getting mixed results, it is also hard to test with multiple people dropping off and picking up Prospectors while I am testing. I will update once my testing is complete.
From what it seems to look like, if a Neighbor takes too long to clear them out (approx 4hrs), your Neighbor gets nothing but you will still get a reward of…
Again, I am still trying to verify this. Feel free to share your results.
- Visit Neighbors once your 24hr clock resets
- Tap on ONLY Bandits up to 30 Neighbor Actions Total
- Earn Prospectors
- Drop Prospectors off in Neighbors
- Clear Prospectors placed in your town ASAP to benefit both you and your Neighbor.
There you have it, the basics of Neighbor Visits during the Wild West Event.
How are you doing so far with Neighbor Visits? How about Prospectors? How are your payouts coming along? Having fun? Let us know.
