Wild West 2016 Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 7 Longshot Skinner

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The Wild West is alive and well in our Springfields!  As the Wild West Event has hit our games and it’s full of old west inspired decorations, buildings & characters!

This Event is broken up into 3 Acts, with each Act containing part of the story.  To help you move along with the event you’ll get several prizes per Act.  Each prize will either be something fun for Springfield or something to help you move along in the event.  For the Third Act you’re tasked with collecting TNT (ico_wildwest_tnt_md) to unlock each prize!

The seventh Act 3 prize is awarded at 19,280ico_wildwest_tnt_md is Longshot Skinner, because it’s not the Old West without a disciplinarian riding through town on a horse with a shotgun…

  1. Man! They really did end it soon. I was hoping it would take us until late tonight & let us finish off our last prize like it did at the end of the casino event. So bummed! I only needed about 1200 TNT for Carl’s Dad Caverns, too. 🙁

  2. After I earn him to be able to watch the finale, is there more to the questline I have to finish before Tuesday?

  3. I wish that Longshot Skinner had a joint task to Ride on his true Trusty Steed, Superintendent Chalmers! 😂

  4. I’m puzzled – I’ve acquired all the act 3 prizes and when I tap on the town icon that shows the three acts, it says “you’ve got all of these prizes! Keep collecting event currency for more donuts” so that’s and there was an icon on the task bar to tap and see how you were doing. The first level was 2500 TNT and I was at around 240 when I checked, then gathered up the TNT from the general store that I could, went back and check and the count hadn’t gone up. Frustrating but… But now, the icon is gone and I can only assume we’re not going to get donuts at established levels even though I’m still being told to “keep collecting for more donuts”. However, I’m also wondering if this is a glitch. If so, is everyone experiencing it? I know my son is but thought I’d check here too. Thanks for any info you might have.

    • That wording has been there for every act….

      They did pull the task though, so not a glitch.

    • I had the same question, totally bummed that I finished the event early in hopes of earning donuts and now…nothing. I don’t even have the random quests anymore. Pretty disappointing.

  5. Is the grasshopper or is it cricket worth getting?

  6. I was quite amused by his “Protect the school” task; I happen to have trees and another building situated close enough to the school, that it looks like the trash is being thrown from behind them. Very neat effect.
