Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!
Secret A-gent man! Secret A-gent man! New update…woohoo!! While many of us expected an event to hit our stores, I don’t think anyone saw this one coming!
Secret Agents Event hit our devices yesterday afternoon and with it arrived, not only a whole slew of secret agents, but a whole new questline to work our way through!
As was mentioned on the rundown post Act 1 runs until April 11th, and you’ll need Homer to get things started.
Remember, the questline is there to guide you. So when you get stuck on something, or haven’t unlocked something, just follow along with the questline and it’ll take you through everything you need to do to complete the first Act and unlock everything you need in order to play properly.
So let’s take a look at the questline to see just what happens when Springfield goes covert….

And that completes the Act 1 questline! Loads of funny dialogue and plenty to keep you busy for the next 2 weeks…
What are your thoughts on the Act 1 questline? Pretty straight forward? Or still confused? Any prizes you’re looking forward to? Sound off in the comments below, you know we love hearing from you!
Hi All, I’m never going to be able to collect all the Act 1 prizes. I’m just not getting enough Intel or Schematics. Am I doing something wrong? I play 3 or 4 times a day at present surely that should be enough. I’ve never had a situation like this with any theme before, it’s really frustrating. Have EA said anything?
I’m not sure if it will help, but Patric did a great write-up about it with a calendar and timeline
Good luck 😊
Ummm…I don’t think you’re allowed to post stuff like that here. Alissa – can you confirm whether this is legit? Maybe I’m off-base with my thinking on this….
Ugh i didn’t approve it (i was sleeping) someone else must have missed it
No worries….I figured it was something like that. Just didn’t know whether you might want to delete it after the fact.
Is there a way to control the drone flight? Mine keeps going off to land squares I haven’t purchased yet.
No, it can’t be controlled 🙁
Well that bites doughnuts
Itsme_bj turtle 😛
No, you can’t control the drone, but you can move the building, which would change the game’s focal point location. However, my drone also spends some time on unpurchased land,, and I still manage to get around 35-41 agents (plus a few secret agents) each time I play, which, based on others’ comments, seems to be a good number.
Apologies if this has been covered already in another post. Anyone know if it makes a difference in rearranging the area around the Surveillance Post / Agency HQ etc. to make it more advantageous to complete the drone scan game? Right now I have the buildings in an open area somewhat surrounded by buildings (Zenith City lofts and apartments). There are agents in the ‘open’ but also among the buildings. I have approx. 30 buildings up against one another. I usually find about a total of 35 agents in each game. I wonder if there’s a strategy in the placement of the Surveillance Post to possibly find more agents?
Also, is there any advantage to clearing the Men in Tan Suits BEFORE playing the drone scan game, or do you end up earning the same amount of intel schematics and schematics?
So, just to be clear… can I leave the Hank Scorpio questline (Helium-Neon gas laser) for after the event so I can use the skin for event currency?
Ugh, and the low schematic drop is annoying and super grueling. I understand if they want to slow it down a bit but this is ridulously slow. People who can’t get on every 4 hours are doomed! I suppose we will see how well it actually picks up in acts 2/3.
Loads of funny dialogue and plenty to keep you busy – even if you don’t have Hank Scorpio 👍😋
Excuse my last comment. Glad to see I’m not the only with the problem collecting
