Secret Agents Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 7 Stradivarius Cain

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

The spies are invading Springfield!  Yes, the Secret Agent update has hit our games.  We’ve got hacking, drones, dossiers & a whole new prize track to work our way through!

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 Corporate Intel () to unlock each prize!

The seventh (and final) Act 3 Prize awarded at 70,250 is Stradivarius Cain, because sometimes even a hallucinated agent is better than no agent at all..

So let’s take a closer look at this seventh prize and just what happens when you unlock it in your Springfield…

Once you’ve collected 70,250 you’ll automatically be awarded Stradivarius and you’ll see this message popup:

You’ll be given the option to place Strad immediately in Springfield or Store him in your inventory for later.  Remember if you store him you’ll have to go into your inventory later to retrieve it.

Once you place Stradivarius you’ll see his Unlock Message Popup:

  1. I thought it was really difficult this time to reach the final prizes, and yet I play every single day! :-/ Haven’t unlocked any of them and it dosn’t look like I’ll get Stradivarius either 🙁

  2. Would you rather a 2nd parachute target or a 2nd HQ?

  3. I unlocked him today. At exactly the same time I unlocked the yakuza guy so that’s nice. I have won all the prizes and crafted what I liked, so now I can take it easy.

  4. Any idea if anything is up right after this event? Time for a major redesign of my Springfield but don’t want to miss any events

  5. I’ll never see him, …
    I’m 8,000 away from getting the lake headquarters

    That’s from only playing on Sat/Sun …..not bad

    It appears that EA is now employing 8th graders as writers. Jenny Talia ? Really?

  7. I’m struggling with this event. …I can’t pronounce Secret Agents Prize Guide: Act 3, Prize 7 Stradivarius Cain without my tounge twisting 😀

  8. I have to get 5 dounts in 3.5 days to get the house

    • How much cash do you have? If you have a good chunk, you can try buying and selling rat trap trucks or bloodmobiles.

  9. I loved Homer’s one hour spit take, I wish it were a permanent task.

  10. Great animation and hilarious dialogue

  11. Got him this morning, glad I didn’t have to stress much this event. I haven’t had a lot of extra time, so I’ve only been on two or three times a day.

    • That’s about what I did with this event – tapping twice a day. I do have almost all the premium characters so my count goes up quicker than many. I got Strad last night so I’m almost done. The hq castle is the only thing I need; except for maybe crafting a couple more things. A very enjoyable event, though it ran a bit long. I hope everyone had a (mostly) good time!

      Question: Will EA ever give us a confirm button for visiting friends??? I always accidentally tap that pic of Bart & Mil and can’t get out of it. Big waste of time. Or changing the ‘move’ button to the end next to where the various event buttons always go might help? I hit the neighbors tab when I’m going for the ‘move’ one, I think. Maybe it’s just me? 🤔 RachelS

  12. got him today.and i have around almost 4k schematics huh ill probably just buy everything again ×3 the end it wasnt a problem to collect them 😀

  13. Can’t wait to see his various visual tasks…he’s been locked away in HQ ever since I earned him a few days ago.

    When this event is over, I think I have about 11 different questlines to compete….I hope we get a bit of a break before the next event, so I can play catch-up with all of the new characters who have been locked away in HQ since I got them!

  14. I unlocked him in both my games this morning
    So far so good, just would like him to have a voice
    I have enjoyed this event but will be happy when Tuesday comes and I can get all my tasks done and do some remodeling
    Looking forward to a break when I can send everyone on 24 hour tasks for a few days
    Not a bad event

  15. Amused by EA’s lazy programming. Don’t have Costington’s? Just go buy a suit at the brown house.

    • I’m also always amused by how many characters one little brown house can hold! I picture one of those parties where there’s not enough room for anyone to move around.

  16. Unlocked him last Saturday April 27th. Finished off his questline with in a day, and after that been using him to collect intel. Been on Bonuts since Sunday and it’s pretty sweet as I average between 6 and 9 a day not including search for maggie every couple of days when I remember to do that search. LOL.
    Got everything crafted as well. It’s been a fun event. I liked it,
