This is the two week mark. Do you have an updated ETA for us? Any insight on the update content?

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Pick random friends?

Does anyone actually use that button?

I would really prefer it be changed to pick 50 most recently logged in friends.

Anyone agree?

It has been a while since an update or even a response in the forum. Did nooze move on to the next project?

I bought the sack about 5 times and came back the next day and found 25 candy canes. As far as I can tell, the Sack doesn’t work.

Topic: RobotPet / Current (only) build

Sniper Rifle let’s me idle on the highest possible levels. I die a lot more often when I switch to a comparable shotgun.

I haven’t even seen Ford chassis since level 63.

I don’t understand how you could idle with a sniper rifle. Regardless of the weapon, the bot rushes into close range with the enemies. My gold level 119 sniper rifle offers 807k DPS and my gold level 116 shotgun gives 1.04m DPS. Since I am firing both from point blank I don’t tend to miss so the DPS makes all the difference. Am I missing something?

Topic: RobotPet / Shooting Distance USELESS. Please fix!

Originally posted by temporary:

Funny, I find the sniper rifle does the best for me. I’ve tried swapping between it (About 300 range and 12m damage) and a shotgun (100 range, 20m damage) and die more often with a shotgun on complete autopilot. There’s a lot of time approaching other bots and chasing healing buffs that my bot is basically kiting. I assume this is why I do much better with my rifle than the shotgun.

Next time you play using the sniper rifle, see how low you can make your movement speed. That may actually help a lot in keeping you outside the enemy’s firing range but inside your own.

Topic: RobotPet / Current (only) build

I keep the golds that are best at each level and have noticed a trend.

I only keep these types:

Shield: ‘lime’
Droid: attack
Weapon: shotgun
Chassis: traktor

Anything else just doesn’t seem to matter. Have you found anything different?

Topic: RobotPet / Shooting Distance USELESS. Please fix!

Actually the easiest fix would probably be very quick to make. Currently the robot approaches the target to a certain distance and then stops. Once the target moves away to that same certain distance it slowly follows, keeping the target at that distance. If instead of that distance being a static number it was 90% of the robot’s current shooting distance it would be able to take advantage of the shooting distance much more effectively.

Precisely. The bot needs to actually consider shooting distance.

It is as if you and I are going to fight. I have a pistol and you have an axe and I run straight up to you so I can try to shoot you point blank. I would like the “AI” to recognize and use the advantage at least a little bit.

Also idle means idle. Change settings, change equipment but you shouldn’t have to spam “stay here in this corner” Those are clicking games, not idle games. Everyone recognizes that you’ll get further playing manually, but levels that I can easily win idle, I often lose because the stupid little bot feels as if it needs to squeeze in between three enemies instead of staying more safely away.

Topic: RobotPet / Health vs Defence

So, if I am understanding this correctly, the Defence is the percentage of damage that it blocks.

So, if I have:
A. 100,000 Health and 20 Defence, it would take 125,000 to kill me.
B. 120,000 Health and 18 Defence, it would take 146,341 to kill me.

Option A is better even though it has a lower health, correct?

Topic: RobotPet / Health vs Defence

I have a hard time deciding between Health and Defence. Often a new item will give me -20% Health and +20% Defence and I don’t know which one is better. I sometimes do math in my head like this.

Item 1: 100,000 Health 20 Defence
Item 2: 120,000 Health 18 Defence
Item 1: 2,000,000 vs Item 2: 2,160,000
So Item 2 would be better if you could do the math that way, but I have no idea if you can.

So what is the difference and which is more valuable?

Topic: RobotPet / Shooting Distance USELESS. Please fix!

I want to lend my support to this comment. The bot tends to try to get directly underneath the enemy. If it could stay 90% of its shot distance away from the enemy while firing it would work out a lot better.

Shot distance is definitely important because it is good to get off a few rounds before the enemy can, before you crawl under them.

Was the item drop rate reduced? I’ve gone levels and levels in the regular mode and haven’t received a single thing.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / FAQ: Pet Adoption and Genetic Augmentation Society (PAGAS)

Will there be the ability to trade up to Unique DNA?

At this point I can only see how you can purchase it with Bush Bucks. If I wanted a pet that needs 2 Unique DNA, it would cost about $50. That seems absolutely crazy to me.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Flux puzzle change needed

Have mercy. These puzzles are just getting crazy.

Either stop increasing the number of pieces.
or
Make the pieces click into place when they’re further away from where they belong.

They just take way too long and the pieces are much too small. I love doing the in game puzzles, but the flux, seeing as you do it at least 8 times are just a painful grind.

Please do something to help us from getting burned out.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / New zone coming soon?!?

It has been almost three months since the last zone update. I have enjoyed the detective quests, but they only take about two days. The building quests are slightly less interesting as they tend to be five days of gathering the same stuff. The holiday events are fun, but they have been pretty much the exact same as last year. I am tired of the tiny pieces in the flux so I’ve stopped doing that. I have done every quest 100 times, so I’ve stopped those. I have no need for energy, so I’ve stopped farming. I am pretty sure I’ve fished up every item. I need a new zone.

Any indication of when/if another is coming out?

And what is up with Bushwhacker 2 mobile? It is on the Kong app, but doesn’t work.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Egg hunting has changed (?)

I got my egg. It took 86 friend whacks and my entire crop of melons as well as about half of my energy packs. I am having a hard time believing that nothing has changed.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Egg hunting has changed (?)

Well, it is egg time again and I am in the flux. After whacking 600 bushes, I still haven’t found an egg.

That comes to 9000 energy spent with no egg. I must be the unluckiest bushwhacker in history.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Egg hunting has changed (?)

It used to be easy to find a pet egg. It doesn’t appear to be that easy anymore.

I just spent 3700 energy and didn’t get an egg yet.

My guess is that it is harder to find a pet based on how many pets you already have. So if you have two pets, the third will be very easy. If you have 30 pets, it will take forever to find an egg.

If that is the case, I’d like to be able to release some of my pets back into the wild.

So, did the egg finding odds change?

Can I let some pets go, much like I can delete friends?

It looks like the new baits won’t catch the quest shopping bags. Is that intentional?

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / How many days have I played?!?

When I logged in this morning, I appear to have played for 199 days in a row.

When I looked at my achievements, I have only appeared to have played for 188 unique days.

So, which is it? And maybe why the discrepancy as well.

Thanks.

Topic: Bush Whacker 2 / Feedback and Bug Reports

I like everyone appreciate the new drop inactive friends feature. There appears to be an issue though. I have removed a TON of inactive friends. I checked my friend list where you can remove them and compared that to the people I can make energy requests of and the lists aren’t even similar. My only guess at this point is that I’ve removed them from one and not the other.

I have refreshed my friends and have reloaded the page, but it hasn’t seemed to make a difference.

What am I doing wrong, or is this a bug?

Sounds good, but please consider doing the same for The Sickened Stream. That is where I am missing three after finishing the rest of the zone.
