I have a little over $50M saved up and I'm stuck on the level 18 boss.

I'm not gonna use gold...ever. So my question is should I just leave it as is or invest in napalms/sarins and try to take that beast down?

Here is what my current explosives are + the Loaded Dice.

Attack is 72914

I mean I don't know how far 50m in explosives will take me, beat level 18 or get stuck at 19.

Buy the Napalms. If you have 500 mafia, you only need 415 Napalms to be fully equipped. That will cost you $26,560,000. At your IPH, that will be painful, but since they are attack explosives and are non-consumable against bosses, you won't lose them very quickly after the initial purchase.

My IPH is at 1M now, I can't edit my sig that's old news.

Even if you get stuck on level 19, you will get a prize for level 18, which could be something very good. And even if you don't get through this boos event, it's not like you have nothing to show for it; you still have 415 napalms. You really aren't out anything, you're making a purchase you'll eventually do a little earlier in the game.

Meh true. It's cause I Actually never bought any explosives other than the first week they came out and that was it. So I don't know if they are productive or not but regardless; I'll give the napalms a shot.

Hi
At level 19 should I use 19 attempt, my attack is 53300 so that means I used about 1000000 in attack to beat him.
I used 20 gold, 13 attack for free and 6 attack for gold.
So I think u should have about 77.000 in attack to beat him at level 19 without spend gold

Ghost- that's what I am doing right now too. You could also use a level-up to give you five more attacks and be able to beat one or two more bosses.

Ok sorry about that. Menu. Equipment. Explosives. Keep scrolling until you find the missle that costs 64k.

With your income definitely invest in explosives. However, you will need gold to get to 30.

The strength of the boss is level dependent and most likely mafia bracket as well.

I used 40 gold so far to finish 26th at level 71.

However, lower level players have been able to do it with cash option only.

Good luck.

Not level dependent, I think the boss strength is determined by your stats at the start of the event. I think. No way I'd be fighting the same bosses as 150k attack players and still be on 17.

Not sure that either of your theories make sense. If the boss strength is determined by the bosses strength at the start; then how does that explain lower level players reaching higher levels? I interpreted your comment as it would imply that if the boss strength is determined beforehand it would be normalized. I.e. whatever your strength every person reaches level ## because it is the baseline. I believe people with lower stats at lower levels don't go as far as the camper accounts with much higher stats.

I also can't agree with emcee because there are no numbers to support his statement, but it seems probable. I asked people to post their data to try and come up with an actual theory, but no one bit. I am sure if we pooled data it would be evident that there is some way to calculate the boss damage. I have some data that shows a possible trend but its worthless without a comparison. Also I started recording it to late and it contains some assumptions.

I think boss strength is determined by your stats at the start of the boss fight. When you're stronger, the boss will be stronger.

If determined at the start of the events, they need to store data somewhere, the easier way (not store data either) is getting player stats when the boss is triggered.

Ghost,

IMO - it's worth a shot. In game money comes easily - so, if you do it, you won't regret it or have the "what if" factor.

It seems like I'm missing a lot of stuff in the store. Under explosives, the most expensive explosive I see is $15000 and I need to be level 36 to buy it (I'm level 13 and a heavy camper)

Sarins does not open up until level 145.

Once you level up the store will start to show more items.

It's the hours and minutes on the event, when the Boss shows up you have 2 hrs to beat him. So attack him 3 times, wait a minute and then attack him another 2 times. Then wait 26 minutes and attack another 2 times, and then you keep attacking 2 times every 26 minutes until you beat him or run out of time.

That list just shows the exact minute and hour that he was attacking a boss

Yeah I got it bro, I took a look at Billionaires thread and noticed he explained his method there. I made it till level 20 and killed him with the 13th hit. Not sure if I could do 21 and idc as of today I'm going to 6 flags magic mountain :D

Yeah billionaire made a good thread about the event. I was only able to beat 18 so far I dont think I'm beating anymore though.

6 flags sounds a lot better than working on this event anyways lol

Well... I've done as much modding as I can before I start to buy the spendy electronic upgrades. Airbox, weight reduction, exhaust, all done. Just waiting on a set of velocity stacks and a new headlight before I put it all back together.

I'm sooooo annoyed. I was getting close to another level up but figured I'd be safe to do another 2 hits where I'm farming explosives without pushing me over the edge. Unfortunately, I got the delivery drop which pushed me into completion of the "Godly" goal, which gave me more XP and pushed me over my level up line which I was planning to use during a new attempt at the epic boss fight! (sorry bat the run on sentence - I'm watching Golden Girls while I type this.) When I saw my opportunity was pooched, I hit the tropical fruit stand some more with my new replenished energy and got 3 more drops in a row. This has been my best farming attempt so far. 27 drops in around 5 days. :)

Lvl 30 used maximum number of attacks and with my current attack I can't beat the level 14 Eddie Sato. Of course that's using the cash option and only 2 weeks into game.
