Magnetus Joins Munzee As the Latest Pouch Creature!
This pet with an unusual proboscis may be a pest to Santa and his elves, but only due to the sheer numbers! The magnetic force emanating from the Magnetus’s bill is so strong that they are often found stuck on the most inconvenient metal surfaces, i.e. the communal fridge, various power tools, and especially Santa’s sleigh — sometimes the reindeer aren’t able to take off due to the weight of all the attached Magnetus! To help reduce Magnetus numbers in the North Pole, the latest Pouch Creature is on sale NOW and through the weekend in the Freeze Tag Online Store!
That’s right, that means you won’t have to set your timers for odd hours in order to guarantee a Magnetus purchase! You can pick up your Magnetus Pouch Creature for $15. Magnetus will be joining the ranks of Mitmegu, Tuli, Vesi, Muru, and Hadavale as the latest Munzee Pouch Creature. Pouch Creatures are based on items from our sister app, WallaBee, and represent a new era of munzees to enjoy! We also have a limited number of other Pouch Creature Munzees available in the FT store as well! Check out the entire Pouch Creatures Collection to get the whole set!
Like the Pimedus we introduced earlier in the year, the Magnetus will operate similarly to a Prize Wheel, randomly offering different prizes for cappers and owners! You can earn points, magnets, maybe even the high point earning Virtual Deploy Booster Credit?!?! That means you never know what prize you’ll be getting! Unlike the Pimedus, the Magnetus is a benign being. It will always reward you with points, but the amount will be reduced if you receive an additional prize!
- Deploy: 250 points
- Capture: Will vary from the following options:
- 150 – 200 points
- 100 points and a Prize
The possible prizes Magnetus will attract may change at any given time, but it will always be something fun! While the capper of Magnetus will receive one of the listed prize options, each Magnetus owner will ALSO have the chance to earn a random prize for each CapOn! This magnetic platypus will draw the nearest metal object, so you never know what you’ll receive! The prize options at launch for CapOn will appear as follows:
- 100 points
- 100 points and a Prize
Has the Pimedus met its match? You can find Magnetus hanging out on the following landing pads:

However, you can also unlock the following landing pads with a Bouncer Upgrade Credit for an additional $5, from the Freeze Tag Online Store. These additional landing pads include:
- Water Mystery Munzees

- Joystick Virtual Munzees
- VIRTUAL YELLOW MUNZEES
- VIRTUAL GOLDENROD MUNZEES
- VIRTUAL DANDELION MUNZEES
When the Bouncer Upgrade credit is used, your Magnetus will also have the ability to be “nudged” to a new munzee. You can use the nudge feature up to three times a day (MHQ 24-hour day), but only after your munzee has sat for at least 3 hours. Additionally, the Bouncer Upgrade will also allow you to rename your Magnetus! The name will still retain the unique number, but feel free to get creative and customize your Pouch Creature’s moniker. Please keep in mind our player code of conduct, and be mindful of maintaining a family friendly environment!
Magnetus will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Magnetus on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Magnetus visits you. However, Magnetus will be non-blastable. This Pouch Creature will be attracted to Physical Magnets on Greenies and Virtual Magnets on Red- and Blue-toned Virtual Munzees. You can access Magnetus under the “Only Expiring Specials” and “Only Pouch Creatures” filters.
Magnetus captures will count toward the overall Pouch Creature capture badges. Additionally all players who purchase a Magnetus will receive the following deploy badge:
There are also three more badges to unlock based on number of Magnetus captures. The first in the series will appear as follows:
Magnetus will be available for sale exclusively from the Freeze Tag Online Store from today until 12:00 MHQ time on Monday, December 23. With its many perks, this Pouch Creature proves it is capable of more than sticking to Santa’s sleigh!
