Can you believe there was a time when all you could use your Cogs on were Spyderbots? With the increasing popularity of Daily ZeeOps, we’ve tried to design new tPOBs to keep the map more varied and fun for everyone! This month, we’ve released new Mechz in the MunzPak and the V-Mailbox, but what if you just want a new Mech without all of the extras? We’ve got two Valentine-themed options for you… Please welcome X Bot and O Bot!
NEW Mech Details
X Bots and O Bots are temporary POBs that will remain on the map until they have been captured 5 times. The X Bot is available at the Freeze Tag Store HERE. The O Bot will be available in the In-App Store! When you purchase a X Bot or O Bot, you will receive a fully-built X Bot or O Bot that auto-deploys. You will also receive the Blueprint to rebuild it when you have earned enough Cogs in the future. These Mechs will be available to purchase until 23:59 MHQ on Monday, February 28th.
- Deploy: 500
- Capture: 250
- CapOn: 100
- Xhaust (5th Cap): 500
You can find these alphabetical androids making their mark at the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:
X Bots and O Bots will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture X Bots and O Bots on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same X Bot or O Bot visits you. X Bots and O Bots are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access X Bots and O Bots by turning on your “All Expiring Specials” filter.
When an X Bot is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Heart ThRobots. Similarly, when an O Bot is captured, it will scatter up to 3 Rouge Bots.
These will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the X Bot or O Bot owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn rewards for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes, have a capture radius of 300 feet, and you’ll be able to use Rover Treats to capture them as well. These scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.
The rewards for Heart ThRobots and Rouge Bots are as follows:
- Capture: 50 points
- CapOn: 25 points
Deploying an X Bot or an O Bot will earn you the corresponding Blueprint badge. You can see these badges below.
There is also a line of badges that you can earn for X Bot and O Bot captures! You can see the first badge in this line below.
X Bot Blueprints- Deploy one X Bot Munzee.
O Bot Blueprints- Deploy one O Bot Munzee.
Cat’s Game!- Capture one X Bot and one O Bot Munzee.
Lastly, we’ve also created NEW badge lines for overall Mech captures and deploys. You can see the first badges in these lines below:
Cybernetic Crater- Capture 1,000 Munzee Mechz.
Steel Structure- Deploy 100 Munzee Mechz.
As these badge lines are retroactive, you may have already met the requirements for some of the badges, and should see them on your account soon! If not, please wait a few days as our system catches up with awarding these new badges to everyone who has earned them, before contacting support.
We hope you show some love to these new mechz!
