Munzee 4.0 Is Finally HERE! New Features and Updates Explained!

We know that you have all been patiently waiting for the new and improved 4.0 version of the Munzee app, and we are happy to announce that it has finally arrived! That’s right, the wait is over.

You can download the iOS version of the new app HERE!

You can download the Android version of the new app HERE!

This is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version 3 of the Munzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. Please remember that the app may take some time to propagate, so if you don’t see it in the App or Google Play Store, just give it some time. We will be keeping version 3 of the app active temporarily, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future, so just go ahead and download 4.0 today!

But before you jump into the newly updated game, complete with brand new features, allow us to break down some of our favorite things about 4.0!

The latest version of everyone’s favorite game is a foundation for us to build upon. We consider it a vision for the future, with additional tools being added regularly as we move forward. Due to limitations from version 3, we’ve had to delay some awesome features in the past, but this will limit us no more! We have some big ideas ahead, but for now let’s take a look at what 4.0 has to offer!

Main Feature Updates

  • New and improved map loading speed.
  • New square pins for Physical Munzees and round pins for Virtual Munzees.
  • Updated artwork to include all types in pin form to more precisely show the location of the munzee.
  • New interactive walkthrough tutorial hosted by our buddy the newly energized Rover.
  • Reorganization of filters into categories, making them easier to sort through.
  • Players can now combine multiple premium filters at a time.
  • Larger, cleaner font throughout the game.
  • Improved compass that more clearly indicates the Northern point.
  • Improved follow feature to keep player marker centered on the map.
  • New in-app announcements system that will deliver news directly to the players.

Additional Updates

  • The Munzee capture button at the bottom changes between square and round depending on the type selected on the map so you always know which type you’re looking for.
  • Pouch Creatures and Evolution Munzees now include stage numbers.
  • New “All Alternamyths” and “All Places” premium filters.
  • Filters are now applied immediately. Players do not need to save each time they choose filters.
  • Players can now see what filters they have set for each preset, making it easier to edit and make changes.
  • Magnet and Special timers now show down to the minutes/seconds.
  • Added a new “Inventory” section to the profile, making it more clear to new players what they have available to deploy.
  • Players can now quickly tap to capture from the List view using the new green arrow buttons, instead of sliding the entry in the list then tapping to cap.
  • Tapping on badge notifications in the activity feed now takes you to that specific badge in your collection. 
  • Added countdown timer to the leaderboards for when it will reset in MHQ time.

Share with Friends

We know that playing Munzee can be a bit overwhelming to new players, but many of our most diehard fans appreciate the complexity and pride that comes with mastering this multi-layered game. Luckily with our new in-app tutorial for new players, it’s easier than ever to introduce new players to Munzee. That’s why we’re asking our players to share 4.0 with their friends and family! 

As a limited time extension to our current Munzee Referral Program, we will host a referral contest starting next week! Help us share the new app and Grow the Game for a chance to earn a limited edition badge, prizes, and more! We’ll have more information next week, but this contest will not be retroactive, and it will only run from February 1 through 28.

While you’re waiting for those details, though, head over to the Freeze Tag Online Store and download a free Custom Referral Card. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to introduce new players to the game and get rewarded for it. The Custom Referral Card will contain your personal Referral code to share with new players. The more shares, the more rewards!

We will also be running several sales tomorrow in celebration of the 4.0 update release! There will be a separate blog post detailing those sales today at 12:00 MHQ, and all sales will begin at 12:15 MHQ.

We know this is long overdue, but we can’t explain enough how many possibilities this opens for the future. The whole team has worked so hard for this release, and we’re ready to keep the momentum moving forward! Thank you to the beta testers for their support (and constructive criticisms) throughout this process. This app would not be what it is today if it wasn’t for them.

Lastly we’d like to give a BIG thank you to all of our players for all of your patience. Thank you for the feedback! Thank you for helping us build the map! Thank you to the many who devote daily dedication to playing Munzee! We wouldn’t be here without you!

So go check out 4.0! Happy Hunting, and Munzee On!

Begin your Adventure with Trail Munzee Badges!

One of the best parts about Munzee is the opportunity to explore new places, so we decided to drop nine new badges for activity on Trail Munzees. These badges will drop today (1/29) at 10:00 MHQ. That means if you’re reading this, you have the opportunity to earn them!

As many of you know, the Trail Munzees are deployed in a path that leads other players to a place worth seeing. These munzees can form a tour to one of your favorite local hangs, or lead others to a site that makes your town unique. As long as they get you out of the house and exploring, the Trail Munzees are doing their job!

Overall there with be nine new Trail Munzee badges being released today. These badges will be retroactive. There will be 3 badges for capturing Trail Munzees, 3 badges for deploying Trail Munzees, and 3 badges for completing entire Trails.

All Trail Munzee types will count towards these badges:

  • Trail Munzees
  • Virtual Trail Munzees
  • Event Trail Munzees

We won’t spoil the requirements for all of the badges, but here’s a sneak peak of the first in each line!

Gatherer- Capture 10 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Wayfinder- Deploy 5 Trail Munzees of any type. 

Daytripper- Capture every stop on a single Trail of any type.

Help create new opportunities in your neighborhood by deploying Trail Munzees! Stop by the Freeze Tag Online Store and purchase physical credits, which you can use to convert regular greenies into Trail stops. Or you can purchase Virtual credits individually; you will receive a Virtual Trail credit and a Virtual Munzee with each purchase.

The physical Trail tags (either metal or plastic tree tags) are hardcoded with Trail munzees, so you don’t need basic greenies. Click here to see the entire Trail Munzee collection.

Don’t forget to let us know when you earn new badges! Connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to let us know how you’re doing. Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Roll a STRIKE with new Bowling Ball Capture Badges!

You alleycats ready to hit the lanes? We’ve got three new sets of badges for capturing Bowling Ball Munzees! Remember, Bowling Ball Munzees are a Gaming Line item based on ten-pin bowling. In the mini game you earn points based on how many “pins” you knock down as well as earning STRIKES and/or SPARES.

There are badges for overall captures, number of strikes, and number of spares, with three badges for each line. These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so your past rolls will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn!

Per usual we won’t show you every badge, but enough to get you rolling:

Let’s Go Bowling: Capture 1 Bowling Ball Munzee

Lane Laborers: Earn a Strike on a Bowling Ball Munzee

Lane Locks: Earn a Spare on a Bowling Ball Munzee

Help out your fellow players by deploying Bowling Ball stickers as well! For a limited time you can purchase 10 Bowling Ball Munzees for $20 (regularly $25) in the Freeze Tag Online Store. They are stickers not tied to any account, so you can share with friends!

You can also pick up other gaming munzees on sale too! For a limited time you can purchase Prize Wheel Credits for $4.50 (normally $5) and Rock Paper Scissors Credits for $1.25 (normally $1.50)! You can check out the entire Gaming Munzee Collection here: https://store.freezetag.com/collections/gaming-munzees. Prize wheel credits have not been available for purchase in quite a long time so now is your chance to stock up.

These items will remain on sale until Monday at 10:00 am MHQ time, so get rolling!

Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Bowling Ball Munzee Details

As promised, we have the details for the ALL NEW Bowling Ball Munzee! This new addition to the Gaming Line of Munzees (RPS and Prize Wheels) is sure to knock a few pins loose on Cyber Munzday! The Bowling Ball point system is based on ten-pin bowling and you will have a chance to earn a maximum of 55 points based on how many “pins” you “knock down.”

BASIC GAMEPLAY:

Bowling Ball Munzee:
When you capture a Bowling Ball you will earn 25 points to start. The Bowling Ball Munzee will then initiate a sort of real world mini-game for more points. When a player captures a Bowling Ball Munzee a new Munzee called “1st Roll” will be scattered to a Greenie within 750 ft. Similar to a Trail Munzee, the second stage (1st Roll) will not be seen until stage one (Bowling Ball) is captured. This new pin will only be available to the player that captured the original Bowling Ball.

1st Roll Munzee:
When the player captures the 1st Roll Munzee, they will either earn a STRIKE and earn 30 points, or they will earn between a 1-9 points (one for each pin they “knock” down) and 2nd Roll will be scattered to a Greenie nearby. If you earn a STRIKE and the full 30 points, the game is done and you have received the maximum amount of points.

2nd Roll Munzee:
When the player captures the 2nd Roll Munzee, they will either earn a SPARE and earn 10 points, or they will earn between 1-8 points. The mini game will then be done either way.

POINT BREAKDOWN:

Bowling Ball Munzee

  • Deploy: 50 points
  • Capture: 25 points
  • CapOn: 20 points

1st Roll Munzee

STRIKE!

  • Capture: 30 points
  • CapOn: 20 points

-or-

SO CLOSE!

  • Capture: 1-9 points
  • CapOn: 5 points

2nd Roll Munzee

SPARE!

  • Capture: 10 points
  • CapOn: 10 points

-or-

GAME OVER!

  • Capture: 1-8 points
  • CapOn: 5 points

All three Bowling types will be Physical Munzees and the Bowling Ball Munzee will be sold as a pre-coded sticker on Cyber Munzday. These have a standard deploy radius and players will be able to capture the 1st Roll and 2nd Roll scatters on their own munzees. The scattered munzees will remain active for 100 minutes or until captured.

We’re still working on a line of Capture Badges for the Bowling Munzees, but you will earn a badge for deploying one.

Bowling League- Deploy one Bowling Ball Munzee

As a reminder, Bowling Ball Munzees will come in sheets of 10 for $15 ($1.50 each) on Cyber Munzday, but will normally be $25 ($2.50 each). We can’t wait to play a few frames with you all very soon.

Line up your shot and Munzee on!
