Roverhaul Part 2!

Last month, Rover gained a cool new ability to dig up Jewel Shards while accompanying you on Jewel-capping sessions! We hinted that that was only the first part of Rover’s planned upgrades, so we’re excited to reveal the second part to you now!

Another Trick in Rover’s Toolkit!

When you feed Rover a Rover Treat, your capture radius for virtual scattered munzees* (i.e. Feathers, Gnome Hats, etc.) and Amethysts will be doubled or raised to a minimum of 500 ft for one capture! For example, if the munzee normally requires a capture radius of 300 ft, it will be doubled to 600 ft. And if the munzee normally requires a capture radius of 150 ft, it will be raised to the minimum of 500 ft.

At launch Rover will only help you capture the aforementioned types, however he may be trained to chase other types in the future.

You’ll only see the option to feed Rover a treat if you:

  1. Have a Rover with you AND
  2. Try to capture a virtual scattered munzee or Amethyst that is too far away

This flow should prevent you from wasting Rover Treats, and also ensure that the popup won’t be too disruptive during normal play!

Premium players will receive 1 Rover Treat during this launch! Otherwise, you can pick up Rover Treats in the In-App Store for 40 Zeds, or get a pack of 10 Rover Treats in the Freeze Tag Store for $3.

Rovers Now Available In-App!

If you checked out the In-App Store upon reading the previous paragraph, you most likely noticed another item sitting beside the Rover Treats — that’s right, Rovers are now available in the In-App Store!

As we continue to refine and improve the Munzee app, expect more Rover-related news!

Munzee on!

*Unfortunately, Charge Munzees (scatters that land on another munzee) and MOB scatters (scatters that come from munzees that land on another munzee) are excluded from this, but as stated above, this may change in the future!

Save The Cubimals From Their Physical Prisons!

Players, we need your help! Earlier in the month, when the Baby Animals traveled by ferry from WallaBee to Munzee, they brought some stowaways. Unbeknownst to staff, the stowaways crawled into some prototype storage containers before they were sealed. And while we were planning on bringing those stowaways into the game to celebrate the upcoming National Pet Day, we never intended for them to be trapped inside QRates, which are tough to open from the inside. Are you up to the task of freeing them?

QRates and QRowbars

If so, first, you’ll need to find a QRate. At this time, there is a chance they’ll be found while capturing Greenies. However, this is certainly subject to change in the future!

Once you’ve got a QRate, you can find it in the Inventory section of your Profile, as shown below:

So that this new task isn’t overwhelming, you’ll only be able to work on 1 QRate at a time, unless you are a Premium member — then you’ll get 1 extra slot! This limit may change in the future.

Premium members also have the option of trashing a QRate once a day. This should be helpful if you are trying to find a rarer QRate (more info on that below!) or if you want to quickly free up a slot should we have special limited-time QRates in the future.

To unlock the QRate, you’ll either need to capture or deploy more physical munzees. Updated info post launch: Capturing bouncers/scatters on some physical munzees including greenies will also fulfill requirements. You can speed up the process by applying a QRowbar to the QRate, which will reduce the requirements by 25%. You can apply up to 3 QRowbars to each QRate, bringing the total reduction to 75%!

Premium members will find that we’ve added 6 QRowbars to their accounts, and they’ll get 1 every month afterwards as long as their Premium membership is active! Non-premium players will find 3 QRowbars added to their accounts. If you need more QRowbars, they cost 50 Zeds each. You can buy them by tapping on the [Use QRowbar] button at the bottom if you don’t have any, or by heading to the In-App Store!

Once you’ve fulfilled the QRate’s requirements, you will receive the prize inside! You can expect to receive either a Cubimal (more info on that below!), Booster, or other Credits. There are currently 3 different types of QRates, with different prize pools for each. The standard QRate was shown earlier, so you can see what the other two look like below:

Like the standard QRate, the Gold and Diamond QRates can only potentially be found when capturing greenies for now.

Cubimals

These are the aforementioned stowaways! If you’re a WallaBee player, you may recognize these distinctly-shaped characters from the The Cubimal Racing League and Cubimals 2: Trophy Hunt sets.

Currently there are 9 different Cubimals trapped inside QRates for you to collect. Unfortunately, we’ve only confirmed the identities of 3 of them so far:

We suspect that the remaining 6 share the characteristic of being similar to real-life pets. Keep an eye out for future announcements — we’re sure that the other Cubimals will follow their lead and turn up in QRates later on!

You’ll find a record of the Cubimals you’ve saved in the Achievements area of the app! We thought this area made sense as they are a collection of sorts, much like their WallaBee counterparts.

It is possible to receive duplicates of Cubimals. You can see how many of each Cubimal you’ve rescued by tapping on it and scrolling to the bottom of the popup, as shown above.

If you’re into the physical game, we hope this new mechanic adds just the right amount of spice to what you already enjoy! Otherwise, if you are more of a virtual player, we hope you give QRate cracking a try and rescue some Cubimals in the process!

Munzee on!

NEW Filters Allow You To Explore Like Never Before!

With the myriad munzee types out there, using Filters is a must to make the most of your time. After all, one of our mottos is “Play your way”, and you may not be interested in ALL munzee types.

We also know that many of our players have multiple hobbies related to being outdoors. So, to make things even more convenient for you, we’ve started a NEW line of filters that should make it easier to engage in some of those hobbies at the same time as Munzee! There are only 2 to start, but keep an eye out for more filter announcements in the future!

The Metal Detector Mode filter will show the location of buried metal artifacts up to 8 ft deep. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the size of the artifact and your distance from it. A wrench buried at a depth of 2 ft will have a much more accurate location than a paper clip that is at a depth of 6 ft.

The Paranormal Mode filter will show the location of ghosts as they take on a corporeal form. Please note that this filter’s accuracy is dependent on the strength of the ghost’s spirit. Older ghosts tend to be weaker as they begin to forget their purpose for haunting the Earth.

You’ll find the Metal Detector Mode filter in the Physical tab, the Paranormal Mode filter in the Virtual tab, and both in the Premium tab, as you can see in the screenshots below:

We hope these colorful new filters enhance your app experience!

Munzee on!

Pop! Goes the Jack In Zee Box!

Do you enjoy toy-themed munzees, like our Christmas Combat specials? Have we got a game piece for you! While this toy does have a lot of things in common with the Christmas Combat specials (particularly the non-scattering ones), we actually looked to another toy — our past Magic 8 Ball specials — for inspiration!

Jack In Zee Box Details

The Jack In Zee Box is the first temporary POB (tPOB) available for purchase in the In-App Store! It will cost 750 Zeds, but we aren’t sure how long this jack will stay in the box. It may pop away by the 4th, the 14th or the 30th, so pick one up soon if you’re interested! They are limited to 1 per player.

Jack In Zee Box will bounce to both physical and virtual munzees. It will stay on the map until 23:59 MHQ on May 11 OR after 41 captures (whichever comes first) when it will be automatically archived on your account.

  • Deploy: 300 points
  • Capture: 200 points
  • CapOn: 100 points

Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, once the Jack In Zee Box is captured, 1 of 10 possible icons will be revealed. Curious as to what you’ll find inside? We’ll give you a sneak peek, but you’re going to have to get busy capping to discover the other 9 icons. This first one may be a familiar face for those who played in back in 2017!

Jack In Zee Boxes will bounce around every 6 hours or when capped to the following types:

The Jack In Zee Box will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture a Jack In Zee Box on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Jack In Zee Box visits you. However, Jack In Zee Boxes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to Magnets. You can access Jack In Zee Boxes under the “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

All players who purchase a Jack In Zee Box will receive the deploy badge shown below:

Silly Spring- Deploy one Jack In The Box Munzee.

There is also a badge line for overall captures of Jack In Zee Box munzees. However, since these badges reveal some of the other Jack In Zee Box heads, we’ll keep their appearance a secret for now.

We hope you enjoy this newest invention from the MHQ Workshop!

Munzee on!

For Your Mental Health, Take a Virtual Vacation!

Today is National Virtual Vacation Day, which is perhaps the most important holiday of all in these times. Maybe you’re a Hometown Hero who’s been required to go to work as usual this whole time (at great risk to your health), or maybe you’ve been fortunate to work from home but have been constantly on-call (to the detriment of your work-life balance). We ALL need a vacation, but for many of us, a staycation is the only option right now. So, to make your socially-distanced neighborhood walk a little more travel-themed, we have nearly a week of bonuses for you to enjoy!

Double Points Details

From the period of Tuesday, March 30th at 12:00 MHQ through Sunday, April 4th at 23:59 MHQ, enjoy double points on ALL Destination activity!

This includes points earned from rooms AND Destination Credits!

Store Sale!

For the same period as double points, Destinations will be available in the Freeze Tag Store at 20% off!

There are also some NEW Apparel designs so you can say “Mentally I’m here” without speaking a word!

We hope you make time to get your daily dose of sunshine and fresh air not only this week, but every week!

Munzee on!

March Garden Gnome Reminder + April Preview!

As the month comes to a close, we wanted to make sure you were heading into April with your desired Garden Gnomes! The skin for completing your March capture streak (and the corresponding badge) will be awarded in early April, but we couldn’t wait to share what’s in store!

March Garden Gnome Reminders

If you haven’t picked up a Garden Gnome yet, they are available in the Freeze Tag Store for $10.

Each month, the price of a Garden Gnome will decrease by $1. However, players can only purchase 1 Garden Gnome every 28 days.

If you’re planning to complete the capture streaks for each month (and made the initial purchase in January) you’ll have 12 different skins to choose from! So be sure to purchase one each month so you can have a complete bench of these athletic Garden Gnomes!

We also released special Reseller Garden Gnomes earlier in the month — if you’re interested, you can check out our blog post on them HERE!

April Garden Gnome Details

What Gnome Skin can you look forward to receiving in April? The highly motivated Running Garden Gnome! Like the other gnomes, the Running Garden Gnome is a temporary POB that will remain on the map until 23:59 MHQ on December 31.

As stated earlier, to earn this skin, you’ll need to have completed this month’s (March’s) capture streak. Once the skin is awarded in April, you can change the skin on the gnome to this one at any point — refer to our original blog post for the instructions!

Points

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 300

You can find these speedy sprinters traveling to the following landing pads every 6 hours or when captured:

Additionally, the Running Garden Gnome will scatter up to 3 NEW Gnome Headphones nearby when it is captured!

Like the other Gnome Hats, the Gnome Headphones will be visible to any player and will be deployed on the Gnome owner’s account. This means that unlike Feathers/Boulders, there are CapOn points for the owner! They expire after 120 minutes and have a capture radius of 300 feet. These hat scatters will NOT count for deploy streaks, ZeeOps, or clan activity since they are passive deploys.

The rewards for Gnome Hats are as follows:

  • Capture: 50 points
  • CapOn: 50 points

The Running Garden Gnome will be available for multi-capture. That means players can capture Running Garden Gnomes on their own munzees, any previously captured munzees, and more than once if the same Running Garden Gnome visits you. Running Garden Gnomes are non-blastable. They will be attracted to both Physical Magnets and Virtual Magnets. You can access Running Garden Gnomes by turning on your “All Limited Edition Specials” and “All Expiring Specials” filters.

Badges

As a reminder, Garden Gnomes have 4 associated badge lines:

  • Unique type deploy badges — you’ll need to earn each month’s skin by keeping your streak up!
  • Overall deploy badges — the more gnomes you deploy, the merrier!
  • Unique type capture badges — capture at least 1 of each skinned gnome!
  • Overall capture badges — capture as many gnomes as you can find!

While we revealed images for the first of each badge line in the original post, we are happy to show you the “Unique type deploy” and “Unique type capture” badges associated with the Running Garden Gnome:

We hope you don’t run out of breath while earning April’s Gnome Skin! Don’t forget to keep your streak up through April — you’ll need to in order to earn the May Gnome Skin!

Munzee on!

Forge Weapon Shards into Something Nameworthy!

After last month’s success with Jewel Shards and their spotlight this month during Jewel Day, we wanted to keep the momentum going and create another shard type! In our quest to create more flexible systems for our players so that they can play their way, we decided that Clan Weapons would be the next priority.

If you’re a new player, you may not have many Clan Weapons yet — but keep reading so that you’re prepared for the future! Otherwise, if you’re an experienced player, you may have an overstock of specific Clan Weapon Credits. You’ll be able to choose if you want to redeem some of your Clan Weapon Credits for Weapon Shards. If you do, you’ll be able to use those Weapon Shards to create new Clan Weapons of your choosing. For example, you may have tons of Maces stored up from past Clan War rewards and have no plans on using them. Now you have the option of breaking some of those Maces into Weapon Shards and using them to get The Hammer. The choice will be yours within the options given.

Don’t worry if you have any Clan Weapon Credits saved up — those will remain. Please also note that only Credits can be converted to Weapon Shards — meaning existing Crossbows and Catapults cannot be converted. However, you will be able to convert Weapon Shards to any of the 6 weapons. Moving forward, Clan Wars will award Weapon Shards instead of specific weapons. Of course, not all Weapons are created equal, so different amounts of Weapon Shards are required to convert to each Clan Weapon type.

You’ll find all the details and conversion rates at munzee.com/redeem. These rewards/rates may change from time to time, and the Trojan Unicorn may even be found. Remember it is archived at the end of each clan war, so choose your timing wisely!

While Weapon Shards are currently only available as trading elements online or Clan War rewards, who knows what the future holds? Perhaps you’ll be able to forge something new? Only time will tell!

Munzee on!

Secret ZeeOps- Operation: Green Thumb (March 2021)

Agents, did you get the hint from our social post last week? We have a new Secret ZeeOp available in the ZeeOps Hub! This means that Operation: ZEEcret Admirer will be removed soon. However, if you’ve already purchased Operation: ZEEcret Admirer, you will be able to complete it and collect rewards even after it is no longer available for purchase.

Can you track down the thief with an obscured whorl in his or her print? If you complete ALL the missions in Operation: Green Thumb, you’ll receive the snazzy badge below, along with the Golden L.A.S.E.R. Shark Munzee (more info below!) and various other rewards listed in the app!

There are 3 levels. Level 1 has 3 missions, Level 2 has 4 missions, and Level 3 has 5 missions. Each level ends with more prizes.

We may share this information moving forward with other Operations but possibly not.

Golden L.A.S.E.R. Shark Details

The Golden L.A.S.E.R. Shark functions the same way as the regular L.A.S.E.R. Shark. You can refer to our Help Guide article about it HERE!

The only difference, other than its color, is that it also lands on Premium munzees.

With the release of this L.A.S.E.R. Shark variant, we’ve also extended its corresponding badge line. You can sneak a peek at the new badges we’ve added below:

While you’ve probably guessed correctly about the requirements for the badge on the left (Deploy one Golden L.A.S.E.R. Shark Munzee), we’ll keep the requirements for the badge on the right a secret for now — just capture as many L.A.S.E.R. Sharks as you can!

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

This message will self destruct in 3… 2… 1…

Have a Gem of a Weekend with Double Points and More!

As March 13 is National Jewel Day, we thought it was the perfect excuse to put Jewels and Funfinity Stones in the spotlight! This year, on top of double points, we’ve got some special badges for you to earn and more! Read on to get the deets!

Double Points Details

From the period of Thursday, March 11th at 12:00 MHQ through Monday, March 15th at 12:00 MHQ, enjoy double points on ALL Jewel and Funfinity Stone activity!

This includes deploys of new Funfinity Stones, which leads us into the next topic…

Store Sale!

For the same period as double points, Funfinity Stones will be available in the Freeze Tag Store!

This is the perfect opportunity to pick up any that you missed last year, especially if you are looking to earn the Funfinity Bootlet badge!

Limited-Time Badges

For the same period as double points, you can earn a special badge for capturing a certain amount of Jewels, and another for deploying a certain amount of Jewels. If you need any jewels to deploy you can find them in the store or redeem your jewel shards!
You can see what these badges look like below!

We’ll keep the requirements a secret, but they shouldn’t be too hard to get! Please note that these badges will only require Jewel activity, NOT Funfinity Stone activity.

Rover Learned a New Trick!

Perhaps you’ve guessed what it is from the badge image above? Now, when you capture a Jewel while a Rover is with you, you have a small chance of receiving Jewel Shards! This includes Jewels captured using Blasts!

The popup that appears after you’ve captured a Jewel will let you know if Rover has dug up any, so make sure to keep an eye out! You will also find them on your credits list.

If you don’t have a Rover with you and there aren’t any nearby for you to pick up, you can purchase one from the store HERE! To learn more about how Rover works visit our Help Guide article HERE!

We hope you enjoy going on a treasure hunt with an old pal! We’re considering this the first step in our long-awaited Roverhaul.

Munzee on!
