Tips and Tricks

Below we’ve put together a few pointers to help you out with some of the hidden or trickier challenges this week.

Stage Challenges

There’s one “Stage” based challenge which requires 3 stages completed in order to tick off the challenge as a whole. Below we’ve broken them down into each component so you’re ready for whatever’s next.

Gain shields from Mushrooms...

  • Stage 1: Gain 50 shields from Mushrooms.
  • Stage 2: Gain 100 shields from Small Shield.
  • Stage 3: Gain 100 shields from Shield Potions.

Pirate Camp locations

For a complete overview of all the Pirate Camp locations, head on over to our Season 8 Week 1 guide as it has a map which shows you exactly where to find them all.

Race Track in Happy Hamlet

The racetrack can be found to the north west of Happy Hamlet and you’ll need to hop into a Baller to complete this challenge.

Below we’ve linked a video to HarryNinetyFour showing you how it’s done:

Bouncy Ball Challenge

First off, you'll need to reach tier 26 to unlock the Bouncy Ball Toy. Once you've done so, equip it in your inventory so you've got it at the ready.

Next, simply go about building a box structure around yourself. Next, chuck the ball at one of the walls and watch as it bounces all over the place - done!

Again, here's HarryNinetyFour doing the honours:
