BW2 Supports Heart and Stroke Research 
Tags: bw2, charity.


Hi Whackers!

Heart disease is one of the top three leading causes of death in Canada and many other countries around the world, but we can make a difference! Talk to Doctor Orible in the Commons to do 3 quests, and buy the Hearty Pet Pack for only $10 to help out the Heart and Stroke Foundation!

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada (HSFC) supports Canadian research, works closely with the American Heart Association and the World Heart Federation on an international level. Heart disease and strokes affect many people and the research that HSFC supports helps reduce the risk of it happening and aids in getting people who suffer from it cured.

To learn more about the Heart and Stroke Foundation, click here.

The sale runs until Friday July 31st at Noon PDT.

Talk about it on the forums!

Summer Carnival Fun in BW2 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Summer Carnival Event 2015

The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!

The Carnival Games:

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games in your favour! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

New for 2015
The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....

Keep an eye out for a new addition to the event zone later on, that's a splashing good time!

Event Achievements- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!

There are up to 13 possible achievements that can be picked up during the Summer Carnival 2015 event, dependent on your game history.

Achievements Returning in 2015:
Step Right Up - Win a Prize Token gaming at the Carnival!
We have a Winner - Win 8 Prize Tokens at once at the Carnival.
Carnival Ace - Win 8 Prize Tokens at all 4 Carnival Games.
Gotta Try 'Em All! - Play all four games offered at the Carnival!
Big Time Bonus Buyer - Purchase 10 Bonus Prize Packs from the Carnival!
Sweet Tooth - Help William satisfy his Sweet Tooth. Or not.
Nostalgic Whacker - Repair the teleporter and fulfill your duty…

Added/Changed for 2015
Carni-Value! - Purchase all the 2015 Carnival Event items.*
Dunk-a-Thon! - Dunk all eight unique Carnival Event dunk-ees!

* The Carnival Mini Golf piece is NOT included in the Carni-Value! achievement, and therefore it is not required to purchase it.

We have 4 achievements from previous years, which may be earnable by spending some Bush Bucks, if a player was not present during the initial year:

Party at My Place - Buy all 6 house items from the 2012 Carnival!

Summer Season and Mount Updates! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.


Hi Whackers!

Have we got some exciting changes for you today!

Summer Season at the Theatre!

The Outdoor Theatre is now presenting FOUR all-new plays based on popular summer films! Check them out starting today! Plus, there are a couple new achievements related to this change! But watch them before they're gone! The plays will be viewable until September 30 at 11:59 PM PDT, when the summer season ends!

Going forward, the Summer Season will run from June 1st through September 30th every year!

Mount Updates!

Number 1: now you can rename your mounts! Talk to Clint in the Commons to change the name of your currently equipped mount.

Number 2: A dozen new achievements and five new titles relating to mounts!

Number 3: Mounts will only have EIGHT bonuses including the starting buffs.

What does this mean?

New mounts:
Your mount will have the Speed Bonus, its random 5% starting buff, and once it has 6 other random buffs, the starting buff and those 6 will be the ones that will level up with each new level.

Old Mounts:
For all those mounts you currently have more than 8 buffs on, the lowest magnitude buffs will be randomly removed and their bonuses distributed among the buffs that can level up until the mount only has 8 buffs.

As well, your potential next level up bonuses may change based on your new buffs because next level buffs will only include existing buffs.

Note: Because of this change, using Pristine Feed for a buff that isn't one of your 7 may waste that feed.

PAGAs Rewards for Over 100 Pets!

There a lot of pets in the game, so we've added more rewards to PAGAs for unique pets.

120 Pets: Get Unique DNA x4!!!
140 Pets: The Cloud Bird pet from Cloudland!!!
160 Pets: A Pet Controller Trinket!!!**
180 Pets: Unique DNA x5!!!
200 Pets: Level 40 Pet Treat x 5!!!

**The Pet Controller trinket turns you into your pet when you equip it! Become a Canada Goose riding an Eagle! Or a Robot on an Elephant! Or just your favourite pet ever going around whacking bushes!


Plus we've done a whole host of housekeeping updates here.

Celebrate the season on the forums!
