Spring Garden Event 2016! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Garden Like Busy Bees!

The FIFTH annual Grow-A-Thon has returned to the Commons! Whack the bushes and gather their bounty so that you can plant flowers and trees in the Event area to make yourself a gorgeous garden. Impress the judges every 20 hours to earn Spring tokens to buy this year’s Custom Items. You need to impress the previous judge to get a rating from the next one.

Plus, fill your magnificent garden with critters! There are 5 to get throughout the event, starting with the Squirrel today! On platforms with friends, you can send out requests for a free one. On platforms without, you get a free one when the animal unlocks from the animal vendor! The tool-tip when you hover the critter in the store has their unlock date!

Also returning is the Gorgeous Garden contest! Check back next week for more details!

George has such a terrible green thumb, he’ll be looking for you to help him out trying to grow a plant for the first (or third) time.

Spring usually means spring cleaning, right? Freddy needs some help cleaning up his house. It’s gotten a little bit spooky. Cleaning items can only be whacked in his house.

Timmy wants to wake his turtle up from its hibernation after that long, cold winter. Aid him in finding things to tempt it back to consciousness.

New for 2016:

This year's event contains 6 new colours of violets for your awesome pixel art, as well as a flower to grow for a mini bonus!

We've added 10 new Quests!

Help the bees by building them a new home! As well, each Judge will have a request for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How can I find the seeds?
    Just keep whacking. The Holiday Item runes and pets will help attract them as well.

  • How do I grow plants?
    There are the planters outside the garden to grow flowers in. If you click on them, you can see the plant store. Each plant has a different cost and grow time to get you your event progress points. You start with 4 free planters.

  • Is it good to buy extra planters for growing the plants?
    If you have the seeds to spare and prefer to plant long-growing plants, then yes, it’s worth it.

  • How do I get the Decorator achievement?
    If you go into the gardening area, the store button ($) has a selection of garden decorating items, where you can find the planter styles and watering can. These items also cost seeds.

  • What are the possible seed combinations for Farmer MacDonald’s quest?
    You can choose seeds that grow either Energy or Gold, and then choose between 20, 15, 4, and 3 hours of growth time.

  • Why do my custom seeds cost Gold to plant?
    You created the combination, which is unlocked until they expire. Just like normal plants, they cost Gold for planting. We don't award a flat number of seeds, because not all players have the same amount of farm plots. This way, you get to choose how many you end up growing. :)
  • Why don’t my custom seeds last longer?
    Because they're OP! Enjoy them while they last. :)

  • How do I please the judges?
    Just keep growing plants. As your event progress increases, you will impress the judges more and more. You DO NOT need to place them in your garden if you don't wish to. The plants still count for progress.

  • Does the Timey-Wimey watch or Time Turner affect the judges?
    No, judges do not have quest cooldowns, so trinket effects that work for quests will not apply to them.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Growing plants worth points and completing the side quests. To get the points from your plants, you don't even need to place them in your garden! Just grow them!

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

It's a quest for the ultimate ancient artifact! The Explorer's League is trying to find an ancient item that is rumored to be located somewhere in Bushwhackia. And they need your help with the second part!

They have all the Lockboxes you found for them last time, but all their attempts to open them have failed so far. They need your help finding a Locksmith to try and get into the boxes.

Bush Whacker 2 is 4 Years Old! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy 4th Anniversary Bushwhackia!

Your friends in the Commons event area are up to something--and they need your help!

Be warned, this post contains SPOILERS for the event! You may want to play the first couple days of the event before reading these details!

The developers of Bush Whacker 2 are running the turn-in stations. Over the course of the event, you can find Typo Reports, Bug Reports and Suggestions in the bushes to turn in for event progress. Can you flood the poor developers with enough to earn the 100% Mosaic Piece?

Four daily quests will help you gain progress as well, starting with the quest for Gnome parts. Each completion will award you a random developer gnome and there are 8 of us to collect. Later on, there will be a daily quest to test your Bush Whacker knowledge with trivia questions, plus the return of Linus (from Halloween) who will have a sweet reward and of course, 4 years of whacking bushes has taken its tole, so it's best if you help to replant.

Do you have a favourite outfit from among the all the Custom Items over the years? Well, you can now show them off! Once you build the Costume Contest area, you can enter your favourite outfit and vote. New winners will be chosen daily, and will get a small treat.

Familiar friends, like Nate and Kaine, will also have quests as the event goes one.

And what is an anniversary without cake? Not a very good one! A souvenir cake will appear on Tuesday April 19 at Noon PDT and be available to interact with until Friday April 22nd at Noon PDT.

Event Achievements -- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT

There are a total of NINE possible achievements to earn in the 4th Anniversary event.

Surprise!? - Help set up your own surprise party (Finish the set up and last-minute set up tasks.)
Gnomevelopers - Collect all the developer gnomes.
Support Ticket - Do a turn-in at each turn-in station.
Papers, Please - Do 50 turn-ins at each turn-in station.
Celebrate Good Times - Buy all the 4th Anniversary Event store items.*
Know Your Stuff - Complete the Trivia Daily Quest 5 times.
Lookin' Sharp - Enter the costume contest.
Best Buddies - Complete the event quests for Kaine and Nate. Fashion Critic - Vote 50 times in the Costume Contest!

*The Mini Golf piece isn't required to complete the Celebrate Good Times achievement.

Pet Packs

Coming Soon!

Post your plans for the next year of adventuring with Bush Whacker 2 on the forums!

The event will run until Tuesday April 26th at Noon PDT!

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Which developer gnomes are available?
    There are eight developer gnomes available: Cory, Alexis, Eric, Erika, Peter, David, Justin, and Adam. You can collect one at random each time you do the Gnome Parts daily quest.

  • Why do I want to help Linus daily?
    The more times you help him, the better your reward at the end of the event. His quest can be reset with the VIP power to reset daily quests.

  • Will this event repeat next year?
    Good question! We'll tell you next year!

  • How does the Costume contest work?
    You can enter the contest once per day. Once you've entered you cannot change your entry, so choose wisely. Throughout the day players can vote on other entries much like the screenshot contests from Halloween and the Spring Garden events. At midnight, the top 5 rated entries win, and a new contest begins! Winners get a unique title and an energy pack, but cannot enter the contest again for 3 days.

  • What adds to my event progress?
    Doing turn-ins at the 3 stations and completing quests for the NPCs in the area.

  • How can I find the turn-in station items?
    Just keep whacking bushes and critters. The Holiday Item Runes and Pets will help attract them as well or you can use a VIP Voucher or Token on the Event Drops boon.

  • Do I have to ask my friends to help with the turn-in stations?
    No, you don't have to. They just allow you to gain event progress faster.

  • When will the last quest unlock?
    The last event quest will unlock on April 23rd.

  • Do I have to do the achievements?
    No. Completing the goals for the achievements is totally optional. You get either a large energy pack or a title for your character from them, no event progress.

  • Where can I see all the achievements available and how to get them?
    Either on the holiday dialog, the achievements dialog, or on the blog.

Chat with Erika about BW2! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.
Tags: bw2, community.

Hi Whackers!

Thank you for bearing with us during the growing pains of releasing Crusaders. As it was an unexpectedly a massive success which created many chat rooms and communities to keep track of, our community management efforts have been strained.

We realise that part of your enjoyment of Bush Whacker 2 is seeing us at Codename in chat, and we know that this hasn't been happening as much as we would like. So, we're going to try something new.

Instead of Erika spending time in chat at unannounced points throughout the week, we'll schedule a specific time each week for her to spend an hour in Facebook chat and one hour in Big Fish chat for Bush Whacker 2, answering your questions directly (assuming the information is available, of course). This way the community will know exactly when they can connect with Erika in chat.

If you can't be online to talk to her live during those times, you can still always post questions and suggestions on the Codename, Kongregate and Big Fish forums, and request technical support through the ticket system, as usual.

Starting the week of April 12th, Erika will be in Bush Whacker 2 chat on Facebook every Wednesday, 1-2pm Pacific Time and on Big Fish every Friday, 2-3pm Pacific Time.
