Shielded Petercraft

Hey guys,

I just received an awesome tip from Meredith regarding the shielded Petercraft, some of you may know this already but this was brand new to me so I’m posting it so we all get the benefit…

To destroy the Shielded Petercraft (and more importantly, get all those items we need) you have to zap it twice BEFORE it leaves the screen, otherwise it resets back to needing two hits again.

Excellent tip and I had no idea lol so thanks Meredith for that.

  1. Hi everyone,

    Not sure if this happened to just me, but I noticed that my shielded petercraft didn’t start to drop items until I completed a quest that said to destroy two petercraft ships. I think you need Lois to open the quest.

    I love this site and community. Thanks to the bloggers and commenters for all your help!

  3. Don’t know if this is the case for everyone, but if the smaller Petercraft is too close to the Shielded one and you fire, it does not seem to hit the Shielded one at all. So make sure you wait for the right moment until you fire.

  4. I am still having issues with shooting the shielded ship and it doing no damage. I know of the 2 shots per screen trick but that is not enough. I am holding more shooting until this game glitch is fixed by TinyCo.

    I give TinyCo credit. I complained amoung others too that hyposprays were not dropping after defeating Borg. They wrote they fixed the issue to me and now the hyposprays are dropping again.

  5. I personally think the team here do an excellent job.. Sometimes I get ahead of them, I mean, they are only people, and have real lives and jobs that don’t revolve around this game like everyone else.. The problem is, when we are playing the game, we want answers right then… Sometimes, they can’t do that..
    I love how on the questlines, I can get 2 things accomplished at the same time (Riker sit down Riker style, or Lois lead the cadets)… I couldn’t do that with out the help of everyone here..
    I personally try for material collection during the day, and when I go to bed, set my characters for the questlines.. Usually the questlines are 4 hours or more.
    My point is, it isn’t the moderators fault..If they help in doing one time saving quest, then they are helping..

    Thanks guys..
    PS So glad Rypod has brought his bit of humor back…

You know what they say Fred, you can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time but never all of the people all of the time ๐Ÿ˜Š but you’re right, I personally work 9hr shifts 5 days a week so I’m behind most of you in the game but I’ll always do my best to provide you all with the most up-to-date info to help you all out ๐Ÿ˜Š and don’t worry, my humour will be around for a long time to come (I’m only 29 so I reckon I got another 50yrs of humour left in me) ๐Ÿ˜‰

  6. Hi, just wanted to say thank you for the props! I hope this tip helps too: I have found the trick to getting phaser energy is to ignore all quests have all characters that can give phaser energy do so. Build 2 weapons lockers keep rebuilding switching with new rooms that also give stuff for characters. I have now been able to get 5 phaser crystals every 6 hours. I have been trying this one particular trick now for 2 days seems to work 75% of the time, now this only works if you do the following first go to the item you are trying to get, lets use the Q-tips as a example, go to V-Quagmire in harringtons, click on the Q-tips the list of how to get them pops up click on Bruce the game will bring you to bruce (if he’s not busy) and his tasks will appear and choose the task for Q-tips. Now when the character is done with his/her task and before you click on a person whom you are trying to get the item from go to that particular item ( as I explained above) the game will bring you to the character who is done click that character and your chance of getting that item increases 75%. For phaser energy go to your replicator find a item that requires phaser energy click on the phaser energy it will list how to get it click on the go next to the person listed. ( same applies to all crystals) Now rooms don’t seem to work as well so I just keep switching. So far from doing this I now have 200 yellow cubes to unlock rooms, 52 blue crystals for away missions, and 49 green cubes, I have Dr. crusher already and all characters except V-Quagmire for this event. I also built 4 of any building offered that gives things and crystals you have to build them while they are still building once one is built the item goes away. hope this helps and is clear enough to understand. I don’t spend clams on anything.

  7. Also make sure that the crosshairs turn red before you shoot each time or it doesn’t seem to register the hit. I’ve had a lot of near misses…

  8. Wasted about 10 phaser energies before I realized that, but even knowing that, it’s hard to do with lag and what not. The star trek event is frustrating enough that I’ve thought of just deleting the game altogether.

    1. Yes this event has been spoilt by how slowly the amount of items have come if you are a freemium player. I’ve only just got Locutus and still need two more items for Lois.

      Can’t see me getting the other characters before the end of the event at this rate.

      I don’t expect to get them easily but at least to have a chance with at least 15 hrs playing a day.

  9. I actually have stopped bothering with phasers and am storing them up in the hope the requirement changes. If not, then I lost nothing because I wouldn’t get 80+ anyway or more because I wouldn’t get 100% of the time. I have pretty much written this event off. If the next event is as bad for money grabbing I will delete the app.

  10. My issue is Life Force! I’ve been progressing just fine until this week. Need warp core 4 (I’m at 8), but only had 15/50 life force. Hard to find especially with Riker always on jobs! With a lot of effort I’m up to a whopping 25/50. Any ideas? I’ll never complete event like this!

    1. Ignore the questlines and use Riker to get you up to speed on the LFE. I don’t know what is going on with the sheer volume of requirements lately but ignoring the questlines seems to be the only quick progression route.

  11. Other points:

    take your time and wait for a craft that travels horizontally – most don’t, but they aren’t too rare. Just wait (it’s taken you six hours to gather a batch of bolts – don’t feel the need to start blasting away within six seconds!);

    use two hands and two fingers. One to move the sights and one to fire;

    if you aren’t successful with your first brace just go away for a bit – stop playing. Don’t empty your silos. Come back in a couple of hours and try again.

    1. Also:

      speed of craft varies – wait for the slower ones;

      don’t try to do it one-handed standing up – rest your device on your lap to keep both hands free.

  12. So we need 42 space condoms and the only way to get them without using clams is the Petercraft with 2 shots. Then we need 84 phaser energy and that’s if we don’t miss. That seems almost impossible.

    Like

    1. I wanna know if any trick has popped up to increase the probability of condom drop rate. I’ve destroyed a armored one with no item drop. I’m currently building up my energy until I have enough to possibly get them all and give people time to find patterns.

      Also, a little tip if your still trying for Lois skin and the Borg guy (can’t spell his name). Look for the large smooth meteor on screen. The drop rate is higher if you shoot both in one shot, so follow that rock instead of the regular Peter craft. The craft is easier to spot than the rock (obviously) so following it makes spotting a perfect shot 10x easier than following the Peter craft (which half the time leads to shooting the wrong rock).

  13. Plus i just shot the Shielded Petercraft 2 times and it didn’t blow up. So i’m guessing one of the shots “missed”. Or you have to be super accurate which is difficult when the game lags.

    1. This has happened to me lots of times. I think there is something wrong with the game because I never miss this often with the other one.

  14. This is driving me crazy and using all of my energy. After one shot it doesn’t seem to let me shoot again for a second. In that time the craft usually leaves the screen.

  15. Yeah…unfortunately I’m aware. I guess this would be my one complaint about the event. I’m having a really tough time. Don’t know how many shots I’ve taken, but finding it very difficult to double tap the Shielded Petercraft. it doesn’t help that I get a lot of Hitches and hesitation on the phaser battle screen. I have a galaxy s4 and this seems to be the only part of the game where I have that problem. But makes it really hard to shoot the little suckers. I only have four of the space condoms. I might get Vulcan quagmire by the time the event is over if I’m lucky.

  16. That explains why it won’t be destroyed, I thought you had to hit it teice during the same “game”, not the same time as it shows up. I don’t think I will be able to do that though, it moves so fast…

  17. It says (two shots) after the space condom item, where it says how to attain it to unlock Vulcan Quagmire. Much like how it says (two items destroyed) after the space dust baggie (starfleet lois) and the wand thingy (for Locutus)

  18. I went a few days before I figured it out. I think someone dropped the ball on this. I mean that was a pretty good tip and I wasted at least 10-15 shots on this before I figured it out. I mean that is kinds what this is all about and it’s days before. New tips mentioned by people should probably be taken by a moderator and given its own post. I saw my tip about getting all the xp by building the casket ejector was not seen by a lot of people so how about all new tips presented to family guy tips get their own posting? It is a little difficult to weed through people’s comments to find out tips especially when you have already read the post a couple of times and you think you are finished with is . I am curious to know how many people wasted phaser shots on the shielded one before they realized you needed 2 hots and how many wasted them bc they didn’t know the 2 shots needed to be before it disappeared.

    Now as for tinyco and this latest tip why do they make it 2 shots all before it goes off screen? Why not damage it once then wait for it to come back then shoot again. The lag is so bad that sometimes you cannot get that second shot off and you completely waste a valuable phaser shot.

    I do not mean to come off as ungrateful just trying to make sure everyone gets the “tips” in a timely fashion since it’s called “Family Guy tips”. Although grind your gears has been fun since this horrible event started.

    1. We spend a lot of money to get the walkthroughs done, to unlock characters and to play the game. Sometimes tips fall by the wayside but this happens in all respects, this happens in life! The 2 shot on a PeterCraft just to complete the walkthroughs was expensive so we have to budget for other content. Sorry if that annoys you but TinyCo seem to want more and more money as the events go on!

      We will try to get peoples tips up as much as possible, if you have been around for the other events, such as Comic Con, we will usually post player strategy posts, and we try them out ourselves.

    2. There are a few hot sites with up to the date information on this event. Unfortunately, it’s sad that you have to follow all the bugs and tricks to make it through this event. And we, the readers and posters on these sites and forums are only a small percent of the actual gaming population. Imagine how the rest of the players are doing!
