Poptropica Tips and Tricks: Reload!
A lot of Poptropica Members are getting ready to journey to Wild West Island this weekend. Wild West Island is one of our most varied adventures to date, with a lot of different mini-games to enjoy. Here's a quick tip that should help you get through one of them, the shooting contest, with flying colors.
Whether you're using the pea shooter or the spud gun, you'll have five shots available before you have to reload (by pressing that big ol' button at the top of the screen). So watch how many shots you have left. If you don't, you'll still get a helpful reminder that you need to reload once you've run out.
But here's the trick: Sometimes, it makes more sense to reload before you're out of ammo. If your opponent is looking at some targets that have already been hit, take the opportunity to reload, even if you've only fired a shot or two. That way, when you find a batch of new targets, you'll have all the ammo you need. You won't have to waste valuable time reloading while your opponent shoots them out from in front of you.
