I had seen promotions for an "Infiltrate the Pentagon" challenge this weekend, which looked like a Robbery Masks/Prized Pigs-style challenge. I'm not seeing that promo today, though I am seeing this one:
The event is billed for "this weekend only" but when you're in the Mafia, the weekend starts on Thursday morning. This event is LIVE now:
2x Fight Loot is a nice way to ratchet up your Fight Club level and stash of Victory Coins while getting some of the harder-to-find drop items and plenty of other loot.
The frequency of the Loot drops in fighting is still pretty low, and some of the Loot may have stats that no longer help you (like the Armored Briefcase above) - but two of anything is better than one.
The Power Attack feature in fighting - letting you fight certain opponents 5x in one click after your initial attack - speeds things along.
I do my fighting in Bangkok hoping to also pick up extra Baht to buy more of my prized Xiamen Tigers. I've never been certain if Fight Loot is city-specific, but I've found good Animals in Bangkok (the Rhinoceres and Cougar included).
NOTE ****See my update to this post, and why the preceding statement is completely ridiculous*** Some insane loot is dropping from fights in ITALY and LAS VEGAS for this event.
Wherever you fight, take advantage of this one.
