The official Virtual Munzee is a special type of munzee that allows you to get points by capturing munzees that only exist virtually and not in the physical world. While you can place Virtual Munzees anywhere, they are designed to be used in areas where it isn't practical for a physical munzee to be placed, such as places where you don't have permission to place a physical munzee.
To capture a Virtual Munzee, a player must simply move to within 300 feet (approx 90 meters) of the area where it is located. Pull up your Munzee map and select the virtual you would like to capture. If you are outside of the distance range, you will be unable to capture those munzees until you move closer. There is no QR code used with Virtual Munzees, so there is nothing physical to find.
You can also capture Virtuals from List view. You will be able to capture the Virtual Munzees within 300 feet of you by swiping left and clicking Capture.
You are also able to capture Virtual Munzees by using Blast Captures, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store.
Virtuals that you own (left) and Virtuals that you have captured (right) will appear as follows:
In addition, Virtuals are able to attract a variety of different special Bouncing Munzees including Myths, Nomads, and more! You can use Magnets to attract these bouncing munzees to a Virtual near you!
You can deploy a Virtual Munzee from the website by logging into your player profile. Select the Undeployed tab to view all of your undeployed Virtuals.
You can then click on the munzee you wish to deploy. This will bring you to a screen where you are able to Edit Munzee (choose name and add notes), Edit Location (add coordinates or drag the munzee to the location you would like on the map), and Convert your munzee if you have applicable credits and wish to. You can purchase Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store if you do not have any available.
After filling in the appropriate information, you can return to the Edit Munzee tab and click Deploy to officially deploy your munzee online. Once the Virtual Munzee is captured for the first time, it is then locked into the general area and can have its pin location tweaked within a 500 ft radius of where it was first captured. For more information about how to deploy munzees, including how to quick deploy from your mobile device, check out How to Deploy.
Virtual Munzees refer to both a type of munzee, as well as a variety of different munzee game pieces. That means that there are regular Virtual Munzees, as well as a variety of other Virtual Munzee types. Keep in mind that different Virtual Munzee types have different deploy and capture radiuses. For example, classic Virtual Munzees of any color must be deployed at least 50 feet away from all other munzees and at least 150 feet away from any of your other virtual munzee types. That means you will not be allowed to deploy a munzee if there are already other virtual munzees within this radius.
Scoring for Virtual Munzees
Regular Virtual Munzees, regardless of color conversion, will be worth the same point amounts.
- Deploy: 55 points
- Capture: Between 10 and 70 points
- CapOn: Split of points with capture (i.e. if 30 for Cap, 40 for CapOn)
Although regular virtuals are worth the same amount, there are many other types of Virtual Munzees that will be worth different Deploy, Capture, and CapOn values. The point values listed above represent classic Virtual Munzees, as well as any that have been color converted.
How to obtain
All Premium Memberships contain four (4) virtual munzees upon each annual renewal. Additionally, you can purchase Virtual Munzees individually in the Freeze Tag Online Store.
