Munzee exists to get you outside and moving! However, with the creation of virtual gardens and fields, it is possible to spend hours capturing Munzees with very little movement. In order to get those caps quickly completed and get you moving again, we introduce the Blast Capture!
Each Blast Capture may be used to capture certain virtual munzee types within a one mile radius of your current location. There are three types of Blast Captures and each captures a different amount!
Blast Capture Types:
Mini Blast Capture
This Blast Capture type is turquoise in color and behaves exactly the same way as regular Blast Captures, EXCEPT that it only captures UP TO 50 virtual munzees (vs the regular Blast Capture's 100 virtual munzees -- maybe we should have called it a Half Blast instead!). This allows for a slightly more targeted approach!
This Blast Capture type is gold in color and behaves exactly the same way as regular Blast Captures, EXCEPT that it captures UP TO 500 virtual munzees -- that's 5 times the power of a regular Blast Capture! If you want an area to be absolutely obliterated, this is the tool for you!
How To Use A Blast Capture:
For example, if there are only 14 virtual munzees within a one mile radius, the Blast Cap will only capture 14 so you would want to use a Mini Blast Cap. If there are 114 munzees within a one mile radius, one Blast Cap will only capture 100 of them.
Blast Caps will NOT capture any physical munzees. You can use up to 10 blasts at a time, which enables you to capture up to 1,000 munzees in one push. Once the current Blast Capture has been completed, you are free to use as many Blast Caps as you’d like (given there are still Munzees to cap in the area.)
Using the Blast Capture is simple. You can purchase all three types of Blast Cap credits in the In App Store, where you can also purchase a Blast Pack for a discounted price. You can also purchase the standard Blast Cap (100) in the Freeze Tag Online Store, and confirm online that they are added to your account. Visiting www.munzee.com/credits will allow you to view your available Blast Caps.
Although you can view your inventory on the web, Blast Captures can only be used in the mobile app. You can also pull up the map on your phone to view the number of available Blast Caps after clicking the bomb icon in the lower right hand corner.
To use your Blast Caps, choose a location with plenty of virtuals to be captured. Open the map in your app and simply press the bomb symbol at the bottom (see above). From here you will choose which Blast Cap type you would like to use. If you're all out of a certain Blast type you can also purchase them directly from this area as well. Simply tap on that Blast type and the you'll be prompted to purchase more.
Confirm the number of Blast Caps you’d like to use, then allow the Blast to do the work for you. You will notice the munzees being captured convert to a bomb symbol. There is no need for you to interact with these munzees, but you can move on and begin capturing other munzees. Once you have used a Blast Cap (or multiple blasts at the same time), you will not be able to use another Blast Cap until the current blast is completed.
Patience is required while using a Blast Capture, because it could take at least 2 minutes per 100 munzees (additional time during weekends and peak server usage) for all captures to be completed. At completion you will receive a popup message indicating the number of munzees captured and the total points.
You can also view your Blast Cap stats by going to your player profile and selecting the “Stats” tab. Selecting “Blast Stats” will allow you to view your past Blast Caps.
**Patience is required while allowing all munzees to be captured from a blast. Please move on and continue capping other munzees while it works in the background.**
