We’ve all experienced this when playing Snatch right? You’re constantly checking your phone, counting down every second until the exciting reveal – only to have your parcel snatched away in those crucial moments.
How frustrating! Especially if you lost the most coveted prize of all: The Golden Parcel.
The fact is that most of these snatches could have been prevented. It’s happened to the best of us, but we have you covered.
So, here’s 3 tips to keep in mind to effectively defend in future.
1. UTILISE DEFENSE TOOLS.
This is the pinnacle of success when it comes to Snatch.
To prevent an attack, you have a few options: Tent, Invisibility Cloak and the Emergency Battery. Once a snatch has been initiated, you have the Smoke Screen and Snatch Proof Vest to protect yourself. Each with their own unique functionality.
Tent: Protects you at your current location. You will not be attacked if you stay within a 200-metre radius of this location. It lasts for 60 minutes and you can only use it once a day.
Invisibility Cloak: Use the invisibility cloak to keep yourself UNSNATCHABLE. Not one Snatcher will be able to see you on their radar so they’ll have no chance. This tool has a max deployment of three per day, lasting for 60 minutes with each deployment- a total of 180 minutes of protection… not bad!
Emergency Battery: Is used when your battery level is below 20%. You can deploy it twice a day and it gives you protection for 30 minutes with each deployment.
Snatch Proof Vest: Is used for a single deployment against an attack. With every new attack, you will have to deploy the tool again.
Smoke Screen: Gives you protection for 15 minutes from an attack, meaning that you are invisible on the map for this set time (UNSNATCHABLE). Keep an eye on the clock though! Snatchers are Lurking.
2. CHECK IN AT THE SAFEHOUSE.
On the Snatch Map, when you see a green SafeHouse nearby you can check in and be protected. These can vary when it comes to how long this protection lasts. Some may be less or more than an hour. Keep your eyes peeled and make sure you check in before you leave your phone.
3. PLAN AHEAD, LOCK DOWN BEFORE BED.
When it comes to losing parcels when you are asleep, we’d love to be able to tell you that we’re releasing a tool offering an all-nighter. It’s not an option (who knows what the future holds), so we can only insist that you plan ahead (6 hours) and aim to lock down your parcels before you rest those shifty eyes. Or get yourself a good luck charm and hope your parcels are still there the next morning – we’d go for the former.
