This highly sophisticated, technological wonder was originally created to aid the air traffic controllers of Hollow Heights by detecting incoming storms. Due to a serious design flaw (or, as the designers claim, an "unexpected feature"), this remarkable gadget not only forecasts the weather but it actually intensifies it! After a few notable airspace incidents involving some very unlucky dirigibles, the air traffic controllers banned these devices permanently. A few clever hunters then picked up the discarded units and adapted them for mouse hunting on Moussu Picchu where they've since proved quite useful in speeding up progress through the region.

Use this base in Moussu Picchu to double the weather intensity gained on every successful catch based on the type of cheese that is armed.

Obtained Via

The Forecaster Base is a Limited Edition base not sold by any Trapsmith. It may only be obtained from opening a Season 8 Treasure Chest.

Each Season 8 Relic Hunter Treasure Chest has a chance of containing the Forecaster Base. The more Season 8 chests you open, the greater your chance of finding the Limited Edition bases will be!
There are two Limited Edition bases in Season 8. After opening 29 chests, you're guaranteed to either find
1) both bases in your 30th chest, if it is a rare chest and you have not already found them
2) first base in your 30th chest and second base in your 31st chest, if it is a normal chest and you have not already found them.

Specific Effects

When used in Moussu Picchu this base doubles the gain in weather intensity on every successful catch based on the type of cheese that is armed.
