This celestial event of festive proportions has crashed into Gnawnia! Although the original origin of this cheer-spreading comet are unknown, hunters from across the Kingdom are calling its arrival cause for festive celebration!

Hunting Strategy

In this location, there are mice of four different power types (Hydro, Physical, Forgotten and Tactical). There are currently no traps that are effective against both Forgotten and Tactical mice, so the hunter needs to pick the trap with the power type of their most desired mice. Alternatively, hunters may consider using the luckiest trap available to them.

SUPER|brie+ and Gingerbread cheese are the only cheeses that are consistently effective in attracting all of the festive mice that are exclusive to this location, though SUPER|brie+ seems to be better in obtaining the Christmas Tree Mouse (see the main Christmas Tree Mouse article) and is essentially necessary to attract the Worker Mouse. The use of conventional cheeses such as Brie or Swiss does not attract the festive mice as much and eliminates altogether the attraction of several mice including the Scrooge, Christmas Tree, Troll, Hydra and Gargoyle. The overall attraction rate of regular cheese is rather low in this location, but the Abominable Snow Mouse is still attracted to your trap.

Hunting tips by Larry

Welcome to the Festive Comet, MouseHunter!

This massive snowy comet smashed into Gnawnia resulting in a massive explosion of candy canes and snow!

There are all sorts of festive looking mice here! To attract a festive mouse to your trap I suggest using SUPER|brie+ or Gingerbread cheese. You'll find that both work quite well here!

A few resident mice here have been spotted carrying gifts... twelve to be exact. I have a strange suspicion that collecting all the different items will prove to have a benefit!

Watch out for errant snowballs and happy holiday hunting!
