In this crazy event you’ll find yourself running around in a dungeon full of traps and monkeys, while picking up trophies and avoiding turning into gorillas.
The Facepunch Bonanza lobby can be found where Saradomin’s war camp was during The Battle of Lumbridge. The entrance is inside the sunken pillar that Saradomin stood upon during the battle, and a dungeon has been built beneath it.
Points of Interest
The aim of the game is to make it through a devious dungeon for 10 rounds, running from one side to the other. Sounds simple enough, but nothing is ever that easy. You’ll find the dungeon is more like a maze, with routes through either guarded, blocked off, or both.
Each round lasts 60 seconds. You’ll need to get from one end of the map to the safe zone (pictured to the left) at the other end in that time. If all players are in the safe zone then a 10 second countdown will be initiated, even if there is more time left in the round. After 10 seconds the dungeon will rework itself into a new route, and the safe zone will switch to the other side.
Each time you make it to a new round, you’ll receive 1 trophy.
If you fail to make it to the safe zone at the end of the round, you’ll be turned into a gorilla guard and you’ll get to take part in some PvP action. To encourage you to turn on your friends, you’ll get 2 trophies for each player that you take out while in monkey form. You can also get trophies by sabotaging gathering points. If all players have been turned into gorillas, the game ends.
To get extra trophies, you can make use of the various gathering points scattered throughout the dungeon.
|Cabbage Leaf Patch||Wishing-cabbage Bush||Cabbage Ore Vein|
|To gather trophies from these locations, click on it to skill at it for a short period. Whoever reaches enough time skilling at the node first gathers a trophy.|
Monkey minions will not attack you, but they will put up a fight if provoked. If you managed to punch one to death, it will drop 1 trophy (to the player who did the most damage to it).
The dungeon is not just running from one side to the other picking up trophies however, there are hazards to avoid or they will slow you down.
|Walls are spiked wooden barricades that will block your path. You won’t be able to go through them, so find an alternative route.|
|Wall of Fire|
|Walls of fire are towering infernos that will attempt to block your path for a few moments. You can go through them, but you will take a lot of damage – unless you have activated one of your skills.|
|The cabbage cauldron is a strange thing. If you get too close to it, it will fire cabbages at you that will follow you a short distance. If they hit you, they will damage you so avoid them or get out of range quickly.|
|Gorilla guards are tough beasts and will actively look for players passing through the dungeon. They can sprint after you but not for very long so you can avoid them if you’re quick. If you managed to punch one to death, it will drop 4 trophies (to the players who did the most damage to it and it will default to the player who dealt the most damage for any remaining trophies if fewer than 4 players attacked).|
