Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters

From Toontown Rewritten Wiki

Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters was a major event that commenced on May 2, 2019, and ended on May 31, 2019. After uncovering a highly classified Cog memo with mentions of a "C.F.O. Project", Lord Lowden Clear and the Toon Resistance initiated an operation to put a stop to the Cogs' plans by invading Cashbot Headquarters.

Crashing Cashbot Headquarters

Resistance Outpost

At the heart of Cashbot Headquarters, the Toon Resistance managed to secure their own "Resistance Outpost" comprised of gag barrels and plenty of jokes after sabotaging Cashbot Headquarters. The entire headquarters was covered with graffiti and Cashbot freight trains were destroyed.

Near the Resistance Outpost, Toons could find Lord Lowden Clear and several Resistance Rangers such as Rocky, Loopy Loopenloop, Bulletin Belle, and Cassie Peppercakes, as well as gag suppliers of Goofy's Gag Shop across the headquarters.

Toon Resistance ToonTasks

Toon Resistance ToonTasks arrived to offer exclusive rewards that Toons could not obtain at any other time. Toons could complete the limited-time ToonTasks to earn all sorts of rewards, such as double gag experience, Cogbucks, Promotion Assist unites, five-star Fire SOS cards from Lord Lowden Clear, and exclusive clothing and accessories.

The Toon Resistance expected Toons to complete their ToonTasks in due time to ensure that the operation could be successful. Once their takeover of Cashbot Headquarters concluded on May 31, 2019, the ToonTasks expired and Toons were unable to claim their rewards.

Battle against the Chief Financial Officer

Toons of any laff without their own Cashbot Cog Disguise received a Cashbot Rental Suit to infiltrate the Cashbot Vault and battle the Chief Financial Officer. Some Toon Resistance ToonTasks also involved helping a certain number of Rental Toons defeat the Chief Financial Officer.

Timeline

Date Event
April 29, 2019
The Toon Resistance intercepted a Cog memo months prior.[1] Lord Lowden Clear publishes a blog post unveiling the initial Cog memo, along with two other Cog memos, and enlists the help of Toons to decrypt them.[2]
April 30, 2019
Thanks to the help of Toons, Whispering Willow publishes a blog post the next day, unveiling the decrypted Cog memo.[3] The Cog memo describes a top-secret project by the Cogs called the "C.F.O. Project" that is said to counter the increase in jellybean values compared to Cog currency. Highly confidential assets are shipped via Cashbot freight trains to Cashbot Headquarters and the Cogs expect Toons to not interfere.
Date Update
May 2, 2019
Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters begins.[4] The update included:
  • Teleport access to Cashbot Headquarters was granted to all Toons during Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters.
  • The Toon Resistance received a partnership with Goofy's Gag Shop and new gag suppliers were added to a Cashbot freight train in Cashbot Headquarters. Laff barrels were also added around certain spots of the headquarters.
  • Cogs no longer roamed Cashbot Headquarters but goons were deployed around the pathway and entrance to the Cashbot Vault.
  • Laff requirements were temporarily lifted from the Cashbot Mints.
  • A disguised Trolley would occasionally run through one of the middle two tracks (the outer two tracks were blocked with Cog trains that collided). If a Toon was run over by the disguised Trolley, they would gain 10 laff points, with a possibility of a few extra points.
  • Dynamic street signs were added; the first of these promoted Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters.
  • Toon Resistance ToonTasks were released, offering the following rewards:

Trivia

  • Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters was first teased at ReplayFX 2018 with a trailer preview once attendees completed a scavenger hunt that involved finding pieces of the Cog memo.[7]
  • Atop the pillar opposite the Dollar Mint elevator in Cashbot Headquarters, a random bear and deer NPC were seen playing rock-paper-scissors. With each game, the bear would lose and the deer would start dancing.
  • Some lines of dialogue in a Toon Resistance ToonTask from Bulletin Belle that had an overview of the Chief Financial Officer's bank statement made an indirect reference to the Executive Office Tower when it was discovered that the Chief Financial Officer had plans to purchase golf clubs and visit Bossbot Headquarters.
  • Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters came with an incredible case of irony, as many clues suggested that the "C.F.O. Project" did not imply the Chief Financial Officer. Towards the end of the operation, Lord Lowden Clear stated that no Cashbot had any insight on the project.
  • During Operation: Crash Cashbot Headquarters, an Easter egg involving traffic lights on either side of the train tracks were seen blinking. In actuality, the lights were displaying secret messages in Morse code. The exchanged conversation between the green light and the red light seemed to imply that Toons were taking down the wrong "C.F.O. Project".
