Kang (or Kodos?) shooting at ray gun

Prev1
I've seen this as well I presume it's a bug. However it may be a way for people who didn't get Kang to get him as a character. That is pure speculation though

    I don't think it's a bug, he was circling the ray gun and shooting laser beams and very clearly animated... I'm thinking those with Kang may get Kodos as well, it just hasn't been triggered yet. But that's also speculation :p

    Better not be another way to get Kang. I spent a fortune on him.

    Since you have Kang, have you seen this yet in your own town?

    Not yet. None of my friends have Kang so I can't confirm if it happens in their Springfield.

    The only reason I think it's a bug is that when visiting friends towns you can't use the ray gun to shoot him down. I spent the money to get Kang so hopefully this wasn't in vain. Next time I see him I will play around and see if there is a way to deal with him, maybe clicking directly on him will do something.

    Here are a few others talking about it. I'm sure there's more somewhere.

    I have seen it. It would be odd for a new animation to be just a bug. Worth keeping an eye on it.

    A lot of people believe it's a bug because you can see her only in friends' town. But I tend to agree with you, I expect (hope in :P ) something, maybe something like "obtain Kodos by helping your friends to get rid of her " :P :P

    Ohh, thank you dromtsul. When I tried searching it, I must not have used the right keywords. I was wondering why no one had discussed it yet, derp :roll:

    Just finished visiting 100 friends and at least 25 have Kang in their Sringfields, but not once did I see the alien buzzing across.
    Will again check tomorrow.

    Just done my friend visiting for the day, all of the ones with the ray gun had kang/kodos shooting at it.
    Can see why people think its a glitch and why people think it may be incorporated into a story line, as it isnt glitchy and has good animation. Personally I think it's a glitch but only time will tell!

    Possible but I think unlikely since Sideshow Mel is directly related to the cannon for a mission.

    I'm more convinced its a bug today I tried out quite a few ways to get him to no avail I tried:
    Tapping the ray gun in the neighbours town while being able to and not being able to collect from other buildings
    Tapping the saucer itself
    Being in the neighbours town with the saucer flying around while they click on their own ray gun to see if that would work.
    Also from what I can tell he only seems to appear to people who don't already have Kang which suggests it isn't a secret character. I may be wrong on this though.

    Kodos shooting at the raygun does happen in Springfields that also have Kang! I peeked at my Springfield (which has Kang ) on a friends iPhone and sure enough there was that alien wailing away at my shiny nice ray gun. Not sure if this is a glitch or not, I'm just glad other people are seeing it too BC it kind of freaked me out the first time I saw it!

    What I meant was that he only appears to those who don't have him when they visit friends that do.

    So you mean that you don't own a version of Kang? You see him only if you don't have Kang in your own Springfield? Or is Thadygirl's understanding ?orrect? I have seen in other threads on this topic that those who saw Kang flying about in other Springfields could also see a Kang doing tasks or just walking about in the same town. There's even a screen capture of it here somewhere. I'd like to see this for myself!

    Sorry if I'm being unclear. In my Springfield I own the ray gun and thus Kang. In my friends Springfield he does not. When my friend visits my Springfield he sees both a flying saucer around the ray gun and Kang on the floor doing his own thing. However when I go visit other Springfields that have ray guns the saucer doesn't appear but Kang is still wandering around. My Theory is that it is that you can only see the saucer if you don't own Kang and are visiting a neighbour that does. Hope that clears up what I was saying :)
