Those pesky UFOs

I have found that if you tap the aliens at the very bottom of the screen while in a friend's town, you can collect the ray gun without accidentally tapping the UFO. I am doing this on an iPad with a large screen. YMMV...

    On my screen I tap the bottom right to avoid the unseen UFOs. If I can see them I can tap anywhere behind (left of) the UFO.

    My problem is the opposite of yours. Whenever I have ammo I can't find a UFO for the life of me and when I don't have ammo i swear almost every single one of my frienDS towns has the UFO. But when I do want to avoid it (will need to soon for hoarding purposes as well) I usually wait about 5 seconds to see if it shows up and if it doesnt I feel safe enough to tap. Or I just hit the bottom of the screen.

    Why are you trying to avoid shooting them anyway?

    The OP is probably hoarding for phase 3 to help get UBO which will be 14,900 long protein strings

    Each UFO shot down while squishing aliens is one less ray gun. I wait until after squishing aliens then shho down UFOs

    The UFOs don't affect the actions left or at least it doesn't for me
