Extortion Run 3: Jeff's Gun Store


The 3rd version of the Extortion Run is now available. This feature is just a complicated version of a Limited Time Property but it requires more parts to upgrade and you get less for each beg.  Like Limited Time Properties, there are 15 levels and making progress on the Fear Meter requires going on a Begging Safari to acquire ‘Rough Ups’. As you level, you can build 1 loot item every 18 hours.  We can ask for stuff every 3 hours instead of 8 but you can only get 6 items instead of 12. You will need to acquire a total of 679 Rough Ups to get to Level 15. More details are shown below.

The help mark on the banner and Extortion Run page shows the instructions.
To start, ask your friends for Rough Ups from the home page banner or the Extortion Run tab which used to be the Operations tab (but is still named the Operations page!). You can ask every 3 hours and get up to 6.
Go to the same areas to level up your Fear Meter and you can make another post to get 5 more Rough Ups. You also unlock the privilege to ‘Extort Fear’ by building the item that is unlocked for the level your Fear Meter is on.
Once you get to Levels 3, 6, 10 and 15 you will get a mastery reward. You don’t need to build this one, it’s automatically granted. The 4 rewards for Levels 3, 6, 10 and 15 are shown below.
Mastery Items
You can also get up to 10 extra Rough Ups per day by helping your friends (8 per help request and 2 per brag request). If you are lucky, you will get one of these.
The not so lucky or very determined will get a lot these instead.

You need a total of 679 Rough Ups to fully master Lenny's Loans. The number you need for each level is shown below.

level1 X1 level2 X3 level3 X5
level4 X10 level5 X15 level6 X20
level7 X30 level8 X35 level9 X40
level10 X45 level11 X65 level12 X80
level13 X95 level14 X110 level15 X125

The feature is permanent so once you get to Level 15 and unlock all the items, they will be available for crafting every 18 hours. When it’s time to craft, go to the Operations page and click Extort. Now that there are 3 of these things, you can craft from each of them. To do that just click on the image of the one you want to craft. The timer can be sped up for 6 reward points which is cheaper than Limited Time Properties but you get half the skill points for Level 15. Since this is in addition to the 5 items we can craft from Properties, it is a good thing.
The items that you can build for Levels 1-15 are shown below. Items for Levels 7-15 come with skill points but not as many as the Limited Time Properties. The Crystal Vest comes with +1 stamina point. The level 11-14 Feral Macaque comes with +2 attack points and the Level 15 comes with +3 energy points. A closer look at the items can be found here.


  1. Mildly off topic but sort of related: is there a problem with the spock pod stream scanner today? I usually post daily takes, extortion posts and daily shuffles from 5 mini accounts to spock pod, so I don't have to forage around for them elsewhere, but the stream scanner (pod option) is refusing to load the things I posted from the mini accounts today.

    1. Pods are moving to a new server, should be sorted in a few days hopefully
