The Mutant Tangerine is the 8th building and main antagonist in the game.
Mutants will multiply once one is built starting with 100,000,000 tangerines and kill humans. Each Mutant Tangerine produces a base of 120 TpS. The spawn rate of mutants starts at 1/sec and increases to a maximum of 14/sec.
Mutants kill 31 humans per mutant owned every 1/10th of a second, so 310 humans per second (31 * 10).
- eg. 10 mutants = 3,100 humans killed/second
- eg. 512 mutants = 158,720 humans killed/second
The spawn rate works like this: (Mutants are spawned based off this algorithm every second. Not taking Heroes into account.)
- If there are 9 or fewer mutants spawned, the spawn rate is 1.
- If there are between 9 (exclusive) and 20 (exclusive) mutants spawned the rate is 2.
- If there are between 20 (inclusive) and 280 (inclusive) mutants, the spawn rate is (Mutants Owned * 0.05) rounded up
- If there are 280 or more mutants, the spawn rate is 14/sec since that is the cap.
In other words, by spawn rate:
- 1: 1 to 9 or 20 mutants
- 2: 10 to 19 or 21 to 40 mutants
- 3: 41 to 60 mutants
- 3-13: (spawn rate - 1) * 20 + 1 to (spawn rate) * 20
- 14: 261 or more mutants
e.g. Owning 50 mutants -> (50*0.05) = 2.5 rounded up = 3 mutant spawn rate
e.g. Owning 200 mutants -> (200 * 0.05) = 10 mutant spawn rate
e.g. Owning 20 mutants -> (20 * 0.05) = 1 mutant spawn rate, which is why you see the rate go back down to 1 for a split second, then back to 2.
e.g. Owning 500 mutants -> (500 * 0.05) = 25, but since the spawn rate is capped at 14 the spawn rate will be 14.
Each mutant earns a base of 120 TpS, but at 50,001 mutants, new mutants drop to 0 TpS.
However, there is a glitch. DO NOT buy any hero tangerines until it just became 50000. You will get 120 TpS from even newly spawned ones.(Yeah...Its how my income kept going up) but this may cause extinction of the human race.
