Note: More general information about the Scientist challenges can be found here.

Unlocked by reaching zone 40, the Scientist challenge becomes available for completion. The player starts with 11500 science.

Rules Edit

Gaining research points is fully disabled. The player can't work on science, and Trimps can't be assigned as scientists.

The player is limited to an amount of science total until the completion of the challenge. There is absolutely no way to gain additional science until the challenge is completed. Once the challenge is completed, all of the disabled functionality is unlocked, and scientists are unlocked again as a possible job, as well as missing Speedscience awarded.

Strategy Edit

Health is usually the limit of this challenge. The difficulty lies in surviving one attack from quick attacking enemies like the Snimp on the last rows of The Block.

The reward for this challenge is a minor convenience upgrade. As such, it is not essential to do it as early as possible.

To complete the challenge, it is recommended that one gets several tier 2 equipments, and a few Coordinations. Costly production upgrades should be skipped. You can roughly follow the guide for Scientist II, but spend more on Coordinations.

Trivia Edit

  • Before patch V2.75 this challenge did not give 10 Traps.
