Prisoner Boss badge...?

So a couple days ago, I noticed in my badge "to do list" (or rather, the "closest to completion list"), that there was an entry for "defeat 100 prisoner bosses" (in ADDITION to the defeat 500 prisoners") So I started off, made a little progress, decided to finish it later.

 

Today I got on a small team to farm these badges, but I couldn't find a listing for the prisoner bosses anywhere. Was this badge removed, or is my memory playing tricks on me? Or least likely of all, did I get this badge and not realize it?

The badge for Prisoner bosses is a gladiator, Mob Specialist.

Playing on Excelsior. Champion forever.

Oh! Yeah, now that you say that, I remember it popping up and not knowing why. I didn't put 2 and 2 together because I only had like 10 points on it (last I checked) and it popped after only a few minutes of team farming, and thought that there was no way we got 90 bosses that fast!

 

Thanks for the info!

It's tricky because they don't have set standard names, they're fairly unique names related to their power. So using a targeting bind is ineffective. Normally they have an aura though, or a unique costume. If your graphics are turned up enough, you can spot those things while traveling around.

I just completed this badge. It's not a good grind. At all. I did it solo and it easily took me a few hours of circling the Zig. I think the final time was three hours spread a crossed three nights? 

 

First off: The Powered Bosses? They don't count. So don't bother with them. I did thirty minutes of hunting them straight and then realized they didn't count. I have no idea WHY they wouldn't count but they don't. 

 

Second off: Don't look for just bosses. Lieutenants also work. The badge description lies. 

 

Third off: Do the Breakout Zone Event. You can get about 3-4 named LTs and Bosses from it. So always complete it all the way through and while it reloads (5 minute time), swoop around and look for more LTs and Bosses. 

 

Fourth off: Run around hitting Tab. Minions are just named Prisoners. However, anything that is named (But not super powered) is a LT or Boss. Kill those. 

 

Fifth off: The badge description also lies again! It's not 100 bosses. It's 200. I was so angry when I realized this.

Thank you! This was very useful.

This badge is a speed bump to be sure

 

It takes 200 of them to complete, not 100 like the description says. 

 

Do the prisoner event for some minor progress but the super powered bosses do not count (go figure)

 

Just circle around the Zig over and over again, any prisoner with an actual name be the Lieutenant or Boss ranked counts.

 

To be honest this badge I think should updated to award along with the defeat badge for 500 prisoners. 

It's the most prominent, dominant badge hunter! All badges obtained on all 15 Archetypes!

Hi all. I would like to add to this.

It does indeed take 200 boss Prisoners and they do have to be boss, cause I can't get the Lt. Versions to count. (Still Verifying)

The prisoner event will only count if there is enough people in zone to do it, but the named (Bosses are always named, these also spawn as Lt's. Go figure) bosses however, will get you there fast enough. Again, as stated in the above post. Arch or Superpowered Bosses won't count for this. (Confirmed.)

 

Lastly, while I would love to throw my hate into the ring to make this badge conditional of the Warden badge (500 Prisoners), I can't because it wouldn't be fair to those who have gone before. Ultimately it's just my two cents.

As of a week ago, LT counted just as well as Bosses. If they are named, they counted towards the count for me - thank god. Else it would have been an impossible badge to get.

Finally, got this one done. Here is the strategy I was using. I hope it helps folks.

 

  • As of Issue 27, Page 3, some fixes might have been before
    • The badge requirement was lowered from 200 to 100.
    • Named lieutenants do not appear to count anymore.
    • Named bosses, pretty there are only the super powered one do count correctly now.
    • The Prisoner Breakout Event gives you only 3 bosses
    • The hunting loop. No guarantee, but you get at least 2-3 bosses plus 3 for the Prisoner event each loop.
      • -209.9 118.4 -561.6 Heli pad
      • Prisoner Event
      • -1547.7 1.0 2374.0 Covered crate storage area
      • -2732.0 17.3 2654.9 South side above/below area
      • -3699.9 -0.4 1278.6 East side underground entrance, next to phone. Check the whole underground area.
      • -3780.9 -64.0 -465.6 Warehouse area, north of the Dark Water underground. Stop when you see Council.
      • -1484.9 83.0 -415.2 Check the power towers until heading west under you reach the heli pad
      • There are probably more, but this is what I found.
    • I find that doing this during the Winter Event is nice, because you can collect presents as you go.
