This is a general question about how to get extremely high scores on Scared Stiff, but I am aware that there are some exploits so I’d like to know exactly when they happen.
I was playing Scared Stiff on Pinball Arcade last night to test out the left ramp scoring increase thing. I’d heard that the ramp, when hit repeatedly increases by 50k per shot without bound. I noticed when I played that on the 10th ramp (or better) I had hit at least a limit on the DMD which displayed Beast Ramp 9 (450,000) every time. Is this what normally happens? Is the score still increasing? (I wasn’t able to do the math in my head to see if it was or not since my base score was never shown while doing the combo, and had to concentrate on the flippers)
Also, does the same thing happen while hitting the right ramp over and over again? Right ramp has awards at various levels too (hold bonus, extra ball) but I saw the DMD (on pinball arcade once again) max out at spider ramp 99 and I think score seemed maxed at 450,000 but I could be wrong about that.
“Spider Hole is lit” award. Seems to increase by 50k every time it’s re-lit after a collect. Does this have an upper limit?
Deadheads definitely increase by 25,000 per deadhead and that will display on the DMD. Still takes a long time to build up that value before it’s worth trying to survive the kickout from the hole.
Double Trouble scared stiff doubled 5m shot. Is it possible to bring Double Trouble in to scared stiff round? Safest way being: Start double trouble -> Finish off boney beast ramp to light crate which is already at level 9 -> Shoot crate -> shoot crate. I noticed you cannot start any spider modes when crate is lit to start scared stiff, so you’re virtually locked out from doing this.
I hear ZAC got some 986m score on Scared Stiff one time. How was that acomplished?
