IN THE RATS SPECIAL ITEMS AND TOOLS ARE ESSENTIAL!

There are two important basic activities in The Rats that can bring you a fortune and a lot of fun - stealing cheese from your neighbors and stuffing their rats. For every successful attack you can earn - besides a lot of fun, of course - special collection items, souls to get more rats, and delicious cheese! Your attempted attacks, however, will not be equally successful - a lot depends on your rats' skills and the items you use.

In this guide we will provide an overview of the items you can use to boost your chances in The Rats. So keep reading and become the true Rats Champion! 

STEALING CHEESE

Cheese is essential for rats, they simply cannot live without it! So you better make sure you always have enough food for your rats. Make them strong enough to break through walls in the cave, resist enemy attacks, and find loot! You can always buy cheese, but of course it is more fun to steal it from your neighbors!

SCANNER

Once you find yourself in a neighbors' cave, you should use a scanner.This is a special item that scans your enemy's cave to mark the pieces of cheese that are protected by a rat trap. Go hunting without a scanner and you can easily get caught in a rat trap! In this case your rat will be injured and you will lose all the points and all loot you have so far earned on this raid. We recommend you use this item to avoid unnecessary drama!  

GLOVES

After you have identified the available cheese with your scanner, you can finally try to steal some of it! Now you will need a special item: magic gloves that can improve your stealing chances! Remember: depending on the skills of both your rats and your enemy's, you have a good or bad chance of successfully stealing a particular piece of cheese. To check the chances, just click on a piece of cheese and you will see a success rate. If the chances are not high enough, you can always improve them by using special items - like magic gloves. This tool will improve your chance to loot without being noticed! Plus you can combine gloves with other items which we will describe below.

LOW POWER LEVEL GLOVES

Will slightly improve your chances for stealing cheese. However, in some cases you should consider using more powerful gloves.

MEDIUM POWER LEVEL GLOVES

It may happen that the regular gloves do not give you the desired result. In this case you should try the medium power level gloves -your chances will be higher! But you cannot combine them with low level gloves; in this case you will have to choose which one you want to use.

SMOKE GRENADE (HIGH POWER LEVEL)  

If magic gloves are not enough, you always have a stronger weapon - a smoke grenade that has the highest power level and will greatly increase your chances! And did you know that you can combine the smoke grenade with one of the gloves and thus increase your chances even more?

BOMB BELT

If you have nothing to lose, you can get serious and use a bomb belt. This item will not increase your chances but it will give you something just as cool: if you get caught by your enemies, the belt will explode and kill all the neighbors' rats, giving you a great loot! All right, the bomb belt does not make you any better at stealing stuff but it will surely be a lot of fun! And it gives you the chance to collect all the souls and collection items from your enemies' rats with one strike - instead of having to earn them step by step via successful stuffing attacks! By the way: the bomb belt can be combined with any item you want!

HOURGLASS

If your chances are not that good but you are not desperate enough to use a bomb belt either, you can use the hourglass. This item will come in handy if you fail - it can revoke an unsuccessful attack and give you a second chance! Make sure to equip the hourglass before you risk an attack with low chances! Note: you can combine the hourglass with all items except the bomb belt.  

STUFFING ENEMIES’ RATS  

Stuffing rats is a great way to get additional loot and souls and to take revenge on your enemies! But here your chances may not always be as great as you might wish, as well. To improve your chances, you can use special items. Let's take a look on what we have got!

POISON POTIONS

The best way to improve your chances of successfully stuffing a neighbor's rat is using a poisonous potion. But remember: you cannot combine different poisons in the same attack.  

SMALL POTION (LOW POWER LEVEL)

A small poison potion will increase your chance for a successful stuffing attack. But as it has a low power level it will be useful only if your rats have a pretty high stuffing skill anyway.

PREMIUM POTION (MEDIUM POWER LEVEL)

The premium potion will significantly improve your stuffing chances. Usually, this potion will be of help in most of the attacks you attempt.

MEGA POTION (HIGH POWER LEVEL)  

If all else fails, you can always use a mega potion. This item is very powerful and greatly improves your stuffing chances.
