What is Puma Mania?

Puma Mania is a limited time event players can take part in in The City. This branded apparel event tasks players with rocking specific Puma gear while taking part in games around the city. While players wear the Puma gear they are rewarded with bonus XP. The XP you earn is as follows:

  • 2x XP – Day 1.
  • 3x XP – Day 2.
  • 4x XP – Day 3.

To get the maximum amount of XP bonuses you will want to play on Monday. On Monday the XP goes up to 4x. This means you can earn some serious XP for your efforts.


Where to Get Puma Gear in The City?

To take part in Puma Mania you need to acquire some Puma gear. Items are purchased from the Puma shop in the City located in the shopping district area. At this store you want to purchase Puma gear that is either shirts or shoes to wear while playing in the City. I purchased a t-shirt and this appears to be enough to activate the +XP. Cost wise socks are the cheapest item you can get.

What Games does Puma Mania Give XP In?

Once you have a piece of Puma gear equipped the rest of the event is fairly simple. To receive the bonus XP you need to play games in the Park. Other activities like Old Gym and Rec don’t give the XP bonus. After the first game is played with Puma gear on you will get a Puma Mania logo over your player. This means the XP bonus is active. Enjoy stacking the XP.
