castle jackpot on bsd with triple scoring lit

#252 3 years ago

this one for sure on WNBJM, try it and see.

#253 3 years ago

the skill shot on Zankor is damn near impossible. You have to get the ball to bounce off the right wall on the plunge, and roll over an arch of 5 button rollovers. I had it happen once out of about 50 games.

#254 3 years ago

The special when lit on Hollywood Heat. Opening is slightly larger then the ball. I also agree with hole in one on ngg. 19/20 shots goes to driving range it seems.

#255 3 years ago

left loop on Cheetah

#256 3 years ago

Xavier shot on my x-men pro is a killer for me...

#257 3 years ago
Quoted from pascal-pinball:

left loop on Cheetah

Ok then it just isn't my game. Some people say that you can keep shooting that lane over and over to collect bonus when it's lit. On mine you can't just shoot it directly; so I'm not sure why that's such an issue. I'd have to say that's the hardest shot on any of my games as well.

#258 3 years ago

The ramp shot you have to make with a weak flipper.

#259 3 years ago
Quoted from RJW:

It is way harder to hit than the similar ST shot. It is the final shot to beat Super Hero on SM, so in that instance it's worth quite a bit.

I wouldn't know about that. I've been one or two shots away from starting Super Hero a handful of times, but ... an earthquake happened.... each time. Yeah, that's the ticket. An earthquake.

But seriously, I'm glad to hear it isn't just me. I can make that shot one in 5 times at best.

I always have trouble with the GREED multi ball jackpot shot on TAF.

#261 3 years ago

I don't remember what my original vote was for, but whatever it was, I have to change it to the World Poker Tour, "Cut the Cards" shot. I just can't hit that thing to save my life (and it's a pretty important shot if you want to add time or add a ball).

The odd thing is, 24 has a very similarly distanced and narrow shot via the Safe House, but I never had much of a problem hitting that.

#262 3 years ago

The extra ball shot on Whitewater. It's a sucker shot. The only time to really go for it is during multiball otherwise you hit it then drain.

#263 3 years ago

How about trying the away team shot on the current ST!!!

#264 3 years ago

BBB EB drop target straight shot from lower left flipper

#265 3 years ago

Plunger shot on a BBBB. A soon as you launch the ball you realize it was the wrong thing to do.

#266 3 years ago
Quoted from Cdoubleu1:

The extra ball shot on Whitewater. It's a sucker shot.

It should be called "Collect Bonus" instead of "Extra Ball."

That's usually the immediate result.

#267 3 years ago

Reading through this the definition of shot probably should be addressed.

Supder duper skillshot on potc is not a single shot. It is two separate shots that are timed. Same goes for any other combo.

Silence the critic on pm is not a shot. You shoot the ramp which is a gimme. It is a toy similar to say the jump rope on cp.

#268 3 years ago

Hardest shot is from 3rd level to 4th level on Pinball Circus...maybe...

Quoted from chuckwurt:

The skill shot on Big Guns is just like Mr Mrs Pacman. Super tough.

Been playing Big Guns tonight and i thought i would bring this thread up again. Big Guns skill shot on the plunge is almost impossible !!!

#270 2 years ago

Also, if you plunge too soft you almost always end up losing your gate lock !!

#271 2 years ago
Quoted from SUPERBEE:

Big Guns skill shot on the plunge is almost impossible !!!

JUST BRUTAL!

#272 2 years ago
Quoted from unigroove:

Fish Tales' Extra Ball shot
and the EB shot on Centaur

Yeah.. for some reason eb on ft is a bitch

#273 2 years ago
Quoted from Brazy:

I used to be able to hit it pretty consistently when cradling from the right flipper.
Just let it roll down a half inch then hit it, and I would get it most of the time.

#274 2 years ago

RZ left and right orbits for me.

#275 2 years ago

The mystical million shot on Bally's Dungeons & Dragons. The shot takes a while to master as you have to drop 3 timed drop targets on the upper right. Then shoot up the right ramp to hit the target and then time within seconds the upper right flipper to nail the shot on far left ramp for a million. You only get one shot to nail the ramp for a million.

The game talks as you're trying to shoot it saying" mystical million, mystical million, mystical million" if the target has not been hit in this timeframe it all resets.

I just cannot agree with the no good Gofers hole in one shot. I usually average one to three per game. As other owners know you seem to nail a bunch of them during the hole-in-one challenge which doesn't advance the hole you are on. It just builds up by a million every time you hit it. My record during that mode is 6. Maybe luck has something to do with it but it's mostly just timing.

#276 2 years ago

Treasure Chamber ~ Paragon! You really have to lob it up there with a double flipper that you can't catch the ball with...run and gun shot!

#277 2 years ago

Any and every timed shot I need to make!

#278 2 years ago

Delta ramp on STTNG. And right ramp on ToM.

#279 2 years ago

Maybe I just suck but in over 1000 games I don't believe I've ever intentionally hit the Terror Dog target on Ghostbusters.

#280 2 years ago

Extra ball target on Fishtales.

#281 2 years ago

The 50,000 shot on Lizard and Coney Island

#282 2 years ago

Now that I have the Hobbit, the skill shot to land in the inlanes in tough.

#283 2 years ago

TZ piano shot
CFTBL paradoxically the slide shot

#284 2 years ago

Spiderman, hitting the spider sense shot to complete super hero. I have yet to complete super hero but I think that is the last shot to complete it.

#285 2 years ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

Getting there is hard but the actual shot isn't that difficult because it's fairly close to the flippers.

#286 2 years ago

Right orbit on Rob Zombie.

#287 2 years ago

AVENGERS ....BLACK WIDOW RAMP AND IRONMAN LANE ....THOSE TWO ARE SUPER HARD SHOOTS.....

#288 2 years ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

Spiderman, hitting the spider sense shot to complete super hero. I have yet to complete super hero but I think that is the last shot to complete it.

Shooting with the lower flippers and keeping the flippers up to deflect the ball "down" with the upper flipper. Takes practice.

#289 2 years ago

Great topic! From off the top of my skull:

Piano shot in Twilight Zone.
Left lane (collect bonus) on Cheetah.
Skill shot on Big Guns.
Upper left ramp on Whirlwind.
Open bookcase on The Addams Family.
The jackpot on #Checkpoint is a tough one.
Everything on The Getaway: High Speed II. I just suck at that one.

Bookcase in Addams is tough. Also, making the left VUK on The Hobbit is tough for me.

Rob Zombie triple Skill shot.

As far as toughest important shot, gotta go with Gem.

Also one of the best skill shots out there, so very clever who thought of this.

#293 2 years ago

Right orbit on my TOM.

Dirty Harry helicopter shoot ramp is difficult

#295 2 years ago

I don't think anybody has mentioned this, but on WOZ, getting the ball through the haunted forest for a left orbit shot on the second Save Toto ball save--with the timer running and quick music playing--is all but impossible for me. It's like shooting through the Congo pops to the volcano, but worse.

#296 2 years ago

The last shot to start the wizard mode.

Yes, totally agree with this. Also, hitting the 8 ball drop target in Bad Girls is hard as well.

#298 2 years ago

Hmmm....
With games I've had a lot of experience I would say:

EE
Special on Torch (Looks very cool when you do this as an anounced bank shot of the drop targets)

EMs
Extra ball on main PF on Haunted House
Surf Champ, kick out hole. Double bonus on the right side is challenging, too.

DMD
Kiss, right ramp

Many people here mention TFTC ramps, but noone mentions Tommy side ramp? ( specially hard to hit from the right loop), since shots do not always go all the way around to the left upper flipper!!

#300 2 years ago

The clear winner here is in Roadshow - getting the ball in Red's mouth during regular gameplay.
