What shots or other purpose does this flipper have?

I’ve had the game for a year and other than random movement and shots, I’ve yet to see a specific shot I need to use this flipper for.

What am I missing?

Good grief, not this again.

Its only good for hitting captive ball between the ramps. I owned that machine and had same question.

There is nothing that it can physically hit that the others can’t, but shots from this flipper are worked into the code.

1) A’s your ball bounces around the pop bumpers, the Dwarves quadrant of the backglass shows barrels filling up with fish. As the ball exits the pops toward the flipper, a shot from the upper flipper into the lit dwarf targets “kicks a barrel over”. This is progress toward extra ball.

2) the wind lance also feeds this flipper for mode use “one timers” and to kill Smaug. Unless you want to cradle a ball and do it the “cheater cheater” way.

Pro tip: you will hear the dwarf horn to signal a shot is available from the upper flipper. This was added in the latest code.

Just remove it, problem solved!!

I use it to make shots, kills Smaug.

Balls exiting the orbit can roll off the extended flipper to the bottom left flipper instead of the right, or used to hit various roll overs. I use it all the time actually.

It would have been cool though to have a ramp that descended from his gold pile for the final shot to kill Smaug by using it. I'd bet it was part of an early design that was scrapped and the flipper kept.

I use it to relight the kickback all the time...
