A lot of people are talking about the Milkcan toy in Houdini? What does it do or what does the shot accomplish in the game?

Any answers would be great? I am not sure if this is a toy or just a shot marker.

shooting the milk can shot and then comboing the ramp increases the playfield multiplier.

It's a mini loop marked by the milkcan plastic. Hitting that loops feeds the left inlane. After hitting the shot the ramp is lit briefly for a playfield multiplier. Performing that combo can increase the playfield mulitplier up to 4x. There is also a mode that requires three shots to that loop.

Its a hard shot, good luck.
I joke, right flipper, dead ball, now off end of right flipper gently.
Same shot as woz in same place, same tecgnigue.

Thanks you guys are the best. I get it now.

I like the mini-loop, more games should have that.

Don't worry about it...it's impossible to hit anyway...

Are you implying that Houdini, the super-massive widebody from American Pinball, has tight shots???

it absolutely is not - although you must have the ball at a dead stop cradled in the flipper, and very gently hit the button when the ball rolls to the very tip of the right flipper to nail it. I've hit it 3x in a row and 10x in a game really going for it

I was just joking...but if it takes five steps to explain to someone how to hit the shot, some criticism of the design is probably deserved...

I had about 3 hours on a local Houdini, if you nail the left orbit about 50% of the time the dead bounce off the flipper would hit the milkcan

That probably also works great (although not on my game) This game is full of shots you have to re-think your approach to, which is awesome, although very divisive since the game doesn’t play the way we initially expect. That milkcan shot is very similar to the Creature shot on MB, it just has that crazy tight turnaround when it exits.
