This page contains tips and tricks for the Avatar of Sneaky Pete special challenge path.

Mr. Store Items

With Sneaky Pete not allowing Your Mystical Bookshelf skills and familiars, a large number of Mr. Store items are unusable in Hardcore that otherwise usually are.

Here is a complete list of Items of the Month which can be used in Hardcore Avatar of Sneaky Pete:

Normal runs can also pull Mr. Store items. Remember that skillbooks, familiars and familiar equipment are unavailable, but the shirt slot is still usable. The Crown of Thrones and Buddy Bjorn are useless as they cannot be occupied.

Astral Consumables

  • With only 5 stomach capacity, astral hot dogs are a poor choice as you can only eat one per day and it's not hard to fill up your stomach with other great alternatives, especially if you have access to the Hot Dog Stand.
  • Unlike other Avatar classes where the astral energy drinks are a no-brainer, Sneaky Pete can actually generate adventure-yielding spleen items via Incite Riot. It also shouldn't be too hard to fit in astral pilsners if you're able to expand your liver capacity to the max.
  • Therefore the energy drinks are great for low skill runs that don't plan on exploring much of the Dangerous Rebel skill tree, but those that are able to go deep into the tree and get Hard Drinker could find the pilsners as a competitive option. More analysis is needed on this.

Astral Gear

  • Pete can wear shirts thanks to Best Dressed, so the astral shirt is a viable option, and a great option for low-skill runs, providing lots of easy stat gains in an otherwise under-utilised slot.
  • The astral mask offers a range of useful benefits, however the item drop bonus is less useful than usual if you are able to get Natural Dancer because your available item drop is so huge anyway, and you can gain access to the yellow ray effect via Flash Headlight with the appropriate motorbike upgrade. If you're not planning on going all the way through the Loveable Rogue tree, then the astral mask should be very strongly considered in hardcore.

Workshed Items

  • As this avaar, you get free access to Nash Crosby's Still in your workshed. This is in addition to your normal workshed item.
  • As you will be crafting a LOT of cocktails, the High Efficiency Still is a good choice and will help you stretch your materials out to fill your potentially giant liver.
