This guide will show you how to get the Christmas Present that we usually get on Santa Rappy during Christmas (obviously). Pioneer Christmas has two different opportunities to obtain a Christmas Present per character.


The first present is only available in ultimate difficulty, and requires 2 perfect runs of the quest to obtain. The second christmas present requires a bit of setup, but can be done on normal and is quickly repeatable once it's ready.

First Present:

Here is the steps, you can do it in like 30 minutes depending on how good you will be at not screwing up the puzzles :

  1. Epsiode 2 Ultimate difficulty multiplayer, run [event] Pioneer Christmas . You must be alone (because 3 NPC will follow you). Note: Bring an extra shop weapon along with you for the end.
  2. Go in the mountain with the 3 NPCs and complete the level 3 puzzles. No mistake allowed (aka : /lobby -> rerun if you fail).
  3. Go into the cavern, talk to the woman at the right side and give her the extra shop weapon (don't do armor or shield). Complete the quest (you should get 500 mesetas).
  4. Launch Pioneer Christmas in Ultimate once again.
  5. This time, you unlocked level 4 puzzles. So complete the level 4 puzzles without any mistake (your score must be 20/20)
  6. The rappy will give you a Christmas Present when you finish the last puzzle.

Note : the Christmas Present can only be obtained once per character.

Here are the puzzles (pictures are from univers-ps, made by Kra) :

Concerning the puzzle completion : you must step on the switch in the right order before the timer ends. What interest us is the level 3 and level 4 puzzles.

Note for new players : the N00b/Hp unit comes from Christmas Presents

 

Second Present:

At the end of Pioneer Christmas, you will be asked to wrap an item from your inventory. Wrap up a random extra weapon from the shop (buy this before you go to mountain, as pipes are disabled in the quest). When you drop this present, you will notice that it is no ordinary present. These presents come in different colors!

The color present you receive is tied to your account. If you take this present to Gallon's Shop quest (Ep2 Shop), if you speak to a man looking out the window near the telepipe area, you can show him your special present. Doing so will unlock that color as an wrapping option in Gallon's Shop. This does not use up the present, so you can keep it around to give to other players and let them unlock more wrapping papers as well!

There are 9 alternate wrapping papers to unlock in addition to the default White + Pink Ribbon. Since the presents are not used up when unlocking more wrapping options, it should be fairly simple to help other players unlock all possible options of presents. These colors only work with Weapons, they do not work with Shields or Armors.
-Yellow + Blue Ribbon
-Black + Yellow Ribbon
-Light-blue +  OrangeRibbon
-Pink + Yellow-green Ribbon
-Magenta
-Blue
-Yellow
-Vermillion
-Green

I quite enjoyed the Triforce Mysteryvent.



Once you have all 9 alternate wrapping papers unlocked, you can easily get many more christmas presents. Simply wrap 9 cheap shop weapons with all the alternate colors (wrapping costs 10,000 meseta per item), give them to any character (can recreate a lvl 1 char repeatedly for this), then take the presents into Pioneer Christmas. If you donate all extra colors of presents to the children with the lady near the bottom of the ramp by the telepipes, you will receive another christmas present!

TL;DR
1. Trade/borrow for all colors of presents with other people.
2. Unlock wrapping options by showing all colors to the man by telepipes in Gallon's Shop (ep2 shop)
3. Wrap 9 cheap shop weapons in all 9 alternate colors.
4. Give the presents to any character (recreate lvl 1 char repeatedly for more)
5. Turn in the presents in Pioneer Christmas to the lady by the telepipes for a Christmas Present!
6. Lather, Rinse, Repeat.

Yes, any am pretty sure of it.

Also note that :

If it's a weapon : you get a colored present that can be used for something else (I'll add this to the guide later). Colored present depend on your account : which means you cannot get another color with the same account.

If it's a shield or armor : you will get a white/pink present that does nothing at all.

This is also why no0b/hp aren't worth more than 5pd imo. If anyone ever needs all the present colors unlocked you can easily ask someone that has them to wrap up 9presents for you quickly(they may even have a set laying around in their bank to trade to all their own chars), I can wrap some colors for people when I'm not lazy/busy. You can get 10 presents per stack of meseta fairly easily (just a bit of menuing is all), and neither a stack of meseta nor the effort spent to wrap presents are enough to justify more than that.
