One of the ongoing quests in South Park: The Fractured But Whole is to use and master every toilet in the game. However, some people have had difficulty understanding how to master a toilet in South Park: The Fractured But Whole. In this article we’ll provide some useful advice so you can master every toilet in town by understanding how toilets work in South Park: The Fractured But Whole and what you need to do to not only complete every toilet, but get a master rank so you can improve your hero rank.
How Toilets Work
Toilets have different difficulty ratings. When you first access a toilet you will see a star rating appear at the top of the screen. This is how difficulty the toilet is to master. The more stars, the harder mastery of the toilet will be. For example, if a toilet is four-star difficulty, that means there are four phases you have to get through (not counting the initial focusing period or the gas up phases), and what’s involved in each phase will likely be a bit more involved than a one-star toilet.
When you first start a toilet you have to focus your power before you can begin the toilet mini-game. This involves slowly rotating both analog sticks until you see the hold indicator appear. When you see “Hold” stop moving the analog stick and hold it at that position. Once you have both analog sticks in the appropriate position you must press R2/RT timed with the pulse (so it’s inside the circle) to continue.
Each main phase requires you to move the analog sticks and/or press the corresponding buttons on the screen. This will change every time you use the toilet, but as soon as the button icons appear you are being timed. The vertical green bar should be considered your time gauge. Once the button icons appear during each main phase, this time gauge gets lower and lower. The longer you take to complete the corresponding button presses, the less time you’ll have remaining.
After each main phase you will have to rotate the right and left analog sticks to “Gas Up” the timer gauge. This essentially gives you more time during the next main phase. These gas up periods are very important because the mini-game ends if you run out of time (the green gauge is empty).
To master a toilet, you have to complete every main phase before the time gauge is depleted. The difficulty of the toilet determines how many main phases there are. So if you are sitting on a three-star toilet, you have to complete three main phases to increase the star gauge to the left of the time gauge. Fill up the star gauge before the time gauge is empty and you earn a master rating on that toilet.
Toilet Quick Tips
- While you do have a time limit, you can use toilets as many times as you want, so don’t be in a rush. Just remember the timer starts as soon as the button icons appear on the screen during each main phase.
- Sometimes it’s easier to put the controller down and grip both analog sticks like you would an arcade stick so you can easily perform the required rotation.
- Usually you need to hold a direction, rotate the analog stick, hold down a button, or rapidly tap a button. Sometimes you’ll have to do as many as four actions at once during a phase, so be ready.
