SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated: Fastest Way to Farm Shiny Objects
What are shiny objects? Why do you need so many shiny objects?
Shiny objects are the flower-like items scattered throughout every area in the game. Some are out in the open, while most are contained within the various Tiki crates. The thing is, you'll want to nab as many shiny objects as possible. There are a few reasons for this.
One: Mr. Krabs can be found in Bikini Bottom, and he'll give you a golden spatula after paying him a certain amount of shiny objects. This amount increases for each golden spatula, and if you want to 100% the game and get all golden spatulas, you need to grab all the shiny objects you can for Mr. Krabs. He wants 108,000 shiny objects in total.
Two: Shiny objects are used to unlock new parts of various levels. If you see a giant clam with a number above it, that's how many shiny objects you need to give it. Doing so will reveal a new path, unlock a bungee hook, or give you an opportunity to nab another golden spatula.
Three: In the final part of Bikini Bottom is a building called The Reef. It's a place where you can view some making-of pictures. In order to get in, you need to fork over another 40,000 shiny objects.
What's the quickest way to earn shiny objects?
You'll gather thousands of shiny objects naturally as you play through SpongeBob SquarePants Battle for Bikini Bottom Rehydrated, but once you reach the end of the game, you might fall short of meeting Mr. Krabs' requests or getting into The Reef. If you want a fast method for getting shiny objects, read on.
Unfortunately there is no magic cheat code to unlock a bunch of shiny objects at once (at least, we haven't found one so far), but there is a pretty quick way to earn shiny objects.
First, you need to play through to the Sand Mountain area. Once you're there, head to the ski lodge with a number 1 on the door. This takes you to Guppy Mound.
When you're on Guppy Mound, it's time to go nuts. As either SpongeBob or Sandy, break as many Tiki crates as you possibly can. It starts before you hit the slide -- there are plenty of Tikis to break in that starting area with Mrs. Puff. Once this part is clear, make sure the cardboard box is open, then head down the slide and break as many Tikis on your way down as you can.
There are lots of Thunder Tikis on the slopes, and you want to run into these as well. This damages you, but Thunder Tikis contain more shiny objects than regular Tiki crates, and they'll blow up any nearby crates you might otherwise miss.
Near the beginning of the slide is a big button on an upper left path. You want to hit that, as it brings down a big ball that will smash through a big number of Thunder Tikis for you, meaning you don't have to take that particular hit.
It doesn't matter if you fall off the course, or die half-way down -- you'll keep all the shiny objects you collect regardless.
Once you reach the bottom, smash any Tikis down there (and destroy all the robots if it's your first time playing this part of the game). Then just hop in the box to warp back to the top, and rinse and repeat. You can reset all the Tiki crates by simply jumping off the side of the slope at the top.
Playing this Guppy Mound slide over and over again is the fastest way to earn shiny objects that we've discovered so far. The amount you'll earn will vary depending on how many Tiki crates you smash, but you can quite easily earn around 1,500 shiny objects on each run down the slope.
