Operation: Hot Sauce was the third in the operations series in which penguins are sent on missions involving the Elite Penguin Force and their criminal adversaries (Herbert P. Bear and Klutzy). It began on April 5, 2013 and ended on April 18, 2013. Information was released regarding the mission in the form of a sketch, however there was no release date until Issue #388 of the Club Penguin Times where the Cove was shown with stains of hot sauce.


Possibly upset about his defeat during Operation: Blackout, Herbert attacked the Pizza Parlor, vandalized it and stole the large bottle of Hot Sauce which he later stored in his newly built lair what he secured by building several defensive mechanisms such as invisible entrance at the shores of the Beach. At the same time, Rookie was hosting a Pizza Party at the Cove, but it was cancelled due to lack of pizza.

Herbert was sure his lair could not be found, but the EPF Agent used the TraceTracker 3000 or the TraceTracker 100 to find the secret entrance. The agent fooled Klutzy by throwing a pizza on the "Flood" switch of Herbert's new invention. Klutzy, who was hungry jumped on the switch, and Herbert's lair flooded. The giant hot sauce was found and brought back to the Pizza Parlor. The Pizza Party went back on, and everyone was happy. It is still unknown what Herbert was actually building, but he used parts of the Solar Laser. After that, Club Penguin Island was safe once again.

  • This was the first case to utilize the upgraded EPF Phone.
  • It's similar to the PSA Missions in storyline and interface, but was played in-game, like Operation: Blackout.
  • With the release of Operation: Hot Sauce, prices for Elite Gear items increased, due to medals being easily obtainable, as players were not limited to one medal per week.
  • After completing the mission, players could replay the mission as much as desired, although the medals received after completion would go down by one per replay, until they reached one.
  • Using the TraceTracker 3000 or the TraceTracker 100, it can be seen that Herbert and Klutzy were making snow angels at the Dock.
  • This was the first time Jet Pack Guy was seen as a sprite.
  • There is a small note in the April section of the 2012-2013 yearbook about this event.


  • After completing the mission, some players would be stuck on an infinite loading screen. This glitch was later fixed.
  • When the operation was first released on April 5, the EPF Command Room appeared blank, except the penguins.
