Operation: Hot Sauce is the first in a series of in-game 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, but no release date was given until Issue #388 of the Club Penguin Times where the Cove was shown with stains of pizza sauce.
The Pizza Parlor was attacked and Herbert P. Bear stole the giant Hot Sauce bottle. Afterwards Herbert P. Bear used it for his own evil purposes. It is unknown what he would do with it but that he used the Solar Laser from Operation: Blackout as part of the invention. At the Cove, a Pizza Party was going to be held by Rookie, but was cancelled due to lack of pizza. A piece of white fur and some sauce on the ground were found at the Pizza Parlor as evidence to finishing the operation.
Possibly upset about his defeat during Operation: Blackout, Herbert attacked the Pizza Parlor, vandalized it and stole the large bottle of Hot Sauce. To store it, he built a lair with an 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. EPF reconstruction was also postponed.
Click on the hot sauce on the table next to the Pizzatron 3000 (but any hot sauce in the room will do). You will put the hot sauce in your EPF briefcase.
Click on the fur on where the big hot sauce bottle used to be. Again, it will be put in the briefcase.
MEMBERS: Open your EPF Spy Phone and click on gadgets. Place the hot sauce and the fur into the part that comes out. NON-MEMBERS: Go to the EPF Command Room, place the evidence inside the machine near the main screen, and wait for six hours.
