Foo Fighters Pinball – Quick Rules (3M’s and Extra Ball)

Foo Fighters Pinball Overlord

Learn the quick rules to Foo Fighters Pinball by Stern. Get an idea of the 3M’s (Modes, Multiballs, and Multipliers) as well as how to get extra balls.


Van Modes

  • Spell V-A-N by hitting white lit shots
  • Go up the left ramp and the ball will be stopped at the van
  • Select your city

Every mode will play a corresponding song. There is a timer and progress bar in the top right of the screen.


Overlord Multiball

  • Hit the Overlord area until lit
  • Hit the ball into the Overlord to lock the ball and make it a captive ball
  • Hit the Overlord captive ball enough times to start the multiball

During the multiball, lock a ball back in the Overlord area to increase scoring.

Area 51 Multiball

  • On Pro, shoot the right ramp enough times to start Area 51 Multiball
  • On Premium/LE hit the lock targets on the upper playfield


Playfield multipliers are gained by the Rock-O-Meter at the right lane right above the shooter lane. Hitting the Chris right orbit will loop the ball back down through the Rock-O-Meter until it is maxed.

Shot multipliers are gained by hitting one of the Ray Gun Targets in the inlanes and then hitting the next shot to multiply it.

Bonus multipliers are gained by knocking down one or two of the Mod-ulator drop targets. Then sneaking by the third drop to hit the long standup bar target. This will give you a bonus multiplier, but the drops will go back up.
