This feature has been retired. Thanks for BETA testing!
The Beta Testing Stage was the testing stage the was introduced to the game after the Alpha Testing Stage concluded. The stage lasted from approximately September 2015 to June 2016.
During Beta Testing
During this testing stage, the 531 Hauler, Spook Wood, Sinister Wood, and the 2015 Christmas Gifts were added along with the Sand Islands, Ferry, Hoover, and the Tropics, which has Koa Wood and The Maze. Towards the end of the testing, the Fine Arts Shop was added. Similar to the Alpha Testing Stage, this stage was also intended to find and remove bugs and glitches in the game.
The Beta Axe of Bosses was available for purchase during this time for only $1,100 Money to give appreciation to people for shaping the game into what it is today. This axe has now become one of the rarest axes to be bought boxed. Even if you find it, they are costly to purchase, especially in it's boxed form.
The Beta Axe is the one of the fastest chopping speed out of all of the obtainable axes, with the End Times Axe being the first. The boxed Beta Axe was hidden underneath Wood R Us starting on June 5, 2016, and was removed in December 21, 2016.
More features were added in the game during this testing period than in the Alpha Testing Stage, some of which were the biggest updates, and are still beneficial to the game. Notable examples of this are the addition of Event Items, Wiring, everything included in the January Mega Update, and Spook, and Sinister Wood.
