(Note that this game is still very playable with more worms than what is stated above for bigger shopper maps, playing in larger maps are especially better with many players.)

Triple Shoper is faster paced game than regular Shopper that also have balanced gameplay to make it more competitive. There is no non-AFR/ground weapon in crates in this RubberWorm scheme as well. Number of very weak, useless weapons are not in crates anymore to balance out the game. There's much more room for errors with rope as fall damage or self-damage does not end turn anymore, meaning the game doesn't need to be played by roping very carefully and slowly to help win the game.

Difference between regular TUS Shopper

  • Craterate is 3 instead of 1. (Max crate is 3.)
  • Shooting weapon does not end turn. (sdet)
  • Players can use as many weapon as they want in every turn.
  • Turn time is 10 seconds longer.
  • There's no retreat time, so be careful what players do at last second.
  • Fall damage or self-damage does not end turn anymore. (ldet)
  • Players don't get to freely place worms at the beginning of game anymore due to downtime of having too many worms to place.
  • Each worm have more health now. (250 health)
  • Hotseat delay is reduced to 8 seconds.
  • Firing weapon does not pause turn time. (fdpt)
  • Players start out with weapons from previous round other than the first one.
  • Crate probability of weapons are more varied than the regular one to make it more balanced. (better weapon, less chance of getting it)
  • Petrol Bomb (largely due to ldet), Cluster Bomb (far too map and/or situation dependent), Shotgun, Uzi, Minigun, Fire Punch, Dragonball, Baseball Bat, Skunk, and Flamethrower are not in crate anymore.
  • Grenade have weaker power due to 3 ammo per crate and sdet. (40 damage)
  • Holy Hand Grenade and Mad Cow now can be obtained from crate, and both of them have weaker power.
  • Dynamite, Homing Pigeon, Sheep, Sheep Launcher, and Old Woman have weaker power. (60 damage)
