# [Solved] Weakest Quickest

Just starting up playing again after a lengthy layoff and this level is kicking my butt. I’m sure that I can’t see the forest through the trees and I’m just overlooking the obvious, but I’ve tried about 30 different combinations of everything I can think of and it’s just not working. I’m pretty sure that the problem is in the function.

``````# Defeat shamans to survive.
# The function find the weakest enemy.
def findWeakestEnemy():
enemies = hero.findEnemies()
weakest = None
leastHealth = 99999
enemyIndex = 0
# Loop through enemies:
while enemyIndex < len(enemies):
enemy = enemies[enemyIndex]
# If an enemy's health is less than leastHealth:
if enemy.health < leastHealth:
# Make it the weakest
weakest = enemy
# and set leastHealth to its health.
leastHealth = enemy.health
return weakest

while True:
# Find the weakest enemy with the function:
weakest = findWeakestEnemy()
# If the weakest enemy here:
if weakest:
# Attack it!
hero.attack(weakest)
pass

``````

You are not incrementing your index.

THANK YOU! THAT WORKS!

I’ve been banging my head on my desk since yesterday over this.

Here’s a donut just for you

Youre Welcome!

I keep getting wasted and I can’t work out why here is my code in javascript

``````function findWeakestEnemy() {
var enemies = hero.findEnemies();
var weakest = null;
var leastHealth = 99999;
var enemyIndex = 0;
// Loop through enemies:
while(enemyIndex < enemies.length) {
var enemy = enemies[enemyIndex];
// If an enemy's health is less than leastHealth:
if(enemy.health < leastHealth) {
// Make it the weakest
weakest = enemy;
leastHealth = enemy.health;
// and set leastHealth to its health.
return weakest;
}
enemyIndex += 1;
}
``````

}

``````while(true) {
// Find the weakest enemy with the function:
var weakest = findWeakestEnemy();
// If the weakest enemy here:
if (weakest) {
// Attack it!
hero.attack(weakest);
}
}
``````

thanks

Sorry its my first post

You misplaced
`return weakest;`

Got it thanks I fixed it and passed the level

It’s absolutely fine, It’s a common mistake that almost everyone (including me) does the first time they post code.
