Fallout 76 is getting into the old' Halloween spirit with its festivities kicking off in Appalachia, handing out mystery candy and spooky treat bags to Dwellers.
The event, which started on October 19th, runs through November 2nd, bringing events, costumed Scorched prowling the land and more. Players will be able to take down the Scorched as they haunt the streets of Appalachia, costumed for the occasion. Dealing with a Scorched enemy (which spawns as a legendary creature) will see Dwellers rewarded with a legendary item as well as some Mystery Candy and Spooky Treat Bag which confers consumables, Halloweend loot and more.
Fallout 76 is also hosting its own Trick or Treat event aimed at recreating the thrill of dressing up and going door to door for candy like many of us did when we were kids.
"Starting October 19, everyone will be able to claim a free Spooky Candy Bowl from the Atomic Shop, place it in their C.A.M.P.s, and fill it with Mystery Candy they’ve collected from Spooky Scorched or purchased from train station vendors. Until November 2, all Dwellers will receive Daily Challenges to trick or treat at others’ C.A.M.P.s, as well as Daily and Weekly Challenges to hand out treats from their Spooky Candy Bowls. Each of these Daily Challenges that you complete will grant you one of several possible rewards, like a consumable item, Perk Card Pack, Lunchbox, Repair Kit, or some S.C.O.R.E. Additionally, Weekly Challenges to give candy to trick-or-treaters can award you S.C.O.R.E., rare crafting materials, or even Halloween costumes. If you manage to complete both Weekly Challenges, you’ll also receive the new Popcorn Machine that you can build in your Appalachian abode."
Fallout 76 players can also look forward to sales and more commemorating Bomb's Drop Day on October 23rd, or the date in-universe where...well...the bombs dropped. You can check out the full update and sales info on the Fallout 76 blog.
