Trick or Treat!

Along with slaying Spooky Scorched for loot, there’s the Trick or Treat! part of the event. If you’ve never participated before, you want to claim your Spooky Candy Bowl in the Atomic Shop, then add it to your C.A.M.P. Fill it with Mystery Candy for other players to take as they visit various shelters throughout Appalachia.

Halloween Themed Challenges

While it’s fun to clear away dressed up Scorched from the wasteland, there’s a purpose behind it all. Themed challenges revolving around the Spooky Scorched will start to appear for both dailies and weeklies. No new challenges are confirmed for the Halloween 2023 event.


  • Kill 5 Spooky Scorched
  • Build Spooky Candy Bowl and give out candy from your C.A.M.P.
  • Trick or Treat from other players’ candy bowls


  • Kill 50 Spooky Scorched
