Players will also get their very own Spooky Treat Bag. This Spooky Treat Bag, when opened will provide you with consumables, ammo, and a chance at some Halloween-themed Plans.

Lastly, you will receive a piece of Mystery Candy. Yes, the update has combined two of the most thrilling things you could imagine into one. You will be able to eat the Mystery Candy to get one of five random buffs, which may include stat boosts or even Nukashine-like effects.

Trick Or Treat

Fallout 76 Halloween Update Trick or Treat

What’s the fun in events if you don’t get free stuff? Claim a free Spooky Candy Bowl in the Atomic Shop before 2nd November and let it brim with Mystery Candy for you and other trick-or-treaters to relish!

Loot Spooky Scorched to grab Mystery Candy or try buying a few with Caps from train station vendors around Appalachia. Players can place their Spooky Candy Bowl in an easy-to-spot obvious place where the trick-or-treaters can find it!

Note: Spooky Candy Bowls cannot be placed inside shelters.

Once you’ve grabbed a Mystery Candy and added it to your Spooky Candy Bowl, your C.A.M.P. will show a pumpkin icon on the map to inform other dwellers about the treat!

In case your Spooky Candy is empty, the pumpkin icon will disappear till you’ve filled it again.

A trick-or-treater will only be able to take one piece of candy from your bowl per hour, hence you wouldn’t have to worry about someone hoarding candies.
