Starting on October 1st, Zones 1-100 will be filled with candy & pumpkins.
Collect Candy, launch it at Pumpkins to upgrade & unlock permanent Halloween costumes for the Soldier, Drone & Turret.
The Halloween Event will start at 12:00 am MST, and run through October 31.
There are 9 candies per Zone.
Collected candies respawn every minute.
Collect candies by actively running around, using the Free Roam Camera, or idly sitting on one.
Or unlock the Candy Magnet and let the candies come to you.
Once unlocked, the Candy Launcher can be used to blast candies at Pumpkins for rewards.
The Candy Launcher is exclusively for the Soldier (Drone or Turret can't equip it).
You'll definitely want to use your Automatic Fire & Dual Wield Abilities, but just a heads up, Perks & Critical shots are disabled on the Candy Launcher.
To equip it, hover over the Soldier & select it from the Weapon Types.
Candy Launcher UI
When the Candy Launcher is equipped the Soldier info changes to show all the important Halloween event stats.
Candy Per Click Pumpkin
This pumpkin increases how many candies the Candy Launcher fires with one click.
Find the Candy Per Click Pumpkin in Zones 10, 40 & 70.
Candy Per Pickup Pumpkin
This pumpkin increases how many candies you get with each piece of candy you collect.
Find the Candy Per Pickup Pumpkin in Zones 20, 50 & 80.
Candy Magnet Pumpkin
This pumpkin increases how quickly candy is pulled towards you.
Find the Candy Magnet Pumpkin in Zones 30, 60 & 90.
Public World Pumpkins
If there are multiple people in a Pumpkin Zone, everyone in that Zone will be credited for the candies other players feed to the Pumpkins (using your Candy Per Click stat).
Other player's candy bullets are never hidden, so you'll always know when someone is launching candy at a pumpkin.
The Soldier, Drone & Turret are getting into the Halloween spirit with unlockable permanent costumes.
Complete Missions to unlock the….
Soldier's Frankenstein & Skeleton Outfits
Drone's Mummy & Green Dragon Outfits
Turret's Turtle & Red Dragon Outfits
All of the Halloween Missions can be found in the Holiday Achievements screen.
Red & Blue Butterflies now have their own magnets, which bring the butterflies to you.
Complete the Red & Blue Butterfly Missions to unlock the magnets and increase their strength, letting you collect butterflies even faster.
Optimized Player Entity
The multiplayer player entity has been changed to use the Pool System. This should increase performance, especially when loading or unloading other players in the Public World.
- Fixed lag when hovering between different weapons
- Pick-up items are now collected differently, fixing the bug where some pick-ups weren't being collected
- Fixed multiplayer bug where other player's Auto Fire bullets weren't visible
- Arena Detail Caching changed for performance optimization
- Buying Pulse Pistol unlocks Weapon Types UI (used to unlock after getting Rocket Launcher)
- Removed all non-ECS bullet code - Bullets converted to ECS so code is no longer needed
- Fixed Rainbow Butterfly null reference error
- Fixed duplicate avatar server errors (duplicates won't affect server performance)
- Added backend logic to support multiple Public World servers
