Online Ghouling During Halloween, these are the best events!

Halloween. The one time that you can leave your cobwebs in front of the door and nobody looks at you strangely when you howl at a full moon. In October, many game publishers perform séances to make special eerie content. So we can style our character and weapon to match this terrifying season.

Published on: 13-10-2021

A lot of holiday-themed events happen all year round. What makes the Halloween event special is that you can often get a lot more event-exclusive items compared to other events. So naturally, there are Halloween events to be found in all of our favorite video games! Some games come with their own spooky levels, but what we are looking forward to the most is customizing our characters to fit the season. Let’s find out what unearthly surprises await us this month!

The Battle Royale Genre

If there is any genre that is perfect for a Halloween event, it must be Battle Royale. Normally, matches are already very thrilling and nerve-racking. But add a ghostly map with spooky sound effects, and your adrenaline goes through the roof. 

Apex Legends

The Halloween event in Apex Legends is “Monsters Within” and can be played from October 12, till November 2. Remember that time when you walked out of the bunker in Apex Legends and a Wraith lurked around the corner? Well, this time they are dressed as the “Mistress of Evil” to make it even eerier. All the highlights for this event in a nutshell:

  • New Arenas map: Encore. The map is located on Boreas, the home planet of Seer. 
  • Shadow Royale. From October 26, until November 2, every time you’re killed, you respawn in shadow form. You can happily take your revenge until the last member of your squad vanishes. 
  • Reward track. By completing missions, you save up for free cosmetics and packs. 
  • Skins & Cosmetics. New and older Halloween items can be bought during the event to fight in style. 

Fortnite 

The beloved Halloween event Fortnitemares is reanimated in Season 8. The event lasts from October 5 till November 1. All over the map, you can find pumpkins and other iconic Halloween items. Even the battle bus is dressed in style. Throughout October, Epic Games teases and releases new cosmetics and other content. What other bewitching content can we expect:

  • Skins. Iconic horror creatures are adapted to the Battle Royale stage. You can expect Frankenstein’s monster, the mummy, and Rick Grimes from the Walking Dead. 
  • A new sideways weapon: The Dual Fiend Hunters. 
  • Animated shorts! Cute sinister videos to celebrate the month in which horror icon Michael Meyers returns to the screens. 

Call of Duty: Warzone

Warzone will be possessed from October 19 till November 2. Players who were joining the horror spirit last year in Warzone might still recall the Haunting of Verdansk, a special event with its own reward system. There was also a thing called Zombie Royale, in which zombie attacks came in from all over the place. Make sure you are not frozen with fear when the monsters come at you, or you will be making a quick trip to purgatory. Other content that comes with the “The Haunting” event:

  • Halloween Skins. We can expect the iconic Ghostface from the Scream franchise and Donnie Darko “Frank the Rabbit” Skin. 
  • New weapons. Amongst them is the LAPA SMG, which can be unlocked by clearing challenges. 
  • Bundles galore! Last year we saw several bundles, for instance the Texas Chainsaw bundle, which offered all the goodies related to this gruesome franchise. This time around we will get even more bundles. 
  • Night mode will return. Just as last year, we will be able to play in the dark. Both in Battle Royale & Plunder mode.

World of Warcraft - Hallow’s End

Hallow's End will take place from October 18th and will last until the 1st of November. Hallow’s End began as a celebration to end the harvest event. This is the same date as when the Forsaken broke free from the Lich King. If you wonder what to do in this time around Azeroth and beyond, here are some tips:

  • Daily Quests and events! All over, there will be events such as the Shade of the Horseman event. Villagers will ask you to do certain tasks in order to get rewards. These can be candy, masks, and even brooms. 
  • The brooms are instant cast flying mounts and totally fierce. Sadly they are only available during the Halloween event. 
  • Find candy buckets located at Innkeepers. This will earn you Tricky Treats, which in turn can be traded for goods at vendors. 

As we are used to from World of Warcraft, there are also pets, toys, and clothing to be earned that fit the theme. Perhaps you are feeling lucky and want to try and defeat the Headless Horseman each day. Who knows, you might end up with the elusive Horseman’s Reins!

Pokémon GO - Halloween Mischief

If you want to go outside after dark, you can do so in spooky-style with Pokémon GO. The event is going live on October 15 and lasts until October 31. Just make sure to finish your ritual before catching a Ghastly in the alley behind the church. The cool new stuff that this event brings will come in 2 parts, divided over two weeks. There will be a collection challenge featuring Pumpkaboo, a special Research story called: What Lies Beneath the Mask, and increased XL Candy when you are walking with your Buddy. Besides that, Phantump and Trevenant will make their debut and there are increased spawns for Yamask, Duskull, Alolan Marowak, and Banette.

Other Halloween Events


Overwatch 

The content for Halloween Terror, as the Overwatch event is called, might be hauntingly familiar. Junkenstein’s Revenge is back again, as well as all the old cosmetics from previous years. Time to finally get that Winston Werewolf skin you couldn’t get last time! 

Halloween Terror will last from October 12 until November 2. We can expect new skins, voice lines, emotes, and sprays.

Red Dead Online / GTA

Rockstar also joins the sorcery with Halloween Passes for GTA Online and Red Dead Online. A Halloween Pass for Red Dead Online costs 15 gold bars and provides rewards that are spread out over 20 levels. This time around we can expect the bloodied and torn Boucher Coat as well as the Glabella Lantern. Halloween Pass 2 runs from October 28th until November 22nd.

GTA Online brings a Halloween Surprise. That is literally what the event is called. The event will commence on October 28th and end on November 4. Rockstar feels very generous during the Halloween times and will probably double up on payouts again in some game modes. Of course, we are trying to save up for new cars with Halloween spray. Or perhaps you want to spend your Gold Bars on Weapons and Cosmetics such as face paints or masks.

FIFA 22

We have all had some time to develop our skills in the newest addition to the EA sports family. FIFA 22 will join Halloween with a few tricks and treats of its own! Expect a little rebrand as the “Ultimate Scream” event we are familiar with is now called the “Rulebreakers” event. Scary! The event is rumored to start on October 22 and last for 2 weeks. Within these 2 weeks, several teams will be released, joined by promotional packs and squad building challenges. 

Do one last check under the bed and in your closet before you start up your console or PC. Now hold on to your soul and don’t be frightened, you can always call your mom. Happy Halloween! Muahahaha.
