Halloween will descend on Appalachia like costumed Dwellers on a bowl full of candy. Quite literally, hungry trick-or-treaters will haunt your doorstep in search of some sweets and Challenge rewards. Even the Scorched that prowl the Wasteland will be dressing in their most hair-raising attire and dropping special treats.Fallout 76: Inside the Vault – Spooky Scorched, Trick-or-Treating, Bombs Drop & More!, October 15, 2021

Spooky Scorched is a limited-time community event in Fallout 76.

Overview

Spooky Scorched

Defeat Spooky Scorched and loot their spooky treat bags

Some of the Scorched will dress up in their most frightening attire, with bone-chilling holiday music heralding their arrival. Take them down to claim their spooky treat bag and mystery candy.

Trick-or-Treating

The spooky candy bowl only offers its sweets to players in costume

Throw on your best costume and go trick-or-treating in your neighborhood! Players may build the spooky candy bowl (available for free in the Atomic Shop Atomic Shop[2]) at their C.A.M.P.s and fill it with mystery candy, a special Halloween candy corn. The candy bowl will only dispense to players wearing costumes, once per trick-or-treater, per hour, per bowl. C.A.M.P.s with placed spooky candy bowls will be marked with the candy bowl icon, regardless of whether or not the bowl contains mystery candy.

In addition to being dropped by Spooky Scorched, mystery candy may also be purchased from various vendors around Appalachia. It is best to stock up, because both daily and weekly challenges involving trick-or-treating will be running during the event.

Name Effect
Lucky Break +1 LCK for 10 minutes
Mystery Treat Surprise You're blacking out!
