A new patch is going up onto the Live servers for PC. This patch includes our new Halloween event, Epidemic. This patch will be happening on Tuesday 10/30/2018. Maintenance will start at 9 AM UTC and will last for 6 hours.
PC Patch Notes
Added in the new Epidemic mode. This new mode includes three different teams fighting to infect the city with their own brand of toxin before the rest. A few quick notes about how this new game mode works:
Pick up your team’s barrels and take them to neutral infection zones
Protect your team’s barrels from enemy attacks till you take over the zone
Attack the other teams’ barrels to reduce the spread of their contagion
Get your toxin spread to 100% and capture Memorial Park to win!
Complete Epidemic daily activities for extra rewards
Rewards include new symbols, weapon skins, titles and a few big hits from the previous Halloween events!
We are also reverting the Improved Rifling change as well as reverting the LCR fire-rate buff.
During the maintenance we are going to be reactivating the 2017 Halloween event. We are working towards being able to patch both PS4 and Xbox but are unable to at this time. Due to this, certain achievements will still have the 2017 date attached to them.
Many different events will be happening across all of San Paro.
Headless Horseman Event
This event is run in special Halloween districts.
The rules for the event are simple:
Collect pumpkins in Halloween versions of Financial and Waterfront to become the Headless Horseman and start the event.
The Horseman must kill other players to convert them to their Pumpkin Army.
Pumpkin Head Soldiers must also kill other players to recruit them into the Pumpkin Army.
Survivors must avoid being killed until the time runs out.
Purple pumpkins are hidden throughout Financial and Waterfront. Finding a number of them will grant you a prize.
Orange pumpkins are found in Asylum and destroying those will reward you with a number of different titles.
Trick and Treat
Finally, there are two contacts, Trick and Treat which are located in Waterfront. These special Halloween contacts are only around for a short time but can be leveled normally like other contacts. They have prizes that you can only get during this Halloween event from leveling them up!
