Halloween 2019

Posted by: Sven on steam_community_announcements October 25, 2019




Leave your lights on tonight. This won't be pretty. Halloween comes once a year and it always comes with a bang. You will see horrible things, you will hear horrible things and you will most definitely feel horrible things. Now, now... If you think a world filled with zombies is scary enough, it's time to revisit that part of your brain. No, zombies are not the scariest part of this story... Always be on your toes as anything can hit you from anywhere. From monsters, to ghosts, to witches, to demons. But the scariest part of it all, is and will always be. Humans. Yes... Humans will take everything you own. They will kill you on sight. They will hunt you down throughout the lands of Colorado, Caliwood, Oregon, Arizona and even on the peaceful island Tropico. I have one advice for you... Don't be afraid... Be terrified. 

 

 

They're here...

      And these items are returning from previous years:

 

Loot:
  • During the Halloween 2019 event there will be advanced loot tables including all the items mentioned above spawning.
    All of the loot mentioned above will be spawning in both game-modes. However, for Survival, chances will vary and not be the same as in the Open World game-mode.
    This also includes:
    • Halloween themed zombies. (all game-modes) These zombies will drop and sometimes be equipped with Halloween themed items.
    • Halloween type of loot will be dropped all over the maps. (all game-modes)
    • Halloween secret spots will drop Halloween themed loot and spawn Halloween themed zombies.


 

Exclusive Blue Scythe PVE Loot Event:
  • This time we are back with another exclusive item: the "Blue Scythe". This is a melee that does a lot of damage and will only ever be available through the Halloween 2019 event. How to get it? You'll simply have to be lucky. This item will be very rare and available in both the Open World and Survival game-mode. This item is spawning through the entire Halloween 2019 event period.


 

Halloween 2019 Box Finger Event:
  • Besides that you'll be able to find or buy the Halloween 2019 Box there will be another way to get this box. We have added a new item; the "Finger". Fingers can be found and used to be exchanged for a Halloween 2019 Box. Here is for both game-modes how it will work:

    Survival:
    Find 10 fingers and use them to craft 1 Halloween 2019 box. You can do this anywhere in any map at any time as long as you have 10 fingers in your inventory. It will remove the 10 fingers from your inventory and give you 1 Halloween 2019 Box. Fingers are spawning everywhere and drop from zombies, you have the highest chance of finding one of the Halloween secret spot(s).

    Open World:
    Find 10 fingers and use them to trade for 1 Halloween 2019 box. You can do this only in the trading lounge (map) at any time as long as you have 10 fingers in your inventory. You'll have to open your missions and accept the trade in mission, it will tell you what to do. It will remove the 10 fingers from your inventory and give you 1 Halloween 2019 Box. Fingers are spawning everywhere and drop from zombies, you have the highest chance of finding one of the Halloween secret spot(s).


 

Halloween Sales:
  • Throughout the entire event there will be special sales and flash sales. Stay tuned and keep an eye open in our in-game marketplace. Sales will be announced through the official Infestation: The New Z social media channels.

 

Halloween Secret Spots:
  • In both Open World and Survival there is special dedicated Halloween themed secret spots in Colorado V2, V1, Caliwood and Oregon. Now, you might have already found one of the spots as we have to patch these in during a patch before the event starts. However you will then have noticed that loot hasn't spawned there yet. Halloween loot will simply be live on those locations as soon as the Halloween 2019 Event starts. Once again for Survival chances will vary and not be the same as in the Open World game-mode.
    Check further under "Loot" to see further details about the loot.
