Happy Halloween! This week, we’ve got some spine-chilling updates to share with you about our ongoing Spooky Scorched and trick-or-treating events. If you’re an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate member, we’ve also got details about how you can get your hands on some sweet loot. Finally, we’ve included reminders about Public Test Server playtesting, as well as our latest Double S.C.O.R.E. weekend, which begins today. Read on to catch everything you need to know.
SPOOKY EVENT UPDATES
There’s an eerie feeling creeping over Appalachia as we draw near to the most haunting holiday of the year. Even the Spooky Scorched can feel it, and they’ve recently begun recruiting even more members into their ranks in anticipation of Halloween. Prepare to blast your way through lots more costumed Scorched, because we’re greatly increasing their spawn rate from 12:00 p.m. ET (16:00 UTC) on Saturday, October 30, until that same time on Monday, November 1. We hope you manage to fill up on plenty of sweet treats and grab some themed loot this Halloween weekend.
Last week, we had been hearing from the community that trick-or-treating Challenges to give out candy felt a bit difficult with everyone being so busy hunting Spooky Scorched and doing their own trick-or-treating. In case you missed it earlier this week, we’ve made a couple of changes to the trick-or-treating event based on your feedback. First, you now only need to give out one piece of Mystery Candy per day from your Spooky Candy Bowl in order to complete the Daily Challenge. In addition, we’ve decided to extend the entire Spooky Scorched event, including the trick-or-treating Challenges, by an extra week so that everyone has some more time to earn the Challenge rewards.
We hope you enjoy hunting down Spooky Scorched and trick-or-treating around Appalachia until 12:00 p.m. ET on November 9.

DOUBLE S.C.O.R.E. THIS WEEKEND
Before we wrap up this edition of Inside the Vault, we’d like to share a reminder that we’re kicking off a Double S.C.O.R.E. Weekend just a little later today, at 12:00 p.m. ET (16:00 UTC). If you’re looking to give your Season rank a boost, the be sure to take on as many Daily Challenges as you can until Monday, November 1. Each one you complete will grant twice the normal amount of S.C.O.R.E., which means you’ll be able to rank up and claim Season rewards much faster than usual.
Until next time, we’ll see you in Appalachia.
