Halloween Terror brings a whole load of new challenges, including Junkenstein's Revenge, where four players face off against Junkenstein and his Zomnics, the Monster, the Summoner, the Reaper, and the Witch of the Wilds, and Junkenstein Endless, with waves of enemies attacking Aldersbrunn. Ashe and Baptiste also show up this year as the Outlaw and the Renegade to help against Dr. Junkenstein.

For each of the three weeks of Halloween Terror 2020, there are two new challenge missions and new rewards for weekly challenges. Week One kicks off the challenge missions with Vengeful Ghost, where you're chased by the ghost in question, and Frenzied Stampede, where Zomnics are quicker. We don't yet know exact details for the upcoming weekly challenges, although we do know that Week Two's challenges are called Volatile Zomnics and Three They Were, followed by Mystery Swap and Shocking Surprise in Week Three. You'll need to stick around for all of these challenge missions throughout the three weeks of Halloween Terror 2020 to get those achievements.

Winning Quick Play, Competetive Play or Arcade games earns sprays, player icons, and skins. Week One, from October 13th to the 20th, offers the Fantasma Sombra Player Icon for winning three games, while winning six gets you the Fantasma Sombra Spray and winning nine games unlocks the Fantasma Sombra Epic Skin. In Week Two, from October 20th to October 27th, winning three games gets you the Stone Brigitte Player Icon, while six unlocks the Stone Brigitte Spray and nine gets you the Stone Brigitte Epic Skin.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
