    New Curcubitor Boxes
    When the Curcubitor event runs, Curcubitor NPCs are spawning on the X-2 to X-8 maps and they will increase in difficulty and drop rewards depending on where they spawn.

    Kill Curcubitors to spawn the Boss Curcubitor! On death, the Curcubitor drops a trick or a treat.

    If Trick, the Curcubitor drops a mine with 20% (of players’ hull) damage after 2 seconds. If Treat, the NPC drops a reward box with random rewards.

    The Treat rewards in the Curcubitor box will be a certain amount of Candy Corn with a 100% chance and additionally one of the rewards below:

    Please note that the Curcubitor box as well as the Boss Curcubitor box won’t be affected by any booster bonuses.

    The Candy Corns can be used for crafting recipes. All Candy Corn and Golden Candy Corn stocks will be removed 48 hours after the event ends and changed into Honor:
    • 1 Golden Candy Corn = 20,000 Honor
    • 1 Candy Corn = 1 Honor

    Objectives & Battle Pass

    When the event starts, there is a battle pass and new objectives available for players to complete. The objectives are similar to missions but you don’t need to accept them manually. The progress for the objectives begins automatically when the event starts. Completing these objectives gives you rewards and completing them with the Battle Pass even gives you better rewards.

    Together with the objectives, a “Battle Pass” is available in the shop. You can purchase it either with Uridium or via Payment. The “Battle Pass” gives you access to additional rewards on top of the original rewards that you get from completing the objectives.

    IMPORTANT: If you buy the Battle Pass after having completed some objectives, you need to claim the Battle Pass rewards of the already finished objectives in the Objectives Window in the game. If you complete the Objectives after buying the Battle Pass, the rewards will be booked automatically.

    New event recipes

    There are some new event recipes which can be crafted during the event. There are a lot this time and it might be that you’re not able to craft all of them during the event. Just pick those recipes that you want to craft!

    Changes after Open Beta Test:
    • We doubled the amount of golden candy corn that can be earned from the Frightful Curcubitor.
    • We increased the chance of earning golden candy corn from Boss Curcubitor.
    • We improved the rewards you can earn from Curcubitor and Boss Curcubitor
    • AI-ECO1 Level 4 can be crafted multiple times instead of once in the Assembly
    • Trial of Terror is slightly harder
    • We improved the battle pass rewards - some objective changes, more PET related rewards and swapped out HP-D01 with HP-DIM01
    We've also fixed some issues reported by the players, like:
    • Frightful Curcubitor not shooting lasers. It should be shooting lasers now.
    • Improved display of the HP Beacon's visual range
    • Improved click area of the Boss Curcubitor and Curcubitors in 3D
    • Fixed Curcubitors and Frightful Curcubitors not counting towards Battle Pass objectives
    • Old halloween quests were still appearing. They have been turned off.
    It was also reported by players that Curcubitors do not drop "Tricks" in the Trial of Terror Gate, and only drop "Treats". We have decided to leave this as it is, it‘s a small reward and further encouragement for you to take part in the Gate. This does not affect the mechanic of Curcubitors dropping "Trick" or "Treat" outside the Gate.

    Another point in the player feedback was that there’s no longer a random P.E.T. protocol level 4 given out upon completion of the gate. However: In this event, the reward gives you golden candy corn which you can use to actually choose what level 4 P.E.T. protocol you want. And the increased amount of golden candy corn that you can get allows you to earn those P.E.T. protocols more easily.

    One additional note:

    The Trial of Terror gate will have a 20 hour cooldown after the player loses all their lives or completes the gate.
