Wait for the salt to flow over the headshot requirement.

I'm unlikely to get one in the timeframe, but I like the idea of a challenge criteria that isn't just "play a few games and get it automatically".

About the free mech how do you get it exactly, do you have to just play the game during the event or do you have to the phase stuff to get it?

You just play. The more you play, the more loot bags you get. When you collect enough of them, opened or not, you qualify for the prizes here: https://mwomercs.com/trickortreat

Play the game as you normally would.

Go to this page: TRICK OR TREAT 7.

Scroll down midway through the linked page, select your Prize and click "Redeem". As you earn more and more points, those particular Prizes (pattern, colours, bolt-ons, etc. will unlock for redeeming. Eventually you will get to unlocking the Hellspawn itself.

Then scroll down again and redeem those Loot Bags. Note that the event has two Phases, so there are two columsn of Loot Bags..




Then visit these two pages and redeem additional rewards:
Phase 1
Phase 2

it's that sPoOpy time of year!

ECM and Phranken season

Loot Bags are loot-critive

Let's have costume contests again

I appreciate the headshot requirement returning to this event- it's a more difficult brass ring to reach for; most of these skill challenges are all but ensured. Perhaps for some more variety, existing in-game challenges (bridesmaid, johnny-5, etc) could be recycled as future event goals?

All working now. Redeeming via browser is slow sometimes.

Hello, Matt... I was looking at the post-Event information, and got curious. Why does it only show an allowance of 6 Days after the Event is over to redeem anything? It makes no sense to me, as previous Loot Bag Events have allowed 14 Days afterward to unpack things at a minimum, in order to not cause players any undue and/or unnecessary inconvenience. Would it be possible to ask for some understanding of what spooky madness is going on behind the scenes? Was this just an accidental error in some spot or another, and merely needed someone to bring it into the light for fixing? :o

And that, you two, is why one should ALWAYS use the In-Game Event Browser to do any Redeems/Claims of any Earned Tracker Rewards which one has gained access to. Please actively avoid using your Web Browser with the Website's Tracker to attempt this, as the interlink through that path seems to have some really awkward issues. :mellow:

That said, you can still use the Web Browser with the Website's Tracker in order to keep an eye on when you are initially able to attempt any Redeems/Claims in the In-Game Event Browser's interface. At least the Website's Tracker is never entirely useless, and can enable people to keep moving along without having to slow down for opening the In-Game Event Browser in order to check on things. :)

I bet you have one already? So do I from the 2018 October ToT4 Event here, which means that the 2021 October ToT7 Event will end up giving me a duplicate. I can only surmise that they made this the current Prize in order to give the newbies a taste of something different. And yes, it happens that I'll admit my own opinion of finding it helpful to give several options to select from for those who could use it. But it happens that I as equally understand such options might have caused undue and/or unnecessary confusion to the newbies, and I therefore get why extra options were not made available this year. That said, we both know that anyone handling this Event could easily sneak in alternate options to shock and surprise us with. :wacko:

Probably one of the most inane events to date.

The headshot requirement is just going to see a plethora of flamer loaded lights running around (see The Beefs loadout on the Nova for a prime example) which basically means zero fun to be on the receiving line due to the naff mechanics the flamer uses to shut down any kind of laser/heavy ballistic mech other than gauss carriers.

Stepped rewards would have been a better approach to the Match Score requirement rather than just hitting the 15k, although, over the period of the event will be straight forward enough to get to.
