During the Halloween seasonal event, which lasts from October 20 until November 1, several enemies wear costumes that change their appearance, unique enemies spawn, and new items become available via enemy drops or via purchase. Goodie Bags also drop, offering random Halloween-themed items, mostly decorative or vanity.

The Halloween event is not to be confused with the Pumpkin Moon, a Halloween-themed event.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It's possible to change the date on your device (while offline, as the date is set on consoles automatically) to between October 20th - November 1st, in order to activate the Halloween event. However if you wish to not change your device's time to avoid messing up scheduled programs you can use RunAsDate (a program - google it) to launch Terraria with a changed time/date.
