During the Halloween seasonal event, which lasts from October 20th Desktop VersionConsole Version / October 1st Mobile only.png3DS logo.svg until November 1 Desktop Version / November 10th Console VersionMobile only.png3DS logo.svg, 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. The Pumpkin Moon is still able to spawn WITHOUT the Halloween event.

* Does not drop from Statue-spawned enemies or Meteor Heads.

** "Weak" enemies are enemies with less than 20 defense, 40 damage and up to 5 Silver Coin of loot. These will be mostly pre hardmode enemies. When playing in expert mode all enemies are much stronger and therefore these conditions limit the amount of enemies that can drop the Bloody Machete and Bladed Glove to just a couple, specially during hardmode. See the table below for clarication.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • It's possible to change the date on your device (Console Versionwhile offline, as the date is set on consoles automatically) to between October 20th Desktop VersionConsole Version / October 1st Mobile only.png3DS logo.svg and November 1 Desktop Version / November 10th Console VersionMobile only.png3DS logo.svg, 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 the external utility [RunAsDate] to launch Terraria with a changed time/date.
