With Season 1 of the Battle Pass wrapped up and Season 2 kicking off in early November, there's a special FREE spooky surprise waiting for you in the meantime! On October 23, H1Z1 on PS4 will be updated to bring you a limited-time FREE Hauntfest Event Pass, a new Arcade Mode with rewards, and new skins you can earn or purchase.

Hauntfest Event Pass

The limited-time Hauntfest Event Pass will be available and FREE for all players between October 23 and November 6! You'll automatically unlock it just by logging in, and you can increase your Hauntfest Event Pass tier through the usual methods - by completing Challenges or increasing your Season Level.

Each tier of the Hauntfest Event Pass grants you Treat Crates, which can contain a variety of ghoulish goodies.

Treat Crates

No tricks here, only treats! Each Treat Crate can contain Hauntfest Event Pass Medals, Credits, or the brand new Dead Man's Chest, which is filled with spooky skins. Here are all the different ways you can score Treat Crates during the Hauntfest Event Pass:

  • Tier up your FREE Hauntfest Event Pass
  • Increase your Season Level
  • Complete your Challenges
  • Find them randomly around the world in the NEW limited-time Arcade Mode, Hauntfest (you'll want to go for those airdrops!)

Arcade Mode: Hauntfest


Ready for a sugar rush? For a limited time, a new ruleset is available in Arcade Mode: Hauntfest! Hauntfest is a Solo mode, and each match takes place during the evening. Look for piles of candy hiding in plain sight - picking up and eating them will greatly increase your running speed, and give you a bit of health regeneration to boot. Watch out though, as sugar rush can also cause tunnel vision!

Plus, you'll also find Treat Crates during Hauntfest matches - you'll want to hunt down those airdrops for your best shot at Hauntfest Event Pass Medals, Credits, and the new Dead Man's Chest.

Dead Man's Chest


Filled to the brim with ghoulish get-ups, the new Dead Man's Chest will make sure you haunt your enemies! There are a few key ways that the Dead Man's Chest is different from previous Crates:

  • All Common tier items inside the Dead Man's Chest are no-dupe - this means that when you open a Dead Man's Chest and it's a Common item, you won't receive the same item again until you've unlocked all the other Common items inside.
  • Collect all 10 Tactical Masks and you'll automatically unlock an added bonus - the full Green Bone set! This set contains the Green Bone Skull Mask, Hoodie, Work Boots, Baggy Pants, Body Armor, and Magnum.

As mentioned above, each Treat Crate you earn gives you a chance at receiving a Dead Man's Chest. The new Dead Man's Chest can also be purchased directly in-game if you're looking for more chances at the Green Bone set!

    Deadmans chest in airdrops? Oh boy this is going to be like rushing for gold airdrops throughout the game. Skins in a airdrop is going to cause calamity

    The "treat crates" are in air drops, and you have a CHANCE to get a dead man's crate from that

    This is much better than I originally expected, and i'm a little annoyed I have to wait a week. However, that'll give me chance to tie up a few lose ends and ultimately increase my anticipation for the update in under a week. 

    I was annoyed that Season 2 was not released straight away, however this sounds great and it is therefore well worth waiting for Season 2.

    Also, how long will this event run for? 

    Cheers,
    Will

    Sounds like a great event. I'm super pumped about it. I wish it would have started today/this weekend because everyone has been done with season 1 for so long now. Oh well, another week it is.

    Little tidbits in there that suck...

    The fact that this is a grind fest or you need to spend cash to get this is super disappointing!
    I honestly hope the "candy" crates are a bit easier to find then the damn gold skull mask you needed for the other arcade mode.

    Its pretty disappointing this isnt out now.

    This kinda bothered me as well i hope you can unlock the green bone set even if you don't get all the masks. im thinking it will be like the gas masks that came out which i was fine with as long as it didn't drop dups

    The event will run from Oct. 23rd till Nov. 6th, and i'm sure season 2 will start a short time after that if not right away

    Not quite correct - the COMMON tier items of the Dead Man's Chest are no-dupe (the regular rules apply for all other tiers). This was done for a key reason - to help you collect all those Tactical Masks for the Green Bone set!

    Hope that helps clear things up :)

    Hi. I actually pointed this out a month back when i said that common items obtained from victory crates should not allow for dupes. I see that this has been applied for this event but still hope you will reconsider again for general victory crates. Grinding a bit for rare items is sort of ok provided the odds are reasonable. Any kind of grinding for common items is really disappointing and clear for me to see that odds are stacked against us considering how any times ive won... That aside, look forward to event!

    so basically all the tactical helmets are common rarity?
