Enter the Candy Crypt, if You Dare!
This October, to get you in the mood for all things scary and spooky, we’ve gone a bit more gruesome with our themed specials — but with a sugary twist as you’ll see later on. For now, expect to see the usual trimmings of Halloween decor — think skeletons and monster parts — with a few sweet surprises mixed in. These specials are live NOW until 23:59 MHQ time on November 6th!
Candy Crypt Specials
These specials will be released in waves, but will end at a total of 2,000 Mummy Caskets and 2,000 Vampire Coffins. Though there will only be one icon shown on the map, at launch there are a possibility of 3 different icons for each (a total of 6 different results!) revealed after this special is captured.
Each icon will correspond with a different artifact that will not be visible until captured, similar to how the Magic 8 Ball specials worked. More artifacts will appear as the month goes on, so make sure to keep an eye out!
They will bounce around every 2 hours or when capped.

Curious as to the contents of these body boxes? We’ll give you a sneak peek, but you’ll have to track down some Candy Crypt specials to discover the other 5 (for now) options:
These munzees will not be blastable. They will be attracted to magnets, available from the Freeze Tag Online Store. You can access the Candy Crypt specials under the “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Specials” filters.
There is also a line of 5 new badges to earn. They are all based on receiving specific combinations of the results.
Since, as mentioned above, more artifacts will appear as the month goes on, at launch it is only possible to earn one of the badges, but we’ll keep it a secret for now.
A Peek at Pumpkoins
When you capture a Candy Crypt special, you have the chance to earn 1 Pumpkoin, which you can see below:
These will work just like past limited-time credits, for example the Candy Corn Credits (the first of their kind!) or the Painted Rose Credits (the most recent one before this one).
You can check out the new Pumpkoins (Week 1) tab in the Redeem Store by clicking HERE.
While everyone can earn Pumpkoins as usual, you’ll notice we’ve changed some rules in how they can be redeemed in the “Week X” tabs:
- Some items can only be redeemed by Premium Members
- Of the items available to all, non-Premium Members are limited to 1 redemption, whereas Premium Members will be able to redeem up to the max limit we’ve set
Make sure to keep checking back each week to see what you can trade in your Pumpkoins for!
