    Prizes
    Prizes in Halloween Mayhem are awarded in the form of Mayhem Tokens, which can also be looted from event creatures in this and other Mayhem-style events. Mayhem Tokens can be exchanged for exclusive items via the Mayhem Token Trader, located in Cape Corinth, Port Atlantis and Twin Peaks on Planet Calypso.

    Mayhem Tokens can be accumulated over the course of several events to purchase more expensive items, allowing participants to make incremental progress toward their desired rewards.

    Mayhem Tokens are non-tradable, but the items available for purchase in the Mayhem Token Vendor are tradable. Note that certain Mayhem Token Vendor items may also require special Placement Mayhem Tokens, awarded as event prizes, in order to be purchased.


    Mayhem Annihilation Gameplay
    Interact with the winged statue inside the Annihilation event instance to begin spawning zombies and start the mission timer; the timer pauses automatically when leaving the instance.

    Eliminate Halloween Zombie Mutants to accumulate as many points as possible in 15 hours.

    A random number of points (0, 1, 5, 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, or 5000) is automatically awarded after defeating one of the event instance mutants.

    Once your 15-hour run is complete, your score is finalized and recorded. You can then start a new run to try to improve upon your previously-recorded score. The score from a new run is only recorded if it is higher than the previously-recorded score.

    You can only have a recorded score in a single category at a time. Recording a new score with higher points (regardless of category) will replace any previously-recorded score.

    The top ten highest scorers (most accumulated points) in each category win prizes.


    Practice Annihilation
    There is also a Practice Annihilation mode, which is not part of the competition. This mode allows teams of up to 4 players to enter and has no skill requirement restrictions. Players can also enter without a team.

    Practice Annihilation mode will allow hunters to try out different categories and hunt for Mayhem tokens and Halloween Strongboxes at their leisure. The creatures in Practice Annihilation are Shared Loot. Practice Annihilation opens October 30, 14:00 UTC

    Mayhem Survival Gameplay
    Survive for as long as you can against increasingly dangerous stages of Zombie Mutants and Dogs.

    Dying, disconnecting or leaving will end the instance. Score will be recorded at the moment of disconnect/death.

    You can only have a recorded score in a single category at a time. Recording a new score with higher points (regardless of category) will replace any previously-recorded score.

    Each stage consists of 10 phases. On phases 3, 6 and 9 there will be a capture point that must be reached within 45 seconds, and held for 15 seconds. Failing hold the capture point ends the instance.

    Randomly placed pumpkins containing various buffs appear periodically. Beware that some pumpkins are tricks, rather than treats, and will result in a debuff instead.

    Volatile Barrels - Destructible objects that deal damage to all nearby enemies. PED spent on destroying the barrel is transferred to the loot of creatures damaged by the explosion.

    Survival Practice Area - Loot Halloween Strongboxes while practicing! Same layout and features as the competitive survival instances. Team is required to enter (but one can be solo in the instance). If any team member dies inside the instance or leaves, the instance is ended.

    Survival Mode has multiple sound cues, so it is advantageous to have sound enabled.

    Practice Survival
    There is also a Practice Survival mode which is not part of the competition. This mode allows teams of up to 4 players to enter and has no skill requirement restrictions.

    In Practice Survival mode it is necessary to be part of a team to enter. A team may consist of 1 to 4 players. Once inside the instance the team may be disbanded.

    Practice Survival mode will allow hunters to try out different categories and hunt for Mayhem tokens and Halloween Strongboxes at their leisure. The creatures in Practice Survival are Shared Loot. Practice Survival opens November 2, 14:00 UTC

      Seriously, real talk. If your level is outside of your playstyle, CHIP OUT ALL THOSE SKILLS FOR PROFIT.


      I am perma level <35. I chip out consistently any skills that might raise me above 35. That is my comfortable level of play, and it makes me get profit consistently from hunts by selling the skills.

      So.... Is it repeatable indefinitely or not?
      There is a difference between repeatable and abandoning it.
      Once you complete 15 hours, you can repeat another 15 hours and the highest score will count.
      However if you do 2 hours and feel like you don't have enough points and abandon it to start over again, they will only allow that up to 3 times and then after that you are disqualified.

      I do see the potential issue of them disqualifying people for completing the 15 hours more than three times, however i would hope they do some sort of counter or check in the system to determine when someone abandoned a mission compared to completing the mission.

      Be prepared for all the "i never abandoned the mission MA, i completed it multiple times" complaints when people are marked as disqualified in the final results.

      Nah, waste of time. I'm happy with my level and play style for casual play. This just isn't an event for me, no biggie.
      Was just a little bummed since I had set aside a chunk of dough for it. But both Steam and Oculus are having Halloween sales so they will get my money instead.

      Played Beat Saber for like 6 hours a day the week after it came out (lost a few pounds, lol). It's still fun, but even modded I'm sick of the songs, more of a party game now. Haven't tried Transference, the reviews were mixed. Still playing In Death a lot, love The Forest. This month I'm just going through all the horror games to get in the spoopy mood. Nothing really special yet, mostly just jump scares and experiences. Still fun. Anyway, off topic, sorry folks.

      So I just want to understand this. From testing so far it seems like Cat 1 is the best for my DPS, armor, and budget. But if my max profession level is 51 does that mean for the event I would be forced to do Cat 4? There's no way I can handle those mobs...
      Then you cannot compete, but you can do practice mode.

      Skills are only for using bigger guns, if you're not using bigger guns for bigger cats then you shouldn't have those skills. Sell them for profit.

      Unless you're just not happy with your current level 50 guns, but want to eventually use level 90 guns, but beware you will be spending 10x more than you do now. Is that comfortable spending? If not... Chip out...

      About the repeatable mission. The first time I finished it I had to re enter instance 2 or 3 times until I got the new one so don't panic if you run into the same issue.

      Mate, you misunderstood mayhem events... especially with the design we've seen lately.
      The events are made so you up your game a little in order to participate with a decent chance for placement. Think about it, would you enjoy an event where you had a decent chance to a prize with your skilling gear? i think not. (and yes, at level 51, if your armor and dps can only stand in cat1, that's skilling gear)

      Nah, waste of time. I'm happy with my level and play style for casual play. This just isn't an event for me, no biggie.
      Was just a little bummed since I had set aside a chunk of dough for it. But both Steam and Oculus are having Halloween sales so they will get my money instead.

      Mate, you misunderstood mayhem events... especially with the design we've seen lately.

      Yea I hear ya. I was under-prepared for this, obviously. I had never tried one of the Mayhem events. My only event experience so far was with GR, which is designed more around mob level than player level (which makes more sense to me). It's all good, I will still login and shoot stuff up, just can't compete. No worries. I did loot some boxes so far, so that was cool.

      No, for what I thought would be cat 4, but I had no idea what the mobs were like. It's my first rodeo.

      I'm not a hardcore grinder or investor, I just like to depo and shoot 'em up for fun. *shrug*

      hey ludvig, if you read this... whats up with that 45 gold token UL BP 20 FEN edition in the vendor. i hope it wasnt stocked because now its at 0 and if there has been some stocked and they sold i hope you turn them into limited as this is clearly a bug

      and another question on top as this hasnt been clear for me from last mayhem:
      for the dailys do only kills matter or do higher creatures yield more progress for the dailys, e.g. killpoints?

      This indeed....my guess is that its just the name that is missing the (L) since there is already a BP20 FEN in there under Plat and no one is advertising selling all these guns they just purchased with Gold FEN Tokens (which they would do pretty quickly before MA switch them).

      Otherwise pretty bug mess and i would hope they just remove them completely and give back the Gold FEN Tokens to the buyers.

      i remember they had a similar mistake a while back and there they changed them all to limited as that was how they were supposed to be... sucks that these mistakes happen again though
