How to get Mystery Candy in Fallout 76

Whenever the Halloween update rolls around, the Spooky Scorched come out to play and bring treats galore with them. You can tell which Scorched enemies are the Spooky variants thanks to their costumes. Track down Spooky Scorched where Scorched enemies typically like to hide. Loot them for a chance to get Mystery Candy and maybe some Spooky Treat Bags.

If tracking down Scorched isn’t your style, you can also obtain Mystery Candy from Trainstation Vendors that pop up all over the map. Aside from those methods, you can also go the more festive route by wearing a costume and going door to door collecting Mystery Candy from other players. Any C.A.M.P that appears on the map with a pumpkin symbol has candy for you to collect from their Spooky Candy Bowl.

If you aren’t in a candy mood, you can always give it away. During the Halloween event, you can obtain a free Spooky Candy Bowl from the Atomic Shop. Place the bowl in your camp and interact with it to place your Mystery Candy in it. This will allow other players to come by and take some candy.
