Terraria Halloween

Terraria Halloween: Have you been noticing anything spooky happening in your worlds? The air feels a bit colder, costumed characters are wandering about, and even the occasional drop of candy or cake? Don’t worry, because Halloween is a special time where everyone gets into the spirit of the season in the world of Terraria!

Here is a taste of what you can expect to find during this special seasonal event, which runs each year in-game from October 20th – November 1st!

  • Goodie Bags can drop from any defeated enemies – be sure to collect and open these for a chance and special Halloween-themed loot. From special Halloween costumes to unique paintings and even some unique gear, you never know what you might find inside!
  • Special Halloween-Only rare drops are out there for the taking
  • NPCs have special seasonal items up for sale – be sure to check in for a chance to pick up unique outfits and more!
  • Harvesting Pumpkins can yield a special surprise for those whose pumpkin patches are truly sincere.
  • Even the critters and enemies are getting into the act – keep an eye out for your favorite monsters all dressed up for the season. (just remember not to open the door for trick or treating Zombies!)

The Halloween Event goes until November 10, and I’m wondering what items I should try to focus on getting until that time. I’ve been spending time trying to obtain Goodie Bags, which drop a number of vanity items. But what other Halloween-specific items are only available during the Halloween Event? I know that certain NPC’s sell unique items, but what should I buy before they disappear?


Best Answer

Halloween Mode specific items:


  • The Merchant: sells a sickle for 1 gold. When used to cut grass, it harvests hay.
  • The Arms Dealer: sells the nurse’s outfit (hat, shirt, pants), 3 gold per item.
  • Witch Doctor: sells the cauldron for 1.5 gold. This is basically a re-skinned cooking pot.


  • Bloody Machette, a harpoon category weapon. This has a .05% drop chance.
  • Bladed Glove, a claw weapon with high knockback. This is also a .05% drop chance.
  • Goodie Bags, of course. They drop 1.25% of the time.

The only other difference in Halloween Mode is that pumpkins grow naturally on grass surfaces. You can now buy pumpkin seeds year round though, so you’ll always have access to pumpkins if you have money to spend.
