How do I get mystery candies?

There are three ways to get Mystery Candy. First, you can buy it from vendors at train stations, such as Berkeley Springs Station and Charleston Station. Second, you can collect it from player-owned Spooky Candy Bowls. These can be found in player camps with an orange Jack-O’-Lantern icon. They emit a low sound, which makes them easier to locate. However, you can only retrieve a Mystery Candy from the same player’s bowl once per hour.

Finally, you can get Mystery Candy by killing Spooky Scorched, which spawns all over the map in certain locations. These enemies will only appear during the Halloween event, so be sure to pick up some mystery candies early. Here’s a guide to Spooky Scorched’s locations and spawn rates.
