Commence the smashing of pumpkins! Pumpkins have made a return to The Fog. During matches, players can smash the gourds to achieve one of the following: Haste Status Effect, Hindered Status Effect, or nothing at all. Although, there is a chance that players can get Void Energy.


Void Energy

During the Haunted by Daylight event, players will encounter Void Energy. In order to collect the energy, players will have to complete tasks such as repairing generators or hooking Survivors. Players can also steal Void Energy by stunning the Killer or downing a Survivor. Players can only carry 15 Void Energy at a time, so deposit it in the Unstable Rifts before losing them. The Unstable Rifts will illuminate on the player’s map and will respawn throughout the trial. The Rifts will disappear if not interacted with but will respawn shortly after.
