LOOK OUT DRACULA IS BEHIND YOU! [sound of a creaking door] Ha ha ha! If you scare that easily, this map will kill you.
— Haunted Hallowe'en Special

Harvest Event is a King of the Hill map. It was released with the Haunted Halloween Special Update as an official community-developed map due to its outstanding quality. This is a Halloween-themed version of the Harvest. It includes many gameplay elements that are unique to the map.

In this version, health packs are instead replaced with chocolate bars and candy tins. Pumpkin bombs are scattered strategically throughout the map and explode when shot, damaging and possibly killing players (regardless of team) in close proximity. Killed players will randomly drop a crit-boosting Halloween pumpkin full of candy. The ghost of Zepheniah Mann wanders around the map, haunting any players who venture too close.

The player's goal is to capture the control point and seize it for a duration of 3 minutes while stopping the other team from doing the same.



Locations

  • The Farmhouses - Located directly in front of each team's spawn area, these large houses have two stories with windows and a roof overlooking the center shed.
  • Side Sheds - Open at one end, these sheds contain a Medium Health Packs inside.
