General strategy

See also: Community Harvest strategy

This Halloween map features pumpkin bombs, Halloween pumpkins, Zepheniah's Ghost, and the Soul Gargoyle; see Community Halloween maps strategy.

This map is near-identical to Harvest, so you can use any strategies it has. For the Halloween items littered around the map make sure you watch what corners you go into this is because you can run into Zepheniah's Ghost or run in front of a pumpkin bomb which might be harder or easier depending on what class you play. If you don’t watch you can become an easy target for other players.

Class-specific strategy vs. Zepheniah's Ghost

Leaderboard class scout.png Scout

Scout is the most likely to accidentally run into him due to his speed. It might help to strife in entrance of hallways before running in.

Soldier’s long range damage can help with killing any enemies who are stunned by Zepheniah while keeping your distance Zepheniah himself.

The Powerjack is helpful for getting you around the map but it might put you in front of Zepheniah. Airblast can be used to push players back into Zepheniah to restart how long they are stunned for.

Be careful what hallways you place in because Zepheniah can make them useless by detouring them away. Pipes can be used to punish stunned players while keeping you distance.

Leaderboard class heavy.png Heavy

While you have a better chance of not running into Zepheniah as heavy, you will have a harder time getting away from Zepheniah. This can be avoided by being careful what corners you jump.

Sentry Guns can be placed in hallway exit to catch stunned players who are running way from Zepheniah or players trying to get ammo or health but it might be more helpful for your team to place the sentry by the control point.

Leaderboard class medic.png Medic

Medics have to be carful around such corner because it will make them easy targets for Snipers. Leading casing enemies into Zepheniah can help you live long enough to escape.

The only time you will need to worry about Zepheniah is when picking up ammo. Use your long distance to pick off stunned players

Make sure you scan the area before going for a target because being stunned can ruin your attempt to backstab your enemy.
