Halloween Contracts are a set of Contracts for use with the ConTracker during Halloween Events. The Contracts were introduced in the Scream Fortress 2017 Event and were expanded in the following Halloween Events. These contracts are free for every user, similar to the Pyroland Contracts, but are active only for a limited time during the Events. The Halloween Contracts can be contributed by friends through the Friendly-Fire system.

These contracts are navigated, selected, tracked, and turned in using the ConTracker. Every contract completed and turned in earns a Halloween Package, an Action Item that opens to give out any single Halloween-restricted item from the previous updates, similar to the Goodie Cauldron or the Gift Cauldron. The items granted will be non-tradable and non-marketable, meaning they cannot be sold on the Community Market, nor be Traded to others. Also, when completed and turned in, Halloween Contracts count as Merasmissions on the Soul Gargoyle.

From the starting Scream Fortress contract, players can unlock and choose from contracts for the bosses, official maps, and community maps. The boss contracts are unlocked in the order each boss was added to the game; Horseless Headless Horsemann, MONOCULUS, and Merasmus. From the first official map contract, Harvest Event, the three boss map contracts can be unlocked in order of their release into the game, while the contracts for the last two official release Halloween maps are unlocked from the first. The community maps are arranged in lines by year of release, and are unlocked in alphabetical order in each line.

Strategy

See also: Bugs affecting and significantly accelerating Contract completion.
  • Be polite: Don't greedily pick up Crumpkins if some other player needs them for Contracts (or the Candy Coroner achievement) or can make better tactical use of them.
  • Be efficient: If there is a Bonus Objective that a player can accomplish reasonably quickly (there are several in the Halloween set), the souls collected while focusing on that Bonus first can simultaneously completely fulfill the Primary Objective.
  • Have a plan: It is possible to turn in all Halloween Contracts in the set by completing only one Objective per Halloween Contract; however, once a last Star has been used to activate a Halloween Contract, at least one Objective must be completed and turned on that Contract before activating any other. Turning in a few extra Bonus Objectives gives more flexibility in queuing up for maps.
  • I make it look easy! If the player's objective is to complete only a few easy Bonus Objectives with minimal effort, then
    • "Escape from Loot Island" (Eyeaduct) and "Stun Merasmus with a Bomb Head" (Ghost Fort) are high-scoring, easy actions that can be done many times in a round, rapidly completing both the Bonus and Primary Objective.
    • "Deposit Soul/Gib Objectives" can be easily completed before the Primary Objective is completed.
  • Mmph mmmph mph-mph mmph mmmmph! Several Halloween Contracts have a Bonus Objective of collecting Halloween pumpkins, with enough souls collectible in the effort to complete the Primary Objective at the same time.
    • The Spyro technique (augmented with the Powerjack for flanking) is particularly effective at this, both creating and immediately picking up the pumpkins.
    • Alternatively, discharging an Mmmph into an enemy crowd can easily drop one or more Crumpkins, which can be quickly picked up to continue the crit-kill spree (if you survive).
    • Follow the Boss around during a truce; Boss kills have a much higher rate of dropping Halloween pumpkins.
  • C'mere, Crumpkill! To score Crumpkin kills, the Spy, Scout, or Pyro can set up rear ambushes on multiple players that are close to each other, picking up any Halloween pumpkin that drops from the first kill to kill the others nearby. Look for narrow passages from the enemy spawn or for pushes on a KOTH Capture point for group ambushes.
  • Y'all know what, you're not scary, you're just weird. Completing Boss contracts can be as simple as showing up, setting the contract, damaging one of the Bosses during a truce, and finishing the round. As long the Boss you damaged is defeated and you finish the round, you get the completion. (You do not have to play the round from the start.)
  • And these bodies. Do they have to be under the circus? Picking up a Soul Gargoyle adds 10 Contract Points all at once to the Primary Objective of the active Halloween Contract!

Bugs

Bugs affecting and significantly accelerating Contract completion:

  • In the Pit of Death Contract, dropping a soul counts identically to picking one up; so, dropping and picking up souls repeatedly counts rapidly towards the Collect haunted souls Bonus Objective.
  • In the Harvest Event Contract, killing a player with a weapon that causes stun (such as the Natascha, Loose Cannon) counts as killing a player scared by a ghost.
  • In the Helltower Contract, every player's touch of the Bombinomicon Point scores the contract points for the Reach the Bombinomicon in the Helltower Bonus Objective regardless of whether the player has already touched the point that round or completed that Bonus Objective. So, repeatedly touching and leaving the Bombinomicon Point in the same round can rapidly complete both the Bonus Objective and the Primary Objective.
