Monster Bash is a community-created Player Destruction Halloween map released during the Scream Fortress 2018 update. It is set in a Gothic castle, centered around a large reanimator machine. A portrait of Dr. Cadaverus Hale is set in the Grand Foyer.

The objective for this map is to gather buckets of gibs to bring to the reanimator in the middle of the castle. A team wins upon successful delivery of a set number of gibs.

Monster Bash was contributed to the Steam Workshop.


The delivery point is surrounded by a shield for a set period of time. After a set amount of time, the shield disappears, and it is possible to step onto the point and Gibs may be delivered by the team controlling the Delivery Zone. Once the delivery period is over, players are forced off the point and the forcefield goes back up.

The Pit is in the center of the map, under the delivery point in The Lab. Rather than killing players, it leads to a secret area. In this area, players perpetually take damage and must jump through a hallway of Pendulum blades to escape. If they can manage to escape, they are placed at the top of the pit and are granted with temporary crits and a spell.

Like several other Halloween maps, this map features Magic spells for the players to pick up, in the form of filled flasks.
