Although the Scream Fortress page on the TF2 Official Website stated that the event would only last until November 8, 2010, the Haunted Halloween Gift stopped spawning at Mann Manor, and Halloween-only cosmetics ceased to be wearable at around November 8 at 8am GMT. However, Halloween-restricted items like the Spine-Chilling Skull, Voodoo Juju, and Noise Maker continued to be available at the Mann Co. Store throughout the day.

- Scream Fortress reintroduced the "Thriller" dance from Michael Jackson's Thriller as a taunt for all classes, originally introduced in the 2009 Haunted Hallowe'en Special. Taunting during the 2010 event would randomly chose between the standard weapon taunt and the Thriller taunt, even if no standard taunt existed for a weapon (for example, the Jarate). The taunt was turned off again at the conclusion of the event.
