How do you get Mystery Candy?
There are three ways you can obtain Mystery Candy. First, you can buy it from vendors in train stations, such as Berkeley Springs Station and Charleston Station. Second, you can collect it from player-owned Spooky Candy Bowls. These can be found at player C.A.M.P.s with an orange Jack-O'-Lantern icon. They emit a faint sound, making them easier to locate. You can only collect a Mystery Candy from the same player's bowl once an hour, however.
Finally, you can get Mystery Candy by killing Spooky Scorched, which spawn throughout the map at certain locations. These enemies will only spawn during the Halloween event, so make sure to pick up some Mystery Candy early. Here is a guide for the Spooky Scorched spawn locations and rates.
