This year's Halloween event brings out a cauldron where you can complete a recipe to get the secret Halloween trophy and badge. To do that, you have to find nine pumpkins scattered across different maps in the game. After that, you have to get the ingredients listed on these pumpkins and put them in the cauldron to create your recipe and get the rewards.
