Terraria Halloween Update 1.2

Terraria Halloween Update 1.2.1 - Pumpkin Moon

The Pumpkin Moon is an event similar to the Frost MoonSolar Eclipse and Blood Moon where there are multiple enemies targeting you. The event is summoned with a Pumpkin Moon Medallion at night.

The Pumpkin Moon will end at 4:30 and most enemy mobs will flee. There seems to be a greatly increased chance of a Solar Eclipse or a Pirate Invasion occurring on the day following a Pumpkin Moon (1/20).

Event Waves

  • In the event, mobs are spawned according to waves(see below). The mobs coming in the wave are announced in the bottom left of the screen, like any other event-related message.
  • The waves seems to change when a certain number of monsters are defeated.
  • Higher waves seem to increase enemy drop rates.
  • Wave 15 is an endless wave. When an enemy is defeated in that wave, it will respawn instantly.
  • The mobs spawned in each wave are listed below:

Item Drops

Bugs

  • If a Pumpkin Medallion is used at a certain time during a Blood Moon, the Medallion may be consumed without the Pumpkin Moon being summoned. (Unconfirmed)
  • ​Very rarely, Mourning Woods may drop stakes but not the stake launcher. This is more common in the mobile version.
