Halloween Terror 2020 has already begun and will run for the next few weeks, letting players earn special Epic Skins, Sprays and more from some of their favorite characters.

These new rewards, as well as cosmetic unlocks from previous events, will also be available during the event, so there will be plenty to do for players on PC, PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
