The Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 event has now drawn to close, marking the third year that the event has run in October. In this Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 guide, we'll still be running through all the details of the past event, just in case it returns for a fourth successive year in 2019.
We have a wealth of additional guides on Overwatch here at USgamer, all of which can be found in our Overwatch guides hub, including guides on how to perfect your playstyle as your favorite hero, as well as how to earn Loot Boxes as quickly as possible.
2018 is the third year in a row that the Halloween Terror event has come to Blizzard's hero shooter. If the starting time for the event was anything to go by, the end time for the 2018 Halloween Terror event should be right around 10 am PT/1 pm ET, on October 31.

As we previously mentioned, this is the third year in a row that the Halloween Terror event has featured in Overwatch. As per usual, all past skins that were available in 2016 and 2017 are back once again, and you can find the complete list of Halloween-themed skins just below.
A mode that was originally introduced in the 2017 version of the Halloween event is the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode. It's back for the second year in a row with the Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 event, and basically puts a twist on the standard version of Junkenstein's Revenge.
In the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode, all four players will have to team up to survive against 12 total waves of Zomnics (Omnics, but zombified), including several boss characters. You might be familiar with the likes of Roadhog, Mercy, Junkrat, and Reaper as bosses throughout the 12 waves, but this time Symmetra will also make an appearance, in her brand new Legendary Halloween Skin.
The characters that the four players can choose from are Soldier: 76, McCree, Torbjorn, Widowmaker, Ana, Zenyatta, and Genji. We'd recommend having at least one healer on your team for the Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode, as well as Torbjorn, who can prove particularly useful when you place his turret right outside the castle gates.
Once all 12 waves of the mode have been completed, Zomnics and boss characters alike will begin to spawn at a rapid rate, and at this point you can see multiple Roadhogs and Reapers at the same time. You'll have to hold them all off for as long as you can, but should all of your team be killed at the same time, Junkenstein's Revenge Endless mode will come to a close.
This is all the information we have on the Overwatch Halloween Terror 2018 event right now, but make sure to check out any or our additional Overwatch guides here at USgamer, including how to earn loot boxes quickly, as well as a guide to the best Overwatch heroes in each class.
