Howdy y’all!

Get ready for some Tricks & Treats!
Count Dracuul has come to the Frontier with an invitation for his grand Halloween Party!

What’s it about? – Collect all of Dracuul’s lost Halloween pumpkins, and win 6 new tracks in the Frontier!

Note – The HALLOWEEN HUNT starts on 24th October, 2018 at 11:30AM GMT.

Introducing Count Dracuul…

https://s3.amazonaws.com/frontieronlinecontent/community/Dracula_UPD44.png

The lord of Darkness is all set to throw the grandest Halloween party, but there’s a situation!
While preparing for the big feast, Count Dracuul lost some of the pumpkins as they managed to flee his Castle.

The celebrations cannot begin without these pumpkins, so what you’ve gotta do is find all of them and in return you’ll get 6 brand-new tracks!

How do I collect pumpkins?

https://s3.amazonaws.com/frontieronlinecontent/community/Pumpkin_UPD44.png

You are given 5 tracks every few hours to hunt for pumpkins, and one of those tracks is guaranteed to have a hidden pumpkin on it.

You are rewarded with track pieces for brand-new tracks after finding a certain number of pumpkins, over the course of the event!

Pumpkins can be collected even after you crash and some of them are in extremely crafty locations. Keep your eyes peeled to avoid missing out!

Additionally, you may get bonus pumpkins on the Loot Wheel immediately after collecting pumpkins on the tracks and they’ll be added to your stockpile!

More pumpkins equal more track pieces, so get huntin’!


Pssst … Get a Hint!

In case you're having a hard time finding pumpkins on these tracks, you can purchase hints (for 15 gems each), which reveal tracks that definitely do not contain any pumpkins.

You may purchase up to 4 hints per hunt.

It doesn’t get any easier than this!

The Pumpkin Leaderboard

Check out how many pumpkins have been collected by the Riders in the Frontier on the Pumpkin Leaderboard!
You’ll be able to see your rank on the Pumpkin Leaderboard, and the top 5% of the riders will get ‘Domino Dash’ – a challenging new track!

The Rewards!

- 5 New Tracks!
- 2 Classic Outfits – Pumpkin King, Headhunter
- 2 Classic paintjobs – Bronco ‘Kaleidoscope’ Paintjob, Mantis ‘Mithril’ Paintjob
- 1 Exclusive track for the Top 5% in the overall event

New event, same old bugs.

Seriously, it's been years, and there's still the countdown bug where it just immediately resets the clock when you open the game. So now you have to wait another six hours to play...

Pumpkin #1 was on Hinged Pathway
Couldn't find #2. Anybody have the coordinates? Hope it not on Infected Cavern. I only have Riptide and it can't make the 3rd jump.

So my track reset clock went from 6hrs to 24hrs once I hit the second set of tracks. Found that pumpkin and the timer went back to 6hrs. Is that just a glitch or is it gonna be a regular pattern? Also I wish that once you found the pumpkin that it would let you to the next one in a shorter time.

Under the falling ledge after the waterwheel. You'll need to crash after the checkpoint so the ledge resets, then you need to somehow fall down this gap.

Did you eventually find it? I've seen the pumpkin location on Tanktops in a YouTube video, but it's not there (near the end by the tallest tower).

I found it in Pinball Pains completely by chance (the part with several rolling barrel things, fell between the first & second i think it was and got rolled below the platform) it was practically invisible, just got lucky. Not sure if itís the same for everyone though.

At least now pumpkins seem to be visible on the track, not like the last time when we have to fall in every gap, because there was an item to pick.

Agreed. Twice in three days killed my motivation and excitement about the game. Iíve enjoyed these hunts, but Iím not interested in spending a ton of diamonds just to work around this bug.

Well, it cannot be anywhere else for me as I used all my hints, so this is the only level I can hunt for pumpkin on.

EDIT: Sorry, the pumpkin I mentioned is for the Rowdy Roofing track.
The pumpkin is below the falling ledge/platform past the second check point. Basically, the way I got it was I got to the next check point, this helps with the platform staying open and not landed as you go through it. Fall at an inverted angle on the round axle. This if done correctly propels the rider backwards out of the screen and you get the pumpkin.

It is a hit or a miss trick and you need to keep trying. Have got that thing twice now.

Another difficult one is on the Broken Skull track. Its past the midway on the track. The way I get it is by dangling the bike on its rear wheel at the ledge and then fall down doing a front flip. I must admit some pumpkins are hard to get. I have had another one at the beginning of the track(can't recall which track). You have to reverse at the beginning of the track to get it.

yup, it pops up a looooooooooot

noticed it because the track is a pain in the butt

Honestly, I can't find one pumpkin. I have every bike, been playing for years, know the tracks well... nothing ever appears. At first I thought they were just well hidden, but after seeing some screenshots, I'm at a loss.

So it's not just me. That track IS a pain for this type of event. Ugh.

Just found my most difficult one to find. Distilled Hops. Almost at the very end you back up to where your tire just enters the end of a pipe barely sticking up. Can't really see the glow, but after spending the 60 gems it had to be on that map and took several tries to find that location.

Got it three times in a row yesterday. And twice the pumpkin was in the same location, just before the end of the track.

Tip: For those concerned if there is a sound when we get the pumpkin. The answer is Yes, it plays a sound when you get it. In the attempts that I had so far the pumpkin was visible, not hidden in gaps where you have to deliberately fault.

Encountered another difficult pumpkin on Toxic Garden.

This was right after the last checkpoint between the two mushrooms below the swinging pipe. The bike used was Mantis (I prefer the agile bikes for all hunts).
The trick I tried was to get the front half of the bike on the swinging pipe. Accelerate in such a way that your rear wheel grips the top of the first mushroom, this helps in pushing the pipe. This is the easier part, the hard part for me was to somehow land between the two mushrooms and get the pumpkin. As the pumpkin is very close the stem of the first mushroom makes it very hard to get. The bike may get stuck and wedged which stops you from falling down or you may land towards the bottom of the second mushroom.

A bit hard to spot this one and even harder to get. :)

What happens when you click the "Claim All Rewards" button? Does it reset your pumpkin count to 0 if you click it?

No it will just add the rewards you have earnt so far into your inventory.

Chops6969
11-01-2018, 10:39 PM
Thanks for the info. I should have tried claiming rewards earlier. Iíve got around 180 pumpkins now and I was afraid of having to start back at zero if I claimed the rewards now.

Chops6969
11-02-2018, 05:11 AM
When you find a pumpkin and finish the track what determines whether you get a bronze(2), silver(6), or gold(12) pumpkin reward on the prize wheel? Is it random? Or is it determined by the difficulty of finding the hidden pumpkin? It doesn’t seem to be tied to the medal you receive, as I've gotten gold or platinum medals for the race and bronze or silver pumpkin rewards on the prize wheel. Also, is there a platinum pumpkin reward? So far I've only seen bronze, silver, & gold.

I liked this Halloween event, but now I'm one of all the players who have the timer restarting automatically without letting me hunt for the pumpkin. I get a notification that it is time to hunt for the pumpkin and when I choose to activate the hunt the timer is already restarting the count down. This has happened about 10 times and I'm so tired of this. Why does Ubisoft want to torture the gamers/customers? You will own me at least the final track Domino Dash. But do you care?

Chops6969
11-03-2018, 09:33 PM
I too have experienced the dreaded pumpkin hunt timer reset, but I'm not complaining because Iíve seen it both ways. Iíve had it reset to 6 hours when I should have a new pumpkin to hunt, AND Iíve had it give me a new hunt when I should have had to wait.

Question - Iíve read a few tips and tricks articles that suggest changing the time on your device. They were only talking about re-filling your fuel tank though. Has anyone whoís experienced the pumpkin hunt timer reset tried this?

I'm not sure here but if I keep skipping the timer I see less bonus pumpkins or no pumpkins. If I wait for the timer then I see bonus pumpkins. I didn't test this out at all but maybe it's right...maybe it's wrong. I dunno. Right now I'm skipping the timer and getting zero bonus pumpkins. I'm not spending more just to get one pumpkin when I need another 30 or 40 more. That's a lot of gems wasted. I'll wait for the timer to finish to hopefully get the 12 and 6 packs of pumpkins to finish quicker and cheaper. The 6hr timer is just ridiculous.

Just did. No effect on the pumpkin timer. Changing the time was something we did in the early years of this game. Since they fixed it it's never been usable.

Chops6969
11-05-2018, 12:22 AM
I've encountered the same thing - spend 20 gems to start a new hunt and only get 2 or 6 bonus pumpkins on the prize wheel. Wait 6 hours and have a much better chance of getting 6 or 12. I'm pretty sure the bonus pumpkins are completely random. I can confirm that the number has nothing to do with which medal you receive OR the difficulty of finding the hidden pumpkins.

If anyone has any additional info Iíd love to hear it.

hello,

does anyone have a trick to catch the pumpink of Bayou boatride track? (Bayou Auloncours en franÁais)
I found it under a rooftop and 'protected' by explosive barrels.

I got it once by chance after dozens and dozens of tries.
Now I have it again (2nd time i a row!) and i'm stuck (or it is the same because of the maintenance of the day...)

I have used the donkey bike for this as it is more twitchy. I agree this is difficult as you have to reverse wheelie for this. Got this after a couple of attempts. You will have to keep trying. I believe the outfit doesn't matter as long as it is a slim one, unlike the Squirrel outfit.

Got it once by going forward past the bridge, and falling on the rotating wheel, which throws your back under the bridge..
Only got it once like this though, after trying 100+ times by just reversing.
A painful one..

I'm stuck getting the Broken Skull pumpkin. Even when I manage to flip and get close to it, I seem to bounce off a box near the pumpkin. Any other hints on how to get it? Thanks.
EDIT: Finally got it after many tries on the AppleTV. I was trying earlier on the iPad where the box was interfering making it seemingly impossible.
