This guide will show you how to earn the Halloween trophy and ID Badge during the Phasmophobia 2023 Halloween event. It will also provide information on where to find all the pumpkin cards and ingredients and how to put together the formula.
The 2023 Halloween event begins on October 26th and lasts for approximately 2 weeks. When you successfully complete the event, you will receive both a Halloween trophy and an ID card badge.
During the event, you’ll need to explore different maps and find special glowing jack-o’-lanterns. These lanterns hold recipe cards inside their mouths, which you must gather before making your escape. It’s essential to collect all the check marks on these recipe cards because you can’t simply skip this step and use the recipe mentioned in this guide immediately.
6 Tanglewood Drive
You can locate the jack-o-lantern in the dining room. It’s situated along the left wall, positioned underneath a bench.
42 Edgefield Road
The jack-o-lantern can be discovered on the second floor, specifically in the blue bedroom, which is also where you find the voodoo doll. To find this bedroom, go to the end of the hall on the right just before reaching the master bedroom. You’ll spot the jack-o-lantern positioned between the desk and the bed in this room.
10 Ridgeview Court
You’ll come across the jack-o-lantern in the basement, on the left side, resting on some shelves.
The jack-o-lantern at Grafton Farmhouse is a bit different. You won’t find it inside the building but in the pumpkin patch behind the house. Stay on the right path along the side of the house, and you’ll reach the patch on the right, where a scarecrow is located. On the left side of this group of pumpkins, you’ll discover the jack-o-lantern.
13 Willow Street
The jack-o-lantern at 13 Willow Street is not inside the house; you’ll find it outside near the bottom of the driveway.
On this map, the jack-o-lantern is located in the attic. When you reach the top of the stairs, go to the right, and you’ll spot it next to some boxes and miscellaneous items.
You can find the jack-o-lantern in the security room, which is just outside of the cafeteria. It’s placed on a table near the window, straight back from the entryway.
Maple Lodge Campsite
Maple Lodge Campsite has its own jack-o-lantern and recipe card that you must collect before crafting the final formula. You can locate it in the first room to the left when you enter the site, known as Campsite A. It’s situated around the campfire between some benches.
The jack-o-lantern on Camp Woodwind is easily spotted as soon as you enter the site. Take a left immediately after passing through the gates, and you’ll discover it on the ground, right next to the picnic benches.
Crafting the Formula
After you’ve gathered all the recipe cards and they have green check marks on top of the pumpkin stickers on the map selection screen, return to Maple Lodge Campsite.
It’s a good idea to do this on custom difficulty because you’ll need to move back and forth across the map, collecting various items, and it’s easier without the worry of the ghost. In the ghost settings, enable the “friendly ghost” option to ensure the ghost won’t hunt you. I also recommend increasing the player speed to the maximum (150%) under the “player” options.
Now, head to the campsite on the left side of the map, known as Campsite A. There, you’ll find a cauldron above the campfire. This is where you’ll deposit all of the ingredients, which you can find scattered around the map, as shown in the image below.
Bowl of Grins (x1)
To find this, go to the cabin by the lake and enter the kitchen. You can unlock the cabin by picking up the key under the welcome mat at the front door. On the countertop in the kitchen, you’ll find a bowl full of loose teeth. Collect it and bring it to Campsite A.
Death’s Rot (x3)
When you enter the site, head to the right, near the wood chopping area. You’ll see an open crate spilling out rotten fruit. Pick up the three apples on the left side and bring them to Campsite A. Be cautious when placing them down, as they might roll due to the uneven terrain.
Toe of Frog (x1)
To get the Toe of Frog, enter the reception building straight ahead from spawn. You’ll find a frog plushie on the main desk. Pick it up and bring it to Campsite A.
Sack of Beans (x3)
The Sacks of Beans are actually bean bags from the bags/cornhole game set in Campsite A. You can find them on the activities table directly across from the campfire/cauldron.
Light in the Dark (x1)
This ingredient refers to the flashlight equipment you bring into the contract from the truck/van. The flashlight should be part of your default equipment. You can use a tier 1, 2, or 3 flashlight. Consider bringing an extra flashlight into the contract to have a backup light source when you sacrifice your primary one at Campsite A.
Jar of Mind (x1)
The Jar of Mind is a brain floating in a glass container. You can find it in the entryway of the reception building, along the left wall on a table next to the couch. Bring this item to Campsite A.
Screaming Skull (x1)
The Screaming Skull looks different from the bone evidence skull. It still has some flesh on it and prominent front teeth. You can locate it in the Campsite B area, straight behind the reception building where the totem pole is. It’s sitting on a wooden stump close to the fire pit. Pick it up and bring it to Campsite A.
Love’s Blossom (x1)
You need to find a specific flower down by the lake. Near the cabin, there are two chairs facing the water with skeletons sitting in them. One of the skeletons is holding the flower you need. Bring it back to Campsite A.
Eye of Bears (x2)
If you head to the bathroom building located behind Campsite A, the room on the right side (the male bathroom) contains two loose eyeballs found in the sink closest to the door. Collect them and bring them to Campsite A. Be cautious when placing these items down, as they may roll due to the uneven terrain.
How to Assemble
To assemble the formula, gather all the required ingredients and start adding them to the cauldron. You don’t have to put them all in at once; you can add them one by one as you find them. However, adding any item that isn’t one of the listed ingredients will cause the green goo to boil away, and you won’t be able to complete the event in that contract. In such a case, you’ll need to extract and return to Maple Lodge Campsite to spawn a new cauldron and collect the correct ingredients again.
When you put in the last ingredient, a series of spirits will be released from the cauldron into the air. Afterward, a giant red skull will appear in the sky above the site, and the sky will take on a red hue. At this point, you’ve essentially completed the event, and you just need to extract.
Upon returning to the lobby, you’ll notice that your trophy case now includes the Halloween 2023 Trophy, and you can customize your ID card background and badge from the main selection screen.
