Halloween achievements/ update
So I just noticed that a new achievement popped up in the list. As the Mark mask one, it's still a secret, but it involves doing (or something) ten times

Link to screencap: http://puu.sh/4XlZb/7ffcfbb2df.png



Edit: "?" has been split up into ten different achievements with rather cryptic descriptions, but that's what Overkill likes to do for events

Edit 2 (29th. October): The "progression" achievements had their values changed. I think it's suspicious that two achievements had their value changed to "666". Particularly easy tasks, or a hint?

Also

The achievements were updated 30 minutes, the testing depot was updated 3 times today, and the last update was 1 hour ago.

Edit 3: Halloween Update revealed. It follows the Birthday Event's three day unlock system, meaning we get the revealed stuff at Thursday. Check in every day to see what we'll get at http://www.overkillsoftware.com/halloween/

Just found out how to activate the music click the pumpkin face! Also click the tip of the shotgun to take you to their twitter page? Also the new gun slide activates the music

Edit 4 (30th. October): Four more achievements without descriptions have been added, going "First Nightmare" to "Fourth Nightmare". Furthermore, the second reward has been revealed to be four masks and six patterns

Edit 5 (31st. October): Halloween Update is live now with the last day revealing the mask inventory increase and the achievements

Halloween or DLC achievement perhaps?

Hopefully, as that would mean either is coming soon

Might be revealed with the end of the birthday-EXP-Bonus... who knows, maybe that patch contains more than just the old EXP and acutally adds stuff? After all, Halloween is very soon, so a Halloween Event should be likely to start within the next seven days.

Makes sense really, let's hope that'll be the case. Also, a friend of mine had the idea of it maybe involving killing ten Cloakers/Spooks. Far fetched guess, but at this point, it could be anything

i say it's about either finding 10 hidden pumpkins on different maps or shooting 10 pumpkin doozers with the chimano 88

I don't think they will build achievements for unique events...?
Or is the bear mask achievement not possible to get after birthday event? ...
(not in the loot-pool for all who not joined the group?)

That would be unfair achievements which cant be unlocked by later customers...

It only says that you have to be in the Payday 2 official group, so I'd say it'd still be able to be obtained after the event

Didn't change the achievement, so could be the Birthday event just ended and got patched out

That is exactly what I mean.

It cant be something like "i say it's about either finding 10 hidden pumpkins on different maps " ... because later customers also need the possibility to unlock these achievements.

I could be wrong, but isn't it still possible to get the Christmas presents in PAYDAY: The Heist for an achievement?

Yet, even if they made it unobtainable later on, they wouldn't be the first company to do that *looks over to Tripwire Interactive and Killing Floor*
