Hyper Dash - Spooky Update
The Spooky Update is now live! The map voting screen has been extended with a Halloween Event. This sets up the crater map (which is set at night) with a few new mutators to set you in the right spooky mood! There are also new mutators, including Mist, Vampire, and Pumpkin Heads. Mist sets up the map with a thick layer of fog and makes it difficult to see long distance. Vampire gives you back 50% of the HP that you take from opponents. And Pumpkin Head starts you with a pumpkin on your head—which allows you to get headshotted once without taking damage.
