Halloween Special

Easter Eggs

This level's "side area" is different from the others because it was a Halloween special back in the early access. The good news is the developer decided to keep it as a permanent component of the game. To access it, first use the indented part  of the rock formation next to the skeleton at the super secret location.  In doing so, the themed room behind is revealed.

Enter, shoot the hourglass found inside and then exit by returning to the room in front of the red keycard pedestal. To change the level to its Halloween counterpart, pass through the freshly opened gate and touch the portal.

As you progress through the level, keep an eye out for tickets as you carve your way through since they are needed for the minigames, facing the unique boss and purchasing the themed rune for the advanced weapons on offer.

A Guide in the Beginning



At this stage, you ought to get your first katana throw kill. Following that, you will need to do that a lot more times, but you don't need to rush.

You can go back to the level(s) of your choice and grind for the last few kills even if you don't get Throwing Master at the conclusion of your run.

Skull Plate

You can then follow the next step which is to destroy the crates beneath the wooden walkway around the next corner, then crawl through the gap to find another hidden alcove.
