Holiday Event 2019

A new drug is hitting the streets of San Paro, will you be able to resist the scourge that is… “Holiday Cheer?” Those brave enough to try and resist the hallucinogenic properties of this powerful drug and fight to keep the kids safe from all that is merry can head to Beacon straight away! Be on the lookout for the Prince of Pushers… The Nutcracker Prince, with his “snow ball” launcher full of “Holiday Cheer.” Will you become dosed and join his army of tweaking Nutcrackers, or fight valiantly to keep this menace off the streets? Either way you’ll be earning new rewards!

Let’s explore what’s in store when the 2019 Holiday Events run from December 23 through January 15!

The rules for the event are simple:

  • Find the pure “Holiday Cheer” snowman in the holiday version of Beacon to become the Nutcracker Prince and start the event (Timer Starts).
  • The Nutcracker Prince must “dose” (kill) other players to convert them to their Nutcracker Army (Nutcracker Soldiers). NOTE: The Nutcracker Prince and Nutcracker Soldiers will see all “non-dosed” players as the Sugar Plum Fairy.
  • Nutcracker Soldiers must also “dose” (kill) other players to recruit them into the Nutcracker Army.
  • Sugar Plum Fairies (Survivors) must avoid being “dosed” (killed) until the time runs out (Timer Ends).

NOTE: Survivors blip on the Nutcracker Army's radar when the bell tolls, signifying that the “Holiday Cheer” Event is coming to an end...keep fighting, running or hiding to survive.

Console Holiday Event 2019

The Elves are back, making mischief and giving away gifts. Beacon will be returning this year bringing with it some fun, holiday themed events.
