The Mafia Wars Halloween Loot Event went live today. As you do jobs, you will collect various Halloween Loot Items. If you collect all 7 Halloween Loot Items, you earn an "exclusive Halloween item" - which turns out to be an impressive addition to your Animal arsenal (see below)
The seven Loot items are, fittingly, Halloween costumes (these are Armor items).
The reward for collecting all 7 costumes is the Vampire Bat, with combined 101 stats:
With the exception of the Skeleton Costume, the costumes will definitely knock some lower-tier items off of your top-501 Armor list, on both the offense and defense side.
Getting as many as you can this weekend is a fun diversion from scrounging for Terracotta Tiles throughout Italy... or waiting for Mafia Wars Italy Regions 6, 7, and 8 to go live... or for Zynga to fix the bug with the Italy Boss fights where you're up against an opponent with 400,000 health!
