Pumpkin Head Loot and Accessory

The Jack-o’-Lantern Tactical Pumpkin Helmet can be found randomly on scavs on any map, it provides somewhat poor stats and provides most of its value from being a fun cosmetic you can wear on your head.

As far as the lootable pumpkin stashes go, they can be found like any other crate on any map; however, you must extract from the raid with one in your inventory in order to loot them. Upon opening, you destroy the item and are given the rewards. Virtually always, the player will simply receive an extensive amount of consumables: foods and medications.

Although, there probably is a very small chance of something legendary dropping…
