Old church bells have begun to ring, once-occupied graves now lay empty, and never-before-seen creatures of the night have risen from their slumber for one sole purpose: to be shot!


A Halloween-inspired take on the traditional Mann vs Machine dynamic, Operation Hexadecimal Horrors features 48 brand new missions spread across more than 10 new, returning, and spookified maps! The campaign will run until November 30th, so don't wait! Servers are available in North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia.
