It's October, and you know what that means -- All Hallows' Eve! This year, developer Rockstar Games are celebrating the spooky month with a new Halloween Event called Judgement Day, heading to Los Santos with the 6th October 2022 GTA Online Weekly Reset.
The limited-time mode is interesting, to say the least, resembling a deathly hide-and-seek-type game mode. This guide details everything you need about Judgement Day, the new GTA Online Halloween Event in 2022.
What Is Judgement Day In GTA Online?
Per Rockstar Games' official blog post on 6th October 2022, Judgement Day is described as a "new Adversary Mode that pits a small team of powerful Riders against a vulnerable group of Hunted." The GTA Online Halloween Event is similar to hide-and-seek, only deadlier.

How To Play Judgement Day GTA Online Halloween Event
Participants in the limited-time event will be divided into two factions: Riders and Hunted. The objective is simple: Riders must track and eliminate the Hunted, while the Hunted must survive through dawn or kill all the Riders in the final Sudden Death minute.
Riders will start the round on an LLC Sanctus (worth GTA$ 1,995,000), equipped with extra health, speed, a Double Barrel Shotgun, and Stone Hatchet. In addition, Riders can enjoy a few abilities to help them find the Hunted during GTA Online's Judgement Day Halloween Event.
These abilities include a brief burst of thermal vision, heartbeat sense, and health regeneration when near their Sanctus. They will also deal bonus damage and respawn if downed before the final minute.
It's also worth noting that the Hunted won't be entirely defensive during the GTA Online Halloween Event.
Hunted can find various weapons on the map, which won't be accessible to Riders. "While killing a Rider won't be an easy task, it's the only way to bring a fallen teammate back into the fray for a crucial bit of back-up - though resurrections are disabled in the final minute," Rockstar noted.
Finally, the Hunted should listen for audio cues; however, they must be careful not to get too close. "A fire will consume any Hunted who comes within breathing distance of a Rider," Rockstar concluded.
That concludes our guide on how to play the 2022 Halloween Event "Judgement Day" in GTA Online.
