Right now, you can drop into Call of Duty: Warzone and collect 16 pieces of limited-time loot apart of the game’s Haunting of Verdansk trick-or-treat event. By collecting all 16 pieces of loot, you should be rewarded with a new “Pumpkin Punisher” Grau blueprint.
However, some players are reporting that they have yet to receive their “Pumpkin Punisher” blueprint despite collecting every limited-time item. Co-Design Director of Multiplayer at Infinity Ward Joe Cecot has revealed that this bug will be fixed in the next big update but, for those who want the reward now, there may be a workaround.
A Potential Bug Fix For Warzone’s The Haunting Of Verdansk Trick-Or-Treat Event
Cecot suggests that all Call of Duty: Warzone players who are having issues with this bug could go through the trick-or-treat locations again to ensure that the game registers every box properly. Here’s how Cecot put it:
The painful workaround is to revisit each location. If an area is still playing the candy vfx then the reward wasn't logged properly. Keep opening in each area until the candy stops.
Also, Marc is correct. The post Halloween update will fix anyone in this state.

It’s not an easy workaround for Call of Duty: Warzone players but, at least it’s something that may help. Plus, it’s good to hear that Infinity Ward is working on a patch that’ll reward everyone who completed the scavenger hunt with the Grau blueprint. So, anyone who is struggling with this workaround or decides to just wait it out should receive their rewards sometime next month.
