Special Events

Special events are a relatively new concept, they were first introduced on Valentine's Day 2018. Below is a table with all these events bundled together. These also often go accompanied with Community events hosted by Staff or one of the NPC's.

Note: These Special Events are announced in a Newspaper article at least a couple of days before starting. Make sure to be on the look out to know the exact starting time!

Torn's Community Events

These are other events that used to or are still being ran by Torn, or are notable community events.


  • Halloween:

Halloween, which was previously when the Hamster event was organized, is now home to all kinds of Community Events run by Torn's Staff, Leslie, and Duke. This is one of the periods best known to earn yourself the "Champion" honor bar, or any other Collectibles / Awards.

  • Christmas:

Similar to Halloween we get several weeks filled with Community Events, which can also earn you the "Champion" honor bar, or any of the many other Collectibles / Awards.

  • URT

An originally player made tournament, which caught the eye of Chedburn / Sugarvalves, making it into a huge repeated event with cool unique prizes, designed especially for this event! You can find more information here

  • Various Daily Events:

As mentioned in the daily events section, there are several daily events, which also have a few Community Events. However, these are more rare.


  • Hamster:

This used to be a massive giveaway hosted on IRC happening on both Halloween and Christmas, with the dropping popularity of IRC in 2016 it was decided to try and do it on Torn's chat system but attempts to recreate the event failed and it has since been discontinued, perhaps it will happen again now that Torn's Discord is created.

  • Body's $1 sales

This used to be an annually returning $1 sale hosted by Body. Sadly the event died together with their activity.

  • World Population Day

In 2018, the experience point bonus was applied in triple, and only those who left corpses to rot in the streets were able to earn it. However, in 2019, the bonus was reduced to a mere doubling of XP, although the attacking requirements were broadened to also include hospitalizations and muggings.
