Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost: Halloween Dates, Start Times, Rewards & Events
Destiny 2 gets scary and scary with the return of the Halloween event
Festival of the Lost, Destiny 2’s first big seasonal event in Year 3, is almost here and will be available to all Destiny 2 players. The annual Halloween-themed in-game event returns this week with a host of familiar elements from the past, including masks for Halloween to unlock, candy to earn to buy stuff, and a new exclusive automatic rifle rewarded for taking over the horrors of the event. Here are all the details on what to expect after the event starts on October 29th.
Bungie has detailed the festival on its blog, which gives some details on its new activities and loots that you can pursue by participating. It kicks off with a weekly reset on October 29th, and players return to the eerie version of Mercury’s Infinite Forest again. Called a haunted forest, your goal is to get as far as possible in 15 minutes. If last year’s event keeps anything going, you will face several frightening enemies hunting you as you try to kill as many enemies as possible and kill the big boss in the end. Last year, kills helped extend your timer to keep your run for as long as possible, with the best rewards based on how far you could travel in the forest.
Bungie’s Festival Guide also suggests that Horror returns this year. These are super-tough Hive enemies that hunt you almost endlessly as you run through the Haunted Forest, adding the whole slasher movie vibe to the movie. Bungie also warns that you will want to “beware of what comes at the end.”
Your greatest reward for clearing out the Haunted Forest is the Brightck Werewolf Automatic Rifle, an exclusive reward that will only be available during Festival of the Lost. As for Bungie, you’ll first earn a master version of the automatic rifle, which drops out on the 950 Power soft cap when you fulfill your requirements – most likely by completing a rather difficult quest. Once you get one version of the Werewolf, you can earn new random weapon rolls to try and find your favorite version.
Upon entering the forest and completing the Festival of the Lost rewards, you will receive Chocolate Strange Coins that you can then spend on special Festival rewards. These include a variety of different character masks that you can wear over the helmet you earned during the festival. This year all the masks are Masquerader helmet ornaments that you will receive from the seller Eva Levante, which means that you can wear them without much loss of power like in previous years. You will find five new masks from Eve, and if you have masks from Festival of the Lost 2018, you can put them on.
The Halloween event also has its own Eververse rewards, most of which take on the talent of David S. Pumpkins with a skeletal theme. You can get glowing skeletal armor for your characters, as well as a skeletal pterodactyl. There are some funny and creepy ghost projectiles in the turn, as well as Spooky – a sparrow that can be ridden like a broomstick as if you were heading to Space Hogwarts.
Just like last year, Festival of the Lost will feature its own set of special Triumphs to clear during the three-week event. There are also a few Festival-specific mods that can give you an edge in the Haunted Forest, such as Vampiric Touch, which gives you health regeneration on precision kills, and Energetic Assassin, which gives you precise kills, grenades, and melee energy. You will only be able to use these mods during the festival, so make sure you unlock them and equip them early for the best results.
Festival of the Lost is open to all players, including the free version of New World in Destiny 2. To access the Haunted Forest, you must have at least 770. A power that’s pretty little and readily available with little land, even if you’re new to the game. The Festival of the Lost begins on October 29th and lasts three weeks until November 19th
