Destiny 2’s Halloween event, the Festival of the Lost returns once again. And this year, it will be different because of the removal of Mercury and Haunted Forest.
This will be the first event after the mid-point of the story of season 14. Now, there is a new activity called Haunted Lost Sectors. To access the activity, players must select the Haunted Lost Sector node in the Tower Destination map once it is unlocked. Additionally, players may launch directly into the matchmade Haunted Lost Sector from the Tower Courtyard by interacting with the Haunted Sector mission totem next to Eva Levante.
Once players unlock access to Haunted Lost Sectors, they can purchase bounties, masks, and other Festival of the Lost rewards from Eva Levante. Masks and rewards may be purchased using Candy, which can be earned by defeating enemies and completing activities during Festival of the Lost while a mask is equipped.
This year’s Festival of the Lost also brings with it a new vendor, the Book of the Forgotten. The Book of the Forgotten contains new lore, which can be purchased with Manifested Pages. Manifested Pages are created from Spectral Pages, which are earned in Haunted Lost Sectors, and are created by defeating Headless Ones in Haunted Lost Sectors.
During Festival of the Lost, Eva Levante offers 6 masks that players may purchase for Candy. Furthermore, masks earned during previous Festival of the Lost events can also be equipped by players who had earned them. All masks must be equipped as ornaments on the Masquerader’s Helmet, which is offered by Eva Levante at the cost of 100 Glimmer.
There are two returning and one new gun to grind for alongside the Dino armor which was polled by the fans last summer. Braytech Werewolf and Horror’s Least return with the introduction of the new Jurassic Green Pulse.
Just like any event, this brings a break to the season story between Mara Sov and Savathûn which has reached its mid-point. Leaving us with a new activity to play before we get the 30th Anniversary Pack.
Festival of the Lost is free for all players and will be active from October 12th to November 2nd.
