Destiny 2’s Festival of the Lost returns tomorrow

The highly suspicious old crone Eva Levante is about to return to the Tower in Destiy 2 and she’s got a big bag of candy for all the boys and girls. She’s a witch isn’t she? Come Bungie, just admit it.Anyway, while we wait for the moment she is unmasked we can enjoy The Festival of the Lost 2019, Destiny 2’s version of Halloween. The Tower will be decorated appropriately and Eva will have a new helmet and masks.

You can also earn a fully Masterworked 950 power Braytech Werewolf Legendary Auto Rifle, or create a version of it with random stats. The Haunted Forest is also back, a game mode that gives your fifteen minutes to “defeat the fiends, ghouls, and terrors that lie within.”

It wouldn’t be Halloween without costumes to Eververse as a range of spooky costumes including scary skeleton armour ornaments to Jack-O’-Lantern masks. The jet powered broomstick Sparrow is also returning.

Bungie have posted a full guide for the event which you can read below.

Participation Requirements

While all players are invited to participate in Festival of the Lost, new players* must first meet the following requirements:

  • Escape the Cosmodrome to unlock the Tower.
  • Achieve 770 Power.

Once new players have met the above requirements, they will receive a quest which directs them to speak with Eva Levante in the Tower Courtyard. After this quest has been completed, players will be granted access to explore the Haunted Forest and can earn Festival of the Lost rewards.

*Characters created before the launch of New Light do not have to achieve 770 Power to receive the Festival of the Lost quest.

The Haunted Forest

 

“A darkened instance of the Infinite Forest on Mercury. Descend into its depths with a fireteam, and see how far you can get before it disintegrates.”

In order to launch into the Haunted Forest after it has been unlocked, players must select the Haunted Forest node in the Tower destination map. Before launching, players must choose between two versions of the Haunted Forest:

Haunted Forest – Minimum Recommended Power 750

      • This standard version of the Haunted Forest features matchmaking, and will pair players until a Fireteam of three has been assembled.
      • PlayStation Plus/Xbox Live Gold is required in order for console players to access this version of the Haunted Forest.

Firewalled Haunted Forest – Minimum Recommended Power 750

    • In this version of the Haunted Forest, matchmaking is disabled. Players may enter the Haunted Forest solo, or with a pre-made Fireteam, but no additional team members will be matchmade into this activity.

Additionally, players may launch directly into the matchmade Haunted Forest from the Tower Courtyard by interacting with the Haunted Forest mission totem next to Eva Levante.

Once players have entered the Haunted Forest, they will have 15 minutes to clear branches, defeat Terrors, and collect both Candy and Chocolate Strange Coins. Players may then turn them in to Eva Levante in the Tower Courtyard for Festival of the Lost rewards.


Rewards from Eva Levante

 

“No longer an outfitter for heroes of the Tower, Eva now devotes her time to making sure Guardians enjoy seasonal events.”

Once players unlock access to the Haunted Forest, they can purchase bounties, masks, and other Festival of the Lost rewards from Eva Levante. Masks and rewards may be purchased using Candy and Chocolate Strange Coins, which can be earned by defeating enemies and completing activities during Festival of the Lost while a mask is equipped.

Festival of the Lost Mods

Once players have purchased the Masquerader’s Helmet from Eva Levante, they can equip masks as ornaments and apply Festival of the Lost armor mods. Festival of the Lost armor mods can only be applied to the Masquerader’s Helmet, and they are only active while in the Haunted Forest.

  • Significantly increased damage to all enemies.
  • Increases the drop chance of Heavy ammo on kill.

PLEASE NOTE!

Tooltips for Festival of the Lost mods indicate that their perks must be unlocked by defeating Terrors in the Haunted Forest. This is not true. Perk upgrades for Festival of the Lost mods will activate as soon as their mod is equipped, while players are in the Haunted Forest activity.

  1. Festival of the cost more like.

    If previous LTMs of Bungie’s are anything to go by, this will be an enormous grind that serves only as a way to get people to spend money on Eververse.
