Festival of the Lost

Speak with Eva Levante in the Tower to get started. 👻🎃

Availability: October 17 – November 7, 2023

Access: Free Event

Resources: Official Webpage | Guide

This features Legend Haunted Sectors. This more challenging difficulty also has matchmaking available or the option to matchmake with your own team. The Haunted Sector location rotates between EDZ, Moon, Nessus, and Europa every 150 minutes. Legend difficulty also has a higher chance of dropping an Exotic Engram upon completion.

Reminder from Bungie: Festival of the Lost concludes at the weekly reset on November 7. Players should make sure they claim any completed objectives and available rewards from their Festival of the Lost Event Card prior to the conclusion of the event. The Event Card and any unclaimed rewards will no longer be available once the event ends. 

Here’s a look at the new armor sets available at Eververse during Festival of the Lost (1500 Silver or 6000 Bright Dust):

TWiD Highlights

Check out the full “This week in Destiny” on the Bungie website.

Costume Contest

There is currently three different way to have a chance of winning the AotW or MotW emblem, as well as the Hallowed Coronation emblem.

  1. “Keep it fun, keep it simple. Just work on something that will make you look scary, silly, and charming, then share it using the #ThreadsofFright hashtag on social media.”
  2. Send in your Pumpkin Carving creations.
  3. “Personalize yours (Hive Eris Mask cosplay) to make the most amazing version of Hive Eris, and then share it with us with the #HiveErisMask hashtag on social media.”

Bungie will announce their favorites and the winning in an upcoming TWID article. Check out the latest TWID for more details about this contest.

Update: Upcoming Sparrow Changes

Based on player input, Bungie aimed to make it easier for players to switch to different Sparrows without sacrificing performance in Season 23. This was achieved by enhancing regular Sparrows while preserving some of the unique features of AoT.

Changes coming in Season 23:

  • In most cases, players will start with the fastest speed, set at 190.
  • Health for Legendary and Exotic Sparrows now stands at 150, enhancing durability.
  • AoT retains unique benefits, including better fuel efficiency, reduced enemy aggression, and improved side-to-side boost.

Double Loot and Rank

In case you didn’t know, this week players earn double Nightfall rewards and reputation when playing Vanguard Playlist activities.

Checkmate Rumble

Available Now!

In Checkmate Rumble, players get a bit more health, but they don’t find special weapon ammo as often, and their abilities take longer to recharge. This makes the game more about strategy.

First, Checkmate Rumble will be available for a week, followed by three weeks of Control, and then Survival will finish the season. Here’s a look at changes coming in case you haven’t seen them yet.

Crota’s End Contest Mode Emblem

“On Tuesday, October 17, we fixed an issue where players who qualified for the Crota’s End Contest Mode emblem and earned the All For One Triumph did not receive the emblem after completion. Players who qualified should now see the emblem and associated Triumphs in-game. 

To qualify for the emblem and Triumph, players must have completed the Crota’s End raid and the Crota’s End Challenge mode within 48 hours of the raid’s release.”

Loot Pool Changes

The following weapons are leaving the Nightfall and Trials loot pools. Normal versions of these weapons will still be available through engram focusing but they will no longer drop from activities and their Adept versions won’t be obtainable.
