Festival of the Lost

Begins: October 17 at 10 AM PDT

Access: Free Event

A new engram has been introduced for Festival of the Lost called Eerie Engram. These engrams have two uses: players can open them individually for loot or save them to use as currencies for Hocus Focusing (engram focusing).

How to Earn Eerie Engrams?

Haunted Sectors completions have a chance to drop Eerie Engrams. Legend Haunted Sectors have a higher chance to drop these engrams.

Hocus Focusing

Eva Levante will offer Exotic Focusing like Rahool. Players will be able to acquire Exotic armor and Legendary Weapons through Eerie Engram focusing.


  • Weapons Eerie Engram
    • Festival weapons for a higher candy cost.
  • Exotic Arms Eerie Engram
  • Exotic Legs Eerie Engram
  • Exotic Helmet Eerie Engram
  • Exotic Chest Eerie Engram

New Memento

The Memento (shown below) will be dropping during Festival of the Lost this year (limited-time only).

TWiD Highlights

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


Some of the changes you can expect to see soon:

  • Adaptive Hand Cannons will once again 3-tap at any resilience.
  • Rapid-Fire Pulse Rifles will 3-burst at 6 resilience.
  • High-Impact Pulse Rifles will 2-burst at 4 resilience with all critical hits.
    • [Updated 10/12/2023 at 12:17 PDT]
  • Reduced Heavy ammo spawn frequency.

Bungie plans on having Checkmate in Crucible Labs for the remainder of the Season, which means Control and Survival is coming back for another round

Crucible Improvements

Bungie is making matchmaking faster by simplifying skill bands while still considering skill levels. They’re also addressing spawn issues, starting with Altar of Flame and Cauldron.

Season 23 Crucible Update Preview

  • Crucible playlist reorganization (including 3v3 rotation)
  • Competitive Crucible tweaks (weapon focus, rank changes, 3v3 Countdown Rush)
  • Refined Trials rewards (for streaks < 7)
  • Expanding Checkmate modes (Dominion, 3v3 Clash known as Skirmish) Stay tuned for more details!

The Craftening

All players who played between September 15 (Fri) at 9 AM PDT and September 21 (Thu) at 10 AM PDT will receive The Craftening emblem during Season 23.

Here’s a look at the new emblem (take a closer look and you’ll see the emblem has the Ammit auto rifle on it with a shotgun barrel to highlight the mayhem The Craftening brought).

Speed for All

Starting in Season 23, the Always on Time’s speed will be universal to all sparrows.

Check out TWID for more.

Until next time.
