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.

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