Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost Guide - New Weapons, Gear, Haunted Forest Horde Mode

Here's everything you need to know about the Festival of the Lost in Destiny 2, including the new horde mode, new weapons, and the end date.

The Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost event has now ended, having concluded in early November 2018. We'll still be leaving this page here as a source of information on the event, in case it returns to Destiny 2 at some point in the future.

If you instead need a complete roundup of any additional content on the horizon for Bungie’s FPS, you’ll want to head over to our Destiny 2 DLC guide. It’s on this page that you can find a roundup of all past content and DLC drops for the game, as well as all the potential details on future expansion packs.

Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost Horde Mode

The biggest addition in the Festival of the Lost is a brand new horde mode, which takes place in the Haunted Forest, a new location for Destiny 2. This new horde mode thankfully includes matchmaking, so you won't have to go through Guided Games in order to get a team together.

Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost Rewards - Engrams, Weapons

It wouldn’t be a brand new Destiny 2 event without some new gear. Just below, we've compiled all the new gear items that we've found so far in the Festival of the Lost event.

Like the look of the weapon pictured just above? That's the Horror Story, and it's the most powerful and rare weapon to be featured in the Festival of the Lost event. For a walkthrough of how to get your hands on it, head over to our Destiny 2 Horror Story guide.

The Eververse Trading Co. is offering brand new Ephemeral Engrams during Festival of the Lost, which we can safely assume will be rewarding you with many of the new cosmetic items, like ships and Sparrows. You’ll be rewarded with a new Ephemeral Engram every time you level up (provided you’ve already hit the level cap).

Recently, Bungie have introduced the brand new Lost Cryptarch quest, which sees you embarking on a mission to uncover exactly what happened to a missing Cryptarch. For a full walkthrough of the quest, head over to our Destiny 2 Lost Cryptarch guide.

And with that, our complete guide on the Festival of the Lost event in Destiny 2 has concluded. As we mentioned previously, we’ll be updating this guide whenever any new details about the event are announced, but for now you can head over to our Destiny 2 Forsaken Exotics guide, which walks you through how to get your hands on some of the very best weapons in the game.
