This week at Bungie – 10/20/2022 > News
This week at Bungie, we got freaked out, Darling.
Every day is Halloween if you are brave enough. Or obsessed enough. Well, that’s enough judgment. We can feel it from here. Yes. Like we said, spooky season is officially in Season, which means it’s time to ditch those chicken masks and get out there for some haunted activity with Festival of the Lost. But why leave dressing up to guardians only when we can have a little fun in real life too? More on that in a bit, but we also have heads up on what’s leaving the gun range in the coming weeks and more on how to put these hidden costume ideas to good use. Since the last two TWABs had some better information, this one will be a lighter one so the Guardians can get there and give Space Grandma all the love it deserves without delay. Saint 14. Please give Saint-14 some rewards. deserve them…
Anyway, let’s start things off with Fest of the Lost, shall we?
Well, onwards ghost guardians!
It’s ‘Spooky Scary Skeleton’ time, which means it’s time to put on your favorite mask and devour those delicious candy while doing haunted activities aimed at putting the ‘stunt’ into trick-or-treat. Many of you have already started this search for spookidom, but for those of you who might be waiting until the end of the week to dive in, here’s a quick summary of what they can expect:
New equipment, which you can see in the great Lost Festival parade above:
- The legendary sniper rifle from Mechabre.
- The community’s (rightfully) chosen mechanical shield decoration set.
- New festival of lost event card.
- Similar to the Solstice event card, this includes free challenges and premium rewards for the most feared rangers.
- Includes a new expression, ship, Exotic Ghost, and some surprises.
The “Haunted Sectors” are also back for some EDZ adventures, where you’ll face hordes of Cabal who have taken the festivities a little too seriously. Along with a few familiar ones, a new haunted sector awaits for some Halloween goodies. Just don’t let these geeks fool you out of the things you love. Blow it up with Telesto instead, don’t let your dreams be dreams.
Wait, there’s more
You know we have some fun real-world challenges that we’d love to give you, too. Calling all artists! and we mean All Artists: cosplay, fibre, digital and food art artists – the sky is the limit, create what inspires you. But make sure you add the correct hashtag and @Destiny 2 official social channel for your region! If not, we may not see it. We’ll be giving away some pretty cool prizes for each region, so feel free to throw your talents on the hat to celebrate with the wider community!
And because we look to inspire all kinds of creatives, here are some goals and hashtags you’ll want to keep in mind:
- For scary art and movies of the week: #AOTW, #MOTW
- For the best Destiny 2 pumpkin carvings: #FotLPumpkin
- Do you have any good ideas for scaring destiny costumes? It’s time to shine with #ThreadsOfFright
Another note! if it was official An account that shares your work, you’ll be automatically eligible for special festive cosmetics with the Holy Coronation Logo:
We also have some IRL ways to get that festival hype up, including a Headless One T-shirt for those who complete the Bookworm 1 Event Challenge and a shiny new collectible Ghost Writer Pin for those who complete the stamp and title for this year’s Ghost-a-Thon. It’s Halloween. You just have to.
All good things must come to an end. Sure, this is a temporary end to loot pool cycles, but that’s neither here nor there. Here are the alerts for what will be leaving the loot collection for next season so you can get in there and give them everything you have for this pew pew good before they go:
- Undertaker Forge Pulse Rifle
- Riiswalker’s rifle
Trials of Osiris:
- Aisha’s Scout Rifle
- Red Linear Fusion Remorse Rifle
- silicone neuroma sniper rifle
- Automatic Duty Binding Rifle
You know what to do. Get out there and get what you want before a new wave of rewards awaits you. As next season approaches, we’ll be sharing more thoughts on the rewards and what players can expect over the coming months, but we also wanted to take a little moment to tease something we’re excited about. For Season 20, we’ll be introducing Legacy Focusing. We’re not quite ready to share the details on that just yet, but this is one of the many aspects of the game that players will learn more about as we get closer to Lightfall and beyond.
Glint needs a new hobby.
Our amazing player support team is working in all their mechanical glory once again with another update on the more technical side of Destiny 2. From known issues to solutions, here’s their roundup of what’s going on behind the scenes this Halloween — a slick fun filled game.
Lost Weekly Bright Dust Awards Festival
We spotted an issue where Eva Levante’s weekly rewards were only giving 100 Bright Dusts instead of the usual 200 Bright Dusts when the Lost Festival started. We’ve implemented a fix for rewards not delivered, as well as any future rewards players have received. Players affected by this issue will receive any missing Bright Dust at a later time.
Lord of the disabled wolves
The Lord of Wolves Exotic Shotgun has been disabled due to an issue that could cause more damage than intended. We are targeting update 126.96.36.199 next week to release the fix. More information will be provided as it becomes available.
Next Tuesday, October 25, the Destiny 2 update 188.8.131.52 will be released. View our Destiny Server and Update Status page for maintenance times, as well as the schedule below (all times are Pacific Standard Time):
- 9 a.m. PDT: Destiny 2 maintenance begins.
- 9:45 a.m.: Destiny 2 is now offline.
- 10 a.m.: Destiny 2 184.108.40.206 update will begin rolling out across all platforms and regions.
- 11 a.m.: Destiny 2 maintenance completes.
As we continue to investigate several known issues, here is a list of the most recent issues reported to us in our #Help forum:
- Players cannot turn Spectral Pages into Manifested Pages, which hinders the progress of the Gone but Not Forgotten quest.
- Some shaders may incorrectly apply textures to parts of armor sets that have a missing mechanical character. Once resolved, these parachutes may appear differently on armor sets.
- The Forged in Grace logo does not display his name when players hover over it in the inventory.
- The image of Bold Chapalu Sparrow on the event popup card displays the item in incorrect colors.
- Certain Lost Festival Weapon Reward sources do not correctly drop this year’s updated Weapon.
- Angel’s Gleam and Flower Child shader lists incorrect acquisition sources when viewed in groups.
- The Flawless Solo Dungeon Triumph requirement incorrectly lists the team’s Flawless Fire team completions as necessary, when they should select Flawless Solo Completions instead.
Evan: #MOTW could have been this Bungie trailer to promote King’s Fall, but our amazing community did it themselves. I hope that after watching it, those who did not participate in the raid will consider going, and those who have finished it several times will be inspired to return again! A touch of grudge for everyone! (Just kidding, free weird items unfortunately aren’t my way.)
movie of the week: King’s Fall fan-made trailer
Bruno: Do you like raids? I love raids. I don’t have a favorite one, but Deep Stone Crypt holds a special place in my heart for various reasons. Music, lore, bosses, guns, jumping puzzles with background lullaby, mediocre voiceover… No wonder this extremely talented Guardian decided to recreate it in Minecraft to the smallest detail. I can’t imagine how much work something like this would take.

hippie: It’s a spooky week™. This is what we live for! My inner New Orleans soul is dying to share some of the amazing festival of Lost-inspired art you’ve been hitting us with. nicely. With a love stick. More than just a hit, really. Anyway… here is art!
Oh, it’s a real game! Just wait, it’s truly cool!
art of the week: Prepare and open, guardians!
art of the week: Festival of the Lost, but make it arcade style
And one bonus in honoring the community team because the industry is always a good time!
Bbb-Bonus Art of the Week: “Like stealing candy from Smollen’ – the drifter, probably
And this is a file! It’s the first week of Festival of the Lost, and there’s plenty to do to get some new goodies while just relax and have a good time. As we get closer and closer to Season 19, we just want to reiterate that not every TWAB will be filled with a lot of new information. Some will be lighter, but you are always supposed to show what’s happening in the near future. We’ll have more about the next step, including more about weapons, bonuses, possibilities, and other endings in the coming weeks. can’t wait!
“I have to go,”
