Destiny 2 Halloween event: details and rewards

It’s that spooky time of the year, and what better way to celebrate than with some limited-time events in every Guardian’s favorite game? As is the tradition at this point, Destiny 2 is embracing the holiday season with a limited-time event with exclusive themed rewards around the Halloween holiday. The entire tower will be getting a spooky makeover, but the really exciting part is, of course, the special event and rewards you can earn.

Called the Festival of the Lost, this event is technically still part of the current Season of Plunder but is available for all players for free, regardless of what expansions they have or have not purchased. While Bungie hasn’t fully outlined all the specifics of how Festival of the Lost will work, there have been some details shared, plus a couple of leaks, to sink our teeth into. If you want to get your Guardian ready for some holiday fun, here’s all the information out there on the Destiny 2 Halloween event.

What is the Destiny 2 Halloween event?

Three guardians wearing halloween armor.

As mentioned, this year, Destiny 2 is celebrating Halloween with what they’re calling the Festival of the Lost. The event kicks off on October 18, which is the weekly reset time, and is expected to last until November 8 if it follows the same three-week trend as previous holiday events.

As for what the event will actually add in terms of activities, that is still left in the dark. Last year, we were able to participate in special Haunted Lost Sectors, which placed us in a randomized haunted forest to fight Halloween-themed enemies. It is possible these Haunted Lost Sectors will be used again, perhaps just in an altered form, but for now, we will have to wait and see.

What we do know is that a new Event Card will be added. By completing objectives related to the Festival of the Lost activity, players will earn Triumphs that will lead to exclusive rewards. Speaking of rewards …

What are the rewards?

Three robotic armor sets.

That Event Card will ultimately result in the Reveler title for your character. That’s just one thing to aim for, though, since Bungie already held a vote to help decide what new armor will be available during the Festival of the Lost. Between Team Mech and Team Monster, Team Mech, which featured robotic armor designs, won out. All we have is the concept art for what the armor sets will look like, but the real things shouldn’t be too far off from what they showed.

While the armor is the only confirmed reward so far, data miners have found what appear to be two other notable rewards that might be in store for us. The first is a set of eight new Halloween masks, as leaked by Twitter user HeySoraPark.

The other, which was posted by DestinyBulletn, reveals a brand new arc sniper. This weapon has no name attached to it but does appear to be aesthetically in line with the mech designs of the new armor. This sniper will apparently be coming with the Origin Perk called Search Party with a description that reads, “This weapon is granted faster aim down sights speed and movement speed while aiming down sights when no allies are near.”

RoboCop: Rogue City: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more

"Dead or alive, you're coming with me!" The classic RoboCop movies, particularly the original, was a groundbreaking take on crime and police in a near-future version of Detroit. While the reality surrounding those things has moved in quite a different direction than the film predicted, it's still a great concept and an awesome piece of '80s nostalgia. RoboCop himself, though, has never really been done justice when being translated into games. We got a handful of early games on systems like the NES and SNES, but they were not quite able to really capture the feel of being a walking tank in the streets of Detroit.

First announced in 2021, RoboCop: Rogue City looks to finally put you behind the mask of RoboCop. However, being such a beloved film, there's a reasonable amount of hesitancy for this adaptation. Not to worry, though, because we've done our patrols and staked out all the important locations to bring you everything you need to know about RoboCop: Rogue City. All you need to do is read on. You have 20 seconds to comply.

The best heroes in Overwatch 2

With the release of Overwatch 2, the cast of selectable heroes has ballooned to over 30 distinct characters spread between the three major roles. Even for veteran players, this leaves a ton of abilities, tactics, counters, and compositions to try and keep straight. If you're a new player, the choices will easily feel overwhelming. It can be simple enough to narrow down what class of hero you want to focus on, whether it be Tank, Support, or Damage, but even within those boundaries, you have a ton of variations.

While your mileage will certainly vary on which hero you consider to be "best," and the game's meta will shift with any update and balance changes, there are always going to be a select few that are top-tier for that time. As of the current state of Overwatch 2, these are the best heroes you should at least consider for each role, which we will update as the game's meta adjusts and changes over time.
