Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost 2021: Everything We Know

Sure, Halloween is some way off (that's an understatement), but Bungie has already started revealing some new tidbits of info for its long-running Festival of the Lost event. The spooky spectacular is likely a couple of seasons away, but there are already new sets of armour for Guardians to salivate over.

With October starting this week, hopefully we'll see some spooky teasers soon for this year's event. In the meantime, here's everything we know so far.

Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost 2021 Start Time

Expect the event to kick off in early October, as it has done in previous years.

With Witch Queen being delayed to 2022, Seasons could change at different times, but given that it's a Halloween event we can't anticipate the event not dropping at some point in October. 

Expect it to finish in early November.

Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost 2021 - Rewards and Activities

While we don't know what the activity is, there's a good chance the Haunted Forest will be back.

Essentially a gauntlet that sees Guardians attempting to slay as many bosses as possible within a time limit, it's been great fun in the past - although we'd like to see Bungie shake it up a little.


We'll also be treated to some new festival masks, and we're hoping for a Caiatl one. Of course, the big draw is new armour sets, and Bungie has a pair up for fan voting.

"Movie Monsters VS Dinosaurs! Two larger-than-life legends battle for control over this year’s Festival of the Lost. The universe isn’t big enough for both of them and they have only one goal: Winning your vote," Bungie's blog post explains.

"Now you might be thinking, “Hey, that dinosaur has some pretty good policy ideas.” But maybe the Movie Monster charging towards you as you fill out your ballot is making you nervous. We get it, it’s a high-pressure situation. Now choose!"

We're quite fond of the movie monsters, but you can vote here.


Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost 2021 Triumphs

A new event means new Triumphs, Destiny 2's in-game achievements.

Expect some to task players with accruing candy, while others will be tied to collecting masks.

Whatever they are, we'll have them here when we know what they are.
