This week at Bungie, we started unboxing the decorations for Festival of the Lost.

Starting Tuesday, October 16, all Destiny 2 players are invited to join in on the festivities. Amanda Holliday will serve as your host, offering bounties, masks, and rewards for all to partake in. Guardians will be invited to confront their Nightmares in the Haunted Forest, a limited-time activity exclusive to Festival of the Lost. If you missed the announcement yesterday, head over to the blog article to get caught up.


Festival of the Lost isn’t the only thing starting next Tuesday. Tuesday is filled to the brim with updates to the game, live events, and more. Read on for details below.

Second Wave
Launching a game reveals what we did right and where we could have done better. With the first month of Forsaken behind us, we’re taking stock of what we’ve learned. Some of those learnings will manifest in game updates that we’re deploying in the very near future, but not every improvement can be made with code changes. We also want to make it less complicated for other Guardians to begin their journey in Forsaken.

Effective October 16, the purchase of Destiny 2: Forsaken will include the two expansions included in the Destiny 2 Expansion Pass. Every player of Destiny 2 who has yet to touch down on the Tangled Shore will need only the Forsaken upgrade. Our hope is that this will eliminate some of the questions that confront a player as they try to join our party.

“What about us?” we can hear everyone who has already purchased Forsaken asking.

You’re our Vanguard. We appreciate you beginning the hunt on day one. You were there when the first raid finish changed the Dreaming City. You’ve been part of the conversation that has breathed enthusiasm back into the Tower. For you, and only the players like you, we have a collection of veteran’s rewards as an expression of our appreciation for being on the frontlines.

Every Guardian who played Forsaken prior to October 16 will receive the following bundle of items.


The Tiger Stripe Black Shader and Veterans Nameplate emblem are exclusive to players who earn this bundle by playing Forsakenprior to October 16. The two Exotic emotes will be made available on Eververse sometime in the future. All item names are subject to change.

Thank you for playing, and thank you for being the first to experience what we’ve created. This package is currently slated to be delivered to Veterans in early December. When the new Guardians arrive, please join us in extending to them the welcome that has made this community so notorious as an awesome group of people.

Out of the Iron, into the Fire
Lord Saladin returns to the tower, just in time to witness Guardians donning their brand new Shaxx masks. Iron Banner begins Tuesday 10/16, and ends Tuesday 10/23.

Coming with Destiny 2 Update 2.0.4, Iron Banner bounty objectives and rewards have been updated to address player feedback.

  • Each bounty will now offer a powerful reward
  • Bounty objectives have been updated to the following:
    • Lightbearer: Reduced Super kills to 20 from 25
    • Iron in the Blood: Reduced match completions to 15 from 30
    • Shine On: Reduced Orbs generated to 50 from 100
    • Iron Victory: Reduced match wins to 7 from 10
    • To Be Precise: Reduced precision kills to 50 from 100
    • All in a Week’s Work: Reduced kills to 150 from 250

Players will also unlock an item in Lord Saladin’s inventory for direct purchase with each bounty completion, featuring curated perk rolls. This time around, foxes and wolves will battle it out for a spot in your arsenal.


Looking to earn some masterwork cores on top of everything above? For the duration of Iron Banner, Valor gains will also be increased.

Double Valor: 10/16–10/19
Triple Valor: 10/19–10/23

With all these rewards, there’s no better time to dip your toe into the Crucible. See you out there.
