It’s spooky season, Guardians, and Bungie has cooked up plenty of treats in their cauldron for Festival of the Lost 2023 in Destiny 2. To prepare you for Destiny 2’s best Halloween event yet, we’ve conjured this guide to fill you in on the event’s rewards — including a new way to focus Exotic armor and, of course, this year’s highly-anticipated armor sets.

Festival of the Lost Weapons, Eerie Engrams, Hocus Focusing, and Exotics Explained

Destiny 2‘s Festival of the Lost 2023 has more loot than you can shake a broomstick at, thanks to the brand-new Eerie Engrams dropping in Haunted Sectors. Similar to Seasonal Engrams, these can either be opened for a random reward or focused for specific loot through the brilliantly named Hocus Focusing system.

How to Get Exotics and Festival of the Lost Weapons Through Hocus Focusing in Destiny 2

Everyone’s favorite space grandma, Eva Levante, can (hocus) focus your Eerie Engrams into the following categories in The Tower:

  • Random Festival of the Lost Weapon — 1 Eerie Engram, 500 Candy
  • Specific Festival of the Lost Weapon — 1 Eerie Engram, 1000 Candy
  • Exotic Arms — 1 Eerie Engram, 2500 Candy
  • Exotic Legs — 1 Eerie Engram, 2500 Candy
  • Exotic Helmet — 1 Eerie Engram, 2500 Candy
  • Exotic Chest — 1 Eerie Engram, 2500 Candy

Focusing an Exotic will reward you with a random Exotic Armor piece wearable by your class. Hocus Focusing is perfect for Guardians looking to catch up on Exotics missing from their collection, as you don’t need to own an Exotic previously to obtain it.

Candy needed to hocus focus (and spend on other Halloween goodies) is earned by wearing a Festival of the Lost Mask during activities. This year’s masks have yet to be revealed, but I’m super excited to find out what Bungie has in store for us. Perhaps a Witness mask? Hive Eris?

Festival of the Lost Weapon Engrams

Festival of the Lost 2023 Armor Sets

Beehold, Festival of the Lost 2023 armor sets! As voted on by the community, these bug-themed armor sets are landing in Destiny 2 when the Festival of the Lost begins on October 17, 2023.

Rather than voting between themes like in previous years, Guardians could vote on either receiving a beetle- or spider-inspired armor set for their specific class. Titans and Hunters will be receiving incredible-looking spider sets, while the Warlock will receive its own beetle-themed set.

How you can get your tarsus (look it up) on these armor sets is currently unknown, though these FOTL sets should be available for Silver and Bright Dust during the event. Whatever we have to do, that Titan set will be mine.

Festival of the Lost Memento

Finally, a brand-new Memento will also drop through the secret Twilight Triumph. This slick-looking design can be applied to crafted weapons and can only be obtained during The Festival of the Lost.

That wraps it up for everything we know about Festival of the Lost 2023’s rewards in Destiny 2. While you’re waiting for the spooky shenanigans to begin, check out our Destiny 2 tag page for guides, news, and future FOTL content.
