The Festival for the Lost, a Halloween-themed occasion for Destiny 2, is arriving in less than a month and will continue at the end of October and into early November. This season’s Festival of the Lost is embracing a terror theme that has many players eager for the annual spooky festivities, which according to one user, will be represented via the various classes’ armor.
The events at Destiny 2 provide a few of the most interesting gameplay all year, although enthusiasts say Bungie is hit or miss in executing several events such as 2020’s Solstice of Heroes. Regardless, this is frequently a time which Bungie leans into thematic armor and weapons, and this season old terror creatures are serving as major inspiration.

Reddit user Cap_Can accessed a wealth of pictures by turning off”hide imperceptible collection things” on the Braytech Destiny 2 fan site, then navigating to Groups, Armor, and Universal Ornaments. There, the consumer discovered a Lycanthrope place for the Hunter class, referencing werewolves, a Daywalker set for the Warlocks, representing vampires, along with a Promethean set for the Titans, symbolizing Frankenstein’s monster.
The sets include a number of things for each category, including a mask and cocktail for Hunters, boots and robes for both Warlocks, and gauntlets and greaves for Titans. There’s also some intriguing new masks, like a Bubbling Mask that looks like a cauldron filled with green goo, and a Variks Mask only in time for the fan-favorite character to come to Destiny two in early November.
The comments in the Reddit thread are largely enthusiastic, and a lot of people are enthusiastic about the Warlock robes, which can be black-and-white and come with a cravat that looks like a character out of an iconic Dracula game or movie. Some people are less than pleased about the asymmetrical designs which have shown up at a lot of new armor, not only for this event, although people are split about the interestingly-placed canister on the Hunter’s mask.
Even though some folks are underwhelmed by the Titan’s armor, the vampiric Warlock is proving to be quite a major hit among fans, and while the Hunter’s werewolf getup is divisive, those that enjoy it are fairly outspoken about it. There’s a very clear theme and unity to such designs, which really seems to be serving Bungie nicely by providing it a comeback group of inspiration to draw from. It is clear to see exactly what a lot of the armor is meant to signify, and whether fans appreciate the aesthetic, they do not need to guess at what the subject is supposed to be.
