Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost Armor: 2022 Mech armor guide

by | Oct 16, 2022

Festival of the Lost 2022 is upon us, and like every year, it features lots of themed gear and cosmetics to chase. And just like last year, the armor for 2022 looks amazing.

Hardcore fans know what to expect: Mech-themed armor sets. The winner of a massive community poll held on March 2022, Team Mech got 52% of the votes against team Monster.

In this post, we’ll share all the images available of the new Mech armor sets, but also remind you how much they’ll cost and where to get them.

2022 Festival of the Lost schedule

This is the official Festival of the Lost schedule for Season of the Lost:

  • Starts on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, at 9 AM PDT
  • Ends on Tuesday, November 8, 2022, at 9 AM PDT

This means you have three whole weeks to complete the seasonal quest, grind Bright Dust and buy these awesome armor sets.

2022 Festival of the Lost Mech Armor (Season 18)

Bungie shared a concept image of the Mech armor during the community poll, but this week, they finally revealed the definite armor sets:

In case you’re curious, this is the first Team Mech image shared by Bungie on April 2022:

Needless to say, these armor sets look incredible, and you’ll want to get at least one of these before the event is over. This means you better start farming Bright Dust now.

2021 Destiny 2 Dinosaur Armor (Season 15)

In case you’re curious, this is the winner of last year’s community poll: 2021’s Dinosaur-themed armor sets:

And here they are in full cinematic mode:

How to farm it: Eververse

Now that you’ve seen the armor and decided you want one (I know I’m getting the Hunter and Titan sets!), this is everything you need to know in order to plan ahead:

  • Each set costs 6,000 Bright Dust: This is exactly the same cost as for all seasonal events.

With only 3 weeks to go before the end of the event, you have limited time to farm Bright Dust. But as with everything in the Eververse store, it’s incredibly easy to spend all your Bright Dust, yet there are only two reliable ways to farm it: Weekly bounties and Seasonal Challenges.

Destiny 2 Festival of the Lost armor sets (per season)

These are all the Festival of the Lost armor sets that have been released since the launch of Destiny 2 in 2017:

2018: Destiny 2 “vanilla”

Festival of the Lost Year 0 armor

2019: Destiny 2 Forsaken

Festival of the Lost Year 1 armor

2020: Destiny 2 Shadowkeep

Festival of the Lost Year 3 armor

2021: Destiny 2 Beyond Light

Festival of the Lost Year 4 armor

I know I don’t have the mental strength to grind bounties on all 3 characters. In fact, even grinding every weekly bounty every week for 7 weeks is going to be a challenge.

This means that for most, grinding enough bright dust for 1 armor set and 1 mask or sparrow will be a challenge as it is.

It will be tough, but it’s not too late! See you on the Strikes Playlist, mindlessly grinding my bounties 😅
