2023: Festival of the Lost Armor: Creepy Crawlies

Following the tradition of presenting two different concepts and letting the community choose their favorite, Bungie spiced things up and made some changes to the voting process. First, instead of presenting two concepts from two completely different themes, both concepts fall within the same theme: Creepy Crawlies.

Also, instead of letting players vote for one concept overall, each class could vote individually. The results were the following:

  • Titan: Crawling Chaos Armor (Spider)
  • Hunter: Mygalomorph Armor (Spider)
  • Warlock: Carapace Armor (Beetle)

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.

How to get the Festival of the Lost armor set: Bight Dust

Unlike armor sets that drop from specific activities, Festival of the Lost ornaments can only be purchased at the Eververse store with either Silver or Bright Dust.

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

If you play your cards right and have enough Bright Dust, you can get any Festival of the Lost ornament for free. If you are currently low on Bright Dust, prioritize completing all the weekly Festival of the Lost bounties available at Eva Levante’s. These will become available as soon as the event starts.

How to enter Festival of the Lost 2023

To enter the Festival of the Lost event, you simply need to visit Eva Levante at the Tower once the event becomes available. She will provide you with a quest and, eventually, your Mask, which will play a central role throughout the event. If you’re new, don’t worry. Festival is a straightforward event, and Eva’s quest does a good job of explaining the different mechanics.

Festival of the Lost is a free yearly event that is open to all players. Originally launched with Forsaken, Festival of the Lost continues to evolve, featuring more and better activities and mechanics each year. This time around, expect Haunted Lost Sectors to return. Whether they have been modified from last year’s iteration remains to be seen next week, though.

Before you go…

FotL is one of the four yearly events in Destiny 2, alongside the Dawning, Guardian Games, and Solstice. If you’re interested in top-tier armor, these events are a must.
