This Week at Bungie • October 1st 2020
#TWAB // https://bit.ly/3n8CPDk This week at Bungie, we’re summoning some ghosts. Next week, we’re getting spooky up in the Tower again. Festival of the Lost returns on October 6 for more fright-filled fun. This year’s festival is going to rock! Check out our Festival of the Lost 2020 page for a quick look at what to expect during this year’s event: https://www.bungie.net/FestivaloftheLost Eva Levante, or as you all affectionately call her “Space Grandma,” has returned to the Tower to lead Guardians in a celebration of those we’ve lost. We miss you, Cayde. The Haunted Forest is back and filled with ghoulish enemies. This year, we’ve added five chests to the end of the activity for five times the loot!
To open the chests, you are going to need some Cipher Decoders. Talk to Spider to get started and then they will drop from playing any of your favorite activities across the solar system - similar to Umbral Engrams. Braytech Werewolf and Horror Story will both be rewarded from these chests and each have new perk combinations to hunt for. You’ve probably been hearing this a lot lately, but it goes double for Festival of the Lost: don’t forget to put on your mask. There are new masks available this year as well as some favorites from the past. Eva has a Masquerader Helmet which you can apply your masks to as ornaments before you head out in the world to start stockpiling candy. The mask mods for the Haunted Forest also return from last year’s event.
Before we wrap up the event on November 3, you are going to want to complete three of the Triumphs for opening chests in the Haunted Forest. Once you finish off the required Triumphs you will be able to trade in some of your candy for a mummified Exotic Sparrow, ship, and Ghost.
Finishing the “Wrapped and Ready” Triumph required to get the Exotic Ghost also unlocks the ability to purchase the Restless Shell Ghost pin through Bungie Rewards. Speaking of Bungie Rewards, we also have a terrifying new emblem available for free if you finish the initial quest during Festival of the Lost.
That’s the gist of it, but here are a few quick notes that may answer some questions you have: • Minimum Power to enter the Haunted Forest is 750. • You can hold up to 25 Cipher Decoders before you need to go open some chests in the Haunted Forest. • There will be both earnable masks and masks available for Silver/Bright Dust. - Any Triumphs involving masks do not require masks from Eververse. • Bounties will return from last year and will once again offer Bright Dust. • All-new Eververse items will be available for both Silver and Bright Dust except for the “One-Inch Punch” finisher which will be available for Silver. • The toothbrush is still just a toothbrush.
