The Festival of the Lost is an annual event in Destiny 2 that comes during Halloween. This year’s Festival will take place from October 12th to November 7th. During the Festival, players can participate in several activities, including collecting candy, gathering new legendary weapons, and competing against enemies in special Haunted Lost Sectors.
This time around, we have a new sniper rifle called Mechabre. Bungie has also brought back old Festival of the lost weapons; Horror Story, Braytech Werewolf, and Jurassic Green Pulse Rifle. Horror Story was a community favorite back in the day; it was one of my favorite auto rifles.
The challenges are not exactly secret; once you complete one run of the Haunted Lost Sector and return to Eva Levante, these will be unlocked. Make sure to pick the “Gone But Not Forgotten” Quest from Eva Levante before looking into any event activity.

The description of all the challenges is straightforward; some of these might require you to grind a lot. But given we have almost 20 days to complete everything, I should be able to get everything.
I am aiming for the god roll Pulse Rifle and Auto Rifle. This event comes right when Bungie has decided to shift the meta a little bit by nerfing pulse rifles and buffing auto rifles a bit.
