Destiny 2 Haunted Forest Location

If you're looking for the location of the Haunted Forest in Destiny 2, this guide tells you how to find, as well as what rewards you'll get for completing it.

Every year around Halloween, Destiny 2 celebrates the Festival of the Lost, an event remembering all that Guardians have sacrificed and what they can do in the future. The Festival plays host to an annual, limited-time activity called the Haunted Forest, a spooky, procedurally-generated dungeon run filled with enemies, bosses, and plenty of loot.

Activating the activity is a simple process, and making it repeatable is simpler still. This guide will show you where to find the Haunted Forest, providing you with a step-by-step walkthrough so you can start collecting the various masks on offer.

How to Find the Haunted Forest in Destiny 2

To begin your journey into the Haunted Forest, go to the Tower. You’ll find it festooned with decorations befitting the season. Walk forward a few steps, and you’ll meet Eva Levante, your guide to everything Festival of the Lost.

Talk to Eva, and you’ll receive some dialog and a quest.

Pick up the quest, and you’ll be greeted by Eva’s inventory: bounties, event masks, weapons, items, and other goodies. Pick up any/all of the Masquerader’s Hood masks, and your next quest will appear.

At this point, all you have to do is open up the map of the Tower. You’ll see a new quest icon at the top: this is the location of one way into the Haunted Forest.

All you have to do now is select which version of the Haunted Forest you’d like to attempt. For your first run, I recommend sticking to the default setting, called simply “Haunted Forest.” 

This first version of the activity is matchmade, making sure your first run goes as smoothly as possible, provided you don’t have other people on to play with.

The “Firewalled Haunted Forest” removes the option for matchmaking, allowing solo or otherwise private runs for you and your friends.

The Activity

Once you’ve launched into the Haunted Forest, you’ll have 15 minutes to clear as many branches as you can by killing enemies and bosses. Nine branches grants you Pinnacle level gear, and enough boss kills nets you a Tier 3 Powerful reward. 

The Reward

After you’ve completed your first run through the Haunted Forest, return to Eva for your reward: a bag of treats. 

Go ahead and pick up your goody bag, and once you’re done perusing Eva’s inventory, make a slight right, and you should see a new marker above a blue holographic tree. 

Now you can launch the Haunted Forest either from this tree in the Tower or through the Tower map.

Happy hunting!
