Fate 2‘s big scary event is just around the corner, and Bungie finally teased the new mech inspired armor players will chase. Some people get Ultraman vibes. Others see Power Rangers. But I’ll get one large dose of Gundamand I’m very happy about it.

Festival of the Lost goes live on October 18, and while Bungie hasn’t revealed the full details of how this year’s version will work, it traditionally revolves around wearing masks, shooting haunted enemies, and collecting the space candy that drops to trade in for festive goodies. Last year’s theme was dinosaurs, and it was…nice! This year, players voted for either mechs or monsters, and naturally, the mechs won (monsters, meanwhile, lost for the second year in a row).

The Gundam-ass armor will be available through the Festival of the Lost. Hunters look cool, but the mech theme definitely plays best with the chunky Titan aesthetic, so I’ll dust myself off after a couple of seasons in storage. The event will also add a sniper rifle with a new origin perk called Search Party, which buffs aim and movement speed when solo. There’s even a new Rhulk mask for anyone to dress up as their favorite witness disciple.

Meanwhile, Bungie also announced some big and small changes are coming to the rest of the Fate 2. Next week’s mid-season update will rebalance a bunch of weapons, including buffs to auto rifles and some very minor nerfs to a few other weapons like scout rifles. Rangefinder perks are also being tweaked and will see 20 percent less bonus aim assist at long ranges, while powerful exotics Jade Rabbit and No Time To Explain will see their aim assist reduced as well.

More importantly, Bungie revealed a major overhaul of the currency economy coming in Season 19. Planetary Materials are disappearing and heroic public events will be the new hotspot for Glimmer farming. The idea is to reduce some of the noise on the inventory screen and create Fate 2 more accessible to newcomers. Although it is the right move, I still think a much deeper overhaul is needed. Mica is also pretty useless at this point.

Yes, it’s required for certain gear upgrades and can also buy extra bounties to farm XP faster, but it basically feels completely tangential to the rest of the experience, unlike Legendary Shards which currently deplete at an alarming rate thanks to the expensive seasonal Umbral Engram Focus Loop. Fall of lightand what other major changes it entails Fate 2, can’t come fast enough. Because now it’s almost Gundam time.
