Who won the Mechs vs Monsters voting in Destiny 2?

While Festival of the Lost might still be over six months away, Bungie wanted to start working on some of the rewards players would be able to earn during the Destiny 2 Halloween festivities.

At the start of April, the developers revealed their intention to have yet another fan-selected armor set that would be featured during the Festival of the Lost. Last year, a dinosaur-themed set won the voting against monsters.

Now, with a Mecha-inspired set competing against a revamped Monster armor, fans who cast their vote were eager to know who ended up winning the poll to become 2022's Festival of the Lost armor.

Revealed during the 14th April This Week at Bungie blog post, the developers confirmed that Mechs had edged out Monsters this year, winning the poll with 52% of the voting.

The Mech armor was nothing to scoff at either, with sets reminiscing of classic Gundam and Sentai, which is why they ended up as winners of the poll.

If you're new to Destiny 2, it's important to note that these sets are purely ornamental and are not proper armor pieces with individual stats. That means you can continue to boast your strongest gear while looking stylish.

The set will be available for purchase using two different currencies, one is Silver, the premium one that requires real-life money to acquire, or Bright Dust, a farmable currency that players can use to buy cosmetics.

If you managed to get your vote in, don't forget you will be eligible to collect an exclusive emblem, called Broken Barriers. There are a few steps you need to do on top of voting so be sure to check our dedicated guide that will guide you through the process.

Now, all that remains is to wait half a year for October to roll around and start earning our Mech-inspired armor. We're sure Destiny 2 will offer plenty of content to keep Guardians busy, as Season 18 will be in full swing when it Festival of the Lost hits.
