Dark Below (Not Halloween) Sparrows

Published on: Oct 28, 2014 @ 16:00

With the latest patch comes a few Halloween goodies!


Flight Of Shadows – Are you the dream of a sleeping god? Or the nightmare of a dead one? Changes the appearance of your respawn for 24 hours. 

You can earn this consumable by killing Hive on the Moon. If you wear the Jackolyte helm while talking to Xûr, he will sell this item.


All Hallos’ Eve – Guardian! Do not forget that you returned from the dark. Celebrate these days of the risen dead.

After you’ve installed the patch, this will be waiting for you at the Postmaster.


Jackolyte – The Hive may haunt the dreams of children, but you haunt the dreams of the Hive. 

“Mask of the Third Pumpkin” as I like to call it, will transform your head into a pumpkin for 30 minutes. All Hallos’ Eve will reward you with 3 Jackolyte’s. 

Halloween Themed Sparrows

These Halloween Sparrows not only look great, but have a new upgrade called Destabilizers – “Use while airborne to release roll stabilizers.”

Each of these Sparrows has a speed of “6” which is the same speed as Rare Sparrows.

It is currently unknown how these will be acquired.

Update: Bungie said “There is no Halloween sparrow” – but obviously the Sparrows weren’t recently put in the game’s database (literally days ago) for no reason.

Notice how they worded it: These Sparrows aren’t considered “Halloween Sparrows” to them – that is all. They are still coming, eventually.

Everyone referred to these as the “Halloween Sparrows” because they were added/found in the database the same day that the actual Halloween items were found. Because of this, we assumed these were “Halloween Sparrows” when in reality they’re likely to be introduced with the Dark Below, along with the “Refer A Fireteam” item.


S – 30 Tumbler

It takes a skilled field mechanic to disable limiters without destabilizing the entire drive.


S – 31 Nightfall 

Drive fast and take risks.

S – 32 Snowflake

In modifying field drives, the limiting factor is tolerance to the idea of explosive engine disassembly.


S – 33 Dragonrider

At some point, it will come down to how tightly you can hold on.



Not much is known about this item.

Refer A Fireteam

We celebrate every Guardian who returns from the dark. A gift for you for leading another one home.

      Have you done the Nightfall this week? My friends and I have tested it and it doesn’t seem to work with the blue flame from “Blessing of Light”.

        At the time I hadn’t done it, no. I’ve done it now and not tried it since because I only have one left and would rather just keep it lock up. Haha.
