In order to get the Horror Story Legendary auto rifle in Destiny 2, you’ll need to visit Amanda Holliday during the Festival of the Lost event and purchase it in exchange for 120 Fragmented Souls. There are a variety of ways to earn Fragmented Souls during the Festival of the Lost event including paying a visit to the Haunted Forest and completing both daily and weekly bounties.

First, a fun activity you can partake in during the Festival of the Lost centers around the Haunted Forest. In a nutshell, the Haunted Forest is a mode where you enter and explore as much of the Haunted Forest as you can during the 15-minute time limit. To make things harder, there are waves of enemies that increase in difficulty the farther you explore.

Once you finish a Haunted Forest run, you’re rewarded with Fragmented Souls. You can run through the Haunted Forest as much as you like, making it an ideal way to farm for Fragmented Souls. Meanwhile, you can also complete daily and weekly bounties to increase the amount of Fragmented Souls you earn during the Festival of the Lost event.

For example, completing weekly bounties rewards you with a whopping 40 Fragmented Souls. If you were to exclusively complete weekly bounties without ever entering the Haunted Forest, you could theoretically earn enough Fragmented Souls before the Festival of the Lost ends on November 6 (if you started earning bounties this week).

To be extra sure you earn the 120 Fragmented Souls needed for the Horror Story Legendary auto rifle, we recommend completing as many bounties (daily, weekly) as you can and doing as many Haunted Forest runs as you can. That way, you should have no problem earning 120 Fragmented Souls and using those Fragmented Souls to purchase the Horror Story from Amanda Holliday.
