The son of Oryx returns to Destiny 2 in Crota’s End re-release

The latest raid from Destiny 1 to make the transition into Destiny 2 is Crota’s End. Guardians will face off against the Hive Prince with updated mechanics fitting the Destiny 2 sandbox. As of this writing, the race to claim World’s First is ongoing so head on over to Twitch to check out the action.

Fireteams competing in the World First race will need to keep the following in mind:
  • Contest Mode will be enabled for 48 hours
  • Guardians will need to be at least Power Level 1790 for all encounters
  • Clearing the raid with Contest Mode active is how a fireteam unlocks Challenge Mode in the Director and the Superior Swordplay Triumph, which is a curated list of challenges that can only be completed in Challenge Mode
  • Completing the Superior Swordplay Triumph will be how a fireteam can claim the World First title
    • All six members of the winning fireteam will receive World First title belts
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in Challenge Mode, each fireteam will wipe if they fail the success conditions during any encounter

Also, as an added treat, players who complete the Contest Mode of Crota’s End and acquire the “Bottomless Pit” quest from the raid vendor within the first 48 hours will automatically complete the quest and receive all related rewards, including instant acquisition of the Necrochasm Exotic Auto Rifle. This quest will also become available for everyone who finishes the Crota’s End raid after the 48-hour period, where players can complete additional steps to earn Necrochasm.

Guardians who earn the Swordbearer title or finish the raid before the deadlines detailed below can unlock collectible raid-themed items for purchase through Bungie Rewards.

  • Raid ring – September 12
  • Raid pin – November 28
  • Raid poster – November 28
  • Swordbearer title pin – November 28
