🕒 11/21/2020 - 15:14
Over at Gigz's stream, seems the fireteam is getting close to ending the encounter, as mechanics have been figured out, but DPS numbers have not been enough to secure victory. Again, we'll know more about the encounter once we take a deep dive and clans reveal how they pulled it off, as they're being extremely secretive with information during the raid race.
🕒 11/21/2020 - 14:39
Checking in with Datto's squad, they're playing it close to the chest as every fireteam member mutes themselves to discuss strats in secret. OMAHA!
🕒 11/21/2020 - 14:12

According to Twitch streamer Ekeguan, this first encounter could potentially be a DPS check, meaning they only have one phase to defeat the Crypt Security boss.
🕒 11/21/2020 - 12:52
Keypads, Servitors, and fuses, three key components of this encounter so far. Teams are still figuring out the process to avoid wiping.
🕒 11/21/2020 - 12:46
Teawrex has pulled up the mighty Microsoft paint as the My Dad is Bungie clan is looking to effectively communicate how to work around the fuses which need to be deactivated, or so it seems.
🕒 11/21/2020 - 12:29
The raid race has been going on for half an hour and teams have hit a roadblock involving buffs called "Operators" and a Crypt Security boss in what it looks like an Exo tech facility.

One of the most exciting times in Destiny 2, Bungie's looter shooter that keeps going strong with the Beyond Light expansion kicking off Year 4, is the reveal of a new raid and the race to become the first squad to complete it.

With the developers themselves encouraging players to give it a go, the most dedicated of the bunch geared up with days in advance, bringing their best loadouts and gear into the mix.

Like previous raids, most of the top content creators in the Destiny 2 scene will look to become the world's first raid team to complete it.

In case you're unaware, here are the stipulations for the World's First raid race:

  • Contest Mode will cap all players at 20 Power below each encounter for 24 hours.  
  • Artifact Power will be disabled during Contest Mode.  
  • Your team’s Power Cap goal is 1230 for all the encounters.   
  • Being above 1230 will not provide any additional advantage in the final fight.
