As the first proper new raid since Deep Stone Crypt in 2020, the Vow of the Disciple raid in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen was massively anticipated by the community.
With the expansion lauded as one of the best in the history of the action MMO, expectations were set high for the pinnacle six-man activity that would debut on 5th March during the Worlds First raid race.
Sadly, the start of the raid race was marred by constant connection issues, plaguing the hundreds of fireteams trying to go for the title of Worlds First, or simply the bragging rights of saying you completed Vow of the Disciple on day 1.
Vow of the Disciple raid race connection
If you've tuned in to watch any of the multiple Destiny 2 Twitch streams, you'll notice nearly all the streams getting disconnected from the game, with error codes like ANTEATER, GUITAR, and BAT.
The reason for these error codes popping up is unknown as of this moment. However, Bungie has confirmed they are looking into these issues via their BungieHelp Twitter account.
We're currently investigating connection issues in the Vow of Disciple raid, including ANTEATER, GUITAR, and BAT error codes. Stay tuned for updates.— Bungie Help (@BungieHelp) March 5, 2022
Fans online suspect that the errors could be related to equipping certain modes and using certain guns. The Verge's Tom Warren mentioned that disabling Volatile Rounds helped his fireteam avoid error codes.

Is the Vow of the Disciple raid race suspended?
Bungie has not mentioned any decision regarding the status of the World's First Vow of the Disciple raid race. However, many content creators have petitioned the developers to restart the race later, as it would only be fair for all those affected by connection errors to start fresh on another date.
Of course, this doesn't negate the advantage some fireteams have, as many made remarkable progress even during these connection issues plaguing the raid launch.
As always, we'll keep you updated on any decisions taken by Bungie. However, by the look of things, it seems the raid race will continue as if nothing had happened.
