VAULT OF GLASS RAID (Free for All Players)
Located at the Ishtar Sink on Venus. The time lost Raid returns. Stored away, deep in the Vault of Glass on Venus is Atheon, Time’s Conflux. No one knows what this Vex is. Guardians must access the Vault, navigate the fractures in space and time, and terminate Atheon before it can become an unstoppable threat.
For all of you going for World’s First I wish you the best of luck and hope everyone has a great time diving back into the Vault of Glass again or experiencing it for the first time! –Kyber (Kimberly)
Raid Race for World’s First Begins: Saturday, May 22 @ 10AM PDT
As Bungie showed back in April, there is a new title belt for players to earn. Here’s a quick recap on the rules of engagement:
- Vault of Glass will launch with Contest Mode enabled for 24 hours, starting at 10:00 AM Pacific on Saturday, May 22.
- You will need to be at 1300 Power to be at the cap for all of the encounters.
- Clearing the raid with Contest Mode active is the first step to access the new Challenge Mode in the Director.
- Completing each encounter in this newly unlocked Challenge Mode, while also finishing a curated list of Triumphs will be how a fireteam crosses the World First finish line.
- To remove the guesswork, in the Challenge Mode, your team will wipe if you fail the conditions of the Triumph during the encounter.
Here’s a link to the Bungie Help Article covering all the details. If you’re planning on going for this belt, make sure to review this content to ensure your clear is fully complete in Bungie’s logs!
*IMPORTANT NOTE: The Hunter Exotic “Star-Eater Scales” will be disabled for the first 24 hours of Vault of Glass being live. The Bungie team has discovered an issue where some abilities were being granted a bit more damage than intended.
NEXT WEEK IN DESTINY!
- Hack the Vex Network on the The Tangled Shore in the next Override!
- Uncover vulnerabilities in the Vex Network in the first weekly Expunge mission.
- Shaxx brings Mayhem to the Crucible!

Summary: A unique Vanguard Strikes Cross Play Beta playlist will be available to all players in Destiny 2. You’ll be matchmade with Guardians playing on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam and Stadia. The Cross Play Beta will be restricted to this matchmade activity. You won’t be able to form a fireteam just yet and you won’t be able to send invites to friends.
Exclusive Emblem: “Stars Crossed”
- Any player who complete three strikes in the Vanguard Strikes Cross Play Beta playlist will be rewarded with the unique “Stars Crossed” emblem.
In the early hours of Season of the Splicer, a few of you got your first unfiltered taste of Cross Play. Even though this was caused by a bug, Bungie saw players mingling between platforms, which was awesome for Bungie! That said, they needed to smash that bug like a subscribe button to get their release back on track. While their current goal is for Cross Play to ship in Season 15, they have a list of things to do before it’s ready, one of which is a Beta starting early next week.
Yes, you read that right! You are formally invited to the Destiny 2 Cross Play Beta. This will serve as a short, sweet, and important moment in the development of this feature.
From May 25 through May 27, a unique Vanguard Strikes Cross Play Beta playlist will be available to all players in Destiny 2. You’ll be matchmade with Guardians playing on PlayStation, Xbox, Steam and Stadia. As you fight through the enemy waves of Darkness, their teams will be scouring data and preforming a multitude of actions to test the integrity of our upcoming Cross Play system.
All players who complete three strikes in the Vanguard Strikes Cross Play Beta playlist will be rewarded with the unique “Stars Crossed” emblem.
NOTE: The Cross Play Beta will be restricted to this matchmade activity. You won’t be able to form a fireteam just yet and you won’t be able to send invites to friends. Bungie is specifically targeting our matchmaking systems as Bungie preps this feature for next Season.

Vault of Glass World First
Fireteams who wish to compete in the World First race for the Vault of Glass raid will be able to do so when the raid launches on May 22, 2021, at 10 AM PDT (1700 UTC).
The first Fireteam of 6 to complete the Vault of Glass raid, then complete the Vault of Glass Challenge Mode and claim the Tempo’s Edge Triumph will be declared World First by Bungie from @Bungie on Twitter after verification from our analytics team.
If a Fireteam cycled through different members during their attempt, the final 6 remaining upon the completion of the final encounter of the Challenge Mode activity where at least one member of the Fireteam claims the Tempo’s Edge Triumph will be declared the winners and be awarded raid World First title belts.
The Fireteam must loot the final chest before returning to Orbit and claim the Triumph or their finish may not be recorded. A team’s official finish will be recorded when they return to Orbit.
