Destiny 2 Crota’s End Raid Release Details, Exotic Quest Rewards, and More – Live Now!

Launch Details

Beneath the surface of the Moon, a long-forgotten enemy wakes. Invade the Hellmouth, and stop a dark army from invading Earth.

“Crota’s End originally released shortly after the launch of the original Destiny in 2014, Crota’s End finds Guardians braving the Lunar landscape to enter the Hellmouth and confront Oryx’s son once and for all.”


Power Requirement: 1790 Power

Access: Free-to-Play

Note: To create more server space, combatant kills below boss tier in King’s Fall and Crota’s End won’t count for bounties or weapon crafting during Contest Mode.

Good Luck to everyone participating in the raid race!

Raid Race

Starting September 1, Bungie is holding a World First Race for Crota’s End. Teams have 48 hours to finish the raid in Contest Mode, complete the Challenge Mode and Triumph, and be the first to achieve victory. The winning team will be declared World First and receive special Crota’s End raid belts.

Contest Rules

  1. Contest Mode active for 48 hours.
  2. Clearing the raid with Contest Mode unlocks Challenge Mode in the Director and a secret Triumph.
  3. Completing the secret Triumph requires completing a curated list of challenges in Challenge Mode to earn the World First title and belt.
  4. Failure to meet Triumph requirements in Challenge Mode results in fireteam wipe during any encounter.

When the first team completes the raid and subsequent challenges, we’ll verify that and proclaim them the World First winners via the DestinyTheGame account. However, we’ll still be performing a thorough security validation, and if we find any activity that breaks our World First rules, we will disqualify that team and award the next team the belts.

Exotic Raid Quest and Rewards

Important details about the Exotic Quest for Necrochasm

  • Players that acquire the Bottomless Pit quest from the raid vendor during the 48-hour Contest Mode period in Crota’s End will have the quest automatically marked as complete and all rewards placed in their inventory immediately.
  • The quest does not require any currencies to purchase it.
  • Rewards will include Husk of the Pit, Eidolon Ally (fully Masterworked), and Necrochasm.
  • Players will notice they can acquire Essence of the Oversoul from completing raid encounters and Triumphs. This is required to complete the Bottomless Pit quest if they don’t finish within the Contest Mode as well as to complete the weapon catalyst’s objective for Necrochasm.
  • During the Contest Mode period, players who obtain the weapon catalyst will not be able to progress the objective on it, and it will statically show the objective progress at 20/35 Essence of Oversouls collected, regardless if they collect additional Essences.
  • After Contest Mode ends, all Essence of Oversoul that the player has acquired thus far will still be respected and the player may begin making progress on the catalyst objective, continuing from the number they previously acquired.
  • Players that acquire the Bottomless Pit quest after the 48-hour Contest Mode will have to complete the quest starting from the beginning to obtain the quest rewards.

“Yes, it’s coming back! To celebrate this return of a fan-favorite weapon, we have a guaranteed reward for those who are brave enough to take on Crota’s End during Contest Mode.”
