Crota’s End Raid Launch

Crota’s End Raid

Launches: Friday, September 1 at 10 AM PDT

Contest Mode Changes:

Bungie tuned Contest Mode in Crota’s End to keep launch event challenging compared to players’ improving abilities.

  • Increased the cap of player outgoing damage vs. combatants. Keep in mind that the incoming damage cap did not change.
  • Some enemies will gain elemental shields.
  • All enemies will be more aggressive than in the previous Contest Mode.

Contest Mode Rules:

  • Contest Mode will be enabled for 48 hours.
    • You will need to be at 1790 Power to be at the cap for all of the encounters to take the raid on.
  • Clearing the raid with Contest Mode active is the first step to access the Challenge Mode in the Director and the special Superior Swordplay Triumph with the challenges for each encounter.
  • To complete the Superior Swordplay triumph, a fireteam must complete a curated list of challenges in this Challenge Mode and claim the triumph to snag that World First title and that sweet, sweet belt.
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in Challenge Mode, your fireteam will wipe if you fail the success conditions during any encounter.

Until next time.
