BEYOND LIGHT WORLD’S FIRST RAID RACE
Begins: Saturday, Nov 21 @ 10 AM Pacific
Here is what else you’ll need to know:
- Contest Mode will cap all players at 20 Power below each encounter for 24 hours.
- Artifact Power will be disabled during Contest Mode.
- 1230 Power is your team’s goal to be at the cap for all the encounters.
- Being above 1230 will not provide any additional advantage in the final fight.
This year, the ritual for naming the winners will be different. Following all the immediate fanfare and bustle that follows the checkered flag, Bungie data scientists will be spending extra time validating the finishing team’s run. Expect the official announcement for “World First” to come a bit later than usual. Disqualifications can happen as per the official rules. So finish strong, even if you hear rumors of another team’s victory.
An award ceremony will take place in the days that follow the raid. Bungie will crown the champions who return first to orbit after a respectable effort. Once Bungie validates a mission completion, they will enter their names into history. Every member of the six-player fireteam who is certified as the World First finishers will receive a title belt as their ultimate reward. Bungie will unveil the new belt closer to the start of the race.
Even if you don’t win World First honors, the earliest victors in the raid can claim some awesome rewards to let the world know you were among the first to fight.
For those of you who want to flex in style, Bungie will be offering a new, Europa-ready raid jacket you can purchase through Bungie Rewards. Finish the raid before December 1 at 9 a.m. Pacific to claim your code. You can use that code to make your purchase any time before 11:59 p.m. Pacific on December 31. Bungie will show off a preview of the jacket closer to the launch of the raid.
Contest Mode Raid Emblem Reward – First 24 hours
Everyone who has completed the raid in the first 24 hours while Contest Mode is activated will receive this very special emblem.
Raid Completion Emblem
For those who like to savor new content like a fine wine and not rush through to the raid experience, you will have rewards waiting on you when you get there. Along with the [redacted] weapons and armor, everyone who completes the raid will earn this emblem.
