10-3-2023 Added confirmation from Bungie regarding the Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares World’s First raid race winners.
The Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares Lightfall raid has launched and, in it, Guardians face one of the most terrifying enemies in the history of Destiny 2‘s expansive lore.
More than a thousand raiders have jumped into the World’s First race to complete the Destiny 2 raid in contest mode, which increases the event’s difficulty for the first 48 hours of the raid. The beautifully-designed raid features the voice of Nezarec, the Final God of Pain, encouraging players to seek the entity out while on the Witness’s pyramid ship.
The fireteam Hard in the Paint is the confirmed winner of the World’s First race, as confirmed by the official Destiny 2 Twitter account. The team defeated Nezarec to complete the raid in about 2 hours and 24 minutes.
Each member of the winning team will earn a special raid belt that Bungie has developed specifically for the event winners. However, all players who complete the raid within the first 48 hours will get a special emblem.
