How Does Contest Mode Work

During as new raid in Destiny 2, there is a Contest Mode where teams compete to be the first team to complete the raid. Here is a guide on how it works.

  2. After you've completed King's Fall, a new challenge mode will be available
  3. Complete Challenge Mode with secret Triumphs for all encounters
  4. The first team to complete all secret Triumphs will be the Worlds First!

Although it is not confirmed, teams who complete the raid within 24 hours will receive some rewards. Players who want to participate must be Power Level 1560 and above to hit the cap for each encounter. You can still play if you are a lower level but the defense of your Guardian will be lower and make it challenging.
