Destiny 2 Raid Deep Stone Crypt Start Time

In Contest Mode, teams will compete globally to be the first one to complete the raid. The winner will be crowned World First, but there are still rewards to the runner-ups.

Contest Mode has a few rules. According to Bungie:

  • 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.

Completing the Raid within 24 hours will get you an exclusive emblem and completing it before Dec. 1 will let you purchase the Deep Stone Crypt Raid Jacket Jacket from the Bungie Store. It's a real, physical Jacket that is only available to those who have completed the Raid.

If you're not competing for first, you can watch a variety of streamers like Dr Lupo and Frosty vie for the World First title. Bungie will try to verify the results by Nov. 23.
