Destiny 2 is extending Day One Raid for the second straight year
twice in a row?
Destiny 2’s next raid is now just over a month away and players have been eagerly awaiting it, preparing for its arrival alongside the Lightfall DLC itself. However, Bungie just announced that the contest modifier, which is normally active for 24 hours, will now be extended by an additional 24 hours.
This is the second time in Destiny history that a Day One Raid has been extended in any way, shape or form. Last year, the Vow of the Disciple raid was extended for another 24 hours due to several bugs that occurred when the raid was released. This time, Bungie is adding an additional 24 hours to Competitive Mode to allow teams to complete the raid while the mode is active. If you complete the raid while the mode is active, players will be rewarded with a very exclusive 24-hour emblem that cannot be obtained any other way.
This move by Bungie raises several questions about the Lightfall Raid. Does Bungie expect more bugs to surface when the raid launches? Will this be a permanent change that will continue with Day One Raids? And most importantly, if they willingly add extra time, will there be a unique reward for completing the raid in less than 24 hours instead of 48?
Anyhow, we’ll have to wait and see how players feel about this change as the Day One Raid race is arguably one of the most critical times of the year for Destiny 2. Whether they will be pleased, dissatisfied or not with the changes will determine the future of this change for the following day one raids.
