How to raid on Twitch

IF you want to give another streamer a boost – There is nothing better than a Twitch Raid.

But what is this streaming feature and how does it work? Here’s everything you need to know.

What is a Twitch Raid?

A Twitch Raid is one of the most effective yet unpredictable ways for Twitch streamers to grow their channel – and they’re now a crucial part of the live streaming platform’s ecosystem.

When the streamer finishes their broadcast, they can send their entire audience to another creator on the platform, giving viewers another stream to tune into while building a supportive streaming community.

This collaborative method benefits not only the viewers but also the streamers who provide them with a generous amount of free new followers.

New Twitch streamers rely on this type of support to break into the scene.

How does it work?

Twitch Raids work on a relay system — meaning they provide a way to tag a live Twitch audience and broadcast that audience to another streamer.

This is usually done at the end of the previous show to share and expand viewership with other broadcasters.

If you are offline at the time of the raid, your channel will also host the target channel.

How to raid on Twitch

The good news is that starting a raid on Twitch is pretty easy.

Before you end your broadcast and redirect your viewers to another streamer, be sure to remind your viewers that you will be temporarily redirecting them to a different channel.

Then you can start your raid – and enter a command to start the process.

All you have to do is type /raid followed by the name of the channel you want to broadcast your viewers to.

Or you can use the Raid Channel feature on the dashboard to choose from a list of streamers.

Once you have selected your preferred methods, a chat popup will appear in the chat area informing everyone in the target channel and the number of people participating in the raid.

After 10 seconds, a second popup will appear indicating that you are about to raid the target channel.

This can also happen earlier if the streamer running the raid clicks Raid Now to override the countdown.

Both streamers and moderators can opt-out – but they only have 10 seconds to do so.

However, not every channel will be raidable – after some raids were used to spread hate, Twitch added new settings that allow users to block all raids or only allow them from specific channels.
