The world’s first race for Destiny 2’s Crota’s End begins today. Players will be vying for their chance to be the first ones to finish it, completing the raid once and the particular challenges. These challenges will be unique and difficult to master.

Although many teams will be competing over the weekend to finish the race first and earn the emblem, only one team can be crowned the winner of the World’s First race. This guide will share where all the teams are during this race, who is currently in the lead, and who will land on top as the winner of Destiny 2’s Crota’s End World First race.

Update: It has been confirmed that team Elysium has completed the raid, and they have become the four-time winners of the World First raid race in Destiny 2.

Right now, the Destiny 2 teams are likely getting ready to embark into the Crota’s End raid. Bungie has provided an update to all contestants, sharing what exotics have been banned, namely the Tessellation, Weavewalk Aspect, Banner of War, Foetracer, Elemental Munitions, Overload Hand Cannon, Frenzied Stacks, All ammo Reserves, and All Font Armor Charge mods have been disabled throughout the contest mode. Players also have a 48-hour window to complete the race, which will be good for any other Destiny 2 players trying to finish the raid before the end of the weekend.

Right now, no one is in the standing, and no one is ahead. We will update this guide as we get closer to Destiny 2’s Crota’s End raid event. We are nearly at the start of the races, which is set to begin at 10 AM PST for every player, worldwide.

  • 10 AM: Crota’s Raid is unlocked! All participants have started, and this will undoubtedly be the slowest part of the day, as everyone works through the first part of the raid, and gets started.
  • 10:15 AM: The teams steadily working through the first part of Corta’s Raid, but it looks like Datto’s team might be at the front of the race. Everyone appears to be in the same area.

  • 12:40 PM: The Crota is proving to be exceptionally tough. The teams who have reached this final battle to enter the Challenge Mode have yet to find out the exact mechanic they’re missing. It’s all hands on deck to figure it out.
  • 1:00 PM: More teams are entering the Crota fight, but the imBravo team has arrived at the enrage stage with Crota. Although they failed, they’re the closest team that has reached the end of this fight, potentially getting over the finish line into the Challenge run for Crota’s End in Destiny 2.
