Today is a big day for Destiny 2 Beyond Light players, as it marks the launch of the Deep Stone Crypt Raid. It’s the first raid content introduced in the Beyond Light expansion. As always, there’s a massive number of players going for World First, including some of the biggest content creators on YouTube and Twitch. Who’s going to get the Deep Stone Crypt World First record? Let’s find out.
The Deep Stone Crypt raid opens on November 21 at 1 PM EST (New York time). Players have had some time to get ready and assemble their squads. Here’s a look at the rules, as per the official Bungie post:
- 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.
Contest Mode is active for the first twenty-four hour period, in which your power level is capped at 1230. Artifact Power is also disabled during the raid. A base power level of 1230 is required, and any additional power does not matter during this time.

The Deep Stone Crypt World First event winners need to go through an official Bungie reviewal process to ensure everything was by the book. Your timer officially ends when you return to orbit, so you’ll want to grab all your loot and get going as quickly as possible.
Because of the reviewal and confirmation process, you should continue with your run even if you hear about someone finishing. You never know what might happen to someone else’s run, whether it be disqualification or some other issue.
