Crota’s End Challenge Mode Was Destiny 2’s Hardest Raid In Years

The Destiny 2 Crota’s End World First race has concluded, and now it’s time to examine the statistics from the reprised raid’s initial weekend. These figures reveal that Crota’s End is unquestionably the most challenging of Destiny 2’s reprised raids thus far, with its challenge mode also standing as the toughest Destiny 2 raid in four years.

Destiny Raid Report shared the stats from Crota’s End’s first 24 hours on Twitter, indicating that around 4000 players successfully completed the raid in Challenge Mode out of 350,000 attempts. With a success rate of merely 1.189%, Crota’s End’s Challenge Mode becomes the most difficult Destiny 2 raid since Garden of Salvation in 2019.

Crota’s End in Normal Mode had a slightly higher success rate of 3.102% within the first 24 hours, with 10,000 out of 350,000 players successfully completing the raid. This establishes Crota’s End as the most challenging reprised raid in Destiny 2 thus far, as King’s Fall had a Normal Mode clear rate of 14.318% and Vault of Glass saw 8.857% of players succeed.

Considering the original Crota’s End was regarded as a relatively straightforward raid in Destiny 1, players are relishing the added challenge of Crota’s return, particularly those who engaged in the raid in Contest Mode.

The World First race also proved to be a thrilling competition, with two teams finishing within 1 minute and 5 seconds of each other. The ultimate champions were Saltagreppo’s Team Elysium, who completed Challenge Mode in just under 6 hours to secure their fourth World First victory, having previously triumphed in King’s Fall, Vow of the Disciple, and Vault of Glass.
