Destiny 2 Season 22 Reprised Raid Release Date Confirmed

While we still don't know what raid re-run is coming up, Bungie has dropped some details for players hoping to compete for its World First.


Destiny 2 Season 22 will bring with it a reprised version of an existing raid that is not currently available, and now we know when it's releasing. Bungie hasn't announced which raid is coming back, but it has given early warning that it will drop on Friday, September 1, 2023.

In the most recent weekly Destiny 2 blog post, Bungie shared the date to give players time to prepare and added some extra details for any players hoping to contest the upcoming raid's World First title.

Season 22 reprised raid start times

The upcoming raid will be available beginning on Friday, September 1, 2023 with the daily reset at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET. Contest Mode, for anyone planning to compete for the World First title, will be enabled for the first 48 hours, just as it was for Root of Nightmares earlier this year. This is slightly later than expected, as Season 22 starts on August 22.

September reprised raid World First requirements

While Bungie hasn't yet revealed many details about the upcoming raid's Contest Mode, such as a power cap or any disabled gear, it did share some reminders on the process for any teams hoping for a World First. Here are the details:

  • Contest Mode will be enabled for 48 hours.
  • Clearing the raid with Contest Mode active is the first step to access Challenge Mode in the Director and the secret Triumph.
  • Completing the secret Triumph which consists of a curated list of challenges that must be completed in Challenge Mode will be how a fireteam can snag that World First title and get that sweet, sweet belt.
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in Challenge Mode, your fireteam will wipe if you fail the success conditions during any encounter.

By wiping the team if a Triumph is failed, this ensures a team won't unknowingly botch a Triumph and then go on to complete the raid without satisfying all of the requirements.

We'll be on the lookout for more details from Bungie on the upcoming raid, including the name of the raid that's in line for a re-run. Leviathan and Crota's End are among the candidates.
