Emblem for Raid.

A Raid is a six-player cooperative mission. Raids are very difficult and complex, requiring communication and high-level abilities and gear.[1]

GameplayEdit

Unlike story missions and strikes, raids give players only the bare minimum of guidance and objectives and instead challenge Guardians to figure everything out as they proceed.[2] Because of the necessity of communication and coordination, raids do not support matchmaking.[3]

Raids have two difficulties: Normal and Hard. Normal mode focuses on learning the raid's mechanics, communicating with the team, and strategizing.[2] Hard mode increases the difficulty in several ways, including deadlier enemies, new behaviors for raid mechanics, and a harsher death penalty. Hard mode for a raid can be unlocked after it is first completed on Normal mode.[2]

Raids can be exited and resumed later as long as the fireteam leader is the same player.[4] However, all progress will be lost after the Weekly Reset each Tuesday.[2][5]

LootEdit

Each Raid has exclusive loot, consisting of one complete set of armor and a class item for each class and one legendary weapon of each type.[2] Some items will only drop on Hard. Raids also have a high likelihood of dropping exotic weapons.

Once a Guardian receives loot for an encounter, that Guardian is locked out from receiving any further loot from that encounter until the Weekly Reset each Tuesday.[2][5] Encounter loot drops have an independent weekly lockout for each difficulty, meaning that the Hard mode drop may be received in a week in which the Normal mode drop has already been received.[5] If a raid is run on Hard in a given week before it is run on Normal, each loot drop will deliver both the Normal and Hard rewards together.[5] Chests found within raids do not have separate lockouts and will only give rewards once per week.
