Season of the Chosen is quickly winding down, but it means that Destiny 2 players are getting closer to the return of Vault of Glass. Here’s its start date, details on World’s First, and more.

For many veteran Destiny players, Vault of Glass is going to hit them with a huge wave of nostalgia. Requiring a lowly Light Level of just 130, Vault of Glass was the first-ever Raid in the history of Destiny.

Now, nearly seven years after its debut, it returns to Destiny 2, remixed, and remastered to adjust to the ways in which the series has expanded. Bungie has said that Vault of Glass will launch with a typical World’s First race, and this is everything you need to know.

What is the World’s First race in Destiny?

A rare and prestigious event is always the World’s First race that comes with every single Raid in Destiny games. It’s the first official hours of a Raid’s launch in which fireteams all over the world compete to be the first team to beat it.

Clan Luminous took home the winner’s belts for winning the sacred race for Season of the Chosen’s Deep Stone Crypt. Vault of Glass will follow in its footsteps and have a full race to determine the first winners of the reimagined Raid in Destiny 2.

Even though Destiny 2 Season 14 hasn’t officially been announced just yet, Bungie has kindly let players know when the Vault of Glass Raid will start so that they can be adequately prepared.

According to a Bungie news post, “Vault of Glass will go live on May 22 at 10 AM PDT.

Here are the start times for other key zones:

  • ET – 1pm
  • CT – 12pm
  • BST – 5pm

What rewards can I earn from the Vault of Glass Raid?

Players getting stuck straight into the harder version of the Raid, Contest Mode, when it launches will be competing for the Destiny 2 Vault of Glass championship belts that all winners receive for finishing first.

Bungie has also said, “We will have a full array of raid rewards and Bungie Rewards associated with Vault of Glass as well as an emblem available for completing it. We’ll cover all of the details on how to get them soon.”

What’s changed in Destiny’s Vault of Glass Raid?

This will be the first time in Destiny history that a Raid will be brand new, yet still feel like an old Raid. It’s been confirmed that Vault of Glass will be “the first race (outside of previous hard modes) where players have a broad understanding of what to expect while still encountering changes they’ll have to adapt to.”

Since the original Raid, Destiny has expanded and grown into a behemoth, adding in fearsome new weapons and incredible new abilities to use.

Bungie has also made note of specific changes that make this World’s First race different than previous ones:

  • “Vault of Glass will launch with Contest Mode (explained here) enabled for 24 hours.  
  • You will need to be at 1300 Power to be at the cap for all of the encounters. 
  • Clearing Vault of Glass with Contest Mode active is the first step to access the new Challenge Mode in the Director and the Tempo’s Edge Triumph. 
  • Completing Tempo’s Edge, a curated list of Triumphs, in this newly unlocked Challenge Mode, will be how a fireteam crosses the World First finish line and claims their prize.
  • To enforce the Triumph requirements in the Challenge Mode, your team will wipe if you fail the success conditions during each encounter.”

Vault of Glass is shaping up to be a memorable and historic return to glory. With Season of the Chosen coming to an end, players can start preparing themselves for all that Season 14 will hold.

Destiny 2: How to unlock the Adored Sniper Rifle

Here’s how to unlock the Adored Sniper Rifle, through the Gambit, Crucible, and Vanguard quests in Destiny 2 Beyond Light.

Published

Adored sniper rifle in Destiny 2

Destiny 2’s Season of the Hunt introduced the Adored Sniper Rifle, a reworked version of the fan-favorite Beloved. Here’s how you can get your hands on this powerful Ritual weapon.

In the second year of Destiny 2, developer Bungie began experimenting with the idea of powerful weapons that could be unlocked by completing specific milestones in the game’s three core playlists: Vanguard, Crucible, and Gambit.

One of the weapons available to be unlocked this way is the Adored Sniper Rifle. With a fixed perk pool and two traits in each column, this weapon is strong in both PvP and PvE scenarios.

Triple Tap and Vorpal Weapon are excellent when in PvE scenarios, while Snapshots Sights and Killing Wind will help you aim and take down enemies quickly in PvP.

Here’s how you can get your hands on it.

What is Destiny 2’s Adored Sniper Rifle?

Adored in an Adaptive-frame sniper rifle, and while it does not have the raw damage output of other snipers like the Aggressive-frame Revoker, the gun still has solid stats and some good perk combinations available.

The first two static perks on the weapon are Hammer-Forged Rifling and Accurized Rounds, which boost the gun’s range value. The first set of interchangeable perks are Triple-Tap and Killing Wind, followed by a choice between Vorpal Weapon and Snapshot Sights.

Adored offers some interesting perk combinations depending on playstyle and whether the sniper will be used in PvP or PvE.

How to obtain Adored: Vanguard, Crucible and Gambit quests

While there was still only a single Pursuit weapon, Bungie changed the process for obtaining the new Sniper Rifle: players can choose to complete a single quest in one of the three core playlists – Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit – and will be rewarded with the new Sniper Rifle.

Guardians should follow the steps outlined below, in their preferred playlist, to obtain Adored:

Vanguard Guide

    1. 35 defeats in streaks
    2. 20 Sniper Rifle headshots
  3. Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored

Crucible Guide

    3. Speak with Banshee-44 in the Tower to receive your Adored

Is Adored worth the grind?

While the three quest options for obtaining Adored are quite simple compared to some previous Pinnacle weapon quests, the question still stands: is the weapon worth the grind? Members of the Destiny 2 community have started to issue their verdicts on the new gun.

While it may not be the most powerful Sniper Rifle in the game, Adored does appear to be a solid choice for both PvP and PvE, especially with the recent sunsetting of many other weapons.

If you are looking for a new Sniper Rifle to use in Beyond Light and Season of the Lost content, completing the short grind to obtain this weapon is probably a good idea.
