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.
When does Destiny 2’s Vault of Glass Raid start?
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 Anniversary Event hints at Halo crossover
Destiny 2 players have spotted some Halo weapons in the upcoming 30th Anniversary event, and they believe it could be teasing a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack will arrive in Destiny 2 soon, and the teasers appear to show Guardian’s rocking some very familiar Halo weapons. This has sparked rumors that a Halo crossover will be arriving in Destiny 2 soon.
Bungie kickstarted the legendary Halo franchise back in 2001 but since parting ways with Microsoft, has now moved on to developing and supporting Destiny. Now, Halo is in the hands of 343 Industries.
Bungie will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a special Destiny 2 event that brings over content and cosmetics from its previous games. Although it’s Bungie’s most famous franchise, there was no confirmation that any Halo content would arrive.
However, on the 30th Anniversary Pack’s Steam page, eagle-eyed players believe they have spotted Halo weapons that tease a crossover.
The Bungie 30th Anniversary Pack launches on December 7 and brings a new Dungeon, as well as the Gjallarhorn Exotic Rocket Launcher, and weapons and armor from its previous games – Myth and Marathon.
Although Halo put Bungie on the map, the end of its Microsoft partnership has meant that Destiny and Halo have never had a crossover. However, it appears that could change.
Players have spotted weapons that look extremely similar to Halo’s classic Battle Rifle and Focus Rifle (or Covenant Carbine) in an image from Destiny 2’s ‘Dares of Eternity’ activity.
Some also believed that they spotted a Needler in the same image, but it’s actually a new armor set where the shoulder piece has some very familiar purple needles poking out of it.
However, there’s no guarantee that this will be an official crossover. It’s likely that Bungie has crafted new weapons that are inspired by Halo’s but in such a way that it doesn’t directly bring them over.
While an official crossover is possible, we’ll need to wait until the 30th Anniversary event releases to know just how much Halo will arrive in Destiny 2.
You can also check out how to get Destiny 2’s Last Word Hand Cannon and Halo Infinite devs teasing a stronger anti-cheat is on the way.
