Destiny 2's first raid, Leviathan, went live at 10am pacific today. Immediately, hardcore clans got to work. Hours later, a team of players cracked it.
Raids, as many of you know, are tough dungeons with elaborate puzzles and challenges. You can only take them on if you're at a high enough Power, and even then, you still have to figure out how to progress through the area. Raids are the toughest PvE attractions that Destiny 2 has to offer.
The Legend Himself, a name you might already be familiar with if you've played Destiny 1, had the honour of being the first team ever to beat a raid in Destiny 2. You can see the spoilerific final moments below. Chat, as you might expect, goes wild.
Bungie was watching the entire time — you can see them react to the world first clear below. Aww.

As a reward, now we all get access to a new Crucible map, too. Sweet.
The first Fireteam has made their way through Leviathan. Shaxx isn’t far behind. Emperor’s Respite is now available for all in the Crucible. pic.twitter.com/Cu7aV0EZb5

For comparison's sake: the first vault in Destiny 1 was beaten in ten hours.
