Salvation’s Edge Winners Confirmed by Bungie

Salvation’s Edge went live on Friday 7 June, 2024 at 1 pm ET. Players quickly launched into the race to see if they would be the first to the finish. Unfortunately for many teams, it became undeniable this was no simple battle and the foes were of a superior power level! When 12 hours had passed and no winner was declared, project leader Catarina Macedo announced: “The Witness is the biggest threat the universe has ever seen. We warned you.”

The last raid race to take this long to complete was Last Wish back in 2018, which took a team 18 hours and 49 minutes. Raid races don’t usually take this long to beat, which is a testament to how tough and challenging Salvation’s Edge was. The Destiny 2 community joins together to congratulate team Parabellum on their impressive win.

The team of six consisted of Astro, Bravo, DrakathShadow, Ham, Jake, and Tyraxe. The team battled gallantly through the hordes of goblins and nasties to clear Salvation’s Edge!

The winners were verified by Bungie at 8:25am ET, 15 minutes after the studio discovered a fireteam had been successful. There was no live recording of the win as the team had not been streaming, but they did take to social media to shout their victories and congratulate each other.

So what is next for the more adventurous Guardians among us? A new challenge was announced not long after the raid race was declared. This time we are treated to a 12-player activity, Excision:

The Witness has retreated from the monolith – but, an important battle awaits. We’ll need all Guardians available to help us defeat the Witness, once and for all. Rally with us and launch into Excision, a newly unlocked 12-player activity.

A massive congratulations to the winning team! Who knows, perhaps it will be another six years until a Destiny 2 raid will last as long?
