Destiny 2 TWAB: Vow of Disciple World First Race; Hard Light Now Available as Prime Gaming Reward

World First Title
World First Title Bungie

In Bungie’s recent weekly post for Destiny 2, the developers talked about the upcoming raid, the Vow of Disciple. In addition, a new round of Prime Gaming rewards is here with a very good exotic auto rifle up for grabs. The developers have also revealed why the game is not supported on Steam Deck.

New Raid

The developers are going to launch the Vow of Disciple raid tomorrow. In the first 24 hours of its release, the raid dungeon will be put in contest mode where the Power Level is capped 20 points below your current Power. The best way to go about this is to reach the power cap so that you’ll attain the 1,530 Power Level limit, giving you a fighting chance in each encounter.

Artifact power is enabled, but its benefit will only be capped at 1,530 Power. Furthermore, the devs want those who will vie for the World First title to have a challenging experience. Therefore, some pieces of gear that provide major benefits will be disabled in contest mode. These are:

  • IKELOS_SMG_V1.0.2 Legendary SMG
  • Imperial Needle Legendary Bow
  • Grand Overture Exotic Machine Gun
  • Wardcliff Coil Exotic Rocket Launcher
  • Wormgod Caress Titan Exotic Gauntlets
  • Peregrine Greaves Titan Exotic Legs
  • Suppressing Glaive Artifact Armor Mod

The first fireteam to finish the raid, loot the final chest, and then return to orbit will earn the title of World First. The race begins on Saturday, March 5 at 1 p.m EST and ends on Sunday, March 6 at 1 p.m. EST.

Bungie’s Word on Steam Deck Support

While Steam Deck allows you to play your Steam library of games anywhere, Destiny 2, unfortunately, is not playable on Valve’s portable gaming console.

According to Bungie developers, their goal is to provide a secure environment for those playing the game. Because of this, they will not support any platform that may give “bad actors” a chance to compromise Bungie’s anti-cheat security systems.

As it stands, Steam Deck is not supported, and playing the game on the device will result in a ban.

What do you think? Should Bungie reconsider their stance about Steam Deck support for Destiny 2?
