Destiny players have continued to find ways to keep entertaining themselves in the Crota’s End raid, long after their gear has out leveled the challenge. Every class has managed to solo the game’s normal mode, and players are now racing to see who can clear it the fastest. There’s even a Guardian who managed to beat the raid without even firing his gun.
Crota’s End has become so easy for so many players, that a good portion of them are now turning their attention to the raid’s hard version, with reports coming in about players pulling off impressive feats in that mode as well. There was a report last month that a Warlock had soloed the raid, and now this week, a Titan has done the same.
Bungie.net user JSHolmes posted the above video on Bungie’s forums, demonstrating his take down of the hardest currently available boss in the game. The player posted on Reddit that the accomplishment took about 50 hours of practice for him to pull off. Watching the video, it’s clear he needed to pull off perfect timing and an impressive number of headshots, not to mention other acrobatics, in order to have a chance.
Destiny remains a love it or hate kind of game for many, but even those who aren’t fans of the title have to show at least a little respect for the way the game’s passionate fan base continues to create their own end game. Bungie has said that additional content is on the way, along with the release of the game’s next expansion, House of Wolves, later this year.
Part of the fun of playing any MMO-style game is getting better gear that you can use to go back and crush content that previously gave you trouble. But one has to wonder if Bungie will come up with any additional ways to lengthen the life of Destiny’s raids after seeing players tear apart both Crota and the Vault of Glass. Watching players solo all of this content is fun to a point, but the player base would surely appreciate it if some of these big bad guys could put up more of a fight over the long term.
It’s also worth mentioning that all of these players wouldn’t be spending so much time trying to solo the content if there were more genuinely fun and rewarding things to do across Destiny‘s end game. Most players still place a lot of faith in Bungie though, so hopefully they will come up with a solution to this problem.
Destiny is out now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
