All Destiny 2 raids & release dates

Traditionally, Bungie has released almost two raids a year in Destiny 2. Recently, this cadence is thanks to the developer reprising Destiny 1 raids, with all but one having been released into Destiny 2 with changes ranging from slight to dramatic. Here is a table showcasing each raid, its Power cap, the date of its release and the season it was released in, along with the enemy faction the raid focuses on and the Exotic weapon you can earn.

As you can see in the table, the Recommended Power is only slightly lower than the max Power of the Season. Additionally, it’s worth noting that the Contest Mode Power cap typically limits player Power to 20 points below an encounter.

The table also shows that the least popular enemy to have in a raid is the Scorn, despite these foes now being in Destiny 2 longer than when they were not. This race is followed closely by the Fallen, who have only been the focus of two raids. On the other end are the Cabal and Hive, who have both featured in four raids a piece, though the Hive is from two reprised raids and the Cabal were in a lot of raids earlier on.

While there have been a lot of raids in Destiny 2, not all of them are still available to play. Unfortunately, everything prior to Garden of Salvation (excluding Last Wish) has been vaulted, effectively removed from Destiny 2. Whether Bungie brings these back or reprises them remains to be seen. We’ll be sure to keep this updates as new raids return or old ones come back.
