Destiny 2 Guardian Fighting Nezarec in Root of NightmaresBungie

A Destiny 2 player has completed the most recent Root of Nightmares raid completely solo and deathless, causing mass praise from the community for the World’s first achievement.

Destiny 2 players are always pushing the boundaries of the game, from incredible movement techniques like well-skating to completing insanely hard content with only the bare minimum. The hardcore Destiny community is constantly finding new ways to challenge themselves and the game.

Often times this comes in the form of soloing content, with the goal of completing the entire encounter without any deaths in mind. In Destiny, this is considered one of the hardest goals to achieve, as most content is designed to be run by multiple players with the ability to revive one another.
