It was an intense race to first place for those trying to complete the new Destiny 2 Prestige Raid. First and second place winners were separated by a margin of just four minutes!
Clan Redeem was first to take down the souped-up Callus and his army of minions.
Bungie confirmed and congratulated the winners on Twitter:
Where things get a little messy, is when we hear one of the players mention that they are using a glitch. “Coil glitching” instantly replenishes a power weapon’s ammo, and so can be used to get an advantage.

Prior to the Prestige Raid launch, Bungie stated that it would be monitoring those who complete it to make sure it’s done legitimately.
If the player hadn’t mentioned using it, it probably would have gone unnoticed. But he did, and now the community is in an uproar.
He very clearly said “Coil Glitching” not swapping guns, go to :11, and on top of that, you see the glitch happening before your eyes.

In response to these complaints, Bungie will be releasing the Top 3 finishers, allowing players to “make [our] own decision as to who should be celebrated.
“We have seen the reports that an ammo exploit was used today in the Prestige Raid. This was not the specific exploit we were checking for and we don’t currently have the ability to detect it. Tomorrow we will release the top 3 finishers in the TWAB. You can make your own decision as to who should be celebrated.”
In other Destiny 2 news, here’s what changed with the weekly reset, give the PC launch trailer a watch in glorious 4K 60fps, and the game’s director has discussed weapon perk rolls and the “high percentage of players” who have completed the game.
