Destiny 2 Leak: First Look at Upcoming Raid, Plus Surprise Weapon and Armor Reveals

It seems like the dataminers never sleep, and this time around, they managed to share some info about the upcoming Lightfall raid, including the story, boss, loot, and other details. Moreover, new weapons, armor, ornaments, and emblems were leaked as well. So, without further ado, let’s walk you through all of them. Please note that there are massive spoilers ahead!


New Raid: The Root of Nightmares

According to data miner Ginsor, who shared this info on Twitter, the new 6-player raid is called Root of Nightmares. As stated in the screenshot below, The Guardians will embark on the terraformed Pyramid ship belonging to The Witness and face an ancient threat there, whose origin is unknown. Presumably, judging by the name of the raid, we’ll confront Nightmares, but it’s still just an assumption.


However, there is something we now know for sure. A few hours later, Bungie confirmed the name of the raid and also revealed its start date, which is March 10, 2023, at 9 am PST, with Contest mode enabled for 48 hours. 

As for the raid boss, it most likely is going to be Nezarec, a former Disciple of The Witness. Below, you may find other bosses’ possible models that were retrieved by dataminers as well. In addition, we added the raid Encounter list shared on Reddit.

Moreover, there are a few images from the end raid cutscenes.

On top of that, dataminers leaked the three-minute opening cutscenes, but at the time of writing, it was deleted. However, that’s not all these guys managed to extract from the game’s files. According to the
post shared in Destiny2Leaks on Reddit, here’s what the raid loot table will consist of.

New and Returning Locations

Believe it or not, but the Tower which serves all players as the central hub location is going to be replaced by its own version from the first game! What a treat! But that’s not all.


The following information is not yet confirmed, but we may see the return of the farm location which was a location from the Red War campaign back when Destiny 2 first released. It also served as a hub to new players before they reached the endgame hub which was the Tower in the original version of Destiny 2.
