Raids is a game mode that requires a 6-player team. These cooperative events are challenging endeavors that require communication for the team to succeed. A Power Level of 300 is recommended for normal Raids (Prestige Raids raise the recommended Power Level to 330).
While a raid team is within a restricted zone of a raid, a unique failure mechanic, rather than the usual 30-second respawn timer on death, applies. If a player dies within a restricted zone, the rest of the team has a short amount of time to revive the player. If a revive does not occur within this time, everyone that is alive is killed instantly, forcing the whole team to restart the encounter that imposed the restricted zone. Additionally, the team can only revive players 5 times (across the whole team, not per person) during each attempt within a restricted zone - once all revives are used up, another death will usually result in a wipe (and a refund of revives) unless the team can manage to complete the encounter immediately after the death.
Unlike in the first Destiny game, loadouts are not locked during Raids - this means that if you get the weapon that you were looking for you can equip it instantly without having to leave the raid.
Same or more challenging to complete than a raid, but takes less time commitment.
Unlike the previous Destiny where you had to find your own teams, Destiny 2 will include a type of matchmaking known as guided games. A player will be able to join Clans that are looking for an extra player or two. Clans can start a Guided Games version of raids by selecting the location from the director and agreeing to the Guardian Oath. Clans that have guided enough players and abide by the Guardian Oath will have a higher Oathkeeper score, and more players will likely choose their clan over others.
