Destiny 2 player becomes the world’s first to beat all fifty waves of Destiny 2’s new horde mode called Onslaught on Legend difficulty.

In the world of Destiny 2, where players compete in the world’s first raid races, dungeon races, and even the first team to reach the Lighthouse in Trials of Osiris, one player has something truly remarkable. They have single-handedly conquered Onslaught’s 50 waves on the Legend difficulty setting, becoming the first player to do so.

It all began during the first developer livestream for Into the Light, where Noah Lee, an Associate Activity Designer at Bungie, threw down the gauntlet, asking the Destiny 2 community if anyone could beat Onslaught on Legend difficulty: “I think it’s not possible. That’s my charge to the community. Can you beat Legend [Onslaught] solo?”
