Crota's End - Hard Mode

Jan 20, 2015 - DeeJ

Crota has met his end at the hands of many a Fireteam. Now that you've had a chance to descend into hell and emerge victorious, we're inviting you to dig a little deeper. For the expert raiders among you, the hard mode version of this activity will provide the next challenge that Destiny has to offer.

Set Destination for Moon. Select Crota's End. Level 33 is what you're looking for. At this point in time, do we really need to tell you to be brave?

Why We Fight!


Primary Weapons of every variety can be plundered from different encounters throughout the Raid. With the application of some loving care and Radiant Materials, each of them has the potential to reach a Maximum Attack rating of 331.

“We will not go quietly.”

“This is the shape and the point of the tooth: nothing has ever lived that will not die.”

"The light of the will of Crota shines down like a vast and inverse sun.”

“There was life, and He spoke unto it, and it was silent, and lived no more.”

Don’t forget that Hard Mode is also the only place to obtain “Crux of Crota,” the final piece needed to upgrade the Eidolon Ally (the gun formerly known as Husk of the Pit) to its full, Necrochasmic glory.

“Eternity is very close. Can you feel yourself slipping?”


That’s Bane of the Dark Gods, in orbit over its port of origin.

When people see you fly this baby, they’ll say “You came in that thing? You’re braver than I thought…”


Finally, there’s also a Hard Mode Exclusive color palette for your gear. It’s called Glowhoo. The first of you to earn it gets to show it off.

Can't Play? Watch this...

If you find yourself unable to gather at the starting line, or you just want to learn from the best, we've assembled a roster of fireteams who will be streaming their attempts. Some of them hope to be the first to complete the mission. Others are just eager to play.
