Andrew Highton

The struggle has been real for many people trying to overcome Deep Stone Crypt with a Fireteam of six. But now the class is starting to shine through and Destiny streamer Slayerage has taken his Deep Stone Crypt game to the next level.

The buzz and hype for Beyond Light’s raid is still prevalent with many players still reveling in Bungie‘s latest test of extreme endurance and patience.

However, like with most Destiny 2 raids, people are starting to understand the mechanics of DSC inside out. As a result, solo efforts are now being made with the raid and Beyond Light’s final exam may not be able to hold onto its honor for much longer.

The first minute or two are focused completely on taking out waves of enemies until the Servitors turn up. He soon heads into a pod and ascends into space and is inflicting damage to Atraks-1 within three minutes. It’s clear from the outset that Slayerage knows exactly what he needs to do as he’s very cerebral about everything he does.

Burdening himself with the undertaking usually required of six people, there is lots of shifting to and from space to carry out the individual tasks. There’s barely a moment’s hesitation as he zips around the arenas knowing that speed and precision are key.

Eventually, it gets down to the final stage of the fight and Slayerage finally brings Atraks-1 to a humiliating end. Slayerage’s relief and joy are palpable at the very end.
