One of the most exciting parts of new content releases in Destiny 2 is the raid race. Fireteams worldwide compete for the chance to become the first in the world to clear Bungie's latest gauntlet.
So, when a new raid is announced, you can undertake steps to prepare. Primarily, players will want to make sure their Light Level is as high as possible, they have plenty of Rally Banners to keep ammo and supers full, have unlocked a bevy of Seasonal Artifact mods, and have a few different loadouts to bring with them.
Grind out Light Levels
This may be the most important step of all. Raids are some of the most challenging content to be found in Destiny 2, and there's no reason to make it any more challenging by going in underleveled. So, completing campaigns and weekly activities are crucial to getting players' Light Levels high enough.

Rally Banners Galore
On a day one raid, there are going to be a lot of wipes. Many fireteams will take over a dozen hours to complete a raid, assuming they can. Rally Banners will restore ammo and supers at each checkpoint to fuel those attempts. Coming fully loaded from Hawthorne is just good raid etiquette.
Seasonal Artifact Mods
New raids typically accompany the release of a new season and will come a week or two after said season's release. Seasonal Artifact mods are a great way to get a leg up on encounters and provide unique perks not otherwise available in the game.
Test out New Weapons
New content typically means a new arsenal of weapons to test out. While it's okay to have some tried-and-true guns at your side, don't turn a blind eye to the new offerings. They may come with new perks or combos that could turn them into instant favorites.
As mentioned previously, running a new raid and figuring out the mechanics can take upwards of a dozen hours or more. Having plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you going is going to be important. After all, it's hard to make good calls on an empty stomach.
