Events are one of the key features in the game Crucible.


Occasionally, the planet will trigger an event that will shift the dynamic on Crucible. Sometimes these can be helpful, like a large med kit supply drop or a tall needle-like Amplifier that will deliver a powerful buff to whomever can claim it. Sometimes they're less helpful, like an increase in the spawning of spitter plants or a harmful planet-wide cosmic storm. Keep an eye on your alerts to know what you need to do – and remember that everyone else is reacting too.


Each match will have one scenario, which lasts the whole match and is messaged during the pre-match screen. Matches also contain multiple objectives that appear one at a time throughout the course of a match, altering the flow of play and requiring players think on their feet. Understanding the scenario right from the beginning is important so that players can focus their strategy, including how they approach things like hives and amplifiers. Objectives are dynamic, but messaged during the course of a match so that players will always know when and where the next objectives will be.

  • Scenarios – Every match has a scenario active at the start, which will last through the entirety of the match. The game’s scenario is displayed during the pre-match sequence. Knowing the scenario before entering the match is an important part of knowing what to expect at all points in the game.
  • Objectives – Objectives are not messaged to players at the start of a match. After 90 seconds elapse in a game, a 4-minute timer starts for the first objective. Ten seconds after an objective concludes (i.e., all objectives for a given event have been claimed), a new objective event will be chosen and its 4-minute timer will begin.
