Watch as a Single Destiny Player Dominates Trials of Osiris Without Dying

3 on 1? No problem

Trials of Osiris is essentially Destiny's most intense, hardcore player-versus-player mode. It pits two teams of three against each other in a battle to the death, and once a combatant is downed, they can only be revived by their allies. In other words, there isn't much room for error.
