Twitch: How To Raid?

A Twitch Raid sends all your viewers at the time of the Raid to the channel you target.

Twitch Raids are a great way to make connections and provide channels with some new viewers. With the help of this feature, broadcasters can share their audiences with other channels while also growing their own community. In short, a Raid sends all your viewers at the time of the Raid to the channel you target. This guide will explain how you can raid a channel on Twitch.

How To Raid On Twitch?


Starting a Raid is quite simple. You can just follow the steps given below to start a new raid.

  • To start a Raid, you must type /raid followed by the name of the channel you want to raid in your chat. This works if you have a specific channel in mind. If you wish to raid a channel at random, you can click on the Raid Channel quick action on the dashboard and select one of the suggested channels.
  • Once you have chosen to start a Raid, a notification will appear at the top of your chat with the number of viewers in the Raid and a countdown. Viewers that do not wish to accompany you on the raid can opt-out during this time.
  • You can click on the Raid now option after 10 seconds to redirect all your viewers to the targeted channel.
  • Once your Raid is live on the channel, a message will appear in the target channel’s chat notifying them about the raid and the number of viewers.

The best time to Raid a channel is at the end of your stream. This way you will have a steady stream of viewers throughout your stream and you can take them to a different channel at the end. If you Raid another channel while you are still online, all your current viewers will be redirected from your channel to the targeted one.

This is how you can Raid a channel on Twitch. We hope that this guide was helpful to you. For more guides related to the app, check out How To Host A Channel On Twitch?
