Destiny 2 Raids Won't Lock Your Loadouts, Though Nightfall Strikes Will
It's time to lock 'n' load.
Some activities in Destiny 2 will lock your loadout to what you went in with, but Bungie never specified which activities will have this limitation and which won't. At gamescom however, it was announced that raids (at least in hard mode) will have locked loadouts. The information originally came from a PCGamesN article based on an interview with gameplay lead, Justin Truman. The article was corrected later on, stating that Truman wasn't on about raids.
Game director Luke Smith tweeted that raids won't lock your loadout. He said "we don't want this; I just got Midnight Coup to drop, let me quit to equip and I'll rejoin".

We don't want this;

What Justin Truman was actually on about (in the interview above) was that Nightfall Strikes will lock your loadouts to make the experience more tactical.
"When the activity starts, your loadouts are restricted for the duration of that activity" Truman explained. "An example is the Nightfall Strikes, where we wanna make it really about the tactical decision-making of: 'what do I want to bring in to maximise my ability to play this strike with these modifiers on'. You have to make those decisions up front, because we then lock your ability to change your loadout for the duration".
