Want to know what this week’s Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon is? Each week you’ve got a chance at a different weapon for completing Nightfall Strikes, and as of Season of the Chosen, you can now get fan-favourite legacy weapons from the original Destiny. Three more of these weapons arrived in Season of the Splicer, so it’s more important than ever to know in advance the Nightfall weapon schedule.
In case all these words are new to you, Nightfall: The Ordeal is a playlist available in the Vanguard menu, alongside the basic Strike playlist. Each week, a different Strike is chosen as the Nightfall, and offered in five escalating difficulties, with harder enemies, challenging modifiers, and enemy power levels cranking up.
The coveted Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop from any Nightfall Strike difficulty, but it’s far more likely at higher levels. Your best bet for farming each week’s Nightfall weapon is to set the Strike to Master difficulty, according to YouTuber Aztecross. You should also note that there’s no automatic matchmaking above Hero difficulty, however, so you’ll need to get a squad together.
