Reflecting on Lightfall Recap

Grandmaster Nightfalls Available Next Week

To recap on Grandmaster Nightfalls, here are the main points to remember:

  • Your Power level is capped 25 levels below the activity level. For Season 20, that means you will be at most 1815 while combatants are at 1840.
  • Combatants are tougher, deal more damage, and are more aggressive.
  • Champions are abundant, so you need to have appropriate weapons to handle them.
  • There is one Burn that will make you take 25% more damage from a particular element.
  • There are two Elemental Surges and Overcharged weapons that grant a 25% damage increase.
  • Revives are limited and Darkness will encroach after a certain amount of time, making it impossible to revive or be revived.

For a more detailed explanation of how these variables will affect you and your team, check out this article on challenging content in Destiny 2.

Heist Battlegrounds Mid-Season Changes

In an effort to make Heist Battlegrounds more manageable there will be some changes made to them with the mid-Season update. Here’s a look at those changes.

Heist Battlegrounds Mars

  • Reduced spawn frequency on higher difficulties.
  • Increased map score multiplier
  • Added extra ammo crate

Other Battleground changes

  • Reduced combatant waves in boss fights
  • Decreased Deathtongue Choristers’ health
  • Same health for Hive runes on all difficulties
  • Thinned out Fallen tripmines in Heist Battleground: Moon

Root of Nightmare Raid Jacket

Players who finished the Root of Nightmares raid before the weekly reset on March 21st will be able to pre-order the Root of Nightmares Raid Jacket through Bungie Rewards until April 30th.

To learn about the qualifying criteria and purchase deadlines for other Bungie rewards, players can visit the Bungie Rewards Store Page.

Destiny 2 Armory Collection

The Destiny 2 Armory Collection comprises the Forsaken Pack and the 30th Anniversary Pack, but it doesn’t provide immediate access to any items or Exotics beyond those specified in each pack.

If players already have the Forsaken Pack, they won’t receive additional Forsaken Ciphers by acquiring the Armory Collection.

Destiny 2 Cutscenes Archive

Cutscenes are now available to watch on the official DestinyTheGame YouTube channel. Here are some FAQs from Bungie regarding cutscenes.

What about the other expansions and future Seasons?

“Almost every cutscene from Destiny 2 should eventually be uploaded. We are hoping to add one or two Seasons every few months.”

But that’s not my Guardian.

“True. Because these are all recorded videos, the footage couldn’t be customized for each viewer. However, our team did try and capture these cutscenes with a variety of Guardians across all classes and races to really showcase who our Guardians are.”

Can I share my recordings on YouTube too?

“We ask that you leave the cutscenes up to us. We totally understand (and allow) clips to be used during your video creation for MOTW or other content creations needs, but full cutscenes will need to remain on our channel.”

If you have any questions, head over to the @Destiny2Team account.
