NIGHTMARE CONTAINMENT COMMUNITY EVENT

Nightmare Containment is free-to-play public event aboard the Derelict Leviathan. Take on intense battles against Cabal and Scorn and dive a little deeper into the nightmare reflection of our world.

This is how the Scythe works

Light Attack: 

  • A horizontal slice that launches out a wide Solar projectile. 
  • 4-hit combo.
  • Hitting enemies with the light-attack projectile Scorches them (30+20 stacks) and deals damage. 
  • The light attack also does melee damage to nearby targets when the player swings. 

Air Attack: 

  • Launches out a single Solar projectile with a cool spinning slice. Same projectile as the light attack, just with more aerial flare. 

Heavy Attack: 

  • Slam the Scythe into the ground and send out a fan-shaped group of AOE flame damage.
  • Hitting enemies with the heavy attack Scorches them (50+40 stacks) and deals damage. 

Scythe Perk: 

  • When you defeat enemies with the Scythe, you spawn orbs of healing Solar light that float back to you and grant Restoration +2. 

Just like with Void 3.0, Solar’s revamp can be done through Ikora in the Tower before meditating at the kiosk near her to lock in the newly learned disciplines. You may or may not have noticed that there are a few select Fragments are locked. Don’t worry, it wasn’t Telesto this time, this is actually intentional. There are four Fragments that can be unlocked via the community working together.

Guardians can unlock additional Fragments for Solar 3.0 by completing a number of Nightmare Containments. Each Guardian that fights the good fight will count as a completion, so having a full fireteam that is focused on the objective will benefit groups greatly. Basically, double the progression for a team of six versus, say, a team of three. The goal is to hit 20-million completions as a community. When we hit that goal, those four Solar 3.0 Fragments will be unlocked and ready to pick up from Ikora

There was some confusion during the launch of Season of the Haunted and Bungie wanted to explain what happened and what is intentional. The four locked Fragments were always intended for this particular community-driven initiative, but there was a small hiccup on day-one. To clarify this, the four Fragments that will unlock after the above community effort are:  

  • Ember of Empyrean 
  • Ember of Char 
  • Ember of Ashes 
  • Ember of Wonder 

However, some players reported being able to receive some of these early. This is connected to something the team found in their investigation that allows early access for veteran players who had previously built into the Solar subclass, whereas newly-created Guardians still have these locked. This has caused some players to unlock Ember of Ashes and Embers of Wonder, which were intended to be locked. Also, some players were unable to acquire Fragments that should have been unlocked for everyone at the start of Season of the Haunted. Those players were not able to receive two Fragments, which were meant to be available on day one, called Ember of Eruption and Ember of Searing

The Bungie team has made the decision that they don’t want to remove any Fragments from people who have unlocked them, and the goal is for all six Fragments to unlock when we hit the community goal mentioned above.

CHARITY EMOTE

Loyal Companion, 1000 Silver

Available in the Eververse Store (Seasonal Tab).

Christine at Bungie: “Season 17 kicks off with a heartwarming in-game opportunity for Guardians to further the Bungie Foundation’s mission of supporting children’s health and wellbeing by purchasing the Loyal Companion emote from the Eververse. Not only do players get an adorable canine companion to interact with in the form of a cute new emote, but 100% of proceeds will also be donated to the Bungie Foundation.”

The Loyal Companion isn’t just any dog. He’s a real-life Belgian Malinois named Artemis and the best friend of a very special Guardian whose story Bungie will share with you in the coming weeks. A story of resilience, recovery, and triumph only made possible by the Destiny community and his dog Artemis.
