The Nightfall weapon schedule will be updated manually until the rotation is known, once it is known the complete rotation will be added here.

NOTES

GRANDMASTER DETAILS

  • Unlocks on July 5, 2022
  • Combatants take and deal more damage, and are more aggressive.
  • Champions appear more, revives are limited, and Darkness encroaching will require revives within a certain time period.
  • Grandmaster difficulty has a chance to drop Adept Nightfall weapons, Adept mods, Ascendant Shards, and Enhancement Prisms upon completion.

Resources: Schedule

For a look ahead, check out the Nightfall Weapon Schedule. Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop with random rolls every week from Nightfall completions, there is one old weapon and one newly added weapon. Adept Nightfall Weapons only have a chance to drop from Grandmaster difficulty.

As of Season 16, The Hollowed Lair and Broodhold strikes will be added to the Destiny Content Vault (removed) since The Tangled Shore be also be vaulted.

Special thanks to Nekrek for collecting Nightfall data (# of champs and shields shown on infographics and Google chart)!

Nightfall Weapons and Items

Nightfall: The Ordeal weapons have a chance to drop at the end of the activity depending on your medal (Platinum, Gold, etc.) and difficulty. Master difficulty will give you the highest chance at a drop of the base versions of these weapons. Adept difficulty weapons have a chance to drop at the end of a Grandmaster Nightfall. Drop chance also dependent on your medal. Slay enough Champions to hit Platinum and you will have a high chance at an Adept weapon.
