Want to know what this week’s Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon is? Each week you have a chance to get a different weapon for completing Nightfall Strikes, and since Season of the Lost, fan-favorite legacy weapons from the original Destiny have been added to the rotation. New seasons often introduce new weapons into the rotation, so knowing the Nightfall weapon schedule ahead of time is more important than ever.
In case you don’t know what Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon means, Nightfall: The Ordeal is a playlist available in the Vanguard menu, alongside the basic Strike playlist. Each week, a different strike is chosen as Nightfall and offered in five increasing difficulties, with tougher enemies, hard modifiers, and increasing enemy power levels.
Coveted Nightfall weapons have a chance to drop from any Nightfall Strike difficulty, but it’s much more likely at higher levels. According to YouTuber Aztecross, your best bet for farming each week’s Nightfall weapon is to set the Strike to Master difficulty. You should also note that there is no automatic matchmaking above Hero difficulty, so you will need to build a team.
What is the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon this week?
The Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon from December 6 to 13, Mindbender’s Ambition, a legendary solar-powered shotgun. Popular perks for this weapon include Threat Detector, Auto-Loading Holster, Incandescent, and One-Two Punch.
This week’s Nightfall attack is Insight Terminus, which takes place on Nessus. Nightfall ends with a fight against Kargen, a Cabal Psion trying to control a Vex network. Many Guardians find this strike to be one of the easiest Nightfalls in the game. Completing Insight Terminus gives players a chance to earn Mindbender’s Ambition.
Grandmaster Nightfalls will return later in the season and is not available at this time. Upon returning, players can earn Adept versions of Nightfall weapons by completing the Nightfall Weekly on Grandmaster difficulty.
Just like in Trials of Osiris, Adept weapons get +3 to every stat (except impact) when mastered, as well as the usual +10 to master stat, and are the only weapons that can equip powerful Adept mods, so they are worth seeking out when available.
