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 ever since Season of the Lost, fan-favourite legacy weapons from the original Destiny have been added to the rotation. New seasons often introduce new weapons into the rotation, so it’s more important than ever to know in advance the Nightfall weapon schedule.
In case you don’t know what the 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 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.
What is the Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon this week?
The Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon from September 6 to September 13 is Duty Bound, a Legendary kinetic auto rifle with an Adaptive Frame and solid recoil and handling stats. Ideal rolls include Perpetual Motion, Smallbore, Appended Mag, Tactical Mag, Rampage, and Compulsive Reloader.
This week’s Nightfall strike is Fallen S.A.B.E.R. This is one of the most easiest strikes in Destiny 2 and involves fighten Fallen enemies, culminating in a fight with a Heavy Shank boss. Successfully completing it will give players the opportunity to earn the Duty Bound.
Grandmaster Nightfalls will retrun on October 4. At that time, players will be able to earn Adept versions of Nightfall weapons by completing the weekly Nightfall on Grandmaster difficulty. Until then, Adept weapons are not available as Nightfall drops.
Just as in Trials of Osiris, Adept weapons get +3 to every stat (except impact) when masterworked, as well as the usual +10 to the masterwork stat, and are the only guns that can equip powerful Adept mods, so they’re well worth seeking out when they’re available.
