Destiny 2: How to Unlock Nightfall Strikes

How to Unlock Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 has quite a few options for those who reach the end game. One such option is Nightfall Strikes. These are the regular strikes with some new challenges thrown in to test just how good of a guardian you really are. They have modifiers such as time limits, different focused burns (which boosts the damage of specific elements), and other weird caveats that are applied to the action.

To unlock Nightfall Strikes, you must first gain access to Commander Zavala and his fireteam (Ikora and Cayde-6). This will happen naturally through the story, so don’t stress over it too much. Afterwards, you will get a Milestone (quest) from Zavala telling you to complete two strikes. Do so and he will have a new quest for you. You will have to build up your strength to Power Level 230 and tackle the Nightfall Strike. The recommended Power Level is 240, but as long as you’re within 10 points under, you can still start it.


For your first time, you must have the quest from Zavala, so just keep leveling up until he gives it to you. Afterwards, you can jump in as much as you want. Just make sure that you and your Destiny 2 fire team are prepared.
