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. Here’s exactly how you can get Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2.
These Nightfall Strikes are simply 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. Just play on through the main campaign. Afterwards, you will get a Milestone (quest) from Zavala telling you to complete two strikes.
Do what’s asked of you 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. Just, you know, good luck. It’s definitely a whole new challenge for players.
For your first time doing them, by the way, you must have the quest from Zavala. Thus, you’re going to need to 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, of course!
That’s it! That’s how to get Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2. For more guides and help on Destiny 2, be sure to check out our wiki. If you have a specific question, leave it in the comments down below and we’ll try our best to help you out.
