Destiny players are a clever, talented, funny and wildly handsome lot, who produce some terrific videos. Here’s the best of the best this week.


Destiny players usually make the weekly Nightfall their first priority, as it awards a fat XP and reputation gain boost until the next reset. This challenging Strike missions are often completed by talented solo players, and since death means restarting the whole thing, veteran Guardians don’t usually bother fighting through non-essential battles, choosing to sprint through them instead.

This week’s Nightfall is Cerberus Vae, a Mars mission where you take down multiple lieutenants (including one in a tank!) before facing off against a Colossus Ultra. Getting to the boss quickly is easy; just ride your Sparrow past the guards at the gate, and then jump to sail over the heads of the troops within the first room.

Or at least, that’s the plan – but Adriaan Bestman met some unexpected resistance in a video called “DENIED”.

Ah ha ha! In the realm of “things that are pretty funny”, here’s one for all you Warlocks sick of hearing how OP your class is. Watch the mystical effects of Gradus‘s Nova Bomb on the Crota’s End Oversoul:

You saw that right: eight damage. Lololololololol.


I don’t know about you but I really enjoy watching people die in really frustrating ways. Here’s Jose Rubiani III resolutely plugging away at the Nightfall only to be killed by – well. Let’s just say he should hand in his driver’s license immediately.

Bug of the week

It wouldn’t be a Destiny video round up without a nod to the bugs that we love, hate and love to hate, and this one’s definitely in the second category. Watch what happens when this fireteam led by liam barton finally takes down Phogoth in The Summoning Pits Strike mission on the Moon:

I bet some controllers were crushed in the wake of that. You can’t blame that on lag – his entire health bar is back! If this ever happens to me Bungie is gonna get a strongly worded letter.

Crucible highlight

We’ve already featured this one in its own story, but here’s GamingBlu showing off a true competitive spirit in turning around a Crucible match – in high style:
