Destiny weekly reset for January 3 – Nightfall, Crucible, raid challenge changes detailed

By Sherif Saed, Tuesday, 3 January 2017 09:16 GMT

The first Destiny server reset of 2017 is upon us.


A new year is here, and though we don’t have new Destiny content just yet, the game continues to suck back many players every Tuesday to do the weekly activities.

Servers are reset on Tuesdays in Destiny, in case you only just picked up the game. With each reset, the game’s various strikes, Prison of Elders and Archon Forge bosses as well as raid boss challenges get updated.

You can find the most relevant details below:

Weekly Nightfall

The Shadow Thief is the Nightfall strike this week, with modifiers Specialist, Chaff, Match Game, and Airborne.

Specialist grants bonus damage when using special weapons. Chaff disables your radar. Match Game requires use of the correct elemental weapon to take down enemy shields. Airborne increases the damage you do while in the air.
