If you’re not too busy with the Destiny 2 PC beta, why not check out what’s happening this week in Destiny 1?

Because it’s reset time, and you know what that means. A new Nightfall, new featured raid, a few changes to Prison and Challenge of Elders, new Crucible playlists, vendor inventory reset, and all the usual benefits.

Here’s what you’ll be doing this week:

Weekly Nightfall

You’ll be tackling the Wretched Eye strike with modifiers Fresh Troops, Match Game, Catapult, and Exposure.

Fresh Troops increases the number of enemies in some squads. Match Game means you’ll have to use correct elemental damage to take down enemy shields. Catapult greatly increases your grenade recharge rate. Exposure increases you shields but they do not replenish.

Heroic playlist modifiers

Arc Burn, Specialist, Exposure.


Crucible playlist

Mayhem Clash.

Challenge of Elders

Catapult, Small Arms, Precision Kill Bonus.

  • Round 1: Wretched Knight (Hive)
  • Round 2: Keksis the Betrayed (Fallen)
  • Round 3: Overmind Minotaur (Vex)
