destiny2 10 - Some loadout tips (and a couple strategies) for this season's grandmaster nighfalls
Loading...

After completing the Conquerer seal a second time, I decided to do a short write-up on the team compositions, weapons and tactics my team used this season. If this season is anything like the last, beginning from next week all grandmaster nightfalls will be available simultaneously.

We went for platinum in all strikes and did not use any cheeses.

Some of the loadouts from the early strikes might be a little bit off (since I had to rebuild these from my memory) but I think they are more or less accurate.

If you are just starting with the Conquerer title this is my difficulty rating (from easy to hard):
Savathûn’s Song < Lake of Shadows < A Garden World = Strange Terrain < The Festering Core < The Corrupted.

In all the strikes I played a Top Tree Nova Warlock with Contraverse Hold. There are many mods that make the build even better, if anyone is interested I can share the full build as well.

Let's dive right into the strikes (ordered by appearance):

The Corrupted
Unstoppable Champions, Overload Champions, Hive and Taken

Warlock: Top Tree Nova

Mountaintop
Tyranny of Heaven
One Thousand Voices

Exotic Armor and Mods
Contraverse Hold
Overload Grenades

Hunter: Bottom Tree Solar

Mountaintop
Inaugural Address (Arc)
Anarchy

Exotic Armor
Celestial Nighthawk

Hunter: Bottom Tree Solar

Mountaintop
Inaugural Address (Void)
Xenophage

Exotic Armor
Celestial Nighthawk

Noteworthy Tactics and Tips

– At the beginning of the strike go to the right side, kill the guard in front of the gate (and any champions) and head through the door

– On the elevator: Charge a couple of orbs for later use on adds (throw them to a teammate and make them drop the orb by switching weapons)

– If you are going for platinum make sure to kill the champions before killing the ogres in the light/dark section of the strike

– In the boss fight: Make sure to spray some anarchy below the boss to instantly kill some adds. Use the two golden guns to make Sedia go through her portal as fast as possible (and follow her)

– Taken Armaments help a LOT in this strike

– Instantly kill the boss at the end: Place bubble in front of the back left portal and shoot the boss while he moves around
