So today, we’re going to tackle the weekly Destiny updates and bounties.
As for our weekly Crucible mode, we have this chaotic mode back. I was actually waiting for this to turn up during the festival of the lost, since this mode gives you such a high killing streak. Just imagine, using a sunbreaker(like in my video below) in every matches, obliterating other guardians in your way.
Nightfall The Shield Brothers:
Next, we have the weekly Nightfall. This is where we really sit down and plan out our strategies for this weekly nightfall features these buffs.
- Epic – This modifier is always turned on for every nightfall there was. It also means that there would be a large number of enemies too, with a lot of majors to kill. Majors are those enemies with yellow health bar, they’re not really easy, nor hard to kill.
- Small Arms – All Primary Weapon damage is increased.
- Match Game – Enemy shields resist unmatched elemental damage.
- Grounded – Guardians take increased damage while airborne.
- Trickle – All abilities recharge very slowly.
Now, the trick here is, you want to finish this with a very very versatile fireteam. As we all know, the band brothers is a pain in the ass when it comes to the last part with the wrong fireteam. Communications isn’t really needed, but I highly recommend it for those who can’t get through the tank and the first stage of that jumping brother.
At my first try, we actually went through a lot of pain getting through the tank. In this mode, not only the tank’s accuracy is over 90%, the large number of enemies(EPIC) are accurate as well. So it’s best if you have at least a Titan Defender in your fireteam or a Warlock Stormcaller. The Titan Defender can always buff up the team’s defense with “The Blessings of Light” ability of the Ward of the Dawn. Don’t use Weapons of Light if you’re planning to go for a Defender in your fireteam. Also, use the defender’s shield barrier, turn it to either the unbreakable or the orb making perk for melee. Next, if you either go for a Warlock, the choices are two. It’s either you go for a Storm Caller, or a Sun Singer. A Sun Singer can be pretty independent as it just resurrect when it dies, but you should also know when you should really resurrect as the Trickle modifier is turned on. Next is the other member of the fireteam, it’s up to him whether if he uses a hunter or a sunbreaker. In our case, we went for a Hunter’s Nightstalker. The tether ability of the Nightstalker is a big help in the last sequence of the Shield Brother’s comeback. They’re also back with at least six shielded majors on the field, so tethering the majors is a must. Don’t tether the jumping brother, as it doesn’t have much effect on him, plus, the mobs will kill you if you don’t deal with them.
You can still crouch in the first sequence of the boss. We did it in every try, but sometimes, it also fails. For it not to fail, you should really stick close to him, moving around him, not moving away. Also, if you’re a defender, don’t use the titan bubble if the jumping brother is chasing you and you’re the last guardian standing. Lose him first before you pop up a bubble for yourself.
As I have finished it with all of my characters, it’s pretty much the norm for a 300+ light to get 310 equipments from the rewards. I suggest popping up three of coins when you get to the boss for more exotic drops. It doesn’t work 100%, but it’s been tested that popping up three of coins before the boss fight, gives you at least 50% chance of getting an exotic engram out of those bastards. I tried it, but I didn’t get any in my tries, I used at least three per try.
I’ve heard that Petra has new bounties in her arsenal as well with Lord Shaxx. I’m gonna do it for the following days, whoever wants to play along with me, just add me up in PSN or in your PS4. Simply look for shi0n-kai-san, make sure to message me after I add you.
