Hello Guardians!

Another week has passed us by and we move into another reset period. This week we get 3 more artifacts, a new nightfall and a change to the heroic strikes modifiers. Read on to gain some insight on whats to come and how to conquer!

Some exciting changes are fast approaching us! Check out bungie.net / twitch on Wednesday for the first sneak peak into the new update. You can view the teaser trailer below.



Challenge mode – Vosik



Nightfall – Recommended light 380

This week’s Nightfall is Cerberus Vae III. Just beyond their warbase, Valus Ta’aurc, Fleet Commander of the Cabal Siege Dancers, hides in an Imperial Land Tank. Fight through his guard and stop this terror before he destroys all of Freehold.

The modifiers for this week are as follows:-

Epic – Heavily shielded and highly aggressive enemies appear in great numbers.

Berserk – Minions of the Darkness won’t flinch, even after massive damage.

Brawler – Guardian melee damage is greatly increased. 

Fresh Troops – Some squads have been fortified with additional reinforcements.

Airborne – Players deal more damage while in the air.

This week the nightfall should prove no problem to any Guardian. The only annoying issue comes from the Phalanx’s since Berserk will prevent them from flinching and thus hitting them. Make sure to take advantage with jumping and rockets.


SIVA crisis heroic strikes – Recommended light 350

This week will see another selection of modifiers to keep you on your toes. Remember your first completion of the week will net you a Treasures of the Dawning box!

Arc Burn – Damage using Arc weapons and abilities is doubled, but you will receive triple damage from such sources.

Juggler – Ammo does not drop for the currently equipped weapon.

Catapult – Grenades recharge at a greater rate.
