Destiny 2 Nightfall Guide: Pyramidion Strike Modifiers And Challenges [Last Chance]

The Pyramidion is available through October 3.


Following Destiny 2's latest weekly reset, new activities are now available in the game, one of which is the next Nightfall Strike. This one is called The Pyramidion, and it challenges players to get revenge against the Vex Mind that fouled up Asher's arm. [Update: This Nightfall will be replaced on October 3, making today your last chance to give it a try and earn rewards for this week.]

As always, there is a time limit, and this time around it can't be extended due to the Timewarp: Zero Hour modifier. The other modifier is Torrent, which greatly increase the cooldown timers on your non-Super abilities--so be sure to let the grenades fly early and often.

Now Playing: Destiny 2 Faction Rally and The Pyramidion Nightfall

As for the Pyramdion Nightfall Challenges, the first is called Speed of Dark, and you'll get it by completing the event with at least 5 minutes to spare. Unbroken, meanwhile, is unlocked when you beat the Nightfall with fewer than three deaths. Good luck with that. Finally, the Siege Engine challenge can be yours if you prevent Brakion from staying shielded for more than 40 seconds before bringing it down.

Nightfall Strikes change every week with the weekly reset, so if you don't have time or the desire to try this one, something new will pop up next week. The Pyramidion Nightfall runs through October 3.

Beat the Pyramidion Nightfall and you stand to get Powerful Gear rewards, which are among the best items you can acquire in Destiny 2. If you have not yet unlocked the Nightfall, you'll need to complete two Strikes and approach the suggested Power level of 240 before Zavala will allow you to take part in them. Matchmaking is not available, but with Guided Games now available, players have the opportunity to be matched up with members of a clan for the mission (which requires a Nightfall Ticket). Alternatively, clan members can sign up to serve as guides through the Nightfall (which does not require a Ticket).
