Nightfall exclusive loot rewards - Destiny 2

Discover which weapons are exclusive to what Nightfall Strikes in Destiny 2 so you can farm the perfect weapon or complete a Title.


Nightfall exclusive loot in Destiny 2 is some of the best gear in the game. You’ve likely been killed by Mindbender’s Ambition dozens of times in Crucible and you could be chasing the perfect Militia’s Birthright to help grind the Mountaintop. Whether you’re after a god roll Nightfall weapon, or just trying to round out some Triumphs and Titles, here are all the Nightfall exclusive weapons and other loot.

Nightfall exclusive loot and rewards

Nightfall exclusive loot rewards Destiny 2
Horror's Least is a Nightfall exclusive weapon from The Corrupted, and a required gun for the Cursebreaker title.

Each Strike in Destiny 2 has Nightfall exclusive loot, with the exception being any PlayStation Strikes. The reason for this is that a PlayStation Strike is exclusive to the platform, meaning it cannot be a Nightfall, as the Nightfalls must be available across all systems.

It might also be worth noting that this Nightfall exclusive loot can, as the name suggests, only be acquired by playing the Strike when it's in the Nightfall rotation. You cannot earn this loot by simply loading the Strike up via the planet or by playing the Strike playlist. 

Note that not all Strikes and Nightfalls are listed here, only those that reward Nightfall exclusive loot. As of Season of the Chosen, players can also earn a Nightfall weapon that drops on a three-week rotation: Shadow Price, The Swamp, and Palindrome. This will likely change in future Seasons. Check out the Shacknews guide on all Seasons and release dates for an overview.

How to get Nightfall loot

In order to earn a Nightfall weapon, you will need to be prepared for a lot of farming. While you may receive a weapon in a run or two a god roll may require dozens of completions.

Ideally, you will want to grind away at Nightfalls with two other like-minded people. Having a Fireteam with a unified goal of going as fast as possible will cut the time down drastically. In the event you don’t have access to two friends who want to farm, there are plenty of resources online, such as various LFG systems or even the Fireteams subreddit.

Now that you know the exclusive loot and weapons for each Nightfall, you can get to farming that perfectly rolled Militia’s Birthright or Mindbender’s Ambition. For more helpful guides and tables, check out the Shacknews Destiny 2 complete strategy guide.
