Nightfall exclusive loot and rewards

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

Some Strikes in Destiny 2 have Nightfall exclusive loot. 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. Check out our Nightfall weapon rotation & schedule for a look at which weapons are available. Though a Strike may be removed, it's Nightfall exclusive loot may still be available as a weapon drop.

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. Make sure you also take the time to defeat the Champions. Defeating all of them will yield Platinum ranking, increasing your odds of getting a weapon.

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.
