All Strikes and Nightfalls - Destiny 2

Every Strike in Destiny 2, including the expansion which it was added, the name of the boss, and its Nightfall drop.


Strikes and Nightfalls are a Destiny 2 staple. These long-form missions give players some light mechanics to work with, a boss to kill, and maybe some rewards to chase. With a library of content in flux, knowing what Strikes are available and when they were added can be tough, but it’s important for those chasing titles and Triumphs.

All Strikes

The following Strikes are sorted in the DLC they were added, from the base game to the latest expansion. As of the release of Shadowkeep, there have been 17 Strikes introduced to Destiny 2, with only three of them not including a Nightfall drop.
