Nightfall weapon rotation schedule
With the release of Season 13, Season of the Chosen, the Nightfalls in Destiny 2 received an update. Players were already familiar with the Nightfall exclusive rewards, but now Bungie has added unique weapons to the pool. Each week players will be able to farm Nightfalls in a bid to get a god roll of one of the following weapons.

Nightfall weapon drop chance
In terms of the drop chance for the Nightfall weapons, the tougher the Nightfall, the better chance you have of getting a weapon.
- Hero: Uncommon
- Legend: Common
- Master: Common
- Grandmaster: Guaranteed
For those that just want the gun, and don’t care so much about Ascendant Shards, then running the Legend difficulty will be the best bang for your buck. Unfortunately, there isn’t any concrete info (yet) on the exact drop percentages.
The new Nightfall weapon rotation schedule certainly makes Nightfalls more rewarding for those looking to acquire better gear. It could be worth taking some time to farm up a great roll, as these will no doubt be some top-performing weapons in PvE and Crucible.
