Nightfall Scoring and Challenge Cards Guide
After completing their first Nightfall Strike in Destiny 2, Destiny 2: Warmind players may opt-in to using Nightfall Challenge Cards to adjust point modifiers and modify the difficulty of the Prestige Nightfall Strike.
Nightfall Strike ScoringListed below is vital information that players should be aware of when participating in a Nightfall Strike:
- Scoring is team-based and the sum of individual performances
- Scoring is primarily driven by kills and secondarily by orb generation
- Score bleeds over time
- Scoring cuts off after time thresholds. At 15 minutes, new points earned are reduced by 50%. At 18 minutes, players stop earning new points and it’s a race to finish the run and post the best score
Challenge CardsWith the completion of any Nightfall Strike, Destiny 2: Warmind players will be awarded a rare-quality Challenge Card. Players who wish to pursue greater challenges can exchange this card with Xûr for the legendary-quality Challenge Card.
Challenge Cards each contain a specific series of modifiers that players may choose to activate, to modify the Nightfall difficulty and their overall Nightfall score. Note that Challenge Cards are set by the Fireteam leader and only affect the Prestige Nightfall Strike. Challenge Cards do not modify the Normal Nightfall Strike.
PLEASE NOTE: Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris players who do not own Destiny 2: Warmind and have the rare-quality Challenge Card will not be granted access to the Prestige Nightfall. Players who wish to engage in the Prestige Nightfall activity will need to own Destiny 2: Warmind.
