Destiny’s Nightfall strikes are currently broken

1 min read


When Destiny works, it’s magical. All of Bungie’s technical expertise combined with tight gunplay and solid teamwork make for an exhilirating session or twelve. The best such session for Guardians on the go however? Easily the weekly Nightfall strikes, which have been described in the past as being p***-difficult by the unprepared.

This week’s Nightfall Strike is even harder than usual however. Most likely due to the fact that it’s completely broken.

That’s the word according to many Guardians over at Reddit, who are having no luck with the Nightfall Strike right now in the Sunless room. As redditor RumorsOFsurF wrote:

Anyone else having problems in the Nightfall? We went through the first half with no enemies, then the door to the ogre wouldn’t open after we cleared the room. Tried a wipe, but still nothing.

We were celebrating how easy this one was until the door wouldn’t open. Ugh.

I’m busy checking the Strike myself, but numerous forums and other players are also reporting similar issues, about a door being extra difficult to get through or enemies not even spawning. This weeks strike playlist isn’t exactly forgiving either, as the current modifiers are in play:

  • Epic
  • Grounded
  • Fresh Troops
  • Match Game
  • Exposure

Bungie will most likely have this sorted…eventually. But don’t make any plans tonight to get your Nightfall Strike action on.

    I stopped playing Destiny because I couldn’t find a reason to keep playing

      I stopped playing because the Beta ended.

      And that is a good reason. I sometimes wonder in the opposite direction. A game MUST be played, I am enjoying, but find it hard to define why. I can list faults easily, annoyances and so forth, but the main reason certain games are so enjoyable?

    Oh No! This really pisses me off man, I mean come on! Bungie! Fix this! People are dependent on you for making their evenings mean something! http://38.media.tumblr.com/3a71ab96fa337eccb4cb21cdf804a554/tumblr_n7bedzqqkx1qdfs7xo5_250.gif

    Personally been finding the Nightfall Strikes a bit easy lately. Got a great Fireteam who communicate well which makes it easier. Now if it’s a bit more difficult than usual that’s great. If nobody has been able to clear it then I’d consider it broken. The Nightfall is supposed to be tough, impossible even without a good team.

    So Darren, did you manage to clear it?
