With the release of The Witch Queen, and the removal of the Season of the Chosen content, it is now only available through the Vanguard Ops playlist as a randomly-chosen Strike. It cannot be launched as a mission directly from the Director. The version from the Battlegrounds playlist with Champion enemies is also not available.

- This mission's name was originally Battleground: Cleansing. Its name was changed in Version 184.108.40.206, along with the War Table weekly challenge, due to potential antisemitic connotations.
