Strike is a 3-player activity that consists of a series of objectives culminating in a battle against a boss enemy.


Strikes can be launched directly from a destination, or from a playlist in the Vanguard Director.

Selecting the Vanguard Strike playlist from the Director will load the player into a random Strike. If there are vacant spots in the fireteam, the matchmaking system will search for additional players before launching the activity. It is possible to join a Strike that is already in progress, if there are less than 3 players in the activity. Strikes launched from this playlist are affected by certain modifiers.

Nightfall Strikes are a harder version of normal Strikes, with a score system. The Nightfall playlist consists of three random Strikes which change weekly. The players gain score mostly by defeating enemies, and the score is affected by the time spent in a Strike and the active modifiers. The fireteam leader selects which modifiers are active in the Nightfall they load in with the help of the Five of Swords Challenge Card. The players have to select their loadouts carefully, because Nightfall Strikes lock equipment, preventing it from being changed. There is no ordinary matchmaking in Nightfalls, but Clans or Seekers can queue up for a Guided Game.

Each Nightfall Strike except for Broodhold and the ones added in Shadowkeep has a unique reward which can be obtained only there.
