Strikes

From Destiny 2 Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

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

Overview

Strikes can be launched directly from a destination, or from the Vanguard Director, which contains two playlists.

The Vanguard Strike playlist loads 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 three modifiers: one determines which element deals more damage, second provides an advantage to the players, and the third gives the team a disadvantage.

The Nightfall: the Ordeal playlist contains a single Strike, which changes weekly. Players can select the Strike's difficulty, which affects its modifiers and enemy power. Higher difficulties have no matchmaking. Nightfall Strikes use a score system, which determines the team's rewards and is affected by the time spent in a Strike and the active modifiers. Players gain score mostly by defeating enemies, but actions like collecting Orbs of Power also contribute to the team's score. Players cannot edit their loadout during a Nightfall, the equipment locks the moment a Strike is launched.

Certain Strikes have a unique reward which can be obtained only by completing their Nightfall versions.

Notes

  • Prior to Beyond Light, Nightfall Strikes used to have their own playlist separate from the Ordeal. It consisted of three Strikes which updated weekly. These Nightfalls had lower power requirement and allowed the fireteam leader to select Strike modifiers using the Five of Swords Challenge Card. There was no ordinary matchmaking in Nightfalls, but Clans or Seekers could queue up for a Guided Game.
