‘Grandmaster’ Nightfall is a seasonal PvE playlist in Destiny 2 that features the game’s highest-difficulty Nightfall Strikes. Being a highly unforgiving endgame activity that is arguably even more demanding than Raids, it rewards players who are up for the task with the best gear in the MMORPG. To confront the challenge this game mode presents, you will require the most powerful exotic weapons and armor in the game, together with a good build for your Guardian and a well-coordinated fireteam. Here are all the details you need to know about the upcoming Grandmaster Nightfall in Season 19: Season of the Seraph!

The game recommends that players have at least 1630 Power Level before attempting the Strikes on the Grandmaster difficulty. Even if you have the recommended power level, don’t expect the missions to become any easier! These Strikes are meant to put every player’s game sense to the test and demand a thorough understanding of the game’s mechanics to progress through.
[UPDATE | 01/14/23]: The recommended Power Level for GM Nightfalls has been reduced from 1630 to 1580 now.

When Does GM Nightfall Start in S19: Season of the Seraph?

The playlist option is currently accessible in-game inside the ‘VANGUARD’ section, but you won’t be able to launch the Strikes until January 17 – because that’s when this season’s Grandmaster Nightfall is scheduled to start. The playlist will be available for six weeks after its opening and will conclude with the release of the Lightfall expansion on February 28. A new Strike will come into the rotation each week, which skilled players may push themselves to complete to receive the finest rewards.

Season 19 will see the following six Strikes rotated into the GM Nightfall playlist every week:

  • Insight Terminus
  • Scarlet Keep
  • Birthplace of the Vile
  • The Corrupted
  • The Glassway
  • Warden of Nothing
