Destiny Weekly Reset For February 28: Nightfall, Crucible And Challenge Mode Changes Detailed

Bungie’s weekly reset of the Destiny servers has come once again, bringing with it the usual changes to the shooter’s various PvE and PvP content. Nightfall, Prison of Elders and Crucible have all received their respective rotations, with past modifiers and bosses returning from previous resets to keep Guardians on their toes.

The Fallen S.A.B.E.R. mission takes up residence as this week’s Nightfall Strike, with Fresh Troops, Chaff, Grounded and Brawler being the modifiers you’ll need to contend with in your mission to save Rasputin from the Fallen forces. There’s no modifier that buffs elemental damage this time around, so I’d recommend using a loadout you’re both familiar and comfortable with, although you’ll want to skip out on any gear that upgrades your radar, as the Chaff modifier disables it completely. For armor, any piece of Exotic gear that powers up your melee is best, thanks to Brawler increasing its damage. The remaining two modifiers, Grounded and Fresh Troops, increase the damage you take while airborne and enemy count respectively.

Oh, and don’t forget to pay Aksis a visit in Rise of Iron‘s Wrath of the Machine raid. The SIVA-spliced big bad is this week’s obstacle to be overcome in order to complete Challenge Mode. Special armor Ornaments and an emblem are yours for the taking, should you emerge victorious.

For the more competitive-minded players among you, this week’s Crucible playlist is Mayhem Rumble, although it’s likely to be overshadowed by the return of Iron Banner. The non-level restricted event kicks off today and promises all sorts of lucrative rewards. See here for all the details.

Destiny: Rise of Iron is available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Destiny 2, meanwhile, is still on course for a release this year.
