Destiny 2 Nightfall allows its players to set up challenges using a challenge card, and it also allows you to enhance the difficulty of the game so as to obtain a higher score.
This is because if you complete Nightfall on its lowest difficulty without using any modifier, all you will gain is completing the challenge since you won’t have any reward to show for it. On the other hand, if you add modifiers to your runs by using the challenge card, you have the chance to obtain unique rewards from each strike. Note that the more you increase the modifier, the higher your chance to gain unique rewards from the strike.
Some of the Destiny 2 Nightfall rewards you can earn are powerful weapons while others are cosmetics.
The following is a list of the loot you stand to gain from each Nightfall to enable you know the ones that have rewards worth grinding for. Note that each of these items is a random drop from the last chest in each strike. Hence, you have to play the entire game to earn any Destiny 2 Nightfall loot.
