Destiny 2 Grandmaster Nightfall This Week (June 2023): Rotation, Rewards, Power Level & More

Destiny 2 offers a multitude of PvE activities for players to pursue after finishing seasonal and expansion story content. The three-player Strikes are arguably one of the most popular activities of them all.

Nightfall Strikes are the more challenging variants of the regular strikes, featuring more hard-hitting enemies like bosses and champions. Like other PvE activities in Destiny 2, Nightfall Strikes also have difficulty tiers. They range from Adept, Hero, Legend, Master, and Grandmaster. 

The Grandmaster Nightfall Strikes is the pinnacle three-player PvE activity in Destiny 2 that drops Ascendant Shards and Adept weapons alongside other valuable loot. In every Destiny season, six Strikes are available to pursue at Grandmaster difficulty. Here are the Grandmaster Nightfall Strikes rotations and rewards for Destiny 2 Season of the Deep.
