Want to know how to complete The Arms Dealer Nightfall in Destiny 2? The Nightfall is one of the most challenging end-game activities in Destiny 2. That’s why knowing your way around is important; otherwise, you will spend precious time figuring things out on your own. Luckily, this guide has got you covered. It has all the details you need to complete the Arms Dealers Nightfall, including a list of the best weapon systems for the tasks ahead.
Destiny 2: How to Complete The Arms Dealer Nightfall
Completing the Arms Dealer Nightfall challenge requires defeating Barrier and Unstoppable champions plus a host of other enemies, including the boss, Bracus Zahn. The following breakdown will make it easier for you.
How to Defeat Barrier Champions
Barrier champions are like every other enemy in Destiny 2. They take average amounts of damage when you shoot them, but they can respawn a shield around them. Penetrating this shield will require field-piercing weapons like Anti-Barrier Rounds and Anti-Barrier Hand cannon.
Here is a list of the top weapons for defeating Barrier champions:
- Arbalest: Exotic Fusion Rifle
- Dead Man’s Tale: Scout Rifle
- Under Your Skin: Precision Bow
How to Defeat Unstoppable Champions
Unstoppable champions have crazy stamina. To defeat them, you need weapon systems that can Stagger the enemy. A great example is the Unstoppable Hand Cannon. You can also apply a mod called Unstoppable Melee to make your arc melee abilities powerful enough to Stagger them. As far as weapons go, the following will serve you well in your battles against Unstoppable champions.
- Outbreak Perfected: Exotic Pulse Rifle
- Malfeasance: Exotic Hand Cannon
- Graviton Lance: Exotic Pulse Rifle
The Arms Dealer Nightfall Game Strategy
Using these weapons is just part of the winning strategy. The next part requires knowing what lies ahead. The GM will begin in a room with an Unstoppable Champion and a Barrier Champion. These will spawn alongside Void-shielded Incendiors, sniper Psions, and regular cabal enemies. Your mission here is to kill every one of them.
Immediately you enter the room, stun the Unstoppable champion with your most powerful weapon. This will do two things: inflict severe damage on them and take out some other enemies caught in the explosion. After defeating the Unstoppable champion, shift focus to the Barrier champion. If you have Revitalizing Blast, it will be enough to burst through its barrier.
Press the console to access a new area when done with the first room. The top target here is the Cabal Thresher ship flying overhead. Shoot it with a rocket launcher and finish it with your primary weapons where necessary. Subsequently, clear the area of any Cabal soldier, Phalanxes, Psions, and the mini-boss. Follow this up by wiping out the Unstoppable Champion alongside the Cabal soldiers that will appear. If you are successful at that, a Solar Charge will become available for you to pick up. Carry it to the ledge on the right and use it against the War Beasts and the Barrier Champion, who will spawn.
The Tank Room
The next rooms follow a similar pattern except for the Tank room. Once you make it here, focus all your energy on taking the thing down because the tank can kill you. The tank room also has six Unstoppable Champions, which adds to its overall danger. Finally, you have to defeat the Boss, Bracus Zahn. This will not be easy, but because you will have gained battle experience by completing previous challenges, it won’t be too challenging.
