Destiny 2 Grandmaster Nightfalls Update, Falling Guillotine Sees Change

Patching a Backlit Canopy

If you’ve been hackin’ and wackin’ with Destiny 2’s premiere sword, the Falling Guillotine, you’re probably aware that its damage output has been affected by a bug. “Vortex Frame Swords” were failing to register their heavy attacks properly, and unfortunately, the Falling Guillotine lands in this category. The good news is while Bungie has nerfed Guillotine, it’s still more than powerful enough to take down bosses.

Additionally, updates to the way the Grandmaster Nightfalls work have been made. In an attempt to encourage more players to try them out, an upgraded loot pool has been implemented that’s sure to get Destiny fashionistas buzzing.

Increase Masterwork material drops for Grandmaster Nightfall difficulty.

  • Grandmaster completion at Platinum, Gold, and Silver levels now have higher chances of dropping an Exotic armor item.
  • Grandmaster completion at Platinum level now guarantees one Ascendant Shard (with a small chance at one additional), and four Enhancement Prisms (with a moderate chance at 1-2 additional).

  • Grandmaster completion at Gold level now guarantees two Enhancement Prisms (with a moderate chance at two additional).
  • Grandmaster completion at Silver level now has a small chance at two Enhancement Prisms.

It’s been noted amongst the community that while this may be a step in the right direction, the foundation of Grandmasters is wholly unbalanced. Until they’re given a complete overhaul, many have resigned themselves to never even bothering with them.
