Beginning on September 19, and running till the next Destiny 2 weekly reset on September 26, the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike will challenge players with a variety of different mods, including Attrition, Prism, and Timewarp: Anomalies. We'll explain all these and more in detail, in our Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike guide.
For all things Destiny 2-related here at USgamer, head over to our Destiny 2 guides walkthrough hub, where you can be sure to find walkthrough guides for every other Strike in the game, as well as comprehensive breakdown of everything we know about Destiny 2's first Raid, called the Leviathan Raid.
Destiny 2 Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike Guide
As soon as you start out the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike, the clock is against you, as you've probably come to expect by now after seeing the Timewarp mod. The timer for this Nightfall Strike begins at 14 minutes, and the only way you can extend this timer is by shooting the many anomalies you can find around the environment.
The anomalies themselves are basically darker blue versions of the collectible materials you can find around any of the four planets, so when you spot one, shoot it until it vanishes, and you'll have bought your Fireteam an extra 30 seconds to complete the Nightfall Strike. It's paramount that you find all the anomalies scattered around each individual area, and basically make it through the parts where you have to defend Ghost as quickly as possible, as there actually aren't any anomalies in the area when you're defending your machine partner.
It should be noted that there are significantly more anomalies in indoor areas than there are outdoor areas. In the section where you're fighting the Fallen Walker, for example, there are zero anomalies worth grabbing, as you should try and take down the mini boss as quickly as possible, before heading to the indoor, darker area and looking all around you for anomalies. You'll want to take a good minute in this area to seek out all the anomalies, of which there are at least six, before you head through into the final area with the boss of the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike.
Elsewhere in the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike, the Prism damage mod makes yet another return. This mod has actually been in every weekly Nightfall Strike in Destiny 2 at the time of writing, so it's probably a fairly safe bet to see it return in the future for every new Nightfall Strike that Bungie puts out.
In case you aren't familiar with the Prism mod, it basically works as a damage buff for certain elemental weapon types. Whenever you see a notification on the left of your screen that you're 'surrounded by Solar energy', or 'Solar polarization' is taking place, this means that Solar damage from your weapons is being amplified, so you'll need to switch to a Solar weapon. All other weapon types during the period where they aren't active will be penalized in damage, so you'll need to make sure that all three of your Fireteam members have a variety of elemental damage in their weapons.
As for the brand new Attrition mod, you'll occasionally see enemies drop small orbs of what look like Light, except this is used to heal you, instead of refill your Super Ability meter. You'll want to keep a keen eye out for these, as they can heal your character instantly in any tricky situation.
With Thaviks, the Depraved boss, we estimate you'll need at least 5 minutes to take down this boss at the end of the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike, since he can disappear for at least 20 seconds at a time, sending in a horde of followers so he can hang back. It's a difficult final fight for sure, but if you've shot enough anomalies throughout the Nightfall Strike, and if you stick together in this boss fight, then it shouldn't be too tough.
Your fight with the Exodus Crash Nightfall Strike might be done here, but there are still many other Strikes to take on. Head over to our Destiny 2 Strikes guide hub if you want help on how to tackle all of them. We've also got guides on how to get the Rat King in Destiny 2 and how to complete the Destiny 2 Leviathan Raid.
