Destiny Daily 12/2/14: Enter The Nexus For This Week’s Nightfall, Daily Bounties

Destiny Daily

It’s Tuesday, and that means the world of Destiny has been reset. You can now once again earn Marks, get loot from the raid, and loot for running the Weekly Heroic and Nightfall strike. Speaking of, for those strikes you’ll be heading to Venus to take down the Vex mind in the Nexus. It’s an easy strike though, but check out the guide below.

Apologies for the big the delay in getting this posted; was out taking care of some things. Going to make this one quick, so here are the bounties for 12/2:

Nightfall Rewards:

  • Unknown Rewards

Bring your solar weapons, Ice Breaker is a godsend here, and remember you can skip most of the fights on the way to the boss. You really only have to complete the kill the three servitors section and then you can run past everything else to get to the end boss. Just be quick, and remember that if you stay up top there’s going to be a minotaur that will spawn every 30 seconds or so.

Here’s a video from YouTube showing how to cheese it:

That’s all for today Guardians. If you’re able, get the Nightfall done ASAP. I’m going to have to miss out this week (due to a lack of PS+ at the moment), but if you get anything good for reward, let us know about it in the comments below.
