Best loadouts and armor mods for the Proving Grounds Grandmaster Nightfall in Destiny 2

Players can always go for the popular choice in Stasis Warlocks when it comes to combating Grandmaster Nightfalls. However, YouTuber KackisHD tried a slightly different Subclass after using Stasis Warlock with his fireteam. Instead, he chose a better option for the Proving Grounds by using a Well of Radiance Warlock Subclass.

When it comes to the Exotics, players can pair the Well of Radiance Subclass with the Stag Helmet. This Exotic provides a massive damage resistance to players in Destiny 2 when they have their Rift or Well out, thanks to its intrinsic perk in Dearly Departed. They can also increase their chances of survival by using Charged With Light mods for PvE like Protective and Radiant Light.

  • Exotic: The Stag Helmet
  • Gauntlet Mod: Striking Light
  • Chest Armor Mod: Taking Charge
  • Leg Armor Mod: Protective Light
  • Warlock Bond Mod: Radiant Light

Finally, players have a load of options from the armory of the popular Bungie title as well to combat the many Champions. In the Kinetic slot, Guardians can use any great Pulse Rifle like the God Roll Sacred Provenance. For the Exotic, they can choose a famous Hand Cannon in Eriana’s Vow because of its shield piercing ammunition, which works well against Unstoppable and Barrier Champions. Finally, they can also select any Linear Fusion Rifle for the Heavy Slot to deal damage to bosses and Champions.
