Best loadouts and armor mods for The Corrupted Grandmaster Nightfall in Destiny 2

In The Corrupted, Destiny 2 Guardians will have to battle both Unstoppable and Overload Champions. Plus, they will have to face all the shields, so Fireteams will require Arc, Solar and Void. Here is a loadout that will work wonders in The Corrupted Grandmaster Nightfall.

  • Subclass: Shadebinder Warlock
  • Aspects: Glacial Harvest, and Bleak Watcher
  • Fragments: Whisper of Conduction, Whisper of Torment, Whisper of Chains and Whisper of Rime

Best Weapons to use for The Corrupted Grandmaster Nightfall

With all the changes from Bungie in Season of the Lost, players have a dearth of options for weapons to use for The Corrupted. For the Kinetic Weapon, players can use a Combat Bow like Biting Winds with Explosive perks. They can even try out Double Linear Fusion Rifles, which includes the Lorentz Driver and Threaded Needle. However, they might have a hard time with Ammo economy with the amount of Void Shields they will have to tackle.

Instead they can use another Exotic Combat Bow in the Le Monarque, which is one of the best in the game right now and it helps stun Overload Champions. For the Kinetic Weapon slot, the Succession Sniper Rifle is the prime choice. This weapon helps in some of the long range battles, especially with the Shriekers. Finally, for the Heavy slot, Guardians can use the Threaded Needle Linear Fusion Rifle. Additionally, players might want to add in the Taken Spec mod as most of the enemies are Taken in The Corrupted.
