The Destiny 2 weekly reset has just gone into effect, which means that there is a brand-new Nightfall rotation for players to grind out.

For those wondering what weapons are up for grabs at the moment in exchange for completing the challenges, here's a breakdown of the Nightfall rotation in Destiny 2 for the week of Dec. 7, 2021.

What is the Destiny 2 Nightfall Weapon This Week?

From Dec. 7 to Dec. 14, the Nightfall weapons in Destiny 2 are the Void hand cannon "The Palindrome" and the Arc machine gun "THE SWARM."

As part of Season of the Lost, Bungie are bringing back classic weapons from Destiny and established Nightfall weapons to make up the eight weapons currently in the Nightfall rotation loot pool:

  • The Palindrome
  • THE SWARM
  • The Comedian
  • The Hothead
  • Shadow Price
  • Hung Jury SR4
  • PLUG ONE.1
  • Uzume RR4

These weapons, of course, are dropped for those playing the Nightfall: The Ordeal playlist. This week, The Corrupted has been selected as the Strike, which when completed on harder difficulties, grants players a better chance of receiving the Nightfall weapons.

For those looking to get the Adept variants of The Palindrome or THE SWARM, they must complete this week's Nightfall Strike on Grandmaster difficulty. When Masterworked, the Adept variants get +3 to all stats (except impact) in addition to the +10 to the masterwork stat, and are the only weapons eligible to be equipped with Adept mods.
