The Destiny 2 Nightfall weapon changes on a week-by-week basis, giving you the chance to delve into enemy-infested lairs across the system and grab yourself a special gun. The only way to get a Nightfall weapon is by completing the activity, and even then, there’s only a limited chance. You can also get adept versions of each weapon, though these are solely a guaranteed reward for the much-harder Grandmaster Nightfalls. 

A couple of Nightfall weapons were retired last season, including the Plug One fusion rifle and Hothead rocket launcher. If you don’t want to miss out on any weapons that might disappear by season’s end, it’s always a good idea to keep a weather eye on what’s coming up next. Here I’ll explain what Nightfall weapon is up for grabs this week, its best roll, and what you’ll need to bring to beat the activity on higher difficulties.

What is the Nightfall weapon this week?

The Nightfall weapon from September 20 – 27 is Horror’s Least, a legendary Arc pulse rifle. Its stats are pretty balanced but it has a super high aim assist making it a real powerhouse in PvP matches. It has the rapid-fire frame intrinsic perk which gives it deeper ammo reserves and a slightly faster reload speed when the magazine is empty. 

The best rolls for this pulse rifle include Accurized Rounds, Perpetual Motion, Kill Clip and Arrowhead Brake, so make sure to keep those. It’s an all-rounder that players seem to really be enjoying, and it won’t be long until you can grab an adept version of Nightfall weapons like Horror’s Least.

With each new season, some Nightfall weapons are retired to make way for new ones, meaning it’s often your last chance to grab them for quite a while. The current Nightfall weapons in the seasonal rotation are:

Once Grandmaster Nightfalls begin on October 4, you’ll be able to get adept versions of these weapons, which allow you to equip adept mods for increased stats and damage against certain enemy types.
