The new season of Grandmaster Nightfall means another rotation of strikes. One of the new strikes released to the Grandmaster rotation is the Scarlet Keep, the gigantic Hive fortress on the Moon. The arrival of this week’s Scarlet Keep has challenged players to quickly clear the strike at Grandmaster difficulty.
Scarlet Keep Grandmaster Nightfall Guide in Destiny 2
Players new to this strike might find themselves on a rather difficult spot. Many have failed due to using the wrong combination of weapons, subclass, and armors. But with the right set, completing the tower at Grandmaster Nightfall will be easy.
The Arbalest is the best-recommended weapon you can use in Scarlet Keep. Since there are more Barriers than Unstoppables, having consistent anti-barrier damage is key in this keep. Arbalest can also one-shot elemental shields and deal fairly decent damage. Other weapons are Trinity Ghoul, Point of the Stag, Tyranny of Heaven, Linear Fusion Rifle, and Blinding Grenade Launcher.
Aside from the boss room, the elevator phase of the keep is especially difficult. Having a Warlock who can apply Divine Protection or a Hunter that can apply invisibility on the team to protect them from incoming spam damage is important.
These are the recommended subclass for the Keep:
- A Bannershield Titan with Ursa is highly recommended for the elevator phase in the Keep where enemies will be attacking in every side.
- Omsiomancy Shadebinder Warlock
- Omnioculus/6th Coyote Camo Hunter, Revenant Hunter (with Aeon or Renewal Grasps)
- Phoenix Well Radiant Warlock
- Saint 14 Bubble Titan.
Armor Mod Recommendations
For Armor Mods, the following are recommended:
- Thermoshock Plating
- Concussive Dampener
- Protective Light
- Shield Break Charge
- Taking Charge
- Shieldcrash Wellmaker
- Elemental Charge
