  3. Can you get the nightfall exclusive loot without reaching a 50/100/200k score?

I just 2 manned Warden of Nothing and got 2 Wardens Law out the box at one time.

One of them was Currated and both has Rampage.
Warning: I have a different views about stuff so try not to get worked up. OK?

Yeah they can still drop. Higher scores help increase the odds of Nightfall specific loot to drop but otherwise are not required for a drop to happen


I actually seriously doubt it.

All of my nightfall specific drops have come from speed runs, with a score less than 10k.

I haven't had any better luck farming nightfall specific rewards going for the high score, vs just a speed run to get though it faster.

I wouldn't mind bungie fixing this though. Maybe have the curated roles be a guaranteed drop for 100k+ run, while random rolls with a random drop chance for lower score.
Triggered fanboys,make the internet go round. In the most disgusting way

I'm with mike468 on this, I've never gotten a drop on any high score run. And only a few times has someone in my fireteam gotten one. Most of our drops come from speed runs.

Lots of data has been gathered on reddit, but getting 200k, swapping to the emblem and 200k variant, then speed running with any score for the week, is the fastest method.

Well i only said what i said because thats what Bungie has said regarding the matter, but as has been said, it doesnt seem to matter all that much. If it does increase the drop chance, it cant be by very much

Every high score run I've done, the NF specific drop was always curated

Could just be RNG, my Braytech Osprey obviously cant roll random rolls but it did drop Masterworked for Velocity. Maybe it would've dropped without a Masterwork on it if it had been less than 100k or something

The drops are based on your overall score. Once you achieve a high score you can go back to doing speed runs. You don’t need to constantly do high scores for it to drop. I don’t have the numbers of how much of a chance a high score improves the overall drops... but bungie has confirmed it does help.

Ah that would explain it then. So it helps to get a high score run and then do speed runs if you dont get a drop the first time

Thanks for the confirm mate. That is what we had done. High score then just speed runs with it equipped. I just kept it equipped for the extra tokens.
