A Strike is a cooperative activity available in Destiny. A Strike is a structured, progressive, cooperative adventure "ideal for pick-up groups or friends looking for a quick battle together." Strikes are replayable, designed for three-person Fireteams, and usually take 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
Strikes always begin in a public area, so the Fireteam can begin participating in public events, encounter other Fireteams, or explore. When the Fireteam enters the "Strike proper," it becomes private, and the Fireteam will no longer encounter other players. At that point, players go through a structured, crafted mission that culminates in one or more boss battles.
List of StrikesEdit
Vanguard Strikes, also known as Strike Playlists, allow players to play random Strikes with increased difficulty to earn Vanguard Marks, Vanguard Reputation, and Vanguard gear. They are unlocked at level 16. There are five playlists:
|Eagle||Viper||Wolf||Tiger||Roc (The Dark Below)|
A Weekly Strike is a strike that is played at a high level and with mission modifiers for rare rewards. Weekly Strikes do not support matchmaking and are changed every week.
The Weekly Heroic Strike is a level 24 strike with the Heroic mission modifier and at least one other modifier. Weekly Heroic Strikes are unlocked once a Guardian reaches level 20.
Guardians can select higher difficulties with better rewards. Each of the 3 difficulties can award 3 Strange Coins for a maximum of 9, among other rewards. Completing the Strike once on the highest difficulty will reward the same amount of Strange Coins as when every difficulty is completed in ascending order. To save time, Guardians should simply complete the highest difficulty they can.
The Weekly Nightfall Strike is the same as the Weekly Heroic Strike, but upped to level 30 and with many mission modifiers including Epic and Nightfall. Possible rewards for completing this Strike include Legendary or Exotic equipment, Strange Coins or 6-12 Ascendant Material. Weekly Nightfall Strikes are unlocked once a Guardian reaches level 28. Completing the Nightfall Strike rewards your Guardian with a buff called "Radiant Light," represented by a blue, flaming animation around their head, that increases most XP and reputation gains by 25% until the weekly refresh. The Iron Banner event does not receive the boost to reputation but does receive it to the experience gained.
