Destiny 2: Season of the Lost Exodus Crash Grandmaster Nightfall Ordeal – Boss Tips, Best Builds


Exodus Crash has to be one of the toughest Grandmaster Ordeal Nightfalls to complete in Destiny 2: Season of the Lost. It has an invisible boss who can one-shot you, champions who can immune other enemies in the boss room, an incredibly difficult passage through patrol zones full of enemies at 1360 PL, and an electrical field in the boss which restricts movement. With that said, nightfall is not impossible and in this Destiny 2 Exodus Crash Grandmaster Nightfall Ordeal Guide, we will walk you through everything you need to know about completing it easily in Season of the Lost.

Destiny 2: Season of the Lost Exodus Crash Grandmaster

Before starting, do note that you will need to a pre-made fireteam of three people at a Power Level of 1345 to start it. However, due to the “Contest Mode” being active, being higher than 1345 does not provide you with an incentive.

First, let us talk about things that you will run into while attempting Exodus Crash at Grandmaster difficulty:

Champions Barrier and Overload
Elemental Shields Solar
Boss Melt Impossible

You will need to deal with a lot of Overload Champions which is why all three players should run Overload Rounds to keep them stunned and prevent them from healing. You should also take the elemental shields on enemies into account and prepare yourself accordingly. As for the fireteam composition, you can try to run the following:

  • 1x Sentinel Shield with Ursa Furiosa, 1x Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol, and 1x Shadebinder with Bleakwatcher and Eye of Another World
  • 1x Ward of Dawn with Helm of Saint-14, 1x Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol, and 1x Shadebinder with Bleakwatcher and Eye of Another World
  • 1x Well of Riddance with Phoenix Protocol, 1x Shadebinder with Bleakwatcher and Eye of Another World, 1x Invis. Hunter with Omnioculus

Coming to weapons and mods, there are a few things which work better than the others:

Kinetic Weapons Accrued Redemption, Succssion, Chroma Rush
Energy Weapons Plug-1, Null Composure, Le Monarque, Cartesian Coordinate, Wolftone Draw, Arsenic Bite-4b, Eriana’s Vow
Power Weapons 1K Voices, Threaded Needle, Sleeper Simulant
Weapon Mods Boss Spec, Major Spec
Armor Mods Concussive Dampener, Sniper Resist, Arc Resist, Particle Deconstruction, Focusing Lens

Tips and Strategies

The most important thing that you need to keep in mind is to take your time when passing through the patrol zones. Enemies in the patrol zone are brutal and will 2-shot you in almost all the cases. If you can manage, ask another friend of yours to join your instance at the Exodus Crash landing zone and clear everything for you. It’s a big help!

When you get to the zone where your Ghost is scanning, take your time. Try to clear adds from as far away as you can – try to stand in the alley behind the scanning area. After the enemies are killed, let the Overload Champions push you in the alley and kill them there. After the area is cleared, move to the next area.

Clear all adds in the boss room before jumping down. Once you are down, go to the left side of the boss area and let the boss push you. Place a Well of Riddance down, apply Particle Deconstruction, Tether, place a Bleakwatcher down, and shoot with 1K Voices.

Try to deal with the electric-shanks as soon as possible since they can one-shot even in a Well of Riddance.

After the second wave of adds, damage the boss again using the same strategy as before. After the second damage phase, some Barrier Champions will spawn in the area. This is where you Eriana’s Vow will come in handy. With the Shaderbinder’s Super and Bleakwatcher, nothing should get too close.

Simply keep at it and you should defeat the boss in no time.
