Cross Fire is the second challenge in the Root of Nightmares that is done during the Scission encounter. You need to complete it to get the Dream Warrior title. Aside from this, you can also get an Adept Weapon for completing it on Master. This guide will teach you everything you need to know about completing the Cross Fire raid challenge in the Root of Nightmares.
Destiny 2: Root of Nightmares Cross Fire
Before we begin, do note that this guide assumes that you understand how the encounter works. If you do not, we recommend checking out our Scission Encounter guide.
It is one of the simplest raid challenges that we have seen in a long time. The challenge basically states that you cannot activate the launcher on your side. This means that you must have someone from the opposite side to activate your launcher and you must do the same for the other team. There are a couple of methods you can use to do this:
You can have 2 dedicated players — one on each side to shoot the crux on the opposite side to activate the launchers — but this can mess up the comms since there will be too many callouts. A better method is to have the runners activate the opposite launchers whenever they need to cross to the other side. This will keep the comms clean and leave 4 players to clear enemies.
Another thing to keep in in mind is that you must also do this when going up the upper floors — make sure the opposite team shoots your launcher. Keep on doing this until you are done. Lastly, do note that you cannot use things such as Eager Edge, Heat Rises, Grapple, T-crash, Lion Rampants, etc. to cross the gap. Doing so will instantly fail the challenge. Bungie has designed the challenge in such a way that you are forced to use the jumping pads.
Master Mode Tips
Since the only difference the Master raid has is an additional Unstoppable Champion, there is not a whole lot that you will need to change. As long as the 2 runners are shooting the crux on the opposite side, the 4 players should be more than enough to deal with everything.
