Release Date and Time for Grandmaster Nightfall in Destiny 2 Season 21
Destiny 2 Season of the Deep has recently launched, and players are eagerly awaiting the first Grandmaster Nightfall in the fourth week. The release date for Season 21 Grandmaster is set for June 13, 2023. The launch time will coincide with the regular weekly reset, at 10:00 am PST. It’s important to note that gilding of the Conqueror seal will only be available from week 7 onwards. So, for now, running the difficulty will count towards Adept weapon drops and the standard Conqueror seal.

Guide for The Devil’s Lair Grandmaster Nightfall
The final Grandmaster Nightfall in Destiny 2 Season of the Deep is The Devil’s Lair, a Fallen-based mission. It introduces Overload and Barrier Champions, along with unique modifiers to increase the challenge.
While still challenging, The Devil’s Lair is considered one of the easier Strikes compared to Lightblade and PsiOps Battlegrounds.
Rewards for The Devil’s Lair Grandmaster Nightfall
Starting from the August 15 reset, The Devil’s Lair Nightfall will drop the returning Kinetic Sidearm, Buzzard. Completing Grandmaster versions of the Nightfall will reward players with an Adept version.
Available perks in the last two columns include:
- Perpetual Motion, Overflow, Compulsive Reloader, Encore, Fourth Time’s the Charm, and Pulse Monitor.
- Frenzy, Vorpal Weapon, Kinetic Tremors, Rangefinder, Multi Kill Clip, and Swashbuckler.
Power Requirement for Destiny 2 Season 21 Grandmaster Nightfall
Despite the higher power level, all players will be capped at 25 power below any Grandmaster Nightfall Strike. The requirement for Season 21 is 1840, meaning players will be capped at 1815. Falling below this requirement will result in significantly increased incoming damage.
However, reaching the pinnacle cap and having a five-power bonus on the seasonal artifact should be sufficient to take on this season’s Grandmaster Strikes.
