Grandmaster Nightfalls are one of the endgame activities in Destiny 2, apart from raids and dungeons. These nightfalls are the most difficult activities in the game right now, but the greater the difficulty the greater the reward.
By completing the GM nightfalls, players will get to unlock the adept versions of the normal Nightfall weapons that include two perks per slot. Season of Plunder Grandmaster Nightfalls goes live on Tuesday, October 4, 2022, at 10 AM Pacific.
This season, players have a total of six adept weapons to chase in the game. In this guide, we’ll talk about the Grandmaster Nightfall weekly rotations and which adept weapon you can expect each week until the end of the season.

Huge shoutout to Destiny Overview for making a very clean infographic for the Season of Plunder Grandmaster nightfalls rotation. We’ll update this guide if the current GM nightfall schedule changes when the playlist goes live in the game.
Season of Plunder Grandmaster Power Level Requirement
In Season of Plunder, players must be at least 1595 Power Level in Destiny 2 if they wish to enter the Grandmaster Nightfalls, as this is the base required power level this season.
As for the GMs, the activity power level is fixed at 1620. Keep in mind that the 1595 PL for your Guardian is fixed, meaning you will not get an advantage even if you’re above 1595, similar to the contest mode raids.
