Destiny 2 update 1.1.3 is out now, with Nightfall Strike scoring and challenge cards

Destiny 2 Cayde-6

The latest Destiny 2 update is out, called The one about Nightfall Strike Scoring, so you can probably guess what the focus of this update is. Nightfall is now scored, so you can add a little extra competition between friends as you play. There's also new Prestige Nightfall challenge cards for those that own the DLC to add a new kind of challenge.

If you want a new weapon and haven't found the right one for you yet, here's a guide to the best legendary weapons in Destiny 2
