Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares Loot Table — All Encounters

Destiny 2 Root of Nightmares Loot Table showing rewards for all four encounters.

Destiny 2’s Lightfall expansion has finally been released and there’s a ton of new content for players to sink their teeth into. Along with a new story, exotics, loot, endgame content, and a build crafting system, Lightfall also introduces our second Darkness subclass, Strand. Of course, one of the biggest draws is the new raid, Root of Nightmares. Taking place on the Witness’ pyramid ship, players will battle their way through hordes of Cabal enemies and battle against a rather terrifying foe.

Like all raids before it in Destiny 2, the Root of Nightmares has some sick exclusive loot for you to grab. There are a number of weapons available including a special Exotic, as well as some pretty cool-looking armor. If you’re curious which pieces of gear you can grab from which encounter, here’s a full loot table explaining the drops.
