SINGES MATCH THE DAILY SOLSTICE ELEMENT

THE DARK PRIESTESS
Vanguard Strikes are replayable PVE activities designed to be tackled by a fireteam of one to three players, and they feature a series of objectives that culminate in a battle against an Ultra enemy or boss. Individual Strikes, Vanguard Strikes Playlist, and Adept/Hero Nightfalls are also matchmaking enabled, meaning you can team up with Guardians even if you’re playing solo!
Coming in Season 15, completing Vanguard Strikes, Nightfalls and Battlegrounds will provide reputation gains that will unlock rewards when you rank up certain levels. Expect to receive upgrade materials, shaders, emblems and exotic rewards.
For those looking to take on a challenge, Nightfalls give different bonuses based on completion medals, which can be earned through high scores and defeating all Champions. Bronze, silver, gold, and platinum medals grant reputation bonuses, and Nightfalls grant reputation multipliers depending on the difficulty of Nightfall selected. The more difficult the Nightfall, the higher the multiplier will be!
Submit all remaining Vanguard Tokens before the end of Season 14 as they will be removed when Season 15 begins!
Season 15 will introduce activity streaks. The longer you stay in Vanguard activities (playlists or direct launch), the larger your streak bonus is. Guardians can leave the matchmaking queue to snag bounties from the Tower or clean out their Postmaster in the H.E.L.M. without the worry of losing their activity streaks. As a note, quitting activities or going AFK for extended periods of time will invalidate your streak, so be ready to play if you’re looking to keep yours going.
As with Crucible and Gambit, Zavala will be looking to host weeklong reputation bonuses throughout a given Season. Stay tuned for in-game announcements.
