My friend (level 25 and did nothing the whole game) and I (level 26) managed to beat the nightfall strike today on the Nexus Venus mission. Took us three tries and over 2 hours to beat it but I finally managed to do it with my Icebreaker. I also ended up getting the Mask of the Third Man exotic helmet as a reward while my friend got a legendary fusion rifle (Even though he already has one, kinda glad he got it since I did all the work). I would advise not doing the nightfall as a level 26 since nothing except my launcher or sniper did anything.
Sorry for making such a lame thread but I’m pretty happy that I was able to beat it practically by myself
