Just looking for an easy way to get a 200k minimum score in the Hollowed Lair Nightfall. I have read the drop chance of NF exclusive loot is dependent on the highest score achieved in that NF. Unfortunately, I haven't played much NF to know what Five of Cards modifiers to use, as well as what gear to bring to make the fight a lot less tough, especially if I am trying to solo.

  • I don't think drops are linked to score. I got my Braytech Osprey by speed running the strike in a team with Arc Singe, Heavyweight and Wardcliff Coil. Took us a few runs, but we got it in the end. – David Yell Feb 18 '20 at 14:50
  • Getting 200k, I'd think you'd want a level handicap, match game, extinguish etc. Something to get a 3x or more bonus. Probably take Hard Light or Borealis to adapt to different shield elements. Seems doable though youtube.com/watch?v=8VU__9ZCHD8 – David Yell Feb 18 '20 at 14:52
  • @DavidYell No, it's been confirmed that there are 3 tiers of drop rates -- no score, 100k, and 200k. Each tier will increase the chance of you getting that Nightfall's specific loot. This is why people want 200k, so they can farm Mindbender's Ambition. – childe Feb 18 '20 at 19:20
  • Must have got mine before the changes I guess! – David Yell Feb 19 '20 at 0:09
  • @DavidYell I'm not saying you won't drop Mindbender's at a lower tier, but your drop chance per run is increased. I was getting about 1 mindbenders in 5 runs without a high score tier, which dropped it to 1 in 4 after hitting 100k. Just struggling to hit 200k without getting instantly obliterated by a trash mob. – childe Feb 19 '20 at 0:50
