Alongside the loot players receive from completing the encounter, they can receive a bonus chest each week due to the weekly raid challenge. A raid challenge offers players a bonus objective that will net bonus loot if players complete it and the encounter.

The weekly challenge for the second encounter Scission is Crossfire and can offer players bonus loot from Scision’s loot pool, including an adept weapon on Master difficulty.

Destiny 2: How to complete the Crossfire challenge in Root of Nightmares?

Crossfire requires players to not shoot their own launcher crystals to move across the chasm. Players are also not allowed to sword skate across the chasm either, as this will also result in the challenge failing.

This also includes launchers that send Guardians up to the next level, meaning that each time a level is completed, someone from the other side will need to activate the crystal as well.

As such, players will need to coordinate their fireteam so that another guardian can assist in activating the crystal. Players can do this in two different ways. Either players can look to designate one member of the fireteam that will always activate the crystals when necessary, or have the runners shoot each other’s crystals from the opposite side.
