– This mode would have a normal mode and a hard mode.
– Hard mode would give all enemies more health or more damage, changes High-Value targetmechanics (see "What makes it unique") and would offer different rewards.
– Normal mode would be six-man match-made, while hard mode would not be.
– This mode would have endless waves, when the last person on your team dies everybody gets instantly revived, the enemies disappear, and a rewards chest spawns in the center of the room.
– The activity starts with enemies at 1050 power, and every 10 waves, there is a boss. Killing the boss raises the enemies' power level.
– Each team member has 5 revives to begin.
What makes it unique
– It's a little bit like Gambit in the sense that in any given round you can be fighting Fallen, Taken, Vex, Hive, or Scorn.
– Every round, there is a 5% of a yellow-bar enemy with a Wrathful buff spawning, and when you kill it you gain the Wrathful buff for briefly increased damage against all enemies.
– Spawn locations for groups of enemies would be randomly chosen among a large number of possible spawn points.
– Every five rounds a High-Value target would spawn in a certain area of the map, and this enemy would drop a mote.
– In Hard Mode, these enemies would spawn every four rounds instead, and they would bechampions.
– These motes could be banked at terminals around the room for different assets in the fight.
– 2 motes: Extra revive for whoever banks
– 8 motes: Extra revive for everyone
– 2 motes: Braytech security frame
– 2 motes: Three Fallen Pikes
– 5 motes: Mounted Turret (can be placed anywhere, only three can be purchased)
– 3 motes: Placeable wall (only three of these can be purchased)
– 10 motes: Drake Tank

* These bosses would be the reskinned strike bosses Thaviks, Sedia, Kargen, and The Fanatic, but they would have far more health and no immune/orb shield/disappearing mechanics.
After clearing Level 100, the boss order will simply reset, and with each consecutive set of 10 waves and a boss the power level will increase by 5. So, level 200 would be power level 1350.
Clear level 50 once a week: 2 Enhancement Prisms
Complete 3 runs per week: Pinnacle Gear
Clear level 100 once a week: Ascendant Shard
Clear level 100: Triggers an exotic quest
|Level 30||Level 80|
|Fallen||5 Glacial Stalwort||25 Glacial Stalwort|
|Hive||5 Helium Filaments||25 Helium Filaments|
|Vex||5 Microphastic Datalattice||25 Microphastic Datalattice|
|Taken||5 Bayron Bough||25 Bayron Bough|
|Cabal||5 Dusklight Shard||25 Dusklight Shard|
|Scorn||5 Etheric Spiral||25 Etheric Spiral|
Exotic Catalysts (These catalysts don't have to give already overpowered exotics an extra crazy perk, just the ability to make orbs and a minor stat buff.)
|12% chance, Level 90||15% chance, Level 90 (Hard Mode)|
|Fallen||Queenbreaker Catalyst||Anarchy Catalyst|
|Hive||Deathbringer Catalyst||Thorn Catalyst|
|Vex||Bastion Catalyst||Divinity Catalyst|
|Taken||Malfeasance Catalyst||One Thousand Voices Catalyst|
|Cabal||Heir Apparent Catalyst||Tarrabah Catalyst|
|Scorn||Wavesplitter Catalyst||Monte Carlo Catalyst|
The chest at the end of the encounter would include a slotting mechanic like the Cryptolith Lure, and the more rounds you have completed, the more specific weapon options, stat masterwork options, and perk inclusions/exclusions you have.
Why this should be implemented:
– It would reward players for getting to high light levels more than just grandmaster NFs, Trials, or master lost sectors do.
– High replayability value, due to the randomization of the right factors in gameplay, and the RNG not being terrible.
– Six-person matchmade activities were the community's favorite seasonal activities.
– If there's enough good loot, people will want to farm specific rolls of these guns, and they'll play this activity for a longer amount of time instead of die on purpose after a certain point if clearing more levels meant more options for loot customizations.
– A lot of exotics don't have catalysts yet (even if the catalyst is just an orb-maker), and tying these catalysts to a fun seasonal activity where the RNG isn't terrible will just further people's motivation to play this.
– Imagine the hype that would be generated for the game when streamers start challenging each other to see who can get farther, and trying to break each others' records.
– Above all, it would be FUN. You could be the all-powerful alien slayer mowing down endless hordes of enemies you always wanted to be.
- Just a friendly reminder to those wanting to complete their Worldline Zero catalyst, it requires Mars AND 5 weeks IF you do them in a row.
- Many catalysts should have received a revamped method of acquisition with Beyond Light, not be removed from the game indefinitely
