From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
Nightmare Hunts are activities accessible on the Moon, introduced in the Shadowkeep expansion. Hunts are instructed by Eris Morn to Guardians to defeat the Nightmares of the Guardians' most formidable foes to weaken the Pyramid as much as possible.
There are a total of 8 Nightmare Hunts, each with their own boss assuming the form of the most potent enemies to Humanity. Each hunt takes the Guardians to different areas throughout Luna, battling Nightmare and Hive forces along the way.
