How to get the Collective Obligation exotic raid weapon in Destiny 2

The Vow of the Disciple hides an exotic Pulse Rifle for players to earn in Destiny 2. Here's how to get it.
How to get the Collective Obligation exotic raid weapon in Destiny 2

Despite connection issues hampering many players' experiences, the Vow of the Disciple raid race was an incredible milestone for Destiny 2, capping off an overwhelmingly positive reception for The Witch Queen expansion.

Filled with multiple nuanced encounters culminating in perhaps the most intense and slick-looking final boss Destiny 2 raids have ever seen, Clan Elysium managed to earn back-to-back belts by beating Datto's squad in a neck and neck finale. 

The fun isn't only exclusive to those that played the raid, as finishing it unlocked plenty of stuff for those outside the six-man activity. Having said that, if you take your time with Vow of the Disciple, you might be rewarded with some incredible gear.

One of those pieces of loot is the newest exotic weapon to enter the game, the Collective Obligation Pulse Rifle.

How to earn the Collective Obligation Pulse Rifle

The Collective Obligation Pulse Rifle appears to be a random drop from within the raid, similar to how the Eyes of Tomorrow rocket launcher for Deep Stone Crypt or Vex Mythoclast for Vault of Glass were random drops.

At the moment of writing, we have no exact information regarding where this Pulse Rifle drops within the raid. Still, an educated guess is that it will only drop from the final chest after defeating Rhulk, the last boss in the Vow of the Disciple raid.

Once we find out more about where it drops explicitly, we'll update the article accordingly.

Collective Obligation exotic perk

The exotic has amazing synergy with the recently revamped Void 3.0. Check out its intrinsic trait down below:

  • Void Leech: This weapon leeches Void debuffs when damaging targets that are suppressed, weakened, or volatile. Once charged, X Long Press to swap firing modes. In this mode, damage from this weapon applies the same Void debuffs that were leeched.

In essence, the Collective Obligation can store all three debuffs that you acquire and unleash them simultaneously without utilising your abilities to trigger them.

With Season of the Risen lasting until May, players will have a lot of time to play around with this void exotic before a new Light subclass revamp happens with Season 17.
