As promised in our previous Destiny 2: The Vow of the Disciple Raid Guide article, now we will tell you about all the weapons you can get in the Vow of the Disciple Raid. We’ll describe in detail at what stages of the raid and how you can get the cherished gear, which perks you can roll, and which of them are worth the most attention in our opinion. Also, you can learn some more about crafting weapons, about Collective Obligation Exotic pulse rifle and Adept version of weapons on the Master difficulty.
Vow of the Disciple Loot Table
First of all, here’s a table of all the loot you can get in the raid, indicating the encounter it belongs to.
As you can see from the table, there are several chances to get this or that weapon at different stages.
All of the legendary weapons from this raid are craftable, meaning that once you get and complete five Deepsight Resonance versions of the weapon you want, you can craft and level up the one you already have. You can get Deepsight Resonance versions of weapons as a reward for an encounter, from a secret chest, the location of which we described in detail in Destiny 2: The Vow of the Disciple Raid Guide article, or as the first weapon purchased in a week (this is crucial) from the boss raid chest for 20 Spoils of Conquest.
The specific thing about craftable weapons is that certain perks appear as you level up the weapon, so all such perks will be listed with the level number that is required for it.
So, here are the weapons you can get from the Vow of the Disciple Raid.
Submission Legendary Lightweight Frame Submachine Gun
This Legendary 900 RPM Lightweight Frame Submachine Gun uses primary ammo and deals Kinetic damage.
Let’s start right off with the nice stuff – this SMG is good in both PvE and PvP. It is compared to Iron Banner’s Multimach SMG and Shayura’s Wrath, but the Submission is the clear winner in terms of performance – the recoil is 100, the high zoom, and of course the excellent perk roll combinations.
|The Submission is practically the only SMG where you can roll Overflow and even more so the combination of this perk with the damage perk. For instance, the combination of Overflow and Frenzy will give you a 74-round magazine and a decent damage buff. Subsistence and Frenzy combo is also a good alternative.||At first glance the advantage of Submission over Multimach SMG and Shayura’s Wrath in PvP is not obvious, it’s all about the right perk roll. The perk Encore maximum level on the craftable variant of this SMG is the secret to success. His range buff accumulated after precise kills exceed what Iron Reach gives. If even this is not enough for you, use Encore together with Killing Wind – get more than 90 units of range from one kill and 100 units from two final blows.|
|Roll: Hammer-Forged Rifling, Flared Magwell, Overflow/Subsistence, Frenzy.||Roll: Hammer-Forged Rifling, Accurized Rounds, Encore, Killing Wind.|
Deliverance Legendary Precision Frame Fusion Rifle
This Legendary 740 charge time Precision Frame Fusion Rifle uses special ammo and is the first unique rifle to deal Stasis damage.
Rejoice Energy Primaris fans – Deliverance is the first Kinetic Fusion Rifle in Destiny 2 that doesn’t take up an Exotic slot. Stasis fans will be happy to get rolled the Chill Clip perk, and everyone else – that it gives out the highest DPS of any Special Fusion.
|Demolitionist in the first column – the holy grail for this weapon. For the second column, Chill Clip is a good choice because of the synergy of Stasis Aspects and Fragments – two turns freeze the target, and a second hit shatters it. Revenants with the Grim Harvest aspect will be delighted.
If Stasis isn’t to your liking, the combination of Cornered and Surrounded will pleasantly surprise you with extremely high DPS. The leveled-up Surrounded perk will increase the damage up to 47% when surrounded.
|Deliverance is a more than accurate weapon with the right perks, so if you choose Perpetual Motion and Tap the Trigger, this Fusion Rifle is a match for SMG’s distance range. In any case, it’s worth having in your arsenal a good roll of perks, if only because it will free up your Energy slot for the Palindrome Hand Cannon or other Energy weapons.|
|Roll: Smallbore, Particle Repeater, Demolitionist/Cornered (Stasis/Non-Stasis), Chill Clip/Surrounded (Stasis/Non-Stasis).||Roll: Smallbore, Particle Repeater, Perpetual Motion, Tap the Trigger.|
Cataclysmic Legendary Precision Frame Linear Fusion Rifle
This Legendary 533 charge time Precision Frame Linear Fusion Rifle uses heavy ammo and deals Solar damage.
Although the Cataclysmic is the first rifle to drop in the raid, we didn’t put it at the top of our list. What makes it different from the well-known powerful Reed’s Regret and Threaded Needle is that it’s the first LFR with the chance to roll Fourth Time’s the Charm, as well as being the first heavy weapon with Successful Warm-Up.
The main interest in this rifle is as an alternative to the already a bit cloying Reed’s Regret and Threaded Needle, and its potential as a Solar weapon with the new season and Solar 3.0 update is likely to make it even more desirable.
|Cataclysmic is more than good for PvE with Fourth Time’s Charm perk, giving you 10 shots without reloading, and paired with Font of Might would be a great choice for Warlocks looking for a good heavy weapon. Focused Fire, High-Impact Reserves, Bait, and Switch with our favorite Fourth Time’s the Charm will do great damage on bosses, and Successful Warm-Up and Adaptive Munitions are great for Lost Sectors and Nightfalls.||For PvP, however, Cataclysmic isn’t the best choice; it can’t compete with Reed’s Regret and Threaded Needle here. But if you really want to play with this new LFR, there are some options.|
|Roll: Arrowhead Brake, Accelerated Coils, Fourth Time’s the Charm, High-Impact Reserves/Focused Fury.||Roll: Arrowhead Brake, Liquid Coils, No Distractions, Box Breathing.|
Insidious Legendary Aggressive Burst Pulse Rifle
This Legendary 450 RPM Aggressive Burst Pulse Rifle uses primary ammo and deals Arc damage.
One of the best weapons in our PvE roll combo picks. A worthy competitor to Sacred Provenance.
|The advantage of this rifle in PvE is the ability to use two perks simultaneously – Dragonfly and One for All. This combination allows you to inflict colossal damage on enemies when you hit three targets.||In PvP the Insidious also has something to boast about, especially in PvP 6v6. At 3v3 it rather loses to Exotics and The Messenger, but with the combination of Rapid Hit with either Rampage or Adrenaline Junkie perks that weapon still performs decently.|
|Roll: Arrowhead Brake, Flared Magwell, Dragonfly, One for All.||Roll: Arrowhead Brake, Accurized Rounds, Rapid Hit, Rampage/Adrenaline Junkie.|
Forbearance Legendary Frame Grenade Launcher
This Legendary 72 RPM Wave Frame Grenade Launcher uses special ammo and deals Arc damage.
And here we did not do without uniqueness – a single, but hopefully not the last, Wave Frame Grenade Launcher with the chance to roll the Chain Reaction perk. A versatile weapon both for PvE clearing and a reliable companion in PvP.
|Chain Reaction paired with Ambitious Assassin can help to clear a huge area with two shots – the targets explode, causing damage around them. This weapon is virtually unmatched in terms of add-clearing potential. Only Salvager’s Salvo can compete with Forbearance Grenade Launcher.||Not a powerful weapon for PvP; it’s bailed out by its reload speed, and an experienced player can quickly switch to his Primaris and make the decisive shot. Surplus and Wellspring are good for such tactics.|
|Roll: Quick Launch, High-Velocity Rounds, Ambitious Assassin, Chain Reaction.||Roll: Quick Launch, High-Velocity Rounds, Surplus, Wellspring.|
Lubrae’s Ruin Legendary Adaptive Glaive
This Legendary Adaptive Glaive uses special ammo and deals Solar damage.
Lubrae’s Ruin is first and foremost a niche melee weapon that will undoubtedly be useful in close combat in the low-end content, but also, with certain characteristics, will serve you well in PvP.
|How can I increase damage and range with a glaive? Very easy – a combination of Grave Robber and Swashbuckler perks will give you an automatic reload after each hit, a 33% damage buff, and increased attack distance. For those who prefer good defense a combination of Immovable Object and Unstoppable Force perks will do.||Combat tactics with glaive in PvP are supposed to be quite aggressive. With the Swashbuckler perk, the same from PvE, but paired with Killing Wind you can deal 33% more damage and strafe after a kill, and the charged shield will give good defense against close targets. An option for strong PvP players in 6v6 playlists, just like Insidious.|
|Roll: Auxiliary Reserves, Appended Mag, Grave Robber, Swashbuckler.||Roll: Auxiliary Reserves, Phase Mag, Killing Wind/Tilting at Windmills, Swashbuckler.|
Collective Obligation Exotic Adaptive Frame Pulse Rifle
And the cherry on top is the Exotic 390 RPM Adaptive Frame Pulse Rifle, which uses primary ammo and deals Void damage.
Finally, we get to the new Exotic, which perfectly correlates with the Void 3.0 subclass. Its unique perks make it very enjoyable to play both PvE and PvP.
“This weapon leeches Void debuffs when damaging targets that are suppressed, weakened, or volatile. Once charged, [Alternate Weapon Action] swap firing modes. In this mode, damage from this weapon applies the same Void debuffs that were leeched.”
“This weapon’s magazine is automatically reloaded when you gain Devour, a Void overshield, or become invisible.”
In PvE, you almost never have to reload it if you have one of the Void buffs active. PvP players will be pleased with the low recoil and good aim assist.
How to get Vow of the Disciple Adept weapons
First of all, let’s remind you that the Adept weapon is essentially an improved version of a normal weapon with higher characteristics, which you can get for completing more difficult challenges.
In addition to higher basic characteristics, which are often superior even to fully boosted craftable weapons, such weapons have special adept mods that make them even more powerful. Adept weapons are the best if you want to have an advantage in Trials of Osiris, Grand Master Nightfalls, or Iron Banner.
To get the Adept versions of the weapons we are talking about in this article you will have to do the weekly challenges in the Master Version of the Vow of the Disciple raid. The Master version is by definition far more difficult than the normal version, and the weekly Challenges are only there, but the reward is worth it. Don’t forget, our players can help you to complete every activity you want, including the Vow of The Disciple Master raid.
There are four weekly Challenges, and you have to keep an eye on their rotation:
- Swift Destruction
- Base Information
- Defenses Down
- Looping Catalyst
So go ahead and remember that Overgear is always ready to help you!
