Vow Of The Disciple Rewards (& Secret Chest Locations)

Vow Of The Disciple Rewards (& Secret Chest Locations)

The Vow of the Disciple Raid contains new weapons, weapon patterns, and armor rewards that players can earn in Destiny 2, as well as hidden chests.

The Vow of the Disciple Raid rewards contain some of the most powerful weapons in Destiny 2, but due to their randomized drops, they can be extremely difficult to get. Additionally, Vow of the Disciple has two secret chests and an elaborate multi-step chest that only appears at the end of the Raid. There are plenty of opportunities to earn rewards throughout this Raid, and although its mechanics can be complicated to learn at first many players have found that Vow of the Disciple is easily one of the best activities in Destiny 2.

One of the reasons why the six Legendary Raid weapons are so special is that they can all be created in Destiny 2’s new weapon crafting system, provided players actually acquire the Deepsight Resonance versions to get the individual weapon patterns. While each of the weapon patterns can be earned randomly throughout the encounter reward chests, two guaranteed weapon patterns can be earned once per week. Additionally, the secret chests can also reward weapon patterns, provided players actually find a given weapon at the end of a normal encounter first.

There are a lot of rewards to keep track of in the Vow of the Disciple Raid, including a unique armor set for each class. Furthermore, players can also get the Echoed Anger Shader by finding the two secret chests, and Vow of the Disciple specific mods and Spoils of Conquest by finding the chests as well. Unfortunately, the downside of the loot pool is that the new Exotic Raid weapon in Destiny 2 called Collective Obligation does not have a Catalyst for players to unlock. However, the upside is that the weapon is designed to work perfectly with all Void subclasses for all characters.

With its Void Leech intrinsic trait, Collective Obligation leeches the Void debuff as it damages targets that are suppressed, weakened, or volatile. By using the Alternate Weapon Action, players can then swap the Void Pulse Rifle’s firing mode to apply damage from the same Void debuffs it leeched. Furthermore, its Exotic trait, Umbral Sustenance, automatically reloads the weapon when players gain the Devour effect, have a Void overshield applied, or become invisible.

Similar to other Raid Exotics such as the Vex Mythoclast Fusion Rifle in Destiny 2, Collective Obligation has an extremely rare drop rate. Furthermore, players can only attempt to earn it once per week per character, which means if they complete Vow of the Disciple more than once with any character they’ll just get a different weapon or gear piece instead. Collective Obligation can only be earned by completing the final encounter of the Raid, namely defeating Rhulk, Disciple of the Witness.

Every Secret Chest Location In Vow Of The Disciple

Destiny 2 Vow Of The Disciple Raid

The first secret chest in Vow of the Disciple is can be found before the fireteam even enters the Pyramid in the Disciple’s Bog. As the fireteam continues to escort the payload to the Pyramid’s entrance, three Resonant Shards can be found at different stops and destroyed. As each Resonant Shard is approached, an icon will appear over it to help guide players to their exact locations. Once they’re all found and destroyed, a doorway will open up before the team heads inside the Pyramid to begin the first official encounter in Vow of the Disciple.

Resonant Shard 1: Once the payload stops moving, head to the back of the swamp alcove on the left.Resonant Shard 2: At the next stop, look for the Obelisk partially sunken in the swamp to find the Resonant Shard on the other side.Resonant Shard 3: The final Resonant Shard is under the bridge on the left after the payload flies over it.

Once all of the Resonant Shards have been destroyed a doorway will open up at the next stop and the hidden chest can be found inside.

The second secret chest is found deep inside the Raid, and can only be accessed once the Vow of the Disciple Caretaker encounter has been completed. During the jumping puzzle, the fireteam will need to take the hidden pathway to the right after leaving the second room. The platforms that the team needs to jump to are toggled on and off, so at least two teammates at a time will need to work to get across every platform. A floating shard is in the second room that one teammate will need to shoot to activate the platforms, but once the teammate that is jumping across them reaches the chest they’ll be able to unlock all of the platforms at once. The chest is tucked away inside of an attic-like entrance in the middle of the next room, so equipping a chest finder Ghost mod will help direct players to its location as well.

The final secret chest will guarantee players one of Destiny 2’s Raid weapon patterns, but it can only be accessed after the fireteam defeats Rhulk. An Obelisk will appear just inside the Pyramid entrance, and those three symbols represent which of the 11 potential rooms that players have to enter to activate the symbols. Fortunately, Forbes Columnist Paul Tassi has detailed all 11 rooms for the final secret chest. To claim the aforementioned Echoed Anger Shader, however, players will only need to find the first two secret chests, as the final is strictly for weapon patterns.
