Since the release of the Age of Triumph event, some of Destiny’s previous item quests and objectives have changed. One of these weapons, the Necrochasm, has been the bane of Guardians for quite some time, as it takes a lot of work to acquire the weapon, upgrade it completely, and then complete the quest issued to unlock the Exotic version. In this article we’ll go over all of the updated steps and show you how to get the Necrochasm in Destiny.

How to Get the Necrochasm

As we stated above, some of the steps required to obtain the Necrochasm have changed quite a bit since the Destiny of Year 1 and Year 2. While the initial steps are mostly the same, the later steps require access to the revamped raids like Crota’s End. One of the things that makes this weapon so unique is the way that it changes throughout the weapon quest.

Step 1: To start the quest for your Necrochasm you must first obtain the Husk of the Pit. This weapon can be dropped by killing any Hive enemies in the game. The easiest way to do this is to load up a Hive based mission and go to town. Once it drops, you can move on to the next step. If you happen to get Wizards as your enemy to kill, head over to our guide on the best places to farm Hive Wizards.

Step 2: Now you must “charge” the Husk of the Pit by killing a specific type of Hive enemy several times. The enemy that you must focus on is randomized with each drop of the Husk of the Pit, but most commonly we’ve seen players needing to kill enemies like Wizards and Knights, though it could be any Hive enemy.

Step 3: Once the Husk of the Pit is “fully charged” it’s time to upgrade all of the nodes available within it and then head to the Tower and chat with The Speaker.

Step 4: After talking to The Speaker, it’s time to “Purge the Darkness” from the Husk of the Pit by using 25 Motes of Light. This will transform the weapon into Eidolon Ally, and Eris will give you the quest “Essence of the Oversoul”.

Step 5: To complete the “Essence of the Oversoul” quest, players much traverse the Abyss in Crota’s End and complete the raid at Light Level 390. They’ll also need to load up the Will of Crota strike and take down Omnigul.

Step 6: With the quest complete and the Essence of Oversoul in-hand, head into your inventory and upgrade the Eidolon Ally to the Necrochasm. This completes your quest for the Necrochasm, allowing you to now use the newly augmented auto rifle to dispose of your enemies. The new Necrochasm has quite a few additions, too, like Ornament slots, additional upgrade options, and an improvement to its unique perk.
