Despite the fact that Destiny 2: Shadowkeep only had a few exotic guns during its release, all of them stood out as top-tier right away. Eriana’s Voe is one exotic that has been a crowd favorite. Eriana’s Vow is a special hand cannon that acts like a sniper rifle, piercing shields and doing additional harm on the first shot.
Eriana’s Vow is a strong exotic weapon on its own and welcome addition to Destiny 2, but when paired with its exotic catalyst, it can be much more effective. The catalyst helps the hand cannon to carry more ammunition in its magazine, which gives it the advantage of an auto-loading holster (reloads the weapon when not equipped).
But there’s a catch: the Eriana’s Vow catalyst isn’t easy to unlock. It necessitates the completion of Gambit, Strikes, or Crucible matches but the percentage required per match is less than 1%. The Premium Season Pass allows players to increase their credit, but even then, progress is slow.
Fortunately, there is a simple way to make quick progress in unlocking Eriana’s Vow catalyst. Bungie has added the Scorched game mode to the Rotator Crucible Playlist for the Shadowkeep. For those unfamiliar with Scorched, it is a game in which each player is given a Scorch Cannon, and the mayhem begins.
Scorched’s advantage is that the matches are quick and short, making it an ideal mode for completing Eriana’s Vow catalyst. Despite the fact that players in Destiny 2 will not be utilizing the exotic hand cannon, they will earn progress with each match completed. Scorched matches can be completed in half the time of Crucible games, which can take up to 10 minutes.
Obviously, players would still require some time to complete their Eriana’s Vow catalyst, but this is by far the quickest process. Most notably, Scorched is only accessible occasionally as part of the Rotator Playlist, so players should take advantage of it while they can. Bungie is likely to make more use of this new playlist and Scorched, but the Crucible mode may not return for a while.
