How to get Cataclysmic

To get Cataclysmic you’ll have to run the Witch Queen Raid called Vow of the Disciple. Cataclysmic has the chance to drop from the 1st and 2nd encounters, that’s Acquisition and Caretaker. To run the raid you’ll need access to the Witch Queen expansion, and you’ll have to find 5 other Guardians. You can either get some friends together, or run with some clanmates, or you can find other Guardians via LFG apps or forums. I recommend using the Bungie app, that’s available for iOS, Android or via

There’s also a chance at the end of the raid to trade in your spoils of conquest for weapons that have already dropped. You’ll collect spoils of conquest throughout the raid as they drop from encounters and secret chests. So if you want another roll of your Cataclysmic, then check out the vendor at the end of the raid.

Finally, Cataclysmic is craftable at the Relic near the Enclave. You’ll need to collect 5 red-bordered versions of the weapon, which means they have Deepsight Resonance. Once you have collected these, you’ll then need to level them all up to unlock the Pattern for Cataclysmic. Once you have the Pattern, you’ll be able to craft your very own version of Cataclysmic. You can get a red weapon in the raid each week if you successfully complete the raid puzzle.
