How to Get Husk of the Pit / Necrochasm

Published on: Dec 13, 2014 @ 1:44

The Husk of the Pit is a common auto rifle that can eventually be upgraded into the Exotic Necrochasm.

How exactly is it obtained though?

How To Get It?

Blade’s of Crota have a chance at dropping this weapon. We outline the easiest way to get the Husk of the Pit in this video

Upgrade Process

Husk of the Pit is upgraded via 1 Embalming Orb, using the “Cannibalism” perk. The Embalming Orb is purchased from Eris Morn for 10 Black Wax Idols.

The Husk exudes a sense of sinister satisfaction when used to expire its former allies.

After purchasing the Orb from Eris, you’ll be able to evolve this weapon into its Legendary version: Eidolon Ally.

Eidolon Ally is upgraded in a similar way, though you’re not going to be able to simply buy the Crux of Crota for Burgeoning Hunger.

What power drives this appetite that grows after each meal?

The Crux of Crota is obtained exclusively from the hard mode of the raid, a reward from defeating Crota.

This perk will transform the Legendary Eidolon Ally into its final form: Necrochasm.

    I imagine by giving it to demo users then that would provide the incentive to buy the full version of the game…? Smart business.

    • I highly doubt it’s intentional for *only* demo users to have access to it though.

    • Ryan Powers

      It could be that you have to be low level to get it to drop since after you level up high enough the white engrams don’t drop anymore.

      • sbrozzi

        That’s interesting… I have a low level Titan… Maybe I will load him up tonight and see what happens.

        • James

          It doesn’t drop by a normal white engram. It drops from one of the white triangle things they drop. And the only reason its in the demo is because of a bug in the demo coding.

  • BAMozzy69 .

    Disappointed that the ‘Urn’ bounty only gave us gauntlets as I hoped it would give me the Husk of the Pit. Also had similar gauntlets already!
    Really want this weapon!!

  • Micah Yang

    Honestly if I ever find this weapon I might not upgrade it to exotic

    • Christian

      It’s pretty damn amazing. It has twice the impact of a usual high ROF auto rifle. It’s basically aetheon’s epilogue with double damage.

      • Florin

        yea… that’s the problem… it’s atheon’s epilogue lookalike

        • Christian

          Lol. Not really. The two are nothing alike. They just fall into the same category of High ROF auto-rifles. That’s like saying Bad-Juju is a look alike to a common Pulse rifle 🙂

  • Christian

    I assume this is the Raid mode Hard drop. I don’t know any other Exotic raid weapon, so this must be it. The Hard raid will be out January.

  • EnlargedProcrastinator

    Has anyone tried buying white primaries from the Cryptarch?

    • It’s not from an Engram

      • Luke Thomson

        I got it today as a PvP drop

        • Justin Cicchetti

          you on the demo version?
          hate to do this tho….link?

        • bullshit

  • Brick fanatic

    I’m thinking a reward for level 2 Eris

  • ORB1T4L

    Can’t we simply play the demo with our account, get the gun and go back to the full game ? Just a question, thanks 😉

    • I’d just wait for it to be introduced the proper way to avoid any issues you may have

      • Anon E. Mouse

        I tried to play the demo version for my PS3 but it says my account is not compatible with that version. It looks like if you already play Destiny, you are locked out of the demo version.

        • ORB1T4L

          Thanks for the info

  • Micah Yang

    Murmur review?

    • That’s coming

  • Eric Scott

    I have it

    • sbrozzi

      How did you get it…?

  • Brent Buchanan

    Playing Crucible Clash yesterday (Xbox 360) on Pantheon, saw “Husk of the Pit” (white rarity) as a end game random reward in the activity feed when the round ended. No drops on my (Bravo) team. Not sure how to confirm anything from this experience, permalink:

  • Luke Thomson

    I have this

  • Jason Anstey

    I have this rifle. It dropped in the Divide. From a Fallen Vandal I think it was. And yes I was playing the Demo at the time. It does look cool but unless you can upgrade it (you have to have the Dark Below expansion to do so, which I don’t right now) it is not equal to many other common auto rifles you can easily come across. It doesn’t scale to your level when it drops I don’t think, perhaps evidence that it is a bug. So unless you have the Dark Below there is no point in hunting for it. Less of course you like having something only few do. Is it really a bug though? If so I hope my game won’t get screwed up because of it…

  • TruEastSydeBoi

    I have this gun on my account. I just bought the game today. Psn is TruEastSydeBoi

  • Donnie Stuart

    how do you become under the effect of a black wax idol?

  • Captainbirdseye

    You have to pick one up off a knight firstly.
    Then in your inventory your see the black wax idol, just hover over it with your cursor and hold down the relevant button it says use.
    Your now be under the effect of the wax idol for 10mins.
    On your character page there will now be an emblem which you can hover over telling you how long you have left till it runs out.

  • BigBadMadJay

  • Kevoo

    i just got the husk of the pit after i completed a bounty for Eris. I don’t know if it requires a specific bounty to be completed, but the bounty that i finished was to kill 3 Blades of Crotas. I got it on the moon. Idk if this helps at all, but its worth a try.

  • Caleb Duty

    I just got it patrolling in cosmodome. 138 power on it. Only had two levels of upgrade.

  • uglykarma

    I just got the husk of the pit tonight. I was helping a friend with the urn bounty. He has at the part were you have to kill uorck during a public event in skywatch. After we killed him I got it as a green engram. I will look for other ways to contact you. I don’t want my email on a public forum. My psn user name is uglykarma. Same in destiny if you need proof.

  • Reflex

    I just got the Husk of the Pit. I ran the “Fist of Crota” mission about 150 times (I am off today) and finally got it. My friend ran it 3 times and got it. I would love to see the percent chance you have to obtain it. Good luck, Everyone

  • Battleshiplid

    I’ve been slaying blades in patrol for 6 HOURS!! Still no gun 🙁
    Well, back to the grind I guess….. it better feel rewarding when I finally get it!

    • Battleshiplid

      It did take another two hours but I finally got it. I think it’s a really awesome gun, fun to use although not very practical. Looking forward to upgrading it 🙂
