The Catalyst increases Skyburner's Oath's range by 27 and Masterworks it.
- Slug Rifle
- Note that this is a projectile weapon with rounds that have velocity (like rocket launchers), therefore it does not have range falloff.
- Hip-fire slug travels ≈51.72m/s
- 185% damage on precision hit.
- Hip-fire explosion damage deals 82% on body, 93% on precision. ADS explosion damage deals 82% on body, 54% on precision.
- This weapon has Explosive Payload.

- Skyburner's Oath behaves like a Lightweight Scout Rifle when it is hip-fired. While aiming down sights, the weapon instead behaves like a High-Impact Scout Rifle due to the Slug Rifle perk taking effect. This makes Skyburner's Oath the only weapon which possesses two different weapon archetypes.
- A side-effect of the Oath's archetype change from Lightweight to High-Impact when aiming down sights is a noticeable reduction in fire rate. The increase in damage is equal to roughly +27%.
- Naturally, the Oath's Solar Damage, Bonus Damage to Cabal, and ability to bypass Phalanx shields makes it quite useful for portions of The Leviathan Raid.
- As with most weapons the Oath includes a small display with an ammo readout, though the numerals are displayed using Cabal characters.
Some grunts are born to fight the war. Yes, they're loyal and true, and when the call comes "hot drop in five," well, they're always first in the queue. But I'm not one of them. I'm no hero, I'm in no hurry to die. I shot my own squad on Phobos, when death came to wear us like armor. I rode the Primus's ship that rammed the Hive dreadnaught. Second wave out the hatch. We won that fight. Victory or death. We're not dead, so we won.
Now this is the end, brothers, our final fight. Ghaul's here to finish it. Mars taught us how to fight Guardians. The Hive taught us how to eat their Light. Remember that we made it possible. The Red Legion ends it. But we held the line and we didn't die. That's victory. It says so on the gun.
