This is why I hate RNG weapons (Criticism)

It's one thing to have RNG around some of the weapon perks. A lot of people seem to like that (I don't personally). Exotics, however, should always have a defined path to get them, otherwise players just get frustrated when they can't ever seem to earn them. Imagine if 1K voices required simply beating the last encounter with everyone alive when you turned the heart in and opening a specific chest. Or maybe there is a hidden chest that always drops it if you don't have it that players would have had to discover.

I feel like it's okay if it's RNG, but there are other ways of getting it, like as you said, pull off some feat or maybe after a set amount of wins. At that point you are cutting off the edge cases of just bad chance.

RNG is great for that surprise factor, but it can quickly sour if you go 50 runs without the exotic.
