What is Void Volatility in Destiny 2?

Big badda boom

With the release of The Witch Queen expansion in Destiny 2, Bungie has unleashed Void 3.0 on players. One new aspect of that is Void Volatility. However, the way the ability works and how to use it isn't abundantly clear.

Void Volatility is a debuff applied to foes, much like Suppression or Weakening. Bungie describes it as "The target will explode in a Void detonation upon taking additional damage. If the target dies before Volatile has taken enough damage to detonate, the detonation happens anyway."

Each class has different ways of applying Void Volatility. Warlocks can apply it with their Pocket Singularity melee attack. Titans can apply it with the Sentinel Shield and the Controlled Demolition Aspect equipped. Hunters utilize the ability with their Moebius Quiver super.

Additionally, a mod called Volatile Flow allows players to gain access to Volatile rounds after picking up a Void elemental well. Finally, a fragment for each class called Echo of Instability activates after getting kills with grenades and then gives Void weapons Volatile rounds.
