A Grimoire Card of Arc

"A spark can give life...or take it."
— Grimoire.

Arc is one of several known manifestations of the Light, along with Solar and Void. It is related to electricity and electromagnetism, and can be wielded by Guardians to generate lightning bolts and other electromagnetic phenomena. It is also one of four classes of elemental damage common to all Guardian weapons.


"Arc energy's not just electricity. Lot more finicky than that. Fission."

Many of the Golden Age technologies of Humanity possesses circuitry, generators that run on Arc Energy, including weapons as well as tech that produces holograms.[2][3][4] Vex are known to have a hindrance to exposure to Arc Energy, although this would be if they weren’t attempting to harness it. [5] Arc is even found in the weather system itself.[6] Arc energy can be found in Dark Ether with how the Screebs and Abominations use their attacks. Concentrated Arc can even distort space, and enough of it can even hinder Transmat usage.[7][8]

Striker Titans use arc light to charge their fists with lightning to obliterate their foes with a deadly close range ability known as Fist of Havoc.

Bladedancer Hunters manifest arc light to create pair of arc knives known as Arc_Blade.

Warlocks known as Stormcallers use arc light to destroy their enemies with the power of the storm known as Stormtrance.
