Bastion is a Exotic fusion rifle in the Kinetic slot. It was introduced in Season of Dawn and was available to owners of the Season Pass via the quest Memento. It originally belonged to Saint-14, but was stolen by Reysk after Saint's disappearance. It was eventually reclaimed by Young Wolf. Bastion's aesthetics are meant to match Saint-14's general look.

In Season of Arrivals, it became purchasable from Master Rahool for 100,000 Glimmer, 200 Etheric Spiral, 3 Enhancement Prisms, and an Exotic Cipher.

Perks[edit]

  • Hammer-Forged Rifling: Increases range
  • Liquid Coils: Slower-building charge for higher damage.
  • Breakthrough: A portion of this weapon's damage bypasses elemental shields.
  • Composite Stock: Slightly increases stability. Slightly increases handling speed.

Lore[edit]

My son.

You are a bastion of hope for all who are lost in darkness.

Let this consecrated armament offer protection in times of trial,

strength when you feel most alone,

and guidance when there are no roads.

Your Light will shine on to lead our people into peace.

Let this be a symbol of our dedication to their future.

Know that I am proud.
Father

The epitaph is barely readable, appearing to have been scraped almost clean from the frame. Below the stricken words, five hash-marks are engraved into the weapon. A small etching in Eliksni reads:

|||||
"dead… little… thieves…"

Trivia[edit]

  • Bastion is the second fusion rifle, linear or otherwise, to be in the Kinetic slot, the first being Arbalest.
  • Bastion is stated to be one of the Young Wolf's favorite weapons.
