"Osiris said that he started to pity the Red Legion, getting trapped in here for infinite eternities. I think they're getting exactly what they deserve."
— Sagira

D.F.A. is a Legendary KineticS.png Hand Cannon that could be acquired from the Nightfall version of the Tree of Probabilities Strike. In Season of Arrivals, it was given to players by Brother Vance after completing his portion of the Exodus quest as the strike was due to be vaulted.

This weapon was reprised during Season of the Haunted as part of the Vanguard Strike activity loot pool. An Adept version of this weapon was also available from Nightfalls completions on Grandmaster difficulty.

Trivia[edit]

  • D.F.A. is short for "Deterministic finite automata", which are finite-state machines that accept or reject strings of characters by parsing them through a sequence that is uniquely determined by each string. This is in reference to the combat loop simulation that trapped Valus Thuun and his Red Legion contingent within the Infinite Forest.
