"The Ghost Primus was strong because of his disfigurement, not in spite of it. He alone had the vision to share my dream of a new, perfect world. Ghaul was a creature of singular beauty, and I loved him."
— Weapon Description

Ghost Primus is a legendary auto rifle in Destiny 2. It can be obtained as a reward from the Leviathan raid, by redeeming raid engrams with Benedict 99-40, or by obtaining Clan raid engrams from Suraya Hawthorne.


Intrinsic Properties[edit]

  • Adaptive Frame: A well-rounded grip, reliable and sturdy.

Barrel Modifications[edit]

  • Arrowhead Brake: Lightly vented barrel. Greatly controls recoil, increases handling speed.
  • Corkscrew Rifling: Balanced barrel. Slightly increases range and stability, slightly increases handling speed.
  • Fluted Barrel: Ultra-light barrel. Greatly increases handling speed, slightly increases stability.

Trait #1[edit]

  • High-Impact Reserves: Rounds at the end of the magazine deal more damage.
  • Ambitious Assassin: Overflows the magazine based on the number of rapid kills before reloading.

Trait #2[edit]

  • Under Pressure: Improved stability and accuracy as the magazine gets lower.


Ghaul was an unexpected gift to my coliseum—a disfigured albino from the outer wastes who defeated opponents three times his weight. How could I resist such a unique creature?

He fought with terrible discipline and patience. Most gladiators wanted to stand in the center of the arena and trade blows until the weaker one died. Not Ghaul. He never attacked from the front, never stood in one place. Frustrated and exhausted, his opponent would make a mistake.

I used to play a game with those puffed-up aristocrats that would gamble at my arena. I bet on Ghaul, and anyone who had displeased me had to bet against him. It was fun for a time, but his talent was too valuable to risk in the coliseum. I appointed him Primus of the Red Legion and instead, set him loose upon my enemies.
