Grasp of Malok is a legendary pulse rifle available from the Will of Crota Strike.



The Grasp of Malok is known for its incredibly low drop rate. In order to get it, one would have to grind the Will of Crota Strike multiple times. When the player finally gets one to drop, they will be greeted with one of the fastest-firing pulse rifles in the game, and if it happens to drop with good perks, it will be an all-around reliable weapon. The Grasp of Malok is a very powerful PvP primary, being able to take out enemy Guardians in record time from deceptively long ranges. This is in part because of the aim assistance, which is one of the highest of any pulse rifle in Destiny, allowing it to stay on target for longer periods of time, which could come in handy in extended gunfights.
