- — In-game description
IKELOS_SG_V1.0.1 is a Legendary Shotgun introduced in the Warmind expansion for Destiny 2 and can be acquired from Escalation Protocol. The bosses that can drop it are Nur Abath, Crest of Xol, Naksud, the Famine, and Bok Litur, Hunger of Xol.
Similarly to all the other IKELOS weapons, this Shotgun looks like it was manufactured by Rasputin, the last remaining Warmind in the Sol System. It belongs to the highest rate-of-fire archetype of Shotguns in Destiny 2. This gun comes with a perk called "Trench Barrel", which substantially increases damage per shot (with a stricter range falloff) for a short time after melee attacks. Because of the main perk, and its fast-ROF archetype, this gun is capable of putting out immense damage numbers, which can be further amplified by class abilities such as Melting Point on Titans and Empowering Rifts on Warlocks, or the debuff from Tractor Cannon.
