  • Rapid-Fire Frame (Intrinsic): Deeper ammo reserves. Slightly faster reload when magazine is empty.
  • Choose one from the three following Barrel perks
    • Polygonal Rifling: Barrel optimized for recoil reduction (Increased stability)
    • Corkscrew Rifling: Balanced Barrel (Slightly increases range and stability, Slightly increases handling speed)
    • Full Bore: Barrel optimized for distance (Greatly increases range, Decreases Stability, Slightly decreases handling speed)
  • Seraph Rounds (Magazine): Rounds overpenetrate targets and bounce off hard surfaces.
  • Box Breathing (Trait): Aiming this weapon for a short period without firing grants bonus range and precision damage that resets after firing or exiting zoom.
  • Triple Tap (Trait): Rapidly hitting three precision hits returns 1 round to the magazine.


  • According to the Classical Poet Ovid, the Greek God Ikelos is the son of Morpheus and is himself the god of nightmares.
  • IKELOS SR v1.0.1 is a weapon created by Rasputin as a part of his IKELOS protocol, which is meant to provide the Guardians with weapons to fight The Darkness.
    • Other weapons manufactured according to the IKELOS protocol are the Exotic Linear Fusion Rifle Sleeper Simulant, the legendary shotgun IKELOS SG v1.0.1, hand cannon IKELOS HC v1.0.1, and submachine gun IKELOS SMG v1.0.1.
      • IKELOS legendary weapons can be differentiated by the initials between the IKELOS title and the version number (ie, SR standing for sniper rifle)
    • Based on the Sleeper Simulant Grimoire cards from The Taken King and Warmind, it can be inferred that Rasputin’s Operation Midnight Exigent is preventing him from deploying his total arsenal to fully defend himself and the system, so he must utilize the Guardians as a sort of proxy through the IKELOS protocol.
