Ice Breaker is an exotic Sniper Rifle in Destiny. The weapon features self-replenishing ammunition and when fully upgraded, has a chance to return ammo directly to the magazine & cause enemies to explode, similar to the perk "Firefly". This is offset by the fact that Icebreaker starts with zero ammo after the player spawns, regenerates ammo one every six seconds, cannot use special ammo pickups or ammo synthesis, and cannot carry more than a magazine's worth of ammo. This weapon also has two custom ornaments that an change the appearance of the weapon. They can be acquired by opening Treasures of the Dawning and Radiant Treasures.

Grimoire Card[edit]

"The Ice Breaker series was a clandestine project developed by the Vanguard in conjunction with various City weapons foundries. Meant as an exploration of Golden Age weapon technology, the project was scrapped after only a single weapon reached the testing phase.

The prototypes for the project's lone weapon are considered dangerous and unfit for field duty by the Vanguard. This hasn't stopped daring Guardians from seeking out the Ice Breakers - death, after all, is an occupational hazard."
