"In battle, you can only count on two things: your comrades and your Khvostov."
— unattributed, Golden Age military expression.

The Khvostov 7G-0X is an Exotic Auto Rifle that can be acquired in the Rise of Iron expansion.[1] It is an exotic version of the Khvostov 7G-02, the very first weapon acquired in Destiny.


This gun can be obtained by completing the We Found a Rifle Exotic quest. It will start by finding a Khvostov Schematic either by dismantling the old Khvostov, or opening a chest on the Devil Splicers' Ketch in the Plaguelands where Guardians spawn into the game for the very first time using a Splicer Intel Relay, which can be obtained by killing either Brood Mothers or Brood Enforcers in the Plaguelands. The schematic then must turned in to Shiro-4, thus triggering the quest. You will then have to find 3 Khvostov Weapon Parts, each of which can be found in Dock 13, The Divide, and The Blast respectively, followed by Manual Pages, which can be obtained by killing any enemy in the Plaguelands. Once these parts and pages are turned in, the quest then takes the player back to where they were first found on a mission called A Khvostov Rising to retrieve the upgraded Khvostov by killing Kaviss, Splicer Captain.


The Khvostov 7G-0X is a unique Exotic in that it doesn't have an Exotic perk. Instead, its Exotic nature stems from the fact that it is highly customizable; there is simply no wrong way to use this weapon. Although the base stats start off in the middle-of-the road, its potential stems from its modularity.


There are 108 total possible perk combinations available. With this much customization at hand, the player can make this weapon work however they want, making it a very versatile weapon built for all purposes, whether for competing against other players in PVP or clearing out waves of enemies in PVE.

"You don't know how long I've been looking for you."

Day 1. 

The world is dead, but there's peace in the mortuary silence. I'm born into this dead world, where dandelions grow up through layers of ash blanketing miles of desolate road. 

Day 673. 

There is a stretch of land, a canyon through which water once flowed. A canal cut into the earth, bristling with derelict ships and countless dead. Flowers bloom in many desiccated carcasses. Each component of this world's decomposition has a purpose: water flows, cities decay, flowers bloom. Yet still I search for mine.

Day 1,857.

Oceans are vast, lonely expanses. Though life flourishes in the depths, it's not life that I'm looking for. I thrive on death—search for death. Perhaps my purpose lies below the water, but it's dark, and lonely, and I… I don't want to look there yet. Not when there's so much more horizon.

Day 6,231.

I was careless and someone shot me from all the way across a field. The bullet only chipped my shell, but it spun me around and left me shaken. I don't know who they were or even why I was targeted. I played dead, and no one came for me. I laid in the tall grass for nine days. It rained on the fifth. I acquainted myself with the ants. They are survivors.

Day 36,725.

This world is dead, but life is threatening a return. I don't know when I'll ever fulfill my purpose, but I know what I am. I'm a ghost haunting the grave of humanity. A Ghost with a calling.


  • This weapon has at least 100 different perk combinations.
