Legend of Acrius is an exotic Shotgun in Destiny 2. This weapon is earned by completing the "On the Comms" and "Destroyer of Worlds" quests.

Lore[edit]

"In the Cabal legend, a hero seeks to possess the sun. He succeeds. Then, he becomes Emperor. The Cabal… are not a subtle people." —Tyra Karn

That really is the entire myth. A Cabal named Acrius desires the sun, and he takes it and becomes the first Emperor of the Cabal. Other scholars have already noted the parallels and differences with our own ancient Earth myth of Icarus, which famously has a far more humbling ending. I am more interested in how Cabal leaders throughout history have deployed this legend as a rhetorical and political justification for conquest. Among the most relevant such figures is Dominus Ghaul himself, who appears to have a personal affinity for the Acrius myth. I must also note here that, while linguistic analysis of the Cabal language and its many dialects is incomplete, they do not appear to have a word for the concept of “hubris.” —Research notes of Tyra Karn

Gameplay[edit]

It is a wieldable version of the Cabal Slug Shotgun, dealing an incredible amount of damage from longer ranges than normal at the expense of having a very limited magazine size. The Legend of Acrius is available after completing the Red War campaign and the Adventure Invitation from the Emperor, after which an exotic quest begins that requires the player to kill Cabal on Nessus, then complete the Leviathan raid. This weapon can be upgraded further to unlock more perks by completing more challenges.
