Production overview



Rarity class:


Weapon type:

Fusion Rifle

Min-max magazine:






The Plan C is an Exotic fusion rifle obtainable in Destiny, either by purchasing it from Xûr, Agent of the Nine or by Exotic weapon engram drops.


Good fighters have contingency plans. Great fighters don't need them.

Sharp reflexes keep you alive on the frontier - but no matter how fast you are, a fusion rifle can only charge so quickly. Enter the Plan C. When you draw the weapon, fast-rise capacitors and a smart induction system prime for firing. The 'ready fire' state only lasts a few moments - but in a gunfight, those moments matter.


As the name suggests, Plan C is an excellent backup weapon. Switching to it is incredibly fast, and starts with a very short charge time, making it great for emergencies.[1]

The namesake trait lasts for one second with a hidden 10 second cooldown between uses.
