Service history

The SUROS Regime is an exotic Auto Rifle introduced in Destiny Year One.[1] A Year Two version of the SUROS Regime was available in The Taken King.[2]


Year One[edit]

When fully upgraded, the perk SUROS Regime allows the bottom half of each magazine to deal bonus damage and has a chance to return health when dealing damage. In addition, the perk Focused Fire increases the weapon's damage at the cost of reducing its fire rate.[3] It is a capable weapon in the Crucible and in lower level Strikes. It has low recoil, a magazine of 33 rounds, and does high damage per impact.

Year Two[edit]

The Year Two version of the SUROS Regime retains the SUROS Regime and Focused Fire perks, but adds a new perk called Spinning Up that increases its fire rate the longer it is fired. Spinning Up and Focused Fire are interchangeable. The SUROS Regime's aesthetics have also been changed.


Barrel Upgrades[edit]

  • Field Choke: More range and impact. Increased recoil.
  • Linear Compensator: More predictable recoil. Slight boosts to range and impact. More recoil.
  • Smart Drift Control: Predictable and controllable recoil. Penalty to range.

Special Perks[edit]

  • Spinning Up: The longer this weapon is fired, the faster it fires.
  • Focused Fire: When zoomed, this weapon fires slower, but causes additional damage.

Exotic Perk[edit]

  • SUROS Legacy: Bonus damage with bottom half of magazine. Chance to return health when dealing damage.

Stat Modifiers[edit]

  • Hammer Forged: Improved range and accuracy.
  • Lightweight: When held, this weapon grants +2 character Agility.


"It’s a sleek beast from a simpler time – a death dealer wrapped in nostalgia."
—Jonathan Goff
  • It was known as the "Arcus Regime" during development.[4]
