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], as well as being introduced again in Destiny 2 via Warmind.


Nostalgia as a weapon of war. Style as a hallmark of victory.

Suros engineers designed the Regime using recovered Golden Age schematics. Forced out of production by a crippling shortage of smartmatter, the few remaining models are cherished by those Guardians fortunate enough to wield them.

Lore (Destiny 2)[edit]

Nostalgia as a weapon of war. Style as a hallmark of victory.

Few weapons have withstood the test of time longer than the trusty SUROS Regime. This is Golden Age tech brought to life by the fastidious engineers at SUROS. Its smart-matter frame is prized among Guardians for both efficiency and rarity. Some things never fall out of fashion.


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.
