Trivia[edit]

  • In earlier versions of Destiny 2, the Tarantula was originally named "Tarantula-3FR".
  • As is the standard for Veist weapons, this weapon's name is a reference to a venomous animal. This rifle references Tarantulas, a group of venomous arachnid species. The description references the fact that some species web their prey after it has been taken down.
