Lore tab[edit]

"SOME THINGS SHOULD STAY BURIED"

"Get your axe and your pick and your shovel and your spine. We're goin' prospectin'."
"What?"
"That. The quote. I don't get it."
"It's an old saying. It's about puttin' in a hard day's work."
"Seems... antiquated."
"How so?"
"My grenade launcher's full auto and goes boom on command. What do I need hand tools for?"
"It's a metaphor. It ain't literal. At least not anymore. Your launcher is your hand tool."
"Ahh. Got it. Good to know."

Trivia[edit]

  • The Comstock Lode ornament's name is likely a reference to the the real life Comstock Lode, a large deposit of silver ore located in the state of Nevada first discovered around 1859.
  • The Prospector was once rated one of the worst exotics in Destiny 2 but with the arrival of the Leviathan raid it was found that it was the only way to destroy the Watchers in the Leviathan underbelly without triggering the alarm sequence playing solo.
