Tractor Cannon is an exotic Shotgun in Destiny 2.


Property of Ishtar Collective. WARNING: Gravity propulsor beam can cause serious injury or even death.

Chioma Esi met Maya in their undergraduate gym. They got into an argument about deadlifting: was it necessary, was it practical, why was Chioma making so much noise? Maya Sundaresh just couldn't stand the notion that some things were done for their own sake, not because they had any use. Decades later they joined the Ishtar Collective on Venus to study the enigmatic ruins unearthed by the Traveler's terraforming. The first time it happened—Vex code leaping across an airgap, surfing the quantum vacuum from simulation to reality, infecting a utility frame—Chioma pulled an alarm while Maya tried to grab the precious frame with a cargo-grade gravity grapple. She couldn't lift the grapple. Chioma grabbed it, pinned the frame to the wall, and won the argument.


The Tractor Cannon fires Void blasts that knock their targets back and stun them. This allows the wielder to either shove enemies into walls, causing extra damage, or off a ledge to kill them outright. Kills with this weapon will trigger the "Scientific Method" buff, which will increase movement speed and weapon handling for a short time; the buff's duration is refreshed if the user nets another kill. The enemy will be suppressed and can't use abilities for a bit. The enemy will be 50% more vulnerable to Void damage, and 33% more vulnerable to other elemental damage.

Weapon Perks[edit]

This section needs expansion. You can help Destinypedia by expanding it.


  • The design aesthetic of this weapon is reminiscent of the Hunter's assault cannon in the Halo series.
  • The weapon was originally a property of the Ishtar Collective to lift and move heavy objects. The way Guardians utilize it is much more simple, as the Cannon's only apparent ability is to push enemies away with brutal force. This might hint against that someone reprogrammed it, perhaps to survive after the Collapse, or that it became damaged by unknown means.
