PSA: Destiny 2 Prometheus Lens Sold by Xur, Enjoy It Before the Nerf

Share this:

In addition to covering Destiny 2 Xur’s inventory in our usual weekly update post, I figured that a separate article was warranted on this very special occasion. You see, Xur is selling the incredibly overpowered Prometheus Lens weapon, which I think players need to experience before the inevitable nerf.

Yes, I know that the Crucible will become a mess for the weekend, but I think it’s important that all Destiny players wield what is a truly overpowered weapon.

Head over to Xur and make the purchase, then dive into the Crucible and see just how much damage this thing kicks out. (Of course, you’ll likely come across others taking advantage of the weapon’s power!)

Here’s a rundown of the Prometheus Lens’ perks, which combine to make for an insane damage output!

Prismatic Inferno

Fires a Solar trace beam and generates a damaging heat field that grows while the weapon continues to fire.

Chambered Compensator

Stable barrel attachment

– Increases stability

– Moderately controls recoil

– Slightly decreases handling speed

Projection Fuse

Distance optimizations. 

– Increases range

Flame Refraction

Kills with this weapon return a fraction of the ammo used to the magazine, extending the beam’s duration.

Composite Stock

This weapon has a versatile dual-purpose stock.

– Slightly increases stability

– Slightly increases handling speed

Will you be trying out the Prometheus Lens trace rifle this weekend? Let us know.

In other Destiny 2 news, the game’s future updates were detailed in a “State of the Game” overview, a limited edition loot crate is now available to pre-order, and a Destiny 2 free trial is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
