"Cryptarchs made a crystal that starts fires? Get me one. I don't care how you do it. Go!" —Cayde-6 Read Lore

How's it work? Ha! The underlying principles are quite simple, really. The gun's pyreliophorite crystal— Pyreliophorite? It's an Ionian crystal which bears some resemblance to rudimentary perovskite, which is, as you should know, a crystal with unique photovoltaic properties— Photovoltaic? It means "regarding the conversion of light into electricity." No, no, the gun doesn't create electricity; the gun induces an external combustion reaction. It's perovskite that— I just explained the perovskite! If you'd stop interrupting— Wait. I remember you. You're one of Cayde's Hunters! Get out of here! Shoo! The Cryptarchy wants nothing to do with you!

I don't care what anyone says, I will never not love this weapon. It was the second exotic I ever got and it is immensely enjoyable to use. Prometheus Lens will always a special place in my heart. Also, it's pretty damn good.

If you are great at aim tracking, look no further. Lazer puts out a heat field and has a chance to reload some ammo!
