Locus Locutus


The Locus Locutus is a Legendary sniper rifle introduced during Destiny 2’s Season of the Witch. It is part of the Hive-inspired collection of craftable weapons that players can earn during the season.

How to get Locus Locutus in Destiny 2

Just like the other seasonal weapons during the Season of the Witch, you can get the Locus Locutus by taking part in seasonal activities, traversing through the season’s story, or focusing engrams at the Ritual Table. Locus Locutus becomes craftable when you acquire five Deepsight weapon patterns. 

Locus Locutus God Rolls

Locus Locutus PVE God Roll

  •  Arrowhead Break
  • Accurized Rounds
  • Overflow / Wellspring
  • Box Breathing
  • Masterwork: Handling, Range

The Locus Locutus features several traits that work in PVE. Overflow loads this weapon beyond its capacity after picking up Special or Heavy ammo, otherwise try Wellspring since it rewards your kills with ability energy generation. Box Breathing, on the other hand, will grant you bonus range and precision damage when aiming the weapon down sights. Also, you can pair this with the Arrowhead Break barrel to snipe targets with increased handling and recoil control.

Locus Locutus PVP God Roll

  •  Corkscrew Rifling
  • Tactical Mag
  • Keep Away
  • Opening Shot
  • Masterwork: Handling, Range

For PVP, Locus Locutus features a handy combination of Keep Away and Opening Shot. The first will increase your weapon’s range, reload, and accuracy whenever there are no targets nearby while the latter improves the accuracy and range of your opening shot. So, while you are looking for opponents in the Crucible, you will passively receive the Keep Away boosts, which can amplify Opening Shot once you encounter an opponent, increasing your survival chances.

About the Author

"The cards cannot truly predict the future. They only offer perspective," Eris said. She stood with Eido at the Lectern of Divination, laying each card with purpose. "Your thoughts on their meanings will be appreciated."

Eido didn't reply; she was looking over her shoulder and towards the ritual circle at the center of the Athenaeum. Eris continued.

"Your insight into Xivu Arath's motivations avoided disaster," Eris said, trying to catch her attention. "We were able to warn Queen Mara and convince Rasputin of his error."

Eido nodded, looking down at the table. With the tip of one claw, she aligned the edge of The Adherent card with the edge of its neighbor.

"You want to ask me something," Eris said after a long pause. She had never known Eido to refrain from asking any question that came to mind, and the Scribe's new hesitance was surprising.

"Yes," Eido said, then paused. When she spoke again, it was in a whisper. "This is where it… happens? Your… transformations."

Her voice strained at the last word.

"Yes. Where the runes are most powerful," Eris answered coolly. "Here, and in the Witch Queen's oubliette."

Eido nodded.

"That word is from an old Human language," Eido said, her voice regaining a little of the cheer that Eris recognized. "Its root means 'to forget,' I believe."

"Yes, you are correct." "And, ah…" Eido paused again, the question tangling in her throat. "Do you… forget? Who you are?"

Eris took a breath. In their research together, Eido had learned to be blunt.

"No," Eris said. "I am myself. Always."

Eido's eyes widened. There was silence. No questions, no curiosity. Only the unblinking stare of someone too afraid to speak.

"There is nothing to fear," Eris said, and she did not know if that was comforting. Eido nodded and looked away.

"Of course not," the Scribe answered. "I didn't think there would be."

Eris wondered if others had lied more convincingly.
