Destiny 2: How to get the Prosecutor Legendary Auto Rifle

A new auto rifle might be both a PvP and PvE star.

Though Guardian Games All-Stars and the new hoverboard are stealing the Destiny 2 spotlight, March 5 was packed with additions. New weapons debuted via a Prophecy Dungeon loot refresh, and part of that arsenal is the Prosecutor auto rifle. This Precision Frame Arc weapon might be one players want to seek out, as it’s readily accessible and sports a fantastic Perk pool.

Prophecy is a free Dungeon available to all players, released at the tail end of the Shadowkeep expansion in 2020. The Dungeon spirits Guardians into a realm of mysterious god-like beings to contemplate the nature of Light and Darkness. Prophecy initially featured the A Swift Verdict sidearm, The Long Walk sniper, and an auto rifle called The Last Breath, but those were retired as new options moved in.

Which Prophecy encounter drops the Prosecutor?

If players are only returning to Prophecy for their shot at the Prosecutor, they’re in luck. The auto rifle drops exclusively from the first encounter, making any potential farming just a quick run away. The first encounter in Prophecy is the Phalanx Echo, a shielded Taken Cabal.

The Phalanx Echo shouldn’t pose too much of a threat to players. All that’s needed is a quick jaunt around the arena, activating Light and Dark plates to kick into the damage phase. From there, the boss isn’t as imposing as it once was, so it wouldn’t be too surprising for groups to one-shot it. If not, that’ll just mean another round of Light and Dark plates before it’s finished off.

What can the Prosecutor roll with?

The Prosecutor has the prospect of becoming an Arc auto rifle favorite. The weapon’s perk pool can facilitate PvE and PvP play, but it will likely appeal most to those diving into the Crucible. At 450 RPM and with its Precision Frame, the Prosecutor has the potential to be a real laser beam.

For PvP, Guardians may want to prioritize earning a Prosecutor with Perks that better support mid to long-range encounters. The auto rifle can drop with Zen Moment, Rewind Rounds, and Keep Away in the first slot, with Target Lock and Tap The Trigger appearing in the second slot.

PvE players can also get some mileage out of the Prosecutor, especially with an Arc build. The auto rifle can roll with several impressive PvE Perks, and some form explosive combinations. The first slot can appear with favorites like Dragonfly or Rewind Rounds, while Voltshot, Target Lock, and Frenzy are lookouts for slot two.

The weapon will perform regardless of where players want to use the Prosecutor. All that remains is for Guardians to secure the stat roll they want.
