The Gjallarhorn is an exotic rocket launcher. Gjallarhorn fires rockets which deploy secondary sentries at the site of impact, devastating enemies that come by afterward. The weapon sports an ornate design with multiple decorative wolves emblazoned along its exterior, the most prominent of which protrudes from the front. Gjallarhorn can be obtained from Xur, Agent of the Nine for a total of 17 strange coins.
The Gjallarhorn was designed and personally crafted by Feizel Crux as a gift to the Guardians who fought the Battle of the Twilight Gap. It was forged from the armor of the Guardians who fell in battle.
- Countermeasure: "Less recoil. Penalty to impact."
- Linear Compensator: "More predictable recoil. Slight boost to range and impact. More recoil."
- Warlord Veniers: "More range and impact. Increased recoil."
- Tracking: "Shells fired from this weapon track their targets."
- Heavy Warhead: "This warhead considerably improves impact, but fewer can be carried in reserve."
- Fieldwire Fragments: "Charged fieldwire shrapnel increases impact."
- Light Warhead: "This compact, lightweight warhead allows you to carry more in reserve."
- Wolfpack Rounds: "Rounds fired from this weapon split into tracking cluster missiles upon detonation."
- Bungie 3D modeller and Gjallahorn's designer, Mark Van Haitsma, added a wolf onto the weapon for each day he spent working on it. A total of 16 wolves thus far can be seen in in the various images of the weapon.
- Knights and gladiators inspired the design of the Gjallarhorn.
- The Gjallarhorn was used in the Destiny live action trailer Become Legend.
- During the E3 2013 gameplay demo, the Gjallarhorn was called the "Wolfpack." However, during a closed-doors session, Bungie revealed that this name was made up as a joke, similar to how the Patience and Time was nicknamed "Better Than Yours."
