― In-game description

Riskrunner is an exotic submachine gun. It can be dismantled to generate Glimmer, Gunsmith Materials, and Legendary Shards.

LoreEdit

This weapon has the following lore associated:

SYSTEMS CHECKLIST:
Insulated Weapons Frame: CHECK. Insulated Firing System: CHECK. Conductive Prongs: CHECK. Amplification Drivers: CHECK. Arc-core Replication Matrix: CHECK. Arc-core Chargers: CHECK. Feedback Reduction Loop: CHECK.
Direct User Pain Blockers: UNAVAILABLE
Ancillary operations listed under General Systems Review.
NOTE: The user must receive incoming damage to increase outgoing damage. However, the value we predict the user will receive in return for their discomfort far exceeds any momentary pain – assuming, of course, the user survives the attack.
In short: This may hurt. A lot.

SourcesEdit

Riskrunner is available as a reward for completing the Campaign mission Sacrilege. The player is given the choice to obtain Sunshot, Riskrunner or Graviton Lance. The item can also be found in Exotic Engrams and can be purchased from Xur.

As of October 1, players now have the opportunity to obtain this exotic weapon if they complete the exotic quest Pain and Gain, along with the catalyst.
