Property of Ishtar Collective. WARNING: Gravity propulsor beam can cause serious injury or even death.
― In-game description

Tractor Cannon is an exotic shotgun. It can be dismantled to generate Glimmer, Gunsmith Materials, and Legendary Shards.


This weapon has the following lore associated:

Chioma Esi met Maya in their undergraduate gym. They got into an argument about deadlifting: was it necessary, was it practical, why was Chioma making so much noise? Maya Sundaresh just couldn't stand the notion that some things were done for their own sake, not because they had any use.

Decades later they joined the Ishtar Collective on Venus to study the enigmatic ruins unearthed by the Traveler's terraforming. The first time it happened—Vex code leaping across an airgap, surfing the quantum vacuum from simulation to reality, infecting a utility frame—Chioma pulled an alarm while Maya tried to grab the precious frame with a cargo-grade gravity grapple. She couldn't lift the grapple. Chioma grabbed it, pinned the frame to the wall, and won the argument.


The Tractor Cannon can be obtained from Exotic Engrams, from loot drops in PVE and PVP, and as a vendor reward.
