Riskrunner is an Exotic Submachine Gun.

Perks - Curated Roll


  • Arc conductor icon1.png Arc Conductor - When taking Arc damage, this weapon becomes more powerful and resists incoming Arc damage. Kills extend the time in this overcharged state.

Sight / Barrel

  • Arrowhead brake icon1.png Arrowhead Brake - Lightly vented barrel.
    • Greatly controls Recoil.
    • Increases Handling Speed.

Magazine / Battery

  • Extended mag icon1.png Extended Mag - This weapon has a greatly increased magazine size, but reloads much slower.
    • Greatly increases magazine size.
    • Greatly decreases Reload Speed.

Trait 1

  • Superconductor icon1.png Superconductor - When Arc Conductor is active, shots fired have the chance to become chain lightning and return ammo.

Trait 2

  • Short-action stock icon1.png Short-Action Stock - This weapon is especially easy to grip.
    • Greatly increases Handling Speed.


Riskrunner Catalyst is obtained over the course of the A Spark of Hope quest. To unlock its upgrade, the player has to defeat enemies, and get Superconductor kills.

The Catalyst increases Riskrunner's range by 27 and Masterworks the weapon. Masterworked Riskrunner generates Orbs of Light on multikills and tracks the number of enemies killed with it.


  • Riskrunner was available exclusively for the Warlock class during the Destiny 2 Beta. It is available for all classes in the full release.
  • Prior to New Light, this weapon used to be a reward for the Sacrilege story mission, and its Catalyst used to drop from strike and Nightfall bosses.


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.
