Polaris Lance Intrinsic Traits

The Perfect Fifth

Precision hits dealt by the Polaris Lance return ammo to its magazine. Landing 4 precision hits will load a delayed Solar explosive round for your next shot.

This will allow you to deal a powerful shot when you continuously get precision hits, allowing you to finish off enemies faster or deal more damage to bosses.

How to Get Polaris Lance Catalyst?


The Polaris Lance Catalyst provides it with the Dragonfly perk once it has been upgraded, which causes precision kills to create an elemental damage explosion.

This is perfect for defeating enemies in rapid succession and with the aid of The Perfect Fifth, you are guaranteed to get easy precision kills.

The Polaris Lance Catalyst can be obtained as a reward when you complete Strikes or participate in Crucible or Gambit matches.

Once you have the Polaris Lance Catalyst, you may unlock it by defeating 500 enemies using the Exotic Scout Rifle and also 50 enemies with the explosive round from The Perfect Fifth.


Since the Polaris Lance can unleash a powerful Solar explosive round, this gives it the ability to easily take enemies out but with the Dragonfly perk, other enemies suffer too.

You can easily take out multiple enemies with the Polaris Lance since the Dragonfly perk also damages nearby enemies.

With the Polaris Lance, you will find yourself annihilating enemies with carefully placed precision hits that lead to explosions.
