Prometheus Lens Intrinsic Traits

Prismatic Inferno

Fires a Solar trace beam and generates a damaging heat field that grows while the weapon continues to fire.

This allows you to continue dealing increased damage to enemies while also gaining an area-of-effect attack to damage nearby enemies.

More damage is dealt while you continuously fire this weapon and with the Flame Refraction trait, ammo from reserves is added to the magazine when enemies are killed.

How To Get Prometheus Lens Catalyst?

The Prometheus Lens Catalyst, which is simply known as the Prometheus Catalyst, provides the Exotic Trace Rifle with an increase in stability and handling by 18.

This makes it easier to continuously focus the Solar beam on enemies to maximize the amount of damage done and to avoid wasting ammo.

You may obtain the Prometheus Catalyst by completing Strikes on the Heroic or Nightfall difficulty and unlock it by defeating 500 enemies with the Exotic Trace Rifle.


The Prometheus Lens melts through enemies like a laser through butter, melting their health in seconds while also affecting nearby enemies.

It is ideal to keep this weapon firing as long as you can when there are multiple enemies present to make use of the Prismatic Inferno ability, which is great for taking out-groups.

Aiming with the Prometheus Lens becomes easier once you obtain and unlock its catalyst, making the weapon extremely accurate.
