How to get the Eleatic Principle (Legendary Machine Gun) in Destiny 2

The Eleatic Principle is an Arc Machine Gun added to Destiny 2 as part of Season of the Witch. This is a rapid-fire machine gun and great for Arc builds. Today I am going to take a closer look at the weapon, the stats, perks, god rolls, plus how to get the Eleatic Principle in Destiny 2.

How to get Eleatic Principle

To get this one you have to run the seasonal activities called Savathun’s Spire or Altars of Summoning, complete these and you’ll get a random weapon drop which can be Eleatic Principle. You can also focus engrams in the H.E.L.M. at the Ritual Table. You can also craft the weapon by getting 5 red borders of the weapon and levelling them up and extracting the Deepsight. Do this you’ll get the pattern and then you can go to the enclave on Savathun’s Throne World and craft Eleatic Principle.

Eleatic Principle

Eleatic Principle is a Legendary Power Machine Gun with a rapid-Fire Frame meaning deeper ammo reserves. Slightly faster reload when magazine is empty. Looking at the stats we have Impact 25, Range 26, Stability 34, Handling 50, Reload Speed 64, Airborne Effectiveness 19, Rounds Per Minute 900, Magazine 75.

The origin trait here is Head Rush, this is where standing up after crouching for a short time grants this weapon a brief period of improved handling and reload speed.
