The Basilisk is a DMR that excels at putting pressure on enemies from a long range, as it has a relatively high fire rate. It is unlocked from Osiris and is an ExoticRarity.svg Exotic weapon.


The Basilisk can have 8 different Attachments installed on it, one for each slot. The type of attachment must be compatible with the weapon's type, so only attachments that have DMR or Heavy Ammo as a category can be installed onto a Basilisk.


A phase tech marksman rifle; considered ahead of its time. The impacts are powerful in its class, and also boasts a high rate of fire.


The result of an offshoot project during early development of the Phasic Lancer, the Basilisk trades higher ammo count for a much stronger energy discharge. While still in the prototyping, Osiris is happy to offer this rifle to Prospectors of a high enough standing.

The Intergalactic Federal Authority considers the Basilisk to be an unnecessarily cruel weapon.
