The Scarab is a burst pistol that excels at close to medium range encounters. It is unlocked through Osiris logo colored.pngOsiris and is an UncommonRarity.svgUncommon item.


The Scarab can have 5 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 Pistol or Light Ammo as a category can be installed onto a Scarab.


A dependable pistol, fires in controlled and powerful three-shot bursts.


The Scarab, an Adaptive Phase Pistol, is one of Osiris logo colored.pngOsiris' most successful weapons, able to induce a localized rapid matter state change on remote targets at a fraction of the energy cost of more conventional laser-based weaponry. With energy efficiency and safety in mind, the Scarab is a solid choice of sidearm, though its compact form limits the extent of its lethality.

Mk.II Variant

An improved version of the standard Scarab Adaptive Phase Pistol, custom built for the Osiris Harbinger Expeditionary Corps. A rare find, worth keeping hold of.

The Mk.II variant of the Scarab has the following changed statistics:

The Mk.II version of the Scarab can only be found as loot on Fortuna III, which means it can't be crafted or bought in Prospect Station.
