TriviaEdit

  • The "No Backpack" effect causes this weapon to have no reserve ammunition. Instead the weapon automatically generates one bullet directly to the magazine every 7 seconds until it reaches the 6-round cap.[1] When the weapon is first equipped, it will have full ammunition and once a shot is fired, it will begin ammo regeneration.
  • Ice Breaker can regenerate ammo for other special weapons by equipping Ice Breaker, allowing it to regenerate some ammo, and then equipping a different special weapon. However, with Destiny's April Update of 2016, Ice Breaker's ammo regeneration can not be exploited in PVP due to special reserves being depleted on weapon change.
