ATS/8 ARACHNID is an Exotic Hunter helmet designed for Gunslingers. Its main talent, Arachnid Sensorium, gives the Golden Gun a moderate zoom. When paired with Gunslinger talents Over the Horizon and Deadeye, Gunslingers are easily able to hit very distant targets.
ATS/8 ARACHNID is often considered the worst Hunter Exotic, as its main talent is considered underwhelming.
ATS/8 ARACHNID was first featured prominently in a promotional trailer for The Dark Below.
