  • Upon completion of The Duviri Paradox and Angels of the Zariman, and unlocking The Steel Path, players can earn DreadIncarnonGenesis from The Circuit's Steel Path to place on their Dread with the help of Cavalero in the Chrysalith. This Incarnon Genesis form grants it evolutions to a transformation and newfound strength.


  • Installing the Dread Incarnon Genesis requires 20 PathosClamps, 60 RuneMarrow and 60 TasomaExtract.
  • When installed, the first Evolution tier is unlocked. The following Evolution tiers, their requirements for unlocking them, and their related perks, are shown below;
    • Each challenge additionally grants 5,000 affinity to the weapon, affected by Affinity Boosters.

Evolution I[]

  • Headshots charge Incarnon Transmutation; Alt Fire transmutes. Switching back will expend any remaining charges.
  • Sacrifice silence for increased projectile size and Heat Damage.
    • Incarnon Form fires a wide projectile that deals Heat damage, with increased base damage, Critical Multiplier, and Status Chance, and infinite body Punch Through. However, it no longer deals Puncture damage, has a headshot multiplier of 1x, has slightly slower charge time, can no longer be fired from a partial charge, and is no longer silent.
  • Mode switching is not instantaneous and has an animation equal to the weapon's reload speed.
  • Incarnon Form is activated by filling the Incarnon Transmutation gauge that appears under the reticule by achieving headshots and then pressing the Alternate Fire button. 4 headshots will completely fill the gauge. A full gauge is not required to activate Incarnon Form.
    • Charges generate only on headshots, and not other weakspots, such as the backpacks of most MOA variants. Similarly, shooting weakspots generated by either Sonar or DetectVulnerability in places other than heads will have no effect either.
    • Headshots on corpses do not build charges.
    • Individual Multishot bullets can build charges.
  • Instead of drawing ammunition from its reserves, the Dread's Incarnon Form uses a separate "magazine" with each charge producing 5 rounds to a maximum of 20. Once all ammunition is expended, the Dread reverts to its normal form.
    • Incarnon Form's magazine is not affected by mods.
    • Incarnon Form is not affected by Ammo Efficiency (such as EnergizedMunitions).
    • Charges and Incarnon Form persists through all activities, such as holstering, bleedout, or being disarmed. However, charges and Incarnon Form are removed upon death.

Evolution II[]

  • Unlock Challenge: Complete a solo mission with this weapon equipped.
  • Perk 1: Hitman's Opportunity:
    • Increase Damage by +70.
    • Increase Damage by +100% if enemy has less than half Health.
  • Perk 2: Stalker's Resentment:
    • Increase Damage by +50.
    • With Hate and Despair Equipped: Hits increase damage by +10, stacks up to 5x. Resets on missed shot.
      • Affects both regular and Incarnon forms.

  • Perk 1: Swift Deliverance:
    • +30% Projectile Speed

    • Increase Status Chance by +24%.
  • Perk 3: Zeroed In:
    • Increase Critical Damage Multiplier by +1x

Known Bugs[]

  • Evolution II: Hitman's Opportunity follows the same bugs as and stacks additively with GalvanizedAptitude with its bonus on enemies with less than half health.
    • The bonus scales off of the quick shot damage on the untransformed form, regardless of the charge.
    • The bonus stacks multiplicatively with damage mods such as Serration on the Incarnon form.
