The Breakneck is restricted to the Gambit activity in Destiny 2. So the only way to get it is by playing Gambit. However, there are two ways through which you can get this weapon from this activity.

First of all, you can get it as a random drop for completing the activity, much like most of the weapons in the entire game. Secondly, whenever you complete a Gambit match, you will receive engrams. You can then make your way to the Drifter and focus these engrams on the Breakneck from the focusing menu.

With that said, here are the rolls that you should be looking for.
