hawkmoon exotic hand cannon

Hawkmoon is a timed PS4 exclusive Exotic Hand Cannon, which will be available for Xbox users Fall 2015. This weapon can be acquired randomly as a reward in PvE or PvP. It is not currently sold by Xûr.

In terms of what one would expect from a Hand Cannon, Hawkmoon is the pinnacle. With its high accuracy, large magazine, and exceptional Impact, the weapon is at the top of its class and overall is above average. All this, combined with the chance of increased bullet damage, makes for a weapon that Hand Cannon players will be happy to use.

For PvP this weapon gets a 8.5/10, and for PvE it gets a 8.8/10

the last word destiny exotic hand cannon

The Last Word is an Exotic Hand Cannon. It can be acquired as a reward in PvE or PvP, or sold by Xûr.

If you enjoy the Crucible, and prefer hand cannons, it doesn’t get much better than this. For 1v1 encounters in close-medium range, it simply dominates! However, if you are looking for a well-rounded weapon as your primary, then this isn’t the weapon for you.

The Last Word is simply outclassed by many other hand canons for PvE, namely HawkmoonFatebringerLord High Fixer and The Devil You Know.

For PvP this weapon earns a 8.9/10 and for PvE a 6.2/10

thorn exotic hand cannon

Thorn is rewarded to you after completing the long quest line, starting with the Exotic Bounty “A Light in the Dark” mission.

After leveling up the weapon you will end up with a very formidable Hand Cannon that rewards a slow, methodical playstyle.

If you have a conservative playstyle then this gun is perfect for you. In PvE it hits pretty hard, and in PvP it’s definitely a force to be reckoned with, provided you have good aim.

The slow reload and magazine size are the main faults with this weapon, which may be a deal breaker for some, but others can play around it. A Hunter with Chains of Woe, or Warlock with Surge can easily fall in love with this gun.

It’s confirmed to be getting a buff (among others) before December 9th, but in its current state, for PvP it earns a 7.5/10 and for PvE a 5/10
