Destiny 2: How to Get the Luna's Howl Hand Cannon

Destiny 2 offers players a wide variety of weaponry to choose from. Whether it is the Lord of Wolves shotgun or the Chaperone, some of these weapons are harder to obtain than others. For those wanting to get their hands on the Luna's Howl Hand Cannon, there's a number of steps to follow, which can be seen below.

Before looking over the tedious steps required to get this weapon, here are its statistics: Precision Hand Cannon, 180 RPM - 78 Impact, 57 Crit - 39 Body, 1s Optimal TtK (2C2B or 3C1B), 1.67s Base TtK (6B) - 6 Resilience, and 1.33s Average TtK (1C4B or 5B). This Destiny 2 Hand Cannon also comes with the following perks: Drop Mag (very fast reload, loses ammo in the mag), Zen Moment (dealing damage increases stability), and Magnificent Howl (rapidly landing 2 -precision shots in a short period grants bonus damage). For those wanting to check it out in action, we recommend this video:

To begin, the first quest is obtained from Crucible overseer Shaxx and is entitled Shock and Denial. This quest will require Destiny 2 players to complete 10 Crucible matches in the competitive playlist. After completing it, the next quest is known as Pain and Guilt which requires guardians to defeat 150 opponents with hand cannons during competitive Crucible matches.

Continuing this grind leads to the next quest, Anger and Bargaining, which requires Solar final blows in competitive Crucible games. Up next is Depression and Loneliness where players will need to complete Crucible matches in the Rumble Playlist, and then The Upward Turn which necessitates 200 precision final blows from hand cannons during competitive Crucible matches.


The final two quests are known as Reconstruction and Acceptance. The first requires players to reach the Glory rank "fabled," and the second simply requires players to return to Lord Shaxx in the tower. For those wondering, this quest plays out in a similar manner to the quest for Redrix’s Claymore but with added steps. While Acceptance will land players the Luna's Howl Hand Cannon, it also begins another quest entitled Keepsake.

This quest is much shorter in terms of parts, as it is composed of three steps: Hope, Always Faithful, and Not Forgotten. The first requires players to master Luna's Howl by using it to defeat opponents in competitive matches, the second has players reach the Glory Rank "legend," and the final is to simply return to Lord Shaxx. Completing these three parts will presumably unlock the ornament.

All-in-all, this appears to be another weapon worth grinding for, but Forsaken also offers players a number of other golden opportunities. However, some of those may require players to hit level 50 and/or increase their power level. For those players, here’s a guide on pushing that power level over 500.

Destiny 2: Forsaken is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
