Destiny 2 Hawkmoon Exotic Guide: Everything We Know About The Beyond Light Hand Cannon So Far

More updates to come as we find out how to get our hands on it!

Destiny 2's Beyond Light expansion is finally here, but Bungie is continuing to roll out content for the loot-shooter.

One of the most exciting upcoming additions is the reintroduction of Hawkmoon, an Exotic Hand Cannon that was once a PS4 exclusive during the first game's timeline.

Here's why it's worth getting, and we'll be adding a full guide on how to grab it, too. 

Destiny 2 Hawkmoon Guide

Compared to a weapon like Cloudstrike that offers an actual lightning storm, Hawkmoon's exotic perk may sound a little more pedestrian.

Thanks to "Luck In The Chamber", one random bullet in the magazine does extra damage.

The "Holding Aces" perk allowed an extra two random bullets to do the same, meaning your magazine size of 13 could clear out more enemies than you'd perhaps expect.

From experience, the gun was impressively powerful in PvP content.

Beyond Light brings in sizeable changes to Hand Cannons.

According to a Bungie blog post:

"Hand Cannons: We're making changes to give hand cannon subfamilies more diversity, and more reasons to use each."

Hawkmoon falls into the "Aggressive" category.

Increased RoF from 110 to 120. 
Broke out Aggressive Hand Cannons, allowing custom tuning of stats (e.g. damage falloff for 100 range in this subfamily now starts at 32m)."

Destiny 2 Beyond Light: How To Get Hawkmoon

We don't yet know how to get Hawkmoon, but it does sound as though it'll be an exotic questline as opposed to being doled out as a random reward for high-level content. 

We'll update this page with the quest steps as soon as we find out what they are.
