The quest to acquire the Exotic hand cannon Hawkmoon arrived with Destiny 2’s Tuesday update, and it’s a very interesting new piece of hardware. A first for Destiny’s Exotics, Hawkmoon will get random rolls after the player acquires their first one from the quest. This includes a random barrel, a random grip, and yes, even a random perk.
Transformative–the perk Hawkmoon comes with after completing the quest–will become one of nine different perks already seen on other hand cannons in Destiny 2, everything from Snapshot Sights to the new Surplus. But that only happens after you find a brand new Hawkmoon somewhere out in the wild.
At first, I figured that Hawkmoon would just get added to the world loot pool so the next Exotic Engram you come across could contain an even better Hawkmoon, but it turns out that there may be a much easier method to farm your ideal Hawkmoon roll.
Cheese Forever, the Destiny 2 YouTuber known for discovering tons of busted game-breaking glitches, seems to have also discovered a brand new mission that will arrive sometime in the future. It will be sort of like Whisper of the Worm in that you can select the mission from orbit and complete it for a specific reward.
Unlike Whisper of the Worm, Hawkmoon’s mission will have a rotating burn and champion-class enemies, so this won’t be a walk in the park. It currently has the same name as the mission you complete in the Exotic quest for Hawkmoon, so most likely it’s the same mission, only harder.
You can find the mission hidden in the directory for the EDZ, but it can’t be launched yet. We don’t know when it might become available to launch, and Bungie hasn’t commented yet either. Stay tuned for more info on this one.
Yesterday’s patch also brought several much-needed bug fixes, a next-gen update for PS5 and Xbox Series X owners, and changes to the Destiny Companion App that lets players get bounties outside of the game. There are also big plans for 2021 starting with new strikes and loot in Season 13, as well as crossplay sometime next year.
