In Destiny 2: Forsaken, one of the most coveted weapons players want to know how to get is the Luna’s Howl Hand Cannon. To get Luna’s Howl in Destiny 2, players will need to complete a series of tasks in order to prove themselves worthy to Lord Shaxx.

In Destiny 2: Forsaken, you’ll need to complete a series of tasks assigned by Lord Shaxx in order to get Luna’s Howl. To unlock these tasks, you’ll need to visit Shaxx in the Tower and unlock the “Shock and Denial” Pursuit to begin the process of earning Luna’s Howl. There are several steps needed to unlock Luna’s Howl in Destiny 2: Forsaken, all of which we’ve listed below.

  • Finish 10 Competitive matches (loss still counts towards your progress).
  • Complete 3 Rumble matches.
  • Earn 100 Precision Kills using Hand Cannons in Competitive.
  • Kill 150 enemies in the Competitive playlist using Hand Cannons.
  • Get 200 Solar Kills in the Competitive playlist.
  • Reach the “Fabled” rank in the Glory playlist.
  • Return to Shaxx in the Tower to unlock the Luna’s Howl Hand Cannon.

While most of these tasks are straightforward, it can be difficult to rank up to Fabled, with Destiny 2 players having felt this frustration last season while attempting to unlock Redrix’s Claymore. Additionally, it can be hard to earn Precision Kills in Destiny 2 using Hand Cannons, especially if you're not a regular Hand Cannon user.

Our advice is to complete the easiest tasks, such as 3 Rumble matches and 10 Competitive matches, first before attempting some of the harder assignments. Once you’ve completed all of the requirements and have unlocked your Luna’s Howl in Destiny 2, you’ll also have the unique opportunity to purchase a replica through Bungie Rewards.

Whether or not you want to spend money on a 1:4 scale replica of Luna’s Howl is up to you. However, to unlock Luna’s Howl in Destiny 2: Forsaken, simply follow the task list assigned by Shaxx and return to him once it’s completed to receive your shiny new Hand Cannon.
