Rise of Iron Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon Guide

Our Rise of Iron Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon guide details everything you need to know to get the Exotic Hand Cannon in the game.

Before diving into the quest walkthrough, do note that getting the bounty to drop can take some serious amount of time. However, if you turn in a lot of Bounties at the same time, you should be able to drastically increase your chances of getting it.

Therefore, try and complete a lot of Bounties, but only turn them when you have a lot – and not one by one.

A Light in the Dark Walkthrough

The first thing that you need to do in order to get Rise of Iron Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon is to complete The Wretched Eye strike. This is a relatively easy strike and should not take you long.

Once done, you will need to eliminate a total of 500 Fallen enemies in The Plaguelands. This is another thing which is not exceedingly hard to complete – just grab your best weapon and get to work.

From there, jump directly into Crucible and score 125 eliminations using Void Abilities or Void Weapons – whatever is preferable and more convenient. This can take longer depending on your skill, but you need to make sure that you are dealing a decent amount of damage to proceed.

Once you are done with Crucible, consume a total of 5 Motes of Light in order to cleanse the weapon of darkness. After you have cleansed the weapon of darkness, complete the Abomination Heist strike, open up the chest at the end using a Skeleton Key, and grab the shiny new Rise of Iron Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon.
