This weapon will be leaving the Trials weekly rotation after the weekend of August 4, 2023, and its Adept version will no longer be obtainable. Its standard version will remain available in the Trials loot pool until the end of Season of the Deep. At that point, the only way to obtain the standard version Unwavering Duty will be through the Legacy Focusing tab at Saint-14. It is unknown if it will ever return to the weekly rotation, but other weapons have returned in the past.

Hand Cannons are a niche choice for PvE in Season of the Deep. They do decent damage but have smaller magazine sizes, making them less effective as a primary weapon than submachine guns or auto rifles. That being said, they do have their uses and are often selected by Bungie to be Anti-Champion weapons during various Seasons.

Barrel options on cannons in PvE are not as important as the other columns. Anything that improves stability or range is a great option. Because Hand Cannons tend to have smaller magazine sizes, reloading is inevitable in most engagements. Alloy Magazine helps us in those situations when a quick reload is absolutely necessary. Any masterwork will do, with Range being the best in slot option.

For our primary perk columns, we actually have a few options. Outlaw and Killing Wind are great options for Column 3. In Column 4 though is where the choices really come into play. Rampage, Multi-Kill Clip, and Frenzy are great damage boosting options. If you are doing a Void Build, Repulsor Brace is a nice option as well.

Other great Hand Cannons to substitute for this weapon in PvE include:

Column 4 TraitEye of the Storm

Hand Cannons really shine in PvP as they are the ultimate dueling weapons. With decent range and accuracy, while still packing a punch, these weapons are PvP mains favorites. While META’s tend to shift and change often in Destiny’s PvP sandbox, Hand Cannons of all Frames always find a way to compete.

For our barrel and magazine options we want to maximize our range. Hammer-Forged Rifling and Smallbore do this with no negatives, and Accurized Rounds for our magazine is always the best choice.

Exalted Truths can roll with absolutely amazing of Rangefinder and Eye of the Storm. These two perks together just make this hand cannon the perfect dueling weapon. That being said Rangefinder is going to get a significant nerf in Season 22, so Killing Wind becomes the best choice then. Multi-Kill Clip can also allow for two shot kills, but is difficult to proc and more difficult to keep up.

Other great Hand Cannons to substitute for this weapon in PvP include:

  • Austringer, from Season of the Haunted
  • Eyasluna, from the Grasp of Avarice Dungeon
  • Fatebringer, from the Vault of Glass Raid
