Lore

Hawkmoon

Stalk thy prey and let loose thy talons upon the Darkness.

What is this feeling?

I did not ask for it. I do not understand it. I do not want it.

The Crow is so carefree in his ignorance. The bonfire's glow lights up his pale features and I am drawn to the hope in his gold eyes. Where is the despairing child I anticipated?

He drinks from an open bottle of wine against the recommendation of his Ghost. The Guardian encourages him and they are laughing. This celebration is maddening; neither have reason to be so jubilant. Their world is ending and they thrash like dying creatures in the final light of collapsing stars. They do not seem to acknowledge the futility of their existence, the impermanence of it in the face of cosmic annihilation.

Now the Guardian is drinking, standing close to the fire. Their Ghost, too, encourages them not to partake. They poison themselves for the enjoyment of it.

I am reminded of my sisters. Of moments spent by lapping shores, gazing up at infinite stars full of possibilities and wonder. I am left yearning.

What is this feeling?

I do not understand it. I do not want it.

They are celebrating their victory over the Taken. The Crow is making a gun shape with his hand, swinging the nearly empty bottle of wine around in the other like a Sword. The Guardian looks pensive, sitting on a rock by the fire, contemplating the secret they are keeping. The Crow notices, but tries not to show it. He wants the Guardian's spirits to be lifted. He wants to be supportive, so that they may share in their triumphs together.

As equals.

I am reminded of my home. I am reminded of the warmth of the sun and the embrace of my family. I am reminded of my father's face. I am reminded of everyone I betrayed. All the blood spilled in the name of immortality. The warmth of the sun burns me with its memory.

What is this feeling?

I do not want it.

The fire has nearly died. The Crow fell over and cannot stand, though he insists he is fine. The Guardian is turning the embers with the tip of their Sword. The Ghosts are talking to one another in quiet conspiracy. The celebration has ended, but I can sense their emotions are mixed: complex and myriad things, when a simple, singular focus would suffice.

There is a growing kinship here. Against better judgment.

What is this feeling?

Good if you can land consistent headshots, bad if your aim is like mine... :(

Hawkmoon was the very first exotic I got in Destiny 1, and also my favorite, as such I was incredibly worried about Hawkmoon in D2. I can safely assure you, give yourself time with this weapon and you'll fall in love with it. Incredible stats, random rolled perks, great PVE dps and incredible PVP performance. This gun is a monster, and it will only get better.

Does 426 dmg to the head with max buff. Its nasty. Even without the buff its one of the best HCs. Its so smooth and snappy.

Oh god

Paracausal Shot x7 with 93 aim assist and opening shot

dire promise 2
3
Very smooth to use in pvp, and super fun in pve. It's surprising to me that people dont like the random rolls idea with the Transformative perk because its a weapon you can focus more toward one or the other (pve or pvp). The base stats as is when you first get it, along with the intrinsic perk, just by themselves, gives it an easy 4/5 score for both pve and pvp. It's not one to sleep on. also an easy 4/5 in Gambit too
2
It's basically a "closing shot" if there ever was one. There aren't many places where you'd need the extra range from Ace without also being in sniper rifle territory. I do wish that Transformative was an additional perk, because right now Hawkmoon is just a legendary hand cannon without a mod slot that can rarely one shot people. PvE wise, if you hit all 8 shots into a powerful enemy, its passable for some dps if you want to save special ammo.
2
Not sure why so many people are hating on this hand cannon. It's got amazing stats and an excellent damage perk for both PVE and PVP. It's probably one of the most skill-oriented weapons to use given the nature of its exotic perk.

Hammer forged rifling, rangefinder, and polymer grip will most likely be the god roll. Near max range and good handling + stability.
2
Y'all used this weapon in one pvp game and gave it a 3. I've been using it non stop since it came out and it's amazing. Don't go for 1 shots. Go for 2 shots. This is the most consistent hand cannon in the game. Definitely better then you guys are giving it credit for. It's easy to hit headshots and very rewarding when you do. CammyCakes made a really good video about it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4hY1h2UOSPY .
1
Very interesting. The random perks are definitely mostly suited for PvP, but the exotic perk does suffice for PvE needs, and feels just right.
1
Really cool, but I feel like the low mag really hurts it
1
Oh man, man oh man.... I was lucky enough to score myself a Hawkmoon with Corkscrew + Rangefinder + Textured grip and does absolute wonders in the Crucible. Combine that with the Masterwork that adds Range to every Paracausal shot you have, and now you have a gun that can very much crossmap without much difficulty. 11/10, will probably use it every other round outside of AoS
1
I got a opening shot roll and a rangefinder roll. I'll be running rangefinder in PVP and I expect good things.
0
gonna be nuts once we get actual perks on it, but, pve-wise, it kinda slaps. it rivals outbreak in kinetic dps and can 2 phase taniks. PvP rolls w sth like hammer forged, rangefinder or opening shot, plus smooth grip would be sweet, but for pve, maybe fluted, plus KW or surplus, and combat grip. def a good exotic
0
Def a top tier PVP option especially if you're good at clicking heads the number of ohks per game is absurd but balanced...
0
isn't this thing supposed to have 13 rounds? Or am I just stupid? EIther way its awesome tho
0
Just an amazing HC. In both pve and pvp, and great that you can actually grind for The One that suits exactly your demands and playstyle .
0
Random rolls will be farmable by running a variation of the same mission you got the gun from with champs. Honestly this gun feels crispy, outside of the mediocre range stat it's a pretty solid gun. Can one shot in pvp but can also do some damage on pve, fun if you're just doing bounties or strikes. Rangefinder is going to be your friend on any platform to compete with ace.
0
PvP: Aim assist 93.

PvE: Surprisingly Good, DPS can acctualy beat some pretty decent exotics and legendaries
0
Its really good and it can chunk bosses so well. Im not good with hand cannons in pop tho
0
Amazing in pie can absolutely tank possess
0
Honestly the best hand cannon I’ve used as a console player. At first I was calling the gun “the best legendary hand cannon in the game” because it’s introduction was lack luster to say the least. But once I got my two god rolls (one pve and pvp) and the catalyst, the gun became a beast. My rolls for pve are full bore, surplus, and smooth grip. And my pvp roll is polygonal, opening shot, heavy grip.
0
We need stats for pve not just pvp. Seems like the popular rolls are more toward pvp. I think Surplus is a great pve perk imo.
0
The reason why a lot of youtubers are hating the gun for the pvp aspect is cause they are trying to force the stacks for paracausal shot in game it naturally just comes the overall feel of the gun is smooth it feels nice the you don't need much skill to use the gun because it's so good but it's good for the players who are skilled cause of them being able to get the Stacks much easier for the pvp side if its a stationary boss it does above 95k w div and well
0
pretty hecking good! wow it's yeah it does a lot of damage
0
high skill ceiling in pvp, great dps for a primary in pve
