Key Takeaways

  • Thorn is a really good PvP Hand Cannon.
  • You can get it from Monument to Lost Lights.
  • This weapon has three cool ornaments to obtain.

Exotic guns are always in demand in Destiny 2, and Hand Cannons have always been hugely popular. Surprisingly, there are not many PvP weapons for this type of gun, but Thorn began to stand out significantly among them all with the release of Season of the Wish. We decided that now is the best time to find out how to get Thorn and whether it’s worth your time. Let us begin!

Should I Get the Thorn Hand Cannon in Destiny 2?

Thorn Destiny 2

Since the very first game, the Destiny 2 Thorn has always been Guardians’ favorite in any PvP content, at least until Beyond Light’s release. After the 150 RPM Hand Cannons were removed from the game, Thorn began to lag behind its counterparts, such as Ace of Spades or Hawkmoon. And now, after three years of waiting, it has received a Catalyst that fixes all its shortcomings, but let’s go in order.

Unlike other weapons of Sorrow, Thorn in Destiny 2 can increase Poison damage thanks to its Exotic Perks. Due to the Mark of the Devourer, Final Blows from this gun will create Remnants, picking up which significantly improves poison damage (and also refills four ammo in your magazine with the possibility of overflowing it). Thus, enemy Guardians will need at least 60 Resilience to survive two Crit, one Body shot without enhanced, or two Crit shots with enhanced Poison.

Its brand-new Catalyst uniquely refreshes the gun, making it an even more priority PvP Hand Cannon. As soon as you learn how to get the Thorn catalyst in Destiny 2 and obtain it, your gun will gain +20 Range with +10 Stability, which is very cool for this type of weapon. Moreover, the gun will acquire a new perk, which will improve Range with Handling and also your character’s Mobility if you make kills from it or consume a Remnant. In general, it’s no wonder why fans are much more excited about this improvement than what Monte Carlo received.

We have already praised Thorn in Crucible many times but never talked about PvE. The thing is, it significantly requires catching up in effectiveness behind the same Wish Ender or Quicksilver Storm in Destiny 2. Undoubtedly, you will be able to enjoy this Hand Cannon even in endgame PvE activities, but it has always explicitly been a PvP weapon. If you want to find a good PvE Hand Cannon, it’s better to use Sunshot, which is one of the best weapons for ad-clear.

You must have the Forsaken Pack DLC to obtain Thorn, which immediately gives you Three Forsaken Ciphers. With them, you have the ability to instantly acquire Forsaken Exotics from the Monument to Lost Lights, including Thorn Hand Cannon. But if you’ve already spent all Ciphers on other weapons, then you’ll need 150,000 Glimmer, one Ascendant Shard, and one Exotic Cipher. The last two materials can be easily obtained from GM Nightfall and completing the Xur Exotic Cipher Quest.

Every Thorn Ornament in Destiny

Did you know that your Thorn can be made much more beautiful? To do this, you must purchase one of three ornaments: Wishes of Sorrow, For the King, and Heretic Robe. Every Destiny 2 Thorn ornament may appear periodically in Eververse for 1250 Bright Dust, or you can’t wait to purchase them immediately for 700 Silver. You can take a look at them below:
