From Destinypedia, the Destiny wiki
- "They say Hand Cannons have long been used for personal defense, even before the days of the City. Nothin' defensive about'em. When a Cannon speaks, people listen."
- — Cayde-6
Hand Cannons are a type of heavy pistol used in Destiny. They reward calm technique and sharp shooting. In addition, their abnormally high impact provides them unparalleled stopping power, making them capable of staggering or killing most low-level enemies in two shots.

- Some hand cannons like The Devil You Know and Luna's Howl have their bullet measurements printed on the side of the barrel.
- Both of these hand cannons fire .44 Calibre round payloads.
