Service history
 
"Guardians never die. But we don't forget those who do."
— Lord Shaxx

Luna's Howl is a Legendary Solar Hand cannon that can be earned in Forsaken through a Crucible pinnacle quest.

Lore[edit]

Josef opened the door. Shaxx filled the hallway beyond.
"You look like hell," said the Crucible Handler.
Josef scoffed. "Get out of here. I have Hive to hunt. No time for the Crucible today."
"Hive. You lost her on the Moon?"
Josef said nothing.
"You aren't the only Guardian to leave loved ones behind on that rock." Shaxx held out a long, lacquered box. "The Gunsmith asked me to deliver this personally."
"What's Banshee thinking? I can't afford this."
"I took care of it. Scavenged parts from my personal collection."
Josef considered it a moment.
"It's a good gun."
"She was a good wolf. This isn't a replacement. But it will help you finish your business with the Hive. Then I expect to see you back in the Crucible. We could use the inspiration."

Gameplay[edit]

Luna's Howl is one of the two Crucible pinnacle weapons of the Forsaken expansion, and as such, takes dedication to obtain. It is in the Precision hand cannon archetype, but unlike other hand cannons in the archetype, it has a noticeably faster time to kill in Crucible. While it does not have the utility of Ace of Spades or its range, it is able to fell a Guardian in 0.67 seconds versus the 1 second time to kill that other Precision hand cannons have, provided you land all of your headshots. The gun has almost no recoil by virtue of its perks and its stability masterwork, but is lacking in range compared to its sibling pinnacle weapon, Not Forgotten, and it is recommended to pair Luna's Howl with a long range weapon such as a sniper rifle.

Perks[edit]

  • Precision Frame: Recoil pattern on this weapon is more predictably vertical. Fires quickly with high accuracy.
  • Polygonal Rifling Barrel optimized for recoil reduction. Increases stability.
  • Drop Mag Magazine drops on reload, wasting ammunition but greatly increasing reload speed.
  • Zen Moment Causing damage with this weapon increases its stability.
  • Magnificent Howl: Rapidly landing two precision shots grants a short period of bonus damage until your next kill or miss.
