Sturm is an exotic Hand Cannon in Destiny 2. It's main perks are geared around instantly reloading whatever secondary weapon is equipped after a kill, especially the legendary sidearm Drang, which does the same for Sturm. Therefore, Sturm is the first exotic weapon geared towards synergizing with another weapon.
Sturm is aquired in the Relics of the Golden Age quest. This quest becomes available after completing the Red War campaign and the World Quest on Nessus. However, the quest is currently bugged and Sturm cannot be obtained: the player can no longer keep an Exotic Engram in their inventory and decrypt it at a Cryptarch, which is required to progress forward.
These ancient ceremonial pistols can be dated back to the early Golden Age. A faded inscription reads "To Sigrun, from Victor."
"Please! You don't understand. I'm supposed to be on that ship."
The guard smiled at Sigrun with gentle condescension. "That's not possible, ma'am."
She understood why he would believe that; all of the colonists had entered cryo two weeks ago, but she could see the crew waving for pictures. They were awake! She could be awake, too. "I'm supposed to be on that ship," she insisted, leaning around the guard. There was still time. She could find whatever horrible cryo-coffin they'd loaded Victor into; she could kneel before it and beg him to forgive her. He wouldn't hear her but he wasn't gone yet—
"I need you to take a step back, ma'am."
"Captain Jacobson!" Sigrun darted past the guard. "I'm a colonist! You can't leave without me!"
This hand cannon is best used with the companion sidearm, Drang. When used together, Drang with refill the magazine of Sturm with each kill Drang gets, refilling Sturm's magazine up to the max of 20. This can often be helpful when dealing with large mobs of enemies. With Update 1.2.0, Strum now gains an extra damage round for each Drang kill, making this weapon combo very effective against other players in The Crucible.
