Year 3 Thorn is an exotic weapon in Destiny: Rise of Iron. It’s the new version of the popular Thorn hand cannon, with more damage and all around better stats. You’ll have to finish a quest chain if you want to obtain it, and it won’t be easy. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to get Thorn exotic hand cannon in Destiny Rise of Iron, its stats and what it looks like.
How to start Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon questThe hardest part of this quest is starting it. In order to get it, you’ll need to turn in bounties and hope for the best. Once the universe smiles at you, you’ll get the Thorn Exotic Bounty. Just keep doing bounties until it shows up – some people recommend Iron Lord bounties from Shiro-4, but anything works. The fun part starts after you get it. Here are the steps:
- Echoes of Darkness – Finish the Wretched Eye strike and defeat its boss.
- Harvest of the Lesser – Kill several hundred Fallen in the Plaguelands (around 500 should do the job).
- Feast Upon the Light – Score between 100 and 150 Crucible kills with a Void weapon. Any kills that happen in private matches won’t happen, so as to discourage cheating.
- Cleansed by the Light – Use 5 Motes of Light.
- Where it Began – Play through the Abomination Heist strike and open the hoard at the end using a Skeleton Key. If you haven’t got any, you can obtain one during the None are Perfect quest. Or you could play strikes until it drops.
