How to start Thorn Exotic Hand Cannon quest

The 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:

  1. Echoes of Darkness – Finish the Wretched Eye strike and defeat its boss.
  2. Harvest of the Lesser – Kill several hundred Fallen in the Plaguelands (around 500 should do the job).
  3. 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.
  4. Cleansed by the Light – Use 5 Motes of Light.
  5. 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.
After all is said and done, you’ll end up with a 350 attack hand cannon with great accuracy and range. It also has a hefty magazine. If your aim is good and you want to make your headshots count, this is the weapon for you. And it is the best sounding gun in the game, bar none.
