Hawkmoon God Roll – Destiny 2

Obtaining the Hawkmoon god roll of your choice will take some time in Destiny 2, but will be worth it.

Exotic weapons typically only have one set of perks that can ever be acquired. Bungie has changed things up with this Hand Cannon, though. Here are the perks that you should be hunting for in search of the Hawkmoon god roll in Destiny 2.

Hawkmoon God Roll

One of the most popular Exotic weapons made its way into Destiny 2 with a bonus. Exotic weapons are unique as they usually come with one set of perks and a special perk called an Intrinsic Trait. Bungie has decided this time around that the Exotic Hand Cannon, Hawkmoon, is going to be different. Players can finally grind through the Hawkmoon mission twice a week on each character to earn a random roll for the fabled Hand Cannon.

Perk Slot 1

The first perk will focus on barrels that will increase or decrease your Range, Stability, Handling, or Recoil. Any of these barrels will be great to have in the first perk slot.

  • Hammer-Forged Rifling: +10 Range
  • Fluted Barrel: +5 Stability and +15 Handling
  • Smallbore: +7 Range and +7 Stability
  • Corkscrew Rifling: +5 Range, +5 Stability, and +5 Handling

Perk Slot 2

It looks like only one perk will be available for the Hawkmoon in this slot. The perk is listed below and will help reload faster.

  • Alloy Magazine: Faster reloads when the Magazine is empty

Perk Slot 3

With loads of perks to want in the third slot, Opening Shot stands along as it will activate the catalyst with a precision hit.

  • Opening Shot: Improved accuracy and range on the opening shot of attack

Perk Slot 4

The last perk slot has three different grips to look out for that make up the god roll.

  • Smooth Grip: +5 Stability and +5 Handling
  • Polymer Grip: +10 Handling
  • Combat Grip: +20 Recoil

When you combine any set of the perks above with the Hawkmoon Catalyst, you have a powerful and unique Exotic Hand Cannon. Here is hoping that Bungie continues to allow certain Exotic weapons to be farmed to have unique perks. Check out our Destiny 2 archives for all guides and news.
