The Hawkmoon is one of the most powerful and desired weapons in Destiny 2: Beyond Light. So we have a full guide on how you can obtain the Hawkmoon to make it yours.

Despite being announced early on in Beyond Light’s lifecycle, the Hawkmoon actually took quite a while to turn up. But the powerful weapon is very much in the game and it’s well-worth earning.

To do this, you’ll have to go through many steps to get there. But if you are able to succeed in your mission to obtain it, you’ll be rewarded with an excellent Exotic Handcannon at the end of it.

Hawkmoon Exotic Handcannon

Originally appearing as an option in the first Destiny, the Hawkmoon was a popular handcannon and fans have been asking Bungie to bring it back in Destiny 2.

Well, those prayers have been answered as it is now in Beyond Light, although you will need the Season Pass to access it.

Here’s the long road to get the Hawkmoon.

As The Crow Flies mission

Your first goal is to trigger the “As The Crow Flies” quest. To do this, you must have a conversation with Spider, and this means traveling to Tangled Shore and accepting the quest.

Finding the five feathers

The quest simply starts off by having you collect feathers. These are special paracausal feathers that light up with a yellow glow. Now for their locations.

Feather One

An easy one to start, simply head outside of Spider’s Lair and it should be sitting on a container near the exit. Collect it and return it to Spider.

Feather Two

Now it’s time to explore as you’ll need to go to the EDZ and make your way to The Sludge spawn. There is a building that gives a perfect vantage point of the entrance to the Hallowed Grove Lost Sector, head up there and you’ll find the feather resting on the ground.

Feather Three

Again, you need to travel but this time to the Cosmodrome. You’ll need to access it from The Steppes landing area. As soon as you’ve arrived here, turn around to look at a solid, concrete pillar. The feather is actually just at the top of the pillar. Simply climb up and number three is now yours.

Feather Four

For this one, you’ll need to make your way to the entrance of the Blind Well, accessed via the Dreaming City. Once you see the big gates, head to the left side of them and you’ll see the feather lying on a wall. Take it. One to go.

Feather Five

Naturally, they save the most difficult for last. For the final feather, you’ll need to make your way to the Shrine of Oryx. Go to the spawn point where you find Eris Morn. Keep going through the Moon Tunnels and arrive at the Shrine. make your way to the other side of the room and our final feather is by the stairs.

Head back to Spider’s place

Now that you’re back where it all started, take the feathers and talk with the Crow. He will now give you your next task, completing the Let Loose Thy Talons Quest.

Completing Let Loose Thy Talons & Cry From Beyond

In order to complete your main mission, you’ll also need to complete a little side mission called Cry From Beyond located in the EDZ. It’s a fairly simple quest that results in you getting part of the Hawkmoon.

Once the mission is done, head back to the Crow, talk to him, and he’ll set you on your way to the next step.

50 Orbs of Power

With the Hawkmoon effigy now in your possession, it needs power. So Crow tasks you with accumulating 50 orbs. To do this you’ll need to use Masterwork weapons and head to a good Lost Sector packed with enemies you can easily demolish. You need 50 points in total (1 point per orb) and you get one for getting a double kill with a Masterworked weapon, and another for picking up the orb you’ve created as a result.

Talk to Crow again

Return to him after you’ve successfully completed the orb task and he’ll give you yet-another objective.

EDZ & Crow

Now it’s time for the Crow to take you on a tour of his home, during which you’ll be collecting more feathers. Don’t worry though as these aren’t hidden and are basically gift-wrapped for you to claim. Keep going and defeat the boss at the end of your adventure, then speak to Crow again.

Defeat Champions or Guardians

Comfortably the most time-consuming and difficult task of them all. It’s entirely up to you which route you choose to go down, but in any event, one of them will need to be done. Once you’ve killed a certain amount of these and fulfilled the requirements, it’s now time to retrieve your prize…kind of.

Finishing the Hawkmoon

Once more, head to The Sludge in the EDZ and you’ll need to do a couple of small tasks and collect some more feathers. When that’s done, you will have one final boss to vanquish. Do that and the Hawkmoon will finally be yours to keep forever.

As we said, it’s not the easiest Exotic Weapon in the world to acquire, but it’s a rare Exotic for a reason. Follow our guide, have some patience, and the Hawkmoon handcannon will be yours.

Competitive Destiny game could be in development with Bungie job listing

A Bungie job posting strongly points toward a new competitive game set within the Destiny universe being in development.

Destiny 2 players in Crucible

According to a job listing from July 2022, Bungie are developing an “exciting new title” in the Destiny universe with competitive elements.

Destiny 2 is currently in its 17th season and is showing no sign of slowing down, with rumors claiming a Destiny mobile game is in development and a job listing pointing towards a competitive title being in development.

Destiny devs Bungie are certainly no stranger to developing games that competitive players love, with the original Halo trilogy having a booming esports scene. Now, this job listing appears to confirm that Bungie are developing a brand-new competitive game set in the Destiny universe.

Bungie’s job posting reveals they are looking for a Senior Concept Artist to work on an “exciting new title” where the dev will need to work on “guns, characters, armors, vehicles, environments, and other seasonal art needs.”

The job posting is rather vague when describing the game, but there are a couple of bullet points that give us a strong indication.

The listing appears to confirm that it’s associated with Destiny, where the Concept Artist will need to “Continually push aesthetics of the Destiny universe.”

There’s no guarantee that it’s a competitive-focused game but it should have at least a competitive element where “Experience with and love of competitive games” is listed as a “nice-to-have skill.”

Glaive in Destiny 2 The Witch Queen

Aside from these snippets of information, what the game’s about is anyone’s guess. It’s possible that it’ll be a standalone version of the Crucible mode, but with it being a “new title” it’s unlikely.

The job listing also doesn’t clarify if this is the leaked mobile title or something completely different, but don’t expect it anytime soon if they’re still hiring senior developers.

Is Destiny getting a mobile game?

The Chinese company NetEase has previously worked on mobile titles like Diablo Immortal, and The Game Post claims that it is currently hiring staff to work on an “unannounced FPS mobile game.”

According to The Game Post, this information came from a “source with knowledge of NetEase’s development plans” and Bungie are said to be collaborating with the Chinese conglomerate for this project.

Bungie has allegedly been working on a new Destiny game for “over two years now” so they might be bringing a mobile port similar to Apex Legends mobile or the upcoming Warzone Mobile. However, it’s possible that they could be developing an entirely new IP altogether.

Is there a Destiny Mobile release date?

At the time of writing, no release date has been confirmed for this mobile game. However, it’s been 5 years since Destiny 2 first arrived, so it wouldn’t be surprising if Bungie are gearing up to release a new entry. We’ll let you know once we hear anything about the release date.

It’s worth keeping in mind that this information is based on leaks, so be sure to take it with a grain of salt until we get official confirmation from either company about the development of this title.
