Exotic Hand Cannon Kinetic
Review Rating
These ancient ceremonial pistols can be dated back to the early Golden Age. A faded inscription reads, "To Sigrun, from Victor." Read Lore

"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!"

Sturm and Drang is a surprisingly fun, effective, and underrated/overlooked combo. Drang kills net you "infinite powered ammo" for Sturm. In the crucible you can two tap or finish with Drang if you open with the overcharged shot. This gun deserves at least a 4.5 for its originality and lethality (when used skillfully).

Very fun to use with Drang - That's the whole point. Bungie had some fun with this one. One of the best 110 handcannons. Never have to reload if you are getting those Drang kills.

Before forsaken, this was my go-to weapon, as is was, and still is, a guaranteed two-tap to the head with overcharge on. That isn't the case any longer, and Sturm is unfortunately outclassed by competitors. In PvE by midnight coup, ace of spades and OG better devils, and in PvP by Luna/NF, ace of spades, trust, and so on. Today, the weapon is situational. If you plan on using inertia override or empowering rift, this weapon can perform a one-shot kill to the head in PvP - which is very good! This is when you would consider using this weapon.

Not a big fan of Hand Cannons but paired with Drang, it's an amazing gun to have.

My favorite hand cannon (tied with The Last Word). Packs the punch and range you'd expect out of a Hand Cannon. Just gotta peek and hit your shots.

I'm not sure why this HC is getting a bad rep, pair it with the Drang and you'll never have to reload, plus range and impact are good. However, I agree there are better HC's out there when not looking for the storm/stress combo.

Its a great 110 to use in Crucible and does NOT to be used with Drang. As long as it is masterworked it has 93 range and 77 handling.

Why are people downrating this? Get a Drang with quickdraw, masterwork your Sturm, get kills with Drang, then swap to Sturm. Profit.

Paired with a good Drang, this duo is really fun.

Without Drang, it's mediocre. With Drang, when overcharged, It becomes better than Eriana's Vow.

does similar body damage while overcharged as a linear fusion rifle heavy
