Destiny 2 DFA: How To Get The DFA Handcannon

Destiny 2 DFA is making a triumphant return to the game after being unceremoniously sunset out of the game years ago. Destiny 2 has an unfortunate policy of removing content from the game, apparently this is to reduce the size of the game and to keep it running smoothly. While this generally entails removing entire locations from the game, weapons can also get the occasional heave-ho. We have recently learned that the DFA will be returning to the game soon, so here is what you will need to do to get the Destiny 2 DFA hand cannon.

  • Bungie seems to be leaking like a sieve lately, as the Destiny 2 The Title SMG from the upcoming Guardian Games has also leaked early.

Destiny 2 DFA: What It Is

Destiny 2 DFA: What It Is

Maybe you heard the legend of the DFA hand cannon, but it was before your time and you have never had a chance to try it for yourself. The gun first appeared in the first year of Destiny 2 as a Nightfall exclusive reward. The Handcannon enjoyed a period of time in the top tiers of the game, until two years ago when Bungie put the weapon into the Destiny Vault, meaning the weapon did not go away, but could not be brought up to modern power standards, effectively making the weapon pointless.

One of the key selling points of the DFA was its versatility. It came with both Opening Shot and Rampage in its final perk slot. Rampage was ideal for PvE content, while Opening Shot really boosted the weapon’s viability in the Crucible. For players who loved the DFA, they could take their favourite gun with them everywhere.

 

  • Hawkmoon was thought to have gotten the boot as well, but it turns out you can still get your own Destiny 2 Hawkmoon with our guide to help.

Once again, the DFA will be a reward for completing Nightfall Strikes. It will return to the game during Season 17, so players can jump in and grind out some Nightfalls to get their hands on it. Like with other Nightfall weapons, the likelihood of getting the weapon goes up when playing on higher difficulties. Nightfall specific rewards are rare drops at Adept level, Uncommon at Hero, and Common at Legend or Master. Assumably, competing Grandmaster Nightfalls in season 17 will have the chance to grant an Adept version of the weapon.

We don’t yet know what a new DFA will look like in today’s Destiny 2, there may be stat changes and new perks in its table. There are also the new Origin Traits that new weapons come with, which could further change up the new DFA. Regardless, as a Nightfall reward it is safe to say the gun will be desirable, and hopefully, it will live up to its history.

That is everything we know about the new Destiny 2 DFA, but it isn’t the only weapon returning to Destiny 2 soon, as the Destiny 2 Trespasser is reportedly on the way.
