Something New is the newest Legendary Hand Cannon that players can get during the Solstice of Heroes 2022 event in Destiny 2. It’s a high impact hand cannon that is good for shooting targets from a long range.

How to get the Something New Hand Cannon

The Something New can be obtained as a random drop from clearing Bonfire Bash runs. Equipping an entire Candescent Armor set can improve the rewards from the bonfire, so there is a higher possibility of getting Something New with this method. It’s one of two event-exclusive weapons along with the Compass Rose Shotgun.
