Hand Cannons in Destiny, are excellent close range weapons. Capable of killing enemies in a single shot, their range is better than your standard Shotgun and they reload much faster. However, their poor rate of fire makes them less than Ideal in direct confrontation. They have a much slower reload speed and much smaller magazine size compared to other Primary Weapons, so precision is key to make this weapon effective. Starting at Uncommon quality on Hand Cannons receive Upgrades that further enhance the weapon.

Note: Archetypes are sub-weapon classes within each weapon type. Guns of the same Archetype share fixed stat ranges on every stat. The stats are not the same for each gun, but all the guns in each Archetype will fall between the ranges of the Archetype. You can use this to get a better idea of what that particular gun is good at before you even look at it.
