Hand Cannon Weapon Upgrades

//>> Upgrades>> Weapon Upgrades

In Destiny, each weapon of Uncommon quality or higher comes with at least 1 Weapon Upgrade ( Legendary Weapons come with two). These do drastically different things and some are much better than others. The following is a list that shows what Weapon Upgrades there are available on Hand Cannons in Destiny, what they do and what quality of Weapon they can be found upon (this is shown by the colored dots on the right). Exotics are not included here because they have static upgrades that do not change.
