Thorn is the name of a hand cannon in Destiny. This Weapon has been described as an onyx-colored, spiked "hand cannon" that glows when primed. It appears in concept art to be a revolver, but this has not been confirmed.
Thorn was briefly described to media at the Reveal Press Conferenceas a reward for completing a mission at Charlemagne's Vault and concept art was shown on a slide at Bungie's GDC 2013 panel. No further information has been made available by Bungie.
