"I never thought this was real. I've heard the stories. We all have. But do you realize what that is? It's history." - Ghost

You are the new owner of Dredgen Yor's original Thorn. Merely holding the gun makes you nauseous - not out of moral principles, necessarily, but instead of a very physical effect which reminds you of losing your Light during the Red War. You don't know what to do with this... thing. You have no intention of firing it. If nothing else, you believe you need to neutralize it.

Neutralize the Thorn's intrinsic Darkness with the strength of your Light.


  • Generate Orbs: 250


  • Participate in activities with out Guardians, using your super to Generate Orbs of Light.
  • Participating in the Escalation Protocol with a few other Guardians can help you quickly get the needed number of orbs.
