Tips and Tricks


After the release of The Dark Below, Attack of the weapon was increased from 274-300 to 302-331. Players can upgrade old versions of the weapon into the new one by visiting Xur and paying 1 Exotic Shard and some Glimmer.


Thunderlord is a possible reference to the DC Superhero of the same name who could create destructive sound waves. Possible reference to the Japanese god of thunder, Raijin. Thunderlord has a hidden firefly perk as well.
