Recreate Destiny's Thorn (minus the damage over time) with this airsoft pistol mod

If you're still mired in Crucible void kills, you could always skip the exotic bounty hassle and 3D print your own Thorn. This model (opens in new tab) from MyMiniFactory user Kirby Downey doesn't inflict a nasty damage-over-time debuff, but it does fit over a standard CYMA Glock 18C AEP airsoft pistol.

Discerning Destiny (opens in new tab) exoticians will see that the model's been simplified a bit so you can use it in an actual airsoft fight without bits breaking off. Still, it's more than half a meter long once fully assembled, and its pointy, glowing green form has shock-and-awe written all over it.

If you're more concerned about visual details than being able to pop your friends with your favorite Destiny gun IRL, check out Downey's original Thorn model (opens in new tab) instead, which is a distressingly good likeness of the infamous hand cannon (opens in new tab). Either way, you'll never have to worry about them getting rebalanced (opens in new tab) overnight.
