Destiny 2 Exotic Weapon Catalysts
With the release of its Warmind update, Destiny 2 added a new exotic weapon masterwork system called catalysts. By completing specific actions in the game players have a chance of earning them for an exotic weapon, which turns it into a masterwork. However, once a player has the weapon masterwork with a catalyst they have to complete another set of objectives (usually getting kills using the weapon in a certain activity) before the true benefits of the masterwork are applied.
Not every exotic weapon in Destiny 2 has a masterwork, but there are quite a few that do. Bungie chose not to reveal how to acquire each of them so it was up to the community to figure each one out. And so far we know how to get the catalysts for almost every exotic weapon with masterwork potential.
Catalysts are special modifiers for Exotic weapons. They improve and upgrade Exotic weapons within the game by either improving stats, giving bonus perks, or raising the magazine size.
Each weapon has its own Catalyst and has specific objectives to find them. They function exactly like Masterworks and generate Orbs of Light on multi-kills. The drop rate for them is unknown, but they are a rare find. Once you find one for a weapon, you will have to do specific objectives with the weapon, such as precision hits or simply kill enemies in order to unlock the upgrade.
Destiny Carries LFG will help you improve your weapons by completing these for you.
