Destiny 2 Deathbringer Catalyst – How to Get, What it Does


In the new Season of the Splicer for D2, Bungie has added the catalyst for the exotic RL, Deathbringer. The catalyst instantly makes the weapon an S-tier. Using the weapon effectively still requires a little practice but the catalyst makes it a little easier. In this guide, we’ve detailed all there’s to know about how to unlock the Deathbringer catalyst in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer and what it does.

Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer Deathbringer Catalyst

The catalyst is a random drop in Season of the Splicer. From what we’ve gathered so far, it appears to drop from any playlist activity. A couple of my friends and I got it from a Strike. For people who are still looking to get it, I’d recommend running a few Strikes to see if it drops from there – NFs are also decent.

Completing it requires a total of 400 targets defeated which is manageable since a single rocket can kill a few enemies easily. I’d definitely recommend something like Altar of Sorrows on the Moon or loading into the Shuro Chi checkpoint in the Last Wish raid through the Wish Wall – loading into Shuro Chi CP is superior because of Rally Flags to get rid of any ammo problems since Deathbringer is a Power Weapon. It shouldn’t take more than 4-5 Rally Flags to fully complete the catalyst.

Once completed, Deathbringer gets the Dead Weight perk. With the Dead Weight perk, the duration at which the Dark Descent reaches its full potential increases substantially. What this means is that there’s no need to fire the rocket way above a target as firing it slightly above a target should work just fine. Thanks to the catalyst, Deathbringer has instantly become the top-tier DPS option for raids and Grandmaster NFs. It’s something I’m considering taking into the VoG on day-1.

This is all we’ve got in how to get the Deathbringer catalyst in Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer. Feel free to check out our detailed Season of the Splicer wiki guides for more help on the game.
