Destiny 2 Deathbringer Catalyst Guide – How to Get & Finish the Catalyst

Destiny 2 Season of the Splicer is here and it’s time to elevate your fashion game. Along with new weapons, a 6 player activity, exotics, story missions, and season pass, the heavily requested armor transmogrification feature is finally arriving. In this season, players will team up with the Fallen Captain Mithrax to stop the Vex from plunging Earth into total darkness. For those looking to enhance their current arsenal, a new catalyst for the Deathbringer rocket launcher has arrived. While it’s easy to obtain, this catalyst can be a bit annoying to actually complete due to the weapon’s design.

How to Get the Deathbringer Catalyst

The Deathbringer catalyst is obtained by completing strikes, Crucible matches, or Gambit. It can be randomly awarded at the end of the activity. However, this item does appear to have a rather high droprate, so don’t be surprised if you get it your first time completing a strike. Additionally, if you haven’t obtained other catalysts tied to these activities there’s a chance a different one will drop instead of Deathbringer’s. This is the only way to obtain this catalyst, so make sure to hop into a few strikes or Crucible matches.

How to Level Up the Deathbringer Catalyst

Similar to other catalysts you’ll need to kill enemies with Deathbringer to level up the percentage bar. While this isn’t difficult on paper, the way this weapon functions makes it a bit tricky. Unlike traditional rocket launchers, Deathbringer must be fired overhead so it can release a cluster of seeking void bombs. Because of this, I recommend staying away from activities like Gambit or Override, as players will typically kill most of the enemies before your orbs even touch them. In fact, this is a catalyst that will go much faster if you’re solo or with friends.

For the lone wolves, you should definitely head to the Last Wish raid. In there you can input the code to transport to Shuro Chi. Once you’re here, drop a raid banner to fill up on heavy ammo and then start the encounter. This opening portion has a ton of highly condensed enemies. This makes Deathbringer especially potent, allowing you to quickly wipe out large groups of foes. Plus, you can just let the enemies kill you so you can restart, refill on ammo, and repeat. Another method is just grinding Lost Sectors like Kingship Docks or Excavation Site XII.

If you’re in a group, Battlegrounds is where you want to head. Not only are there a comical amount of enemies, but a bunch of places that you can refill some of your rocket ammo. Just make sure to put on your Rocket Launcher Scavenger and Rocket Launcher Ammo Finder mods! It will take a bit of time, but once completed this catalyst will decrease the distance you need to release the void orbs to deal maximum damage. Rocket Launchers are much more viable in PVE endgame content, these days, finally making this a fun weapon to mess around with!

  1. Id just like to point out that your comment at the end of your article is misinformed, because this rocket launcher has the highest PvE single weapon DPS in the game, so yes it is extremely viable in endgame content.

    1. Thanks for the heads-up on this! That part of the guide was written before the buff and we forgot to update it alongside the catalyst information. The guide now reflects the most recent balance changes.
