New weapons have been added to Destiny 2 Season of the Wish for players to acquire, but there are also some old favorites that veteran players will surely be familiar with, such as the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst. This weapon was already present in the past, but there are some important changes regarding how it can be obtained. If you are among those who love hand cannons, you certainly cannot miss this weapon, even if it presents some difficulties related to the aiming system.
How to find and get the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst weapon
In order to obtain the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst, you have no choice but to open the Exotic Engrams that you will find in the game world, defeat enemies, and complete activities and missions. In reality, it wasn't that difficult to find this weapon before because it was one of the guaranteed rewards that were given to players for completing the Sacrilege mission of the Red War campaign but unfortunately, this campaign is no longer playable. So, if you are among those who have not achieved it this way, you will have to find other ways to do it.
Our advice for getting the Sunshot Catalyst is to run Nightfalls for a chance to get an Exotic Gear Piece. Obviously, it goes without saying that the higher the difficulty, the better chance you have of finding what you're looking for. Furthermore, another important thing to know is that you will also have the chance to obtain Exotic Engrams by completing ritual playlist challenges once you reach the pinnacle cap. As a result, you will need to complete as many Strikes or Crucible matches as possible.
Unfortunately, there isn't one of the two that has a higher drop rate than the other, so it's up to you. However, since you won't have to complete many to get the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst, we recommend completing the ones that take less time in order to speed up the entire process. Eventually, with a little luck, you will be able to obtain this weapon. So, now it's time to give you some more information regarding Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst stats.
Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst stats and upgrades
Now that you know how to get the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst, the time has come for you to start studying it. This weapon, as we said previously, is not very simple to use due to a not very practical aiming system, but once you get used to it with a little practice, you will be able to see all its power in action. In fact, by equipping this weapon, you will have respectable weapon stats that could make your life a lot easier. Let's see them together below:
- Impact: 80
- Range: 38
- Stability: 46
- Handling: 83
- Reload Speed: 75
- Rounds Per Minute: 150
- Magazine: 12
- Sun Blast: Targets killed with this weapon explode with Solar Energy.
- Textured Grip: Increases Handling speed and decreases Stability.
Having archived this aspect, it is now important to dedicate a few lines to the enhancements of the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst. In fact, what kind of weapon would it be if there wasn't the possibility of upgrading it? Fortunately for you, you won't have to fulfill many requirements to be able to upgrade the Sunshot Catalyst, although, in terms of numbers, that's not a few enemies to kill. In fact, the game will ask you to kill 500 enemies using the Sunshot and 1000 enemies using the Sun Blast Explosion.
The first requirement to satisfy will not be very difficult and you should be able to satisfy it simply by playing. In fact, all you have to do is deal the final blow to enemies using the Sunshot. As regards the second requirement, however, things are a little more complicated, as you will have to kill enemies with the explosion created by killing an enemy using the Sunshot. This is definitely a more difficult thing to do, but if you play a lot of matches, it will come over time without even having to focus too much on it.
Ultimately, we can say that this weapon is very useful and powerful in PvE, thanks to the chain explosion ability. In fact, an intelligent use of this weapon allows you to kill many enemies at the same time with a single shot, as well as having the possibility of damaging the most powerful enemies. On the other hand, however, the Destiny 2 Sunshot Catalyst is not a very useful weapon in PvP, as, as we said previously, it is more useful against many enemies than against single targets.
