The Catalyst is an upgrade to an Exotic Weapon.

Overview

Catalysts are account-wide items that are permanently slotted into Exotic weapons to enhance and Masterwork them. Each obtained Catalyst is tracked in the Triumphs.

The player has to obtain their Catalysts through various activities. Some are obtained through quests, some are randomly dropped in the Crucible, strikes, adventures, or even in the patrol zones. Some weapons do not have a Catalyst at all. The player can find a Catalyst for a weapon only if they have obtained that weapon and unlocked it in their Collection. Carrying or equipping the weapon is not required and does not increase the Catalyst's drop chance.

After obtaining a Catalyst, the player has to complete certain objectives to be able to activate its effects and socket it into the corresponding weapon like a Mod.
