  • Armor-piercing rounds icon1.png Armor-Piercing Rounds - Rounds cause extra damage to shields and overpenetrate targets.
    • Slightly increases Range.

    • Slightly increases Stability.

Sweet Business Catalyst can be obtained in strikes or in the Crucible. To unlock its upgrade, the player has to get multikills with this weapon.

The Catalyst adds the Serious Business perk to this weapon and Masterworks it.


  • The quest The Queen Beckons which rewards this weapon requires ownership of The Witch Queen expansion. However, it can still be obtained from the other listed sources without needing to own the expansion.
  • Sweet Business inherits the 1.25x Precision Multiplier possessed by all non-Adaptive Auto Rifles.
  • The weapon will continuously sound an alarm when below 29% magazine. This sometimes ceases after a few firing bursts.
  • The display has three non-descriptive indicators:
    • Magazine storage (bar graph)
    • Fire rate charge-up (bar graph)
    • Max fire rate (color)


"Hope you're happy!" That's all I remember hearin' afore she ran out in front of us. It was like somethin' out of a pre-Golden Age war flick, you know, where the hero's bud goes out in a blaze of glory so their death can be rightly avenged. Only she didn't die. They did. The weapon reeled like it was bein' held by a child doin' a pee-pee dance, aimin' at nothin' and hittin' everythin'. Dem spiders skittered for their lives. When she stopped, nothin' was moving. She saved us.

I sidled up to her, real slow, checking out the piece and all I could do was sputter, "That there, that's some... sweet business." She looked me over cold, lowered the gun and said, "You ain't gotta tell me."
