Destiny 2 Sweet Business Catalyst: How to get it

by | May 2, 2021

This quick guide will tell you everything there is to know about the Sweet business catalyst.

Namely, how to get it, how to unlock it once you’ve found it, and more importantly, is it even worth it?

And that last part is important because Exotic catalysts can be extremely hard to find and/or unlock, but the benefits are not always up to par.


How to get the Sweet Business catalyst

First things first, before talking about the Sweet Business catalyst, you may not even have the weapon itself yet. If that’s the case, this is how you get it:

How to get the weapon?

Problem is, Exotic engrams can be tricky as they are random drops for the most part. That said, there are proven ways to find exotic engrams in Destiny 2:

  • From the Season pass (both the free and paid tracks offer a couple as rewards)
  • From Xur: Every week, he has an Exotic engram for sale which is guaranteed to give you an exotic you don’t already have.

Other than that, Exotics engrams have a higher chance to drop from end-game activities, such as Nightfall: The Ordeals. And the higher the difficulty (Master level and above), the higher the chance to find some.

How to get the catalyst?

Just as the weapon itself, the catalyst is also a random drop completely dependent on RNG:

The Sweet Business catalyst drops from kills, completions or wins on Strikes, Nightfalls or the Crucible.

► Adds Serious Business perk: Reduces incoming flinch when firing Sweet Business at full speed.

Because it’s a random drop, how fast you find it will ultimately depend on your luck. Because of it, we can’t call this an easy catalyst to find, but average/hard depending on your RNG…

How to unlock the catalyst?

Once you have found the catalyst, you will have to get 250 Multikills to unlock it.

Can you farm the Sweet Business catalyst?

When it comes to finding a Catalyst, it is officially impossible to farm Catalysts that randomly drop from completing Playlist activities and/or getting kills. Some say that completing the Catalysts you already have can increase your chances to find new Catalysts.

In my experience, completing Catalysts sometimes resulted in me finding new Catalysts shortly after. But take it with a grain of salt.

When it comes to unlocking a Catalyst you already found, there are definitely ways to farm it. The most famous method remains to visit the Shuro Shi checkpoint in the Last Wish raid. If you’re unfamiliar with it, you can check this guide.


Sweet Business Catalyst Perks

The Sweet Business catalyst adds the following perk:

  • Serious Business: When this weapon is fully spun up, the flinch from incoming damage is greatly reduced.

While far from being one of the best catalysts out there, Serious Business does improve the weapon itself. In fact, if you know what you’re doing, you can take it into a 6v6 PVP match and slay like an AC-130 gunship from the skies!


Is the Catalyst for Sweet Business worth it?

The weapon itself and its catalyst are both considered C Tier:

  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.

Slot: Kinetic | Ammo: Primary

Exotic Perk: "Larger magazine. Increased accuracy when firing from the hip. Picking up ammo for this weapon immediately reloads it."

► While it can be fun to use, especially when pre-firing it and surprising opponents in PVP, Sweet Business definitely feels underpowered and is easily outclassed by even legendary Auto rifles.

Taking into account that:

  1. Finding the catalysts is hard because it depends on RNG
  2. The weapon itself is not in a great place right now
  3. The catalyst is a modest improvement…

If you don’t have it yet, don’t sweat it. It will eventually drop, and in the meantime, you’re not missing much.
