How to Get Delicate Tomb Catalyst in Destiny 2

The Delicate Tomb and its Catalyst were introduced with the Season of Plunder in Destiny 2.

Players can get their hands on this powerful Fusion Rifle to help strengthen their Arc subclass. They can later get his Exotic rarity Catalyst to make it even more dangerous.

Players need to go through a few steps to get the Catalyst, but they’ll need to get the Delicate Tomb first.

Anyone who plays Season of Plunder can easily find the Delicate Tomb fusion rifle. Players can unlock it right away by purchasing the Season Pass with 1,000 Silver, which works out to about $9.99.

Those who do not want to spend real money can enjoy the free version of the season pass. The Delicate Tomb is a reward given when players reach level 35.

A handful of tiers can be earned each day in the free season pass. Players just need to complete all available challenges, defeat all enemies they see, and keep an eye on their progress in the Season 18 tab.


Players need to visit Banshee-44 to start the quest that rewards the Delicate Tomb Exotic Catalyst in Destiny 2.

Once the Delicate Tomb has been acquired, players can visit Banshee-44 in the Tower. This social space has multiple NPCs that act as vendors and quest givers.

Banshee-44 will provide a quest called The Form of Danger. There are three steps that players must follow to unlock the Catalyst and complete the mission. The steps are listed below:

  • Step 1: Defeat 50 enemies using special ammo guns and defeat challenging combatants. The new Ketchcrash activity has many “challenging combatants” for players to defeat. Players should do this with Delicate Tomb in hand, as it uses special ammo.
  • Step 2: Complete Vanguard, Gambit, and Crucible matches while defeating objectives with the Delicate Tomb. Higher ranked Nightfall, Crucible, and Gambit wins will make this step progress much faster. Defeating other Guardians is also a way to pick up the pace.
  • Step 3: Return to Banshee-4 after completing steps one and two. Deliver the calibration data and receive the Delicate Tomb Catalyst.

With the Catalyst unlocked, players can equip it in the Delicate Tomb to activate its perks. The Fusion Rifle has a chance to create an Ionic Trace when a final blow is dealt to an enemy. However, powerful enemies and other Guardians will always spawn one.

If an Ionic Trace forms after an opponent is eliminated, Destiny 2 players will see their Delicate Tomb receive some ammo in the clip. A partial recharge is granted each time an Ionic Trace is collected.

If used in PvP against other Guardians, players will replenish ammo with each kill they rack up. This could lead to Delicate Tomb never needing a reload as the user takes out the enemy team.
