This weapon already makes quick work of Tormentors, especially for those who have been wanting to find out how to kill Tormentors in Destiny 2. But if you’re hoping to reach the Destiny 2 Season 20 Power Cap, the Quicksilver Storm Catalyst will make getting new loot a breeze.

Destiny 2 Quicksilver Storm Catalyst how to get and unlock

You can get and unlock the Destiny 2 Quicksilver Storm Catalyst by completing the Any Data Port in a Storm quest.

You’ll unlock the ability to complete this quest after completing Downfall, the third mission in the Destiny 2 Lightfall missions list. You need to head to the holoprojector near Nimbus in Neomuna to start the quest.

To unlock the Quicksilver Storm Catalyst, you’ll need to rapidly defeat combatants to collect data in Neomuna with Auto Rifles, grenades, or Grenade Launchers. To complete the second and final step of the questline, you’ll need to defeat enemies with the alternate fire of Quicksilver Storm to receive the Catalyst.

After you receive the Catalyst, you need to kill enemies with the weapon to be able to use it.

However, you’ll need to know how to unlock Strand in Destiny 2 first.

That’s everything there is to know about the Destiny 2 Quicksilver Storm Catalyst, including how to get it and its unique effects. That’s not the beginning and end of Strand’s potential however. Here’s all the Destiny 2 Strand weapons that are being introduced with Lightfall.
