How To Get The Trespasser Catalyst (& What It Does)

Sidearms aren’t the strongest archetype in destiny 2, but they have a niche where some players see them as the weapon of choice. For these players, the Trespasser is a must-have Exotic sidearm due to its satisfying burst firing pattern and ability to chain bow damage to enemies as players get kills and reload.

The Trespasser also comes with its own Catalyst and Catalyst quest destiny 2. Those interested in scoring this Arc sidearm, especially since Arc 3.0 is now out for Season of the Plunder, need to know where to get the Trespasser’s Catalyst and what it takes to unlock it. As usual, Catalysts take quite a bit of grinding to complete, so a quick analysis weighing up some of the Invader’s pros and cons has been added to the end of this guide to help players decide if this is the weapon for She.


How to get the Trespasser Exotic Sidearm

The Trespasser Exotic Sidearm was a Season Pass reward for Season of the Haunted. Those who have completed their Season Pass have likely claimed the sidearm and already picked up their Exotic quest from Banshee-44. Even free Season Pass owners may have unlocked this weapon if they upgraded their Season Pass far enough in Season 18. So before you rush to buy this weapon, check the vault.

For those who missed the Season of the Haunted, the Trespasser sidearm can be purchased at the Monument to Lost Lights Exotic kiosk in the Tower. Players will need the following resources to afford it:

  • 1 Exotic Cipher
  • 100,000 Glimmer
  • 200 Legendary Shards
  • 1 Ascendant Shard

How to get the Catalyst for Trespasser

After players pick up the Trespasser, Banshee-44 will have a quest for them. Those who already have the invader may have this quest in their quest archive, so check there just in case (also found in the Tower and HELM). The quest is called “No Trespassing” and consists of three steps that players must complete before receiving Banshee-44’s Catalyst.

Step 1: Players do not need to use the Trespasser to complete the tasks in this step. Any weapons with precision damage and arc affinity will do. Fallen enemies are most commonly found in various Vanguard Assaults, the Cosmodrome patrol area, the Greed’s Grasp dungeon, and the Deep Stone Crypt raid.

  • Get 50 precision kills
  • Defeat 50 fallen enemies
  • Get arc kills

Step 2: Players must get kills with the Trespasser to complete this step. These kills must be included in playlist activities such as Vanguard Strikes, Crucible, and Gambit. The process is accelerated as players win matches in Crucible and Gambit, or when performing higher difficulty strikes such as Nightfall Strikes.

Step 3: Return to the Tower and speak to Banshee-44 who will reward the player with the Trespasser Catalyst.

In order to use the Trespasser Catalyst, players must get an additional 700 kills with the weapon. Altare of Sorrow and the entrance of Grasp of Avarice are both great places to upgrade primary weapons like the Trespasser.

What the catalyst does

If the catalyst is successfully deployed, the invader gains an additional benefit: tunnel vision. This could feel a little overwhelming, especially for PVE players looking for something more exciting than just better aiming and an increase in the speed at which players can aim the Trespasser.

However, for lovers of PVP sidearms, this is a dream come true and makes the Trespasser a cool and unique weapon to use in casual PVP.

Is the Trespasser catalyst worth it?

Given the amount of looping required to unlock the Catalyst and then deploy it, one might question whether the Trespasser Catalyst is worth it at all. By and large, it’s not, because sidearms continue to be a weak weapon archetype, especially on the PVE side of things.

Sidearms are a niche of their own for PVP. Some players will enjoy this, and in a way they can be useful against enemies charging in with shotguns, although this playstyle is becoming less popular due to the abundance of long-range maps and the proliferation of pulse rifles and scout rifles in PVP.

Still, it’s a powerful sidearm and one of the best. It’s also an Arc weapon, meaning there’s some level of synergy with any Arc 3.0 builds players develop in Season 18. Its range is perfect for most arc builds that rely on melee power anyway, so that extra range for scout rifles and pulse rifles might not even matter that much to some players.

destiny 2 is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Stadia.
