How to get Ager's Scepter Catalyst in Destiny 2

The latest exotic trace rifle is a must-get, and its catalyst makes it an even better weapon.
How to get Ager's Scepter Catalyst in Destiny 2

Destiny 2 fans who have been diligent enough to track down all Atlas Skews via the Tracing the Stars questline and A Hollow Coronation exotic quest have gotten their hands on Ager's Scepter, the brand-new Stasis exotic trace rifle.

The gun is a blast to use and features some incredible perks that synergise amazingly with Stasis builds. Since it occupies the primary slot, it leaves the heavy slot open for another big hitter to add to your arsenal. This makes it a definite must-have for Guardians.

What's even better is that it features a catalyst that players can acquire to make Ager's Scepter even better. So, how does one get ahold of the Ager's Scepter catalyst and what does it do exactly? Let's find out.

How to get Ager's Scepter catalyst

Thanks to Bungie, we'll not only know how to obtain the Ager's Scepter catalyst it but we also know when it will drop. Sadly, you will have to wait a little longer before trying to get your hands on it.

According to Bungie, the catalyst for the Ager's Scepter will only become available to drop after the reset on 21 September. This news was announced via the developer's official Twitter page on 14 September.

The developers also noted that, in order for players to obtain the catalyst, they would need to open Wayfinder's Troves after finishing the Astral Alignment activity. The Troves are the second chest to spawn at the end of Astral Alignment and require 100 Parallax Trajectory to open them.

According to leaked sources via Reddit, the weapon will use fully charged Super energy to give Ager's Scepter a tremendous amount of utility. 

Here is the leaked description of the catalyst:

  • Drain Super energy, overflowing the magazine and empowering the beam with bonus damage and the ability to slow and freeze targets until the magazine or Super energy runs out, or the weapon is stowed. Can only be activated when Super energy is full.
