How to Get Izanagi’s Burden Catalyst in Destiny 2

The Izanagi’s Burden is a well-known powerful gun in Destiny 2 known for its sniping abilities. The gun in itself deals devastating damages in individual shots but can be improved even further in other areas using the Catalyst.

If you can get your hands on the gun itself, you are more likely to dominate your enemies but with the Catalyst mod, you can harness its power with its full potential. To obtain the catalyst, there are certain requirements, and obtaining the Izanagi’s Burden itself requires some criteria.

In this post, we will guide you on where you can get this sniper rifle and how to get its Catalyst to maximize its potential.

Obtaining Izanagi’s Burden Catalyst
