How To Get Grand Overture (& Its Catalyst)

How To Get Grand Overture (& Its Catalyst)

The Grand Overture is an Exotic Machine Gun that deals Arc energy damage in Destiny 2, and fires missiles from an additional hidden magazine.

The Grand Overture is the latest Exotic Machine Gun that players can get in Destiny 2, in addition to its catalyst. New Exotics are one of the most exciting parts of a new season in Destiny 2, and the Grand Overture is one of several new Exotics that players can use to significantly improve their loadouts. This Machine Gun has several unique traits that make it stand out from other weapons in its archetype, let alone other Exotic Machine Guns.

Grand Overture fires at 100 RPM, making it the second slowest firing Machine Gun in all of Destiny 2, just behind Xenophage at 90 RPM. Additionally, the weapon deals Arc damage and has a magazine size of 70 rounds. The first shot of Grand Overture requires players to charge up the weapon, but afterward, it becomes a slow-firing automatic weapon that hits yellow bar enemies hard. With its Omega Strike Exotic Trait, missiles are loaded into a separate magazine every time players land a hit, and they can be fired in a single volley with the alternate weapon action key or button.

Unlike some of the new Exotic weapons such as Osteo Striga or the class-based Glaives, the Grand Overture is not a weapon that players can get through the new weapon crafting system in Destiny 2. Instead, players can acquire the weapon in one of two ways, either from buying the season pass or reaching level 35 in the free version of the season pass with limited rewards. Unfortunately, anyone who misses out on grabbing the Grand Overture in Season of the Risen will have to gather multiple endgame materials in order to buy the weapon in-game during Season 17.

After grabbing the new Exotic Machine Gun, head to Banshee-44 in the Tower to grab the “Heavy Does It.” Completing this quest will unlock the ability to work on the catalyst itself, but it doesn’t unlock the catalyst overall. To complete the quest, players will need to defeat 50 Cabal, 50 opponents with Power weapons, and rapidly defeat 15 targets. Afterward, players will need to participate in 200 Vanguard, Crucible, or Gambit matches, with a win counting for two points overall. The second part of the quest also requires players to get 100 kills with the Grand Overture specifically.

Once the “Heavy Does It” quest is complete, return to Banshee-44 to receive the catalyst for Grand Overture. The next step is to slot the catalyst in the weapon and get roughly 400 kills with the catalyst slotted as well. Completing this objective finally unlock the Grand Overture catalyst in Destiny 2, which increases the range and stability of the weapon. Additionally, missile explosions will blind targets and cause enemies to explode.
