How to Get the Le Monarque Catalyst in Destiny 2: The Witch Queen

Good news Le Monarque fans! Bungie has finally added the weapon’s catalyst alongside The Witch Queen. So whether you’re a Destiny 2 catalyst collector or someone who wants to make your favorite weapon stronger, read on to see what this new catalyst does and how you can unlock it for yourself.

How to Get the Le Monarque Catalyst

You can obtain the Arbalest catalyst by completing playlist activities. That means strikes (Nightfall or otherwise) and Gambit or Crucible matches. It basically comes down to sheer luck, sadly. Keep in mind, you need to actually own the weapon itself to cause the catalyst to drop.

What Does the Le Monarque Catalyst Do?

Aside from the usual Orb generating effect — which is, to be fair, a huge deal — the Le Monarque catalyst gives you 30 additional Stability and 20 Reload Speed. Oh, and it also tacks on the Unrelenting perk for good measure. This makes it so the weapon triggers health regeneration whenever you rapidly defeat targets with Guardians and powerful combatants counting as more than one kill.

It is a pretty lackluster perk for high level content, but is a nice little upgrade to an already super good weapon otherwise. Unrelenting combined with the weapon’s poison traits can give you a blast of healing every time you clear a pack of minors.

How to Level up the Le Monarque Catalyst

You can level up the Arbalest catalyst by eliminating 700 foes. There doesn’t appear to be any kind of bonus for certain game modes or from the season pass catalyst progress buffs. You can just use the gun a whole bunch or grind it out quickly.

There are a lot of places you can complete this catalyst, but you should note that the old Thrall hallway in the Shattered Throne dungeon has been patched to no longer grant any kind of XP and as a result may nay not count towards catalyst progress. Give it a shot! We are yet to confirm that the recent patch also disabled catalyst progress from kills. Because of the new primary infinite ammo addition, you can literally just stand in one place as lines of enemies run at you.

If you are unable to reach this location, then activities like the Blind Well and Altars of Sorrow are terrific alternatives. The latter throws huge numbers of weak Hive enemies at you, making it easy to complete this catalyst. Sadly, our other recommendation, the Kingship Dock Lost Sector in The Tangled Shore has been vaulted with the launch of The Witch Queen. This was an extremely short Lost Sector that’s packed with enemies you can swiftly go through in less than a couple of minutes. We’re working on finding new places to farm foes, but in the meantime, use what you can above.
