How to get the Thunderlord Exotic Catalyst in Destiny 2

Let thunder reign again.

Ah, Thunderlord. First introduced in Season 4 as part of a murder mystery, Guardians had to brave the then-closed-off walls of the Cosmodrome to recover this Exotic power weapon. For years it carried its weight until it finally received a Catalyst in Season 18. Guardians everywhere in Destiny 2 should add this to their collection. Here's how to find it.

Where to find the Thunderlord Catalyst in Destiny 2

You can find the highly coveted Thunderlord Exotic Catalyst in three places: Strike completions, Crucible matches, and Gambit matches. No meta requires having the Catalyst, so take your time farming it. Since their drop rate isn't atrocious, it would come within a few hours of playing normally. Once acquired, Guardians must rack up 500 kills with Thunderlord to complete the Catalyst.

The Thunderlord Catalyst adds the Return Stroke Perk to the Exotic weapon. This perk has Thunderlord partially reload its magazine from reserves with each lightning strike. This works beautifully with the base Reign Havoc Perk which has final blows generating stunning lightning strikes. With a room full of targets, Thunderlord will rain down terror.
