The Centrifuse auto rifle comes with a range of interesting perks that make it a very good weapon. Like all exotic weapons, its base stats and perks are fixed.

Here are all the perks of the Centrifuse exotic auto rifle:

  • Overcharge Capacitor: Sprinting, sliding, and firing the weapon will build a temporary electrostatic charge that accumulates over time. This will increase the range and reload speed of your weapon momentarily. 
  • Regenerative Motion: When you sprint or run this weapon will reload itself gradually.
  • Corkscrew Rifling: This weapon has slightly increased stats of range, stability, and handling speed of +5 each.
  • Appended Mag: This weapon has an increased magazine capacity of +4 bullets.
  • Hand-Laid Stock: This weapon is highly optimized for recoil control thus improving its stability when firing. This perk increases the stability stat by +10

How To Get The Exotic Catalyst

The catalyst of the Centrifuse exotic auto rifle can be acquired when you visit Banshee-44 at the tower. However, unlike other exotic weapons, The catalyst is very time-consuming and can be a tedious task. It is recommended that you complete the objectives and steps of the catalyst on the Shuro-Chi checkpoint of the Last Wish raid. This is guaranteed to provide you with the most efficient and constant progress.

Here are the required objectives you need to complete the catalyst for Centrifuse:

  1. Defeat targets with Arc Final blow: 0/40
  2. Defeat enemy targets rapidly: 0/20
  3. Generate calibration data; 0/200
  4. Defeat enemy targets: 0/450
  5. Return to Banshee-44 to receive the catalyst

Once the Centrifuse catalyst is acquired, you can equip it which will improve the stats and performance of your weapon a lot. When you are amplified, having the catalyst will make the weapon gradually gain overcharge. This means that when you are not sprinting, you will still gain electrostatic overcharge. Unlike, when without the catalyst, when you stop moving, you start to lose overcharge.

You can also use Centrifuse exotic auto rifle with many Arc builds on Titan, Hunter, and Warlock. However, it will perform comparatively better with your Titan and Warlock builds. With a Warlock class, you can use Vesper of Radius Arc build, which will perform extremely well in PvE activities. Combined with the explosive nature of this build and the arc explosions from Centrifuse auto rifle exotic perk Overcharge Capacitor, clearing this Centrifuse build will be very easy and efficient.

So, in conclusion, Destiny 2’s Centrifuse is a very good exotic weapon that revives the 450 RPM auto rifle meta. Moreover, it also brings back memories for veterans who find it similar to Zhalo Supercell from Destiny 1.

Centrifuse also manages to perform exceptionally well in PvP and PvE activities, with the catalyst making it an even better weapon. Furthermore, the Centrifuse build with arc subclass can be paired with Titans, Hunters, and Warlocks.
