Izanagi’s Burden Intrinsic Traits

This allows you to hit targets further as well as deal even more damage in a small amount of time, great for taking down powerful enemies or other Guardians.
How to Get Izanagi’s Burden Catalyst?
The Izanagi’s Burden Catalyst will upgrade the Izanagi’s Burden by increasing its range by 18 once you have completed its required challenges.
The increase in range makes the Izanagi’s Burden deadlier from afar and allows you to hit enemies similar to the range of a rifle.
The Izanagi’s Burden Catalyst can be obtained by defeating non-Guardian enemies found anywhere in the system.
To unlock the Izanagi’s Burden catalyst upgrade, you will need to defeat 300 enemies with precision damage when using the Izanagi’s Burden.
Izanagi’s Burden is capable of dealing with some of the highest damaging shots amongst other Sniper Rifles and to make things even crazier, its catalyst makes it more efficient.
Being an Exotic Sniper Rifle, the Izagani’s Burden on its own already deals incredible damage and with its intrinsic trait as well as its catalyst, it can easily take down powerful enemies.
This Exotic Sniper Rifle is a favorite in PVP due to its ability to kill Guardians easily, that is if you are accurate enough with the weapon.
