How to get Osteo Striga Catalyst – God Roll for PvP & PvE

Last Updated on March 16, 2023

Osteo Striga is one of the most powerful exotics in the game. The weapon doesn’t even require you to take down enemies, just run around and shoot while casually aiming at enemies, and they’ll die.

The weapon is rewarded after the completion of the Witch Queen campaign. While the vanilla exotic does well in most cases, the catalyst takes it to the next level. The catalyst once applied; automatically refills the mag as you get kills with the poison effect along with faster reload speed.

You need to own the Witch Queen DLC to obtain the catalyst, as the weapon is tied to the quest. Let’s find out how to get the catalyst and the best rolls.


  • Impact: 25
  • Range: 82
  • Stability: 43
  • Handling: 33
  • Reload Speed: 26
  • Reload Time: 2.35s
  • RPM: 600
  • Magazine: 27

The low magazine should not impact you greatly if you have the catalyst. Each poison kill will refill your magazine. Pair this with the Void 3.0 Devour build, and you will be godlike in PvE.

Note: Your SMG has to have a level 10 or above to be eligible for the catalyst. To apply the catalyst, you also need 3x Ascendant Alloy, 140 Ruinous Element, and 2000 Neutral Element.

  • Head to the Enclave located on the Savathun’s Throne World.
  • Go to the Crafter > Reshape > Submachine Guns > Osteo Striga
  • Make sure you haven’t equipped the weapon, and your kinetic has one slot left
  • The shaping panel will open up; now select the last slot as shown in the screenshot below:
  • Choose all your desired perks; you can use our god roll perks list below. Click on Apply
  • Your newly powered Osteo Striga is ready to shred some enemies.

  • Fluted Barrel – Increase stability and handling.
  • Accurized Rounds – For increased range and stability.
  • Toxic Overload: Exotic Trait
  • Hand Laid Stock – Can switch this to Fitted Stock too.
  • Osteo Striga Catalyst

This is a Hybrid roll that should work for both PvE and PvP. A mix and match of both range and the catalyst. You can switch range for more reload speed.

  • Toxic Overload: Exotic Trait
  • Hand Laid Stock

You can change the barrel and mag of your choice, which would offer you more range. But the build I have mentioned has a range of 91; having 100 range and losing out on stability and handling is not worth it. Also, the weapon should be used only for close-range or long-range pre-fire spam. If you want kills, you’d still want to use a precision rifle/HC.

Please keep in mind that god rolls are subjective and can change according to what build you are using. 

It is refreshing to see Bungie finally working on something that the users are loving. The only reason I left the game was repeated tasks, which was not the case with the Witch Queen campaign. Are you enjoying this update?
