In order to get the Quicksilver Storm Catalyst you will have to complete the ‘Any Data Port in a Storm’ quest. The quest can be acquired from the Holo Terminal in the Hall of Heroes on Neomuna after completing the Lightfall mission Downfall. The Downfall mission is step five of 21 on the Lightfall mission chain — when you have the quest you can start working through three quest steps in order to unlock the catalyst.

The catalyst itself will change the weapon type of Quicksilver Storm from Kinetic to Strand. You will be getting highly acquainted with the Strand element while creating the best builds with it in the game. Since the Catalyst will transform the weapon in the Strand version it will be a brilliant addition to your arsenal even more than usual.

Not only that but tangles will also be created if you get any kills as a final blow with Quicksilver Storm’s grenades. These final blows will likely happen fairly regularly so the catalyst is absolutely worthwhile to attempt and get.
