"…I love my job."
― In-game description

Sweet Business is an exotic auto rifle. It can be dismantled to generate Glimmer, Gunsmith Materials, and Legendary Shards.


This weapon has the following lore associated:

“Hope you're happy!” That's all I remember hearin' afore she ran out in front of us. It was like somethin' out of a pre-Golden Age war flick, you know, where the hero's bud goes out in a blaze of glory so their death can be rightly avenged. Only she didn't die. They did. The weapon reeled like it was bein' held by a child doin' a pee-pee dance, aimin' at nothin' and hittin' everythin'. Dem spiders skittered for their lives. When she stopped, nothin' was moving. She saved us.

I sidled up to her, real slow, checking out the piece and all I could do was sputter, “That there, that's some… sweet business.” She looked me over cold, lowered the gun and said, “You ain't gotta tell me.”


Sweet Business can be obtained by loot drops in PVE and PVP, Exotic Engrams, or can be purchased from Xur.
