"And my vanquisher will read that book, seeking the weapon, and they will come to understand me, where I have been and where I was going."
The following is a verbatim transcription of an official document for archival reasons. As the original content is transcribed word-for-word, any possible discrepancies and/or errors are included.

"…I love my job."

"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 is a very uniquely-modeled auto rifle. Its Gatling-style barrels indicate that it is built for suppressive fire on a scale akin to machine guns. This is reinforced by its 150-round magazine, which is the largest magazine size of any auto rifle featured thus far in the Destiny series. It becomes particularly accurate when being fired from the hip and its stability can be increased to a degree where landing precision shots is an easy task. To take full advantage of this weapon, however, the user must hold down the trigger for sustained periods to achieve the maximum rate of fire of 900 RPM. Considering the initial rate of fire of 360 RPM, this can take some time to get used to. When the weapon is fully spooled up, it deals consistent damage at a blistering rate and any foe that crosses this weapon's line of fire will be dropped incredibly quickly, especially if the wielder can consistently hit precision shots. Additionally, any special or heavy ammo pickups will automatically reload the magazine, allowing for more uptime. The large magazine size, high stability, and fire rate ramp-up make Sweet Business a formidable weapon to wield when in the right hands. It is recommended to pair the Actium War Rig with Sweet Business, as it will automatically reload the gun's magazine from the reserves, even while firing. This will allow Sweet Business to deal the highest sustained damage of all kinetic weapons.


  • Prior to the release of Shadowkeep, High-Caliber Rounds was the perk in place of Armor-Piercing Rounds, which led to excellent knockback with the weapon.
  • Before infinite primary ammo was added in Season of the Lost, this weapon wasn't that good in the Crucible, due to the fact that it ran out of ammo quickly. Now, however, it is a highly viable option due to its rapid fire and high range.
