Salford Red Devils ran in eight unanswered tries and kept Catalans Dragons scoreless to win in Perpignan for the first time in eight years.
Tries from Joey Lussick, George Griffin and Jake Bibby sent the visitors into a commanding 18-0 lead at the break.
Niall Evalds crossed soon after the break before Griffin scored his second as the visitors piled on the points.
Jackson Hastings added himself to the scoresheet before Evalds touched down again and Ken Sio wrapped up the win.
Salford's fourth victory of the season helped Ian Watson's side bounce back emphatically from last week's defeat by leaders St Helens.
Catalans' third defeat in five games came just a week after they ended Warrington 100% start to the season.
The French hosts struggled to gain any sort of foothold in the game against the Red Devils and looked doomed right from Lussick's eighth-minute opening try for Salford.
Bibby, who started his first game this season, compounded Catalans' first-half misery when he ran in a third Salford try, this time from Hastings' tremendous cross-field kick.
