Description Banshee-44 has lived many lives. As master weaponsmith for the Tower, he supplies Guardians with only the best.

Banshee-44 is the Gunsmith.


  • The Tower — on the western side of the Tower Courtyard, behind the Vault.


Banshee sells six weapons from the world drop loot pool, two weapons each from the Kinetic, Energy, and Power slots. These weapons change weekly, and their perks are randomly determined at the beginning of the week. Their Power Level will be at the current Power floor, and they will be at the Masterwork base tier. In addition, Banshee also sells four random Weapon Mods (excluding Adept mods and mods from raids).

Upgrade Modules can be bought using two different types of destination materials. These will be the same materials as the Upgrade Modules offered by Ada-1.



The following list is the pool of weapons that Banshee can currently sell from. Each week, he will sell two weapons from each category, for a total of six.

Kinetic Weapons

  1. Despite being an Energy Weapon, Staccato-46 is grouped with the Kinetic Weapons in the Destiny 2 API.

Energy Weapons

Power Weapons

Rank Rewards

Players can increase their rank with Banshee by completing bounties, or by dismantling weapons and armor items. Dismantling Rare items gives 1 point of reputation each, while Legendary and Exotic items give 5 points of reputation each.[1] Rewards can be obtained when certain ranks are reached. Rank can be reset to 1 after rank 16 is completed. Rank will be reset to 1 at the beginning of the next season, and any unclaimed rewards will be lost.
