Banshee sells eleven Legendary weapons at a time:

Each weapon will have a Power Level at the current Power floor, and will be at the base Masterwork tier.


These weapons were originally obtained from quests that were removed from the game and added to the Destiny Content Vault. They only appear in Banshee's inventory if their paired Exotic weapon is unlocked in Collections.


Banshee sells five "Featured" randomly selected weapons each day, with the weapons changing at the daily reset: 10:00 AM PDT/9:00 AM PST (17:00 UTC).[1] Weapon perk rolls are determined at reset. However, there is currently a bug (as recent as the Season of Defiance) that causes the weapons to re-roll their perks every day at 5:00 PM PDT/4:00 PM PST (0:00 UTC).[2] The specific weapons remain the same, but their perks change.

Each Featured weapon will correspond to a specific weapon type (e.g. Auto Rifles). The five weapon types remain the same for the duration of the current season, and appear to correspond to certain anti-Champion perks on the Seasonal Artifact.

The weapon types currently being sold during the Season of Defiance, corresponding to perks on the Ascendant Scepter icon.jpg Ascendant Scepter Seasonal Artifact, include:


Banshee sells one weapon from each of the following categories each day.

Combat Bows


Pulse Rifles



  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 These Swords can only be equipped and used by their respective class. All three will be sold in the same week, but the player's current class will determine which Sword shows up in Banshee's inventory. Switching to a character with a different class will change it to that class' Sword.


These weapons appear in Banshee's stock in the Destiny 2 API, but are not available in-game. They may be sold by him in future seasons.

Auto Rifles

Hand Cannons

Linear Fusion Rifles

Scout Rifles

Sniper Rifles


The following list is the pool of weapons that Banshee can currently sell under "Weapons". They are largely comprised of weapons from the World Loot Pool, and can also be obtained as drops from Banshee's Gunsmith Weapon engrams.

Each week, Banshee will sell two random weapons from each of the following categories, for a total of six. The weapons change at the weekly reset on Tuesday: 10:00 AM PDT/9:00 AM PST (17:00 UTC).[1] However, there is currently a bug (as recent as the Season of Defiance) that causes the weapons to re-roll their perks on Wednesday at 5:00 PM PDT/4:00 PM PST (Thursday at 0:00 UTC).[2] The specific weapons remain the same, but their perks change.

Gunsmith Rank

"Think you can handle serious hardware? Prove it."

Complete Gunsmith bounties to increase your reputation with Banshee-44.

Players can increase their rank with Banshee by completing daily bounties, or by dismantling weapons and armor items. Daily bounties give 65 points each when completed and claimed. Dismantling Legendary and Exotic gear gives 6 points of reputation for each weapon or armor item dismantled. Rank is tied to the player's account, and carries over between characters.

Players will stop gaining reputation points after completing rank 16. Gunsmith Rank can be reset after rank 16 is completed, allowing more reputation to be gained. The player's rank will be reset automatically at the start of the next Season.
