Weapon Mods are an essential part of the Destiny 2 experience. Using the proper mods can make the difference between a decent weapon and an excellent one.

How to get Weapon Mods in 2023

Weapon mods, as well as rotating weapons, can be purchased from Banshee-44. He’s located in the Tower. He sells four mods per day, and every day, the mods on offer change, which means you’ll have to visit him daily until you finally find what you’re looking for.

Are Banshee’s mods random?

The Gunsmith’s mods rotate each day randomly. Therefore, some mods may take months before they become available for purchase again.

When do Banshee-44 mods reset?

Like everything else in Destiny 2, the Gunsmith’s mods rotate daily at 9:00 AM Pacific (1700 UTC). This means that every day at 9:00, the four mods available will rotate into something else.
