Banshee-44, also known as the Gunsmith, finally has a relevant role in Destiny 2. Sure, he offers bounties, upgrade materials, weapon mods, and a rotating selection of weapons, just like Xûr.

His weapons and rolls are completely random, and every now and then, he happens to sell some of the best weapons in the game. This guide will keep you up to date with every Legendary weapon he has for sale every week.

  • S Tier – Best: Highest ranking weapon types.
  • A Tier – Strong: Very strong weapon types, but not on the same level as S Tier Choices.
  • B Tier – Average: Decent choices that can be lethal in the hands of a skilled player.
  • C Tier – Weak: The middle of the pack, somewhat mediocre.
  • D Tier – Worst: Lagging behind the competition, these don’t have much to offer.
