Are you looking for an efficient way to increase your Gunsmith Rank? Then, you are in luck, as here we will talk about how to swiftly increase your Gunsmith Rank in “Season of the Haunted.”
Destiny 2 is a popular looter-shooter video game created by Bungie, also well-known for developing the Halo franchise. In this MMO RPG, you can select from three distinct classes and earn diverse gears and exotics to customize your Guardian’s appearance. You can also level up your characters by completing activities such as Nightfall, Crucible, Gambit, Gunsmith, and more.
Since the release of Destiny 2, Bungie has constantly been adding new content through new DLCs or Seasonal updates. Along with new seasons, they introduce some new activities that are closely linked with in-game Vendors. Therefore, players need to Rank up with these Vendors in order to get access to these activities.
Similarly, players must upgrade their rank with Banshee-44 to level up their Gunsmith Rank. Additionally, players can play through gunsmith bounty missions and dismantle gears to gain Gunsmith points to level up their ranks. Like other vendors, Banshee-44 handles the gunsmith ranks and their respective tasks.
What is Gunsmith Rank in Destiny 2?
Gunsmith rank is associated with Banshee-44, or known as the gunsmith. By increasing your ranks with the gunsmith, you can obtain valuable materials and good weapons. Similar to the other vendors, you can also reset your rank with the gunsmith for extra rewards.
Gunsmith’s ranking system is the same as other factions like Vanguard, Crucible, And Gambit. You will need a certain amount of points to rank up with the gunsmith. In addition, as players upgrade their rank, they will gain access to Gunsmith specific weapons and equipment. Increasing the gunsmith rank also allows players to earn ornaments, emblems, and weaponry.

How to Increase Your Gunsmith Rank in 2022
There are a total of Sixteen Gunsmith Ranks in Destiny 2. Players must earn a certain amount of Gunsmith points to ascend to the next rank. After reaching the next rank, players can visit Banshee-44 to receive the Gunsmith rank-up rewards.
There are a total of two ways to obtain gunsmith points in Destiny 2. Gunsmith bounties will reward you with gunsmith exp and other gears. You can also earn gunsmith rank-up points by dismantling your weapons and armors.
Gunsmith bounties are accessible from Banshee 44. Completing these bounties will reward you with 15 Gunsmith rank-up points with the other bounty rewards. Like other bounties in Destiny 2, these bounties also require you to kill certain enemies with a specific weapon or damage type. You can pick up multiple bounties at a time and complete them as you play through your mission.
Dismantling gears to increase your gunsmith ranks is not a good idea. You will get little to no gunsmith points while dismantling your gears for gunsmith rank-up points, but it is an option nonetheless. While you can get three gunsmith points by dismantling your Exotics and legendary gears, you will only get one point when dismantling the rare gears.
Rewards for Increasing Gunsmith Rank
After reaching a certain rank or leveling up your rank, the gunsmith will reward you with some valuable gears and weapon enchantment materials. You will also get a legendary engram when leveling up your gunsmith rank. Simply interact with Banshee-44 to receive your rewards after leveling up your gunsmith rank.
|Ranking||Rank Level||Rank Name||Rewards Name||After Reset|
|1||Rank up||Initiate||Legendary Engram||Legendary Engram|
|2||Division Rank up||Guardian I||Prime Engram||Null|
|3||Rank 4||Brave I||2 Enhancement Cores||2 Enhancement Cores|
|4||Rank 7||Heroic I||2 Upgrade Modules||2 Upgrade Modules|
|5||Rank 10||Fabled I||2 Enhancement Cores||2 Enhancement Cores|
|6||Rank 13||Mythic I||2 Upgrade Modules||2 Upgrade Modules|
|7||Rank 16||Legend||1 Ascendant Alloy||1 Ascendant Alloy|

Easiest ways to increase your Gunsmith Rank Fast
While there are only two options available to earn points for your gunsmith ranks, Completing Gunsmith Bounties is the most efficient. The reason is that Dismantling gears offer fewer gunsmith points than the bounties. That being said, you can also farm gears while completing these bounties and dismantle them for extra points to boost your rank further.
If you complete all four gunsmith bounties from three characters, you will get 180 points each day. After dismantling your extra gears, If you can get up to 200 points each day, it will take roughly 50 days to reach the max rank. This makes it one of the slowest factions to level up and one of the hardest to reset rank.
