How To Upgrade Destiny 2 Modules?

To infuse gear in Destiny 2, you’ll need Upgrade Modules. Here’s how you earn them.

Now that gear sunsetting has been implemented in Destiny 2: Beyond Light, using relevant gear is more important than ever before. Every weapon and armor piece in Destiny 2 has a Power Level that dictates what content your character can partake in. Guardians with a higher Power Level can partake in pinnacle PvE and PvP content such as raids and Trials of Osiris.

Upgrade Modules are a core part of this progression system, allowing you to infuse higher Power Level gear into items you enjoy using. These items are mainly obtained from Banshee-44 or Ada-1 in the Tower, but Bungie has added a few additional ways to earn Upgrade Modules throughout Year 3 and 4 of Destiny 2. Here is every possible way to obtain Upgrade Modules in Destiny 2.

How To Obtain Upgrade Modules

Compared to Masterwork materials, Upgrade Modules are much harder to target farm in Destiny 2. These items are typically purchased from vendors or earned from the Season Pass. You can obtain Upgrade Modules from the following sources:




Banshee-44/ Ada-1




Ghost Mod


*Concentrated Mattergem



Crucible Valor Reward



Gambit Infamy Reward



Season Pass

Season Pass


Banshee-44 And Ada-1

Module Amount: 1 per purchase

Most Guardians will get their Upgrade Modules from Banshee-44 or Ada-1 in the Tower. Purchasing an Upgrade Module requires the following:

  • 1 Enhancement Core
  • 10 Legendary Shards
  • 25 planetary materials
  • 5,000 Glimmer

Note that the planetary material required changes daily. Banshee and Ada-1 will both sell two different Upgrade Modules that require different planetary materials. Both vendors require the same materials. If you’re low on Glimmer or certain materials, you can visit Spider on the Tangled Shore to stock up on supplies.

Valor and Infamy

Module Amount: 3 per Valor/Infamy reset

Reaching rank 4 in either Valor or Infamy will grant three Upgrade Modules. Resetting either ranking system will not remove this reward, allowing you to get three Upgrade Modules per reset.

Ghost Shell Mods

Module Amount: 1 when the mod procs

The Modularity series of Ghost Shell mods grant a chance of receiving an Upgrade Module upon completing or winning an activity. Strikes, the Crucible, and Gambit each have a Modularity mod. You must have a Masterworked Ghost Shell to equip these mods. Each Modularity mod costs four energy to equip.

Season Pass

Module Amount: 19 per season

Every Season Pass in Destiny 2 contains a bundle of Upgrade Modules in the free track. Season Passes grant Upgrade Modules at the following tiers:

  • Rank 2: Upgrade Modules x3
  • Rank 4: Upgrade Modules x3
  • Rank 8: Upgrade Modules x3
  • Rank 11: Upgrade Modules x2
  • Rank 14: Upgrade Modules x2
  • Rank 18: Upgrade Modules x2
  • Rank 21: Upgrade Modules x2
  • Rank 26: Upgrade Modules x2

A Season Pass grants 19 Upgrade Modules in total. Players that have purchased the active season do not get any additional Upgrade Modules on their premium track.

Module Amount: 1 per Mattergem

Eververse can also sell Concentrated Mattergems, a consumable item that gives bosses a chance to drop an Upgrade Module. Once a boss dies, the consumable buff expires. Each Concentrated Mattergem costs 200 Bright Dust.

Buying Concentrated Mattergems is highly discouraged due to the limited income rate of Bright Dust. Purchasing three Concentrated Mattergems would require you to complete most vendor weeklies and a few Seasonal Challenges. This isn’t worth the time or Bright Dust investment.
