Upgrade Modules in Destiny 2 are very important tools that increase the level of light for your weapon and armor. Further, collecting upgrade modules is one of the most important tasks for a guardian.
Destiny 2: How to get Upgrade Modules
As said earlier, one of the critical tasks of a Guardian in Destiny 2 is increasing the level of your armor and weapons. Although you could just equip whatever gear drops randomly, eventually, you will want your favorite pieces to level up with you.
That’s where the Upgrade Module of Destiny 2 comes into play. Furthermore, Upgrade modules are consumables that allow you to take the level of light of one weapon or armor and apply it to another of the same category.
For instance, helmets can upgrade helmets, kinetic weapons can upgrade other kitchen weapons, and the list continues.
Consequently, the light level of your piece of equipment can grow beside your Guardian, thus allowing you to take on even more dangerous enemies throughout the solar system.
Destiny 2 Weapon Vendors
The most familiar source for getting Upgrade Modules is one of the two primary weapon vendors. You can find Banshee-44 in the central section of the tower or to your right when you initially load your game.
You can find Ada-1 next to the loom, down in the lower areas of the western section of the Tower. Likewise, speak to Banshee-44 or Ada-1 to see items for sale.
Further, each will offer two different Upgrade Module options in exchange for 5,000 Glimmer, 10 Legendary Shards, 25 Planetary Material, and one Enhancement Core.
Interestingly, both vendors will be offering the same planetary material options, though they change daily. If you find yourself short on glimmer or other materials, consider visiting the Spider at Reef. He sells and exchanges materials and can supply you with what you need to buy Upgrade modules.
Either way, you can wait for the next day when the requested planetary material has changed, in the hope that it is something you have enough.
Destiny 2 Farm Concentrated Mattergems
One of the fastest ways to get Upgrade Modules is Concentrated Mattergems. However, they come with a warning: Their buff is removed when an Upgrade Module Drops.
An elite enemy with orange or yellow health bars will have an extremely high chance to drop an Upgrade Module. As soon as the module drops, the buff is consumed, and you can use another Concentrated Mattergems instantly after that.
You can combine that with areas with large concentrations of elites like the dark area below the Cosmodrome, or the beginning of the Prophecy Dungeon. After this, you can quickly farm a large number of Upgrade Modules.
Destiny 2: Crucible Rewards
The manager of Crucible, Lord Shaxx, is another reliable source to farm Upgrade Modules. Instead of selling them, he prefers to give them away as rewards for ranking up in the Crucible.
Reaching Rank 4 in either Valor it Infamy will earn you a pat on the back from Shaxx and three Upgrade Modules. Further, these ranks can reset, thus allowing you to re-earn the packages several times over the season, as long as you are putting your time into the crucible.
Destiny 2 Seasonal Rank
Every Destiny 2 season brings with it another 100 seasonal ranks to climb. In addition, you get various prizes along the way that includes Upgrade modules. So you just need to play the game and earn XP to increase your seasonal rank.
Moreover, there are a few more modules locked behind the paid season pass. But the majority of them are free for players who put in the time to rank up.
Destiny 2 Mod Squad
Your small sentient machine of light companies, the Ghost, has a handy trick up his non-existent sleeves to help you find Upgrade modules. The Modularity series of mods award Upgrade Modules after your successfully complete various in-game activities.
Besides, there is a modularity mod for Crucible and Gambit that requires win against fellow Guardians to activate, and Vanguard which can drop after any successful Strike or Nightfall strike.
If you want to equip these mods, keep in mind that your Ghost needs to use a fully master worked Ghost Shell. The Modularity mods cost around four Energy to equip, which limits what other mods you can use simultaneously.
There isn’t any penalty for switching to different modularity mods in order to match your current activity but note that mods that are listed “Fragile” will eventually expire after Season 15.
Well, that’s all we have got for you. But where are you going, we have a lot more Destiny 2 Guides here. Check them out.
