Destiny 2 Upgrade Modules - Where to Find Upgrade Modules Quickly

Need to find Upgrade Modules in Destiny 2 quickly? We've got you covered.

In the Shadowkeep expansion for Destiny 2, the way in which you upgrade your existing gear has been overhauled, so you now require one specific item to boost the Power level of your current weapons and armor. In this guide, we'll be detailing everything you need to know about the Destiny 2 Upgrade Modules, including how they work, and how you can get them quickly.

How to Get Upgrade Modules in Destiny 2

There are currently a few ways to earn Upgrade Modules in Destiny 2. Below, we'll highlight the two known methods of earning Upgrade Modules:

  1. Season of the Undying Rewards - You'll earn eight total Upgrade Modules through earning XP, to unlock successive reward tiers in the Season of the Undying battle pass.
  2. The Gunsmith - If you go to the Gunsmith in the Tower, you can purchase Upgrade Modules for 1 Enhancement Core, 10 Legendary Shards, 5,000 Glimmer, and either 25 Seraphite or Etheric Spiral.

Purchasing the Upgrade Modules from the Gunsmith is definitely the easier of the two options here. Progressing through the Season of the Undying battle pass reward tiers is pretty time consuming, even if you are earning XP pretty much all the time from defeating enemies and completing missions.

Upgrade Modules Explained

If you've been playing Destiny 2 before Shadowkeep launched, you might remember that you used to have to gather certain materials, plus Glimmer, in order to infuse one weapon with another. Doing this would sacrifice the higher level of the two weapons, but raise the Power level of the weaker weapon to the level of the item that you sacrificed. It was basically an upgrade system that helped make your older weapons and armor items useful again.

But now, you don't need to gather different materials in order to infuse weapons and armor with one another. Instead, all you need to do is spend one Upgrade Module every time you want to infuse an item. As such, it's a pretty good idea to have a fair few Upgrade Modules lying around in your inventory, in case there's one weapon in particular that you want to keep at a high Power level.
