Bungie revealed in the recent TWAB that some changes are coming to the Gunsmith reputation in Season 18.

Joshua Kulinski, Economy Feature Lead for Destiny 2, said that reputation progress for Banshee-44 is not quite in the state that they would like it to be. To address this, they’re making a couple of significant changes arriving next season.

First, daily Gunsmith bounties will grant double the reputation (from 25 to 50) for a total of 200 Gunsmith reputation points each day. Second, the Gunsmith reputation earned by dismantling Legendary and Exotic weapons is increased to five, which gives players even more incentive to dismantle useless weapons they have in storage.

Kulinski also said that these changes would allow engaged players to reset Banshee-44’s reputation at least once per season.
