Legendary Masterworks are Legendary weapons and armor in Destiny 2 that are upgraded to have modified traits. Legendary gear can be upgraded to Masterworks through the use of Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards, but can also drop from any source of Legendary gear for characters above 250 Power. Raid and Trials of the Nine weapons and armor will have a very high chance to be Masterworks when earned as rewards.

PLEASE NOTE: Legendary gear purchased directly from vendors cannot drop as a Masterwork, and must be upgraded by the player. Vendor engrams, earned by completing activities, milestones, or by turning in vendor tokens, can drop as Masterworks, with the exception of Raid gear. Raid Masterworks can only be received as drops directly from Raid activities, or by upgrading a non-Masterworked Raid gear.

Masterwork Traits

Listed below are the unique traits offered by Legendary gear that has been upgraded to Masterwork.

Legendary Weapon Masterworks

Legendary Weapon Masterworks have the following bonus traits:
    • Track and display the number of enemies defeated with that weapon (with choice between total count or Crucible-only count)
    • Generate orbs for you and your allies on multi-kills
    • Add weapon stat bonuses that are selected randomly from a small pool and are rerollable for Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards
    • Dismantle into Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards

Legendary Armor Masterworks

Legendary Armor Masterworks have the following bonus traits:
    • Increased damage reduction while using your Super
    • Can reroll the armor stat type on Masterwork Armor (Heavy, Light, or Restorative) for Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards
    • Dismantle into Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards

Identifying Masterworks

Legendary Masterwork weapons and armor can be identified by the gold trim present on their icon, tooltip, and inspection screen. Masterwork gear also makes a distinct audio queue when dropped into the player's loot stream.

    4. Apply, at the cost of Masterwork Cores and Legendary Shards

Rerolling a Masterwork

Legendary Masterworks can be rerolled, to change or modify their stats. This is done by:
