Consumable: Gunsmith Materials
Materials that may be useful for modifying weapons and armor. Bring these to a Gunsmith to increase your reputation with them.
Obtained: You get one or more of these by dismantling any gear or armor that is Rare (Blue) or better in rarity.
Every 28 Gunsmith Materials give you one Reputation Level. The reputation in turn gives you a rare legendary (purple) item! Dismantle anything you don’t need. It gives 1 Gunsmith Material per dismantled item. In other words: dismantling 28 blue or better items gives you enough Gunsmith Materials to receive a purple legendary item in return. The legendary engrams from the gunsmith also scale to your level (up to power level 265).
