Iron Banner Makes Destiny 2 Debut With These Gear And Armor Rewards
Here's what you need to know.
Destiny 2 has already seen the release of several Trials events that spice up the Crucible PvP scene, and soon we'll have the game's first Iron Banner event. Iron Banner is now live; just as Bungie announced, the limited-time event made its Destiny 2 debut on October 10 at 2 AM PT. It will run for one week, and unlike the original version, Iron Banner in Destiny 2 works differently.
Iron Banner matches will be 4v4 affairs, just like other Crucible modes, and features the Control game mode. Bungie stated that your "fighting abilities, not your power levels, will decide the outcome," so it sounds as if Power levels will not be taken into account. Standard Iron Banner ranks and bounties are also out and have been replaced by Engrams.
To access Iron Banner, you need to have beaten the campaign to find Lord Saladin in the Tower. After speaking to Lord Saladin, you'll unlock an Iron Banner quest, which provides access to the Iron Banner playlist.
All matches you participate in (win or lose) will yield Iron Banner Tokens, and you'll get more if you win. There will also be daily and season-length milestones. And of course, there is armor for each class up for grabs, among other things. You can see all the Iron Banner weapons, armor, and gear rewards in our gallery.
