Destiny 2 Iron Banner Guide: All The Weapons, Armor, Gear, And Rewards
By Tamoor Hussain | @tamoorh on
Destiny 2's Iron Banner Crucible event is live now for the first time on PC, and once more for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players. Aside from providing another way to play Crucible, it introduces a wealth of armor and weapons to equip your character. We've gathered up images of everything that's available and put them in a gallery for your perusal.
To take part in the Iron Banner, you need to visit Lord Saladin in the Tower, which requires you to complete Destiny 2's story. Once the credits have rolled on the campaign, you'll be given access to the Tower and will be able to speak with Saladin once you've reached level 20.
The Iron Banner is accessible through its own Crucible playlist, which features Quickplay modes and matchmaking settings. You can join with a Fireteam or take on enemies solo. Whatever your choice, you've only got a total of seven days, as the Iron Banner ends on November 28 with the weekly reset.
Instead of 6v6, like in the original Destiny, Iron Banner matches in Destiny 2 are now 4v4. Additionally, Power levels are not taken into account, as Light levels were previously. Instead, "your fighting abilities, not your power levels, will decide the outcome," according to Bungie. Despite the official requirements outlined above, you may only need to finish the campaign and hit 20 with one character on your account; we were able to jump into Iron Banner and do well with a very low-level character.
All this is in service of racking up kills, climbing the ranks, and scoring Iron Banner Engrams. These are your ticket to getting the gear featured across this gallery. We've grabbed screenshots of all the Titan, Hunter, and Warlock gear, as well as the Faction Weapons Saladin has to offer.
For those eager for a little more, Destiny 2's first expansion titled Curse of Osiris is set to release December 5. It introduces Mercury (and the Infinite Forest) to explore, a new social space called the Lighthouse, missions, Strikes, Raid Lairs, free roam activities, a world quest, and more. It also increases Destiny 2's level cap.
