Iron Banner is LIVE
"Let the Iron Banner shape you."
~ Saladin Forge
What is the Iron Banner?
Iron Banner is a week-long Crucible event in Destiny 2 that offers its participants unique rewards. More info can be read right over at Bungie.net
The game mode is an unique variant of Control – Control all three zones, and the Hunt will begin. The zones are locked down for 15 seconds, before they are reset to neutral state.
Unlike all other Crucible modes, Power Level matters. Meaning you will deal less and take more damage if you are below the Power Level of your opponent.
How Long does Iron Banner last?
Event Starts: Tuesday at Weekly Reset (1700 UTC).
Event Ends: Following Tuesday at Weekly Reset (1700 UTC).
Where do I go to find Guardians to game with in the Iron Banner?
- You can head over to Fireteams, www.The100.io, Xbox LFG system, DestinyLFG.net or DestinyLFG.com, or go to the Bungie.net recruitment forum (also available through the Bungie App).
What if I have a question about another piece of armor/weapon or general Iron Banner question?
- Use Control + F (Or Command + F if on a Mac) and search for keywords in your question. Someone may have asked it already. If they haven't ask right below.
Each season features a seasonal quest you can pick up from Lord Saladin. After each quest step, you will be rewarded with an armor piece from the current season.
Progress will carry over to subsequent Iron Banners in the same season, but the quest will expire at the end of the season.
How to earn Iron Banner Tokens
Upon completing an Iron Banner Crucible match, players will be awarded with Iron Banner Tokens to turn in to Lord Saladin. While all Iron Banner match completions award tokens, wins award more tokens than losses.
- Wins reward 5 Tokens.
- Losses reward 3 Tokens.
Players may earn additional Iron Banner Tokens by completing the Weekly Iron Banner Bounties. These can be completed on each character.
- Weekly Bounty Reward – 50 Tokens
- Each Weekly Bounty also rewards a piece of Pinnacle Gear.
There are seven different weekly bounties, of which four are available each IB. See below for a list!
