NEXT WEEK IN DESTINY!

  • Iron Banner goes live for the first time this Season.
  • The Inverted Spire returns be the Nightfall: The Ordeal.
  • Clash goes live in the Crucible, plus all players will earn bonus Valor in the Crucible playlist.
  • Update 3.0.1 goes live, check out a preview of Patch Notes below.

IRON BANNER // LIMITED TIME EVENT

Begins: Tuesday, Dec 08 @ 9 AM PST

Ends: Tuesday, Dec 15 @ 9 AM PST

Info: For any New Lights out there, Iron Banner is a limited time 6v6 Crucible activity with Power-enabled combat. While artifact power is disabled, you’ll want to infuse and equip your most powerful gear before jumping in. Similar to Control, there are three zones on the map for your team to capture. The more zones you hold, the more points you get when defeating Guardians. If your team is brave enough to capture all three zones, the opposing team will be locked out of capturing zones for a short duration. In other words, this is your time to shine while your enemies cower in fear.

Rewards: Two weapons from the first year of Destiny 2 have been reprised, now featuring random rolls + the Iron Will armor set has been updated to accept new combat mods. (View more details about rewards below)
