About Iron Banner:
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 This Season:
- Iron Banner bounties that grant Pinnacle drops.
- The Time-Worn Spire – Pulse Rifle and Multimach CCX – Submachine Gun
- Random rolls are available on these weapons.
- New perk called Iron Reach that can roll on these two weapons. Iron Reach will massively increase range with the tradeoff of decreased stability.
- Iron Will armor set
- Has been updated to accept new Combat Style mods.
NOTE: View more about Iron Banner here.
Jump coordinates matching an errant distress signal. (This Quest is available for all players! To earn the Catalyst you’ll need to complete the activity on Master difficulty.)
Recommended Power Level:
- Normal: 1230 | Master: 1320
Quest Reward: Dead Man’s Tale – Exotic Scout Rifle
- Dead Man’s Tale – Exotic Scout Rifle with Random Rolls (Once you have completed Presage quest, you will be able to earn Dead Man’s Tale with random rolls once per week by completing Presage quest.)
- Pinnacle Gear
To start this quest for the first time, enter The Arms Dealer strike and follow the alternate path. (It doesn’t matter if it’s the Nightfall or the regular strike). After doing that you should see the Quest pop up on The Tangled Shore. Complete the quest and you will be rewarded with Dead Man’s Tale (the first one is without a random roll). Similar to obtaining random rolls for Hawkmoon, Guardians can obtain a randomly rolled Dead Man’s Tale by completing the “Presage” quest in the Tangled Shore. You can only get one random roll per week this way.
NOTE: For more details about this quest and reward, visit this page.
New 3 Player PvE Activity (Recommended Power: 1100)
