IRON BANNER

Ends: Tuesday, April 20 at 10:00 AM PST

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:

Here is also a bit of news about Iron Banner rewards coming next season: Season of [REDACTED] is coming in a few short weeks, and Saladin has a few new items up his sleeve for you to earn when the new season begins on May 11.

  • A familiar Hand Cannon and Sniper Rifle will be rejoining the fight, but two new weapons are also making their debut. Bungie’s goals moving forward are to continue bringing some Year-1 weapons up to speed with random rolls, but also bringing some new rewards into the fold when possible.
  • Looking even further out, Bungie is planning new armor for Iron Banner. These sets won’t appear for a few Seasons.

REMINDERS

Remember to Dismantle Your Shaders!

Beginning in Season 14 (launching May 11), Bungie is overhauling our shader system and how shaders can be applied to armor. Shaders will become permanent unlocks, and all shaders in player inventories will be removed. Bungie encourages everyone to dismantle their shaders before Season 14 begins to receive Glimmer and Legendary Shards.

More information about the new shader system can be found here under: “Getting Reacquainted with Adelaide.
