IRON BANNER

Available Now until Oct 05 @ 10AM PDT

Two new weapons are available, the Forge’s Pledge Pulse Rifle and Peacebond Sidearm. They are each available through vendor packages, bounties, match rewards, and the Seasonal Iron Banner quest.

This season, Bungie introduced the Iron Lord’s Pride intrinsic perk through this set. Wearing a piece of this armor grants a small chance of an Enhancement Prism dropping at the end of an Iron Banner match. Each additional piece worn increases the chance, capping out at four pieces total.

Forge’s Pledge – Energy Pulse Rifle

Peacebond – Kinetic Sidearm

Iron Forerunner Armor Set

TRIALS OF OSIRIS

3v3 Competitive Activity – Available for all Destiny 2 players! 

Reminder: Trials of Osiris is not available when Iron Banner is live, which means it will not be here this coming weekend, October 1. Trials will return on Friday, October 8, 2021.

Here is what Bungie wrote about this in the Trials Revamp article:

SCHEDULING 

First and foremost, Trials will be taking a short hiatus at the beginning of Season 15. In our goals of maintaining a healthy population, we’d like to remove issues where players are torn between multiple PvP or endgame goals for a given weekend. So, we’re making the following changes for all our future Seasons starting in Season 15: 

  • No Trials in Week 1, or before Raid World First. 
    • Week 1 should be about exploring new content, features, and tunings, as well as finding and using the new weapons and Exotics. 
  • No Trials during Iron Banner. 
    • Overlapping limited-time PvP events aren’t good for the health of either game mode. 

NOTE: Check out the Trials page for more details!
