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 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.

RITUAL PLAYLIST WEAPON REWARDS
Here is some info from a recent Bungie blog post about the ritual playlist rewards, where to get them, and drop rates plans.
Written by Chris at Bungie: At the release of Beyond Light, we introduced new weapons into the reward pools of Crucible, Gambit, and Vanguard Strikes. To give a quick rundown for the New Lights out there, each of these weapons has a low drop rate and deep perk pools, intended to give players dedicated to a particular playlist a weapon to hunt. Our goal when introducing these rewards was to provide space for longer term, ritual-specific goals for players as they chase after the perfect roll on a given weapon, and explore the possibility space of perk rolls on a weapon archetype in the same way weapon designers do.

As we saw some positive reception to these weapons in Beyond Light, with players digging through the perks and comparing rolls, we’ve added two more to each ritual in Season of the Chosen, bringing the total per ritual to three.
Pictured: Vanguard Pulse Rifle/Rocket Launcher, Crucible Sniper Rifle/Sidearm, Gambit Hand Cannon/Fusion Rifle.
While the drop rates for each individual weapon are not intended to be so high that it’s easy to quickly acquire a large amount of rolls, we’ve been seeing some feedback that they currently feel too scarce. Our current plan is to increase drop chances for these ritual-specific weapons later in Season of the Chosen. While we don’t want these weapons to become a short-term grind for players seeking perfect rolls, we do believe that they need to drop a bit more frequently for them to be a positive experience when completing their associated activities. Once these drop changes are live, we’ll be watching the conversation to see if any other changes need to be made.
Our current plan is to continue adding weapons to these pools in future Seasons. There may be some Seasons where these pools remain the same, and others where a new weapon is added while one is rotated out. This should help keep the offerings streamlined for players on the hunt for a specific reward.
Thank you to all who’ve been sounding off with feedback since these were introduced, and we’re excited to hear more! – Chris at Bungie
Hotfix 188.8.131.52: Next Tuesday, March 2, Hotfix 184.108.40.206 will be released. Here is a timeline of events:
- March 2, 8 AM PST (1600 UTC): Destiny 2 maintenance for Hotfix 220.127.116.11 begins.
- March 2, 8:45 AM PST (1645 UTC): Players are removed from activities and won’t be able to log back into Destiny 2 until 9 AM PST when Hotfix 18.104.22.168 is available.
- March 2, 9 AM PST (1700 UTC): Destiny 2 Hotfix 22.214.171.124 is rolled out across all platforms and regions. Players can log back into Destiny 2 at this time. Ongoing maintenance is expected to conclude at 10 AM PST.
- March 2, 10 AM PST (1800 UTC): Destiny 2 maintenance is expected to conclude.
Below are some issues that will be resolved with Hotfix 126.96.36.199. A complete list will be shared by Bungie when the update goes live.
- Barrier Colossus in Battleground: Behemoth will no longer mosey out of their barrier shields to say hello to unsuspecting Guardians.
- The Chosen Destruction Umbral Focusing Lens will now allow players to focus Umbral Engrams.
- Beneficial modifiers in the Battlegrounds playlist now work as intended.
To ensure progress is recorded for “The Voice on the Other Side” quest for Dead Man’s Tale, players should make sure that they have the quest in their inventory prior to starting Presage. If the quest was originally acquired on another character, players will need to reacquire the quest on their current character from the Quest Archive at the Tower.
Upon completing Presage, players will need to pick up Dead Man’s Tale and wait for the mission complete end timer to appear prior to returning to orbit. Failing to pick up the weapon or leaving before the mission completes will result in progress not being recorded for the quest.
Mislabelled Exotic Ornaments
Earlier this week, a refund was sent out to players affected by the mislabeled Exotic ornaments in Eververse. Players who qualified for the refund received a message on login and had the Silver from their ornament purchase added back to their account.
Bungie is continuing to investigate the issue causing some players to not receive their Bright Dust rewards from completing the Weekly Challenges for Gambit, Crucible, and Vanguard. Players affected by this issue will be granted the Bright Dust they should have earned in a future update.
Help Center Migration
Last week, the Help Center at help.bungie.net completed its migration to a new service. Players who encounter broken links, untranslated sections (excluding Contact Forms), or other issues with the new Help Center should report them to Bungie’s #Companion Forum.
Companion App Known Issues
Players can now stay up to date on current Destiny Companion App known issues on Bungie’s new #Companion Forum Known Issues List. Players who encounter issues not already on the Known Issues List are encouraged to report them to Bungie’s #Companion Forum.
