Lord Saladin is back in the Tower holding his infamous tournament. This is the final chance for the Season to earn some Iron Banner-themed rewards. Riiswalker and Archon’s Thunder can be earned from the quest, as well as post-game drops and bounty completions. While these will continue to be available in Season 15, Lord Saladin is looking to bring a couple of new weapons into the fold, fit for an Iron Lord.

SANDBOX CHANGES COMING IN SEASON 15
Learn more about Sandbox changes coming with Season 15 in This Week at Bungie via Bungie or check out the videos below.
Starting in Season 15, Bungie’s Darkness guide on Europa, the Exo Stranger, will now reveal more information on how to complete the tasks required for earning more Stasis power. Guardians who have finished the Beyond Light campaign and visit the Exo Stranger on Europa will see the entire path for unlocking Aspects and Fragments. Additionally, many of the pre-requirements for obtaining and completing the “Born in Darkness” quest chain will be reduced or removed. Previously, Guardians needed to complete several quest chains and unlock Salvation’s Grip before Stasis would grant them additional power.
Guardians that completed the Beyond Light campaign will have immediate access to the Born in Darkness quest chain from the Exo Stranger on Europa. The Exo Stranger also reveals every unowned Fragment, regardless of progression through the “Born in Darkness” questline, giving a preview of the many powers to unlock. With these improvements to messaging, aimed at removing a lot of the mystery around powering-up Stasis, we’re excited to see more Guardians unlock Stasis’s chilling power.
Cross Play Names
After last week’s announcement about Cross Play and Bungie Names, Bungie wanted to clarify a few things:
- The display name of the first platform that players log in with to play Destiny 2 beginning at 10 AM PDT on August 24, 2021, will become the player’s Bungie Name.
- Platform ID numbers, non-standard characters, and symbols will be removed and excluded.
- If a name violates our Code of Conduct, it will be changed to “Guardian.”
- Name changes won’t be available until a later update.
- For Steam players: your Steam profile name, not your Steam account name, will become your Bungie Name.
Bungie Foundation Campaign Items
Players who donated to the Bungie Foundation’s Giving campaign and didn’t receive an email should check their spam/junk/promotions folder for the email.
If the email still can’t be found, please fill out the Missing Destiny 2 Contest Emblem form.
If players used their code(s), they can find the item(s) in Master Rahool’s inventory in the Tower.
Please be aware that we’re currently investigating an issue where the Circadian Guard emblem isn’t appearing in player Collections. Don’t worry, your emblem is still connected to your account and you’ll be able to retrieve it when Bungie issues a fix in a future update.
