Bungie has officially announced the first Destiny 2 Iron Banner event for Season of Arrivals, which is set to take place from June 30 - July 7 in the game. The event will offer players a few new perks and weapons that can be earned during the PvP Crucible event. In this guide, we will take a look at all of the Destiny 2 Iron Banner perks and weapons that players can earn from the event.
Destiny 2 Iron Banner Event - Perks and Weapons
There are a total of eight weapons that players can get as rewards during the Destiny 2 Season of Arrivals Iron Banner event. Six of these weapons will be “reissued,” while two of them will be “reprised.” The six reissued weapons are as follows: Bite of the Fox, Crimil’s Dagger, Orewing’s Maul, Swarm of the Ravens, The Shining Sphere, and Talons of the Eagle. The two reprised weapons are The Fool’s Remedy and The Forward Path.
Further, two reprised weapons will also have two perks added to them, Iron Gaze and Iron Grip. Specifically, Iron Gaze will improve target acquisition but will decrease the weapons range, while the Iron Grip perk will improve the weapon's stability but will decrease its reload speed. It’s worth emphasizing that these perks are only part of the reprised weapons, not the reissued ones.
Bungie has also revealed that the Season of Arrivals Iron Banner event will work “similar to last season,” which required players to complete a series of quests for Lord Saladin to earn rewards. So if you participated during Season of the Worthy, you’ll likely have a good idea of how this works. If not, it should be explained in-game once the event releases. Further, unlike last season, there will be no skill-based matchmaking in the Season of Arrivals Iron Banner event.
The Destiny 2 Iron Banner event is part of the Season of Arrivals update, which is the final season before the Beyond Light expansion is released in September. In case you missed it, earlier this year Bungie revealed that it plans to support Destiny 2 through the year 2021 and announced three new expansions that will be released over the next three years. This means that there will be no Destiny 3 in the near future and that Destiny 2 is officially confirmed for the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5.
