The Iron Banner Comes To Destiny 2 On 10th October, Prestige Raid Coming Too

What, no maintenance?

The dust has barely settled after the Faction Rally event last week – turns out more people were completely wrong than I thought, as FWC came in third place! – and Bungie are moving onto the next temporary event in Destiny 2. The Iron Banner will return on 10th October as part of the the regular weekly reset.

You’ll then have a week to compete in the Iron Banner, which has been slightly modified since the first game. Obviously, it’s now between two teams of four, but your damage output will not be affected by your light/power levels in the game, making it as much about skill and teamwork as the standard crucible.

You have to have completed the main campaign in order to compete, at which point you’ll be able to visit Lord Saladin in order to begin the Iron Banner Quest and join the Iron Banner playlist. You earn Iron Banner Tokens each match, with more if you win, and there are Daily milestones for you and Season milestones for your clan – more details on those are coming.

Of course, there’s still Iron Banner specific gear to unlock as well:

For those who’d rather stick to PvE, Bungie are also launching the Prestige Raid, which boosts the minimum recommended power level to 300. There will be minor changes to how each section works – Bungie state these are minimal – but the main difference is the step up in combat difficulty, with unique rewards to earn from completing it.

    Really looking forward it iron banner returning. That’ll be a week of pvp for me.

    I haven’t even completed the raid yet, let alone prestige mode. Maybe one day I’ll get the time?

    I’ve been really looking forward to getting some IB gear but that hunter outfit is hideous!

      All of them are a little bit hideous, but I’m thinking that if they can shaded, they might turn out a bit better.
