Get Equipped, Destiny’s Iron Banner Event is Going Live

Destiny devs have rolled out a new special event dubbed as the Iron Banner. The event will run for an entire week before ending on October 14th and has some special rewards on offer.

Guardians will have plenty of opportunities to grab some gear while taking part in this limited time Crucible playlist. Keep in mind that unlike the usual multiplayer, your attack and defence ratings for weapons and armor will play a key role in this playlist so destiny players are recommended to bring their top gear.

“Equip your most powerful gear. The Attack and Defense ratings for your weapons and your armor will be crucial to victory.”

By completing bounties in the Iron Banner special event players will earn a chance to get themselves some powerful gear. Bounties will also increase your reputation with the Iron Lords. Iron Lords are like merchants who will grant you access to new gear.

“Complete special Iron Banner Bounties to gain reputation with the Iron Lords. Earn new gear as evidence of your prowess.”

You will have a reputation system to work with and the rewards are as follows:

Rank 1
Unlocks Iron Banner Emblem and Shaders
Emblem and Shader each provide stacking 10% boosts to Iron Banner reputation gains
Rank 2
Unlocks Iron Banner Class Items
Class Item provides stacking 10% boost to Iron Banner reputation gains
Rank 3

So what are you waiting for? The event has already started, jump in and earn those special rewards for your guardians.
