With Destiny: Rise of Iron, Bungie has really stepped up its game when it comes to the story component of the game. The story quest-line is quite interesting and recommended for everyone who owns the expansion.
In Destiny: Rise of Iron, as part of Echoes of the Past quest-line, you will need to complete Beauty of Destruction side quest which will ultimately net you the Iron Gjallarhorn. In order to complete the quest, you will need to acquire 7 Iron Medallions which are basically the remnants of the Iron Lords.
Destiny: Rise of Iron Medallion Locations
To make things a bit easier, Bungie has placed a detection system for these Medallions. You only need to be in the close vicinity of these Medallions and they will pop-up on your radar and marked by your Ghost.
You don’t really need the exact location of these medallions as your Ghost will find them for you once you are in range. All you will have to do after that is go to the marked position and collect them.
Keep in mind that while you can find these Medallions any time you want but if your Beauty of Destruction quest is not active, you won’t be able to collect them. With these things, clear, let’s find some Medallions.
#1 Archon’s Keep Iron Medallion
Once you are at the entrance of Archon’s Forge, you need to walk along the outer boundary of the building. After walking for sometime, you will come across some rubble near an entrance. You will be able to find the Archon’s Keep Medallion on top of it.
