Unlock Destiny Weapons, Armor, Items in Iron Banner Event

The Iron Banner event is back in Bungie’s latest sci-fi shooter, Destiny. Guardians have a week-long window to enter the event as it will end on November 24th.

Squads who are willing to enter, can only be led by a level-20 or above Guardian. This means that if your rank is lower than 20, you can accompany a level-20 or above Guardian to enter the Crucible:

“Guardians lower than Level 20 can accompany their more powerful friends at their peril. Prove your might and earn the respect of the Lords of Iron.”

Some changes have been made according to player feedback. This time, your attack and defense ratings will influence the amount of damage you inflict or take from other players. This means that lower level players with fully upgraded weapons shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Guardians can earn Iron Banner Bounties; these will improve player reputation with Iron Lords. This in-return will unlock new gear to meet all of your combat needs.

Furthermore, the Iron Banner is offering level 30 gear such as boots and gauntlets. During the event, Players can achieve up to five ranks. Keep in mind, that at the end of this event, your ranks will reset.

Following items can be unlocked in each rank, as revealed by Bungie:

Rank 1:

  • Unlock Iron Banner Emblem.
