Destiny 2 has already revealed that the monthly PvP event from Destiny 1 known as Iron Banner will return in the sequel some time in October. Developer Bungie has yet to confirm details about the PvP event, which historically always occurred one week per month. However, fans have discovered some of the details surrounding the upcoming event from the game’s database.
If it isn’t clear by now, some spoilers for Iron Banner in Destiny 2 will follow.
One of the details discovered includes a milestone or quest that is associated with Iron Banner. Based on that, it is clear that Lord Saladin will once again be the vendor for Iron Banner. Lady Efrideet, who ran the event during the Rise of Iron expansion, is no longer involved based on this information, and instead Saladin will appear at “the Iron Banner grounds underneath the Traveler.”
In addition, it appears that the weekly and daily bounties are a thing of the past. It makes sense considering that bounties as they functioned in Destiny 1 no longer exist. Destiny 2 is now built on a system of milestones and quests. Similarly to the daily reputation milestones that refresh at each daily reset, it looks like Iron Banner will also have a daily milestone requiring players to complete 3 challenges in the Iron Banner and ending in a Reputation Bundle reward. That bundle will likely result in rewarding some sort of token that can be turned in for Iron Banner engrams.
While none of the gear that players can earned has leaked, also spotted in the database are two emblems themed for Iron Banner.
There is no telling when exactly in October Iron Banner will appear in the game, but those details may come later this week in Bungie’s weekly blog update. In addition to Iron Banner, players can also expect the Prestige mode of the Leviathan raid to debut sometime during the same month.
Destiny 2 is out now for PS4 and Xbox One, and releases on October 24, 2017 for PC.
