Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder is here, but when is the next Iron Banner event? Here’s everything we know about the next appearance of Lord Saladin.
Iron Banner will also no longer take power levels into account, meaning you won’t have to be quite so careful with your engagements. Trials of Osiris, however, still has them enabled.
Here’s everything we know about when the next Iron Banner arrives in Destiny 2 in Season of Plunder.
- When is the next Iron Banner?
- What is the Destiny 2 Iron Banner event?
- Iron Banner Season of Plunder rewards
While it used to arrive monthly, Iron Banner is now only available for two weeks of a season.
Bungie has revealed that Iron Banner will return on the following dates for one week:
- September 6 (Ends September 13)
- November 15 (Ends November 22)
Don’t forget, Trials of Osiris goes on hiatus when Iron Banner rolls around.
To take part, you’ll need to have met Lord Shaxx as part of the New Light (free-to-play) quest, and speak to Lord Saladin who appears in the Tower.
All players can enjoy Iron Banner — you don’t need to own any Destiny 2 DLC.
As we mentioned earlier, Iron Banner is a PvP mode found in the Crucible for two weeks of a season. It arrives at weekly reset, and leaves at the following reset, so you’ll have to play it when you can. It offers unique armor and weapons, and a new mode will rotate in each season.
Season of the Haunted’s Iron banner centered around Rift, a Destiny 1 mode that requires players “dunk” a Spark in the opposition’s goal.
Season 18 will offer a mode called Eruption, Bungie has revealed. Players will grow in power as they rack up kills, but after five they enter a “Prime” state that scores additional points but will destroy the Guardian after 15 seconds. The mode will be found in Crucible Labs first, before moving into Iron Banner.
Iron Banner rewards are being overhauled again this season, and the following are being removed:
- Peacebond – Legendary Sidearm
- Archon’s Thunder – Legendary Machine Gun
We’ll add to this when we get our gauntlets on any new weapons.
