Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Iron Banner kicks off this week


It's your chance to earn the new Iron Will armour set.

The first Destiny 2 Shadowkeep Iron Banner event commences this week, Bungie recently advised.

Starting at 4.00 am AEDT on Wednesday, 16 October (or 10.00 am PDT on 15 October or check your own timezone here), the event will run until the next weekly reset at 4.00 am AEDT on Wednesday, 23 October (or 10.00 am PDT on 22 October).

The event will offer up a Valor bonus to players alongside the chance to earn the new Iron Will armour set seen above.

Moreover, the way in which you earn Iron Banner rewards is changing as follows:

  • There is a new Seasonal pursuit, which must be completed prior to being able to turn in tokens to purchase packages from Lord Saladin
      • This pursuit is character based and rewards the new S8 armor set
      • Each step of the pursuit awards Iron Banner weapons or armor
      • Most of the objectives within the pursuit track progress at any point during Season of the Undying, even if you have not yet acquired the pursuit
  • Until the Seasonal pursuit has been completed, all rewards will be obtained from completing matches and bounties
      • All rewards are weapons until the Seasonal pursuit is complete
      • The existing seven bounties that offered powerful rewards have been adjusted to offer pinnacle rewards (960 Power max,) but only four are available per event
          • We are tracking a bug in which the four bounties offered as pinnacle rewards rotate each day allowing more than four to be completed during a single event

Destiny 2 is available now on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
