The Iron Banner Debuts in Destiny

Unleash the true power of your Guardian in this new Crucible playlist.

By Scott Lowe on October 8, 2014 Communications Manager, Activision
Level 11

In its first week alone, Destiny saw over 100 million hours played and since then Guardians have continued their journey by banding together to brave the Vault of Glass, take on the Queen's bounties, and more. Now, from October 7 until October 14, players will have a chance to put all of their accumulated gear, powers, and weapons to the test in the Iron Banner — a special Crucible playlist that unleashes the unique attributes of a Guardian’s armor and arsenal. Whereas Destiny’s traditional competitive multiplayer modes preserve balanced weapons and equipment, the Iron Banner lets players harness the true power of their Guardian and loadouts.

As they say, fortune favors the bold, and those that compete in the Iron Banner will be able to take on new bounties and earn Legendary weapons, armor, shaders, and more. But this is just a small taste of what’s to come, to learn more, check out Bungie’s comprehensive rundown of the trials and treasures of the Iron Banner on

Level 43

Though the Iron Banner is a cool addition, why does it last only a week? I mean, lets at least be fair and have it run for a month. For weekend players, thats only two days worth of Iron Banner.

Ikr, the bounties are a b**ch to complete!

Got to rank 1 yesterday, rank 2 will be a pain, I don't think I'll be making it to rank 3

Level 43

I got on tonight, forget ranks 2 and 3. I will achieve rank 1, get the shader and call it done. I've sunk hours and my gear is lackluster for my level 26 Hunter. Im not on even playing grounds.

Same, only thing I want at rank 3 right now is New Monarchy faction (I want that assault rifle) only rank 1 with them though pulse rifle in crucible aint to great, assault rifles though are good.

My goal is to get 500 rep+ each day.

Level 43

Im working on going to Crucible rank 3, after that Im going for Dead Orbit ranks.

Level 43

Which will hopefully occupy me until AW.

Remember, dead orbits assault rifle has very low impact, New monarchy has good impact.

Same, if I can get 1000+ rep Saturday and Sunday I can maybe have it by next week sometime, crucible all day I guess.

A little over half way to new monarchy rank 2, Its 7:21 pm here and I got until 11:00 pm, im going for rank 2!!!
