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 Bungie.net.
