One of Destiny 2's premiere PvP events, Iron Banner, is finally back!
Making its first appearance in the Lightfall expansion and the Season of Defiance, Destiny 2 Iron Banner will be taking place, giving players all sorts of high-octane PvP action.
That being said... Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming Iron Banner, including its release time, rewards, and more.
Destiny 2 Iron Banner Release Time (March 14)
Finally, after more than a month without the famed PvP event, Destiny 2 Iron Banner returns on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, lasting the usual week before ending on Tuesday, March 21, 2023.
The PvP game mode will be live in-game at 1 pm EST on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, allowing players to participate in the all-out PvP. It's worth noting that Iron Banner appears directly after the weekly maintenance concludes.
To make sure you don't miss out on the fun, follow along with our countdown below to catch Iron Banner right on time.
Iron Banner Release Time (March 14)
In the past, Iron Banner used to appear on a monthly basis, overlapping with other popular events. Now, at least for Season of Defiance (Season 20), Iron Banner will appear two more times this season.
What is Iron Banner in Destiny 2?
Iron Banner is an event in the Crucible that appears a couple of times a season. Like Trials of Osiris, it's one of the marquee PvP events in Destiny 2 and offers unique armor and weapons.
To participate in the Iron Banner, players must get to Lord Shaxx in the New Light quest, and later speak with Lord Saladin in the Tower Courtyard. In the event, players can earn tokens by completing matches. These tokens can be turned into Lord Saladin for armor, weapons, shaders, and more. The armor and gear from Iron Banner are some of the best in the game.
The Iron Banner is largely centered around one mode. In the past, Iron Banner had modes such as Rift (from Destiny 1), Eruption, and lastly—and most recently, Fortress.
So far, Bungie hasn't stated which Iron Banner mode will be played in Season 20.
Iron Banner Rewards (March 14)
In the past, Iron Banner has always had the same rewards each month, which included armor, weapons, and cosmetics. However, that's changed over time. Meaning, that a new Iron Banner means a whole new set of rewards.
Much like its mode, the rewards for Destiny 2 Iron Banner have yet to be revealed. However, be sure to come back as we'll update the rewards as Bungie reveals information about them.
