REVITALIZING: Iron Banner breaks the monotony that the Crucible sometimes brings

However, even though it's similar to Control it still has two distinct differences. First of all, if a team takes all three zones the opposing team won't be able to take it back for a certain period of time this is what is known as "The Hunt."

During The Hunt, the players on the team that activated it will want to rack up as many kills as possible while the other team will look to survive. Once that's said and done, all zones unlock and normal play can resume.

To add to this, Iron Banner doesn't necessarily balance out Power Levels. This means that if players go into a match with higher levels they can take advantage of those below them.

Iron Banner Rewards

Ever since its introduction to the game, Iron Banner has always had the same rewards each month. However, each time they're up, they receive a bit of a change.
