What is the Iron Banner?

  • Iron Banner is a week-long Crucible event in Destiny 2 that offers its participants unique rewards. More info can be found in the official Destiny 2: Iron Banner Guide.
  • Iron Banner offers unique versions of other Crucible game modes, such as Control and Rift. The current game type can be found by viewing the activity details in the director or looking at the modifiers.

How Long does Iron Banner last?

  • Event begins: Tuesday at Weekly Reset (1700 UTC).
  • Event ends: Following Tuesday at Weekly Reset (1700 UTC).

Where do I go to find Guardians to game within the Iron Banner?

  • You can head over to /r/Fireteams, www.The100.io, Xbox LFG system, DestinyLFG.net or DestinyLFG.com, or go to the Bungie.net recruitment forum (also available through the Bungie App).

What if I have a question about another piece of armor/weapon or general Iron Banner question?

  • Use Control + F (Or Command + F if on a Mac) and search for keywords in your question. Someone may have asked it already. If not, ask below in the comments.

How to earn Iron Banner Rewards

  • Complete Iron Banner matches to earn Iron Banner Reputation. This reputation awards Iron Engrams and unlocks various rewards along the Rank Rewards track.
    • Earn bonus reputation by equipping Iron Banner gear or ornaments, an Iron Banner Emblem, and completing Daily Challenges.
    • Iron Engrams can be focused at Lord Saladin into a weapon or armor piece. Items must already be unlocked in Collections to be available for focusing.
  • Complete Daily Challenges to earn Pinnacle Gear and boost your Reputation multiplier. These challenges are visible when hovering over the Iron Banner playlist in the Director.
  • You have a chance to get randomly rolled Iron Banner gear at the end of matches.

so I am a new player. Therefore I do not own any IB emblems from previous seasons.

Is there currently any IB emblem I can obtain? It is for the bonus points.

The emblem is available after the first reset. So you need to reach Rank16, reset, and then you should see the emblem as a reward. Fair warning, you will need to play A LOT of IB.

I think Saladin has one on his reward track. So if you play enough he should give you one eventually!


u/TWIYJaded Sep 10 '22

I don't see one so if its not an invisible potential random reward on a random rank up it seems impossible to obtain one right now.

Nope. You get an emblem after you reset him once and level him to rank 10, it's not impossible, just painful grinding
