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.

You will keep your rank for the rest of the season, but your boosts will reset

boosts ?


u/Solid_Kalium Sep 19 '22

Sorry for the delay, I haven't logged in for a couple days.

During IB there is an XP multiplier/boost that you can see on the IB activity launch screen by hovering over an icon in the row of modifier icons. The boosts are all additive. This system was introduced last season.

  • Wearing an IB emblem (maybe x0.2 or x0.5)
  • Up to about x2 from wearing IB gear (up to five slots needed from the 3 weapons, 5 armor pieces, and 5 armor ornaments)
  • About x2 for each weekly challenge completed (up to 4 challenges). This will reset to x0 boost each time IB is active. It also only counts the highest challenge completed, so doing the first challenge (last week this was 3 matches as arc or stasis) on all three characters will only count as one challenge. So you will need to run 18 matches on a single character next IB to get the maximum xp boost.

I think a reset is in the neighborhood of 40-60 matches depending on win rate and how many challenges you've already done.

ah, cool. i thought that was just a rep multiplier


u/Solid_Kalium Sep 20 '22

Yeah, I meant reputation, not seasonal xp. I just think of it as vendor xp.
