Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Iron Banner: Schedule, weapons, armour, and more

Lord Saladin is back during Destiny 2's Season of the Lost bringing new weapons and armour featuring an exclusive perk.
Destiny 2 Season of the Lost Iron Banner: Schedule, weapons, armour, and more

Destiny 2's Season of the Lost started with a bang, giving fans their first interactions with Savathun, the Witch Queen herself, a fresh season pass to grind, and new weapons to collect. Now, with the second week approaching, it's time for the return of Iron Banner. 

The timed PvP event featuring Lord Saladin has become one of the most popular activities for Destiny 2 players, as it often introduces new weapons and slick-looking armour into the game, with its debut in Season of the Lost being no different. 

Let's not keep you waiting and tell you everything you need to know about the first Iron Banner of Season of the Lost. 

Season of the Lost Iron Banner - Schedule

The first Iron Banner of Season of the Lost will happen during the 31st August weekly reset when Lord Saladin will show up at the Tower. You can pick bounties and a new quest from him to kick start your Banner grind. 

While the event is active, players can enter a special version of Control, the only major difference is that when a team captures all three zones a "hunt" takes place -- when this happens, the opposing team can't take any zones back for 25 seconds until they eventually reset.

Keep in mind the Iron Banner is only available during a single week each month, meaning for this first one, players have until the 7th September reset to grind.

How to participate in the Iron Banner

Now, if you're a new player, you might be wondering how to enter this event. It's fairly simple:

  • Reach Lord Shaxx in the New Light quest.
  • Speak with Lord Saladin in the Tower Courtyard.

Now, it's worth pointing out, that we do not recommend you playing Iron Banner if you're new to Destiny 2 even if you have access to the playlist, as Power Level advantages are enabled for this event, meaning you'll do less damage if you have a low PL compared to seasoned Guardians.

Season of the Lost Iron Banner - Armour

Lord Saladin is bringing a new set of armour called Iron Forerunner Set. The interesting thing about this set is that it will introduce a brand-new Perk exclusive to it, called Iron Lord’s Pride.

This is what it does:

  • Wearing a piece of this armour grants a small chance of an Enhancement Prism dropping at the end of an Iron Banner match. Each additional piece worn increases the chance, capping out at four pieces total.

How to get Iron Banner gear

Getting your hands on this gear is easy, it all revolves around Iron Banner tokens given to you by Lord Saladin. These can be acquired in the following ways:

  • Completing Iron Banner matches. Bonus point for victories.
  • Completing Iron Banner bounties.

Once you have enough tokens, give them to Saladin and he'll reward you with a piece of random gear.

On top of this, Saladin can give you a quest that will reward you with an exclusive Iron Banner weapon.
