Bungie has announced the date of the first Iron Banner of Season 11.
Lord Saladin will return to the Tower on Tuesday, June 30th at weekly reset.
For the first time in franchise history, Iron Banner will not have skill based match making. So not only should it be fun, but it might be the first time we’ve ever had a non-laggy mess of an Iron Banner. So we should have an enjoyable grind.
This Iron Banner will see two reprised weapons from the first year of Destiny 2 come back to us with random rolls:
- The Forward Path, kinetic auto rifle
- The Fool’s Remedy, solar energy sidearm
These two weapons can roll with the new Iron Banner exclusive perks:
- Iron Grip – Improves weapon stability at the cost of reload speed.
- Iron Gaze – Improves weapon target acquisition at the cost of stability.
In addition to the two reprised weapons, the Iron Banner weapon loot pool has been curated to also include six other Iron Banner weapons that are being “reissued” (these reissued weapons will have a Season of Arrivals power cap, so they’ll remain useful for the next year).
- Shining Sphere
- Swarm of the Raven
- Talons of the Eagle
- Bite of the Fox
- Orewing’s Maul
- Crimil’s Dagger
This season’s armor set will be a reprisal of the Iron Fellowship set, which originally released during Season 5. You can check out the reprised armor set with the new shader for this season and the new emblem below.
Iron Banner begins at 12pm CT on Tuesday, June 30th and runs until 12pm Tuesday, July 7th.
As always during Iron Banner, 2x Valor in all Crucible playlist from reset Tuesday until reset Friday, and 3x Valor from reset Friday through reset Tuesday.
