The new Iron Banner returns to Destiny on October 4

So Guardian. You’ve killed Space-Satan. You’ve riddled some Fallen techno-rave bastards with bullet-viruses and you’ve tripped the light fantastic in a Vex timestream to kick some robotic ass. But are you ready for the greatest of challenges? Are you ready to deal with a menace that not even the King’s Fall raid on EXTREME mode can prepare you for? JUST LIKE YER MUM? OOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHH MULTIPLAYER TIME YO!

Yep, get used to witty banter like that, because it’s time to hit the Iron Banner in Destiny once again. Bungie has announced that the crucible of crucibles will be back for a brand new week of action from October 4, kicking off at 10 AM Pacific Time, or a more reasonable 19:00 PM on this side of the world. Supremacy will be the mode of the day, as Guardians will need to collect crests and deny a few to their opponents. It’s a rather spiffy mode for this event.

The first Iron Banner to hit Rise of Iron will also feature a big tweak. In previous events, players would earn more reputation the longer the Iron Banner went on, thanks to a Tempered effect that was applied. That effect has now been scrapped, as Bungie broke down how the event will play out:

  • The Tempered mechanic is gone – play when you want
  • There are now 4 Weekly Bounties
  • Bounty rewards include:
    • An Iron Banner item not featured on the Vendor
    • A chance at an Iron Banner Artifact or Vanity Item
    • 25 Legendary Marks
    • 750 Iron Banner Reputation
  • Victory in a match grants 250 Reputation
  • Iron Medallions grant 150 Reputation each, upon Victor
