Bungie Promises Changes in the Next Destiny Iron Banner Event, Thanks to Player Feedback

October 26, 2014Written by Zarmena Khan


Bungie has been seeking player feedback on Destiny’s Iron Banner events for quite some time, and even addressed some of the popular concerns raised by players. Now, the developer has promised changes that will be reflected in the next Iron Banner event. According to Bungie’s latest weekly update, the next event will require Fireteam leaders to be at level 20, and while players on lower levels can join in on the fun with a “chaperone,” they’ll have to face a challenge.

In the next Iron Banner, we will debut a much more dramatic difference between players of wide variation in Level. Because of this, the next Iron Banner will also require a Fireteam leader to be Level 20 to enter. While lower Level players may join in with their Level 20+ chaperone, they will find it very challenging. 

New exclusive reward Armor will be bumped to Level 30, but will still only be available in two slots. For advanced players, this will make them viable functional or visual sidegrades.

Weapons were already viable sidegrades for all but the most advanced players. In the next Iron Banner, the weapon types available will go from two to four, divided between drops on match victory, and purchase from Lord Saladin in the Tower.

Bungie has also said that in order to discourage people from quitting, losing teams will be given a “Medallion of Iron,” which will “convert into a reputation gain almost equal to a win.”

Are Destiny players happy with these changes?
