The Iron Banner calls Guardians to prove themselves in the Crucible. Their emissary waits in the Tower to reward those who excel.

Iron Banner is a limited-time Crucible event that is available once every month and lasts for one week. Unlike normal Crucible matches, level advantages are enabled,[1] meaning that weapons with higher Light do more damage, armor with higher Light resists more damage, and Guardians whose Light level is higher take less damage from those whose Light level is lower.

Iron Banner in DestinyEdit

The event was originally overseen by Lord Saladin prior to the Rise of Iron expansion, however it is now watched over by Lady Efrideet. Her stock includes new shaders, emblems, and high-end weapons and armor, which can be purchased for Glimmer and Legendary Marks, given that the Guardian's Iron Banner rank is high enough. She offers Iron Banner bounties which give points towards a Guardian's Iron Banner rank.[2]

Guardians must be at least level 40 or in a fireteam led by Guardian of at least level 40 to participate in the Iron Banner.[1]

The final Iron Banner event for Destiny ended on August 7, 2017.[3]


Iron Banner reputation is earned by completing Lady Efrideet's bounties and winning matches in the Iron Banner crucible playlist. Winning a match will award 250 reputation points towards the Iron Banner faction. Losing a match will grant the player a Medallion of Iron instead of reputation; the next time a match is won each medallion the player carries will be redeemed for an amount of 150 reputation. A player may carry up to 5 medallions.

Rewards are granted for completing bounties or at the end of the match. Artifacts are dropped at light level of up to 5 more than the current light level of the player.

All Iron Banner reputation is reset upon completion of the event and must be reacquired during the next event.[1] The table below outlines the reputation progression, as well as which items will be unlocked for purchase at each rank:

Iron Banner Rank Reputation Total Reputation Purchases Unlocked
Rank 1 100 100 Emblem
