Iron Banner Schedule 2023 – Guardians like me always look out for the Iron Banner week. I am half decent at PvP, and this is one activity where I can easily fight against the try-hards that only play PvP because it’s not your ordinary crucible. Iron Banner has Rift, which requires players to work hard and coordinate in order to win. I’ve also heard that in Season 19, Iron Banner is getting a new mode.
Let’s find out what the next iron banner is happening.
Iron Banner Schedule 2023 (Season 20)
- March 21 – 28
- April 4 – 11
- April 25 – May 2
From Season 20 onwards Iron Banner will be on for three weeks.
Note: The dates mentioned above will be updated as I learn about the activity. Iron Banner usually arrives every 4-5 weeks. At the time of writing this article, it will be Lord Saladin’s first appearance in the Tower, with two new weapons and a whole lot of armor to offer.
Here are a few weapons that I know about that will drop from the activity or bounties:
- Peacebond – Legendary Sidearm
- Forge’s Pledge – Legendary Pulse Rifle
- Riiswalker – Legendary Shotgun
- Occluded Finality – Legendary Sniper Rifle
- Frontier’s Cry: Hand Cannon (180 RPM Precision Frame):
- Razor’s Edge: Sword (Vortex Frame)
The loot above is subject to changes made by Bungie. I will update it once Lord Saladin arrives.
Old Content below: Power Levels are not applicable anymore.
If you are under-leveled, you will have a hard time in Iron Banner. If someone with Power Level 1350 (Base) takes a 120RPM HC fight with someone of 1560 Power Level, the one with 1350 will get two-tapped. I have seen some guardians have already reached 1580 Power Levels, which is crazy, to say the least.
One thing I recommend for lower-level players to use is Pulse and Sniper Rifles. Just sit far away and shoot enemies from there. If not, you can run around capturing the objectives to help your team get the “Hunt.” Whatever you do, you’ll have a frustrating time in Iron Banner if you are a low-level guardian. So it’s best to complete activities and get the Powerful and Pinnacle gear to level up and prepare for Lord Saladin’s Iron Banner mania!
We also have the Freelance playlist now that allows you to play Iron Banner Solo. Thanks to Bungie, we don’t have to fight against six player lobbies that will pub-stomp you.
