Bungie announced the start date of the first Iron Banner event during Season of Arrivals which will bring along reprised armour and weapons, which will have new Power caps.
Iron Banner will kick off on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 10:00 AM PDT / 7:00 PM CEST. In other words, the event is coming on the next weekly reset. Besides being a massive source of pinnacle gear, it will have double Valor points in tow.
Some of the new, or rather recycled, additions include The Forward Path auto rifle and Fool's Remedy sidearm. However, they will feature new perks that will be unique to these two weapons. Iron Grip will improve weapon stability at the cost of reload speed while Iron Gaze will improve weapon target acquisition at the cost of range.
Iron Grip on The Forward Path will probably be in high demand for certain specs that have inherent reload speed bonuses, such as Chains of Woe for Gunslingers or the Ophidian Aspect gloves for Warlocks.
These two will be added the pool of six weapons, making it eight in total:
- The Forward Path
- The Fool's Remedy
- Shining Sphere
- Swarm of the Raven
- Talons of the Eagle
- Bite of the Fox
- Orewing's Maul
- Cirmil's Dagger
Furthermore, players will be able to obtain the Iron Fellowship armour sets for their Guardians. Like the weapons, these are reprised but at least we will get some good rolls throughout the event, which are sorely needed with the whole sunsetting deal.
