Season of the Splicer kicked off its first Iron Banner recently and while there are new interesting perk combinations it offers, there is also a bug crippling the experience.
Iron Banner weapon additions in Season of the Splicer consist of an Aggressive Sniper Rifle, 140 RPM Hand Cannon, a Lightweight Shotgun and a Machine Gun that is probably the least desired among the crowd.
In the case of the SR, you can Snapshot Sights and Opening Shot, making it one of the best weapons to use in the Crucible. The only drawback is the zoom level of 58, to which you can get used to after a while.
Meanwhile, Finite Impactor is a 140 RPM HC that Slideways and Iron Reach, making it have an abnormally high range while offsetting the latter perk's negative sides. Furthermore, it can roll with No Distractions which is extremely helpful against 120 RPM flinch. When paired with Multikill Clip or even Iron Grip, this weapon can offer playstyles unavailable anywhere else.
Archon's Thunder, the MG, can roll with Snapshot Sights or Iron Grip in the last perk group, making it one of the best MGs in PvP but since this is a Heavy Weapon, it won't be around often enough to make too much impact.
As for Riiswalker, the Lightweight Shotgun, it can roll with 100 Range. Now, this roll is highly unlikely to happen for two reasons:
- It requires perfect rolls from all four random parts
- It's not dropping currently.
Yup, the weapon is currently not dropping from Iron Banner Engrams so keep an eye on Bungie's social media for the fix before you waste all the tokens.
Oh and all these weapons get a neat little fire effect when you're on the hunt.
