With several activities having daily, weekly, and seasonal rotations in Destiny 2, it’s no surprise that people are wanting an answer to the question of ‘when will Iron Banner return in Destiny 2?’ Thankfully, we’ve got you covered with the Destiny 2 Iron Banner schedule and dates for Season of Defiance so you know when the next Iron Banner is.
Once you know the Destiny 2 Iron Banner schedule and dates, you’ll want to be prepared to take on other players. Finding out the best Destiny 2 PvP weapons is a great starting place. It’s also worth taking a look at the best Destiny 2 Titan builds, best Destiny 2 Hunter builds, and the best Destiny 2 Warlock builds to find both PvP and PvE loadouts. The Iron Banner can be a brutal place for the unprepared.
Destiny 2 Iron Banner schedule and dates for Season of Defiance
The Destiny 2 Iron Banner schedule and dates for Season 20: Season of Defiance are as follows:
- March 21 – 28: Iron Banner week 4
- April 4 – 11: Iron Banner week 6
- April 25 – May 2: Iron Banner week 9
The Iron Banner schedule and dates for Season 20: Season of Defiance may look a little different than usual. That’s because Bungie delayed the first Iron Banner of the season by a week due to a bug resulting in players being invisible. Therefore, instead of the expected two week wait between the first and second Iron Banner, there will only be a one week break.
Furthermore, due to widespread community concerns last year about the rate of reputation gain, there is also an additional Iron Banner event in Season 20: Season of Defiance. It’s expected that this change will be standard going forward.
Destiny 2 Iron Banner start time
The Destiny 2 Iron Banner start time will begin at the Destiny 2 weekly reset time. It will run for a single week before a two week break according to the above schedule.
At reset, head to the Tower to find Lord Saladin in the courtyard area. Here you’ll be able to collect special Iron Banner bounties, check Iron Banner reputation gain, and collect Iron Banner rewards. Note that you’ll only be able to do this during the time the event is active, so make sure you visit Saladin to collect your rewards before the end of the season.
And that’s the Destiny 2 Iron Banner schedule and dates for Season 20: Season of Defiance. Why not put some of the Destiny 2 Lightfall Exotic weapons and Destiny 2 Lightfall Exotic armor to the test against other Guardians while you’re grinding Iron Banner reputation?
