Bungie Round Up What's New for Destiny 2: Heroic Nightmare Hunts and Iron Banner

By Heidi Nicholas,
Bungie fill Destiny 2 fans in on what's new: Heroic Nightmare Hunts are already live, but they say Legend and Master hunts aren't far behind. Iron Banner is returning, with a few changes.

Iron Banner

"Lord Saladin is about to make his first appearance in Season of the Undying. The great fires of the Iron Banner will burn again as Guardians face off against each other for bragging rights and new rewards." Iron Banner and Valor Bonus starts next week at 10:00 AM PDT, October 15, and finishes at 10:00 AM PDT on October 22. Players can earn the new Iron Will armour set, pictured above. Now, however, a new character-based Seasonal pursuit is being introduced, which has to be completed before players can use tokens to buy packages. The pursuit results in the S8 armour set, whilst each stage results in Iron Banner gear. Bungie have also made changes to reduce Heavy ammo spawn rates, and a server-side change to alter matchmaking in 3v3 Survival, Freelance: Survival, and Labs: Elimination playlists.

Hey, I'm Heidi! I've just finished studying a Masters in English Literature, but I've been obsessed with gaming since long before then. I began on the PS2 with Spyro, before graduating to the Xbox 360 and disappearing into Skyrim. I'm now a loyal RPG fan, but I still like to explore other genres — when I'm not playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, or being lured back into Red Dead Redemption 2 or The Witcher 3!
