More Destiny 2 Iron Banner challenges have arrived with the latest event, bringing the Tribute mode back and some great weapons, new and old. You know the drill by now, but if not, this season’s Iron Banner challenges require you to complete matches in the week-long Crucible event while using any of the listed Sublclasses. For this Destiny 2 event, both Darkness Subclasses – Stasis and Strand – are eligible, along with Solar, so make sure you use any of these to get some great Legendary gear and sweet Iron Banner reputation multipliers.

How to find Destiny 2 Iron Banner daily challenges

As usual, for the Iron Banner daily challenges you need to complete matches using a particular Subclass, and for this event, you've got to complete matches using a Solar, Stasis, or Strand Subclass:

  1. Complete 3 Iron Banner matches using a Solar, Stasis, or Strand Subclass
  2. Complete 4 more Iron Banner matches using a Solar, Stasis, or Strand Subclass
  3. Complete 5 more Iron Banner matches using a Solar, Stasis, or Strand Subclass
  4. Complete 6 more Iron Banner matches using a Solar, Stasis, or Strand Subclass

With progress carrying over from each challenge, that’s 18 Iron Banner matches in total. You can find out how many matches you’ve played for the Iron Banner daily challenges by opening the Destinations page, selecting The Crucible, and then hovering your cursor over the Iron Banner activity node. Select the Iron Banner node and you can check out your current Rank boost multiplier too.

You’ll automatically receive the next Iron Banner daily challenge with the daily reset for the first four days of an Iron Banner event – that’s from the Destiny 2 weekly reset on Tuesday to Friday. Confusingly, they are marked as ‘Weekly’ challenges and don’t expire until the end of the Iron Banner event on the following Tuesday, but it means you'll have all the challenges by the weekend. It's also important to note that these Iron Banner daily challenges and their rewards are character-based, not account-based, so you can complete all the above on other characters for more Destiny 2 Iron Banner loot.

Playing Iron Banner matches should also get you plenty of Bait for Destiny 2 fishing.

Once you’ve completed a daily challenge, you’ll immediately get your rewards: a Pinnacle Iron Banner loot drop and a 50% boost to your Iron Banner Rank gains. Use up to 5 pieces of Iron Banner gear – that’s any Iron Banner weapon, armor piece, or armor ornament – and any Iron Banner emblem to boost your rank multiplier even further. I recommend wearing a piece of Iron Banner armor with a different Iron Banner ornament on top as this counts as two pieces of gear.

In terms of weapons, for Season of the Wish, Lord Saladin offers the new Lethal Abundance Strand Auto Rifle, along with the reprised Point of the Stag Bow, Guiding Sight Scout Rifle, and Riiswalker Shotgun. The Iron Symmachy armor set is also up for grabs for each class, which is an old Iron Banner set that hasn't been properly available for years. Make sure you also collect any Iron Banner engrams to get random loot or spend them on Lord Saladin’s focused decoding to get any current and legacy Iron Banner gear.
