Destiny's Iron Banner returns with fab new rewards, and bounties on real-life players

Destiny players, get ready to lock and load; Bungie has announced that the first Iron Banner of 2017 will run January 17 to January 24. The chosen game mode will be Clash, and a new year means new, sexy rewards. Check out the Sidearm, Rocket Launcher, and class armor you'll be able to obtain by competing and tell me you don't want to deck your Guardian out in some chainmail.

Bungie is also introducing a new type of PvP event called Bungie Bounty Days, where players are given a specific target they are encouraged to hunt down. These marks are real players notable in the Destiny community, and those who defeat them (or win alongside them) will earn a special emblem. The first of these bounties is Professor Broman, who will be playing Clash on both Xbox and PlayStation, starting at 1pm Pacific and going until 3pm Pacific.
