Iron Banner quest: For the War to Come

Iron Banner Season 15 Quest Destiny 2

The Iron Banner Season 15 quest is For the War to Come. This quest contains five steps, with the last one simply requiring you to speak with Lord Saladin to finish the questline. The only weapon-specific steps require defeats with a Pulse Rifle and Sidearm, so come prepared.

Step 1: Forewarned, Forearmed

Iron Banner Season 15 Quest Step 1

The first step requires you to defeat Guardians and capture zones, which is really the main goal of all Iron Banner matches. While you’re doing this, you should be getting Energy weapon kills. Make sure you’re using a weapon in your second slot to get this step finished.

  • 30 Guardians defeats
  • 15 Energy weapon final blows
  • 10 Zones captured

Step 2: Clustered Shots

Next up are more zone captures, with an added zing of completing matches (easy) and getting Pulse Rifle defeats (also, easy). Grab a Pulse Rifle you like to use or equip the one Lord Saladin gave you.

  • 20 Zones captured
  • 15 Pulse Rifle final blows
  • 6 Matches completed

Step 3: Antipode

This next step has you scoring 100 Guardian defeats, which may take a bit of time. While you’re doing this, focus on getting the kills using your abilities and capture those zones!

  • 100 Guardian defeats
  • 30 Zones captured
  • 10 Ability final blows (Solar or Stasis)

Step 4: The Final Lesson

This isn’t technically the final step, but it is the final one that requires you to play Iron Banner. For this one, equip the Sidearm Lord Saladin gave you or use your favorite and go get 15 defeats. Then, start using your Super - a roaming one might work well. While that’s all happening, keep capturing zones!

  • 40 Zones captured
  • 15 Super final blows
  • 15 Sidearm final blows

Step 5: A Finely Tuned Instrument
