Destiny's next Iron Banner event begins next week

The event kicks off on April 26 and runs until 2am on May 2.


Destiny's Iron Banner, a Crucible event that takes place within tight timeframes, returns next Tuesday, April 26.

Iron Banner begins on Tuesday, April 26, at 10am Pacific, and continues through the following Tuesday, May 2, at 2am Pacific. As is the norm for Iron Banner events, you'll benefit from level advantages such as dealing higher damage when wielding weapons with higher Light damage, as well as packages engineered to increase certain ranks.

Per GameSpot, Bungie's also got a few quality-of-life fixes planned for Iron Banner, including not having to wait until hitting Rank 2 in order to earn drops at the end of a match.
